    ;)

    The only reason for the spin of playing in remote areas was to force the govt's hand. They were always going to shut it down after the AFL.

    Oh well at least I can get rid of my Kayo subscription now, that money will come in handy when I lose my job in a month at best.

    I wonder if they'll refund the $5 special offer that was being promoted last week.

    All the best to you Forbes Creek. Folks need to stick together during these times.

    I’m not quite up to speed on the Dragons financial health but any views on how long a run way we have ? Assume a statement from the new CEO is imminent

    This is a real disappointment but in the scheme of things it had happen.
    I hope everyone keeps safe from this virus.
    Stay healthy

    He would have been counting his rosary beads since his last contract extension. 570K, 580K, 590K

    Well looks like I've got nothing to do on the weekend but watch porn and do housework.

    What’s been made abundantly clear the last few weeks now that the financial position of the NRL and the clubs have been somewhat exposed has been the total mismanagement of cash for a number of years.

    Clearly, a $9.8 million salary cap and the massive grants to the clubs for a game that averages 13-15k crowds was never going to be sustainable.

    Not sure what the game will look like when this is all said and done but expecting 750k per year salary and above for 20 something athletes barely out of school is going to be a thing of the past.

    Common sense prevails at last .

    The players should not had to suffer the angst of being separated from their love ones , let alone take the risk of contracting the disease which would had occurred eventually.

    Go home boys and be with your families and do the best for them as each one of us must do . May this insidious plague be gone as quickly as possible so the world can return to normality.

    Its hard times man, im predicting worse than the Great Depression. This fall has come faster and harder than then and people are half a million in debt. 10 times their annual wage in some cases. This has never happened before. Even watching NRL 360 its very sobering, no shit talking at all Vlandys knows full well the NRL may very well not survive this.
