@Newtown said in NRL to Discuss New Rule re Breaking Contracts:

Recent cases involving winger Jason Saab and props Addin Fonua-Blake and Josh Aloiai highlight the need for a framework, which has seen clubs raid each other’s rosters while losing players themselves in similar circumstances.

Funny how all 3 cited examples involve that scum Manly.
Kick 'em out!

@cochise said in Wests Tigers Centre of Excellence:

Ill leave this discussion about home grounds now, but will just make sure everyone understands where I stand lol. I’d prefer we didn’t use the SFS.

We can at least agree on that.
ANZ stadium is in the right place, it’s just the wrong ground.

What’s with all the talk about $450K, I thought Nofa was on that already?

“As part of the release, Wests Tigers have also agreed to an undisclosed commercial settlement with Josh’s new club.“

They got something from manly, no idea what.

I doubt if we will ever know.

I previously stated as part of a previous post,

“As some others have said, if we do get something of significant value from Manly and it is not put out in the public for all to see, then it is a pretty bad look for us and our tough talking leaders”.

The only conclusion I can draw from the current situation is that the compensation that we received from Manly was of such an insignificant amount that Wests Tigers management are too embarrassed to let us know and will no doubt use our chairman’s legal expertise to claim that it is “Commercial in Confidence” or some similar cop out.

This comment drew a fair few down votes, as a lot of people don’t agree with it. Personally I upvoted it. I upvoted it, not because I agree with it, though the same thought did cross my mind. I upvoted it because the person had the conviction to post something they thought. And even though it isn’t popular, I want to encourage people to post what they think.

I don’t know what criteria people use for down-voting, and that’s up to them to do so however they choose. Personally (from my recollection) I generally only like using down-voting when I read someone having a dig at someone else. And I don’t mean the playful state of origin digging, but what I think is a harsh dig.

I would also like to say, that this view here that so many people don’t like, will most definitely be held by some non-WT supporters out there, fingers crossed hopefully not the majority. Fingers crossed not by too many in the media.

Thanks for posting that and having the courage to do so.

Just for the record I am a pretty passionate Wests Tigers supporter and don’t like seeing our club trodden on and treated with the disrespect that some players, player managers and some sections of the media have in the past.

If anyone thinks that I have been disrespectful to the club in any way, I apologize, but as previously stated, as a passionate Wests Tigers supporter I feel that I have a right to speak up and say something if I feel that the club has been weak in taking a stand on some matters, particularly if I feel that it may leave us open to the possibility of even more issues somewhere down the track.

Just in case anyone is interested and hasn’t understood, I think we have come out in front with the way things have turned out.

What concerns me is that we will never know if it was good management or just good luck that the JA and JO deals came off the way they did.

My thoughts are that after all the tough talking by our chairman, the way Josh was able to walk away just seemed like we gave in at a time when we should have taken a tougher stand to really make it an issue and force the NRL to bring about some changes in this area.

I had a feeling that it would pretty much end up this way when we started seeing reports in the media stating that the release of Josh was imminent with JO expected to be released to us from Brisbane.

I interpreted this as a bit of good news being spread around to detract from the original tough talking comments and demands made by our chairman.

well if it was $2m or Geo’s $12m, then I would be happy.

So you’re saying we capitulated because we haven’t disclosed the sum paid…

Yet you wouldn’t question our professionalism if we aired the compensation paid to us?

Yes. I think we will find some sort of excuse or reason that we cannot disclose the amount, which I believe makes as look weak and as if we have once again rolled over.

If it was a significant amount (which I some how doubt) and there was not some sort of legal impediment to us disclosing the terms of the compensation, I think it would be very professional of us to disclose it as a deterrent to other clubs trying to encourage players to skip out on their contracts.

And what about what Manly want? Are they OK with how much they paid another club to steal their player known?

The whole point is that a number of clubs have let players go, they seem to have been reasonably happy for them to go. They didn’t play it out in the media and make public statements about what a hard stand they were making and how it wasn’t going to happen unless they got compensation.

And we got compensation

Probably a pie and a can of coke.
we supply the sauce.
