Dylan Brown‘s management meets with dolphins

AF47F16D-AC7E-4492-92AB-EE3597A1E1E0.pngApparently Dylan Brown management has met with the Dolphins. They are prepared to pay 1 million minimum. There is also rumours on Social media suggestioning  Parramatta have to choose Mitchell Moses or Dylan Brown?. I for the love of god cannot understand this and where has all our money gone? Losing all the players last year surely meant we have enough to offer brown and Moses what they are happy with. Have we got something to be worried about or is the media just blowing smoke l?

      • Losing Reed will not hurt us, his replacement and in turn his replacement may.

  • Gee, we talk a lot about money. Lots of people don,t have a lot of it but can still make a life worth  living.


    • Maybe it will help players' ego if they have their annual contract earnings printed on their jersey.  Extra motivation for other less-paid players to play better? geez, we can do better when life is so fixed on a false God

  • Its all media stuff; we will wait and see what happens. If he chooses to go for cash of the Snake in Pants Benny then good on him; life will go on; but if we low ball which I doubt then the club could be in strife; my money is on him staying and MM too.

    He is not worth $1 million and this alone would be on potential for me; Has Pongia changed Newcastle?

    • Ponga only plays a handful of games every year. And gets caught with Mann in a toilet cubicle on game day while he is club captain. So that's probably a no. Worst captain in the NRL.


      • There you go; money and fame all for it to be pissed up in a Newcastle toilet.

  • Rumours are a Sydney club offered Nanai $900 a season.  If a rookie backrower can get that, then Dylan can get a million as an experienced grand final and international half with plenty of years ahead of him.  

    Meanwhile the same media that said Parra can't afford both Moses and Dylan have linked the eels with Nanai which shows it is all just made up or taken off social media.   With all the speculation of what will happen, someone will be right when it all settles and will claim they told us so and that they know everything. 

    They will then try and guess more signing news with the rest of people with no knowledge other then a mate told them.  There mate being a random social media post which will start the cycle again when the next set of contracts are getting negotiated.

    • Fake, good point. i doubt our club would be offering Nanai that money; and would also assume the club has set aside funds for both MM and DB; and this would also be dependent on the final cap for next season and beyond. Parra to my understanding have never forked out that type of money for a forward, and Watmough was paid well when he was here and Foran was a disaster. I think clubs who would / could offer Nanai that $$$ would outside the 8...but i could be wrong.

      • You know what Mitchy, for some reason i feel it could be us. I know what you are saying in that Parramatta wouldn't offer that money but with the apparent upgrade in the cap we offer players what they are valued. Could we valure Nanai at $840k a year? I could see us valuing him that much. Not saying that is a right value or not but we can be interested in spending that much if value it there.

        Though on the other side we rarely do it also, it would be extremely out of character, but pleasant change if they do it.

        • LB  mate you could be right but lets look at it, Matto / RCG / Paulo and Lane to lesser extent all on v good contracts, and Hodgson as DH and we throw a shit load at this guy who's had one v good year and hes a forward? If so, we would want to be moving someone on soon.....Look i am all for it LB on the outside but to me its not what we normally do when we let guys go last season and didnt offer them overs.

          To me we need a balance of workers on moderate money with some talent in the pack; with younger guys coming in. I also feel along with key players in the halves and a decent fullback; we have no game breaker besides on the odd occasion DB does something / Moses sets up a play or a Lane freak offload. For me we need some pace in the backline somewhere.
