    probably makes the LM move more likely, and for next year I would guess

    Not sure if you guys know but Foran has done his shoulder.

    What do you guys think? I know it's a bit from left field but has anyone thought of trying to medically retire him?

    Just a thought?

    Also fuck the club and fuck the selectors who let him play for nz when this was going to be his best preseason in recent times

    also fuck Shaun Johnson for being so shit that Foran was picked in the first place

    It's a good point. Who the FK allowed him to play in this rep game? I know it's his right by default to play, but someone from the club should have been putting some very fkn hard words on him and reminding him how much his contract is worth in 2020 and that his responsibility is to the Bulldogs first and foremost.

    I understand and to an extent support what you are saying.
    I have appreciated and even defended Foz, his skills and desire to get back on the park, but at some point it has to become untenable.
    With the cap mess we have endured, it is really not fair on the club to have $1.2m constantly off the park.

    We also don't want to come across where people with broken bodies to come and collect a paycheck from.

    I would be happy if Foz and the cub could come to a happy agreement for him to join the coaching ranks like Inglis did

    I think this is a great idea while he's recovering but he's too fit to retire. He's got so much more to give on the field

    There is no way Foran is going to retire with one year left on his contract. He will do the reconstruction and play the back half of the season, or at least until he gets injured again. Pretty pointless getting worked up about it. There is also very little chance he will get resigned.

    What the club should be doing is making a lot of noise to the NRL about other clubs who are dodging the spirit of the salary cap by ditching players (some with years left on their contracts) who are at the back end of their careers and get an injury that requires a long lay off.

    I think the fact that he will only miss about 10 week's of footy is enough for Foran to think he can have some input in the season. He is known to be a quick healer so he could return sooner.

    This injury though could shatter his confidence in defence with teams running his way. Does Pay play him? This is a serious problem Pay will have to decide on. Does Pay play his million dollar man to earn his salary and risk weakening our defence or stick with our up and comers?

    Many players (still contracted) have retired knowing their body can't handle it anymore but also being mindful that hanging around is holding back a young kid coming through. It's a tough decision for Foran to make. Get his $1.2 million or retire? Let's face it, you and I will stick around if there is no other option. This is where the club needs to come up with a deal best for both parties. It's ethically the best scenario for Foran and the club.
