The argument that’s driving me crazy at the moment is that it’s somehow a double standard for us to release a player (like Farah for example) and then get upset when Mitch wants to leave mid-season.
Journos don’t seem to get that a contract is an exchange – a salary for playing footy. The club guarantees the salary part and the player guarantees the playing bit.
In the Farah situation, regardless of what you think of the decision to move him on, we were guaranteeing his full pay right up until he signed a contract at the Rabbits, holding up our side of the bargain. Not breaking our contract.
Mitch on the other hand no longer wanted to commit to his side of the deal - playing footy. That’s the big difference.
Am I missing something here?
