    I'd like Saints to offer the Storm Dufty and Norman for JAC. About 1m dollars in cap for a 750k fullback.

    In comparison, I’d say Millward is doing a very good job..

    You would, you're cut from the same cloth and both true scarlet Steeler fans.

    He’s a Steeler? Good man..

    But I was thinking more that both of us in our right minds would not consider swapping two spine players for one winger on $750k..

    The Storm have said they want a like for like player, so would have to be a winger.

    The only way I could see this working is if they want for Saab plus some cash.

    Possm I love your daily enthusiasm on the forum but I see 3 problems here.
    1: Norman is on 850 and I’ll say Dufty is on 300. That’s 1.15 million in exchange for JAC who WANTS 750 but is not worth that. I’d say 600 is more than fair. Big difference there. Bad move for us.
    2: We are offloading 2 players for 1. Bad move for us.
    3: Why would Bellamy want to release an Australian winger in exchange for a very ordinary 5/8 and an average FB?? Makes zero sense for them and $$$ wise no good for us

    Dear Storms, please give us a test/origin winger in return for Dufty and Norman. We think you'll like them way more than Papenhuyzen and Munster. Thanks.

    All contracts terminated and player managers work a contract at each club. So we have 1.2m off our books and bring on 750k. Great deal and we have a potential fullback who we know can bring the ball back strongly, who is very fast and who can catch a high ball.

    Mate Saab wouldn't want to go to Melbourne...he'd be too far away from Mummy and Daddy if he was living there...he needs a bedtime story,a kiss on the forehead and for them to tuck him in every night...

    We don’t need JAC especially at that money.
    I would prefer we look to our local talent for players 1-5.
    What we need is a couple of big, aggressive buggers in the middle that will bend the line back, smash hard in defence and smack anyone who gives anyone in the Red V sh!t.

    Yeah mate I tend to agree.

    Someone would have to convince him that being a winger in the Storm system would earn more $$$ in the short term with the accolades that come his way and that more $$$ = more time with Mummy and Daddy.

    Mate the word out of the dragons was that when we were trying to convince him to stay at the club he was constantly talking about the daily commute to Wollongong.The club tried to talk him into moving to the gong and he said he didn't want to move away from his Mum and Dad :rolleyes: kids these days, seriously some of them need to take a spoonful of cement and harden up.

    I’d swap Dufty, I like Dufty but I think only Bellamy could get him at his best. It would be a mutually beneficial swap but I can’t see it happening.
