Its a absolute joke. I understand if he cant play anymore, but the way the Bulldogs are making out is ridiculous. They want to pay him outside the salary cap which wont affect them into the future. They signed him up knowing that Foran had preexisting injuries that has effected him for some time. At the moment Foran has a toe that is injured. They cant medically retire him because hes missed a few games. They need to show evidence that an injury that is not preexisting is making forun unable to play anymore. I just dont like the fact that the Bulldogs wont be effected by the salary cap after there monumental blunder.
From what I’ve read the Dogs want to see if they force him out of the game by saying he’s a dud and he can’t play due to injuries … if the NRL approve this the guy can never play footy again … (well registered ever again) but apparently Foran wants to play on. If the Dogs manage to get the NRL to approve it, the Dogs are given back the money in their salary cap what Foran cost them ($1.2m). But it looks like the NRL are saying to the Dogs, you knew what Foran’s injuries were before you signed him on big dollars … so thats a big NO to pension him off.
Bulldogs are dreaming.
They just brought in a rule that teams get up to 350k for a new player if they are injured for 6 months + and he has been out 1 week.
It was well known Foran has had reoccurring injury issues before Bulldogs signed him. An insurance company would have a field day.
