    So with jt, Morgan, tmm and carney we have 4 rep halves at the club. 5 if you count Asiata.

    Remember the days when we only had 1 + rovelli

    1 thing that hasn't been acknowledged with the cowboys is that they have the most powerful Chairman in the comp, yes even more powerful than uncle Nick...

    Morgan isn’t on the bulk coin til next year mate.

    Lolo’s big contract started this year from memory so with the signifigant rise in salary cap this year, as someone with NFI to the inner workings obviously, but I wouldn’t think we’re legit over. We lost a couple of lower tier guys (Spina, Kaufusi, Shaun Hudson) and I’d imagine Ponga would have been on relatively decent money considering his inexperience in FG.

    We signed Maclean and Molo so it’s not like we went on a huge spending spree like Easts or Newy.

    I think you’ll see some movement out of the NQ club next year though mate. Coote won’t stay and maybe a couple of others that could go elsewhere for better coin.

    Bullshit mate.

    Lancini is wealthy but doesn’t have the pulling power uncle Nick does.

    Quite simple, the cowboys were so shit for long they are exempt from the cap.

    Hit a nerve did I?

    It's true, every one mentions the Roosters,Melbourne, Broncos etc yet the Cowboys don't get a mention when it comes to these issue.

    Ha, hit a nerve, please.

    If we were/are over, then throw the book at the club. You won’t find me defending them if they cheat.

    But you know. You gotta cheat first to get done for cheating......

    Please do tell why you think we would be over the cap?

    We have a huge nursery of kids in NQ, and whilst it took a while for the club to actually take advantage of this, you are now seeing the reason why we have a club in NQ.

    The players that are locals could have probably left for more money but being near your friends and family and a cheaper cost of living are some huge positives for them to stay for less.

    beave, I would not waste my breath on him mate. PH has a closed mind and things like facts won't alter his beliefs.

    I’m firmly in the Noel Solomon/Jonatha Davies camp.

    Outside of the obvious big earners at NQ, there are a lot of good jobbers in the team who wouldn't demand huge coin at all.

    Would Carney play FB for the Cows?

    He'd be depth in case of injuries I think.

    TMM should be ahead of him in the halves. I'd prefer giving Carlin Anderson a run before Carney at fullback too, he could potentially replace Coote long term if he fires.

    The NRL didnt want to register Carney when he was talking to Manly. Now that it's the Cowboys we will see if Toddberg suddenly changes his mind.

    Surely you can't be serious with this..? I mean, really? They aren't even in the same universe with regard to the seriousness of the offences...
