Imagine of Madge was given the same red carpet treatment that Ivan was given when he arrived incl $$$ to spend and full support of the board. Poor Madge is cleaning up after Ivans incompetence. Madge is exactly what WTs need, a hard ass, no nonsense leader. No one can blame him for our poor performance culture, poor recruitment situation and any player unhappy with it can go play park footy for a free stubby and sausage sizzle.
This is a classic case of why the NRL has to change the legalities of player contracts. Clubs either can’t sign players for more than 2 years at a time or there needs to be a performance based element to all NRL contracts longer than 2 years. Packer isn’t performing and his stats are proof and he shouldnt hold our club to ransom. A certain type of player at a certain time of their career shouldn’t be able to play reserve grade on 500k plus a year (It’s ridiculous). Easier said then done i know and its our managements fault paying so much for such a dud player.
