    Fans will bond with anyone that is a decent player. Currently the biggest fan favourites are probably Sivo, Gutho and Moses. No one gives a shit where they come from if they come to parra and play well. You know who copped the most flak in recent times? Our juniors, Mannah, Tepai, Peni and Alvaro. And deservedly so because they were mostly pretty f**ken average

    From the outset (start of the 2019 season) he was talking to journos and saying things like “show me the money” and “every kid wants to be a millionaire”. If that’s his mindset, and he’s going to the highest bidder, I’d say he’s as good as gone. There’s more desperate clubs out there than the eels.

    I know where you're coming from, but he's got every right to test the market. He hasn't said anything disrespectful to the club (as far as I know). If he stay, great. If he goes, we've got a year to find another half. I don't think he ever said anything like 'show me the money'. He did say the millionaire stuff, but in this context:

    Maybe I’ve mixed him up with someone else. But anyways it wasn’t the best of looks for him, but each to their own I suppose. Good luck to him, he’s still a rookie and if he goes he goes.

    Sivo was a NSW cup player who made his name here.Gutherson was a rookies who played 4 games before doing knee. Tecnhically not our juniors but either is Mahoney or Niakuore. When a player is given a chance g12h a club like KE and Manu where then it feels like they are your clubs player.

    MJ,Fergo,Moses to me along with RCG feel like blow ins. I guess cause they are big money signings. Unlike say Gower,Lane or N.Brown at time. Perhaps its just me but I don't too many big name signings in squad. Feels a bit fake.

    The NRL trophy weigh 19 kilos - if they can lift that then we can be as fake as the Kardashians.

    I'd be pretty annoyed if we lost Drown, the talk here of him being money hungry or whatever TBH I don't give a f**k about. What he puts out on the field is what's important, and this here sold me on the kid................

    No, he didn't - he said that every kid dreams of being a millionaire, after the Warriors threw big dollars at him.

    Regardless of what he said, he’s been talking about testing his value since March. Good luck to the kid.

    I f**ken hope you're right. No amount of sensible thinking will help me if we manage to loose Dylbags after only 1and a bit yrs in the top grade. If we are going to to take a risk by overpaying someone, then this is the fella imo

    It constantly amazes me how many people, in society in general, are so quick to accept the most negative view of something...

    He has arragned for Drown's passport to be surrendered and for him to report to his local station every 2 days.
