    glad that leak got plugged :roll:

    announcing every single player we are chasing just makes us look like idiots if we don't get them

    ffs tell us when we sign someone until then just shut up

    Todd Greenberg always gets his man. His attitude to future signings in the media ? ---> :-#

    We seem to fail to sign our targets. Our approach to the media ? ---> [​IMG]

    You'd have thunk the penny would have dropped by now....

    Not exactly announcing an intention to sign him.
    And the Bird and Carney rumours have been shot down by Edwards.
    Some of you blokes need to calm down a bit.
    You complain that we're not in the market for certain players....then when you hear that we are you complain that you're hearing about it (even when it's not even true).

    Don't see what people are getting all worked up about...its nothing article other than a player manager doinghis job developing a market for one of this high profile players. The quote from Stuart saids nothing

    Bullshit the Doggies would've signed Mortimer and Foran if that was the case.

    Greenberg is one of the best but he isn't perfect either. If he was the league world would've been stunned about T-Rex signing or the pic of Thurston leaving their complex one night wouldn't have surfaced.

    Whether or not we get him, Matt Scott is the best prop forward in the world!!

    Good to know we're chasing him (would've been nicer to hear that we had signed him, but whatever!)

    Seeing as we are 'cashed up' I think we should make also make a play for Thurston, C Smith, and Tamou. We should also grab David Beckham while we are at it. I am sure he will come in handy for something...

    No doubt you're right.

    We don't need the best prop in the world, we have some young blokes who have never even played first grade before.....

    So if we had the money would Scott be your first choice of players we should buy?
