Disagree In the fact that recruitment is not a one year fix
we would be as active in the market as everyone else
It aint easy for lower place clubs to attract anybody without paying overs which we’ve done in the past which kills you down the track
the players you talk about are demanding overs by their managers and for Brisbane to keep Staggs they to would have to pay overs
it’s time to get value for money in depth first then have the money to target the right big name or 2
Give the juniors time to develop under right tutoring
I’m hoping that it is starting to happen now because it certainly wasn’t in the past
Everyone is sick of being patient but unfortunately we’re in the same boat as probably about 10 other clubs at the moment across the board as they to have the same disease
The five clubs above us on the table are the super well run clubs
Right now we are leading the pack for the rest
Buying big names for the sake of it and having not much around them does little to improve you
look at those clubs behind us and some of their recruiting of so-called big names in recent years
Where did you get this juicy bit of info? That is awesome, the rebuild is beginning. Im going to treat this like game one of the season but with a little headstart with those 4 wins.
Thanks mate they obviously just updated it. Swap Burns and Ellis for Ford and Faamausuli and we are looking better imo. Still an exciting side though.
OT, I remember you arguing back in 2018 I think it was that because Dragons had a red hot start and were May premiers, anything less than a top 4 finish was a failure. Yet now you are saying calm down, don’t put unrealistic expectations on the team.Funny how early on the expectations were spoon or at best bottom 4.
String a few wins together and oops all of a sudden people talking about top 8, top 6 even top 4 FFS.
So now if we don't achieve that all of a sudden it's doom and gloom but at the start of the season if someone had said we could win 4 in a row including a comprehensive win over a contender for the premiership people would have declared it insanity.
FFS people need to stop putting unrealistic expectations on the team & coach who has a pretty pedestrian roster and just let the coaching staff do their job and get us out of the quagmire we have been in for so long.
It isn't going to happen in a sudden burst of some realisation that it was all Mc Fookknuckle's fault as a coach which is only part of it as the clusterf**k of a roster which Hook has to deal with has been in the making for a very long period of time.
The notion that Bellamy, Robinson or Bennett could get our existing lot to top 4 or top 6 for that matter within this 1st season is just farcical because the roster simply is not good enough or skilful enough and fixing that is what will take time.
Re the game against the Dogs our key players BH, CN, PV, AM, TS, MD all need to play out of their skins and everyone else needs to aim up and play as mistake free as possible.
If we do that we will win and win well but if they don't we will compete with the Dogs for the entire game but at at their low level of competency and then the result could go either way
