It’s zero tolerance..cant be any clearer.

The same player was in front of the board less than 12 months ago for misconduct.

Fans should revolt if marquis players are given (I have complete faith that they wont) preferentials.

The NRL ought to be supporting clubs who sack players for misconduct by not allowing them to be picked up immediately by preying clubs..anywhere.

NRL players union vs Newcastle 'sledgehammer' fines

Never at any stage said that Saffiti did anything worthy of a police charge..all I’ve said is that if he hadnt have been on the turps for 12 hours,leading to him being in a place with heavily clouded judgement and making fateful decisions, the sliding door wouldnt have opened..do you really think the club slapped him with such a fine for ‘trying to help someone’ ? It’s a tip toe thru the BS…and you seem to have picked some up on your shoe.
Support the club 100% on this..this kind of behaviour has gone on for far too long..time to start deregistering.

Will Phil Gardner's tactical nuclear strike keep the Knights in line?

No club has ever fined an innocent player $50k..so work backwards from that premise…
Its not about being out at 1:30..it’s about 12 hours of public binge drinking that lead to a potential contract termination incident..
Wife and son is an illustration of the thoughtlessness and recklessness..his loss of income from this for this season and any future even minor indiscretion will be the end of him here which cruelly damages the lives of the true ‘innocent bystanders’ ..his family..
Not contradicting the police,it was the club statement that used the term ‘diffusing’..clearly the club is attempting to attract some sympathy for the player..
Well,what do you think ‘innocent’ means in the context of 2 league players pushing and shoving in the street ? Again,to me it’s the clubs flowery language garnishing public mitigation for the dumb predicament he got himself in..
Coach Brown was reportedly furious as were other board members on hearing this,so wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Moga marched..

Firstly the incident occurred at the 12 th hour of J. Safs farewell bender to Yates..most of the others had the sense to go home long before..a rep.of the club at his 3rd pub of the day/night..bending.What club would turn a blind eye to that ?

Secondly,Saffiti (the one with the wife and young son ) and Cordener were wobbling outside that pub at 1:30 a:m because they had just been thrown out by security for pushing and shoving inside.This is where he just had to get in a cab,respect the game,the club and his income..but nah..

He attempts ‘to diffuse a situation’ the same situation he’d just been kicked out for ?..why didnt security just separate them and throw Cordener out if Saf. was blameless..after all hes the local identity here..’innocent bystanders’ is clubspeak for ‘gathered mob’, and where theyve tried to temper the incident.

The fine is justified (25k suspended) and fair,the player ‘very remorseful’..fortunate his contract wasnt torn up in the environment the game is currently in..I wouldnt blink an eyelid if Moga gets Newie ‘nuked’..kudos to the club..we should be thru playing with these guys..

Clearly the punt by voicemail tells us the Broncos weren’t..and we’ve done Newcastle to death so not going there,suffice to say they were far from satisfied with their bang for ‘master’ coach buck.

Who will emerge the beneficiary of the Seibold-Bennett swap?

No Bennett, no Maguire, no Sims…kinda don’t mind that club anymore..

The great NRL coach-off

Coach Brown made it pretty clear that he wanted more strength in the outside backs and further hardness in the front row..well he chased and got one of the best young prospects for the former and two rep junk yard dogs for the latter vacancy..

Knights fans wont be getting ahead of themselves though..they only won something like 4 of their last 16 games in ’18….inc. 2 against spooners Parra and 1 against the Titans..dont know if that was totally acceptable,certainly not this season..

The Newcastle Knights are rebuilt

Have you watched the video ?
Took him front on at ball level..McGuire wasn’t anywhere near his back..you haven’t had a clue on this incident from the outset..
Watch it..it definitely is a contact drill…where’s the dog shot ?

..your names ..eagle ? How apt is that..a true bird brain..who gives Rothfield..what was it ? Cred ?
Coaches and CEOs refuse to have anything to do with him because he INVENTS stories..if you’d been around a little longer than yesterday surely you’d know that..not hard to see what you’re doing wrong…

2018 in review: Rugby league

In Maguires Wiki profile 2016 it mentions Maguire and Funaki being separated at training..you owe Josh an apology,Reg..out with it..

using Buzz Rothfield as a source..no one has ever given themselves a bigger mother of all upper cuts than that..wait,is this humour ?

