I think he's being milked by some "cybercrime experts" happily playing into whatever paranoid conspiracies he's telling them. "Mr Seibold it turns out you were right, all along it's that dastardly Wayne Bennett and that no good Darius Boyd we just need another $20,000 to hack into the mainframe"

Now I'm disappointed that I didn't think of doing that first.

Im predicting dufty and Norman to go huge. Norman is shithouse unless he's skiing down hill and then he becomes a God.

Broncos will look ok for 60 mins and then they'll have a rediculous defensive laps and the flood gates will open.

Didn't wake up early enough to see this one, but looks like Latrell was amazing. Great for me because I can continue to pretend he's useless and fat. Might watch the replay later today though.

E: Oh wow, this game was over before it started. 26-0 only 20 minutes in. Great fun.

This is interesting. Pangai Jr and his totally not shady agent Isaac Moses signed a deal with the Broncos for $150k less than the Warriors were offering. Now the NRL Integrity Unit wants to find out more about third party payments that haven't been made.

That knights/cows game was loving dire. Both teams should be fined for bringing the game into disrepute.

The eight probably won't change from here, I don't think the knights, my Raiders or the Sharks can win it, but the other 5 might be in with a shot, depending on injuries etc.

I think it's fairly open as far as any one of the top 4 has a solid claim.

Season will always be Asterixed, but it will be legitimate.

As hilarious as this is, wouldn't it be really loving dumb for Seibold to accept this offer? If they sack him they have to pay him out, and I'm guessing the three years he has left are worth more than $1m.

I read it as 1 mill to go, on top of paying him out.

They've been really weird about performance clauses existing or not existing and other things over the last few months so who knows but it might just be heres 1 million to go away and we won't tie up everyone's lawyers for the next 5 years while we battle out 3 mill.

Im hearing atm that hes accepted and its just finalising the agreement as we speak but that could just be journos wanting to be first and throwing poo poo at the wall.

That wouldn't make much sense though. If they sack him they'd have to pay him out in full, why would they pay him extra to quit? Although the club is run by garbage clowns so who fucken knows.

Paul White was being real weird about it because he didn't want to admit to giving a rookie coach a multi-year multi-million dollar contract with no performance clauses whatsoever.

I interpreted it as giving him $1m now to gently caress off now and nothing else. If that's over and above what he stand to earn from the contract he's a giant loving moron if he doesn't take it.

I thought he was on 1 mill a year
he won't coach again, he might as well sit it out Darius style and collect bank
I think the 1 Mill, was a gently caress off now bonus

I can't see how Broncos don't end up paying him out for his contract regardless.

it's not the coaches fault that they signed up for 5 years, without KPI's built in.

That's not from when he was signed iirc, it was when we were 1 and 5 in our worst start to a season in 20 years.
