Can’t take him on 500k Souths would have to comp half that on both years remaining. Unproven at various positions that’s a ridiculous cap number. If Souths are doing dumb things like that I really don’t see how they can be cap compliant.
He is a 200-250k player at the most today
I do think the hooker situation for this season is not good and I just don’t know the answer. Surely we can’t go at least half season with make do’s? I had hope when there was th e rumour Maguire had recruited Parnell from ESL.
Mbye is better at 9 than Parnell.
Mbye will give good, fast service, is a good defender and can dart from DH like Cook does…he may just surprise us till Liddle makes it back…
Ive been thinking about this, and this bypassing of the cap that Souths have done shouls be an ATO matter.
If LM took our $1m/year deal (lets say it was an even $1m) then he has to pay tax on that, and he gets maybe $650k after tax.
But taking Souths $600k, he gets maybe $450k. Now you add the benefits given to his hanger-ons, and theres no income tax on that, so it just takes another $200k and hes broken even.
Souths (& likely the Roosters, and Storm) are cheating the ATO out of taxes that the players should be paying.
So is James Packer and his mates… and 70% of Australians via their returns
Some caller on 2sm reported this arvo Corey Thompson to Penrith…anyone heard anything about this
Not true in the slightest.
It was true before Corey extended…Riff put an offer to him which Corey rejected and extended with us…hey smoke thought you had inside knowledge, maybe you were sick that day…yeah
How do people know that we have tried for Lomax and Moylan - because it was suggested in the media?
To my knowledge there was never any offer/contract to either who are both contracted to clubs.
If having chats with players is now considered as missing out on them and suggests club evasion, every team will be victim to that and not just us.
Correct - We didn’t offer Lomax a deal and we didn’t take Moylan past a chat as he was after a long term deal that we were not prepared to offer due to his history on injuries. Tigers declined him not the other way around.
Moylan also said he didnt want to leave Cronulla
