(Denver) Broncos could be next stop for SBW

I'VE never been much of a fan of Sonny Bill Williams. In fact I can't really stand any player who thinks their sport owes them a living. When Williams walked out on his Bulldogs contract, I felt very strongly he should be banned from the NRL for life. I haven't changed that view.

Having said that, I accept clubs are businesses and they will do what they think is best for their club, both on and off the field.

With that in mind I am still trying to figure out why the Roosters think signing sport's biggest gun-for-hire is a good thing. A close friend of mine Danny, who is married to a distraught Roosters fan, put it even better than I can on a Facebook post this week.

Enjoy. "Wow Roosters - now I've seen it all. Signing a player to a one-year contract who hasn't played league for five years, has just come out of shoulder surgery and is in the press conference with his arm in a sling. He can't participate in pre-season training because he has a boxing match scheduled and also a contract with rugby to fulfil (that and the fight should help his shoulder recover)."

The player states he doesn't even want to play NRL and prefers union but is honouring an agreement. He states he's only going to play one year and doesn't think he'll go well in the forwards as he hasn't played there for five years. The CEO thinks he is the highest paid player at the club but looks puzzled like he has no idea and states he "hasn't seen the whole salary package" then goes on to say "I'm not sure how much we have left in the cap".

I don't know about you but I was imagining Benny Hill music playing during that press conference.

I can only see one possible way the Roosters will be able to look back at the end of the 2013 season and be happy with this bizarre signing. Try this. Sonny's shoulder recovers and he somehow manages to avoid injury in his heavyweight boxing bout.

He then manages to summon up enough enthusiasm to turn up to training before surprising us even further by competing in the forward pack. Somehow the Roosters perform beyond all expectations and make the Grand Final. Sonny Bill plays his heart out, wins the Clive Churchill Medal and the Roosters win the grand final.

Sound good? Well it should because anything short of that is an abject failure. But even if this unlikely miracle does occur, Roosters fans should prepare themselves now for the inevitable.

The one-year-wonder will most likely grab his "Clive Churchill", run off the stage, get into a limo and nick off to his next one-year-deal playing NFL for the Denver Broncos.

Well why not? They have plenty of cash to waste.
