Re: NFL Thread

Ruggs blew the starts on both his runs. Reckon he might have another crack at his pro day. The 40 time i thought was most impressive was Jefferson. Ran a 4.4... that's going to move up from a borderline first to locked into the first imo Such a strong receiver class this year you will see a few 1st...

Re: New Zealand Warriors reportedly interested in signing Jack Murchie

I think Stuarts policy is, if you express interest in playing for another club and you don't want to fight for your spot at the Raiders, then you may as well go. Murchie is only 22 and he has just bulked up to play in the middle. Theoretically, he's not even close to his peak. I wish him all the be...

Re: John Bateman undergoes minor shoulder surgery

Horse was in Batemans spot at the fan day, and has been training there. While it was a 1-2 wks deal, i was ok with this.
Now that its 7-8, surely the smart play is push Tapine wider, and play Sutton at 13.

Just saw this article, which is a good run down of the new passing drills this year. More representative of what QBs will need to do in the NFL.

NFLPA has agreed to send the CBA to the players for a vote.

Cam Green making runs again. I really hope this kid is the real deal. If he can overcome his back issues he might end our long search for a quality all-rounder. Thats where I was going.

Re: 2020 Trial: Canberra Raiders V Canterbury Bulldogs

Why haven't we named a team? Or even a squad? That’s a good question. For the trials, the NRL should expect that clubs follow the normal rules for Tuesday afternoon announcements. It’s a very basic thing which promotes the clubs and the code. TBF, not all teams have, but it be the usual TLT deal.

Not sure what you're saying. Current rookie minimum is $480k and the new proposal has increases of $100k in 2020, $50k in 2021 and $45k each year after that. NFL minimum salary and practice squad increases are similar. Though I believe the latter are paid weekly. Thats roughly 20% increase initiall...

That statement by the NFLPA says they want increases in the minimum and practice squad salaries. Unless the majority of the pay increase is swallowed up by these you will always see the top end get the largest share. That's just the way of professional sports.
