    Should have been the first emoticon created.

    Given how often someone has mentioned this also, it's probably fair to say Randow has failed miserably

    Reverse Italics should be an international font for sarcasm.

    This place will have more mods than members soon at this rate. I've always quietly enjoyed watching No Worries not being a mod despite his old Sportal sig.

    Tigers still signing youngsters on potential and we know how successful that has been in the past *sarcasm remark*

    Mosese Suli has just become the highest-paid player yet to play NRL.

    The teenager, considered one of the most promising youngsters in the game, signed a three-year extension, believed to be worth $1.3 million, on Friday to remain at Wests Tigers. The deal is all the more remarkable given he has made just two National Youth Competition appearances, neither of which he was able to finish due to back issues.

    For most fans, Suli is the hottest young talent they have never heard of. But astute football judges are aware of his potential and were desperate for his signature.

    Canterbury coach Des Hasler and Melbourne counterpart Craig Bellamy personally made pitches to sign Suli. However, the Tigers pulled off a coup via an unprecedented deal that also provides the 18-year-old with an upgrade for the current season.

    "It's exciting," Suli told Fairfax Media. "In my head, I never wanted to leave the Tigers.

    "They've given me a chance since I was 15. They're a great bunch of boys, they're easy to get along with.

    I see where this is headed. Pretty soon they'll be signing up primary school kids. Then sons of legends will be on good coin as soon as they're taken home from the hospital.

    Sooner or later they'll be sneaking through the washing in Andrew Johns' laundry hoping to pin a contract on a track work sock.

    How is this possible? We are always on the brink of the salary cap yet don't have the long rosters of other teams. Just sack Lovett and be done with it, simples.

    All I know is that within 5 years he will be at a different club while the Tigers still pay 2/3 of his salary.

    they forced out so many players due to salary cap, dramas - yet sign a kid that no one has heard of to a deal that makes him one of the highest paid players in the side...
