    LOL true.

      BB just clutching at straws on that one and has been for a while.
      We had big rampaging Latrell as our left centre...on our "lethal left side".
      We had muscular and tough Cronk at 7.
      We had muscular and tough Cordner at 11.
      We had muscular and tough Friend at 9.
      Now in their places we have rookies.

      And, other teams are now bigger.
      Panthers have a giant and muscular 7 who kicks goals from the sideline, and we have great trouble tackling.
      Panthers 6 is "too big, too strong, too fast" for our rookie halves.
      Panthers pack is bigger than ours.
      Even in b2b we couldn't tackle Kikau.
      Crichton, big centre, other big strong Islander boys.
      Souths now have big rampaging Latrell.
      Higher than us on the ladder.
      Etc.

        Is there a new philosophy at the Roosters and for some reason we need some assholes ?

            So, in summary, you're suggesting:

            Our centres - Manu, JMoz and Suaalii - are too small and should be replaced;
            Walker (and presumably Keary) are too small and should be replaced;
            Tupouniua, Chrichton, Radley are too small and should be replaced;
            Etc etc
            But signing a reject from the wooden spooners who is on $800k and has links with the criminal underworld is a great idea and will compensate for these tiny tots we have in our side.

            OK....

              Those muscular and tough three blokes you mentioned along with Aubo who was in the same vein were all great defenders and each possessed incredible determination and will to win which I think we are missing more than actual physical size.
              I think with the new rules we are seeing lighter more skilful players coming back into the game which is a good thing .
              Cleary kicked us off the park the other night which was more to do with what's between his ears rather than his physicality.
              I'll agree we are missing latrell and the damage he could do , how I yearn for those blindside raids with Keary, Cords, latrell and Toops with Teddy chiming in.

                Do we want a team of gentlemen, bounce straight up and never lie down ones?
                A team of angels?
                Or do we want to win games?
                Maybe as we slide down the ladder the thinking re Pangai will change.
                Id rather lose the game & walk off with dignity than lie down to get penalties for a victory. In any event playing tough & true will win you more than you lose.

                While i agree with Bondi Boy that getting Pangai should be considered, i certainly don't think its because our forwards need size-not by a longshot. I think his offloads would be a massive asset....& with players like Walker,Keary and Radley who love backing up it could add a new dimension to the attack.

                I really think the Roosters & Storm are the only club that can get the best out of him. He will be a disaster surrounded by the non-triers at the Tigers.If he is keen to come, the price is right & Robbo thinks he can improve him as a player & person then roll the dice!

                  This guy is such a hopeless defender , and he goes MIA in so many games , he is hardly worth the risk.
                  IF the Roosters we to consider him, I'd say sign him for one year, with the minimum wage out of our pocket, and get the Broncos to subsidise the rest.
                  If that doesn't suit him , tell him go elsewhere.
                  Then , if he joins us and performs, happy days - if not , just cut him like the Broncos have.
                  If the team running dead last doesn't want him anymore, he needs a huge turnaround, and he is a big risk.

                    We could change his ways.
                    Our team is small, watch next time they run out.
                    We need his size.
                    Got to give it to you Bondi Boy you are persistent - like an on vinyl record that get caught on a scratch!

                    Seriously got to give you credit for just unemotionally continuing on with your reasoning for your arguments after someone calls you an idiot or a flog etc. 99% of the rest of us would degrade into name calling back - hats off.

                    we aren't small though I disagree - like to see some pack weight comparisons I'm sure we measure up middle of that pack at least.

                      I reckon we sign Ben Simmons. Needs a new club. Good defender and a great passing game for a big guy at 6’10”
                      ..it’ll be interesting to see

                        Yes, thank you for pointing out that obvious comparison between the two players. I wasn't doing a specific "comparative analysis" per se but was just throwing out a very short random comment (opinion) regarding who is available on the market and who I would personally pick out of the two. I'm sure a deep dive can be done at a later date if there is any credence to it.

How can we ever hope to be competitive with the way the refs and bunker are treating us? We may as well not turn up at all as we are getting players suspended for 5 matches at a time and forced to play lengthy periods of the game with no footy and 12 men.

                          We should start another comp. and make sure no crooks allowed in as administrators or refs. Buying players won’t fix the fact the game is ruined in its present form.
                          I agree there should be only 2 teams in it Easts & The Roosters. The Chookpen members can be the ref & bunker & we can win the comp every year, how exciting would that be.

                            He can play hooker instead of Manu.
