    No I think it’s fine that one team can have $1M in legal TPAs while most others struggle to amass even a quarter of that. It’s just the kind of competition I want to follow.

    There shouldn’t be a salary cap.

    Yeah, see, Norman produced the most repeat sets from kicks into the in-goal than any other player in the NRL this year. So, IF 'the other kickers' improve, we have no problem. But what IF they don't? And by the way, who are 'the other kickers'? Moses and who else?

    Doesn't matter. Whilst ever you are getting repeat sets, the opposition hasn't got the ball.

    Good teams score off the back of repeat sets. In the same circumstances we usually turn it over or pass it over the sideline. Gary could have even caught a few of those, if he had hung onto it.

    Whoever wears 6. And Moses earnt a lot of repeat sets as well, despite getting less early ball near the opposition line. Moses was our primary long kicker, Norman our primary short kicker by virtue of playing a more central role. If Moses gets more ball he will earn more repeat sets.

    Id like to see stats on who kicked the ball dead the most.

    Dylan Brown and Mahoney both have short kicking games.
    Id argue if its shared then attack would be less predicatable.

    None of our players could kick it that far.

    Hey @Gazzamatta, what do you think about Avenger prematurely ejaculating over Flanagan?

    I could easily catch it if I wasn't so busy.

    I'd say he wouldn't be as concerned as Flanagan.

    Do you think Brown (no first grade experience) and Mahony (hardly any first grade experience) will be able to match Norman's strike rate in the in-goal? Say what you like about Norman (I think he was at times brilliant, but went missing too often and was too erratic) but his short-kicking game was a real asset and something that we will miss.

    Well, probably the other half, presumably.

    That's sort of how football works.

    Normans form in 2016 was great. In 2017 I thought Moses was the guy who starred and Normans form was just ok. In 2018 Normans form was ordinary. Id rather our half set up a try prior to forcing a line drop out .

    I too would love to see a Broncos vs Rooster grand final every year ... maybe the storm might pop in once every 4 years
