    Just stating facts no dummy spit here.
    1. Souths treated differently
    2. Souths are scabs.
    Prove the statement wrong.

    No need to prove such a stupid comment as being wrong.

    Somewhat off topic, but Souths pursuit of Latrell is being put on hold because they're desperate to get Jai Arrow released a year early for 2020.

    I read this morning that Souths are looking at a transfer fee and player swap as part of the deal.

    But my question is: shouldn't any "monetary transfer fee" count under the salary cap?

    Souths, despite their laughable "battlers" tag, would be arguably the wealthiest club in Sydney; so if transfer fees don't count under the cap then what is to stop richer clubs offering "the battlers" large sums of money to release their best players early?

    It sounds like just another way for the cap to be circumvented.

    Who would you want from Souths though?

    Excluding cam Murray, It’s like having a big bucket of poo to stick your hand in, and whatever you pick out, is still poo.

    Yeah even Titans aren't silly enough to trade Arrow for some rejects from Souffs bench

    That’s says a lot about your lack of football knowledge or how bad the 13 teams below us last year were

    take your pick

    Yeah, someone with supreme football knowledge would let Arrow go for *checks notes* Alex Johnston?

    Yeah im not a big fan of the Sydney rorters, but 1 & 2 are factually plausable to me, A.1909 GF should never be counted as there was no opposition, and B. GI & Sammy medically retired what utter rorting, i didn't see peter wallace or sam mckendry get any kickbacks off of their medical retirements, souffs are treated differently, might be coz of Packer Jr? or does Rusty pull ears in HQ

    Perhaps the panthers should have applied for it?

    Does that mean the knights, Wests & Broncos also got favoured treatment?

    Or perhaps they did... It was approved and Peter Wallace took up a coaching role with the Panthers immediately while his remaining salary was removed from the cap which is what actually happened...
