David Shillington's million dollar deal

I am sure a big reason Shillington wanted to stay was that he feels the club is on the way up. There is nothing worse for a player than to leave after a lot of hard work then see the team win the comp. Usually means a lifetime of 'if only I had stayed'

Re: McIntyre says Furner not under any pressure

I think Furner's early contract extension had a lot to do with upcoming player recruitment at the time. He was (is?) popular with the players and the likes of Harrison, Leahroyd-Lars, Picker etc coming off contract, definately feel more comfortable extending contracts when there is stability at the ...

Re: The litany as I see it

Stop wasting your breath on all these crazy theories. The problem is obvioulsy Phil Gould picking us to come 2nd.

We need him to release a revised statement that we are a sinking ship and no chance of winning a game.

2011 Rd 8 V Wests Tigers: Game Day and Post Match

Shillington was good sofar.

But our dummy half service has been atrocious.

Our forwards have no one who can step or put a good pass on.

Re: Vidot for Souths Logan

Vidot has dropped a few bombs, I think it is more to do with technique (and confidence) than ability. He has done some ridicolously high and mistimed jumps when leaping for the ball. This causes the head and eyes to move too much at the crucial moment and also places great importance on timing (whic...

Re: Canberra "Faders"

In the games against Bronco's, Tigers and Souths the Raiders went half an hour in each match without a penalty. And there were some there to be given.

The refs were a bit scared that we got that far ahead and they didn't want to 'have an upset on their watch'

We were duped!

Hookers (under pressure and fatigue) have to (49 times out of 50) be able to time their passes to the forwards, throw accurately balls onto the chest, pick when to run and pick when to pass quickly to the outside backs.

Re: Campo and Mogg as halves

Teams don't really play half and 5/8th anymore it's all about left and right. (Rightly or wrongly mind you). Under this model I think Campese stays generally on the left where he looked dangerous on the weekend. But Mogg and McCrone should both play on the right so we have two points of attack there...

Re: Should we make a play for Krisnan Inu?

Parra signed him for 250k a year and were after a payout in line with those dollars.

We have payed close to that for a lot less skillful outside backs in the past.

I think Inu is about to break into his prime and we should go for him (but at no more than 250k)
