Money not form keeping Farah out: Ayoub by Matt Logue
You're going to reference not only an article from the Telegraph, but an article from the telegraph in which Ayoub is centred on Ayoub opening his mouth.

Good god man try save a modicum of credibility.
“he will get what he is owed” is this an attempt to give legitimacy to the behaviour.

does anyone believe our club would not storm Ayoub’s door to sign one of his prize studs?

or plant a favourable story in the Telegraph if it meets a purpose?

wasn’t it Nietzche who offered - "if you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you"?
Who did Nietzche play for ?

We are heading down the same path where the players are a commodity - well paid yes, but a commodity that has a use by date and is moved on when no longer required. This has crept in to the game in the last couple of years but will become the norm. Farah is at that point with this club. He is a good footballer and its unfortunate he probably wont get 250 games with the club but he is no longer seen as part of the clubs future. He will get what he is owed. Get used to it because this is the way professional sport in Australia is going.
I agree with what you said. My only bug bear is you move on a club legend who is at the end of his career and we all acknowledge that. But if he is playing for another team next year and we are still paying $650k of his wages, then did we really benefit anything?
Yep we save 300k. the constant bad publicity is gone, the team focuses on football the board focuses on business and suddenly we are a professionally run outfit.
This is one of the most outrageous statements I have ever had the displeasure to read on this forum. Simply appalling.

Lol - I may have been offended if this reply was from anyone other than you Robbie.

In the real world you dont identify an employee to the media as someone who does not "fit" in your workplace, tell him he is no longer required , yet leave him hanging around for the next 12 maybe 24 months. You would pay they are due and tell them to leave immedately. A proffesional organisation in the "real world" would never in a million years handle a situation like this the way the tigers coaching staff and higher management have.

Uh, the club never went to the media, Farah did, a fact always conveniently forgotten.

I take it that you've not heard of the term "gardening leave." Many businesses employ that tactic, I've also encountered that personally after resigning, simply to stop me from going to a competitor early but not have any contact with those within my previous employer.

The one significant difference is that Rugby League clubs are inhibited by salary caps on player spending. Real world private enterprise can let someone contracted go and while it counts the salary counts on their bottom line, it doesn't stop them from spending more on bringing another employee into the business whereas NRL clubs are precluded from doing that by way of the salary cap.

Why then is the telegraph . Such a font of knowledge, if they write a complimentary story on Taylor.
They all of a sudden, become almost saint like with their wise words
It's amazing how opinions of them change.

Believe the ones you agree with denounce the ones you don't - we all do it - and if you think otherwise you are kidding yourself.

The Kidwell story today! Everyone excepts it as gospel because it is favourable to WTs. How about a reality check Ink with your Messiah. I think we can still fight it out for second last again this year.

interesting andrew johns saying moses is a halfback not a 5/8. that he should be number 7 and running the show. maybe brooks has to go back to reserve grade. and maybe you play a big 5/8 like sironen, who csn tackle but also pass if has too.
