    The age rule is a joke. Wade was ready when we picked him but it is a rule

    I can’t remember when the age rule was introduced I just think it was introduced for a reason and I fail to see why we should be bending the rules for the Roosters. They are going to get salary cap relief for the Boyd Cordner situation, Suaali will no doubt play NRL before August if he is the real deal if it was us in there situation we would have to suck it up.

    In theory yes in reality no chance.

    Look at the garbage with Burton staying here and he is top 30 and possibly top 17.

    Anyone that is good enough will be playing elsewhere before you get to stack a team

    I think you need some sort of check in place. Or else you go nuts with say a top 20 and just get exemptions after that

    We have a few but they get paid by St Marys so we technically don't pay them

    It’s a pointless conversation I know but where is the reward for developing Laurie, Burton, Blore (Shawn), and others only to see them leave because of a flawed salary cap, Many others in seasons gone by. We invest more than any other club, including the Broncos, in junior development only to get screwed over time and time again.

    The whole Ivan the terrible has been done to death. Seriously, it is surely time to move on for the sake of both clubs. It should be remembered any signing is signed off by a board so any deals done by Ivan were sanctioned by your CEO and Board. Get over it.

    To be fair we get the benefit of having a constant flow of nrl ready players so we shouldn't have "premiership windows" but be constantly competitive if not top 4.

    Surely we don’t even want to contemplate such an outcome.

    For the Panthers he did, not so for your club. Now how is that relevant?

    Penrith Panthers and the Clearys cotinue to live rent free in the heads of the Penrith Faithful.

    Like others have said, surely it's time for W/T and their faithful to build a bridge and move on.

    It is interesting to note that Pascoe did this in 2015......(whilst were are highlighting history). Penrith though didn't recieve a cents compensation either.

    https://westernweekender.com.au/201...ad of Rugby,confirmed the news this afternoon.

    Well I guess we have enjoyed success based in the work initiated by Gould when he returned to the club. He was instrumental in developing junior pathways which have certainly contributed to our successes of consistent finals appearances with the exception of Ivan’s first season back in charge. This season is very important for our future going forward, we need to build on our achievements of last season. I think it is going to be tough equaling or bettering what we achieved last season and I will probably be slandered for being a negative Nellie for saying that. It’s a tough competition, you need things to go your way and have a slice of good fortune to finish top four. Am I optimistic absolutely, but if things don’t fall our way, I will understand it and there may be valid reasons why we don’t deliver in our premiership favouritism which is largely bullshit anyway.

    Before I get blasted for it, I simply make the point the betting odds are meaningless, not saying we can’t win the GF or make the top four just saying whatever odds we are don’t mean anything in the overall scheme of things.

    You will confuse them. Half does not know the meaning of the word hypocritical.

    It is a tough comp. 5% down and the other top 6 teams will take you. Gotta be ruthless and consistent.

    They tend to come in bunches though, like the group that came through at Parra around 1980 and the Raiders of 89 or so.
