Re: Raiders reflect on the 2019 Grand Final

I can't believe I sat through 20 years of Sunday Footy Show / Sunday Roast / NRL 360 discussion about "one of these days a referee decision is going to cost a team a Premiership" and thought I had nothing to worry about in that regard.

Re: Canberra Raiders veteran Sia Soliola wants to play on

Or that the game changed in relation to lock forward play. Correct. The game very quickly shifted away from people like Fensom, he was mid career and it's hard to pivot when that happens. He's victim of circumstance and evolution. I bet if i went back and found posts from Roger at the time Fensom w...

Re: Canberra Raiders veteran Sia Soliola wants to play on

Yup over 50% won't like that post. Unfortunately for you I'm entitled to my opinion. Fensom was a good honest toiler, nice guy too. As soon as we started attracting players of the class of Sia he was swiftly moved on at the ripe old age of 28. The fact he couldn't male first grade smack bang in the ...

I think people underestimate the impact sia has on the team and club as a whole. I believe he has made papa into the confident player he is now and really leads the younger players. As much as Ricky has changed the culture at our club so has sia. He is the modern day Wiki. Yup. Pretty unbelievable ...

Re: $7.7m Triple treat: Jarrod Croker and Nick Cotric set to re-sign with Canberra Raiders

The long term allowance can't be used as a justification for Croker as from what I gather that's a 1 per team deal. We could use that on Paps. Crazy to use that as rationale to cut 200k off Croker's deal. I think it's probably about 25% over his market value but I get that you probably receive an ex...

Everyone in the footy world knew when he started whinging about 'needing to be paid fullback money' while he was at the Dragons that it would end up badly. It was obvious that his style of play was no longer suited to the modern 5/8 style fullback, and anyone paying him $800k plus was going to be b...

BJ on 700k for 2020, we probably got Curtis Scott for around half of that Scott was on 1.5 million over 3 years at the Storm. I'm guessing it was an incremental deal so he'd be on 500-550 this year.
