Re: Canberra Raiders' Curtis Scott set to go to court

haha, indeed Rog. Wouldnt we all? But that's money. His money on this contract might be solid, but his career beyond it is in deep trouble. Unless he turns it around here and rather quickly, he's not going to have a meaningful footy career post this contract. And if he steps out of line again, proba...

It would depend on the terms of the agreement on costs and for Scott, if it were me the best thing would be to get this cleared, put it behind him and focus on reviving my career, which is in a very precarious postion right now...

Re: Corey Harawira-Naera reportedly on the Raiders radar

Diverse views are great
Inaccurate portrayal of facts and defamatory accusations are not great and put the site at risk.
That’s where raiderstaker fell short, repeatedly.

But I agree wholeheartedly on your views on Okunbor and CHN.

I don’t think signing CHN would result in much backlash at all

Yeah i cant argue with that, his quick hands will be a problem at centre
I dont think it would be near the same level that is a fullback, in that it wont cripple our attack, but it would certainly result in a few lost chances.
