    Don’t be so sure. Cronk will miss the boys that made him great.

    I remember Cronk playing for Australia that year where half the team was missing because of injuries and he wasn't that good.

    I really hope Pearce stays and the Rooters don't lose anybody.

    Just so i can laugh my arse off when they still don't win the comp after two years and realise they have wasted 2 million on him.

    Roosters have been buying comps since they won it in 1975, won two since, how did that work out for them? Cronk wont do shit.

    You have ro win a comp to say it is bought. Roosters are world class losers. All the money, no fans, minimal titles..

    Politis should stick to buying car dealerships. He’s marginally more successful at that than he is buying premierships.

    Funny you mention that

    Melbourne were a million bucks over and got pumped 40 zip when it mattered, they didn't win in 07 or 09 either

    Not true, we have never been known to be big spenders, yet we have 3 premierships over the same period and far more grand final appearances. Now go buy a comp and doodle do.

    Ben Hunt is homesick? Or did he always dream of being coached by Mary?

    Paying overs to retain players that you’ve developed is a different kettle of fish compared to buying established stars from other clubs, in my opinion. I wouldn’t begrudge Manly doing that for the Stewart’s and Beaver. They probably did. Either way, Melb was caught and did the time. Couldn’t imagine Old Boy Shuey going through the books at Easts now, could you?

    And ‘08 had the worst 9 to ever play in a GF in Russell Aitken. F**k, Matt Geyer would have been a better selection there. Might have at least put a few points on you blokes.

    All I see is that for H/A games, you’re behind us. For the finals you’re behind Parra.

    UNLESS, you’re being sneaky & just claiming home games??
