    My point precisley! I.e. other clubs fans spinning crap to their own jealous agendas. Guess what mr Rabbits. The Dragons have more immortals than the rabbits and YES we are very proud of our history which I will do my best to have it reinstated.

    Precisely Frank Facer. The Roosters have only survived on money and roarts alone. They actually have the smallest local junior comp in NRL

    Don't be too perturbed, I don't see you as a troll as you make some good points. Just have to put up with some bitchy old men on this forum:heart_eyes:

    If you respect our great club and our great history you will not find any reactions.
    Key word RESPECT!

    Oh Frank !! 40K stadiums, Steelers back ??? If Dragons became stand alone it definitely would be one more Sydney club and then the NRL would relocate us to Perth.You may be happy for this to happen but I would not.

    If I was a billionaire and bought us and got back to a stand alone St George Dragons, there is no way we would be relocating to Perth or anywhere else for that matter.

    The only thing protecting us from the relocation crap is we already have gone down the road of JV.

    Politis is protecting Easts from relocation, Packer and co are protecting Souths. If I was a billionaire, I would be protecting us from relocating. Hopefully I become a billionaire pretty soon.

    As I previously said, when we merged (Joint Venture), it was under the understanding that there would be no more than 14 teams in the comp.

    I would be relocating Canterbury or Cronulla. Canterbury can be relocated to Canterbury Christchurch and Cronulla can be relocated to Adelaide, they do have a lot of sharks off SA.

    Not sure if it’s been mentioned but the Dragons official website states that we have won 16. It also say we have a long history dating back to our inception, including 11 straight premiership wins. Don’t think our history has been eradicated at all.

    Perhaps the nrl and dragons should set the media straight particularly very big players foxtel who show us winning 1 comp only. Wikipedia are probably referencing foxfels website.

    SBW will go to where the money is. We have a reported 900k just sitting there and are having trouble on our left edge. Sign SBW before the June cut off. With Frizell, JDB and SBW as our run on backrow, we will be the heavy weights of the competition.

    Possm, who reported we have $900k just sitting there?
    I doubt that very much.

    Last Friday SMH reported rumors that Nick Politis will pull the pin at the end of this season, marking the exit of two of the longest serving CEO's in the NRL (with Doust). Candidates for his replacement include David Gyngell ex Channel 9 boss, and Mark Bouris a prominent business figure & CEO of Wizard Home Loans. This is the caliber of executive that the Rorters aim for, not Old Boys Club ex players and hangers on. Apparently there is a running joke doing the rounds that the Roosters have a "Salary Sombrero", not a Cap like other clubs after the signing of Cronk, Crichton & Tedesco. I think the reality is that they are astute enough to massage the existing rules on TPA's to their advantage and had a figure like Politis who could sell a deal to any player they wanted.
