    When you say the roosters just sacked their captain, do you mean Cordner or friend??

    It’s all selective to suit an agenda though isn’t it?

    Instead of saying 42 yrs, you could of said 44 yrs, which would of made your argument less potent because all of a sudden they have 4 premierships. Or you could of said since the millennium, the roosters have won 2 grand finals, and contested in 4 others which would make them the most successful club since the turn of the century, while other clubs have been embarrassingly kicked out of the comp, or sold their souls and teamed up with another club due to no love and support, or done for cap cheating or drug cheating or been bailed out by the NRL so they don’t go under to keep the television rights commitment.

    Some may rate success only by the amount of competitions won, but clearly there is more to it.

    Why would anyone look to improve the numbers when pointing out a team's failures?

    Getting cocky by saying they now have a better team than Souths? The team who ran 12th?

    I think you are overstating things a little

    I reckon they ARE planning 5 years ahead and it started 2 years ago, signing and old guy for two years, getting rid of Pearce. Id be surprised if there isnt at least one Cleary there in 2-3 years, probably two.

    Will the Roosters look to reduce Angus' pay now there is going to be less of him? What's half a middle finger worth?

    Apt that he's decided to leave his middle finger with Souffs!!

    A mate of mine is a Panthers fan. Cleary was seen at an Infiniti dealer.

    Infiniti don't have links to Penrith nor does Cleary have a third party deal with them but my mate does believe some Roosters players get around in them.

    Make of that what you will.

    And for the record, if the Roosters can do it, good on em. Nothing stopping other clubs doing same.
