    Talk seems to be only Newcastle, NZ and Sharks have cap space.

    Do we? Any players we could pick up?

    According to the Courier Mail Proctor is on $100k.  He'd be a steal at that price and would beef up our pack.

    Trouble is this scandal has a long way to go yet & until Deloittes finalise their forensic audit how would anyone be sure they arnt picking up a storm player who has knowingly received rorted cap funds.

    Might be better to keep distant.

    I hate Billy Slater but if he had played for Manly I would have seen things differently he truly is a good footballer

    Dan, Dan, Dan.  I know you're better than that.  There are some places we shouldn't go.  The Eagles don't need any more players.  We have the team to take the silverware this year and next.

    I am not saying we should buy him. I am just saying that he is a bloody good player, grub or not, and any team that have him in their lineup are lucky

    my guess is the storm will offload more of the mid range players.

    Reasoning is that no one will be able to afford to match the contracts for the top echelon, and therefore storm would still pay under the cap.

    Bottom echelon no good either as they still have to have 25 players paid at least min pay.

    We were linked to the Willymeister at one stage so we could have some room.

    Middle will be just as hard as well given they will just have to replace them with some bottom tier under twenties

    Melbourne have three of the best players in the game in Inglis, Slater and Smith. Add Cronk, Hoffman and White to that and you have more than half a team's salary cap. They will have to lose some of that lot to stay afloat. To think they had Falou, King and a few others in addition is unbelievable.

    Brisbane have had similar rosters and yet seem to escape scrutiny.

    Maroon with an eagle on the front.

    As to the other one, well I hope it is all hunky dory and 'sweet as a nut'. Yep, that's what I hope.

    Cant say i follow, Melbourne will be f*cked no matter what so they will need to offload the players that have the highest likelyhood of getting another deal in full. Surely they have more chance in the middle tier
