Re: Curtis Scott

So far NAS is the only one to be punished for anything :-\ The Fafita incident is really puzzling to me. It seems to be quite similar to NAS except he is charged with an offence. I guess the NRL thinks that NAS' incident was a bigger hit to the game's reputation because it was captured on video. Th...

Re: Official thread and signing news

So what happens if both hookers get injured in the season? Who is next in line??? Dumb move. Disagree. I'd rather have the chance to get Grant back after 12 months than lose him permanently because he's disgruntled with the pecking order or lack of first grade opportunities with us. Besides, Grant ...

I think a lot of these 'reporters' post stuff about salaries etc that are complete heresay based on what one of their 'contacts' inside the club have let on.

Smith, Slater and Bellamy are all one club men and automatically associated with the Storm. If you include Cronk an argument could be made for Inglis...
Inglis wasn't part of our 2012 and 2017 premiership teams so I don't think he's in the same category.

Re: Smith and Slater Statue

I'm very torn on this. Smith > Slater > Cronk in terms of status as all-time rankings for their positions But I don't know if the club would have had such success without the three of them together. All our GF victories (excl 1999) have had the three of them feature quite prominently. They were cons...

Re: Official thread and signing news

Meh I don't know what all your fuss is about. It's normal for clubs in salary cap scenarios to go through stages of rebuilding. We've had it good for so long and now we're just experiencing the downturn that's to be expected in a salary cap economy. Can't really see how the club has 'mismanaged' a s...

Proberly more likely a young guy but totally wouldn’t be surprised someone like a gagai would come down south
Would love that but I don't think we would have the cap space?

Re: Official thread and signing news

If his heart isn't going to be in it then it's better that he leaves the club. As exceptional of a talent as he is, it wouldn't be good in the long term to have him forced to play out his contract. It will be interesting to see if Craig can keep him focused and committed this year. I have thoroughly...

Re: Official thread and signing news

Sallymay you are right with everything in the last post. But the thing I am most angry with and what people are upset by is, all those players had current contract and asked to be released. A contract should be honored. Contracts don't mean anything in RL. I can't think of another professional spor...

Re: Official thread and signing news

I get re-signing players is (mostly) good. Just not sure if Kenny or Kamikamica needed to be given new contracts just yet. If it makes you feel better, contracts these days don't seem to be worth the paper they're printed on. - Kasiano was contracted to end of 2020 - Drinkwater was contracted to en...

Re: Storm to finish 9th in the 2019 Ladder

Towards the end of the season the other teams would have had more video on our young guys who were surprise packets at the start of the year (I'm thinking Hughes and Paps in particular).

If you need high kicks to the corner to make an impact then you're probably overvalued and overrated.
If the other clubs in the comp would be willing to pay round about what we paid (many would probably pay more) then he was 'valued' at about the right price.

Re: Suli

It's a chicken/egg situation really. Is it the gameplan that limits what the halves do or is it the limitations of our halves that determine what the gameplan is? Either way we need to factor in more aerial opportunities for Suli or else he doesn't get the chance to produce those diamond plays that ...
