    We'll be back on the bottom at the end of round 11 or 12.

    David Gower is a solid player and would be cheap!! Very good defensive player.

    Tepai Moeroa would be awesome to!

    Sorry, what bullet did we dodge? They've won 6/9, and we might scrape in 1 or 2 wins before the end of the year, so Eels need 4 wins to be ahead of us again.

    Surely they have to shed some players also to fit him under the cap. Like Barnett to us. Parra in a tough spot hardly any teams will have room under their caps to take over contract completely

    Don't fret 88 the Eels will still pass us and they will discard that much in a week or so.

    This should mean we get Barnett, Barry Toohey seems pretty confident in it happening.

    Hahahaha love it!!
    Clearly we all know we won't go any good for the next 2+yrs with the players available at the club.

    But it would be nice to at least look at the positives?

    It could be worse guys!! We could be Parra fans hahaha

    How is that worse? They will still have a better season than us in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

    This is the second best result for Knights fans (first would be the eels aren't allowed to gain any points for rest of season)
    The eels have 10 days until their next game, if they haven't unloaded the 500k by then, that game won't be for points.
    They will be offloading some players likely to be Cornish, King or cup players. Possible Norman (if they do we should deffiently swoop), plus they lost 12 points. Can't complain too much guys

    I am all for being positive and understanding of the position the club is currently in! I am against talking schitt for the sake of it!

    As you get older and a little more mature 88, you will realise you have to look at life realistically, not through rose tinted glasses of a misspent youth my lad!

    Wait, we're being negative. Your post is about being happy that a team lost all their points and will lose some players, so we don't come last.
    I'll still watch every Knights game, and hope we win, but I'm being realistic, we were flogged by the team coming first, and couple weeks later we were flogged by the team coming last. As I said, we may win 1 or 2 games, but I can't see us going on any sort of winning streak.

    Yeah, I'm afraid that 12 points isn't enough to save us from the spoon. 2 more games and they'll be back in front of us

    Yeah, nah you guys will still be getting the spoon I'm afraid. I'll give it 4 games until the Eels are back above you again on the ladder.
