All people need to do to obtain proof of the cheating is type in the name of each Roosters player and find the original articles on their signing. Do the same on the upgrades etc... And it becomes abundantly clear that they are over the cap.

Also the NRL posted the TPA's at each club a while back and the Rorters were nowhere near the Storm. The whole players taking unders to go there is a massive red herring also-unless the NRL were lying about market value being enforced to stop clubs signing players unfairly.
well they posted the 'official' TPA's.
i don't think they included things like rolex watches, golf game winnings etc.

As long as the salary cap with TPAs exist, clubs like the Roosters will exploit it.
And as long as TPA’s exist the Roosters ( with their who’s who of Australian business on their board ) will continue to dominate the top 4 and Grand Finals through the hoarding of the top players in the game.

We might see the occasional success ( like the Panthers ) who build a team through mostly local juniors but the $$$ will always attract the best players who should have ( but not always )continual success.

The current Roosters side possibly needs a few more fresh faced million dollars a year players to be Grand Finalists again so I’m expecting the Panthers to be heavily raided by them once we get past 1st November.

As you know they can afford two first grade sides so expect a few duds (ie Ryan Hall) to be ****ed off and some superstars to be added.

Looks like Suaalii wants to follow his dream of signing up for Jobseeker...

Wests Tigers emerge as contender for Joseph Suaalii as Souths end interest

Wests Tigers have emerged as a shock contender in the messy chase to sign teenage prodigy Joseph Suaalii.
The Daily Telegraph can reveal Suaalii, 17, has told Souths he does not want to play at Redfern next season, despite being offered a stunning four-year deal worth $1.9 million.
Suaalii’s incredible demands — and a lack of desire to represent the famous club — has ended Souths’ interest in the young star.

There are even suggestions Suaalii has managed to tick off his other main suitor, Rugby Australia.
Suaalii was shopped to the Sydney Roosters and, while there was interest, it appears he could struggle to be squeezed in under the club’s tight salary cap.

While the Roosters are the masters of managing their cap, Suaalii couldn’t play his favourite position at Bondi — fullback — due to the long-term presence of James Tedesco.

Suaalii could also be used as a running five-eighth but the Roosters have Luke Keary locked down.

Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire has a huge opinion of Suaalii, who has a striking running game in both rugby codes — league and union.

Maguire helped a young Suaalii when the pair were at Souths. Wests Tigers would have the money to lodge an attractive offer and Suaalii could play fullback at Concord.

Several well-placed sources told The Daily Telegraph of Maguire’s strong interest in Suaalii. Maguire and Wests Tigers chief Justin Pascoe are away on leave.

The Tigers haven’t lodged any offer or opened formal discussions but the club’s interest in Suaalii is genuine. A deal could be struck from 2022 when the Tigers’ salary cap has settled.

Rumours circulated on Thursday that Suaalii was close to signing with the Roosters. This was however denied by those close to Suaalii, who has a development contract at Souths next year.
place.”

Despite their dislike for the Roosters, Souths would be prepared to release Suaalii to Bondi for 2021, provided the Roosters pay the Rabbitohs a development fee.

Suaalii has told Souths officials he does not want to play at the club next season, despite the Rabbitohs having nurtured the sports prodigy since the age of 13.

Even Souths coach Wayne Bennett has seemingly run out of patience with Suaalii, while there is confusion over who is actually representing Suaalii.

While Souths would never admit it publicly, Souths believe Suaalii and his family have disrespected their club.

The only way Suaalii could return to Souths would be by attending pre-season training — after putting contract negotiations on hold — and showing a hunger and desire.

Suaalii — still at school next year — wanted clauses inserted into his contract stating he could leave after each year, a request laughed off by Souths. One rival club, watching the Suaalii drama unfold, fear the kid could be lost to both codes.

Any potential clubs would be wary about the stipulations Suaalii could place on his any future contract.

If this is true I can't understand Wests' recruitment strategy. They have always had good, speedy backs and can rack up plenty of points. They have let go an Australian backline of talent over the past few years because their backline stocks are so strong.
What Wests need is more mongrel in their forwards who will play tough for 80 minutes.
Frankly, I'm sick of hearing about this kid who is either being manipulated by his manager and the media, or is a big head.

He’d go well in Union which is probably where he’s going to end up!!

It's a great example of mismanagement, trying to simply spike the bidding to it's maximum number, thinking of their cut and not the best interest of the client.
The kid is young and no doubt talented, so he has plenty of time to make the big bucks and simply needs a stable environment - far from what he is getting atm....these games would not be great for a young blokes head and in fact, can be detrimental to his career going forward.

Reports that Penrith will struggle to hang onto their stars after such a successful season... hmmm, it would appear that they need to switch over to the Roosters/Storm/Rabbits/Eels accountants.
I agree because our accountant will screw them just like he screws us
We need a new accountant feathered friend ;)

Some clubs have plenty of money like the Broncos that also have people with no common sense

At the end of the day . It is not what we have but what we do with what we have that makes all the difference

PS now I see your a little fond of, lifting the bar phrase recently Boz.

Now in this thread which that old phrase, its not what you have, but how u use it tag seems to get a run.

I really think you've missed an opportunity to lift the bar again feathered friend.

They'd go hand in hand.;-)
