    As I let you guys no earlier in the week carney has just resigned with canberra,I know you guys just love mayer but the big mouth couldn't get us carney now wait and see who he trys to sign.I don't count perry or vaeliki as a big signing.If I remember correct our last BIG name signings Kennedy,Kite,Orford if you consider him a big signing were done before mayer showed up.I know it may be not be a popular opinion here but the facts are he has not managed to jag a big name signing that we have earmarked.I would suggest he stops leaking stories to the media ragarding who we are after and concentrate on snaring someone.

    Yeah sorry about that clearly an error on my behalf,but that dosn't change the facts its easy to bag me I think we should look at the chief exec.Hows this last year we are all told to shut up Lyon is the goods and will be a great 5/8 so they let our backup go in burns and now they decide we need a 5/8 whos running the show I ask,if we look at it in the cold light of the day we have orford and lyon as 1/2 n 5/8 if one or the other is injured we go from a top 4 prospect to a bottom 4 prospect we have spread our depth way to thin and we don't seem capable of attracting a representative quality 5/8.We all know lyon is a centre.Lastley before anyone brings up lyon as a big signing under mayer we all know he signed because of cleal.

    Mate is there any reason you have an axe to grind against GM?  We made the GF, last year, things are going reasonably well financially.  Do you prefer Pat Wilson

    At Canberra, the biggest recruitment target in the game, halfback Todd Carney, said he hoped the Raiders and the two other clubs chasing him for next season - Penrith and Manly - would understand if he needed until next week to decide his future.

    "If I needed to wait until next week I hope everyone would realise why," Carney said. "I think they would. It's a pretty big decision and I always wanted to give Canberra the chance to keep me. I've spoken to them again this week. I'm really not sure what I'm going to do and we've got our first game coming up on Saturday [against Newcastle at EnergyAustralia Stadium]. I've got to start concentrating on that."

    Officials from the three clubs are unsure of how they will fare in the race for Carney's signature.

    Penrith general manager Mick Leary said his experience was that the longer a player took to decide, the more likely he was to stay with his existing club, and that he was hoping to be wrong.

    Manly chief executive Grant Mayer said he was confused by the delay but the Sea Eagles were prepared to wait.

    Canberra chief executive Don Furner said he had a gut feeling Carney would make a decision before this weekend.

    The Herald understands the chances of Canberra keeping Carney have improved significantly in recent days.

    Did someone forget to flush the toilets or is this some sad reincarnation of the oracle?
