    Well the Morris brother should go, and to be honest what have they ever done at the Bulldogs? They are getting on a bit and will have to start thinking what sort of English breakfast they are going to have over the next couple of years.

    Back ended contracts are an excuse to rort the cap, you assemble a great team for under market value in the hope of winning a premiership in the short term, while going broke in the long term.

    I fell in love with him when he bit billy slaters ear. From that moment I wished he was a dragon.

    Isn’t this a pretty story that is unfolding at the Dogs.

    Sure is mate, the supporters and some trainers are saying they are screwed for the next 2 years if not 3 yrs.

    Dessie spent big to try to win a comp, but geeze, the head honchos need to ban all back ended contracts, the club board obviously knew as did the NRL.

    It's all ran like a pub raffle.

    I thought there was a minimum payment now of around $100,000 a year to any player... so how they will fill 12 positions with $750, 000..... I guess they will back end a few more or go to the NRL crying begging forgiveness.

    That should end dessies coaching career. Did it at Manly too.

    Personally I think itsi crazy to have ever hated Graham. He's always been a fierce leader and passionate player, exactly what I love to watch in a footy player regardless of their team.

    And even better, once the siren sounded he was all class. Well spoken too. Now that he's Dragon its just a bonus

    True brutalitops, I never really hated him, but I was always sooo mad that the grubs were a bogey team for us ...and that Graham was in the same team as that dtop kick Kasiano... who I genuinely do dislike. I tarred Graham with the same brush unfairly.

    From a newspaper article in today’s SMH.......

    Supposedly, every player in the Dragons' starting 13 – with the exception of James Graham – has scored at least one try after just six rounds............


    Come on James, your dragging the chain, old mate.

    Definitely a fierce and passionate player.

    Went a bit feral with bitty, bitty it's ok, it was only Slaters ear, finger pointing and the charge down against South's.

    Not a peep from him since and the Dogs were on drugs for letting him go.

    Swapping Graham for Woods?
    Definition of insanity?

    Almost as bad as the Wobegongs swapping Maloney for
    Moylan, seriously we thought out club was run badly.

    Maloney for Moylan is the worst deal I have ever seen. Maloney may be a grub but he is a dual premiership player and a winner. Moylan is just a pretty boy

    So much this.

    How could anyone have disliked him after that? I was in a pub in Melbourne watching it and I cheered so hard I almost got lynched.

    No, Moylan is simply a myth.

    In addition to his clear leadership skills, it's what Graham does post his playing career that interests me.

    Hopefully, the club can keep him in some capacity for a very long time.

    He's been worth every cent and more.
