    The NRL Conspiracy

    I can’t for one moment believe the games are fixed / rigged by the NRL. It’s more a match official competency issue. In my view, today was a horribly officiated game, compounded by some extremely poor play by us. Refs might get subconsciously influenced by ‘narratives’ - the Souths game...

    Game Day: Knights v Manly [Round 13, 2023]

    Exactly. Forceful contact to the head must require an HIA

    Union’s radical proposal to fix the NRL’s contracting farce

    I keep on thinking about our predicament and how to undertake a proper rebuild. The reality is that without a draft, club’s can’t really afford to take a longer view. Introducing a draft would be a great initiative - it would be income generating for the NRL too, which would feed into the...

    Is Kent the biggest dribbler not on TV?

    My initial thought exactly…

    What's worth streaming on TV.

    Good call! Just finished it and loved it. Also just watched The Diplomat which was enjoyable as well.

    Game Day: Manly v Broncos [Round 10, 2023]

    ‘Magic Round’ is a round I watch with the commentators muted. I can’t handle the ‘magic’ puns… it’s just too much. As for tonight, I honestly can’t see how we get the win without Jake… Could be ugly.

    The No-Look News (Schuster Chronicles)

    And other teams’ fans are probably happy for Schu to be playing for us at the moment….

    The No-Look News (Schuster Chronicles)

    I agree. Whether we can wait for him to reach that potential will be informed by his response over the next 4 weeks. Interesting times!

    Kyle Flanagan: Journos can't decide which fib to print.

    I think those names you mention are reflective of our salary cap position. Seibold doesn’t have much room to move at this stage.

    The No-Look News (Schuster Chronicles)

    If he doesn’t shape up, I’d be ok with him being moved in. We can’t fall into the sunk cost fallacy. Yes, we have invested heavily but you have to take a forward looking view. Even if he left and reached his potential at another club, I’m ok with it because (at this stage) it’s doubtful he...

    Game Day: Manly v Titans [Round 9, 2023]

    I’m not confident tonight… Never am when it is Cummins who is ref.

    Jack Wighton free to negotiate ...

    Totally agree. The current system makes it really hard for the lesser clubs to rebuild as the distribution of talent does not happen as intended.

    Jack Wighton free to negotiate ...

    I don’t think it would make much difference registered or otherwise. For example, some players would be unlikely to leave Queensland, and next to zero chance to go to the Warriors. Warriors could register a high offer for the player knowing that, in reality, it won’t be accepted. Provided that...

    Jack Wighton free to negotiate ...

    The Tigers have tried throwing silly money at the likes of Munster and Moses. It was also rumoured that clubs were offering Tom $1.4m a year back when he last re-signed with us. If ‘market value’ for salary cap purposes was determined by what other clubs offered or were ‘willing’ to pay, then...

    Jack Wighton free to negotiate ...

    I don’t see an issue with him taking 900k even though offered more elsewhere. I don’t think Souths should have to carry him at a higher value either. I’ve come to terms with the fact that any decision made by Tod against Manly (including re Gift’s contract) was unjustified and should hold no...

    v'landy 'cap exemptions to buy good players'

    PVL is just upset that he is being out muscled in the Rent-a-Quote stakes. The RA chairman is doing a good job of getting rugby in the papers at the moment.

    Aloiai v Wakeham

    In the NFL and NBA, taunting gets penalised. I wouldn’t mind seeing the same in the NRL. Did it used to happen back in the day when punching on was the norm?

    Poker Nights

    On the one hand, I like reading positive article about manly. But on the other hand, I can’t help but think we have achieved nothing and articles like this might only make the team complacent.

    Is that confirmed as fact?

    It’s all just potential at this stage. Gordon Chan Kum Tong, Fletcher Meyers etc seem talents (I have no reference point against other clubs’ young players), but the easy trap is to magnify their potential ability while only magnifying the flaws of the incumbents.
