    I'll put my tin foil hat on and say this

    Its as if Watmough and who ever worked it out before he went there, one of his buddies or whatever.
    You sign a MASSIVE deal for 4 years. Retire one year into the deal because of your dodgy knee. You get paid out for 4 years, we get 700x3 years off our books - you get paid we save the cash - win win.

    Then some legit doctor has said nope - you already had dodgy knees so too bad.

    Then the NRL has fucking bent over backwards and allowed Parra to pay the deal, knowing he had bad knees when they signed him - OFF THE FUCKING CAP. Its a fucking outrage!

    The issue with his knee was a new injury but QBE are saying the previous knee injuries contributed to the new injury.

    All NRL clubs are very nervous about this as 99% of players have existing injuries and if these are all determined to affect a new injury then there is no point in having the insurance.

    Now instead of investing a mil in 1 player (eg Titans with DCE) they can invest a mil in 3/4 quality players (eg the Titans) - which will then lead to the signing of the superstar later down the track.

    Gutherson now has the chance to play fullback - and he will be very fucking good for the club. Hooker and halfback are the problems now...  Maybe they can poach Elgey or Taylor in a few years. Also, Tyrone roberts will be looking for a new home come next season.. he could be an OK stopgap player for the eels.

    So hear is a thought, if Keiran is Ok to return to footy, why don't we join the race to sign him. Can apparently pick him up now for $600k, so we could easily fit him in the Cap. He left to sort out off field issues, it was apparently nothing to do with the club, so I'm not sure why we didn't retain last right of refusal on him.

    Being that you paid him out and it's not being included in next year's cap, you could argue he could play for you next year for nothing ?????

    Legit strategy.  Over the last few weeks my constant Mum references and the occasional poopy pants and farty face name calling has thrown a cat amongst the pigeons posters; so much so that Bren/Archer/Welshy/Chewie and even Milchy have all been nominated this year.  I have even gone to the extent of NOT posting a smiley emoticon after being sarcastic to someone  Very Happy .  Allthough you got one then, but that's because I'm adaptable.
     
    Desperate times call for desperate measures and I've left nothing in the change rooms except on the girls side, which was one of those spy cameras disguised as a pen.


    Now I will still win it, that is a given and I 'embrace' my soft-cockedness, but instead of a landslide Air Quote victory:quote: it may just be a minor rockfall.

    This is some funny shit. A player threatening a club with the salary cap.


    Former Manly and Parramatta player Anthony Watmough is facing a $1.2 million legal showdown, with his injury payout again causing significant controversy.

    Watmough was forced into early retirement after succumbing to a debilitating knee injury just 12 months into his four year deal - which was reportedly worth around $750, 000 a season.

    The bill for this amount rests with Parramatta after QBE rejected the insurance payout on the grounds that the injury was pre-existing.

    According to the Daily Telegraph, Watmough discovered this week that the Eels are looking at offering him a reduced figure - significantly less than the value of his $1.2 million contract - which operates outside the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

    The dispute arises over the final year of Watmough's contract, which was an option in his deal.

    Parramatta have paid him in full for the 2016 and 2017 season, but refute claims that they owe him anything for the 2018 season since it was an option.

    "(The option to play) was in his favour but the terms could not be performed," Eels administrator Max Donnelly said.

    "It’s not like he can exercise his option to play. He can’t play."

    Watmough has reportedly told friends that he will challenge Parramatta's bid, and may even train with the squad in the off-season to force the Eels to pay him.

    Currently this type of payment is not included the club's salary cap, but it would become an issue if Watmough makes good on his threat.

    Considering the crop of talent that the Eels have recruited already for next season - including Sosaia Vava, Nathan Brown and George Jennings - this could cause a huge problem if Watmough's $1.2 million pay-out is forced to be included in the cap.
