Anyone have any news on whether the slimey grubs will release Stefano Utoikamanu for 2020??
No news but if the young fellow has the potential to lose significant $ because he is on a development contract at the Eels, you would believe there would be etiquette to release him unless our offer can be matched for a year.
@pawsandclaws1 he is on about $70k atm right??
I read $60k which is a huge difference. I can’t fathom how the Eels can retain him unless our offer can be matched for a year.
I can. He has a contract and they are holding him to it. Any club can do it when someone under contract starts whinging about mental health issues, coaching their son, or not liking their current role.
Making an example of one person sends a message to others under contract that may be looking elsewhere, much the same as releasing the first whinging player makes others realise that they are free to look around.
