Bozo, appreciate your response.Thank you for your point of view feathered friend
This is my perspective
The problem is we look for excuses instead of being innovating to find solutions
and Salary cap debacles are derived from incompetent salary cap management
The moral of the story is
You get paid to do a job
You either find a way and prevail or find your self another job Just like the West Tigers incompetent Management who crippled their club with their decade of failing excuses
Nothing is easy in this world , It is harsh , not fair or kind
We Either Adapt or die !

I think though you are making an assumption about an issue that was not my intention. I was in no way seeking excuses. It had nothing specifically to do with the Sea Eagles. It is about the structure of the geographical areas designated for the various clubs in terms of junior talent to remain competitive in those competitions. And surely equitable competition is in everyone's interest in maintaining the integrity of the system.. Without a degree of equity in this regard, clubs with smaller designated areas are having to constantly import talent.
As for the salary cap, when you have a loose structure like that, it invites fiddling the figures, it is near impossible to police. All sorts of secondary offerings can be made that cant be effectively monitored. That's why a player points system or draft would be far more effective, otherwise the risk is, we loose clubs and therefore support bases.
Adaptation or change is essential in any structure. Without it comes stagnation and degeneration, which is more fitting to the pictures you've displayed.
