Hindsight is 20/20. Let me put this to you, Foz and DCE are honest people, so the club clears space for them by letting Choc and Gift go. Signs DCE to big money as he stated he wanted to set his family up. Then we sign Foz to a moderate deal as he wanted the best coaching, which we have in Johns. Is anybody calling for the Administrations blood? Probably not. Now, if we decided to not believe them. We keep Gift and Choc on big money who have 2 years left at best. Then news comes out about Manly being unable to sign DCE and Foz as we can't fit them under the cap. I would suggest Choc throws his toys out of the cot because the club isn't resigning the best halves that lead us to a premiership. Fans will be pissed. We have no cap space and are in the same position we are now. The board will be blamed bla bla bla. Third option is what has unfolded. The board took two players on face value and thought they could resign them. Evidently they couldn't but at least we are in a position salary cap wise to rebuild. Of the three broad outcomes that could have occurred, yes we didn't get the best, but at least we are in a position to rebuild moving forward. At the end of the day, Foz is a liar. He was never staying. DCE would have resigned if the NRL didn't take over the Titans. Who saw that coming 12 months ago? Some things are outside the boards control. This was a Swiss Cheese Situation, the holes lined up just right so everything fell threw.
