  1. That’s a cruel blow for Knights fans. First Mullen now Kostjasyn and Ponga won’t be joining the squad until 2018. Keep developing and believing in your young talent and things will come good in the end. This might give an opportunity to one of you rookies.

    • So much I now understand, but the most important thing is to know when to keep your mouth shut! (and I can already “feel” a dozen keyboards busy typing a “zinger” for that little remark). What happens “in the bin” stays “in the bin” trollz. You’re a clever boy, you’ll work it out. I see you were living up to your name while I was away. Reg was right, you ARE a cheeky boy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Verrry baad ,,, verrry verry baad (use Indian accent,Ahpo Seinfeld ,finger waging )
        It was hell trollz878 , can’t talk about it ,

        • So how did you get out SSTID ?
          I told em you did it !!!
          Blamed you I did , sure was scary when they came knocking , guns ,body armour , Lebanese food , man I swear il change ,baaaaaaa ha ha ha ,I’m fully loaded SSTID , next time I’m useing my Nukes !!!!

        • Sounds crazy. Did you use Nate Myles forehead as a shield from the guns? I feel for you, Lebanese food, eughh.

        • Zero tackle please let us talk about what ever we want. Threatening people for not talking about topics is ludicrously silly. I enjoy your site so please just let us off the leash.

        • holmsey4346 good to see you back too! As much as I am an advocate for free speech and a firm supporter of a bit of banter we have just seen an example of the kind of carnage that can happen when people are “let off the leash” and show no self-control or self-restraint. For my part I apologise to all here (even though I was attacked on a personal level and without provocation in this instance). It seems a little unfair that “the usual suspects” are allowed to start a personal and public attack and are not censored immediately but ZT support have their hands full so some low blows fly under the radar it seems. Moving forward I still intend to have a joke here and there, just not everywhere. We all seem to know a fair bit about the game (save one) so let’s try to keep on topic for the sake of the whole ZT community. Cheers

        • So there was 3 of you in the bin? I was starting to think Holmsey was tommyt4dallym, because if Silvertail was going to make another account it would be, MoveDCEto9

        • OK Sherlock, let it go before Zero Tackle put YOU in the bin to give you a little quiet time for reflection. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • And Zero Tackle, you can’t really make us just keep on topic. Seriously, there is only so much you can talk about Rory Kostjasyn and his injury. And I know you guys generally post daily at least, sometimes there are multiple days with no new stories, so we have to keep ourselves entertained on here some other way. Just because we go a little bit off topic doesn’t mean we don’t care about the story (although there are seriously some stories on here that are just click bait stories that really shouldn’t have been posted, but I would say that’s only at about 1% of the articles). Keep up the good work with the site, some good inside info here and it’s good fun to be on here.

        • trollz, I think their point is about self-control and the ratio of “on topic comments” vs “Dean Martin Celebrity Roast”, capiche?

        • You know what happens Trollz when you assume? You make an ASS out of U and ME. DId your parents ever tell you that one?

          Did you ever stop to think it may have been a collaborative effort? That I may have been assisted by someone else? Poor Reg was just doing me a favour and found himself in the middle of a “pecking party”. Perhaps I shouldn’t have involved someone else but after all the “shout outs” it was hard to resist. Perhaps it was a โ€lapse in MY thinking”, but not Reg’s. Sorry Reg.

        • Nope never heard that one, I give it a 9.4/10 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

          Reg was really another person? His vocabulary and the way he types was the exact same as you (with all the ” and ‘ and the CAPITAL LETTERS)

        • “Nope never heard that one”

          Everything old is new again. Just wait for the next generation and look like Solomon! ๐Ÿ˜‰

          “His vocabulary and the way he types was the exact same as you”

          Not “exactly, exactly” (he didn’t like emoticons or correct mistakes, which was mine by the way even though he copped – or I copped – a cheap shot for it, but like I said the “lapse” was mine). Like I said a “collaborative” effort, (think of screenwriters co-writing a screen play). I may have influenced him a little… we had to draw in our audience after all. It was funny while it lasted seeing “the usual suspects” like moths around a flame. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Billy boooiyeee! The “The Cooler” was a lonely place brother! Remember Steve McQueen in “The Great Escape”? That was me with the baseball and glove! Da Donk! Da Donk! Da Donk! Da Donk! LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Can’t say we didn’t warn you about getting wrapped up in the nonsense now can you…. lol.

        In all seriousness good to have you and silvertail back. I especially look forward to round 2 Rabbitohs vs Manly.
