    No adversity and no need for subsidies, leg ups or assistance. We aren’t that type of club. We create our own success. That’s why we are the only constant since 1908.

    Exactly so it is conjecture.

    Meanwhile we do have a verifiable penalties received stat. What are your thoughts on that?

    To be fair, teams like Parra do help to even things up by signing 30 year old wingers to 3 year deals at $500K a year.

    These simpletons don't understand that we haven't claimed adversity, we didn't even start the thread.

    You presented the penalties received stat and they have no idea how to dismiss it.

    Such a baseless statement. It’s just one fan responding to another.

    It’s difficult proving a point with facts when you are up against simple minded opinions. It’s like the myth about easts deliberately giving away penalties on our own line. As someone said here earlier it was disproven and most penalties we give away are actually in our oppositions half usually late in the count. But hey let’s not let facts destroy a perfectly good myth. I couldn’t care less about the penalty anomaly, as a chooks fan it’s just how it is. I just like throwing the facts out there when some genius starts a thread like this.

    Love how @God-King Dean just flicks a match onto the kindling, steps back, and just watches the thread go up in flames.

    Respect.

    I think it’s often the type of penalties that irks opposition fans. Some teams give away the bulk of their penalties early in the tackle count defending their line. They receive questionable penalties late in the tackle count when pinned down deep in their own half.

    I reckon a team would be happy with a 4-8 penalty count against them every week if the penalties were awarded like mentioned above.

    Erm DKR
    Penalties given to us
    Not penalties conceded or differentials

    If we were talking about those your argument (which was possibly, maybe true in one season) might hold some water

    As it is the conversation is going like this

    Roosters fan "I earn $500 less than a Broncos fan"
    You "that's because you spend too much money"

    The 15 other clubs should really pitch in (pun intended) and buy Uncle Nick some putting lessons. Poor bastard can't take a trick on the greens.

    You’ve made about 10 posts and not a single one contains any facts or evidence just opinions and repeating myths and urban legends. If you say it often enough they might become true. Keep going mate don’t let reality stop you.

    Not sure how your response is relevant to my post?

    Regarding repeated penalties on our line what is your source of proof? We gave away 9 penalties vs knights. 2 were on our 10m line. One was a questionable strip vs keary in opening 2 minutes. The second was jwh holding ponga down. There was a 3rd 20 metres out where Ikavalu tackles the player in the air from a line drop out. I’m sure you have many examples you will share that prove we deliberately give away penalties on our line.

    Nice try @God-King Dean but nothing has winded up Roosters fans as much as Pearce having the gall to enjoy his win last week.

    Too bad ponga couldn't put a few more penalties over. The "no team who has conceded 50 points has never won the premiership" thread would be mint
