    I don't care if someone likes my content. Each to their own. You're just not offering anything other than talking shit about the people here. At least give something of substance. Plenty of people have been negative about choices the club or coaches have made in the past but offer alternatives or explain what's wrong and why.

    God Is I can’t imagine anyone has worse centres than us. Then again we are in an age of average centres and it’s not a position that is emphasised in the modern game.

    In saying that I have a fair bit of faith in our forward prospects doing the job so would be happy to see the club proactively create more space (flip Whare/Mansour) to bring in the right back. Gua certainly would have.

    Otherwise we really need to pick off some good prospects that are looking for their shot and hope one sticks.

    Agree in theory, the trouble is if you look at the list for available players for 2020, scratch M Jennings who has reportedly agreed to a 2 year extension, there are no decent centres on it. I’d prefer to go into 2020 with Naden and Crichton, with Whare as back up, than sign someone like Aaron Gray or Benko Lee.

    I’d prefer they wait a bit longer and see if someone like Morris gets shopped to clubs for next season.

    Exactly. Plenty on here don't agree but say this is how it is better or have figures to say why. Some are just trolls

    Yes but only rumours that x player is going to be let go. I'd take Aekin, Lomax, Morris etc but atm none are available.

    So we either go ahead and fill the holes now or wait

    Not sure why you guys worry.

    Boredom mostly. We've got so little to talk about now because nothing is happening.

    Exactly how I see it. The panic to buy anyone available is ridiculous

    I heard a rumour @Coastal is actually Donald Trump... it’s the only way he can be that much of a deadshit...

    No nothing. I've looked everywhere online and it's radio silence. Weird for this time of year but it could be a pre-christmas quiet period.

    Waiting on other teams has made a stalemate really

    Guys like Aaron Gray etc aren't going anywhere but if the rumours about Storm being $400k over are true then you want to keep space just incase.

    Didn't the Storm re-sign a busted Welch?

    I don't see how they could be over the cap if they did.

    It is match payments and rep bonuses that come off the cap the next year that is the issue in these cases

    Jamal Idris, for example, was a January signing from memory... there's still time.

    I totally agree. Especially with Crashtest's thinking. Shock of all shocks with Barratt back at the club attack hopefully will improve.

    I think now is the time (this very minute), when there is little available on the open market) to just work hard and attempt to build a good foundation for 2020.

    Thank goodness in the comming year Panthers will fly as Dessie would say well and truely 'under the radar' History tells me that's when Penrith Panthers do best with little or no expectation 2003 anyone ?
