I like Mick Molloy, funny guy. Way better than the last few crap people they’ve had on it. Lawrence Mooney was the worst.
Mooney was shocking
Bad impression after bad impression
I stopped listening to Triple M because of him

Still not sure on Mick and MG
Find MG and Cat a bit self righteous and 'moany' despite leading very privilaged lifestyles

Someone's gotta call out the Bulldogs purchases .
Is this how it works ( City Ford allegedly did this )
Perhaps , you're grandmother will now magically receive brand new Mercedes , from an anonymous source ?
Who then gets repatriated
FAT Gus , knows how to play the game .
The SOONER Clubs have to make public their Cap payments the better .
THEN , we can all call bullsheeet

Not sure , but before Cap increase had $160K per player left .
What would that young Bronco 5/8 be worth ?
The Newcastle winger ?
The Penrith Prop ?
Some in the future like Critter , but FMD .
How ?

I noticed that was in July, which was months before the NRL had (and still) not decided on a final cap value….

Crichton is for 2024, same would be for Young and Leniu if they get them. Young Broncos 5/8 probably isn't even top 30. Isn't he 18?

Even so, compare:

Dogs 4.75m
Pangai 925k
Crichton 825k
Mahoney 600k
Kikau 800k
Fox 550k
Burton 750k
Young? 400k ish?

Melbourne 5.975m
Munster 1.1m
Grant 1m
Hughes 900k
Papi 900k
Nas 625k
Coates 450k
Hogarth 500k
Welch 500k?

Roosters 4.5m
Teddy 1.1
Smith 800k
Keary 850k
Manu 700k
Collins 550k
Walker 500k?

Sharks 3.25m
Finucane 750k
Cam 500k
Nicho 600k
Ramien 500k?
Brailey 500k
Moylan 400k

Looking at these alone, the dogs aren't anywhere near out of the ball park to other sides that spend big on their top guys. Sharks come in shorter, but when you look at the rest of our squad vs the dogs or storm, you'll see why we have spent less up top.
