A lot of you have been debating whether we can fit both Foran / DCE into our salary cap. Being a Banker, I thought I'd do some calculations, that might help you form a hypothesis of your own (bearing in mind, my numbers are complete guess- timates):- Salary Cap: 6,550,000 Veteran playing allowance: 250,000 Minimum Wage: 80,000 * 3rd party deals (see below) Please note the clubs top paid 25 players for Manly must fit into 6,800,000 01. Brett Stewart (Estimate 650k) - per zero tackle 02. Jorge Taufua (Estimate 150k) 03. Steve Matai (Estimate 350k) 04. Jamie Lyon (Estimate 500k) 05. Peta Hiku (Estimate 175k) 06. Kieran Foran (Offer 750k) 07. Daly Cherry-Evans (Offer 750k) 08. Brenton Lawrence (Estimate 200k) 09. Matt Ballin (Estimate 300k) 10. Josh Starling (Estimate 150k) 11. Feleti Mateo (Estimate 300k) 12. Tom Symonds (Estimate 200k) 13. Jamie Buhrer (Estimate 250k) 14. Willie Mason (Estimate 200k) 15. Dunamis Lui (Estimate 150k) 16. Jesse Sene-Lefao (Estimate 120k) 17. Justin Horo (Estimate 150k) 18-25. (Average 90k per player) - 720k (some players on 80k, some on 110k) This equals 6,065,000 in team salaries (Leaving 735k in cap space for my stuff ups and/or low balling players). 3rd Party Arrangements for Associated Sponsors Note, that our current sponsors can provide players up to $600,000 in payments for using their services to sell brand etc. This has not been used above/ 3rd Party Arrangements NOT Associated with the club Note, that non associated entities can pay our players unlimited amounts, but these deals are very difficult to find (that are above board). Assume, we can get our EXISTING sponsors to use KF / DCE, and top up each of their deals to say 1 mill each - this isn't so difficult. That is NOT touching the 735k in cap space, you can assign to the rest of the playing group. This tells me, we can easily afford all players (including huge deals for the halves) Thoughts guys?
