Farah has been unfit to play for a month...
If he has been unfit for a month, which I strongly doubt why was he named in the team last week and the week before? Is he actually still at the club or has he run off through a hole in the fence somewhere?

That Hip Flexor Injury takes ages to heal guys.

Also requires spending late nights out with mates on the town - that must be the part of the rebab manual that Timmy Moltzen followed as well - never quite seemed to recover from injuries quickly....

Which is what he is and always was intended to get no matter how this played/s out. A mute point that people keep bringing up.

Don't understand what you mean by this. He has a contract for next season and it will be honoured from his perspective. Whether it is paid in full by Wests or a combination of Wests and another club, the contract from his perspective will be honoured. If either party doesn't honour the contract, then it is a breach of contract. I can't see the club or Farah doing that.

The only way he can get a reduced pay position would be for both parties to agree to part ways from the final year of the current contract and then enter into a new contract. Possible - it would mean that Farah remains a one club player, but would earn less than his current contract.
Of course he will get his fullmoney, but not if WTs get their way.
Luckily they picked the wrong bloke to try this on. Maybe I'm wrong but I think that Farah
Will call their bluff. After all it's his decision as to what he does.

I don't see the issue in paying him in instalments. It's likely how he is paid at the moment.

As I said, if he doesn't want to play State Cup in 2017 he'll have to meet the club halfway on some of the terms as much as it will eat him inside to do so.

Seriously, do you have any idea how contracts work? Do you know how many players in the comp atm would have some of their salary being paid by a former club? It's common practice. For you to think Wests are doing something evil by attempting to negotiate terms with another club to ease cap pressures shows either you have a very simplistic view of how how the cap works, or you are so embittered by the way the club has treated Farah, you expect every cent should come from them, no matter how financially crippling it may be. Either way, its madness.

I'm not sure if you're aware, but when we first signed Todd Payten, he was being paid by 3 clubs in his first season with us. Canberra, Roosters and us were all chipping in. And i'm pretty sure we paid some of Blair's salary last yr in his first yr at the Broncos. By your logic we should have footed his entire salary for 2015.

Tim Grant is being paid by both Souths and Penrith this year I believe (as well as WT).

Its hard to take seriously, the moral high horse riding about the club doing the wrong thing by Farah when the club did the same thing to Galloway last yr and not a whisper was made. Its laughable.

Just watched those highlights against last raiders game, struth their no. 9 created havoc but RF was not supposed to do that. If Mitch can pull this one out of the hat then he can walk on water

And there we have it - the useless response that keeps the merry-go-round on this discussion ongoing. The basics of contract law and the precedents of 100's of other players in the NRL in similar payment situations all thrown away because there is no official statement from the club or Farah.

Has what been confirmed?
That the stalling of this saga is because he wants a full pay out on what he is owed up front. Because just as he has a right to get what he is owed, i dont think him or any player can demand for it to be paid up front.
