    furthermore, I dare say we have no spare cash. Simona's dickhead antics has essentially ensured we're under the cap.

    With no Farah or Sironen on the books next year and if we can get Naiqama, Rankin and Idris new homes, we will have some coin and should be able to upgrade all four of Teddy, Woodsy, Brooksy and Mitchy and may even have enough spare to buy a player or two, if we aren't f**king stupid.

    Depth is a huge issue at the club, so we can't just settle on upgrading those 4.

    merkin, did he cost us a finals berth last year?

    Wipe him from the clubs history/future.

    Agree again..lol
    I know its only 1 game so far but gee Idris doesnt look good at all.
    Hes really too slow for our backline..He would stifle it.
    Try him as a forward in reserve grade first.See how he goes

    First thing Tim should do is get a DECENT haircut before he applies for another job...

    Exactly my thoughts. A cheater should not represent our club at all whether it be past or future endorsements

    He is forgotten. Doesn't exist anymore

    Could well have cost us semis last year this merkin.

    Semi final experience would have been invaluable for the younger players, and may have helped ensure we retain the likes of Tedesco and Moses.

    Who knows how much damage this merkin has done?

    Realistically he has done us a huge favour by getting de-registered - getting us under the cap, getting Chee Kam into the team, and freeing up some cash for signings.

    Nope.

    Can't imagine he was on massive money, so hasn't freed up a large enough amount of money to sign anyone decent.

    He's also a better player than Chee Kam.

    Every aspect of this story is sad,a young man wasting his NRL career,for cheating on his club,team mates and fans,than when you think his moral compass can't get any lower he pockets charity money.

    His apparent modest bets could have cost thousands to others.. JT may have lost his job for not making the 8 , sponsors may have bonus clauses in their investments which the club missed out on , and finals football atracting future sponsors..
    f**k this gambling addiction crap !! There are a million gambling options out there without selling out those who play with you and those who contribute to your very well paid lifestyle
    Add to that the charity stuff..
    TIM SIMONA YOU ARE A PIECE OF SHIT !!

    We have no idea what was going on behind the scenes. He may have been blackmailed into arranging these bets or match fixing. I'm not supporting what he did in any way shape or form, or even trying to make excuses, but the club should still ensure his wellbeing while this is carried out.

    Greenberg seemed more pissed about the charity auctions that the bets.

    It just all comes under bringing the game into disrepute.

    He was one of if not my favourite player. I feel sorry for him in some ways for being addicted to gambling but he has done some pretty low shit. Imagine selling your jersey for charity but just pocketing the money.

    What he has done is f**ked up. I suppose he has no money and no job now when he was earning a cool couple of hundred grand per year.

    Please dont take this the wrong way -
    Firstly I am glad hes gone - the game is trying to be as clean as possible, which is great and given we are probably due something stupid from Dogs fans this year, lets try and keep it as clean as possible.

    The concern was not that he auctioned items for charity and didnt give them the money.
    The charity in question said they were surprised with the low level of donation.

    So from the outset, he was going to auction some stuff off and donate a portion to charity.

    This is very very common.

    You guys knows the "kids with cancer" guys that raffle off cars in shopping centres?

    I used to date a girl that worked for the major children's cancer charity in Australia and she told me this car raffle company was a private company and donated a "portion" of their gains to Children's cancer.

    Nowhere in their stands do they use the word "portion"

    The same thing does for the guy that has backbackers selling the foam Raindeer ears at Christmas.

    Im only saying this as my view is yeah he did the wrong thing, but he has been punished for it. He shouldn't be vilified for doing something that others do routinely.

    Is it dodgey - yeah, but hes paid the price - he's lost his livelihood.

    Matter is closed - ets set up for a great year of making the 8 and winning the premiership.

    To bad for the idiot that he didn't appreciate that he was in a very privileged position as an elite sportsmen who was paid well & lauded by sycophantic groupies who inflate the egos of ingrates like him.

    f**k him how can anyone have sympathy for a prick who betrayed us in the worst way possible & is bereft of a moral compass !

    There's a reasonable likelihood this scumbag cost us a spot in the 8 last yr & if not well the evidence demonstrates by his unforgivable misdeeds that he did his best to ensure we wouldn't play finals footy !
