    do you laugh along or get a bit antsy? Funniest thing I saw two seasons ago was ian Schubert at gf day presentation as your club legend

    I love it and we should all own it and i one day hope us roosters fans start a tradition of wearing sombreros to the game.

    Some fans do get antsy but i personally find the constant salary cap whinge hilarious.

    It makes me laugh, because the fans that use it the most are the same ones who’ll also want to spend hours telling me why every player at the roosters is massively overrated

    I’m a fan. It helps divert fans’ and critics’ attention away from how poorly the other clubs (sans Storm) are run and will continue to run.

    I like it. Although it’s past it’s use by date to have any effect on most fans who mightn’t have liked it when it first popped up.

    it’s a marked improvement to the “Transit Lounge” name we were given in the mid to late 80’s. That name truly sucked, because it was true in every sense.

    Becoming boringly cliched due to over use.

    I do get sick of hearing it, to be honest, but realise that it is just jealousy and bitterness on the part of opposition supporters, especially the rabble, and some of the other Sydney-based clubs.

    Who cares, just ignore them, I say. It is their problem, not ours!

    I used to laugh at it but now it pisses me off. It completely takes away the amazing feat of the club going back to back premiership winners and the club deserves more.

    I mean we lose Napa and Fergerson after 2018.
    We Lose Cooper Cronk, Tetevano and Latrell Mitchell after 2019.
    We only sign Angus Critchon and Kyle Flannery in those 2 years.

    Yet still all you hear are lame “Roosters over the salary cap” jokes.
    Think the club and players deserve more respect.

    And that’s on top of the criticism our players cop from rival fans for being shit. Yet we’re still over the cap!

    As a fan of comedy, it sucks. Absolutely played out, nothing original to add to the joke.
    As a fan of Roosters, it's hilarious. It just screams butthurt.

    If you can't take it, then you can't give it.
    I also think its better than being found guilty of cheating

    I love it, especially when Sharks supporters stupidly throw it out there. My reply goes along the lines of them being both salary cap AND drug cheats!
