    Players retiring and having a job after football is completely different to Inglis' situation. Steve Turner was contracted for 2012 and got fully paid for his final season he didn't have a deal after that.

    Inglis still had a couple of years on his million dollar deal and the NRL allowed them to write off the majority of the deal and pay him $300k a year to work at the club. That $300K is on Souths cap.

    Good one Hilly - keeping your friends close and your enemies (ie: the press) closer - just give them little bits here and there and keep it vague - as you do.
    Maybe there'll be an announcement on Jacko at the Member Forum on Wednesday - or some other interesting stuff....bring it on.

    Simple fact. For had one year left on his deal. Burgess had 3 years. If Foran was on our books for another 3 like burgess taking him to 32 on a mill a season for that duration, I am sure he would be happy to medically retire and sit at the beach.

    Any finger pointing should be directed at the previous inept management who negotiated and signed up a player with a clear medical history.
    It’s hard to fathom how a multi million dollar organisation who has specialists and professionals at their disposal could allow this to happen.
    This could go down as the biggest failure in regards to money/services
    Trying to silence or control him will not change a single thing.
    A terrible situation overall.

    This is the way I look at it. Yes different situations BUT it always looks like the NRL will do anything to help South's.

    Old twat face wrote a letter for G.I and his court case. Then twat face has a private meeting with Goonie face Burgess. I don't give a fuck what anyone says if they were in the same position we are in now, twat face Greenturd would be literally bending over backwards to help poor poor Souths.

    I now Zappy was "paid" but that's not the question, what's important is whether it was included in the salary cap or not?

    Turners full contract was included in the cap and they trained him up in social media. I’m not sure why you bought this up because it’s completely irrelevant to the Inglis deal.

    I would never keep the good members of the Kennel waiting until Thursday morning @wendog33 :-)
    I'd just prefer not to feed the trolls - but since most of them are blocked and a few are banned, it should be a happy enough thread.
    Should I run a poll first - public or PM forum update? ;-)

    Polls dont work well on here.

    Go public :grinning: will be a great thread with sensible pros and cons.

    Ha - wasn’t serious about a poll :-)

    OK watch for the thread Wednesday evening - don’t know what time yet, but it will happen before everyone on here turns into a pumpkin.

    Agree, Jewburg loves South's. He'll polish their knob anyway possible.

    Also :tearsofjoy: Goonie face....

    Burgess sure does look like Sloth now you mentioned it.

    Bulldogs fan here: NRL is fucked! Clearly bulldogs gave them a cursory wave of the middle finger in the early 2000’s and to this day hold a grudge. Todd balding greenturd used the club to get somewhere in NRL!

    There's no point of getting frustrated. As long as we are in an NRL led competition the dogs will get rorted. It's us against them! We will never get any respect from this organisation, which has ruined this once great sport... get used to it!

    The only fault I put on the club is they should have taped Forans mouth shut "Animal Kingdom" style. That's a Netflix series btw. It's awesome!! Sorry I digress.

    Foran, unlike Burgess and Inglis screwed us over the moment he said he won't retire. From that moment we were never going to get him medically retired.

    The question now has to be asked, come round 13 when we get the $350k grant and Foran comes out and say's the shoulder hasn't healed as expected and that he is no longer capable of playing anymore. How would that sit with everyone? I'd be pissed off big time because like everyone is saying he should be medically retired now so we can make a big name signing. Instead we have to wait a full season at least and just hope a top level player is available.
