I get that a jump of say $200,000, particularly over a few seasons is a Massive difference, that will no doubt come under consideration when considering your future.It all comes down to family. He has quite a few friends at Manly however, his family will decide and money will be a key feature. If we can get close, he’ll stay however I think he is currently on a much smaller contract than he was at the Bulldogs.
if the Dragoon’s offer him $200k more a season, he’d be mad not to take it.
On the flip side, have always been of the opinion if you play in a successful side for less dollars, you will play better and be in far more positive spotlight giving far more opportunities for business sponsorship like footy gear , boots, commercials and maybe even a bigger chance involved in footy following your career....and being in a lessor team, as well as not being as enjoyable, may effect these financial opportunities that come with success....and the fact Suli has found a home, good mates and a mentor like Des, would also have to be strong motives for a young man when looking at a long term future.
