Where's Fuimaono in your team, you stated he was genuine 1st grade material?
We are very long odds to sign Fafita. The Titans offer is massive and something we just couldnt match for a 2nd rower. Also now with the Roosters showing interest why would he come here to our sh*t show, consideringvit would be the same reason he would leave the Broncos
Am I reading right that the Roosters have thrown there tuppence into the ring to get Fifita or showing some interest. Wow and holy cow, I mean cash cow, that would be the meanest thing that would happen.
This is the reason why there has to be some other form of restriction on a wealthy club getting the better players all of the time. Not so much as a Draft system but something similar.
I have read that:-
Primarily, an effective salary cap prevents wealthy teams from certain destructive behaviours such as signing a multitude of high-paid star players to prevent their rivals from accessing these players, and ensuring victory through superior economic power. With a salary cap, each club has roughly the same economic power to attract players, which contributes to parity by producing roughly equal playing talent in each team in the league, and in turn brings economic benefits to the league and to its individual teams.
The NRL needs to ensure a degree of parity between teams so that games are exciting for the fans and not a foregone conclusion. The leagues that have adopted salary caps generally do so because they believe letting richer teams accumulate talent affects the quality of the sporting product they want to sell: if only one or a handful of dominant teams are able to win consistently and challenge for the championship, many of the contests will be blowouts by the superior team, reducing the sport's attractiveness for fans at the stadium and viewers on television. Television revenue is an important part of the income of many sports.
Who would the Roosters give up to sign Fifita? or should I say what players would they say goodbye to so that they can pay for Fifita.
