If all reports are true about players re-signing then it’s not looking good for the Dolphins or the rest of the NRL I fear. It wasn’t too hard to predict; they’ll only get their players from clubs that are already struggling in effect adding another poor side to an already woefully lopsided competition.

V’landys in all his bluster hasn’t given enough lead time for this new club or more importantly addressed the reasons why the competition is so imbalanced as it is before adding another side.

They were banking on ripping the heart out of Storm and a couple of other clubs, won’t be as easy as that! They are going to pay massive overs to try and sign a couple of marquees so that’s going to hurt their depth. I guess we’ll now see if they can bring up some intrust cup talent, after all wasnt that supposed to be a key reason they were brought in?

Therein lies the problem of rushing them in and giving them so little time to plan their entry.

They also needed to fix the issues that are obvious to everyone which has created a lopsided competition and people bemoaning the lack of quality (whilst there are some concerns about the quality most of the problems have come from the current player market system and the new rules which have exacerbated the first problem)

You needed to fix those problems before you put another side in, otherwise you are making the problem greater

They should name the fifth Qld team the Queensland Kings
Would never happen.

I remember the old Auckland soccer team Football Kingz in the old NSL prior to the A-League's formation and they had to rework the name as their original choice Auckland Kings landed them a lawsuit from the Sydney Kings basketball team who had (and probably still does) have the rights to the name.
