yes his future deal is like the lochness monster talked about alot but never really revealed ,I would also like to know if the fact we gave him 2 more years if there was a discount applied to 2023 as part of the deal ,or maybe they cant do that ? But anyway I hope its at least 30-40% discount on what he is on nowThe interesting thing for me with his extension is that I haven’t read how much he is rumoured to be on in that time.Normally there’s always someone in the media that reveals a figure,right or wrong,but I must of missed this news.If he’s on less than a million a year for that contract,I’d be happy with that
If they extended him for another 2 years on anything north of $500k they are dumber than I gave them credit for. Signing him was crazy enough, if they are paying him anywhere near 7 figures they have completely lost the plot. What are we paying Foran for these last couple of years ?? 300-400k ?? That's value for moneyThe interesting thing for me with his extension is that I haven’t read how much he is rumoured to be on in that time.Normally there’s always someone in the media that reveals a figure,right or wrong,but I must of missed this news.If he’s on less than a million a year for that contract,I’d be happy with that
Barrett really changed the way DCE played didn’t he.
He was so dominant from 2011-2015. Then the slide happened and the crabbing sideways, poor choices with kicks, passing to players not in better positions etc…
He also seems to get pressure put on his kicking game more and more from the defence. Other teams have the player on the 4th tackle with leg speed. This keeps the 5th tackle defence back and time for the kicker. We seem to have a plodder, or a back that gets easily dominated giving the marks and easy run at DCE.
He’s just not the same anymore.
Yep. His petulance would become passion.If DCE was to retire & as much as Moses is disliked (only coz her plays for the Eels) I'd have him at a pinch. Has a great kicking game, kicks goals for fun, speed, great attacking skills. He'd be dynamic i think in Maroon & White!
You could be looking for the following word:I'm not sure we would be able to field 3 halfbacks instead of DCE. You're only usually allowed one and if there was a loophole Melbourne would have already found it. Cleary is obviously the best but I have nagging doubts about him, something to do with how he has got a lot bigger quite quickly, his permanent acne and the neanderthal like forehead. They are usually warning signs for something that I can't quite put my finger on
What happens if Turbo goes down for half a season with a suspected sore throat? Or a suspected broken toenail?Yep, but make Turbo captain. Not sure how many NRL captains have been in charge for more than 6 years, but simple fact is the side hasn't been on a clear upward trajectory under his leadership, and for a variety of reasons a significant shakeup is needed in the place.
I think he's still one of the top halfbacks, and way better than anyone else we are likely to get at this time.
Lol, the shoulder injury has nothing to do with being injury prone, could happen to anyone falling the way he did. But fair point, over the last 4 seasons he's only played 44 out of a possible 99, and several of those he failed to finish.What happens if Turbo goes down for half a season with a suspected sore throat? Or a suspected broken toenail?
