    So you would have no problem if, for example, the broncos went to the knights and said “hey, here’s a million bucks, release ponga so we can sign him now”? You don’t see how that is an advantage over other clubs?

    the game will end up like EPL with only a handful of clubs ever challenging

    Seems a bit unfair that the Titans lose their top player in Jai Arrow only to get money in return. Money doesn't mean shit when they can't attract players to the team because they only have older veterans and castaways. Titans are a few releases away from being Newcastle Knights pre 2018 bad.

    Imagine the travesty if the NRL was like the EPL, one of the biggest sporting comps in the world.
    I don’t think clubs having an advantage is a bad thing. The current situation holds the sport back in my opinion and promotes mediocre teams ran by self serving halfwits.

    They were going well before they decided to sign cancerous Hayne.

    That circus ruined them.

    They can opt to make him see out his contract, it doesn’t seem like a very sensible move to me but they’re free to do so or they can get some cash and feee up some cash space to build a team that wants to be there.
    you can’t force players to stay at clubs once their contracts over.

    Yeah but it’s aggravating when the clubs do this then hold up expansion by claiming they are struggling financially.

    That is a Queensland training jersey, not their playing strip.

    Still looks better than NSWs over cluttered mess of a jersey
