He's a real trier, but he's just not first grade level. Was fine for him as a back-up play a game here or there, but that's the extent.


Love that this story suggests he was squeezed out due to cap restraints,just to add fuel to the media narrative that Manly are struggling with their cap.
He would (or at least should) be on bargain basement prices. We can't afford to waste the spot in our top 30.

I guess that headline gets more clicks than “Manly choose to not offer John’s a new contract”
Or perhaps change the thread title to:

‘Damn Cooper Johns with faint (very faint) praise’ thread.

If he is leaving, I would like to thank him for his efforts for M-W throughout the season. I think he has more to offer, and he will prove that is the case, in good time.

This is not intended to be patronising.

But he has talent in the media. Focus on his podcast and picking up media work.

No point busting up your body playing reserves year in year out for 120k.

He has higher potential in the content game.
