What did he say was not 100% correct?

Basically what he is saying is that the salary cap shouldn't be in place, as the team he supports is the only team in a massive league crazy city.
Why not just have the Broncos play with themselves every week@Oz Sport Mad wrote:
I've clearly said that it should be in place??
Merely that the NRL should continue to grant exceptions for the teams that actually add value to the comp.
Anyway, I'm not even convinced that you are even McFuck-knuckle himself.

Teams like the Broncos, Roosters and Souths and co all have powerful rich backers who can pay what ever player what ever they want. They have such an advantage over other sides, its crazy how this is seen as fair.
This isnt bronco bashing, but the NRL really puts them in a position to put the best roster in the league together.
1 Team town.
All the friday night free to air games - which means companies are more inclined to put in agreements with them because they will get regular exposure etc etc.
They might as well scrap the salary cap if they are going to continue with the third party payments and all a team like the raiders (who are prob the richest club in the league) - pay players what ever the hell they want.
I have been told by a mad Souths supporter that Surgess is on $1.5m a season. Apparently, there is unrest from a few of the players because of this and that they accepted less to stay with Souths. Madge and Rusty aren't very popular atm!@Krump wrote:
The issue it that they are given a nominal value by the NRL and that value has to go on the cap. According to the NRL Burgess is only worth 600k so thats all souffs have to pay him in the cap. If the NRL used his real value theres no way they could get him under the cap and he'd have no choice but to go elsewhere.
