    Apparently Storm are going to offer Watmough Huge dollars to switch to them in 2011

    Then Watmough needs to be reminded about Bellamy gloating about how they exploited his defensive deficiencies in 2007.

    Don't see how they can offer him big dollars when they had to release either Johnston or Lima this year to keep under the cap.  Typical media beat up.

    Des will make him joint captain with Lyon next year and if he does a good job then he will be sole captain when Lyon leaves.

    1% chance of happening

    Watmough seems pretty commited to Manly imo, and with what they have on their books, if we can't put a good offer to him there is no way that they can

    They got rid of Johnson to save money and they were always going to make a play at choc. They will make an offer that will be too hard to knock back..

    He is worth it and being captain might make him stay.

    This rumour has been going round since he hit that good patch of form around SOO. There will be plenty more, he has made it clear he will be squeezing out every dollar he can before re-signing.

    Inglis, Smith, Slater, Cronk. I think that if you look at those 4 players, you would have to come up with an average salary of 400,000 between them. Choc would be 350k minimum how he has gone

    You can't take up near on 2 million of a 3.2 million salary cap on 5 players

    Berkeley eagle......You should know better than to listen to anything that dimwit, "Shane" says.

    Anyway, the Storm have their hands full trying to pay for Smith, Inglis, Slater, Cronk, Blair and Hoffman. To sign a player of Watmough's standing they would need to release one of their big 6.

    Never say never, of course but.......very unlikely.

    Cronk is on nothing like that, the rest yes but he would be lucky to pull $250k

    Cronk is on 200k. Signed a crazy cheap deal, but he is very marketable and earns well from corporate 3rd party deals.

    I have it on good authority that Manly have offered Watmough 400k, and he will sign soon. 400k too much? probably but hes probably the best forward in the game ATM

    Choc has also stated that he'd like to be a one club man, but if he goes for a money grab he could end up at any club.

    I just hope choc hasn't got the ****s because of the way he was treated when he slapped the sponsor.

    If his form keeps rising the way it has been over the past 2 years then he's completely worth it.
