    Are we willing to put a "I will walk naked to brookvale oval if it doesn't happen" type wager on it?

    Baz certainly not saying anything against you, but as I say when it's announced I'll be in raptures, as I am sure will every Manly fan on the planet (except maybe DCE)

    bet accepted and taken. Though I want to hear Baz put a bet on it.

    Hey if it happens I will strip of naked and chase my mrs around the living room whilst holding my willy and going "wooohooo"

    ......then again, that's not that different from most nights

    Ryan and I get on like a house on fire in real life. A better mate you will not find. His wife is a darling too and just as funny as he is.

    They were a hit at my wedding let me tell you

    Righteo Baz, is this from the same source that you had when discussing Des' power at the club ?

    I guess we find out how good the source is on this one

    I don't think it is that unlikely.... Orford was on $600,000 a season, he left and there is no way even with the upgrades for Choc, Wolfman and Robbo and the new contracts for Foran and Hodko that we spent that much. Add in all the others who have left / are leaving, le strange, perry, possibly matai, hodko. And now a $300,000 increase in the cap.

    It was announced he was on what $450,000 officially... I am not saying it will happen but to my mind that figure is far from unachievable.

    Certainly there are factors that work against us. Such as the competition we would see from pretty much everywhere else, the fact that it would hinder our recruitment of pretty much anyone else, and the fact that he may well still want to stay down there in cheatsville.

    In our favour are the potential of joining a team where he could actually win something, getting to play under Des and getting away from the crap that is starting to stick to everyone who wears purple and yellow.

    Would be a great signing if it happens, still doubtful - but don't see why practically it couldn't be made to work. In the end its up to Des and the team to decide what we need and how much they are going to pay for it, Cronk may or may not be worth that amount of money in their eyes.