2018 in review: Rugby league

Fusitua is one of the best corner post ball planters in the game..but he just wont roll his sleeves up and cart/heart the ball up.
Ferguson was the best club winger in ’18 by a large space..5000 metres run,500 cart ups,840m on kick returns and a lazy 18 tries to top it off…JAC and Futs dont have anywhere near that workload or team value..

Just as SJ engineered most of Fusituas tries..Cody Walker drove in most of Robert Jennings’ 18 or so down that left..genuine best year ever for the gutsiest little bloke with or without the ball in the NRL.

The 2018 NRL team of the year

Josh has 17 international appearances,8 for Australia..Hess still zero best he could do…‘nailed down a first grade starting spot ‘ ..right now,he’s In Dave Taylor territory..

You haven’t got an iota of a clue..appallingly ignorant..

Dangerously competent: NRL must de-register Sharks CEO Barry Russell for being too professional

The reality is the Sharks aren’t broke..nor have they been backed into any corner..
In fact now that Flanagan has gone and the NRL have informed the club that they’re satisfied with their financial situation (catch up mate)..the sponsors will come,give it some time to settle,the tough but right decisions have definitely been made by the club.

Dangerously competent: NRL must de-register Sharks CEO Barry Russell for being too professional

Barry Russell didn’t do this for Barry Russell..nothing to do whether he had it in for him..it’s stage 1 of the club cleansing itself with 2020 being the start of a new period in the clubs history..support the process, fully hopefully the fans can read a little deeper into what’s happening and get behind him..

Dangerously competent: NRL must de-register Sharks CEO Barry Russell for being too professional

But theyre not clear rules..Greenberg gave Flanagan permission to negotiate his contract extension whilst suspended !
Which coach signs anything without talking to his office and discussing the playing squad ?

But theres more to it than just this…Russell had to know what he was doing when he handed over so much for NRL perusal.

Don’t blame the NRL for your club’s bad deeds

I’m going against the grain with Mitchell Moses and would like the coach to have a little more belief and give him another chance..as for young talent Parra have a couple of hot 5/8’s who’ll get their chance this year..really doubt that Liddle and current NZ hooker Smith would be cheaper than Segeyaro,who is,admittedly not at his peak but still sharp and whacking hard..Fergo in,Paulo in,S.Lane in,Manu May back..still a bit thin in the three quarters..

Why the Dragons signing Corey Norman is a mistake

Parra need a fullback..direct swap and Segeyaro with the change,would’ve soothed some itches..

Why the Dragons signing Corey Norman is a mistake

There are 7 locals in that side listed above : Watson Ross Levi Fitz. Barnett Safiti and Sione…

Brown needs to be black and white about Newcastle's finals prospects

Dragons now have the money to buy Corey Norman…consider it a favour..

Brown needs to be black and white about Newcastle's finals prospects

Well, most importantly the players think he can coach.
Who would want to play under a coach with 3 wooden spoons going into 2018 ?..noone…exceptPonga,Pearce,Guerra,EsseEse’ese,Moga,Heighington,Griffin,Watson and Lillyman..then,this years mob of good quality signings..players are lining up to be coached by him..
Don’t know exactly what you want him to say to the press..he has been quoted saying that they’re ‘aiming high’.
Preferably,I’d just like him to have his team concentrate on every set and up for every game,and the rest will take care of itself..

Brown needs to be black and white about Newcastle's finals prospects

Look at where England scored their tries in the recently concluded Test series against New Zealand (the highlights will do ). Bennett clearly targets Manu in defence and score plenty,this is where he needs to get lots better..

Who would you rather: Latrell Mitchell or Joseph Manu?

Sure,but the only center who is in the same stratosphere as Mitchell right now is Inglis..so to me it seemed that you were basically asking who is the best center in the game and who is the second best..
If it’s about Rooster retention,as you’ve alluded to later..there’s only one Mitchell..

Who would you rather: Latrell Mitchell or Joseph Manu?

Is the question ‘ who would you take .’ as in next year,in your team ?
