Brad Arthur and Ricky Stuart should be most under pump

The NRL coaches under pressure in 2019

Just because a certain geographic area doesn’t attract high corporate dollars as other areas may do, or has lower game attendances doesn’t mean that team has no support or doesn’t add value to the game. Many Sydney teams have tens of thousands of supporters all over the country and in other regions. For example Manly are very well supported in New Zealand and Brisbane. Similatly Souths and Dragons would have huge support out side of redfern or kogarah. These teams and supporters add to the NRL and the games profitability in other ways such as adding value to commercial tv rights or paying for foxtel subscriptions and buying merchandise etc. Getting rid of well established iconic brands and disenfranchising these fans for the wrong reasons just to follow some ideological idea of a national comp with one or two teams per capital city is fraught with danger and can lead to unintended consequences and greater damage than some may think.

Joey and Freddie are right: There are too many teams in Sydney

Cenral coast dont need a team. If they like footy they have a choice already between Manly and Newcastle. Why have 3 teams within less than 200km of distance if we are talking about expanding the game nationally as the NRL is supposed to stand for?

The sooner we get rid of those two useless and so called leaders of our game the better. Ie Greenburger and that nutty politician. WTF.

Absolute rubbish too many sydney teams. Its the heartland of the game. This game would go backwards without all these iconic Sydney teams

If he did that he really would be a mug.

Can the Roosters really go back-to-back in 2019?

Just like the refereeing debacles it will be the inconsistencies of applying these rules that cause the most damage to the game. Certain players will cop it in the neck whilst others will continue to be protected species.

NRL players union vs Newcastle 'sledgehammer' fines

Haha Good one.

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

And Im talking about the Saifti case

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

There are not enough detailed facts released about this story to make a judgement either way. But going by the scant information available the punishment seems over the top.

Nothing wrong with this manly side even Sir Des himself stated it was a “very good roster ” before he took the job. You can’t look at last year and make your judgements simply on that. We had heaps of injuries, disharmony with some troublesome players, and a crap rookie coach. With a little luck and a smart coach things can improve greatly. Remember this same roster finished 6th the year before.

Do we have a team called the rats yet?
After all he is called a piper.

This manly side has a much better playing roster than what the dogs had in 2012 and prior.

The squad is good enough. But It all comes down to injuries and referee calls in the end.

Des does his best flying under the radar

When did Cronk sign with the Cowboys?

Hahaha but so true.

Hasler managed to turn the bulldogs around and get them into the GF in his first year there in 2012 so you never know what could be possible.

Cowboys definite top8 with their strong pack plus barber

I think Madge will fire up the tigers from their slumber and if Ricky doesn’t get the raiders into the finals he should resign and never coach again.

Looks like its totally destroyed any that max might have had.

The experts are kidding themselves then. I have been going to brookie for decades and crowd numbers are less than 1/3 of what they used to be back in 80s and 90s. This is not limited to brookie mind you.

And Wayne would be correct in saying that!
