    Contracted players can be let go for numerous reasons. It's semi-pro sport. All clubs do it. An explanation has already been given in an earlier post as to why so many extra players were brought to the club.

    Blacktown are a basket case. That's pretty clear. They were before their coach who was sacked came there and they are again.

    So what. They were allowed to go to other clubs and not stopped from playing like other clubs do. Get over it.
    Also your posts about 120 players being signed - dribble.
    Boards have to approve and sign all contracts and submit to nswrl - the buck stops with them.

    This is the best thing I have read on this forum. The above is the 100‰ truth. Believe what you want but those involved in the shit storm know what went down. It's easy to sit there behind a keyboard with an opinion. Which is fine as it creates healthy discussions but when rumours and alike are being thrown around that are completely untrue disgust me.

    I would like to see any of you deal with what Pat and his staff were put through at Blacktown after the years of work that was put in there to build that club up, most out of their own pockets. It's a credit to Pat and his staff that they are back in the game. I say good luck to them some of the best blokes u will meet.

    Hey Sharkie Boy, how do you know they put their own money into it? I dont imagine that would be well known by too many people. It's an interesting one.

    Know of any other clubs where coach or staff have done this? Kingsgoive were perhaps one? Any others? ;-)

    I know for a fact that at least two other Ron Massey Club coachs put alot of money into the teams they coach.

    The disappointing thing is people don't realise the dollars Pat and his staff put into building a gym and supplying all the equipment for that gym upgrading the sheds and much more. It disgusts me the way they were shown the door.

    Yep Blacktown certainly screwed them over. It' a shame, but good people bounce back!

    Personally, though, I don't agree with coaches putting their own money in but sometimes there's no choice. What should NEVER be allowed, is for players to know this. It skewers the relationship and gives that coach an influence he shouldn' have. It also makes for non-real evaluation of themselves and others.

    no big loss for Cabramatta only plays 10 mins anyway, See Cabra started pre season yesterday. Hope Yatesy can handle the interfering board and let him run it his way with the staff he wants.
