    Signing a 31 year old for 3 more years is brave methinks.

    Well I'd offer Prince a 10 year deal if he wanted it. Cronk I'd quite happily sign for 3 years, Wallace as well probably. Thurston has the ability but wouldn't want him in Manly colours.

    As much as it galls me, I'd probably take Finch.  At least we'd get a good run from the refs.

    Beau Henry from the Drags under 20s would be nice.
    Although i think we need a player with a bit of experience to guide Foran along..

    would like to get Todd Carney, but re-sign Orford for 1 year + a 1 year option would be another way to go making sure that we keep our kids as well

    Interesting that after flogging Johns all week for his behaviour you would then sign a bloke like Carney

    Carney is a pisspot and stupid, not 31, and not married with kids.  He has more footie talent than Johns had, and hasn't, to my knowledge, been involved in a gang-bang, or mass masturbation show.  Not hanging offenses I grant you, but enough that the League community and his wife, think his behaviour was totally inappropriate, as do I.  Now I put the view that Carney would be a good proposition for us to sign as a 7, that's all.  I was not asked to comment on his morals, behaviour or any other matter relating to him.  Maybe it would be a good thing if those items could be included in all contracts from now on, for all players.  And if you check back through my posts I've been calling for one of our own to be promoted into the No 7 position.
