GIVE HIM ANOTHER CONTRACT
Nighty is love.
Nighty is life.
Nightingale is our man.
No let him go out a winner this year.
Comparing Jason Nightingale with Josh Dugan is like comparing a good bar with a cubic circonia
Nightingale bleeds red and white.
Does he not qualify for salary cap exception anyway??
Comparing JASON. NIGHTINGALE to. Josh Dugan is like comparing Jennifer Hawkins to Pauline hanson
Comparing JASON NIGHTINGALE to Josh Dugan is like comparing the taj Mahal to your backyard outhouse
just let his pet bunny out of the pot, and we won't say another word about it....
everyone will be all good, yeah?
When he does retire I hope the club look after him and give him a position associated with football department. You don't put good men like him on
the scrap heap, they are to hard to come by
The loyalty we show as fans is lost these days amongst the playing group... Guys like Jason and Thurston who resigned with the Cows are fantastic exceptions to the rule
Give him fullback money
I think it is a case of 150k of his salary is not counted under the cap i.e. if Nightingale is on 350k, only 200k is counted under the cap. Same goes for De Belin.
As quoted from https://www.nrl.com/nrlhq/referencecentre/salarycap/tabid/10434/default.aspx
"Also included is a Long Serving Player Allowance ($300K) per Club for eligible players who have played more than six continuous years of grade football with that club including Holden Cup and NSW Cup."
In principle you are correct as off the top of my head, Flo and JDB are the only two players that currently fit into that category. From what I have seen with the EBA from the RLPA and NRL, this is supposedly to increase to around 400k.
As for Flo, God love his cotton socks. A true Red V legend and I stick by my opinion in that he deserves at least another year and should go out on his terms. I could not see him being that guy who plays a season too long. He is a shining example of a player showing nothing but loyalty and respect for the club and its fans which is seriously lacking in this day and age. The club should now show that loyalty back in turn.
He will cost very little salary cap.
As he is a long term player a except.
I thinks 150k .
Knowing the Dragons they will probably make him coach or some other job he is unqualified for.
