    There is so much wrong with that article.

    So Lodge wants to stay at Red Hill? He hasn't even got there yet, having played all his NRL career at West Tigers for a big fat 12 games.

    So Lodge is on the minimum of $85000 a year? I suppose that might free up some money so Bennett can pay off his New York debt quicker.

    Or keep some bail money aside when Lodge and Jimmy the Jet go on a rampage together at the Normanby after the Donkeys' first Friday night game in Round 1 in 2018.

    Oh shit.....my bad. Donkeys play the Dragons at Jubilee on the Thursday night as the 2018 season opener.

    Change the Normanby to the Carlton Pub on the corner of Jubilee Avenue and Railway Parade.

    If it still exists......

    Yeah, but when it impacts a young, naïve young girl who was a close family friend it becomes personal. And yeah, I know Gilly's playing history as he was one of my favourite players back in the day, along with Geno. Him going to the Crushers and then replacing Mario Fenech as captain made it an easy decision to jump on board.

    the TPA system is completely f**ked when a volatile player can turn down 1.5M for 100k + chance "to earn more later."

    seriously who the f**k does that? not even fitzdarius would be that dumb.

    fans are sick of the lack of transparency with tpa deals, especially when they know they're being taken by the nrl for fools.

    its actually a shame he is a piece of shit because if he stayed on path he'd be one of the games best by now, his a bloody fine player.

    Right so if it's a family friend it's disgraceful. Any other girl though is all good yeah?

    That reasoning only works if you think it's the only reason he's staying in Brisbane, which it isn't. Bennett and the Broncos have been meeting with him and working on his mental state and well being for a year now. I know in this day and age it's impossible to understand loyalty but he obviously wants to show some to those who looked after him when he was down.

    You can make up any crap you want... The difference is 1.4m and the bloke is broke...

    Dribbling bs to justify that is delusion at its finest

    It's certainly a questionable decision to turn down 1.4mill for 85k when one owes 1.6mill.

    I thought it depicted the number they can fit in a cubicle.

    I would just like to take this opportunity to congratulate Matt Lodge for joining the most successful club in the NRL, whilst other teams like the Roosters and the Buydogs are doing whatever possible (which is not limited to blatantly cheating the cap), we are giving blokes a fair go.

    Well done Matt.

    lol @ these guys having loyalty to those that look after them when they are down. Look what the Knights did for Packer when he hadn't even played one game for them, then when he was released from Jail his loyalty took him to a bigger paypacket at the dragons. These guys don't do loyalty they do money.

    why can no-one do math here? It's 1.4mil over 3 years compared to roughly 100K for 1 year. Perhaps the Broncos might offer him an extension of 1mil over the next 2 years if he performs well. Then he will have a comparable deal over 3 years and not be collecting a bunch of wooden spoons. Plus he has a better chance of making rep teams if he plays for the Broncos, collecting more $$.

    This is assuming that Rothfield is even accurate.....

    Well Rothfield has never let the truth get in the way of dirt dishing.
