    Imagine being on 350k busting your gut over 80 of Nrl, win a man of the match award. Next day turn on the TV to watch a Cup game and see Packer, Reynolds and Matalino running around on 700k each

    Great player but save money for Fifita.

    As has been mentioned, we are fairly well stocked with current NRL player being Jackson, Stimson and CHN. Who knows what Doorey, Topine and Pitovao can be with an NRL Preseason as well.

    As much as I agree with you anyone can ask for a pay rise anytime. Right after signing or before renewal. Not saying it’s right but you can. Whether your boss entertains the idea or not is a different story. Some clubs may be happy to pay someone at a lower amount and get away with it until asked for an increase and then they usually oblige or let them go. Agree though he shouldn’t have signed on the cheap if he thought he was worth more at the time

    Yeah it's getting to the point where contracts are becoming a joke. The NRL seems to have taken the softest stance in the world regarding the anti tampering rules as far as I can see.

    Of course they can! Totally within their rights. But, NRL clubs facilitate the problem. And not just the club that gives them an upgrade. The clubs that line up to sign them encourage this type of request!
    SBW did this to us, and what do you think of him? A contract is a contract in my eyes. Sure, you can try to renegotiate it, but by allowing this to happen you also encourage it to happen.

    This situation, and many others, only reinforces the fact that they are all playing (substantially) for the money.

    Clubs shop you, drop you, move you on early etc and some pay ridiculous money to bludgers while other better players don't get paid anywhere near as much.

    With the money involved nowday, the injuries in later life etc, then this situation with SBW, Barba, Klem, Matterson (there's heaps) will continue to happen and now part of the game.

    It’s fucked. People whinge about loyalty. This is a prime example of its dead. The player signed the deal. His manager source the deal. It’s his fault he signed a 3 year deal. If you want more money. Sign 2 year deals and evaluate at the end of the contract.

    Same as the Klemmer situation. He done his OWN contract and then his missus had a whinge because he sold himself short and had signed for 4 years. Managers are running the game and the NRL has to step in. It will never be perfect. But the way it is at the moment is ridiculous.

    If I’m the Tigers I’m telling him too bad. If you want to sulk. Go sit in reserves for 2 years. These young players want everything f given to them on a silver platter. Fuck em

    You're right, but fuck the moral high ground in this instance - it's on the NRL to fix this bullshit

    Granted leave for personal reasons. No denials he has been unhappy especially with his contract.

    Funny how they have no objections when they sign a good deal and they start to perform okay then wants more money and is chucking a tanty....

    $350k when they signed him and that was commensurate with his performances....next year 425K sounds like another Klemmer...

    But then this from the lurker....

    Good to see eels will get raped by cap again soon. I mean if they didn’t take their spoons what’s to lose?

    If it happens they need to look at them again.

    Not saying it being sour they are clearly up to it again. Couldn’t get it right first time so went again.
