    Just read dogs are trying to retire foran.
    If allowed this is a big rort. They forked out massive overs for a player that hadnt produced for 3 years, now they are looking to cheat imagine who they will be chasing to replace him creating havoc to other teams making secret offers disrupting rosters.

    How is it a rort if he gets independently assessed before it's allowed?

    Not so much a rort as it is a joke.

    I don't think for a second that the NRL will approve this but the evidence would need to be pretty compelling that the injury is something new and means that he can no longer play.

    Otherwise, it would just mean that your due diligence could suck completely and you can still get away with it.

    Everyone else has known that Foran was a fraud of a player for years. Just because the Dogs have worked this out twelve months into a three year deal, doesn't mean they should be able to weasel out of the last two years.

    To be honest, I'm not happy about them being able to weasel out of deals for Woods, Mbye and the Morris twins either.

    They signed these stupid, back ended agreements and in the process, helped to ratchet up the prices that other players can now seek in the same positions.

    They should be made to honor the deals, even if it means they are non competitive for the next few years.

    I'd be with you if it was the current administration who signed him.

    The Morris twins are off contract. They don't belong on that list mate.

    Again, previous administration signed these deals, plus I don't think they'd be able to afford 30 players in the squad (which by NRL rules they need to) for 2019 if they didn't jettison some of these players.

    I remember last year when they signed Woods and Foran, the NRL wouldn't register the deals until the Dogs showed them how they would be able to register these guys and then still be cap compliant.

    I'm sure that part of the solution they showed the NRL at the time wouldn't have been to jettison both these guys in less than 12 months.

    Thing is, these big back ended deals affect the entire player market place. They ratchet up the prices for other players in similar positions so for the Dogs to do this and then back out in short time, essentially stuffs up everyone else.

    If you sign a four year deal with a player like Woods for example, you shouldn't have to back out of it in year one just to be cap compliant. It's an out and out joke.

    Totally different administration at the Dogs mate.

    No Dib, no Castle, no Hasler.

    The current crew are just cleaning up that mess.

    Having to lose players like James Graham and Moses Mbye while still paying part of their contracts is the punishment for that mismanagement.

    How the mighty have fallen.
    Both Bulldogs and Manly are basket cases at present.
    We know how that feels.
    We were there for many years.
    Makes you appreciate having Russ and Packer on board.
    The supporters of those clubs must be filthy at those who have let their clubs go down the track they've gone.

    Mentioned after his first game this year that I had a feeling this may be on the cards.

    Too useful for some other, more needy teams than us not to be interested in what he can offer.

    That’s a shame if true. We may need him at the pointy end. But it would be good for Robbie to end his career at the Tigers. May even get to bring up is 300 there.
