    Here we go again Zac clay was offered money from penrith and chose to go anyway it has nothing to do with budget its to do with not signing up 13year olds that havent proven themselves parra like to take the punt and throw money at a maybe and it has backfired on them many times i think the stand that penrith take by not signing players on potential will pay off and i can see it happening this year with a shoestring budget teams like roosters ,newcastle,sharks and parra have been spending big money on junior reps with very little return and the bulldogs have spent big on there local boys and with an open cheque book budget are the only ones succeeding but they have signed proven players..

    Nothing to do with "Freedom Of Speech"?

    Do you know how frustrating it is when you read a thread that is more than 10-15-20 pages long (hence this thread) and all you are getting is a flame competition?

    It wastes time endlessly going through the rubbish that gets spat out at times and I think no one has time to waste on lame arguments between to individuals that have nothing to do with football.

    Hissy rant over.

    Its a circle...Cronulla, Manly and Canterbury poach the Eels and the Panthers, Parra look into Panther territory, and it starts all over again....
    Cronulla, Manly and Canterbury think it is easier to pick from the shelf, rather than grow their own.
    The competition needs a Player Draft like the AFL...

    Finally, there is another rugby league supporter out there with common sense.

    The salary cap only does half the job. The NRL needs a draft to truly even out playing competition. Well said.

    yes those were the days when wicky and co played, if you won a game it was like winning a grand final. and the players played for the love of the game.

    Funnily enough wins in the day of Terry Wickey, Dollar Geary, Stevo, Ashurst, Glen West and Co were in fact great days. They did in fact largely play for the love of the game because they played for win bonuses and losses largely went unpaid (other than the imports such as Stevo and Bill). You may mock but they were special days because there were no expectations, no fan days or forums and the old ground did have a certain graveyard atmosphere about it.

    My apologies. I was at the Manly game as well.

    You may also have been at the game against St George at home when we were down 18-0 with a little over 10 minutes to go. Bill Ashurst magic turned the game and we put on five tries in the last 10 or so to win 25-18. Pure magic. 1975 as I recall. I can still recall an Ashurst chip over the top and regather, pass on the inside to someone (maybe Zac Ole our five eighth at the time) leading to a try under the posts which set up our comeback.
