I will back Slater to be playing in the GF!!


I listen to triple M's app now. I have a HDD recorder so simply pause the tv for 15 seconds to align the vision with radio and the commentary is far superior. No Gould, no Fitler and none of the bias dribble they spew out every week. Tallis, Sailor and others make for enjoyable listening and funny at times.

Woohoo. Slater is playing. No excuses now.

Win or lose he gets to go out on his terms at least. Now cue the backlash

Hopefully this is a precedent for reviewing the shoulder charge rule. It was brought in to stop guys running out of the line and smashing guys head on with the shoulder and arm hard up against their body. Not what Slater was doing and other players have been rubbed for the same ridiculous ruling.

The Billy Slater judgement shortened the price of a Storm win heaps with the bookies.

The Roosters will be the first mob to start sooking.
Suck it up fella's.

Ah..oh course it was all Sosaia Feki's fault..Billy had no alternative then to shoulder charge him.....

Just like his good buddy Smith claimed a few years back when it was all Alex McKinnons fault...

Bring on the grand final ..I'm backing no penalties around the rucks and play the balls and very little enforcement of the 10 metre rule..

Yeah they'll sook along with the other anti-Storm brigade. Like clockwork they have the same whine each year. Melbourne may not win but they are there Slater included.

Ahhh yes, the biff. 6 weeks on the sideline nowadays . I think they followed the AFL's lead in cleaning up the game for families.

But yes, those stills show it was hardly a shoulder charge worthy of rubbing a player out for. Interestingly one of the 3 on the panel that decided Slater's fate was a former Roosters captain. Clearly has more sense than Fittler .

Yep the Roosters mascot has more sense than Fittler.

Well I will be rooting for the Storm this Sunday and if the Rooster's win, then I'll be will rooting for a title strip in the following years for salary cap issues!!

I hear they are chasing Munster. The rich boy's club are masters at buying other team's talent rather than developing their own.

Yes, buying a premiership rather than winning won. Sounds like Manly back in the 80s.

Exactly the same. Manly would probably still be doing it but I hear they have major financial issues compounded by the $500,000 fine they received today (with another $250,000 suspended in case of further breaches).

It's funny you mentioned the Roosters. An associate who knows a couple of former club members claims it is an issue there too.

I believe if you develop the talent, you should get special exemptions under the cap. The AFL are streets ahead in this area.

I canít stand the Roosters, back in the 70ís when Manly opened the cheque book the Roosters were the loudest shouters about the inequity of it all. Now what do we see? Remember Manly were not the first club to buy up all the talent, everyone convieniently forgets the mighty Dragons before them, they set the blue print. Talk about buying premierships! They certainly got bang for their buck.

Looking ominous early for the Storm. I said a few months back the Roosters were the team to beat.

Not sure how the Roosters are under the cap tbh. I've said it all year that something is up at that club...there's no way they can afford to sign all of those big name players.

Someone I know within the NRL reckons they are and said they were the year they exposed the Storm for breaches. We may never know. They are trying to get Munster too.

The resident troll will be along any moment. His team didn't do too well though.

Aside from that Melbourne have played themselves out out it so far. Munster got binned a few weeks back for the same. Silly stuff. Womble?

1. I'm not a Storm supporter.
2. The Bulldogs were caught salary cap cheating in 2002...long before the Storm were.
