Dogs’ skipper’s sacrifice handed them a $500k trump card. This is how they can use it​


How generous of Josh Jackson to just give up half a million dollars the Dogs were obliged to pay him. Lucky for him the Dogs' sponsor will look after him, wink wink, nudge, salary cap auditor look the other way please
.....

This is what Laundy said when announcing the sponsorship 2 years ago:
“I intend to become very involved,” he said. “I have a very large business and a successful business. I will do my absolute utmost to get Canterbury to a successful position in the rugby league competition.

I like to talk to the players about life after football and where they intend going. If I can help them get there, I will be helping.”

If this dispute is all over the players not wanting a transfer window. Then I for one say the players, players association and Clint Newton especially can just go and get ****ed.
 

40 nil

It's only a game ...
Interesting video detailing Denan Kemp's sporting career which includes soccer, athletics, AFL & NRL, and then how he developed his podcast career

“There’s a market in America for NFL players to come here,” V’landys said.

“Where do all the NFL players go that don’t make it to the NFL? Where do all the college players go?


Umm, they go to Canada and play in the CFL, still make more money than in Aust, and also still live close to home.

Who was that bloke that claimed to have been an NFL player and ended up on the wing for the Knights a couple of times?

Yeah,he should really do his research.
Not just CFL,there are numerous US second tier leagues like the USFL etc...where they don't even have to leave the country.
They are around 21-22 years old after uni and then the number of years it would take to just learn the game to be competent makes it a ridiculous suggestion.
I am sure some would jump at the opportunity of a paid holiday and easy money for no expectations though.

Wouldn "t be that sceptical about such a proposal . A natural athlete is a natural athlete anywhere and with the right type of instruction and training , maybe not that much of an issue for a successful transition within a reasonable timeframe . Probably just the reverse of guys like Hayne and Holmes making some good progress to be almost within contention to making it to the top level in the N F L . Certainly would not expect to produce playmakers , more wing , full back , possibly centre roles . Can recall Newtown bring over a speedy gridiron player who played fairly regular i st grade footy as a winger back in the day [ Manfred Moore ] . Sure that there would be dozens of fringe N f L players who may well be suited to making the conversion with a heap of natural ability but namely speed or power based ability and again for a few set league positions .

It is not a question of if a player could make the move.
There are actually numerous lower tier comps that pay more than a Dev contract here.
The best of the rest will go to those comps,so you are getting less than the best of the rest.
You could still attract a decent level of athlete but to suggest you would attract the best college players who don't get drafted is pie in the sky.

Has anybody seen the latest NRL promo on TV lately, It's got shots of various players from different clubs all action shots, ie; scoring try's, tackling, celebrating. Then pans to us, what looks like a homeless much older guy with an old tattered Manly cap making something at the back of a car. Who makes these promos, and does this content get shown to the clubs before they get aired ? Have noticed this a lot lately, with Manly only getting fleeting moments on NRL promos.

110% mate. I notice the same thing. Then when players are shown, maybe, just maybe, we get on once...other clubs many times. It stand out like the proverbials.

Yeah, it's becoming annoying to tell you the truth, we have the best attacking player in Rugby league and we hardly rate for a decent action shot of the team.
