That is a very satisfying grand final. Both characters deserve the win. But alas, there can be only one; My vote is in.

Re: Raiders stars protest as NRL considers banning players

Agreed with all that Old School Green.

Somewhat related to both topics above, Saints just signed Taysom Hill for 2 years at $21m and $16m guaranteed. Obviously putting a high value on having the gadget play QB. Pheagles must be looking at the same with Hurts and making a serious commitment to it by spending a high draft pick. I think th...

Re: NFL Thread

I can't see how Hurts is even going to get the opportunity to show he's worth a 1st round pick in a trade. It would need Wentz to have a decent stint on the sideline. Wentz will barely play a lick of pre season. He’ll get the lions share of snaps there I’m tipping Honestly can't remember last time ...

think this is a classic case of a fan base not liking a pick, but than pushing back when fans of other teams bag the pick. It happens all the time - last year’s example was Daniel Jones.

I am loathe to defend the pick because i dont think it's what should have been done, but the criticism of it is certainly starting to swing too far in the one direction. If Hurts is completely and totally worthless, he'll join roughly 60% of the 2nd round class who will also be viewed 4 years from ...
