    The rest of the NRL peeps didn't know what he meant. Was a big reason he rejected the job.

    If you trade out player B your cap increases by the amount of player Bs value at the time of trading. So if player Bs value is 180k you have 180k to spend. If you bought player B at the start of the season for 100k you've effectively increased your team's value by 80k, if you bought player B for 200k you've effectively decreased your team's value by 20k.

    Pretty simple indeed. I'm sure he's got some pretty straightforward views on conflict in the middle east, humanity's oil addiction and world hunger too.

    You just get player Bs value to spend. The increase in player As value is irrelevant unless you're trading him.

    I agree with your assessment that the chances of the NRL ever getting crowds like the AFL is about the same as the chances of peace in the Middle East and of world hunger ever ending, i.e. none.

    Yeah, the first 3 weeks are important for scouting players scoring wayyy above their price bracket and getting them into your team. (values only start shifting after week 3) Keep an eye out for high scoring rookies debuting throughout the year as their value will be low for the first 3 weeks and rise before their 4th game.

    Well unlike fans of some other sports, NRL fans aren't deluded enough to think their sport will "take over" a city with over 100 years of history with a specific code.

    Don't think there'll be too many spare seats at ANZ stadium on June 5th though. Or are we not supposed to be counting that?

    Hey? I'm not asking for the NRL to get 90,000 fans in Melbourne. Brisbane or Sydney will do. Pretty sure the history of NRL is pretty good in those cities, can't see any reason not to get the fans there.

    If you can get plenty of fans to Origin, you should be able to get them to the NRL games then.

    Never had an issue with the rugby league game. My issue is with how the NRL is run. Just go ****ing watch your team play every now and then for Christ's sake.

    ****s come up with all sorts of excuses for the difference in crowd numbers, i.e. ticket prices, nrl supporters are poor ****s and can't afford it etc but honestly i reckon afl is just a better live spectacle, the nrl is good to go to aswell but you get a better view of the game on your tv, the play is only ever in one part of the ground so you don't miss anything by not being at the ground. afl on the otherhand theres to some extent something happening on every part of the ground and by going to the game your getting a better view of play e.g, a better view of the forwards running leads and whatnot.

    beer prices far to high at sydney grounds also ftr

    And you wonder why kids get into betting and the like when this **** teaches them thevalue of a buck and how to trade/ negotiate on the value of players. they ought not be playing it.

    Sorry, but they shouldn't.

    How good is it that the Broncos are back on at a late hour when no one outside their own **** city has to watch them?
