These contracts have many parameters in place to suit not only the player but also the club. There would be a long term injury clause, reducing the big blokes payments to a mere percentage. There will also be a clause in place to ensure that he could increase his worth if more sponsorship is developed and salary cap increases. There may also be a clause for dissipation of contract if one party is not holding their legal requirement. Get out clauses are normal and the contract the media are printing is at its utmost worth.

It wouldn't surprise me if the future captaincy has been dangled as well. I imagine that both Bolton and Cooper are now on borrowed time, as well as Linnett and Winterstein. Such is the profession.

Moseby is long overdue. The Cowboys really lack genuine speed as evidenced last week. A great talent and it would not surprise me if he bags a multiple this weekend.

These kind of contracts will become the norm as clubs try to stave off, not only rival clubs, but rival codes. I am sure both parties will have appropriate protection in place and the Cowboys would have some sort of insurance for career ending injury. Brave, but good on them, he is a rare talent that I can only see getting better as his experience and knowledge grows.

Good to see the NRL's refs are still laying money on Brisbane to win each round. Appalling on Friday night AGAIN !!

Last Friday's game between Brisbane and South Sydney should be replayed.

South Sydney's coach Michael Maguire said, "How can I explain the loss to our fans".

He might not be able to but I can. The standard of the refereeing of the match was an absolute disgrace. The refereeing decisions frequently, were more than dodgy, they looked corrupt.

Warren.

Broncos always get a free ride from refs and nrl. It makes booing them ok.

Being a South's supporter, and also being at that game personally, there was certainly no love towards the referees that night.

As for the Broncos, there are fighting for the top spot against the Roosters of being South's most hated team after that night too.

For a one city team, which doesn't appear to have a salary cap (mainly players are being paid by third party deals which are not covered by the club - thus exempt), having the ref's in their pocket, supposedly having a super coach of Bennett for most of their time, and only won 6 premierships out of 30 years in the competition? If Brisbane cannot win it this year, they should replace the Queensland Reds in the super rugby!

Well even the biased commentary from Andrew Johns shouting "Go Canterbury" and Gould egging them on, coupled with a ref with blue and white running through his veins could not stop them getting trounced by a Thurston deprived Cowboys outfit.

Despite the Cowboys making some silly errors in the second half the woeful Bulldogs couldn't get up yet Gould thinks the Bulldogs were unlucky. No Gus, just woeful. A lot like you commentary tonight.

I agree CF. You can always tell who Junky Johns has placed a bet on by the way he commentates.

Cronulla winning off a forward pass. At least the refs are consistent(ly bad).

No video ref checking? The live gambling must have ended so no need to drag the game out further like they do most nights now. Perhaps the ref had a fifty on the Sharks?

I'd be putting my money on the Cowboys , a swap of sorts for the youngster Ponga ( prodigy ? ) they are taking from Cowboys.

All ready tonight on the Friday night football pregame talk about Origin all the NSW usual mouths are writing QLD off.
They already have NSW taking the game at the Suncorp then finishing QLD off at home. Nothing like confidence , Gus the mouth says he can't see QLD having any chance of beating NSW . WTF . We will see as every other year smile

I turned it on at the 68th minute in preparation for NSW hoisting the trophy in front of their home crowd.

NSW played great in the first half but were very complacent in the second half and got lazy. We should've easily won that game.

They didn't get lazy, they got defensive.

Yep,Winger was unmarked,would have been a certain try but thats Hayne for you..always wants to be the hero..the winning try went through a hole where he was supposed to be defending as well..
