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?).

Can’t disagree with anyone in the top 10, some unlucky players missed out for me like Radley, JFH, Matterson and Luke Brooks.

One thing I wanna bring up is the signing of Keary by the Roosters. He now is in my mind the best half in the game has 3 premierships and a Churchill medal to go with it. Not comparing their skillset but this to me has to be close to the Dogs losing Thurston to the Cowboys.

The top 50 NRL players of 2019: 10-1

I think the brain snaps JWH is part of what makes him so good. As a coach you just have to accept he might take his aggression to far sometimes.

The top 50 NRL players of 2019: 40-31

Cronk is a big loss clearly. But keary taking the reigns with flannagan coming in isn’t the worst result.

Hopefully for the roosters sake next yr it’s just Cronk and tetevano who are not there for next yr. The year after will be a lot more challenging

Celebrating NRL history and what's still to come

I think the 3 clubs to make a run next yr would be Canberra I’ll have some faith, Panthers I like Cleary running the show and the Sharks winning some games they should have this yr and being a tough team to beat. With the Roosters and storm being up there to but I am not sure either can win it again.

Celebrating NRL history and what's still to come

Yeah agree for sure those seem to be the 4 keys with a mix of luck as well.

I think the Raiders should start as faves for next yr IMO new 7 is a concern but if they keep Bateman they should be hungry and ready to go one better. But there is always someone ready to shock everyone, I mean who saw the Raiders in the gf to begin with.

I don’t mind the Panthers chances have a 7 with 5 origin games so I think they will improve a bit for mine.

Celebrating NRL history and what's still to come

Yeah atm looking at it there are just average or below average with Canberra, Roosters, Storm and maybe souths depending on what Surgess does.
But really the Panthers could get the jump on everyone the way it is atm. Giving Cleary the keys decent pack they could be a danger. IMO Canberra is in a wide open window currently and if they don’t take advantage it could take a long time for them to get back into a premiership window.

Celebrating NRL history and what's still to come

I really do think the comp is wide open next year, maybe because I don’t atm see an outstanding team and can’t see the roosters doing a 3 peat.

Storm won in 12 and 17. Before that was the titles that were stripped? Unless I made a mistake.

Celebrating NRL history and what's still to come

Not the part of the article I thought anyone would focus on tbh.

It still says Eastern Suburbs on the license and I one day hope that they decide to change the marketing decision and go back to Easts but I won’t hold my breath.

Celebrating NRL history and what's still to come

I’m not sure I agree with that Soliola has the duty of care not to hit Keary in the legs. It has been a penalty all year in my eyes.

The worst call in grand final history

I honestly didn’t know about the rule. I wonder how many people did.

But every clubs doing it so I think make the rule change and move on its just such a rare thing don’t think it needs to deep of thought.

The NRL knew the risks for years about on-field trainers and did nothing

Also there is or was no sense of shame as a chookies fan! Bit insulting really.

Did you feel shame in 04?

The worst call in grand final history

Its a quick rule change, give it to the Raiders in that situation and move on.

Keary should have got the penalty anyway.

The NRL knew the risks for years about on-field trainers and did nothing

The trainer thing its an easy rule change thats it do it move on. I still cant understand why Keary having his legs taken after he kicked didn’t get a penalty.

Raiders attack just couldn’t find a way they had a heap of chances.

The worst call in grand final history

Great win for the Roosters! Very proud of the club. The D was amazing.

Congrats to Canberra great year and will be back better next year I feel.

The Trainer thing its a simple rule change and just move on really.

Six talking points from the NRL grand final 2019

We {the roosters had one call go our way) i can live with it

Roosters go back-to-back at 2019 NRL Grand Final

I love the rooster so much! so good!

CONGRATS to the raiders on a historic season.

YESSSSSSSS Roooosters!

Roosters go back-to-back at 2019 NRL Grand Final

Yeah am trying to really appreciate the team the Roosters have at the moment.

Early 2000s were pretty good for a young Roosters fan but I did just come to expect success.

Finals: A chance to make history

Was on the podcast he does. Always a good listen if you wanna feel a bit of anger at the gym

Big name? Big game? Fine

The argument put forward by the likes of Burgess, Gould and to a lesser extent Andrew Johns make me question their actual knowledge of the game. I heard Gould say yesterday what did it really matter if Vinivalu’s fingers touched the touch line when we can have a grand stand finish?
I mean come on, why have any rules?

Burgess and Jwh’s records are not a good look and they both deserve the extra attention that they are given by the MRC in my opinion. If Burgess didn’t wanna miss a week leave the hair alone its easy, its not a split second decision like a player falling into a high shot.

Big name? Big game? Fine

Much better career then I thought he had for some reason. Even played origin!

Still his career is pretty easily defined by one 20 meter run.

Finals: A chance to make history

I wasn’t around for the 69 GF but sounds like an amazing story.

Finals: A chance to make history

I remember the week after and all the talk of flying Lockyer down in a helicopter. What a week!

The Broncos were dominate when I was falling in love with the game and as much as I hated them my god they were good to watch.

Finals: A chance to make history

Gould is just tiring. I go for the Roosters but JWH had to miss the prelim there was no way round it.

Is Gould that smart when it comes to the game of modern rugby league? He won 2 premierships yrs ago, have we just been duped by him and channel 9 telling all of us how smart he is.

'Kangaroo court': Burgess to face NRL after judiciary criticism

Burgess I feel is struggling with not being the biggest baddest forward in the game. I think a few guys have gone past him and guys can now flatten him which a few yrs ago wasn’t happening.

'Kangaroo court': Burgess to face NRL after judiciary criticism

Fair point.

I just feel like Gould has said more inflammatory things about refs or the games leadership.
