    Of course they'll bail out the bloody Titans!That's their pet team at the moment.They seem to get every 50/50 call at skilled stadium.Why-because the AFL is coming to town,and they have to have their NRL team performing to counter the threat!

    This is a good precedent if we ever look like going under.  Why doesn't the NRL have the balls to tell the Sharks to go to Adelaide?  I can see the rationale for supporting the Titans and Drugcastle, but not the Gummies.

    What hope for Rugby League..really. These teams need to be let die I believe, give the other boys on the sidelines a go. What happens if the Titans cost us a GF, its legalised cheating. Everyone else has to do the hard yards off the field not just sponge off handouts.

    And I just read in the Telegraph that the Titans are offering Inglis 100K more than Brisbane.  How can they do this and still put their hand out for a loan from the NRL.  Just stupidity.
