    Is he still a lunatic or is he off the drugs now? Has he done anything out of control since the thing in the US?

    Agree. And the rain last night wouldn’t have helped.

    I don't know his mental state.

    But I do know that he showed zero remorse when he was interviewed by Yvonne I think it was. He also basically said he didn't need to see a counselor and hadn't done so despite that being something the NRL (I think) heavily urged him to do.

    His crime also involved complete randos. Manu did the wrong thing, but in the minds of the people doing it, there was a reason.

    The guy comes across as the kind of guy who would be lobbing bodies into the Nerang River for the Rebels if he wasn't a footy player. But I've said my piece on Lodge many times.

    I think he showed some remorse. Not like sobbing or anything but he recognised it was f**ked.

    Thats not to say i like him or want him at parra .... i fear he probably still has lunatic in him

    Does anyone know when our players got up there?
    Can we say we have we done our bit to promote Magic Round?

    These clubs flying the team up on game day and then home straight away can go f**k themselves. It is so typical of NRL Clubs. I hope those clubs go broke.
    I assume we have been up there a few days and are meeting with fans up there being seen around the place, because we are a club that gets it....

    We are the only team that plays after 3 preliminary "lower grade" matches as well. Could be bad.

    It’s not about me, it’s about the perception of these blokes. Lodge is still universally hated, the guys you mention are not for whatever reason. Media bias? Time passed? The feeling that Lodge never faced justice? Not sure, but I don’t think the guys you mentioned have effected goodwill at all.

    It’s not about me or forgiveness. It’s about the fact that people still see a bad bloke, not a good bloke making the most of a second chance. The clubs image will suffer.
