@formerguest 20% of 2.8mil is 560k . The maths is right
Nah mate, he’s right…I mentioned in my post 20% of the remaining contract years…
The whole contract is worth $2.8 million over 4 years, so $1.4 million over 2 years is $280k.
I mistakenly calculated it over the 4 years.
Either way, the NRL can come up with what they think is fair upon consulting the clubs and stakeholders, but I reckon it would cut out a few of these dramas the NRL is having.
Probably need to put some rules around it by saying the new contract must be X% higher than their existing contract to activate the clause so raiding clubs don’t low ball the first contract only to significantly bump the contract in later years to save on the transfer fee.
