    Its amazing how often the Telegraph online screw up their headlines, captions and general reporting. Seen it happening for years. It must be junior journos on the midnight shift who have no clue about rugby league. Or Phil Rothfield.

    I have given up on the Telegraph, and I dont miss it. I went to Manly Daily on-line and they are all over that as well. You had to pay there but it was easy to get around by clicking one of the side stories. But really between here, NRL.com and smh and a few others you don't miss anything except all their "scoops" that are BS anyhow.

    The telegraph on line is womans weekly with a sport section. The sport section prides itself of quantity not quality I havnt bought a newspaper in 5 years. They cut me a while back on line and while I have found ways to get around it for fun, i just dont bother anymore. Ive decided we are no good for each other and continuing the relationship was no good for either of us. The telegraph is happy as they feel they got the last word by cutting me, and Im happy as i dont have to live with a lying, deceitful bitch with double standards and poor hygeine

    650 grand!! That's madness for him! He's playing like 65k at present. Let's hope he gets back into form.

    I'd rather Snake back on the field first and not worrying about anything else than playing.

    Will they still take him? 650k for next year is hard to believe. Who worked out these back ended contracts?

    The same person that wrote that figure in the article also has Foran playing for the Dogs tonight and Stewart playing in Wollongong ...

    Surely it isn't right? We won't be able to sign any props if Glernn is on 650k alone!

    What we need to also remember is the cap is going up a lot, what used to be 400 will now be 600 etc

    But seriously, I never take any notice of the figures thrown around in the papers, how the hell would they have any idea who is being paid what ? The player certainly won't be telling them and I doubt the men penning the deals would be either

    If Manly make it to the GF this year, we 'd better win by a BIG margin. If the match is close, no good.

    We are being set up. A lot of media publicity and emphasizing perceived decisions by refs, favouring MWSE. Why ?
    So they'll have an excuse to perpetrate the mother of all square-ups in the 2nd half of the GF, where forward passes, strips, high-shots, multiple 6 agains, inside the 10, obstructions are all allowed to favour whoever it is we are playing. :mad:

    No you have it all the wrong way around. That already happened in last years grand final and only now we are getting the favorable decisions in an attempt to make up for it.
