    The storm don’t have a sponsor yet for next year.

    Maybe the f**king afl can sponsor the purple merkins.

    Get on a plane jac, stuff bellyache and his whinging schoolboy whining. He’s angry all the time. f**k him. You don’t need that.

    I’d rather play for Madge on any day of the week, because he’s got dignity and poise.

    Even if we can’t sign anyone, I think we will hit the finals next year on general squad improvement grounds.

    We are not exactly in reverse. Many squads are far more dodgy than our blokes with utter gimps as coaches.

    Saints will be lucky to win 7matches all year under Mary. If jdb goes to gaol, change that to 4

    Just because the Warriors are stupid enough to pay that for a kid who hasn't played grade yet doesn't mean our offer to Latrell was / is low or should be increased.

    If I had to pick between JAC and Latrell then it's no contest, come back home fox.

    Yeah it happens as no human decision making is flawless.

    I’ve only read the allegations about the still innocent jdb. He had a co-defendant who was apparently there and it will be interesting to see if they both claim consensual activities ( if any occurred) and their stories actually match up under fierce and relentless cross examination by our skilled crown prosecutors.

    Theres allegations of bruising and force used, sometimes that can happen consensually.

    After the event, they go out to a nightclub together and then the victim makes the claims to a friend and then off to hospital.

    I don’t know how long the three were together after the event or what the alleged victims thought processes were.

    Police to their credit are on scene pretty quickly after the allegation gathering evidence.

    If they are found guilty, the court will have to impose a solid lagging for both men. Sex offenders-very nasty and very very unpleasant.

    Im not sure if this guy is Alien or King Bunniesman, I used to always get them mixed up. Which is the one who left the Tigers in a huff and went to Souffs?

    What do the rest of you say?

    Johnson would add depth to our backline but is nothing much better than what we already have, he'd just be another middle of the road type signing that we are known for and not the sort of player that will make others want to come here.
    As I said, if Latrell and his team are looking at every possible way to get him to Souths even to the point he is willing to take a pay cut then we cant be offering him $1m. If you pay that sort of money you expect Cronk level commitment where he fully buys into the team and does whatever possible to get us a premiership.

    Right, so you're permitted to get your last dig in but I'm not.
    If you don't want to face reality then that's your choice to remain ignorant I guess.

    As I'm not permitted to respond & you don't want to hear anything apart from your virtue signalling snowflake agenda, I'll bid you good day Cupcake because you have nothing of value that I want to hear.
    Try to have a nice life none-the-less.

    I gave up on lm ages ago. Souths need elite forwards more than backs I’d say. Sam is a massive loss. Pound for pound globally, the best forward in the game for the 5 years. Almost priceless.

    The story discussed a stance softening, but I would be surprised as the roosters fans won’t wear lm to Souths. It would be considered weak without some kind of over the top compelling justification. I read somewhere we have been talking to the roosters direct about lm since the drama unfolded.

    We were hoping for a prompt commitment from lm but he backed away thus undermining his credibility. That played right into the roosters hands, not that team lm understood that.

    I think his public antics embarrassed the roosters a bit. They won’t be losing any face. They’ve told him to forget training next year until it’s all settled.

    Mitchell has had three different managers in a year? [Deacon, Rushton & now Rose apparently] Would like to hear the story behind that.

    Roosters offered Mitchell $800K a year & he knocked it back? That's a decent offer to stay with the team he's won two Grand Finals. A young bloke in Mitchells position would benefit from a stable environment I'd imagine.
    At 22yo he would have been way better off staying with Easts for another couple of years. Money isn't everything.

    Once one takes into account taxes & his managers cut there's not a huge difference between $800K & $1 million [I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong]. Stability staying with what he knows rather than go through all of this drama makes me wonder if he regrets ever listening to whatever goose got into his ear to chase more money. [Probably The Mouth Mundine]

    Mitchell has been poorly advised as far as I'm concerned.
    To be perfectly honest I will not have any empathy for the bloke if he ends up having to choose between taking less or going O/S to chase $$$.
    Let's hope that he at least is getting decent investment advise.

    Unless he finds a mentor who can set his head straight I fully expect LM to have some sort of 'mental health/personal' issue that takes him away from the game in the next two years.

    Not sure why the quote doesn't show - maybe because I put him on ignore? IDK - but for the record that was directed at WA Tiger.

    That is all.

    I concur.

    $800k is more than the average wage earner will get in about 10 years. People on the dole or aged pension might get 1% of this to buy everything with.

    It just becomes Monopoly money.

    He’s lost a lot of the league public in the process and wherever he ends up, he is now expected to be a Dally M every single game and he’s set himself to fail.

    It’s a sad and premature end to what could have been a great career full of giving and contributing to the game. He will work it out that he is not bigger than the game or more important as a person than a regular player on his $100k or so.

    Madge will be sniffing about looking for giant forwards we can trade for elite backs next year.

    The incredible James Roberts. There’s a player for you.

    But from our signings we seem to be future focused right now. 2022 should be vintage.

    If he kills it, first game (where ever he plays) all the off season crap will be forgotten

    Some of it, but not all of it.

    In those circumstances, there’s at least 4 or 5 other clubs, their fans and members who will be depressed and perhaps resentful that he isn’t playing for them.

    This is the danger of “whoring” yourself around the nrl.

    Now the bunnies fans are tarting themselves up for the lm treatment.

    They don’t want to miss out on the chance of being dissapointed either.

    I'm so sick of hearing about LM. I hope that Madge is in England looking for ESL prospects because we are getting nowhere with all these primadonna NRL players.

    We really need to take a leaf from Canberras book. Give me 3 ESL players who are hungry for NRL success over an abundantly talented, yet uncommitted marquee player any day of the week
