Simple to you but that’s the Rort, its not!!
Simple, it all depends which club / player it is , different strokes for different folks. Welcome to Toddyville circa 2019
Reminds me of another star centre's retirement https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.sm...niers-surprise-signingoff-20110916-1kds1.html
Mate, you can believe ... or make up whatever fantasy scenario you like ... but the fact remains that Ingliss has retired .... and Snake and Matai didn't ..... Therefore ... any comparison is irrelevant .....
Given that almost as soon as Barrett was gone as coach and Des was back at the club, Snake was asked to come back and he had no hesitation in doing so, I think its fairly safe to say that the reason he at least (not sure about Matai) stayed away was because of Barrett. Zoolander was a big cancer on this club.
To be honest. Looking at him, listening to him , pondering that hair , the sheer amount of gel required , the blank looks at press conferences , the limp wristed excuses, the lack of accountability , furnituregate, remembering him choke as a player .......how did we ever go down that road .... it is a nightmare never to be revisited I hark back to one of our great soldiers Arko at the player and fan reunion last year on GC. When asked about Zoolander.... “ nice bloke but let’s get him on a bus back to Wollongong He’s not one of ours “ Three long wasted years that would never have happened with the Godfather calling the shots. We are on our way back but we need need to learn from that mess. Never again Never ! Des is Manly and we will win our title this decade as history requires.
I really don't know what's worse, the hullabaloo over Inglis' sham retirement or Charles and Dianna's wedding. Personally, I would have Charles and Di marry again tomorrow, if that was possible, than put up with all of this Inglis stuff. Everyone is carrying on as if we lost a great Australian and the whole country is in mourning , I don't ever recall him splitting the atom or inventing the wheel, FMD, God help us!
The fawning over GI was expected. I think it's hilarious that he said 'it's not mental or physical, I just don't want to play anymore'. But they don't ask 'if the NRL and your Club didn't offer you money, would you have still quit today or just continued to use the injuries you now claim don't affect you to sit on the sidelines ?'
You can bet your left testicle, [ if you're a guy that is?] that his ambassadorial job with Souths is topped up in some why by his new best buddy Greenturd
It was discussed on 100% Footy that some Clubs will be watching what the NRL conjure up Gus missed Weidler's point and harped on how the game owes GI and should throw money at him. Weidler share my viewpoint that it's the 15 Clubs that are now short changed by the Rabbids moving a non performer into their admin costs and freeing up 1.5 million that they had previously committed to GI the player Gus called that a trivial point https://www.9now.com.au/100-footy Meanwhile Manly and the Sharks are stretched due to just 350k less in their Cap Dogs would love the NRL to entice Fiz to become some ambassador too
If you reckon this is bad wait until we get Scams last game. FMD that’s going to be horrendous.
With every poor decision that the Beatberg-Greentie duumvirate preside over, one can sense their grip on the current setup loosening. Clubs collectively, as are fans, are tired of the favoritism which ensues. Which is ironic, because a major excuse for setting up Supertrooperleague was the perception then that some clubs were favoured more than others.* I think Beattie is more under threat (the de Belin business) than the other fellow, simply because the latter is a seemingly vacuous, Teflon-coated smooth-talker who has managed to fool enough dunderheads to allow his career to progress to this point. He is the Michael Rimmer of rugby league (Google the Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer, starring Peter Cook). *Now nearly 25 years later, we have real rather than perceived favouritism happening on a routine basis.
So the NRL has just came up with a new rule that allows players to retire mid contract and then immediately get paid by the same club to do F all. How many ways can this get exploited by rich clubs ? Let’s say an ageing player is on 800k for the next 2 years and is playing reserve grace . Easy solution - retire him take the cap relief and pay him $400k for 2 years to work the door of the leagues club . That’s just opened a massive can of worms
Has it been confirmed he gets the same pay as his playing contract?
Unbelievably even more as the NRL will also have him potter around. Fox News just discussing the incentivising of GI's retirement by matching his contract value with that from another job
It’s actually only a small can of worms: because this rule will ONLY apply to certain players and certain clubs.. It won’t affect us of course, if one can ignore the fact that we’re NOT getting me if these clubs, and no Manly player will ever get this sort of dispensation.. I mean.. let’s face it: consistency is over rated anyhow!! They’re pissing on us, and don’t even have the courtesy to PRETEND it’s just warm rain..
Exactly. I never understood why we had to include his salary in the cap if he retired? The Snake and Matai case was different, Manly were seeking medical retirement so snake and matai could be paid their full salary but not included in cap. Souths have told Inglis you can retire but will we still give you 300k job.
He's going to write a book, working title The Wisdom of Inglis..... "Greg Inglis’ inspirational story is set to come to life with the champion South Sydney back considering releasing an autobiography about his stellar career. The Daily Telegraph can reveal Inglis has received interest from up to six respected publishers following the announcement of his retirement on Monday. The legendary Queenslander is yet to take up a book deal offer but he’ll meet with his manager Allan Gainey in the coming days to discuss the idea of sharing his story. Gainey has been inundated with interest from book companies like Penguin Random House and New Holland and says an autobiography on Inglis’ journey would be captivating reading."
Souths probably timed this to coincide with the NRL being distracted with JDB’s case...
Consistently inconsistent. No Real Leadership NRL
