    makes no sense

    Melbourne were cheating the cap and were not allowed to let players take a cut to fix things up and it took them less than a year to right the ship

    so why will it take us two years when we are not massively over the cap like Melbourne were :crazy:

    He also said that Arthur only has 21 players to choose from every week from the top 25, so basically we do not have a top 25 this year, only 21......

    He praised Arthur and what he has achieved with all the constraints he has had to deal with.

    I want to have rational discussions about rugby league. There's only a handful of you that seem to be interested in anything other than endless venting.

    Don't you merkins have Facebook where you can carry on like teenagers?

    Yes, that is what you want, a conversation. You really just want to argue with people all night and try and feel superior.

    Maybe we could take some players off other clubs in similar deals in the meantime just to make up the numbers. Surely other clubs have some cap issues we could use in our favour.

    I think the transfer date has passed for players wanting to move to other clubs for this year.

    I wonder if this has come out after we had lost 3 straight with a good chance of a 4th for a reason. This has now lowered the fans expectations for the rest of this year and next and taken all pressure off the players and coaching staff. We have pretty much just been told not to expect to be playing near the end of September until at least 2016.
    And i bought my flights for the WCC a month ago.

    Seward is spot on.

    The Head Coach back then and recruitment officer signed the likes of Hicks, Shack, Webb and co and we let go Inu, Mateo, Lowrie, Kingston, etc

    Under Pete Nolan, we have not back ended any deal and that is fact.

    We are in this mess and paying other blokes at other clubs because mid way through last year, the club led by its head coach at the time and management took the strong stance of releasing players with a year left on their contracts and hence why we have to pay for some part of their wage and that $750,000 also includes the money we are paying the Sharks for De Gois.

    But it's funny how one journo says we have no money but another journo says we have money to chase DCE.

    I can say that the $4 million for 4 years won't get us DCE.

    Bingo.

    Absolutely spot on.

    Expect more of the same this week after that loss on Friday night against the Bunnies.

    Than the dopes in our board react by axing coaches because dopes in the media and various websites threaten a stampede of the clubs office if they don't get what they want...

    I'm sure we'll hear it if the next 6 weeks gets a bit nastier

    Then it's back to square 1

    How can there be issues next year Stagger?

    All the blokes mentioned are off contract end of this year.

    Plus we are loosing Smith, Fui, Sio, Paulo, Tonga, Kelly, Jones, Foran, Lasalo.

    So where has that money gone?

    We resigned Mannah, Vai, Manu and Wicks for next year.

    So who is exactly managing our salary cap at the moment.
