    Ex players = The Foran soup.
    Everyone wants a taste, and the best part is he passes thru towns. But be quick as it never lasts long and prices are subject to change without notice.

    My problem with it (and problem is probably too strong a word) is then this probably means they're going with a blanket procedure regardless of what occurred. Which is fine, but then Hayne.. and you can say all you want about he wasn't a current player, but they broke their procedure for his contract, and regardless of whether the team was NRL controlled or not, it isn't great look when you have procedures for some

    understands the Tigers have attempted to save face with their fans by taking the 'higher ground'

    A staff member said it in private when I asked him directly but it wasn't the Chairman.

    From the NRL doc that Gronk quoted (emphasis added):

    ...a contract signed with a rival club will be registered once a 10 business day cooling off period expires.

    There was no rival club in the case of Hayne.

    Good on them for pulling their offers. They are completely fcking the club over by not making a decision. The captain has carried on like a twat and teddy was always being paid on potential, and they persevered with him despite serious injuries.

    And now the players will say they had no other choice but to take other offer as tigers pulled theirs. Moses 2.0
    But I'm ok with the Moses one ;)

    Please make at least some effort to appear as if you take the salary cap seriously. People are starting to catch on.

    Yours (and I mean that),

    Here's a rumour. I believe Ricky Stuart's going to blow up at the groundsmen.

    I guess we're going to be re-audited in 2017. And they'll sweep the amounts dogs and roosters are respectively paying the other two clowns under the carpet.

    Coz the dogs have never been punished for cap breaches before......

    FFS, we got done coz we cheated in the stupidest way possible, and left evidence all over the shop. When someone else does that and is let off, I'll concede there's a conspiracy against us.

    My point wasn't that there's a conspiracy against us. My point is that roosters and dogs get away with blue murder, re salary cap.

    ....and your evidence for that assertion is what? That they sign better players. They may well cheat, but they also have better networks of third parties (like the Broncos), which will give you an advantage even if you don't cheat. And if/when they do cheat, they're probably not dumb enough to videotape the discussion of it.
