  1. Is he related to the Sosaia Feki who plays at Cronulla? With him having the same name and all that... Because the Sosaia Feki I've been watching every week for the best part of the decade is known for making the hard yards early in the set and for going missing oftentimes under the high ball especially in defense. As for the footwork, well, I suppose that running in a straight line from point A to point B requires some. I do agree with the bolded bit though. He's a confidence player.
  2. Don't take my word for it, but I know from an extremely reliable source that in 2016, not only were the Sharks over the cap by at least a good $2 million (but hey, what's a million dollar these days?), but they also played all their games with needles up their ***** (not an easy feat mind you). How else would you explain their, let's be honest a minute, rather suspect winning streak, not to mention their premiership? And cherry on the top, all of this on the back of one-eyed refereeing (Looking at you, Mr. Cecchin! Your timely comeback ain't fooling us by the way) And yet, by far the most damning thing, a true Machiavellian scheme, they had the guile to actually organize illegal third-party payments and still stay (officially) below the cap. Who are they kidding? My request to the NRL: retroactively award them the spoon for the 2011-2018 period... And please add 2019 and 2020 for good measure. Or better yet, kick them out.
  3. A bit rich from a guy who signed 2 contracts at the same time. He's entitled to his opinion. I'll refrain to comment any further.
  4. Barry Russel resigns from his position of Sharks CEO. An interesting tenure to say the least.
  5. The club's still at Cronulla? I thought they would have been forced to relocate by now. Would be funny if the new sponsor hired Flanagan.
  6. If allegations are true, deservedly sacked in my opinion. He'd better learn a trade fast, because his football career is probably over. Of course, he might still get a character reference from Greenberg.
  7. Ciraldo? Please no! No to Barrett also! Morris should be the coach for 2019. End of discussion. Now, knowing the Sharks, they'll pick Kevin Walters or Brad Arthur
  8. Any entrance fee/deposit to be paid?
  9. Must be the consequence of Flanno's indiscretions... No risk taken whatsoever form no on. :D
  10. Well, that's news to me. In 2016, I had to go through the NRL's online store to get all the memorabilia I wanted. I had an email somewhere of some sort of manager explaining me that. I even thought they still held a grudge for the Kokoda Trail Campaign. Edit: It looks like they have East Asia (does that include Japan?) on their list of destinations.
  11. I tried to order from the Sharks official store, never could. They don't ship overseas they told me! :D Never told me that Japan sucks though.
  12. Don't these guys know how to cheat properly? I'm always astounded by the amount of people who are so computer illiterate that they even use their professional emails (It happens every single day in every business sector and probably is one of the reasons why the job of competent investigators is so easy, just need to read the papers to know). If you're going to break the rules/law, be smart about it. First rule: don't leave any written trace behind you. Flanno was dumb for breaking the terms of his suspension back in 2014, and even dumber for leaving a trail that easy to pick up and follow. A good plumber he might be, a lousy spy he certainly is. Cloak & dagger stuff ain't his go. I don't advocate cheating, I believe the NRL did the right thing in this instance (although they're not always that efficient and/or thorough in their investigations/handling of suspect matters), but this is typical Cronulla. That level of incompetence is staggering. I thought I'd seen it all in my 20+ years following this club, but it's got to be the icing on the cake.... until next time.
  13. Well, I agree with you 100%, Graham. Yet, I'm always amazed when I read that people put themselves in that sort of situation in the first place. What is it, the 4th or 5th incident since the start of the month? It's going to be a long offseason. Edit: Of course, it goes without saying that I'm in no way defending De Belin's actions if what is alleged is true.
