    What are the "real reasons"? Fact is, unless we convert into a Roosters or Storm with a few marquee players and others following their lead, We won't win.

    It's not that we can't win without a stacked roster, but we'll never be more than a 20-25% chance even in our best year.

    He’ll be here in 2022*

    *unless 2021 is a 2018 repeat.

    He won’t be in 2023*

    *unless we make/win GF in either year and even then maybe not

    Just move the dial up to FM 104.9 and rewind about 90 minutes.

    Paywalled, but the comments on twitter suggest that the reason behind it was more about equality than budget or covid bubbles.

    I didn’t notice, but many clubs have already done this over the past decade.

    I think the sensible middle ground is that we'll have cheerleaders but all they're allowed to do is take the knee. And not for that reason you dirty buggers.
