    52 pages in the other thread and not a single party post. I'm shutting that down.

    Continue the discussion there of how Brisbane are clearly the greatest club in the history of the league but are also the root of all evil and run by Satan himself

    Sure, it's easy for me to be an armchair critic and say things like "player x is shit and should never have gotten a debut" or player y should have gotten picked before that guy without knowing all the ins and outs of it but I'm pretty confident in saying that just cos you get an NRL debut, doesn't make you quality.
    Getting a professional contract in the best RL comp in the world is the very definition of a quality player. Where do the 4 better players all end up, reserve grade and bush comps would be better than the NRL if that statement were in any way true. While some who are good enough miss out through injury and off field issues it is nowhere near that number.

    More saying that there are players out there that never get the chance be it through family situations (parents can't afford development camps where scouts are etc) or other extenuating circumstances.

    I'd bet my left testicle (lost the right one making a similar bet) that there'd be 100 incredible players on the islands and up in the NT reserves that'd never get selected.

    Hahaha, smartarse!  Razz I think you get my point tho. Not everyone get's their chance and not everyone (IMO) deserves to be called "quality" just because they did. It's an opinion and not everyone will agree but I'm ok with that. I'm not here to tickle ya funny bone and rustle ya jimmies!

    Even the worst players in NRL sides are the best players in their own Groups or Comps.
    Making an NRL squad, and playing 1 NRL game, means you are a fucking good player.
