How many members is there on this forum? I’m hoping a couple of thousand members. We can than all in a common goal use the power of the masses. Hear me out for a second……
Just a thought - maybe we can start a gofundme page for a player the majority agree on (after doing a poll) as a TPA which we can be presented to the player via his management
My understanding of TPA’s is that the club can NOT organise it on behalf of the player but the player and their management team have to arrange it in addition to their contracted amount with the club.
In most cases the club “introduces” the player and his manager to a “potential” TPA. They assist but of course do not organise. All emails from clubs are monitored by the NRL so they have to be very careful how they do things.
There are two types of TPA’s the contract TPA’s which is the one Klemmer is having a problem with.
The other TPA’s are gigs with Channel nine Fox etc which are outside the contract and are organised by the manager.
Million dollar contracts for example Hunt and Hayne would get 900k on the cap and 300k TPA’s. No way either player would get 1.2m on the cap.
