    Their own doctor rejected their application because he knew it was not justified

    Not Souths fault, get over it

    No they don’t. They just took the money and ran.

    Sam will be employed and be a great value to the club

    Not blaming Souths ,they are clearly playing the game that the NRL allow them to play.... hhopefully the other clubs get to cash in this chip every year too.

    Didn’t they just get the cash and not have to work ten years for it? Seems like a worse deal sams got.

    Cant wait for Arrow to sign with Souths.

    The strong get stronger , the weak get weaker, all seemingly facilitated by our illustrious leader.

    There's no consistency. It's just weird.

    There’s no game mate. Broncos got Gillett. Tigers got Matulino. Eels got Watmough

    I think we may get Arrow. Cross fingers for Fifita. Why in gods name would anyone want to stay with that idiot Seibold and the Broncos

    By the way. We never get favours from the NRL, We usually get shafted as clearly seen when we were corruptly thrown out Of the comp because of Murdoch’s money

    As explained earlier, this situations differ from Burgess as they were new injuries that occured in their last year, unlike the Souths situation where Burgess was resigned and did further damage to a shoulder that had already undergone multiple procedures.

    You have a right to be pissed off

    We all knew the outcome of this decision a month back and that it would occur quickly.

    I’m pretty confident Sam would have been too proud to take the money had they not been confident of getting the exemption.

    So if the NRL is accepting it’s a career ending injury, why do Souths need to pay burgess for this “job” if burgess is insured against a career ending injury and would be getting paid out.

    mid it’s not considered an insurance pay out the NRL shouldn’t be ruling that it is career ending

    You may not want it to be but it’s a new injury from my understanding.
