Because Brooks hasn’t been dropped in 8 or 9 years. What are the chances that he’s magically going to be dropped next game of all games after the story was leaked. It would be one hell of a coincidence
Time will tell. Him being dropped would not surprise me one bit.

He would have been moved a couple of years ago .So who the bloody hell
Put him on back ended ridiculous contract with by reports 900 k this year and $1.1 mill next year .Was this only Madge ? Or did Pascoe have his hands on this also .If he did he should be gone also .No one is going to pay anywhere near that and we could be paying over500k to have him play against us .if that's the case still a good idea

Buzz "reporting" we're only looking to save 500k on his contract....
Minimum wage is 120k - Better off to keep him and play him in ressies.

2 potentially bad options-

Backloading contracts
Paying players to play elsewhere

Risky on their own, catastrophic when mixed.

We routinely play with fire by paying the wrong guys too much for too long, and then being gutless about performance leaving us with with no good options. Grin and bear it, or take a massive hit.

I'm sure that Pascoe came out and said we would be much more careful with backloading after fixing the first Sheens inspired mess - which took years. In fact, our (and Bulldog Des') incompetence was so great that there were articles stating the NRL had changed rules relating to these contracts, essentially to protect clubs from themselves.

Or possibly Hooper made it up (and as journos do these day, hide behind the term 'sources'). Absolutely no accountability in Australian media.

If there is a leak, they can weed them out by giving key staff & board members with different info & see what makes it to the media.
listen to hooper's explanation totally made up all because he had a bad game e g his kicking was bad
now it is the dolphins
tomorrow maybe souths who knows

I gotta feeling that brooks will win a premiership with whatever club he goes to before the tigers win a comp 😭
Not with his absolute specialty, building a solid attacking set on 3-4 sets and then kicking the ball dead into the back fence, nor kicking the ball into oppositions feet on every 5th tackle he won't.

Nor me. But it would make the club look like idiots from here.
If the clubs end game is to move him on, they don’t care how they look to us. They have to appear that selections are fair and reasonable to the players, the employees. Hence the ambiguity in the media.

Further to my previous post on Wednesday talking of Brooks ridiculous salary of $1.1mill next year ,the NRLnews on the net is saying its $1.3 mill next year
What the ?..Madge is gone but Pascoe must have been involved .This is so damaging .Pascoe should accept responsibility and do the right thing

The Club hasn't released his package nor should they it is confidential. Do you really believe the sources coming out with this information.? It is only being used to whack him over the head.

I know its hard but people don’t look at his 5yr contract and look at the overall contract value rather than each year on its own. For the 1st few years of his contract this was a non issue nor was it reported because of how low his earnings were.
