Cap space that he created by releasing players early,we didnt obtain any compensation from Parra for Matterson, and the early release of Marsters, who we are yet to replace. Im a Maguire fan, but im seriously scratching my head this off season
Maybe Madge believes he has a replacement with Momo, or Talua and doesn’t need another centre, with Mbye.
This is the difference between Melbourne and us - compare this to the Matterson fiasco. They lay out the conditions and timing of release and then will obviously negotiate to come out reasonably well whereas we throw our hands in the air, sook about having players not wanting to be here and then cave in with no conditions.
No, this is the difference between a player with integrity and one without.
I went for Ivan the terrible, but Moses and Matterson were not far behind. Woods was pretty bad, but I cut him some slack cause he’s missing a little on top and he did give his all in his last season with us. I didn’t hate Tedesco that much, until they did a piece on him during origin, and basically made no mention of his time at Wests Tigers.
Ricky Stuart’s press is quite saddening. I feel so sorry for that club at the moment.
He did the right thing, no need to go off put the attention on himself, everybody saw what happened, the newspapers will do his work for him. Still doesn’t change the result though.
