    from the Squeeels forum (I just read and have a laugh, never post):

    ▶ Reply by Eeldarado
    He was signed on a two year deal worth $1.7 million, NO And I mean NO club pays that sort of coin for a player unless he is in the TOP 20 players of the NRL, Hoppa played well outside a representative Manly backline!

    We are paying Top dollar I expect a Top player performance I don't give a frig what sort of mission he has been on, it makes the club look, ridiculous I read the other day in the paper that even his old man said he had a quiet year, no player who earns that coin should be expected to have a quiet year!

    is it so hard to expect value for money?

    but the club is the main focus of my gripe, what ever possessed the moron to sign the cheque

    So is he to blame or the Club?

    Both have to share the responsibilities!

    The club are numb skulls for front that sort of money out to start with!

    And IMO Floppa ain't earning his keep, as I say In the real world "Big Pay equals Big Responsibilities" and Floppa has not held up his end of the bargain!

    Money for Nothing! was a Song by Dire Straits!

    Gotta admit they are close to the mark. Which spot would he take in the Manly backline outside wing? He would'nt replace either Centre, or Snake at fullback.

      We will take him back if they don't want him.

      Mabye this was our plan all along.

      Get the squeels to pay overs for him, then spend the next 2 years getting him back to NRL form as he took 2 years off, then Manly takes him back much cheaper... right as he hits peak performance.

      One can only hope.

        He's only there for the $$$. His hearts with Manly and after his contract expires he will want to return.

            No different to the bagging Jamie Lyon copped from some Manly fans during his 1st year here.

              The rumour I heard earlier in the year was now that the family was back on good terms with Manly, and the way Parra axed Jamil, Will coming back at the end of his current deal was lock. Just a rumour, but this faceless Internet poster was fairly adamant about it and they'd hit a few other marks previously so...

              I would take William back in a heart beat. Makes me feel ill that hes wearing their colours.

              He is the perfect replacement for Killer when he hangs up the boots.

                  Exactly, Orford another prime example of that. And all the Dropmough rubbish too

                    I guess that old adage "it's hard to soar like an eagle, when you're surrounded by eels"* fits the bill nicely here ;)

                    Orford deserved it.

                          Which one of the SOO halves are you talking about there ?? Hodkinson or DCE ? Orford was past his best in 2009 and his time was up.

                          Orford would have to be the classic example of a post gf win

                          He was great in 2008...then it was a pretty rapid decline. You would have to put that down, in part, to a prem hang over?

                          Hodkinson isn't a real half, he's the NRL's version of Alex Smith

                          Game controller in a play makers position

                          Choc has been past his absolute best since 2010
                          [hr]
                          Still had the same heart, plus 09 finals exit was for 2 reasons no ox hater ever lets get in the way of a good record Grand final winning captain and chief playmaker

                          Glen Hall and stranger missing for tragic reasons and Jarryd ****ing Hayne vs the st merge artichokes
