    Does Anthony Seibold have a nickname, with the mob he's got at his disposal just to have been a Bellamy apprentice won't be scary enough to frighten the opposition. He'll earn the tag 'Messiah' if he pulls a f**king rabbit out of a hat in Redfern

    Losing Crichton isn't as big a deal as letting Crichton be poached, a vibe-killer extraordinaire to match the Groundhog Day Group he'll be expected to reincarnate. The not so funny thing is that if Anthony doesn't work a miracle he'll have to answer to Rusty, who it seems has as beautiful a mind as Gagai . . . f**k knows what Dane is thinking, maybe he wants to keep the nickname 'Martyr'

    They do have the rich tradition of RL on the Coast going for them.

    They don't need it any more than Melbourne did, any shithole can house the leading RL club team on the planet given the right circumstances

    Bellamy and his entourage just happen to be operating out of Melbourne, they could just as easily be operating out of Perth or the Gold Coast. The Storm could've been a replica of the current GC since '98 and my decision to shitstir my family/friends by buying a jersey would've backfired big time . . . thank f**k there's a Footy God watching over me

    Judging by recent pictures of Kasiano I may have to review assessment of him, it's now easy to remember he's only 27, a year older than McLean. Makes you wonder which other players would've shaped up if they were told they'd be shipped out if they didn't

    Doesn't have to be just weight orientated, I'm sure Sam will be getting bags full of 'inspired thinking' and not merely the brown paper type. If 'culture' makes such a big f**king difference . . . following instructions, injury management, fitness management, camaraderie . . . why doesn't every club make a big deal out of it

    Not as if players are made to wear a 1% patch and be ready to die for each other . . . maybe being stranded on a desert island helps. The Seagles used to kind of live in a world of their own, the Cowboys do and the Knights have the makings. Raiders were once-upon-a-time culture driven, maybe the new breed have had their balls shriveled by the cold

    . . . I forgot the Roosters, the cocoon they live in certainly helps

    The tragic death of Ottio should make a big difference in the new world of player welfare management. If a man from his part of the world has succumbed to the heat it's not hard to imagine how close the Brits came when and where they were asked to play the World Cup

    Any pig hunter will tell you what happens to a dog when it's body temperature exceeds 38 degrees and refuses to rest, there is no coming back and a gruesome sight, a lesson only having to be learnt once. Now perhaps the NRL will think twice about taking the game to Darwin or parts nearby . . . no-one looks for pearls in Sydney Harbour

    Each year the game is becoming more physically demanding, another death from over exertion no matter whose fault will give the media a field day. Training and playing RL at those latitudes during daylight has always been irresponsible

    As far as I'm concerned the next best thing to being a one-club-player advocate is taking the completely opposite view. None of that f**king wishy washy crap where players say they must make a 'career' move, forced to greener pastures to feed their families

    Maloney says the change will do him good but the truth is he's worn out his welcome at the Sharks, he rightfully thinks his shit doesn't stink because he wins games . . . or at least shows the way. He's fairdinkum, something the NRL is not when they don't protect clubs from poaching one-clubbers, James is only taking the piss when he says he's looking forward to 'helping Penrith's youngsters'

    What he's really looking forward to is again taking a club from rags to riches, a club that might've got there sooner or later without him but has the means to explode with success that can be attributed to his good self. No-one tells James what to do, everything he does is for his benefit alone . . . why not when the game is run by people with the same agenda

    At last, something of real interest in the off-season aside from doom and gloom, the Belmore Boardroom Battle. Old timers like myself will tell you there was no harder team to play than the once great Bulldogs that were ruled by Peter Moore, the man easily a match for Nick Politis

    If the Dogs can be taken back to the days when 'culture' was born in Canterbury Bankstown we again might see the mighty juggernaut roll over all before it. Of course changing the hierarchy won't be enough, the Dogs will have to breed pups again rather than buy them already trained . . . but at least it may be a start

    Not sure the current street culture of SWS is conducive with the dreams of the remnants of the Moore dynasty but if they can get more youngsters in the area to play RL, create one-clubbers, they will be doing Australia a favour

    Freddy's off to a good start, getting the NSW boys together to train under the hot sun with the blessing of the clubs, shows the power of the man. Would've been smarter to train under lights at the same cooler time of day Origin is played but electricity is so f**king expensive these days

    Mate, it's only the emerging players squad. I don't think he needs to simulate battle conditions just yet. At this stage he'll learn more from a players attitude on a hot "day off".

    I can't see anything wrong with being a mercenary when you provide value to clubs like Jimmy does - who knows, he might be able to drag Penrith over the line.
    Loyalty is easier to achieve when sponsorship money is falling like ticker tape at the Broncos.
    Mind you I would have been pissed off if Nathan Hindmarsh finished off his career at St George or Manly.

    Nothing wrong with it all, I prefer Maloney's pay-up-or-shut-up philosophy over pretentious club swapping . . . in his first year with Penrith he will make them real hard to beat

    This forum is the only sector of social media I participate in, according to Wiki there are more than a dozen ways people can interact without physically talking to each other. I've never even sent a text to anyone, my little fliptop mobile phone has a red and green button and a list of 'contacts' . . . that's all I need to know

    Can't imagine how much shit I'd get into if I got involved in Facebook etc, my missus has threatened my life if I ever touch her 'page'. I don't post links or pictures because I couldn't be bothered going to the trouble of remembering how, so what you read from me is all you're ever going to get . . . luckily

    The point is, hypocritical as it may sound, if I thought Hayne for example was actually reading this forum I would cease incessantly denigrating him as being overrated. I reckon I'm easily capable of cyberbullying anyone but content to just have a little fun retaliating to jibes on here

    Having grand children of my own and seeing that young lass suicide is a reminder that people have limits, there's a fine line between abstract and direct intimidation. News media are by far the worst bullies but it is wise to consider how many small parts make a whole, not nice to realise a cynical push can turn to a mental shove

    Can you also confirm that you have been joking all this time about your love of Bellamy.
    You really agree with us all that he has been the ruination of the code right???

    I can confirm that 'us' is a smaller version of US and leaders of both suffer the same malady . . . an answer to your question would only be fake news

    Crikey, either Twizzle is playing funny-buggers or someone has started upping this thread's views by the thousands . . . wonder what poor obsessive soul would do that

    Not that I'm complaining mind you . . . I have trouble getting a reflection from my mirror

    If Dean Pay wants Woods to hurt opposition players like he did, maybe he should've kept Graham to show him how. James would've fitted a lot better if he played before 'NRL', Dean would've been less effective if he played the modern game, Dogs' supporters will hope the new direction isn't a roundabout

    Won't be long before players carrying the ball will be banned from shoulder charging, should be the final nail in the coffin of 'intentional hurt', it's the last hurdle for the do-gooders. Block busting forwards would do better to concentrate on off-loading rather than pain, elbows/shoulders/foreheads are outdated

    I wouldn't put it down to just "someone" Pops, your thread generates a lot of interest from many forumers because you have some rock solid opinions on rugby league that are worth reading about. That's why your thread is in the main NRL forum while that other, lesser, pure imitation thread has been relegated to the cave where it belongs. You should give yourself more credit Pops.

    Also on Gagai, I reckon you're just taking the piss in that dark horse thread trying to get a nibble, but defense is a big part of a centre's game. It's not all about scoring tries but stopping them as well. Centre is the hardest position to defend in a team but the best centres in the game are proficient at it. I hope Gagai improves his defence but the truth is he was a big liability for my team in that regard.
