not me... too much trouble for an immature, injury prone player

When a star is available you take the opportunity. With Carney we might have another premiership in the cabinet

how to know? if we had Carney last year, then perhaps Reynolds would not have had the year that he did... maybe Barba would not have seen as much of the ball as he did... i am also not a big believer in Carney in the big games

my issue with players that play up to the point that they get sacked, released, moved on etc. is that there is a good chance those issues will re-emerge if they sign with another team... for example, Carney was great for the Roosters in 2010 but was back to his old tricks in 2011 to the detriment of the Roosters and then moved on

not every player is going to get on with his coach, people will make mistakes etc... we shouldn't be overly judgmental to the point that we deny such people a second chance... but there are players/people that will continually f*%# up to the point that they become bad and/or disruptive influences to those around them

l don't know. Hence the word might. But what I do know is that a player of Carneys quality had a large influence in taking the sharks from bottom 8 to the top 8 and played for NSW. Now the evidence would point to Carney making the Bulldogs a better team. We have possibly the least creative halves combination in the league and it is possibly the weakest point in our team. So l would imagine that Carney a very creative player would make the team better. And I doubt that playing next to one of the best halves in the game would make Reynolds and Barba worse. Look at Slater Smith and Cronk, Arguably the best 3 players in their positions and they play exceptionally well together.

l agree completly that these types of selections can go either way, however the club in my opinion has as much of an impact on the outcome as the player. With Greenburg and Hasler I have alot of confidence that they would give a troubled player a great chance (See the way they have handled Barba so far).

would be something to ponder:

1. Barba
6. Carney
7. Hodkinson
9. Ennis

14. Reynolds

1. Barba
6. Reynolds
7. Carney
9. Ennis

I'm sure it won't take long for the Titans to be labelled interested. We seem to want to sign every free agent and throw every troubled player a life line. Shits me to tears to be honest.

Watching the footy show and Erin confirms Titans and Dragons already expressed interest.... I thought this we want to sign everyone attitude might have went out the door with Searle.

This could get interesting. I heard on the wireless this morning that the NRL have asked for a justification of his sacking. Meaning they want to know every little indiscretion that caused his sacking. Could they be trying to make him sit out the season?
