    Foran says his best playing years are ahead of him and he won't retire until it's taken from him.

    Your mind can tell you that but physically you have no say in the matter. Listen to your body Kieran not your head

    Agreed!
    How about investing in a decent halves coach????
    Shifty at the very least on the FT coaching staff would be a start...

    Criminal that we haven't put more time and effort into this vital aspect of building a successful team.

    If that is our option, then better cogger than sezer.....although every time he has played us he carved us up

    Yeah but that's largely due to his kicks in the corner and how passive we were on the edges with Hasler in charge. I was on the Sezer wagon a while ago but the GF really highlighted his deficiencies

    What a mess...
    Foran came to Canterbury a broken man mentally and physically,
    Canterbury lived up to the expectations and treated him like family.
    His mate Hitler the cause of our problems, destroyed our playing roster and salary cap as if it was deliberately done, signing Foran was a final stamp of his great work at our club,
    Kieran...Do you honestly believe you are worth a $1ml a season in the state your in ?
    Isn't it time you started thinking beyond the DOLLAR sign ?
    Or are you going to take the money and run back to Manly like your friend the mad scientist did ?
    I don't wish you or anyone any harm...But I stopped feeling sorry !!!

    Unfortunately he confirrms that he is riding it out using the club up till the end.

    “This is my last contract at the Bulldogs. I have to rehab my shoulder and try to get back out on the field and prove to people I am still playing at this level and hope I can pick up a deal for the following year, or however long I manage to stay in the game. That’s what I want to be doing.”

    And bugger you sucker Bulldogs.

    If that's his approach, his legacy at the Dogs will be a sad sorry one, with little to nil respect for him whatsoever.
    Also kissing goodbye to any post playing career options at the club too, as who wants a selfish arsehole like that around?

    A lot of hate for Foran on here which I don't necessarily agree with.

    Get that we're all angry as he's taking up so much of our salary cap and has played so few games for us. Ideally he'd retire, that's for sure. But at the same time he's a person and has a desire to continue. Who are we to say he shouldn't? This is his passion. If someone told me to give up wanking I'd tell them to bugger off!

    What does he owe the club? Let's be honest here.

    Yes we signed him on overs but that's not his mistake. Yes, we stuck by him during the injuries but we were obliged to.Yes we gave him personal attention, but we're the family club so that's part of the business. It's not great how it turned out for him and us, but we chose to sign him for that much knowing his injury record. We made that decision. Why blame him?

    Get we're all angry. I am too! On his day Foran is outstanding and a real leader on our team. Will be missed. But the fact we signed him in the first place, and for so much ...! At the end of the day we made out bed we've got to suck it up and sleep in it.

    Simples.

    What if you were told to give up wanking and if you didn't, you wouldn't be able to enjoy sex ever again due to medical reasons?

    I have no sympathy for him. He should never have played for NZ. Pure selfishness and absolutely no consideration for the club after all it has done to support him and get his health back. And what did he say? He worked so hard to get back in the New Zealand side. What a wanker. And then he said he would play for free. I don't see him offering to forego his $1m salary and all the medical and rehab expenses. Another Manly retirement benefit signing by Des.

    Two options

    Medical retirement; or
    Club putting the pressure on him quietly to make sure he knows that the club doesn't see him in it's future plans and that if he chooses to play on in 2021 that he will be doing it in reserve grade.
