Nevertheless, I best not go off topic too much further. Reddy in for Everingham apparently, another gamble similar to the Goodwin buy though I believe that Goodwin was much more of a gamble considering he was recovering from a life threatening injury. I mean, you don't just rupture your spleen any day of the week. For him to make it back to first grade let a lone be competitive is phenomonal. I really think a lot of people forget how serious of an injury he had prior to us signing him and the recovery he managed to make to be one of the top defensive centres in the competition. My hat goes off to him. Hopefully Reddy is in a similar boat regarding Madge being able to get his ability out come next year!
So looks like Mundine is pushing Blake towards Roosters not Souths as posters have stated previously .
If they get Ferguson then hats off to Roosters organization for their powerful recruitment and ability to turn around the club in no time to be top of table force... Respect where it is due ..well done.
Recruitment of SBW, Jennings,Maloney in additions to bleeding their dynamic youngsters and then if they get Blake can only be commended
I hope we would have a better recruitment team than one that would throw money away signing someone like Joel Reddy. FMD!
THIS I BELIEVE
Just my thoughts but letting go Hunt and replace with Reddy with groin injury does not make any sense to me ? Seems like a bit of a procession with the exits from Redfern Asotasi,Evo,Farrell,Peats,King ,Crocker,Hunt,Starling, maybe Clark pretty handy half a team right there Wonder who is next ?
I WANT TO BELIEVE GLORY GLORY
Here's an interesting article on different strategies for the Salary Cap by Brian Smith for all you aspiring club CEOs.clubs.
THE CAP RULES OK
I wont paste it here in full as it's too long.
I am here to be convinced about Reddy, though I trust Madge to know what he is doing and Souths would not have signed him without Madge's consent.
I do not think that there is a mass migration of stars from Souths, only players that do not fit into the long term plans of the club to hang on to players that they feel are part of a great future for our club. Roy was nearing the end of his great career, King is retiring, Hunt is a good player but small in stature for a winger or fullback. Evo has not been up to the standards required by Madge, particularly in defence. Dylan Farrell is a loss, but again has not consistently played to his potential and others have left our club to have a better chance to play their favourite position at another club because it is so hard to bet a run in our club because of the quality of players in our top side, so it goes on. We cannot hold on to everybody!
From @brentread_7 on Twitter:
"Ferguson has get-out clause if Furner goes. He is now effectively a free agent. Clubs already queueing I would suggest"
We should move hard and fast he is what we desperately need not Reddy who will be playing for Norths.
We had better start buying Mundine a few dinners and a few nights out with Rusty & GI.
Ferguson in demand after Furner axing

Blake Ferguson is set to become the hottest property in the NRL after David Furner's shock sacking by Canberra on Tuesday.
The troubled NSW star has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave should Furner depart and the 42-year-old's axing will fuel speculation Ferguson wants out of the Raiders.
Former Canberra coaches Neil Henry and Tim Sheens are the early favourites to fill the position along with Sydney Roosters assistant coach Jason Taylor and Trent Barrett.
On an eventful evening in the nation's capital, Furner, whose brother Don is the club's chief executive, was sacked with immediate effect.
Assistant coach Andrew Dunemann will take charge for the final three games of the season with the team sitting one place outside of the top eight on points differentia

Luke Keary certainly isn't signing with St Merge; he's just extended his contract until the end of 2015.

Souths deny NRL interest in Rocky Elsom

South Sydney coach Michael Maguire has denied trying to lure former Wallabies captain Rocky Elsom back to the NRL.
Elsom, who once lived with NRL stars Johnathan Thurston and Sonny Bill Williams during two seasons with Canterbury before switching codes to rugby union in 2003, met with Maguire and Souths' high-performance coach Troy Thompson on Wednesday.
Recently released from his guest stint as a "medical joker" (injury replacement) at French Top 14 club Toulon, Elsom has been linked to a move to second-dvision club Narbonne.
But the 30-year-old's appearance at Redfern Oval on Wednesday, when he spent more than 90 minutes with Thompson and then had a coffee with coach Maguire, sparked speculation Elsom could return to rugby league.
He also briefly met superstar fullback Greg Inglis, but Maguire played down interest in signing the 197cm, 106kg rugby flanker.
"He's actually come down to see how we go about things. That's all it is," Maguire told AAP.
Guess who is meeting up with Madge and Richo tomorrow?
