  1. The problem is that some star player might have 1 year left in them and a club might only have $300K space in their cap. The club then signs the player to a 3-year deal at $300K/year, the player retires after that year and the club keeps paying them the other $600K - effectively paying them $900K for the year despite only having $300K space in their cap. The problem isn't clubs forcing players to retire, it's clubs signing long-term contracts which players won't physically be able to fulfill as a way of getting around the salary cap.
  2. Sounds like the old Robbie Kearns story at the Storm where Kearns was still coming into the club a few years after he retired and picking up his pay although nobody there knew what his job was. https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/kearns-paid-360000-to-be-an-office-boy-20100427-tq28.html
  3. That won't happen at Easts. If I was Nick Politis and Trent Robinson had a dispute with Jesus Christ, I'd be telling Jesus to get on his bike.
  4. Purple Bricks have left the country. They packed up their tent, closed down their branches and hit the frog and toad.
  5. Just "advising" him, I think. If he turns Muslim and takes up boxing, we'll know the Mundine influence is strong.
  6. Fortunately he has the huge brain of Anthony Mundine guiding him so Swinton and Rochdale are probably still a chance.
  7. Wests Tigers sensationally withdraw offer to Latrell Mitchell https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nrl-premiership/teams/tigers/latrell-mitchell-news-wests-tigers-withdraw-contract-offer-to-sydney-roosters-star/news-story/b66c8852ac3ba3bc1aa851dcf487fdab

  9. 11 home games plus 1 game at Magic Weekend at Suncorp = Sharks complete quota of home games for the year. I assume they are doing work at Caltex/Endeavour/Woolooware/Shark Park.
  10. From the "Good News" section: https://www.sharks.com.au/news/2019/11/04/sharks-and-dogs-team-up-on-significant-png-project/
  11. Am I the only person who didn't know the Sharks would be playing at Kogarah in 2020? https://www.sharks.com.au/news/2019/11/22/sharks-in-a-kogarah-sneak-peak/
  12. I'm surprised at that. I thought he could easily do another year at the Sharks. He was at a Sharks beano for sponsors last Friday to publicise the fact they'll be playing 11 games at Kogarah in 2020. https://www.sharks.com.au/news/2019/11/22/sharks-in-a-kogarah-sneak-peak/ That would leave the Fish with just Woods, Fifita, Hamlin Uele and 2 guys from park footy who've never played NRL.
  13. He's right though. There's no point being in SL if your only goal is to stave off relegation every year.
  14. Another point: I wonder how much influence the wives have in these decisions. I know a couple of NRL players came back early because the wife wouldn't shut up about how homesick she was.
