    Although I'm pretty sure your tongue is firmly in your cheek with that comment, I'm going to bite........

    This belief that Brisbane provide all this value to the TV deals is just a fallacy. They would provide next to nothing in value for Fox. And the value for 9 would be, at best, 1/3 of the deal. And that's only because people in Brisbane refuse to watch any team other than Brisbane. This is why they are always on FTA. 9 have 2 markets for advertising, and they know that their audience is doubled for a Brisbane game in Brisbane than it is for a game featuring 2 teams from Sydney. Despite the fact that the Sydney audience will be larger.

    It's just delusional garbage from delusional people that think anything else. The league would be 30m a year worse off without Brisbane. That's it.

    Is that true though? Not saying it isn't but I've seen it said so many times without any shred of evidence presented. I wonder if it is one of those urban myths that has become fact because it has been said so many times?
    Just last week Melbourne v Souths rated higher on FTA than Broncos v Roosters overall.
    The Brisbane audience was 131,000 for the Broncos game and 120,000 for the Storm game, just a 10% difference.

    Milford at fullback is in company with Teddy, TT and RTS.
    In the halves he's like Ash Taylor, Shaun Johnson and Hunt.

    At least at FB Milf will be forced into shedding some weight. He isn't offering anything in the 6 so might as well.

    Yep no balance. A lot of EXTREMELY talented youth and the few experienced blokes are happy to just see out fat contracts. Milford quickly showing his loyalty activating his extra $1M option - inspirational effort.

    I can't believe I'm saying this but ... ooft! Here goes. Gordon Tallis raised a good theory.

    They're picking blokes on whether they're 6'3" and 100kg+ without considering character.

    Broncos would transform overnight almost with a Jeremy Smith, Luke Lewis type of signing. I'd go big for a bloke like Dale Finucane if I were them.

    Spot on. JT has said it put a chip on his shoulder. Cam wasn't quite as blunt but admitted beating Brisbane in Brisbane is always a highlight.

    f**k that's depressing. We've been robbed as fans. This McNugget should be keeping Teddy and Turbo biding their time in the outside backs of the Kangaroos.

    Something which stood out that I'd forgotten about him is the cheeky smile and just following every runner in hope. Now he rarely smiles and looks like he's lost all hope. Gone from a cheeky character to Darius Boyd. Needs a quack, even just a 2nd year psych student on the drive-thru would be a good start.

    I just dont get Seibold. Why would you bring on an 18yo fullback in the 70th minute of a 2 point game. Not just a straight switch, he shuffles the current fullback into hooker to accommodate another teenager? Im sure Niu is a gun but to get thrown on in that situation is doing him no favours, and having a fullback play hooker to just get the kid on is dumb

    Broncos showed the perils of a young team last night, even when they play well young teams often switch off just a bit once they get out to a decent lead, that little drop off in intensity then gives the opposition a sniff.

    He doesnt have the drive or attitude to get himself and keep himself in front of teddy and turbo, no chance no matter where he played his footy. As soon as he got that big pay day he blew out.

    To be fair on the last point he a great year in 2015 and probably deserved the Clive Churchill medal in the gf. I don't think Hunt's up and down form did him any favours. On top of this he looked really good against the Bunnies in round 2. Can't argue the first point though.

    Yeah fair enough, he is still a super talented player who is going have plenty of great games but I just dont see him ever reaching the heights he really should.

    Nah, in the back end of 2015 and for most of 2016 he looked the best he had ever done in the 6.

    Other posts have covered it here, it’s the attitude that’s his fault, not the number on his back.
