    We are struggling financially, the only money is coming in from Penn.

    If there was ever a time for Penn to open the cheque book, it is now for DCE and Foran. If we let these two guys go our future doesn't look bright at all.

    We left it too late with Hasler after we supposedly offered him more then Dogs after he had already signed.

    Penn and the club can't afford to be reluctant this time, just sign these two and go light on the $$$ for the next few years.

    We all need to get behind Penn and show him our support, he is our only hope for the future of this club.

    That does not help our salary cap dilemma.

    Umm, wrong. This will be the last year any club will use their own money to pay the top 25 players. The salary cap will be fully covered at the next TV deal.

    The problem is the Salary Cap. We cannot afford to pay any more, not because we are poor, but because we have used the full $4.3 million. You are basically asking Penn and Co. to rort the cap which I am completely against, and so should you.

    As of 2013 all clubs will be financially secure as they will only have to cover backroom costs/business costs/lower grade wages. This will be done with sponsor money and money from memberships. The top 25 wages (the salary cap) will be covered by the NRL.

    Total wrong. Ytd the club has actually made a small profit, revenue is up as well. With Penns, quatum, the footy club and dave perry were In good hands. Just ignore the muppets at the telegraph the are running a person vendetta on behalf of a bitter and twisted former employee.

    We won't keep everyone but we will keep enough to be more than competitive.
