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?).

Fair enough I must admit watching Cowboy games weren’t at the top of my list.

The 2019 NRL report card: The bottom eight

Wow he seems way to good to be a winger to me.

I haven’t seen him enough so maybe not in the halves but looked pretty good at 1

Where does Drinkwater play next yr? He play in the halves and what becomes of Clifford if he does?

The 2019 NRL report card: The bottom eight

I get what you are saying but I disagree whats the point of having the team of the decade if you are just gonna pick great players that they never played or had limited time in. May as well just say these are the 13 best players backs and forwards of the last 10 yrs.

Revealing The Roar's NRL team of the decade for the 2010s

Morris was at the Dragons till 2014 so a decent bit of the decade.
I’m not sure Morris did fall of that much at the Dogs I mean 34 tries from 68 games is ok but gotta remember how poor they were in attack for the yrs he was there, still over 150 tries, 2 premierships, how ever many internationals and origins his the decades best winger.

His ahead of RTS for me who played about a yr maybe 2 on the wing in his career.

Revealing The Roar's NRL team of the decade for the 2010s

I have got Morris well in front of RTS. RTS cleary brilliant but his a 1 and Morris has been the winger of the decade IMO. Also feel Hodges is unlucky to miss out to Lyon but I can live with it.

JWH belongs in front of either Fifita or Graham his been an enforcer and leader for 3 premiership winning teams and is a key to the Roosters success. Finally Gallen if he cant play 13 he shouldn’t be in the team put him on the bench for Parker fine but he has never play 2nd row to my knowledge so shouldn’t get a 2nd rower spot of the decade.

He may stay but the Broncos shouldn’t IMO be bidding against Souths after Souths stuffed up.

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

Yes it is. Souths are the ones who signed both of them to long term contracts they took the risk they lost the reward.

How is it fair that Souths bad management and being saved by the NRL is fair on the Broncos who now have to fight another big club to keep David Fifita?

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

I can respect that and I wouldn’t be shocked if the Warriors for example offered him 800k to bring him back to NZ as it was but what a team is willing to offer and what the players actual value is, thats the big issue especially when a club becomes desperate.

But this is the issue with notional values being put on players.

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

I’m not a huge fan of the notional value thing cause to me Manu isn’t worth 800k and thats the biggest issue its so opinion based and subjective. To me Manu is worth probably 600k max but if other clubs offer 800k then we all have issues.

The Burgess thing was a while ago so I dont’ remember what Souths offered first off and what the NRL said he was actually worth.

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

What evidence is there that Souths have been disadvantaged?

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

Still hilarious you think that Morris and Hall are on 500k each! 2 30 yr old wingers I mean come on!

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

His name is Semi not Sami.

That pack to me isn’t winning any comps soon unless they have the likes of Thurston telling them where to run and go, which is rare and hard to find.

Cook in the last 2 yrs has shown he can own a game if his pack is dominate but the Raiders and Roosters have shown you slow the pack down you slow Cook down.

Also Tupou has played Origin, played for his country and won 3 comps so doing a lot better then average.

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

I don’t think Semi is gonna win many games for a team if his forwards aren’t going forward or holding the middle without 2 of the Burgesses I struggle to see how they beat the very good teams.

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

And the Eels won how many GFs with Semi? Or played in how many finals?

Semi on half: Radradra reportedly eyeing cut-price NRL return

Are we talking best regular season team that went on to win the GF or the best GF team performance.

If we are talking best regular season team of the decade then I think it is the 17 Storm by a fair distance. If we are talking best GF performance then it opens it up a fair bit.

Which NRL premiership side was the best this decade?

Oh ok so not facts?

How sad for the Rabbit fans who just cannot stop complaining and whining. Just more denial and misdirection for a sad club stuck in the 60s

Roosters withdraw Latrell offer

Morris has said he got better offers from the Super League. He has said he basically signed for minimum. I would love to see these so called sources. Hooper guesses aren’t fact just FYI just like souths making a claim about Chricton pay packets arent facts.

Roosters withdraw Latrell offer

Its hilarious you think the Roosters are paying two 30 yr old wingers 500k each!

Roosters withdraw Latrell offer

It is for sure possible, he is gifted enough no doubt would need to improve his ball playing as well but could make the transition for sure.

If he does go to the Dogs, Cows or Tigers I wonder what their coaching staff can do to keep him motivated that Robinson can’t. He fades now in a great culture for him with great players around him I worry how he handles being the main man if they are losing

Latrell doesn't warrant superstar money

I think its a big call to make him a fullback he gets gassed playing in the centers. It would take a heap of fitness work to get him to a level where he could do what Nicoll-Klokstad did in the GF

Latrell doesn't warrant superstar money

Fully support the Roosters decision, Mitchell isn’t worth a million dollars in my opinion but good luck to him see how good he goes without Keary and Teddy. Bring on Billy Smith!

Roosters withdraw Latrell offer

All very good points and I totally agree.

Paul Green is really failing with his coaching of Taumalolo

Who would you rather? Jake Trbojevic or Jason Taumalolo

I agree I think Manly are perhaps overpaying Jake T because of his brother. But not a bad problem to have I guess

Who would you rather? Jake Trbojevic or Jason Taumalolo

You make a good point the cowboy forwards are all pretty similar and one dimensional besides Asiata which was ok when they had Thurston but now they need some variety.
