    This is in bad taste. We all poke fun at each other here a lot of the time, including gay sex references. But, this is on another level. Poor form even for you.

    For you, the Brisbane river in flood time. For El D, the Todd River on race day.

    Either that or a homophobe, I'm just trying to figure out which it is, so I understand what i'm dealing with.

    I'm guessing homophobe..

    He's bald, so there's an immediate hate right there. Not from me, though there's others who could confirm that to be true.

    Can anyone tell me why BA is so averse to buying a quality 9? Until he does we will continue to be shit, no matter how many lanky props and useless halves he buys

    Which quality 9s have been on the market recently that you think he should have chased harder?

    Segyaro, Farrah, Korisau, Parcell, McInnes, Peats have all been off contract in the last season or two and are far better than our plodders. I believe Isaac Luke may also be wanting a return to Sydney in 2019. Unfortunately BA has a man crush on Pritchard and Smith.

    He is about the same as Pritchard and King. We need a good 9, not an average one

    Mahoney has the luxury of playing in a team that is out of finals contention. What I mean is, he has 8 games to cement the 9 position without the pressure of having to play finals football. He's only played a couple of games so far FFS!

    Mahoney could turn out ok in a few years but we need to be aiming higher than him for 2019 if we want to be a team in finals contention

    Then why did you list a bunch of average ones?

    We were linked to a Peats return, but he stayed at the Titans on massive overs if you ask me

    Yeah. The best of the options that he listed but also the most unlikely. We would have had to pay a scoont-load.

    lol. 2 have played origin, McInnes and Api are both next in line for origin. Even Segyaro and Parcell are better options. Segyaro has played 120 + NRL games. They each have more talent (and are less injury prone) than our guys combined.

    How would you know if he is on massive overs? When other teams buy players we miss out on everyone here says they paid overs. But apparently newspaper reports of our guys salaries are all exaggerated and we don't pay overs.

    The money we saved by not signing Peats probably allowed us to re-sign King and Will Smith as well as purchase Kane Evans. Great!
