    Yeah the teams are very likely waiting until nov 1 so they can speak to the guys off contract at the end of 2020.

    More likely that they can release signing details about players that they have already been speaking to ;) . Not that it's a great secret :)

    So, I just read through 3 pages to catch up on rumored signings.

    That was a mistake.

    Not that it really matters, but that long, long, long digression about how Nathan Cleary will go in 2020 would have been better suited for, I don’t know, the 2020 Discussion thread?

    Complaining about what's being discussed in the thread isn't on topic either... and adds a hell of alot less to the thread than natural discussion.

    No shit, but where else am I going to do it? I would prefer a board where discussions generally follow the thread topic so that it is easier to read. So I voice my complaints here hoping that a moderator will pay attention. Pretty straightforward, no?

    I keep hoping we can start a blatant lies and you know it is bulls..t thread. For instance; I was at Easts last Monday when one of old blokes who have frequented the club since 1960 noticed my Penrith tee shirt. He congratulated me on our relatively successful season, every club but the Roosters were losers just some were bigger losers than others. He said he had been speaking to Robbo and that a couple of high profile Penrith colts will be joining Easts next year. He wouldn’t say who they were.

    It may help actually, may knock a few rungs off the ladder they have found themselves at the top of.

    I understand what you are saying in a way, but my comparison was to point out that he is in nowhere near the same league as some great players that have played for the club, but some seem to think he is the messiah that the club has been searching for. He was an exceptional lower grade player and everyone I'm sure, including me, thought that he was going to be the half that has been missing since 2003. He has had 3 years in 1st grade, and I'm sorry to say but his contribution to the team hasn't got any better, its gotten worse. Anyone who believes the Cleary's haven't set this all up to benefit themselves are doing nothing but living in hope. I'm a Panthers supporter and even I'm disappointed in how all this came about. Ivan and Nathan didn't talk at all about the circumstances and how they can get their family dream of father coach and son player, that they didn't both discuss it continuously during 2019? Penrith paid overs for Nathan and had to pay Ivan, Bellamy money to get him to break a contract. Hopefully 2020 doesn't produce any " I don't know" answers in press conferences, because there is no hope in hell that any blame will be placed on Nathan's shoulders. Worst case of nepotism that I can imagine.

    I have the same doubts as you. I hope that a settled spine will help all
