    Ted on his own keeps the tigers in finals contention, much like hayne at the titans. When ted gets hurt (i hope to god he doesnt because he is just brilliant to watch) and misses 6-10 games they will lose just about all of them and then just miss about on the finals as usual.

    What is the fix for the tigers though? An edge back rower and another decent front rower? hooker?
    They are still paying a pretty decent hooker

    Titans might be more than a one man show this year.

    Tigers need run out with the same attitude and intensity every game. This yo-yo shit drives people nuts.

    maybe yeah, they have a pretty decent team on paper.
    I think he is the difference between a week 1 exit and a QF or GF berth for them tho

    So the rumour out last week was that Moses signed a deal with the Roosters in the off-season only to backflip and use the new 10 day cooling off period to get out of it.

    At the time thought if they could get Moses over Keary that they would do it - or that Pearce might fuck up again.

    Now with Watson though I don't think they need him.

    Remember last year Gould accidentally tweeted that the Roosters were chasing moses?

    In the last few days Simona has been linked to the Eels, Titans and Sharks...
    How the absolute fuck are the tigers still having cap issues?

    They sign a million buck teenager yet dont secure the services of a very good yet injury prone outside back in Simona? Just how much fucking money is Kev Naiquama on?

    Crazy

    I have no funking idea how we are constantly over the cap when you compare our roster to some other teams. I get the fact TPA's are to blame but I was under the impression TPA's were capped otherwise rich teams could buy a premiership. Our Uncle Harry apparently contributes 1 million dollars a year to our TPA's but it never seems enough. How much are we paying our fringe first graders? I wish contracts were transparent.

    On Simona, there are rumblings that a swap deal has been done with the Titans and we are getting Zillman in return. Expect an announcement soon

    I always thought that TPA's couldn't be more than a certain percentage of a players cap wage, but Im not sure.

    It's crazy hey.. guys like Kev and Nofo much be on shitloads...

    On paper, besides 4 or 5 blokes, it is a shocker of a roster - Its crazy to think that those blokes are taking the club close to or over the cap limit.

    After tedesco, Simona is their best outside back - I dont understand why they would let him go and keep guys like Kev/Nofo/Rankin

    According to zero tackle 

    Brooks and Moses are on 600K each
    Tedesco is on 450K
    Lawrence took an unselfish paycut and is now on 300K

    If memory serves me correct Woods was on 400K
    Farah is still on books for about 750K
    Siro is still on the books
    Ballin is only costing us about 200K apparently
    Idris came cheap

    So the rest of the plodders must be getting some serious coin. I don't know why because they ain't superstars

    Rankin
    Nofo
    Simona
    Naiqama
    Sue
    Ava
    E Taylor
    Aloiai
    Grant
    Lovett

    then the fringies
    Hunt
    Littlejohn
    Chee-kam
    Edwards

    I think this explains it perfectly and shows what a real cap looks like.

    Above the line (plodder comment)
    About $4M

    Below the line (plodder comment + fringes)

    NB. You are missing 4 players to =25. At minimum wage that's $1.5M. At just $100K that's $2M. That only leaves you $1M to spread across your plodders so they are on more than $100K.

    Admittedly I've done some rounding and there is obviously still people on overs and poor cap management, but this is a realistic side with a $7M cap, with the exception of 1 more superstar or a couple of $400K workhorses to make up for Siro & Farah.
