    ROFL! Very good, very good!

    LOL! Good one!

    Now that the era when there used to be a plethora of home-grown Aussie tv dramas (e.g. Blue Heelers, Water Rats, All Saints, Sons & Daughters, A Country Practice etc.) has ceased due to production costs, "the HOME of rugby league" has resorted to broadcasting the Broncos getting thrashed to keep the Thursday night/Friday night entertainment industry going in this country.

    Since the NRL re-commenced after COVID-19 postponed the comp for a couple of months, just look at these brilliant results the Broncos have dished up for the Ch9 audience (remember, these are matches Ch9 chose to select after the NRL draw was modified):

    6-34 vs Parramatta (home)
    0-59 vs Sydney Roosters (home)
    18-20 vs Manly (away)
    6-27 vs Newcastle (away)
    0-48 vs Wests Tigers (away)
    8-46 vs Melbourne (home)

    They've conceded an average of 39 points/game in these matches!

    Btw, I didn't realise the Broncos are also on Ch9 next Friday night against Cronulla.

    The promo for next week's match

    "Coming up on Friday Night Football.......

    will Uncle Wayne rescue Princess Boyd from another Shark attack?
    will Anthony Cyborg be auditioning for a role in the next Star Wars movie after tonight's match?

    All this and more coming up next on Nine!"

    Club management may not be in such a generous mood if crowd attendances, revenue and sponsors start dropping off.

    You bring up a very good point.

    I didn't believe it at the time in 2010 when the scandal erupted and a decade later, I still cannot believe any of this crap that occasionally appears on internet forums, regarding how Bellamy and the players (at least the highest paid ones on the roster who were getting benefits) at the Melbourne Storm had absolutely no idea of any salary cap rorting. The same "oh, poor me" hard luck crap that the Bulldogs tried back in 2002 when they got caught.

    Furthermore, Bellamy and these one-eyed fans still have the audacity to say that their 2007/09 premierships are legitimate!

    I was not convinced Melbourne were under the cap after being caught cheating. Most NRL teams would struggle to afford one of the big 3, and Melbourne had all 3 of them.

    Remember the line 'the Cows can't win a premiership because Thurston takes all the money'. Then how did Melbourne afford Smith, Cronk and Slater etc?

    Couldnt agree with this more.

    The Premierships taken away from the Storm are always mentioned by Murdoch media as if genuine.

    As a general rule I view Murdoch as a cancer on society and a genuine threat to the health of democracy, anything that man touches is nothing more than a polished turd re-packaged and marketed to sell to a brain dead public..

    One can sense that he is generally arrogant and overestimates his own ability, but he must have something going for him if he was able to persuade the Broncos to hire him over the other contenders - is he just a sleazy con artist who can schmooze his way through an interview? Good at Powerpoint presentations?

    Funny watching the guy lose his self-belief and gradually imploding at the press conferences each week though.

    Has he started using any of Mary’s well proven excuses to justify his position?

    It’s definitely his messed up voice. No surprise none of the players listen to or take him seriously

    Seems like maybe he's too technical and theoretical but has no idea how to motivate players or speak to them. Almost the complete opposite of Bennet or Stuart who I don't think are tactically great coaches but are very good at motivating players. I'm just making assumptions of course

    I don’t know Seibold as a coach, but I do think he took on a poisoned chalice up there with the Bird/Milford/Boyd contracts.

    In saying that, I don’t think the recruitment in his time has been great either.

    It's funny because we don't seem to have any plans in attack and our defence plans have fallen away completely since last year.

    Literally all we do is make 5 hitups and bomb - most of the time out of position for a decent chase.

    He went all or nothing on his young talent then loses the best one.

    Their defence atm is the biggest problem, they aren’t defending at anywhere near nrl level. They need to drop Milford and Boyd, it just has to happen as a messsage to team. Imagine loosing Fifita while you are paying Milford a million, drop the merkin and wait for him to want out, another desperate club would take him on.

    It's not his fault. Bennet left him with a B grade roster.

    His voice is the sole reason he got Locky's crucial vote.

    Ambition too big for ability. Rugby League is a simple game and he's complicating it. Also, an overrated, junk roster.

    Or maybe he just hates the Broncos like every other normal person.

    You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, especially if you‘re not that good a tailor.

    He has too much estrogen in his body.

    The new and old boys alike dont respect his manhood.
