    He is, i don't know why he felt the need to take that shot, but he couldn't have been any wider of the mark if he tried, this shoulder problem is the first time Bird's missed games through injury since being in the top grade, he's only played a utility role in representive games and has been selected for 5 consecutive origins.

    God you boys are precious, it was simply the first example that came to mind. You can't say anything about the mighty Broncos with being accused of taking pot shots or knowing nothing or being a football retard, deadset some of you blokes are tops. Don't get so sooky la la. Signing players on massive dollars is always a risk, Bird for a million is a big risk, you can't deny it, he has a chronic illness and hasn't solidified a certain position at club level (that is the utility reference, is he a FB, a centre, a half a lock, I imagine his versatility will haunt him much like It has Hayne) Hayne at any price at the moment is a big risk, he has a chronic headspace issue/motivation issue, I'm not one eyed enough to deny it, move along.

    notice no-one came at Pieman with his Matt Lodge dig in the Broncos thread? No-ones getting their knickers in a knot over you 'saying anything about the mighty Broncos', it's more confusion at why you would bizarrely bring them into a discussion that didn't involve them or any Broncos supporters in such a half-assed, lazy and incorrect fashion. it'd be like me responding to the aforementioned Pieman post with "Well yeah Lodge is a bit of a shit-cunt, but Hayne is a lazy-eyed fuck that probably bashes woman' and expect you not to have your say.

    No one replied to that because there is no argument for signing a piece of shit like that.

    And Ice is most certainly spot on, if someone says something that remotely resembles a criticism of the Bronco's (and sometimes even if its just interpreted as one) a handful of posters here absolutely get their backs up for no good reason. Its good tho coz it would be pretty boring around here if that didnt happen.

    Most Broncos don't want Lodge signed. It's no surprise that Bennett has done so though, he has a history of signing or trying to sign guys with poor histories. He was trying to sign Russell Packer to the Knights before the Dragons got him. Didn't Chris Houston come back under Bennett after his stint in England? From what I gather I think even back in the 80's when he started in the Broncos, they knew of Joe Kilroy's history.

    It seems he's far more forgiving of serious past sins than he is of much less criminal or behaviourial indescretions under his watch (Costigan, Gagai, O'Neill etc)

    in what world do you live in, in which you can expect to criticise something and not be met with some sort of pushback? Especially when a large portion of Broncos criticism here is much less 'criticism' and much more 'over-exaggeration' or 'made-up bullshit'.

    just so we're clear on where you stand in agreement with Ice, you spending the entire back end of the season getting all wound up over RYNO's comments earlier in the season about the Knights not improving was you being precious and a 'sooky la la'?

    I used the bird example cause i assumed it would be easily understood by the Bulk of supporters around here and was a current issue in the media, nothing bizarre about that and nothing incorrect about it either, and it appears most Broncos fans took it as such, sorry that you struggled with it.  But the point stands, Bird at a million is a big risk. If you don't agree, then so be it, but it doesn't make the comparison any less valid and certainly wasn't a cheap shot, which is clearly how you've taken it.

    And the Matt Lodge thing Is also a valid point, and one that had been previously speculated about so perfectly natural for Pieman to raise his signing.  it's a terrible signing by a team that usually and many profess have set and hold themselves to higher standards, and I think most reasonable Broncos posters around here have said they don't like the Lodge signing as they should.

    sooooooo, in other words:

    "Hmm, as usual, i've found myself in a spot where answering a simple question will prove me to be the giant hypocrite that i am, so i'll go back to the well - an 'insulting' nickname that an 8-year-old would think up and then go 'no, that's stupid, i need something better', then i'll ignore the question in favour of playing eenie meenie minie mo with the emojis, and to finish it off, revelling in the dumb shit i spewed like a dog that licks up his own vomit, and then just press the send button, and it's good to go! did i do good, Nurse Ratched?"

    So its being reported that Hayne has agreed to terms with the Eels for 500k x1 year, but its delaying announcing it and requesting a release from the Titan's until after the world cup so that he can continue getting paid his share of the 1.2.

    Thoughts?

    Sounds like half a story.

    Yep he is entitled to pocket $180k (Nov/Dec) before he is due to return in Jan. But how can he be signing with another club ? There has to be more to the story than Hayne is a money hungry lazy grub. Do the titans need to release him ? do they want to release him ? Do they charge a $200K get out of contract early fee ?
