He certainly did - I was the one that tackled Flanno in the leagues club that night, Gards and 2010 joined in...

And yes my what I put to Flanno is why is Robson there and not Murphy. His response was "he's not a talker".

Can't run without legs

Plenty of people don't like his extra curricular activities, there's definitely hate there for some.

I'm not one for cancel culture, but a lot more people laid on some pretty thick hate than say they don't hate him now

To start with wasn't Chad at Warriors in 2015? So it was actually Jeff Robson I assume who would have kept Todd out in 2015? Or Jack Bird?
jeff robson was our halfback in 2015 fella

Haha yes the bald older version my bad - same thing, same complaints. Prob even worse that it was old man Robbo keeping Todd out

I get them mixed up, sharks2010 wasn't exactly a Chad fan either , was thinking of that season we had both of the slow and go brothers on the books and on the field same game and everyone was debating who was worse. Think it was the 2013 semi against Manly LOL and we almost won

I was the one that pointed the Flange out who was just chilling having a cold one then the poor bastard got ambushed by you lot for question time lol

I apologised to him in the dunnies later but coach was never seen in the leagues club again

his 'handler' had to drag him away

yes looking back I think we all take his comment as a nice way of saying Murphy wasn't up to first grade and Flanno was probably justified in the end seeing how Murphy's career has panned out but I just found it humorous in light of him saying Chad isn't a big talker

he also said we were passionate fans - nice way of saying drunk scrubs and a pain in the ass **** off!

I'm loving the saltiness from other clubs fans after we signed Finucane. They were all so keen on him then all of a sudden oh no thanks, paying overs, 4 years too long. So good.

Yep it's great, I've had exactly that from a mate who was dead keen on him!

Thing is, if we're truly paying $2.1m like Riccio said, it averages out at 525k p.a. That's a great deal.

Isn’t it amazing a player all of the sudden goes from top notch to absolute dog**** with all these glaring weaknesses when he knocks your club back in favour of somewhere else hey? To be fair, it happens on this forum too.

Yeah have a Cowboys mate bragging about being in the box seat. Turned real quick when we signed him and said glad the Cowboys didn’t go the 4 years. I said yeah your recruitments been bang on lately, especially the figures thrown for their new halfback.

Remind him they have 6yrs left with Tomato and Payton worried about burning him out. I'd like to see how he goes in last few years.

Payton needs to worry about keeping his job and even getting close to lasting the 6 yrs. He needs to squeeze every minute he can out of him.

Yep but if he doesn't think JT13 will be able to give his best for a full 80 regularly it is an interesting conundrum when to play him.
Have been games that start slipping away when he comes off (both through him being off but also just through more time passing) and commentators like to carry on about you've got to get him back out there before the game is out of reach but not taking into account managing his workload and interchanges. When he signed for the big money most 13s were playing effectively as a prop and that's not really the case now either, plus middle fatigue is enhanced.

But by putting a million dollars of their cap into him they have created the situation where the rest of their forward pack (especially outside starters) is noticeably weaker.
ie if he is on 1million and subs off for a guy worth 180k is a very big difference compared to if he was on 850k and subbed for a guy worth 330k, who would probably help the team hang in there until JT13 was back a lot better.
