But, you can blame him. He had made an agreement to stay at the Broncos under a set amount. Broncs cannot downgrade his pay if he plays shit. Nor should he be able to upgrade his already very fair pay.This is all the Broncos doing we've heard for years that players at the Broncos will take pay cuts to play at the club, suddenly here is a player who isn't sailing in the same direction, he wants more can't blame him.
If he was to switch clubs, any contract he signs the NRL will need to use the whole 'notional value' thing they pluck out when it suits them. Considering his salary is essentially public knowledge and all.
Haaa....I see what you did there...Only a totally f**king stupid club run by a moron, would pay out a bloke after he himself requested a release.
Brisbane seemed happy to accommodate Tallis & organise for the Thoroughbreds to ensure he wasn't behinbd financially for the season he threw his tantrum. I wonder why some brisbane fans have turned their responses 180 degrees?This is ridiculous, Because Broncos refuse to upgrade his contract he is asking for an immediate release?
Does he know what a contract is?
I love how players bitch and moan about clubs holding them to their contracts but when they are busted on one leg and can't play anymore they hold clubs to their contracts.
Considering the author, take the below article with a grain of salt. Make of it, what you will.
Rebel with a clause: Why Payne Haas wants out of the BroncosPayne Haas was ready to walk out on the Broncos on Wednesday night – and not for the reasons anyone has touched on. Haas emailed the club requesting an immediate release and he had to be calmed down as he threatened to walk there and then. Performance clauses, not cold, hard cash are the sticking points for a success-hungry Haas.
Payne Haas has dropped a bombshell on the Brisbane Broncos by requesting an immediate release from his contract. The giant Bronco has been painted as disloyal and money-hungry, but it is the Broncos who put a rich six-year deal in front of him. However, Haas wants to extend his deal for three more years, not six. He wants $1 million for next year and 2024, and he’s asking for $1.2million for 2025. The best forwards in the game get seven-figure deals.
What is causing an issue is that Haas wants premierships. Or, at the very least, he wants to be playing finals. In four seasons in the top grade he has appeared in one play-off game, Brisbane’s infamous 58-0 loss to Parramatta in 2019.
Haas wants to be able to get out of his deal if they don’t make the top eight in year one of his new deal, or in year two if they don’t make the top six, and in year three if they don’t make the top four.
The Broncos should have similar goals, but they must privately fear they won’t get there. The club doesn’t want anything to do with Haas’ performance clauses, and that has upset the big front-rower.
The clauses are certainly unique, but they aren’t motivated by greed; they are based on his frustration with years of failure. The Broncos are a team on the rise, and should not fear clauses that are based on success, but they clearly do. Readers of this column have been aware for months that Haas has been unsettled. When the reports were widespread that he was locked in for six years, we warned that they were a long way off the mark. Haas has rejected that deal and is now taking legal action against his agent. Haas is now far more aware of his worth and clear about his goals, as he takes charge of his life.
