    Maybe he went "I know I am getting old and there is always the risk that I break down so would you be interested in extending my contract if I agree to pay massive cut?"

    Other thing with this is that with Topor and Boogaard being older than most exactly what is the succession plan??

    Signing him up for next year says
    1 Bert dont rate Jackson to usurp them
    2 Topors future is up in the air as you aint gonna want 2 CDs well over 32 as your starters
    3 The club dont think they can get better signings than him

    It really is a bizarre move to do it now

    Can understand wanting to put Dimi and Stevie U under contract as they be wanted elsewhere

    But Boogaard aint gonna be head huntec by anyone to worry about losing him

    With Boogs and Toppa here for the next two years we have a stable partnership while the club try and sign replacements or while our young CBs langios etc develop more

    Lowys press conference was an utter embarrassment.

    If they are deemed too old and too slow at some point this season then we will be stuck with them for the next season as well


    Sounds likje a dumb move to judge when senior players are going to reach their use by date by just hoping it wont happen

    Member has been consistent in his desire to implement a system where players are paid after each match depending on performance and contracts are renewed after each 7 day period.

    Maybe we resigned him to knock his wage down from the massive figure he was reported on? Bit more wiggle room for new signings.

    Knowing us, probably not.

    I don't think the issue is that we resigned him. It's the timing.

    You give me one reason why we shouldn't have waited until mid season?

    We can't change what he is paid this season as he was already contracted for this season on x amount of money. Surely he can't accept a pay cut to his wage this season in order to ensure he got a job next year? And if so, would we be able to use that extra money on other players? That seems dodgy to me and we aren't smart enough for those sorts of things.

    if it wasnt the Jets with a flat out gypo in charge id say we've locked him in for one more year then put down on paper a 'post playing career' contract. If the club was smart it would prob save a few bucks on his playing deal by giving him a position for the future hanging out at junior presso's blowing up the Maccas kickabout thingy.
    regardless of peoples opinion of his playing ability, he is prob as good as an ambassador the club has had recently (that will hang here post career) so it would make sense to keep him around. (i mean, we have McBreen doing it ATM which is obvs his reward for killing the gypos in all those losing GF's hahahahaahahah **** the gypos).

    BUT


    seeing as though we DO have a gypo in charge i just imagine he blinked at Boogaards agents' suggestion he might leave and he just threw someone elses money at it in the hope it went away.

    I got issues on both pointz

    The resigning of Booggard in general

    I think we can do better than him period

    The timing of it considering his age is also bizarre

    Not like the bloke is our star player or anything

    Gave away the free kick that led to the goal

    Didnt mark their players in the box

    Didnt win the header as it come in from.Leroy Trash George

    Didnt clear it off the line when it was knocked past Moss
