I hope he chokes on it
Maybe if he'd put in a decent performance in his last 6 months I'd have sympathy for him but before his sacking he was stealing a wage
I think he was underperforming, but the club should have handled it properly.
The upshot seems to be that the club is (probably) insured against the majority of the loss, it won't count on the salary cap after all, Keith Mason walks away from a job he obviously disliked with his mortgage paid and the club get rid of someone they no longer wished to employ. A bit messy, but not the end of the world and actually, it more or less all comes good at the end.
As for Kopczak, I'll stick with my original point. The Bulls were collapsing around him, he needed the security of a new job and went and got one. He has a young family to feed and needs a steady and reliable wage.
What Kopczak certainly did not see coming was the financial meltdown which has left the Bulls fighting for their very existence.
“It’s been unbelievable really and we’ve been kept in the dark a lot of the time,” he said.
“My wife has been really supportive while I’ve been out injured and we’ve just been waiting really, that’s all we can do.
“It’s just about making sure that you get paid so that you can pay the bills.
“That’s been the main worry, to make sure I can put food on the table. I’ve got a young family and there is uncertainty.
“Something might happen by the end of this week, it might not, but hopefully there will be a positive development.
No doubt in my mind that Kopczak did the right thing. All the rest is piffle.
....while two leagues of 12 with an 8-8-8 split was viewed as a compromise, sponsors were not keen to be associated with the bottom 16 after the split.
Guggisberg said: “We changed to a league of 10 in 2003 because the second part of the championship didn’t work. It was very complicated for television and sponsors who didn’t want to be associated with any meaningless matches. It is much easier to have two separate divisions."
