Parramatta Eels Supporters Website
There's no doubt in my mind Kent's stance on this is wrong. Jarryd simply isn't worth 1.2 mil at this point in time. It would be more questionable for Parra to pay overs for him when he's essentially been detrimental to the Titans.
Fair enough if he's simply voicing an incorrect view but part of this feels like a personal attack on the club. Specifically when he emphasizes in both interviews that we cheated the cap 2 years back.
Since then we've had a complete restructure, cleared out all the rot, and come back stronger not only on the field but all the way up the food chain. This is a completely different team and club from two years back. A team and club who made something positive out of a negative situation caused by a few buffoons. However even given these enormous changes and every indication that we are a club on the rise, in Paul Kent's eyes we are still cheaters two years on.
Simply put the fact hes insinuating there's shady dealings going on and calling for an investigation is an insult to the hard work the club has put in to recreate themselves over this past year.
Was talking to a colleague at work today about How Mr Kent and other sports journalist appear to use the Media to drive their agendas. He made mention of the ACMA Codes of practice and compliance.
Some interesting takes outs.

Iam not really sure why you guys are getting excited about this.
Kent made a mistake.....he valued JH at 1.2m whereas he was actually on 800k. TPA difference and it is irrelevant.
Parra buys JH for 500k .....the 300 diff is hardly extraordinary under the circumstances of events.
The NRL approved it, it is done dead and buried.....Kent stuffed up and we are all carrying on like pork chops.....worse things than that will happen in the upcoming year.....focus on what is important and save your anger for something you can get your teeth into.
Chief stop behaving like a redneck!
He can't help it Pops.
