    Agreed. They need to be de-registered. Don't care who it is.

    Some players need to make a decision - 500K a year for a few years or get some schooners up ya guts, go to work all week for f**k all and assault a cab driver on your w/e.

    FFS. What is wrong with them?

    The talk about bringing the game into disrepute etc I get. But if ur involved in a private skirmish and the police arent involved.... then what ? Even that isnt allowed ? Pretty harsh IMO. I understand high standards of public behavior etc but we cannot and should not expect these guys to be saints.

    Not much these days is private. I don't like that fact but these blokes are well educated about it.

    Again, the grog is the common problem here isn't it?

    Pearce has had enough chances and warnings and punishments. Surely he can't f**k up again? Just lol if he does.

    Toohey saying Moga is on $380k a year and it's possible he'll be sacked.

    Not a position we have a lot of depth in unfortunately.

    You used to get away with a lot back in the day, but you also got paid a shitload less. I don’t give a shit how good the player is, we don’t want that kind of muppet in our team. Didn’t we have a player that went to jail for hitting a Taxi Driver? Fa’oso/Tetevano?

    If they don't sack him, then they'll definitely fine him, and if 25% of their salary is the penalty, then that's a very expensive slap

    Hard to imagine that a player with record of lots of bad/serious injuries, working hard to return to field would put himself in a situation that could cost his career and financial well being, doesn't say much for his mind set or career/club ambitions.

    Thats a good amount to shop for a replacement. Probably gets us Michael Jennings if the Eels are still looking to offload him. ESL perhaps.

    Not that I want him sacked.

    The thing about Moga is I’m not sure he’s actually that good.

    He'd have to be long odds to play many games imo anyway.

    Don't you mean the Kiwi Prop Russell Packer who was put in the Big House before he even attended pre-season training under Wayne Bennett, now a totally reformed Human Being with a Uni Degree.

    He should never have been allowed to play league again. He had been thrown out of a club, then assaulted someone and also stomped on the guys head.

    He can go and live off his Uni degree.

    Massively overrated aswell. Gets big raps regularly for doing sweet f**k all.

    He talks to Journos though so he’s a hero and role model for all apparently.

    He did his time in jail and entitled to a new beginning. Good luck to the fella.

    I pray Ross never sees first grade. Fringe player and not what we need in a back 3 to give the comp a shake. Hunt or one of our up and coming young players for mine.
