Many are blaming Bennett from what I hear but itís a nonsense to do so

The blame is the management at the donkeys and their new coach

WOD,  I agree.

Blaming previous coaches is a cop out. It comes down to personalities and how do you reward loyalty to players.

I blame this on the November trade window. You are signing players more than a year out and in that time, you may find juniors or injuries or players out of form or new coaches.

Thus they want players to pay the penalty first. Look at some of the clubs cleaning out a few players but paying for part of their salaries.

If I was a player, I would stick to my guns and say pay me even I play reserve grade or pay me out a year or two.

What does "Milford on his last chance" mean?

I was intrigued by that too. Is it off field issues because that is what they say when that occurs?

Sam Burgess is being pursued by the NRL for his comments about a "kangaroo court".

Is Des Hasler being similarily pursued for his comments about Manly being dudded?

Canberra have not won a premiership since 1994.

Parramatta have not won a premiership since 1986.

If you remember them winning the competitions and you were not in high school then,  you are getting up there in age.

Is it just me or does this NRL gf does not enhthuse people as much as last few years.

Raiders will be a fairytale for some but Stuart coaching has polarised many neutrals due to Parramatta and Sharks. He has done a great job this year though.

Roosters were usually in the top 3 of the most hated teams in league. But with Tedesco, Cronk, Keary, , Cordner, Manu, Tupou, Mitchell etc it has a team of individuals  which are hard to dislike.
The negative is the brilliance of their salary cap management.

There is Just as much interest in Melbourne in UFC 243 at Marvel Stadium as there is in NRL grand final.

Both on Sunday.

I thought UFC was very popular in Melbourne as it is a sell out too.

I think Melbourne interest in the Nrl was the same as most Sydneysiders interest in the AFL gf last week even though it was one of of ours playing Richmond.

I hope the NRL gf is better than the afl as I switched off midway 3 quarters.

You did well to last that long. I tortured myself through the fumbleathon for the first quarter

It was a horrible spectacle

Hope was the only reason I stayed watching. I felt sorry for the neutrals and GWS fans at the game. Too expensive to walk out but I could still turn the channels.
