    I think Dogtime was suggesting he retire voluntarily and then come out of retirement in 2021 with Manly. I’d fully support that

    Not only is Foz refusing to retire, he stated he’s aiming to be back July-August, thus before season ends.

    This will make the argument that we’ve lost him for the whole season hard to argue, and any extra pro-rata relief harder to quantify.

    You are right. The fact is he has nothing to offer to negotiate for a new contract. Selfish Person. Needs to find new employment. The club has supported him but now needs to stand up for our club and supporters

    We need someone with high influence to help us fight it and never give up keep going

    it’s like me I’m trying to get out of a special Ed Unit into mainstream and they indicate no but I never give up

    Where is the conga line of offended media journalists decrying their clubs for being bad role models for young players and an insult to the game?

    I could be wrong, but there may be off-field issues with Burgess that, if they come to light, would reflect on the Bunnies. He may have been pushed to distance him from the club.
    If anything does blow up in the future, we can be thankful there are no images of him in a Bulldogs jersey.

    the whole signing of foran is a huge question mark, the bloke was full of ongoing injuries before we signed him, huge price, and a liability,
    either way the bulldogs got dudded and we are paying 1 million dollars for a bloke who could breakdown tying up his shoelace

    I totally agree and feel everyone’s frustration in regards to this issue
    We are upset that Foran won’t do the right thing by us and call it a day
    Then also pissed at the useless NRL rules/regulations
    At the end of the day it’s our previous coach & administration who endorsed a broken down player with a clear history,
    Gave him a totally ridiculous contract which was inflated beyond belief
    The impact of him hardly taking the field and salary cap space being occupied is disgraceful to say the least
    Unfortunately this crazy saga is far from finished
    I’m confident our current staff have more sense and are moving in the right direction

    Always felt that we should utilise Union or a rebel competition as leverage against these fuckwits.
    The punishment we received was unprecedented and nothing of similar size handed down since!
    I've nil love for the NRLol due to their absolute lack of respect for us as fans, supporters and indeed in rare cases, players.
    The people that made the decisions suffered the least, whilst the ones that had absolutely zero to do with it, suffered the most and they simply didn't give a fuck!
    In closing FUCK THE NRL!

    It's kinda reverse engineering the situation. Now the NRL have implemented an insurance policy, time to game it.

    Wholeheartedly agree .. testing the legalities of this is what I can't wait to see play out. Very interesting and hope the club initiate the challenge on behalf of entire clubland of NRL.
