Would anyone genuinely be happy playing in our side at the moment. Just think of the money Darcy.
why didn't Allgood get a driver to take him home or did he get busted after he got home and then went for a drive?
I don't see how it proves it wasn't cancelled?
Rumour is he got home ok and then went out again.
Did he not read the bits between the asterisks?
Complete overuse of astericks.
Barry, I asked u in another thread, but u didn't answer.
If RS is in negotiation with the raiders, is it possible the eels can terminate his contract without a payout???
it does say it had to be confirmed after the game on Sunday so still could have been cancelled
Sorry, didn't see that.
I doubt it, given the apparent terms of his current contract. In normal circumstances, another club could get into trouble for attempting to induce someone to break a presently binding contract, but a coach with a contract that allows him to walk when he wants is a different issue.
Bear in mind that we don't know the exact wording of Ricky's deal. His release clause will likely be a little more specific than that bandied around in the tabloids (even if it has similar effect). Also, we don't know what other clauses are in the contract. There were reported clauses connected to us making the 8 next year, which people claimed allowed Ricky to choose to leave. I said at the time that if such a clause existed, it would far more likely to refer to the club's option to terminate the coach, for whatever compensation is agreed in the contract. I haven't changed my mind on that.
Anyway, the current situation aint great....now that the apparent release clause is public info, there will be speculation whenever another coaching position is vacant.
Maybe the club just never confirmed it?
Still need to bring through some experience from outside the club. Can't expect to only develop and maintain our playing roster from within totally and be competitive. Need to freshen the club up.
I would certainly rather Prior rather than Rose anyway. Rose is an impact player but his weight issues will start to weigh heavily (no pun intended) on him as his career progresses in terms of injury. We wouldn't necessarily be paying 'overs' as such but I guess we would be paying more than what he can earn at the Storm.
Ricky is gone.
Sticky has quit tonight according to Rothfield

BREAKING: Ricky Stuart has officially quit Parramatta tonight to sign a 3-year deal at Canberra Raiders - details @dailytelegraph ASAP
That will about do me.
Hopefully this will bring the Stuart media circus to a close.
On the other hand, I am now concerned about the ramifications for all of our signings given the speculation about get-out clauses.
Separate names with a comma.
