Seems like he's got a good blow up in him too ala Bellamy, but he doesn't have the coaching skill to back it up.

He was the coach pre season that was asking all the bouncers if they knew who he was? Bloke has no idea about anything
there is so much funny about a person saying "don't you know who I am?"

A. Obviously not
B. No, obviously not
C. Probably not, but if so they don't care
D – Z. No one cares, chump!

My understanding is if Klemmer is released we will make an offer.
We didnt go for the loan deal as Newcastle werent keen on the idea
You know for some reason I just got this hunch that Klemmer will end up at the Melbourne Storm. I’ve got no proof or anything, its just a hunch. It just seems to make a lot of sense. Klemmer will want to chase a premiership as he knows time is running out, he’ll get out of the NSW fishbowl so to speak and he’d know Melbourne would probably get the best out of him. On Melbourne’s side of things they desperately need to bolster their pack after some big departures and Bellamy would probably back himself to minimise Klems ‘rough edges’ so to speak.

I dunno it just seems to make a lot of sense to me. I’d like him at Cronulla though.

We'll win a premiership before Storm.

By some reports the issue with Klemmer being over looked for NSW was slow PTBs so while he is great in other areas it may make him less attractive to a team like Storm who know quick rucks are the name of the game. Or maybe Bellamy would back himself to teach him to improve in this area.

I can only imagine Klemmer being overlooked for SOO in favour of a teammate who is overall statistically doing worse hasn't made him very happy.
He's not so old he should just be happy for the younger guy just yet.

Regardless he does need to shave his head again.

Hmm that’s a bit debatable. They’ve still got that spine and they’ve had a heap of injuries this year. They’ll need a few additions in the transfer window yes but they’re premiership window is definitely not closed yet. Thats not to say we’re not in a good spot, we’re in the mix this year and probably will be for a few years depending on who we can keep. But to say for sure that we’d win another one before they do. Thats no certainty.

Nah we will mate, our ceiling is very high compared to theirs. So much improvement to come with us it isn't funny.

Strap in (I said in, not on) and enjoy the ride!

The Telegraph reported on Thursday further details of Klemmer’s spray, claiming he called Knowles a “c***” and told him to “shut the f*** up”.

Not sure if mentioned but Tele is saying we are interested in Jock Madden. Quote from his manager so I'd say it's pretty accurate.

Says Panthers, Knights also interested.

He's not starting over any of our halves so I take it he'd be depth of some sort, nice depth to have.

A move back to the Knights might be good for him.

Just pure speculation on my behalf, but I suspect there may be some attitude/personal stuff with him. The coaches and media spend way more time talking about him than his status as depth/fill-in half justifies. I reckon he or his manager might have pissed some people off.

Not sure he's needed even for depth.
