    Mate I've got enough depressing stuff with actual depression. What some teenager said in the paper or a score in a game I'm not playing? Meaningless in the long run.

    What's more, you can choose to look at the positives (the player we lost is overpaid or has a back injury) or you can choose the negatives (Utoikamanu is the next Payne Haas!!!)

    Here we go again! Drown should have been signed before 1 Nov but we lowballed him and he thinks he's worth more. Understandable since Warriors made huge play for him. If the 4 clubs making offers are shit clubs he might stay for slightly less but if Roosters/Broncos come calling he's gone. Regardless, if he stays, we'll be paying much more than we want to.

    Disagree strongly there. A shit half will make a quality team worse as much as a quality half will improve a shit team. Look at Brisbane, quality team, shit halves, result 58-0 thrashing.

    To you it’s meaningless. We all support this soul destroying club in different ways.

    If Dylan Brown goes I’m fairly confident Jaemon Salmon will be our 6. Before brown came back from his injury salmon was starting to play well at 6.

    Sezer plays in a pretty good team.

    Yeah we would've gotten him cheaper if we made our offer six months ago while he was in bed with a back injury ffs!

    Tbh, who among us can honestly say they wouldn't do the same, if we were in his position?

    The key here is trust, and respect- if we tell Dylan, "We value you as a player, but we are worried about your back injuries; this is our offer," and Dylan thinks he can get more, then we either come up with a contract with some clauses in it to safeguard us, or we cut the ties.

    I have faith in our management team.

    I am disappointed we lost Utoikamanu - but I'm glad we didn't pay the ridiculous amount the Tigers ended up paying to secure his services.

    Utoikamanu will probably make it, but at this stage at least, he's an unknown variable; I would rather we focus on known quantities.

    He only went for $20k a year more than what we offered.

    It was still decent coin for a bloke who struggled in NSW Cup, imo.
