How though? The Dogs are desperate and offering crazy money to buy players. They outbid the Eels to sign him, and if we had matched their $650k a season, they would of just offered more.
Gould doesn’t worry about the salary cap, because he thinks he can just shaft contracted players later and move them on.
You make a fair point that the Dogs might’ve offered crazy money, but I think the attraction of playing at a club with the NSW state of origin halves offers a fair amount of sway. But my main gripe is we didn’t properly prioritise the hooker position, we tried to re-sign Kikau first. Now we lost Capewell, Kikau and Api.
