    And he is actually very humble, something DCE doesn’t seem to be.

    Had a listen to the podcast.

    The beeping machine would have been worn out by the end if it was used. Watmough does love a swear or two... hundred.

    At least he doesn't bash his Mrs or do a rape crawl after scoring a try

    I remember reading articles in the Manly Daily about this at the time & felt DCE was well within his rights.

    2010 signs with Manly on the Minimum Award ($60k per year I believe..?) & played with Manly’s feeder club in QLD Cup that year. Won QLD Cup Rookie & Player of Year.

    2011 relocated to Sydney as starting halfback where he held the position all season. DCE won Dally M Rookie & Manly won the Grand Final. I think he even got a game for the Kangaoos?

    Still being paid $65k. I would think it more than reasonable to request an upgrade to his salary - most clubs budget for this.

    For Watmough & the other Senior Players to expect DCE to continue on Min Award is absurd. The Senior Players were probably taking a pay cut of 10% off their $500-600k (Pay cut $50-60k). However the market for a decent half then was probably $600-700k (Pay cut $440-540) - not really apples-with-apples??

    I’m not a Manly supporter - just feel like the bloke is not getting fair go with this story.

    Current contract, form, Hastings etc - are separate issues.

    So much discussion over the most overpaid player in the comp.

    Even Bird is better value than DCE..

    No just screwed your beloved club over more than once and ruined the reputation of a club legend in the process.

    What is a rape crawl by the way? Apart from a inaccurate deflection

    9 counts of wrong there chump

    The owners pulled the contract which got a hefty raise once Foreskin showed his true colors

    A rape crawl is that thing wife basher does as a post try celebration that some idiots thinks looks like a lizard, however given the rape face he pulls doing it, it's a rape crawl

    Bird, Foran or DCE? Tough call on biggest waste of money for 2018!

    With players salaries rocketing I think we will see more and more expectation on players from fans and media, after all if youre getting a million bucks shouldnt we expect more?

    It isn’t my team how the team is right now it makes no difference to me, but DCE has played Manly well.

    Not as well as old man winter up there has held the cows back only delivering 2 grand final appearances for one win and JT has historically taken a higher percentage of the cap than DCE commanding near 1 mil a year whilst Orford was on half that

    Furthermore now the origin team is in ruination due to Thurston not liking his successor

    But what should we expect from a troglodyte who can't string a sentence together without 3 cliches and an assload of um yeah or yeah nah

    Enjoy the final years bro

    Watmoung is a bitter tool.

    DCE form has fallen greatly, mind you he hasn't had a decent 5/8 outside him since Foran..

    He was ok last year with Blake Green.

    I don't think he was anything but honest with the club in regards to his contractual situation. I mean, Foran had clearly agreed to terms with the Eels months before but instead of being honest with the club was waiting for DCE to sign so he could pin the blame on him being forced out of the club. That was the real scum move of that whole saga.

    He definitely is not earning his keep at the moment but it is hardly his fault the club gave him so much cash.

    He is a million dollar player and should be delivering much more. He was putrid last week.
