    So if it wasn't Stuart who was it ? Surely not SK?

    Loko was re-signed last year.

    Anyway it's all sensationalist bullshit. We only have a dozen players contracted for 2016, eleven if Mossop's option is in the club's favour:

    De Gois
    Edwards
    Hunt
    Mannah
    Matterson
    Ma'u
    Mossop
    Norman
    Paulo (Junior)
    Peats
    Radradra
    Toutai

    We're doing pretty poorly if we're already near the $6.8M cap with this mob. It's not even half a squad.

    do you think not having a football manager with a rookie coach (SK) might have been part of this problem?

    It's all coming to light now just how much 3P set us back.

    Awesome Parra-bashing ......SNAFU
    We lose three in a row and all of a sudden it's crisis time AGAIN!
    To be placed equal seventh and still a chance of the finals with over two thirds of the season played would be more than any of us could have hoped for before a ball was kicked.
    At this point if we can secure wins against Raiders (twice) Sharks and Newy that would put us at 28 points.....I'd be happy with that given the last three years of tripe

    LOL, how the hell were we so close to signing Folou last year even BEFORE the purge if it was really that bad?

    I seriously doubt that the coach sets the amount players are to be paid. He would set out who he wants and the club would need to contract with each player.

    I would say the blame for this is shared equally between Nolan, Edwards, Osborne and Bentley.

    Not sure, but the secret to moving players on mid contract is getting it reported that the club WANTS to move them on, not HAS to move them on. Very little bargaining power when you appear to be down to your final option in terms of balancing your cap.

    I've never understood the theory behind moving players on and paying half (for example) of their salary to play for another club anyway. false economy if you ask me.

    They'd have to have some say though. How would he structure his side, and even work out a recruitment strategy if he didn't give an amount that he wanted to pay for a new recruit.

    Exactly. The coach would have a big say.

    All this article tells me is that we are going to be VERY active in the player market next season for 2016.

    Oh and that we were crap in managing the cap since at least 2009.

    BA: " I want 2 back rowers, and a centre. Just some stop gappers in case of injury. Try Dean Halatau, Todd Lowrie and Blake Ayshford."

    CEO two weeks later: "Done, we've just signed all three. All to 4 years, $800k/season deals.

    BA: "f**k me, no wonder I'm bald and on the verge of a stroke".

    Yep, that sounds about right.

    Pretty sure the article is referring to us be in the same situation for 2015 and coming out of the problem in 2016.

    What 'problem' are we in for 2015? We have almost the same squad as this year, except all our young players will be a year older, stronger and more experienced.

    As for this year, we were comfortably in the top eight before injury hit. We have better backs than most clubs. There's nothing wrong with our squad this year or next year, and in 2016 it will be even better.
