    Problem is Sticky and Don Furner, Jr. (Raiders CEO) are besties so nothing will happen to him.

    Truth is usually somewhere in the middle.. but it is starting to look bad on the Raiders.

    I suspect SOO counts as one game but I'm not 100%

    Given that he isn't allowed to play SOO, logic says that it has to count as a 'missed game' but sometimes logic can be wrong

    Unlike say Premier League and Champions League/International competition, NRL suspensions count for both club games and origin.

    Process has been abused in the past
    Queensland once named TBA as their winger.
    Lote Tuqiri was named for the Broncos the week before origin, a game he missed through suspension, and then miraculously got a late call up to the origin once he hadn't played for the Broncos. Nice to get a 1 game suspension that results in you missing a game you weren't eligible to play in anyway.

    If Roosters played in R13, then the equivalent would be them naming Crichton next week, and him playing for Origin afterwards.

    That loophole got closed, but there is still a bit of a gray area.

    Its a bit silly if a 2 game suspension causes Crichton to miss 1 game for the Roosters, and a 2 game suspension causes Radley to miss 2.

    It’s a real weird one. James “Baldy” Hooper released an article yesterday seeming to quote word for word, long story short; Williams agent contacting other teams in Sydney for a move because Williams wanted to enjoy the “full aussie experience” closer to the beaches. There was a bunch of other damning stuff that Hooper claimed Williams had done, but we will never know the truth.

    From an outside looking in, it appears the coach has really lost the dressing room and it won’t be the players the coach that gets sacked.

    It was all bristling and bubbling up so nicely for the Raiders before this in the previous year or two.

    The negative Broncos articles went quiet as soon as we beat the Roosters. They will come out of hte woodworks again tomorrow when we get flogged tonight.

    Its a bit chicken and the egg though

    Are players unhappy because they are losing. or are the team losing because the players are unhappy.

    re the Raiders this may not be an issue although it is with Tapine's wahine but maybe the forwards because of the depth are maybe pissed off with the shit house minutes they get & sometimes some aren't in the 17. The problem too much forward depth.

    Did everyone hear that audio snippet of Ricky Stuart absolutely losing it in the sheds ? No way to verify when it was dated, but I heard it just last week.

    Didn’t realise Kikau had gotten to the sub 500k realm.

    Risky but he can go boom at any time

    This is a guy who couldn’t make the Panthers 17 a month ago.

    Not being able to make the 17 is no indicator of his ability. He has Luai and Cleary in front of him.

    CNK played reserve grade for an entire year because he was behind RTS but turned out to be a great fullback.

    Great players can come through teams which just don't have room for them. Thurston wasn't a regular player for the Dogs etc
