Will Autex or the NRL be paying $$$ as players return to quarantine in NZ?

The NRL have already given warning to clubs that the next one to go under will be allowed to do so and their licence will be onsold.

Unless that club is regarded as "Strategically important" ie Manly are the NRL's baby in North Sydney which they really want to keep. So money will be found by the NRL to prop the club up, even if the current owners/bosses are told to sod off and die. Suspect Warriors are in the same boat. But you're right, someone will buy the Warriors off Autex if it came to that.

A Buppie or a Yogan? Wonder what careers advisers would tell the schoolkids these days.
Obviously A Zoo Operator.

Not quite sure where I land with this. Clearly passionate which is great to see as an owner, but I just dont think its all that helpful for the club when anyone associated with the club comes out and says "we must finish x position next year", just seems unnecessary. Sure say that within the walls of the club, but to share that outwardly I just dont see any benefit.

I like the idea
I even heard brown saying it won't happen overnight .
So this should put the good pressure on them
If they can't handle that we won't win the final
So mark is expecting results .well I am to
No more rebuilding years

I love this guy, he sounds as dumb as a pallet of pink batts but he's a goddam rugba leeg genius compared to all the bullshit artists running the club since Watson bought it. I believe every word he says, and more importantly I believe he does too. Playoffs or you can take your contract and fuck off to some other incompetent clown show like the Blues or Broncos.

An owner should have high hopes and ambition. Fuck me, I'd rather that than a wet fish saying "I hope we can sneak into the 8 next season." Ambition, confidence and high hopes filters through work places.

He's only said that's his thoughts, and he clearly rates the roster. There are a couple more signings coming apparently. I think we're missing a Stacey Jones, but if Chanel Harris-Tavita develops who knows.

This is a recipe for disaster.

But his heart's in the right place...

All our expectations are for the top 8 and I'd be disappointed if we miss out, along with 7 other teams.

If this season has shown us anything, that in the right environment, this team can play, we want to see this continue.

He has the passion, the question is do they have the cash and willingness to use that cash for the team. Downside Robinson looks like a shoot from the hip type. The stars have aligned where Uncle Gus can advise him there.
