    Well done to all involved..

    I wouldn't expect the board to make any decision until they've exhausted all avenues to save their skins... I'm not expecting the NRL to do them any favors though

    I'm tired already... and you're telling me I shouldn't rest until August 24th...?

    Seriously though, it is as you say great to see members doing something about the state of our great club, in a positive merit-based vein rather than through a factional (Eagleston) method.

    Chris deserves a life membership with the club if he pulls this off.

    "It's not an outlandish statement to say the future of the football club, at least in the medium term, with Brad Arthur."


    It's not an outlandish statement- it's straight up gibberish.

    f**k me dead - do these "professionals" not proofread at all?

    They forgot the word 'lies'... 'lies with Brad Arthur'.

    And those professionals are probably outsourced offshore somewhere on minimum wage (or will be soon enough).

    Yeah - I know what they meant to say.

    But it irks me no end to see this from people who make a living off of written English.

    At the end of the day, it's laziness, and I find it unacceptable.

    Fair enough.

    But news organisations have been cost cutting for years with the advent on online publishing, and I think these days they make their money more from the clicks and traffic, rather than the quality of the written words (available for free).

    So speed is favoured over accuracy I guess, in a fast paced world etc etc.

    I'd say you're right, mate - but it still irritates me.

    I just read a review of the new Subaru Levorg on Cars Guide, and the twat that wrote the article (and, evidently, his dipshit editor) used the incorrect word (he should have used "to", but used "too"). He also wrote "their's" instead of "theirs".

    No doubt - these organisations are full of excuses for their incompetence.

    However, I just can't excuse their idiocy and/or laziness.

    Wondering why a thread relating to future board election process got merged into the salary cap thread.

    The root of one may have been in the other but unless there is a limit on the number of open threads this doesn't make sense.

    Can a mod either split them or perhaps send me a PM to explain why they were merged please?

    The 'of' is probably redundant mate. ;-)

    Probably should have been "from".
