    Crush and as he gets older and loses pace he wont have much as he relies on beating players with his determination strength . So for me he will be less dominant as he cant beat a player with a good pass or setup play . Yea he has his good points but also bad points , so for the money he was asking IMO Id want a better smarter player that can pass and setup plays ......

    I feel physically sick at the prospect of the roosters getting Crighton aswell. And I'm sure they will, they've been doing it for so many years now, they always get their man.

    I suppose it's all up to Pearce now. They're making out they want him, I just hope he's stupid enough to believe it. Fingers crossed.

    Crighton is a superstar in the making, we would be fools not to make a big play for him.

    Yep, it's the over inflated opinion of his own importance. It's pretty funny when you think about it.

    If that’s the case we wont get close to what the Roosters would be able to offer.

    If the roosters want and he wants to go .
    They will get him.
    I hope he stays with the bunnies.

    You can't buy comps.

    Since 1976 Roosters have won 2 , we have 3.

    I mean I've said it before, they have proven you don't need juniors that money makes them somewhat successful, but let's face it it's won them f**k all in the scheme of things.

    Depends how you measure success.

    I can’t recall them ever going through a 5 year stretch of mediocrity like we have recently. They are always there or thereabouts competing for the comp. Whilst we are nowhere.

    But I get your point, I’m terms of comps, I think they have under achieved given their resources. Hence I don’t think they are mucking around any more. It’s comp or bust.

    Huhh? But they have tried to show they weren't mucking around many times in the past 10 yrs (past 50 yrs) ..... but still came up short.

    Even won the spoon in 2009.

    And 2016 wasn't much better.

    If anyone thinks cronk will deliver a premiership, I think they are sadly mistaken.

    Even with Smith and Slater, he didn't deliver many premierships for the storm.

    The roosters have a culture problem, Cronk can't fix that... lol

    Agree
    But nlr needs to be a even playing field for all teams.
    Makes it even sweeter when we beat them

    But that's the thing. Yes they won the spoon in 2009, but they were in he GF the year after and won the comp a few years later as part of a stretch of 3 straight minor premierships.

    Since 2011, we have hovering between 8th and 13th without ever being serious contenders. As fans, I think its sad that we haven't had a team to cheer for deep in the semis (like Roosters and Cows, Storm etc).

    I'd take a spoon one year if it meant 4-5 years of continued success with multiple top 4 appearances. Much better than our situation where we never have a team in serious contention to win the comp.

    It's been 5 straight years of shit for us.

    I understand your point of view, but supporting a team of players like Cronk, Tedesco, JHW.....and numerous players bought from many other clubs.

    Seriously, as a supporter I would not feel any connection whatsoever to support them.

    It's a foreign legion of players I have grown to dislike at other clubs for years. (Not all of them I dislike)

    Fans, need a sense of connection to the players, a club with some loyalty to its fans and players, a club that does develop some of its own players.

    All these things the roosters have a big fat ZERO.

    That is why they can't drag more than 8,000 of their own fans to games.

    That is why they have never built a sustainable culture for success.

    Being a fan of a club like that?

    PUKE!!!!

    I would much rather be us, the mighty dragons, a club with SOUL.

    .....we will be fine once the club works out we need a professional coaching team.
