What now for the Lakers?

This season has not been a good one for the Lakers, and in the last few days it has gone even further downhill with Magic Johnson stepping down and Luke Walton being fired and going to the Kings (why was Dave Joerger fired?).

That may all be the case but to me this seems similar to the Klemmer deal which I also didn’t like. Clubs cant be talking to players before their final year and I think that in the Klemmer and Roberts cases this rule was ignored and forced their respective clubs to release them.

Wayne Bennett lied to us, signed James Roberts and then got pants'd by the Eels on Friday night

I agree Roberts would have known he had another contract lined up but to me this is very similar to the Klemmer deal that the knights and its not a good look Bennett had some interesting quotes I thought saying the time they took to make a decision on what they wanted to do as well as saying the reason for misleading the media was because they wanted to talk to James with no pressure which is fair but also they aren’t allowed to.

I wonder if Bennett in Roberts ear contributed to how Roberts played in his last few games.

And its official Shane Richardson doesn’t run Souths, Bennett does.

I can’t see how Souths have followed the rules. Roberts had 2 yrs or so so left on his deal didn’t have permission to talk to other clubs and signed with Souths 2 minutes after being released. How were Souths allowed to have contact with Roberts?

Broncos should be furious and Greenburg should do his job. Hey maybe someone should start talking to Ponga now if thats within the rules now

Wayne Bennett lied to us, signed James Roberts and then got pants'd by the Eels on Friday night

Roberts had 2 yrs to go on his deal I believe? Was released by his club and 2 minutes later has signed a new deal? How is this allowed?

Souths or anyone aren’t allowed to be talking to him this is basically the same as the Klemmer deal to the knights and the NRL can’t just sit and watch.

What stops the Tigers or Dogs talking to Ponga now?

James Roberts signs with Rabbitohs after being released by Broncos

Morris and Hall are both mid 30 yr old wingers? You think anyone wants them for 500k a yr? Crichton for a mil that figure comes from Souths and the media I will ignore that.
No significant loss? The Roosters lost a host of players in 2012 and they were also a bad team at the time. Last cpl of years they have lost the likes of Pearce, SKD, Guerra, Napa, Moa, RTS, Jennings, Maloney, and a bunch of others.

Matty Johns guesses aren’t evidence. They are thought bubbles for what a player might be worth on the open market. They weren’t on the open market meaning the Roosters don’t have to pay them anything like what Matty Johns might wanna say.

15 other club supporters can say what they want its not evidence.

I can say the 14 GF the NRL had objective and allowing Crowe to ring the bell and play the Souths song before the game proves it! Is that evidence?

Trent Robinson is one of the great coaches of the modern era

Proof, evidence, fair trial something you bang on about all the time.

A roster is obviously important no one is gonna argue that it isn’t but plenty of good teams have struggled with the wrong coach.

Brown at the Dragons? McGuire after the 14 season, Green with the Cowboys recently? Brian Smith with the Roosters before Robinson took over.

Trent Robinson is one of the great coaches of the modern era

Just an insult to everyone in the game. Disgusting that this now going to be seen by everyone in the country.

If the NRL do happen to lose this case I think Greenberg should have De Belin undertake a 12 to 14 week full time education program classes on Thursday to Sunday, the game has failed him and the NRL should rectify it as soon as possible.

'He wasn't educated': De Belin's lawyers play the blame game

Bit harsh on the Burgess twins they are very good international footballers. Walker to me is a top 3 or 4 five eighth in the comp and Reynolds might be the same for the 7 maybe not rep regulars but very good.

Roosters have bought and bought well like a lot of teams but they can claim plenty of players developed as well.

Roosters and Storm confirm their favouritism, while the Bulldogs remain a mystery

Brett Morris a marquee player? Please.

So as a Souths fan you will just ignore Cook, Gagai, Burgess twins, Reynolds and Walker?

Roosters and Storm confirm their favouritism, while the Bulldogs remain a mystery

You make a good point. Lebron has a few questions to answer himself I think the big one is what is his main motivation at the moment basketball or making space jam 2?
For such a big organisation they have been run horribly

What now for the Lakers?

How?

The NRL don’t employ him. Union has decided he has breached his contract thats not persecution

The NRL has allowed worse than Folau to play

Im not sure I agree with that but sorta besides the point. The Nrl has decided that he has doesn’t mean they are punishing him though he doesn’t have a protected right to play league

The NRL has allowed worse than Folau to play

I think having the one it can be much more easily accepted. I can accept Lockyer and Johns being in the same group or Tallis and Beetson but then having 2 for me just diminishes one groups achievements in a way

Should Greg Inglis be made an Immortal?

I can understand that for sure Richmond is a guy that only die hards know but he still contributed to the game. Much like Inglis did as did Lockyer and I dont think we need a step above for players that subjectively some might think are better

Should Greg Inglis be made an Immortal?

I agree. They need to make the hall of fame a much bigger deal and a much larger celebration. I think scrap the immortal idea and just pump up the hall of fame idea up. Open it to the likes of Laurie Nicholls, Ronnie Palmer, Wayne Bennett and the likes of Bill Harrigan really celebrate the game as a whole not just the elite 1%

Should Greg Inglis be made an Immortal?

Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequence.

The NRL has allowed worse than Folau to play

I wonder if the NRL should just scrap the immortals now that they have it. I mean why is Inglis’s career most likely going to be deemed lesser than Meniga’s or Lockyer lesser than Johns. The NBA wouldn’t do that.

Slightly devalues the Hall of fame really

Should Greg Inglis be made an Immortal?

Not an immortal to me, top 3 Aboriginal player of all time behind Thurston and Beetson.

This current generation for me only Smith is making it as an immortal.

Should Greg Inglis be made an Immortal?

Sad to see a champion player not able to go out on their own terms but it happens.

Congrats to Greg, Makes my best team I have ever seen in the centers.

Greg Inglis announces immediate retirement from NRL

You Bang on about evidence and proper procedure until it doesn’t suit you?

Greg Inglis announces immediate retirement from NRL

I agree coaches need time to show their wears and skills which is why I gave the likes of Dean Pay and Seibold a big pass they haven’t had time to mold the team to what they want.

But the likes of Arthur, McGreagor Brown in particular have had that time and to me they have been found wanting.

Are we running out of coaches?

How do you think Cleary is coming along? I haven’t seen much improvement and could argue that he has actually gone backwards.

Are we running out of coaches?

It will be interesting to see how the Storm do once Bellamy does decide to move on. Bennett is close to moving on you would think and I am gonna assume Jason Demitrou is up next? Souths fans might know more?

Are we running out of coaches?

Brown had a lot of work to do and his rebuilt it well but I disagree. Bellamy is known for turning players around, Bennett has a history of producing great players through a youth system and Robinson has had a pretty good run as well. Brown to me has failed to produce any promising juniors in over 4 yrs or so.

Are we running out of coaches?

I did say while Hasler has had a up and down start so far with Manly he has a much better record then other names and really there are few coaches in the game who have his record I did include that.

The Cleary thing I have seen a few times. Our own Tim Gore called him the best coach in the NRL last year https://www.theroar.com.au/2018/04/12/ivan-cleary-and-his-bus-full-of-feral-tigers/.

Brown won in England and did well but his had Newcastle for 4 yrs I think now? His developed no one to my mind his just bought top players for sure but they still are 1 and 4 after all those home games to start the year.
