That last conversion from the sideline... I was thinking Aaron Cruden needed twice to win the game vs Ireland

He's got a squad of 35 (!) players, and yet no depth to cover for injuries. His average 1st XV CSR is 380K, his 14th player got 275K, and then it drops. His 15th got 156, then it's 143, 143, 136, 129.. And still, compared to teams like JRC and 3eme Age, that's a monster of a bench.

I cannot understand that strategy. Injuries happens in almost every game, often several of them. How can it not be efficient to have at least three players that can match your 1st XV? And why the hell is Rambo sporting a squad of 35?

Yeah I sweating on that. My kicker only has 14 kicking too!
My reward? A match against Razor's monsters.

Forget about feeling vulnerable twit your team stinks and has no chance of winning the cup anyway, more importantly i forgot to set my orders what a cunt

not sure if i need to reply to this....hee (haw)-ah-leer-e-is Laughing

Almost quit over the weekend. Finger got very close to the button.
If I do walk there'll be no more messages so just in case I wanted to say it's been great fun guys, best laugh I've had on BR for a long time. Just got too much else going on with work and other RL stuff.

I've also got a hard dose of OCD which I think I mostly dominate but sometimes it bites too hard, BR used to help me control it but instead it's been a part of it now for a while. Needing to control every aspect of the Japan project (including assistants) but not being able to has wrecked my head completely, couldn't handle the 4 teams and the NT scene. I come online, knowing I should be doing other stuff, so do nothing here (on BR) either so as not to feel like I'm prioritizing it to feel less guilty. Crazy behaviour. It's like what George Carlin said about drugs, when the balance turns to the other side.

Anyhoo, we'll see. This isn't a "hold-me-back" move. Just a simple explanation. It's no reflection on anything that was done or said and I hope it's understood that it's not a lack of respect for the community here either. Maybe I'm just writing this to make leaving easier.

Btw, I am a bit troll-like. If I were a NZer I would probably be the one voting NZ First! (just to set it straight) Wink

P.S. Would anyone be interested in buying any of my Japan trainees and bringing them up to 500k+ CSR?

if you wanna quit...there is one rule.

you could either - make an abusive statement, blame all the problems on the match engine or a Jeremy consiparacy theory, yell obscenities at some of the other managers.....what are some of the other things? (help me other managers)

but the most important part....sign off with "rage quit"

Other options:

- say soccer is better.
- fake a picture of jeremy being bribed to get a 400K CSR team
- say it was NOT a forward pass
- quit while holding the Ranfurl... oh wait!!
- share a picture of yourself saying goodbye to BR... on a wallabies jersey

Many have talked a big game about rage quitting in NZ but no one has gone through with it. Ripper must have threatened to rage quit 10 times...but when he finally went he gave his team away to a Scottish manager to be used as a Scottish farm. Booooooo

I think you should look to talk smack some uppity managers that you don't like as a parting shot. I would make some suggestions but at least one of them actively spies on offsites in an effort to cause controversy.

Chewy's fallen for a big slender one with a long reach. Ooooh matron.

And now Rob has joined the party. All the NZ ladies (or not) have been sleeping in cold beds this night. Sad

i didn't manage to get into the TM splurge these last few days....probably to my downfall....Sparker are looking fantastic now, they really have a gun looking team.....they could be good for the rare double this season, they will be tough to topple in the cup next week....big call to make for tomorrows league game...
