    For the performing teams that are an attraction not just because of money you mean. If we were a top four team in the competition we could recruit like those "cap cheats" too...

    Because like most professional sports the players are the income.

    No players, no games, no TV rights or sponsorship = no money.

    V'landys could be the best admin guy in the world but he can't kick tackle or score a try.

    However if we take the % differential between what the current contract is and multiply by the amount forgone between the 2020 broadcast deal and the 2021 broadcast deal and take away the cap space by having unfilled roster positions then divide the difference by the average forgone salary in 2020 then add the average difference between a representative player post covid with the salaries of CHN and JO then we should be right to compete aggressively in the market.

    But only because there is the implied promise of being a high value player if you are part of that successful side. Either way, it comes down to money:
    1. Take a high paid offer with a lesser club.
    2. Sign up for less money with a top side, and gamble that you will eventually be offered a high paying contract with them, or go to a lesser club.

    Players have to be aware that their high value is only good for around ten years on average. How much they are happy to be paid less than they're worth is up to them. If they can invest and grow their income, then playing for less is not a big issue. But, they don't know how long they have in the top grade due to the risk of injury. Best to go for top dollar while it's on offer. A smart player should always have his eye on what comes after playing in the NRL.

    Earnings = Market rate x Consistent performance, squared.

    Until the club makes several very good signings.. the jury will be out on the ability of our front office to attract star players..
