Elite players sacrifice plenty for their career. They all want to win a GF and all players looking back on their career say that a GF win was the highlight. So what if the entire squad sacraficed 10% of their contract (took a pay cut) freeing up $400k per year to sign another elite player ( im thinking prop) that would really push them into the Gf and a win. I know it might suck if you are a lower paid player but after a Grand Final if you really want to go chasing the cash surely you could ask Souffs for more than what you were on before. Nothing good comes without sacrafice and whats $30,000 compared to winning the big one if your already on $300,000?
