    It’s not offensive at all. Just funny how you word it like you are talking directly to him. Don’t take me to seriously, I don’t

    Especially since BA mentioned in the press conference that he just signed a 3-year extension.

    At least the 1991 team had excuses and not just the BS ones made up by Pou.

    It was four years, but the fourth year is an option in his favour.

    I couldn't hear the details as I immediately started honing my straight razor.

    What were the excuses that the 1991 team had?

    Pretty much this, Fitzy not spending anywhere near the cap for players while he built his pokie palace.

    I believe there may be some truth to it.

    I remember an article about the early 90's whether sterling and Fitz met with a current origin forward to discuss signing with the eels. Sterling mentioned the forward would have signed with us if Fitz had slightly increased our offer which he refused to do.

    How does that link in with the allegation that Fitzy was using some of the NRL cap for the licensed club renovations ?

    Everyone knows how shit the squad was back then, and all the money was getting funnelled into the Leagues club.

    From 89-95 we spent the bare minimum and relied on Juniors it wasn’t till the superleauge war that Fitzy opened the purse strings. Didn’t we win just 3 games in 95??? You reckon we were spending all we could on players???

    Gronk defending his mate Fitzy.

    Hardly a surprise just look at the team and the results for the 6 years I’m talking about.

    Fair enough, but the implication from the article was Fitz refused to spend on the side to instead focus on the club.

    Actually I was more angling that for a f**king long time the NRL has given the clubs 100% of the cap. So how do you then spend some of it on a pokie den ?

    BTW Fitzy was never my mate. I just disliked Spags more.

    Don’t you mean ARL??

    The NRL didn’t exist till 98, and it was only ever a grant the clubs could do as they please with it. They could of blown it on Coke and Hookers if they wanted(Bern I’m looking at you)

    It’s only till recently that clubs have had to spend 90% of the cap so there was nothing to stop Fitzy back then to spend as little as he pleased.

    And not a mate of Fitzy’s???? You defend the bloke every chance you get .
