    Gee, the Telegraph really couldn't hide their agenda any better, could they.

    I can just imagine if it was a chairman that they loved was retiring, and all the NRL did for them was buy them a cake and say "See ya later". Next day's headline reads "No Respect Shown from NRL towards Legendary Chairman".

    We'll see won't we, but this bloke has a track record of riding the gravy train for all it's worth. He's been an absolute failure as chairman as well.

    Gurr might just be saying that to try and have more leverage with agents in negotiation though.

    Gurr is playing games, yeah we probably don't have millions left but I reckon we have enough for another "quality" player as well a a fringe player.

    Do you really think we were keeping a spot for semi for 2018, with only enough cap space for a player or 2 on the minimum amount?

    Mannah isn't on $600k plus!! BA isnt that stupid!!

    You severely underestimate the greed of humanity.
    People always want more, u can guarantee yoy that majority if people that make 300k+ a year want 400k+ and etc

    I recall when Mannah last signed a new contract. It dragged on, and there was talk about looking elsewhere. His form was also at a low. Id say Tim was offered quite a reduced contract to previous one.
    He eventually signed after weighing up options. I dare say he didnt get many better ones. Most fans of other clubs laugh ast Mannah. That is what they think of him. I doubt he would of been high demand and the eels would of known this. His previous contract may of been 500k but I highly doubt this one is.My guess is around 350k.
    I reckon you could find someone who would offer better value at that price but its not overs for Mannah. Club captain, great morals and person. Sets a good tone.
