I hope we can quickly come to terms with the young International. Big and quick and a good defender. A modern day Luke Lewis type with a long term future.

Jesus, I read that all wrong for a second there. I read "moving on" as in, "time to go" and my brain went ?!?!?!?!?! for about thirty seconds.

I second the motion. Can we remove the phrase "Raiders to start moving on Nick Cotric"- because it is causing heart flutters and no amount of punctuation can save it, short of adding a word.

"Raiders to start moving on RE-SIGNING Nick Cotric..." would be better for our health. But worse click bait.

I get criticised if I don’t reproduce the headline, and I get criticised if I do.

I get criticised no matter what I do on absolutely everything.

All we ask is that you take a survey of 1000 users on how a headline will be interpreted before you post it.

Chalk me up as one that understood the headline. All very clear thanks GE and CT.

+1 for momentarily misinterpreting the poorly worded headline

I read it that the Canberra Times explicitly excluded Cotric from the group they consider to be "stars", and that made me very sad.

They could have at least said ...and other off-contract stars. But they didn't.

Now I don't know whether they want to move him on because he is not a star. But that also makes no sense, because why would they also want to move on our stars?

It's quite distressing.
