Guys, Ryan Hoffman was unable to be offered a contract to that of which The Warriors could, and was forced out of The Storm next season. Why aren't we hearing Cooper Cronk, Cameron Smith, Billy Slater & others threatening a revolt like Matai, Foran and Watmough? Melbournes reaction? They were gutted, but re-affirmed their loyalty to each other, and suggested they wanted to send him out a winner. Cooper Cronk is better than DCE. Notice how little conjecture there was with his contract, in comparison, with Cooper coming out early to confirm to team mates, fans and club where his loyalties lye, even suggesting he signed for less to remain. So what is it? Lack of professionalism from the club, the players or a bit of both? If Manly could have afforded Glenn Stewart, they would have. Do these players all want the club to cheat the salary cap? Imagine the media frenzy then! Im disappointed in all parties involved, and even if they secure a premiership, it will be tarnished with this. As a member and fan, the players management group, the players and the club for mine are ruining the spectacle of the game, and that's a shame. Joey on the footy show just now, threw his hands up and claimed, "I just go there, do the half back stuff, and leave". Says a lot about the culture off the field. Debacle. Ill be in a position one day I hope to offer employment opportunities to these players post football. They aren't doing themselves any favours with their attitudes.
