Dib is very happy with the outcome - either foxing- or the player sale is not going to be anywhere near the scale that is being predicted.
A deal has probably been done with a player moving on, this cap increase has likely put them right.

No matter what, the bulldogs will have to write off next year and start a re build in 2019. It's seems almost every decent player is signed up or retiring so that will be harder said than done. They will have to most likely rely on over paying for young talent and we all know that ends up. Woods could go 4 years at the bulldogs and not have much success. Come back woodsy before its too late.

So how many years at a club before your classed as a veteran. It's an extra 200k we have to spend if we just use it on Lawrences contract.
Woods has been having weekly coffees with the Dogs all season. That's enough for veteran status.

Whilst it would be nice to jam the bulldogs up the blirter, id offer Woods whatever our last offer was to him. I wouldnt be interested in lowballing everyone, because that will always backfire. If it means dogs add some, then tell woods that is up to him to either get or forego.

Pay him what he is worth, make him happy, breed loyalty and good club ethic, and get on with life.
Maybe we can all chip in and get him a welcome back cake as well?

I love the pay him what he is worth and breed loyalty comment. We've been overpaying these guys for years and they showed no loyalty at all.

The bargains available in the fire sale won't be in any marquee players being offloaded and subsidised. It will be the new talent coming through that clubs can't afford to fit in their cap. Like the eisenhooths and the twals.
Seems like Ivan's already onto that.

We should offer 500k a year on a 2 year deal (with Bulldogs paying the remainder for 2018 season)

It would be a waste of money he is getting very injury prone

Well of course any player that they want to move on would also have to agree to go; contracted players have the right to remain at their present clubs until the contract expires.

Dont think Teddy and Woods have been overpaid by this club, some others maybe.

I would think Woods would be a massive chance of having to play elsewhere now considering the 200k for long serving players wouldnt qualify any of their player bar Reynolds i would imagine. Of course that depends on if the stipulations are changed around the length of time. So effectively the dogs would be working off a $9.2 cap unless they spent the $200k on dev players, still massive issues either way.

Id take Woods back at 5ook for 4 seasons the dogs picking up the remainder how sweet would that be imagine his manager squirming back into Pascoe's office :lol:
Morris would qualify I think.

That is how it should be. We need to identify the best of the young talent, especially young backs with genuine pace, on the cusp of the NRL. Let them grow into our young team, not grow out of it at the back end of careers.

No more young Talent. We picked the "Young" Brooks, Moses and Tedesco and they struggled to understand their roles without strong mentors.

James Graham for $400,000 I would say Yes. He brings a fair bit of experience and pride to the sides he plays. 500k, Hmm I would have to think about it, I would not pay more then 500K because of his injuries.

The sharks are playing with 36, 34 and 32 year old forwards and doing well with it. I would not rule people out because they are of that age. In fact I don't think anyone would object that we should have kept Chris H.

Twal, Marsters, Suli, Eisenhuth et al have been good for us. We don't want a retirement home and we have enough experience. Bring on the young stars.

Well I object - two ball Heino, one for him and one for the rest of the team ....no thanks, was quite happy that he left us when he did, bad luck it wasn't earlier.
