Kent on Hayne

Unread post by innsaneink » Tue 05 Dec, 2017 7:37 pm

NRL making it up as they go along again?
JARRYD Hayne’s $700,000 salary sacrifice to join Parramatta may have been made under noble pretences but the terms of the deal has got many people across the game scratching their heads.

The NRL must consider a player’s notional value before green lighting any contracts and NRL 360 co-host Paul Kent sees no way that could be the case with Hayne’s Eels return.

Speaking on Fox Sports News 500, a fired-up Kent tore into the NRL over their failure to show the rigour needed in evaluating the Hayne deal.

The senior News Corp journalist even launched at a conspiracy theory, tabling the idea that getting Hayne’s salary off the Titans books could help the NRL-owned club’s imminent sale to private investors.

“To be honest, I think the whole thing stinks. I think there’s a smell about this,” Kent said.

“I don’t see how the NRL can justify Jarryd Hayne taking a $1.2 million deal, walking out on it and being allowed to get under the cap at Parramatta for $500,000.

“I’ve got no concept of me can figure out why that’s a fair deal.

“The NRL, I’ve spoken to them today about it, they’ve argued that’s what Jarryd’s current market value is, but how do you establish that?

“The fact is, he hasn’t gone to market and if you try to sign any other player in the NRL and try to take $700,000 off his contract price, I don’t think the NRL would register it.”

Kent said he had several theories for why the NRL might bend the rules to help the Titans and Parramatta get the controversial deal through without fuss.

“Let’s also remember that they are an NRL-owned club at the present and the NRL are trying to offload them, so to get rid of that (Hayne’s contract) off the bottom line, maybe that helps as well.” Kent said.

does anyone here think he's worth $500k? I reckon about $350k tops these days.
On the bus or under it!
Your choice.

The league will just ignore it until it goes away, much like the chooks and donkeys cap every year.

I thought Kenty spoke excellently on this topic last night.
What a shambles this whole 18 months have been for Hayne, Parra, Titans and the NRL.
This stinks to high heaven.

I don't see a problem with it. He was a speculative signing given his time away from the game and the Titans paid crazy money in part because they hoped he would be a crowd puller. He has utterly failed to deliver both on and off the field. As a player his value has plummeted and as a marketing tool his value has plummeted. He has however substantially enhanced his status as an actual tool.

Nothing ever changes at NRL HQ. We were led to believe that Greenberg was going to be the Messiah but how wrong people were. If anything is going to kill the game, it will be the people who run it

Far out this sort of thing fires me up. I’m so sick of the inequity in the NRL. The draw is a joke, third party agreements are a joke, the salary cap is rorted, some teams are refereed differently to others....... and those charged with the responsibility to govern couldn’t grow a choko vine over a sh#%house. I’d say rant over but I doubt it is .......

Worst recruitment decision of 2018

Wonder how Neil Henry feels, Arthur must have balls of steel. Parra can have the grub.

You dont see any problem with a player breaking a contract and taking a $700 000 pay reduction to join a club busted for salary cap rorts only a year and a bit ago? That doesnt set any red flags up for you?

Can I just say , the story they ran after the Hayne story is far worse

Supposedly the player managers involved in the Parra 2016 debacle are going to front the NRL soon

And they are basically saying they will bring the whole TPA story down and they are saying that Greenburg himself might get rolled in as well

But not every player manager is going to be charged that is involved .....

It annoys me , the people in charge of the game are too scared to stand up to anyone since the SL war , they are scared clubs will run off again and start their own comp

He didn't break a contract, they agreed to release him because he wasn't worth anywhere near the cash he was taking up and was and is a toxic figure. His ego is probably what drove him back to Parra. He sniffed the possibility of a premiership and wants to be celebrated as the prodigal son returned to lead them to glory (and if they do win that will probably be the narrative in his head regardless of the reality).

I don't think the NRL could stop him taking a massive pay cut, that would be a restraint of trade. They could however refuse to register the contract as anything less than a nominal market value against Parra's cap. $500K does not seem to be grossly outside his market value at this time. Ferguson has tainted his market value with off field crap. SKD compromised his market value with off field crap. It happens...

Such a fall from grace for Jarryd Hayne. I do believe that Parramatta is the only club that he could possibly resurrect his career with. At $500k I guess they decided it was a risk worth taking.
