Player movements and rumours

Discussion in 'The Cesspit: Rugby League Discussion' started by Julian, Apr 7, 2009.

    The downside is it'll just fuel more arguments and accusations about salary cap cheating.

    As if SST is only on 400k when we're paying Russell Packer 600k a year. ETC.

    There's this misconception that a salary reflects a players ability when in reality is just one factor out of a number of different variables. Two equal players simply signing their contracts in different seasons could fetch completely different salaries. There's enough dense discussion around the NRL as it is, lets not fuel any more.

    Not every player is going to be paid on a linear scale according to their ability though. Some deals will suck and some will still be good, at least we'll know what, why and how a player is being paid what they are rather than wondering why some teams can't afford anyone and other teams can field half a rep side. The idea is though that these hypothetical contracts that would lead to further accusations would be eliminated as players will go to the highest bidder. Teams and players will be in negotiations, fans will know this and as a result we'll know who's offering what.

    The NBA and NFL have open salary caps and fans never question the integrity of deals. Teams and fans are well aware certain players get paid what they do, when they do.

    Plus thats not necessarily what the response would be, it would be more that fans would be pissed at their team for paying overs. People are less likely to question a transparent number than a hidden one.

    End of the day players would also have better leverage in negotiations and the market would be more efficient. There'd be less ridiculous steals and overpays and

    when they do happen, we'll know its because the player or team was in a good/bad spot.

    Definitely unintentional. Legit thought it was Crighton, never even thought about it possibly being anything else haha

    Crieghton and Creighton get a run fairly often in that chat too.

    Chrichton and possibility of Woods/Tapau is just a shit strawberry on top of the shit cake. It was already fucked when they signed both Cronk and Tedesco at the same time on $1M+ deals.

    Apparently Bird is out for the season, needs an operation on his sternum. Hopefully he wants to recover in Sydney with a new club.
  9. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Bird is a capable of being a Test centre. Hopefully he doesn’t fade away.
  10. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    I'd be happy for Brisbane to pay him as a test centre, 350k-450k. Not a fucking top 3 halfback.
  11. Alec AD Funkotron

    Well, hopefully he delivers next season with a full pre season and fully/mostly recovered from his shoulder and sternum injuries.
  12. Wilson SB Wilson

    Lol 350-400k for a test centre. Quit the weed bruh
  13. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Centre is the position with the least value in todays game.
  14. Wilson SB Wilson

    You're talking test centre money.
  15. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

  16. Magic AJ Parker

    Real test centres get fullback money.
  17. Wilson SB Wilson

    Quit the weed bruh
  18. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Woods now at Sharks.
  19. Wilson SB Wilson

    Like it for every year other than this current one. Presents a serious clutter of middle forwards, and generally long minute forwards in total.

    Prior - NSW starting prop -> Reserve grade
