    Just read on the Nine website that a Joel Thompson is about to be traded to Manly.
    If this is true, then what do you think will happen to our well performing pack of forwards.
    Something about this does not make sense.
    Why would we let one of our best forwards go to Manly with one more year to run on his contract?
    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Manly would be offering him a better contract probably.

    Unless they take McGregor as well and we get Barrett it's a no from me. To me he's like Nightie, bleeds red and white.

    Maybe freeing up some money for a top line player. Moylan / RCGillard / Whare....Cronk even???
    This will allow Simms back into 2nd row and allow the many younger backrowers to have an opportunity to be backup.
    Don't think we would want any of Manly's roster.
    Hoping its for RCG and then some backline talent and speed.
    How far can we stretch Thompsons cap funds??

    Take it from a pennies fan RCG is going no where and Whare re-signed with us at the start of the year for 5 years.

    Surely the only way we would entertain the fact is that there was something much bigger in play?

    This is bullshit in the highest order, The Mole's got his second rowers with the last name Thompson wrong.

    Bodene Thompson is the one heading to Manly, not Joel.

    Look no further than our board of imbeciles.
    If this goes ahead, it means we get rid of players we want to keep and we keep an impostor of a coach....... work that one out.
    I'm glad my bar at home is open as we speak........... Bartender!

    If so then why we signing Latimore ????
    I have no qualms if we bring our young stars forward and give them more than 10mins on the field .... but i ask again why sign Latimore ???
    I'd rather keep thompson for the extra year put Latimore's money towards securing our booming youngsters.
