    How short are our memories?

    Bloody hell Silvertailers. ONE loss to the frikkin Sharks during a season which will forever have a * next to the premiers...... and everyone starts doing their best impersonation of Chicken Licken??? I have just logged on for the first time since the loss, and you wouldn't know we are in the...

    Quick question re: Kayo, Foxtel, Live Pass or Channel 9 - please help?

    Hi all, Technical question here.... I have young kids, so can't always watch a live match - but i ALWAYS want to watch a match before I hear the score. Sometimes, it might be a matter of catching up an hour after kick off, or 2 hours etc (when they go to bed). I have Foxtel Go on my smart TV...

    What slot is 'prime time' in the new world?

    Hi all, Interesting to see we have heads of Sunday afternoon/twilight games, and a few other time slots sprinkled in throughout the year. Historically, Thursday and Friday night @ 7:30pm was deemed the 'golden ticket' for marketing $$$ with Channel 9 and Fox, followed by Sunday afternoon. But...

    Well played PVL - go hard

    First time posting an article, so have likely done it wrong.... but I am chuffed to see he has stamped down hard on these muppets. NRL hands out hefty fines to players for breaking coronavirus restrictions - ABC News

    What will the extended break mean for.....(injuries)

    Injuries? Will we have almost everyone back - fit and firing? Other than Fainu of course. Hoppa? AFB? Also - what about our opposition? We have played the Storm and Roosters already (no qualms there) but do any of the other opponents have any star players who might be able to make it back on...

    NRL digital and TV rights offshore - an opportunity?

    Howdy y'all, As many of you know, I work in finance and marketing, so my mind has a tendency to drift to revenue opportunities with a slight edge of scepticism thrown in I can't help but feel that the May 28th restart is VERY driven by revenue/financial necessity rather than a health-related...

    Cross code training

    Picking up on the theme of Val Holmes and the 49'ers having an Aussie kicking academy etc.... Why don't we see more cross-code training in Rugby League? I'm not talking superficial stuff like Graham Arnold coaching a goal kicker - but full on, serious cross code training. Israel Folau (for...

    Daly M Snub = good outcome?

    Just a thought - are any player bonuses or rewards aligned with the Daly M's? I.e. does DCE or Tom etc perhaps become eligible for a bonus by winning it? If so - what a WIN for the club! No one got int he team of the year..... no bonuses to be paid! And now.,... we are so far under the radar...

    So many injuries...

    I thought that our injury problems were all Ferris’s fault? Where is the Ferris bashing brigade now? We have more injuries than ever before!!!! Planning to blame Donny S? Didn’t think so. It’s called LUCK. Sometimes you have it (and win premierships). Sometimes you don’t. Great year lads...

    Suggesting paycuts mid-contract

    Right - I've had enough. I am sick to death of seeing comments on here about how DCE should offer to take a pay cut. Are people being serious here? The captain of QLD, the Australian Half Back, one of our most successful players of all time (and likely most successful captain the way he is...

    Paseka; delivering on the hype

    apologies if I missed it along the way, but surely his epic performance on Thursday night was his best ever outing for us? From memory, there’s been a few people here with strong wraps on the guy (@Ryan i think you’ve always been a supporter - not sure who else?) well I 100% see it now He was...

    'legitimate' games

    Here's a question for the smart cookies out there: Do trial games count towards your total career tally of matches? I assume they don't..... because they don't get counted as competition points - is that correct? Ergo; If a team is found to have rorted the salary cap, and points deducted (or...

    Storm match in Melbourne

    Howdy all, I live in Melbourne these days - so rarely get to watch the mighty eagles. A good mate of mine is flying to Melbourne for the weekend, and we are making the pilgrimage to AAMI stadium to watch the mighty eagles go round again (can't wait already). Anyone know if there is any organised...

    What is Noddy's tipping performance in manly games this year?

    I note (once again) that Noddy tipped The Saints last week to beat us by 8 points (from memory)? It feels like he has only tipped us for a couple of wins this year.... does anyone know: How many times he has tipped us? How he still has a job (and a 'voice' in Rugby League?) I understand that...

    Player/s who haven't improved under Des this year

    I was thinking about this last night watching the game - and I must admit, there is one player who i think hasn't improved this year. It stood out as I watched each of our sets in the first half, and it became even more evident towards the back end of the game.... and that player (i'm sorry to...

    Break the season into 4 chunks - and make some more predictions

    I am overjoyed with our performance YTD. Many of you will remember that there was a lot of negativity regarding our depth and ability this year (there are plenty of posters who had warned of a 0/5 or 0/7 start to the season). Others were a little more 'optimistic' - but I don't think any of us...

    Driving down the price...

    Does anyone know when TV rights negotiations will start for the next agreement? From memory, the rights cost $1.8bn for 5 years (starting in 2016) so I assume it is still a year or so before negotiations start. I just cannot see the game achieving the same kind of viewership in the next 12...

    Tip for TBaz This weeks gameplan

    Simple really: Get all the lads to pool their match fee (lets say $1,200/player just for fun) and then have all 17 players kneel on the heads of the oppossition Knock them all out, concede no penalties, and no one gets suspended. 2 points in the bag. Surely this is a better game play than...

    The cold hard facts - the offseason

    #nextweek has arrived - and I have to say..... how good are we going! Someone smarter than I can possibly reply with a factual account of actual player (and front office) movements... but from where I sit, our management is playing an absolute blinder of an innings. We have locked most of our...
