    Its funny coz thats almost what the broncos side would look like if they didnt have their Brisbane TPA advantages
    Similar to melb

    star
    halfback (hunt/cronk)
    centre (roberts/chambers)
    hooker (mccullough/smith)
    milf could play the slater role at fullback

    one of the good props (maquire/brom)
    one of the good back rowers (gillett/harris)

    then fill the rest of the side with nuffies - its still a fucking good team.

    thats basically what melbourne have been doing since they got stung for rorting.

    not even the most hardcore of broncos fans would pretend milf/roberts/hunt/mccullough/mcguire/gillett are comparable to slater/chambers/cronk/smith/brom/harris in total ability or pay, but sure, whatever gets you to sleep, snuggled up in your blanket safe in the knowledge that those dastardly broncos are a bunch of cheating cheaters.

    I keep hearing it's all about the spine in rugby league these days. Broncos were basically full strength only missing Boyd. The better team won.

    It's a shame the graciousness of most of the Broncs fans on here gets lost in the whinging.
    If you don't want players missing over origin then don't use your bottomless chequebook to sign those players.

    So what should we do? Let go of quality players like Fifita and Austin just like the Tigers. That worked out well didnt it?

    Well yeah, you see that's what normal teams need to do to stay under the cap. The Tigers are just worse at it than most.
    Interestingly enough it worked out just fine last night.
    Instead of being a miserable cunt about it why not say well done Tigers the better team on the night won. That's what most genuine fans of the game would do instead of bleating about how their team is so fucking stacked that they lose 1000 games of experience to origin.

    Just like that except without adding on all the bitching and moaning afterwards. Seriously you'd think you just lost a GF in extra time.

    Also rather then suggesting the Broncos are cheating the cap (you are not the only person on this forum who does it either) why not show me some cold hard evidence. I am yet to see the Broncos being fined or deducted points for salary cap cheating. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

    Just like all the bitching and moaning Tigers fans have been doing since not making the finals since 2011? Got it.

    Where have I suggested that? The fact is with the way the cap is structured and the tpas at their disposal they shouldn't need to. The whole Andrew Gee thing did have a certain stench about though it wouldn't you say?
