Ryan said:Sorry, I don't buy it. With Fa'oso leaving us, that's an extra 130k available to spread wherever we want to. If DCE AGAIN, is wanting the bucks, bucks, bucks, then he can hog that.
DCE and his management group make his contract, and it's negotiations a debacle.
Does anyone remember the threats and suggestive comments the LAST time DCE wanted another upgrade mid contract?
Play Hiku and Matai in the centres, move Lyon to 5/8, and play Foran at Half Back. We won a GF 40-0 in 2008 with Lyon at 5/8, so I have no issues with him playing there.
Let DCE go if he keeps threatening mid contract.
He's a good player, yeah. But to cost the club player after player. Forget it, especially when we have options. Glenn Stewart has at least another 3-4 years to play. At LEAST.
Fluffy said:cant believe people believe everything they read in the media.
In which case why isn't this an issue for the dogs since DCE and gifty and most of our squad were going there
MissKate said:I didn't,t think we had the $130k available, I understood we were standing by Richie and paying out his contract (as any decent club should do) this mean it will be included in our cap for 2014. It is only teams like the dogs that retire players mid season because they have swung them a cushy job with the nrl or tv and don't pay out their contacts and then benefit from the extra cap space
Top End Eagle said:Glen Stewart will go and brett will retire/package deal uk or somewhere else. DCE and for an are priorities. We went pretty well with Horo and symonds whilst gift was injured last year so that won't help him at the negotiation table. Let him earn the coin he deserves somewhere else.
