That is the Aussie style, say what you think.
Can be abrasive until you get used to it, you’d like to think this wasn’t the first time our players had come across it.

It could be he's only 19 and hasn't fully matured and probably hasn't left Australia before

Most Australians have the common misconception that NZ is like England it isn't until they actually see NZ to realise it's different
Never been to Aussie but people i speak to reckon NZ is much better and that's taking into account the lower wages and higher cost of living. 1 guy I talk to at work has most of his extended family in oz including his mum but still prefers NZ.

Warriors want all 2023 games in NZ​

Warriors chief executive Cameron George has called for every one of the club’s NRL games in 2023 to be played in New Zealand.

The Warriors last week got the green light to return home to Mt Smart Stadium for their round 16 clash with the Wests Tigers on July 3 following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

The club can return sooner, should they wish, but George said he wanted the club to remain based in Redcliffe until they have the chance to play in front of a packed house. But in the following season, he says he wants to have the Warriors playing in New Zealand every week to reboot the sport in the country.

“It works for the game, because it can inspire the next generation and gives something back to the Warriors after being on the road for three years,” he told AAP. “You’re dealing with a country that provides a large percentage of the talent pool of the NRL.

“It’s important that the game looks at it because we haven’t had a professional presence here in New Zealand and we need to put rugby league back in the lap of Kiwis.”

The Warriors have spent the past three years on the road, using the Central Coast and Redcliffe as their home venues. After giving up that advantage, George hopes to have the tables turned and believes the other 16 NRL clubs in 2023 can benefit.

“For the entire season we would like to see the Warriors playing in New Zealand, but not with home ground advantage,” he said. “We’d play our home games at Mt Smart and then instead of playing Canberra, for example, in Canberra, you take the game to Dunedin.

“I think there’s a very big opportunity today for the New Zealand government to try and rebuild the economy with visitation to places like Christchurch, Wellington or Dunedin. People are probably sceptical about travelling long distances, but it’s only a three-hour flight to get to New Zealand and then you’re straight back to Australia.”

It’s time. If Matt Lodge received a massive payout to leave early, then I think it’s time we said goodbye to CEO Cameron George.

He’s the reason we don’t have Todd Payten as our coach.

He’s the reason Shaun Johnson left us 4 years ago

He’s the reason we are still paying freight to Stephen Kearney

He’s the common thread.

Time to go Georgie boy. Mowhawk, time to sharpen the axe.

Cameron George out.

I agree with what you say about the Lodge fiasco if true,…. But he isn’t the reason we don’t have Todd Payten (sick father in law was that reason), and he isn’t necessarily the reason we sacked Kearney and paid for it for a while. That sounded more like the mohawk himself!!

George needs to walk if that Lodge payout is true. Let our in form prop walk mid season and kneecapped us salary cap-wise

Agreed. Clearly, Mr George is not the one to lead the club to the promised land.
Shaun Johnson departure fiasco, Payten departure, Kearney chop, OSullivan hire, Brown hire, Kane Evens and Lodge signing, Lodge's strange departure (smelling like a coverup), loves the media attention. I've also heard a few staff left the club because of him. What about the article about him blocking Kiwi and Tonga reps from playing, that's not for the good of the game. Looks like he just wants to be pals with Nathan Brown and Stacey Jones.

If you're the boss, it's your responsibility. He sets the tone and the environment. For Pete's sake, we've had enough coaching and player changes ... you might as well try a new CEO 😆

We need a CEO who understands NRL clubs and what we are doing well and what we completely do not even have at the club (ie seems like youth development is either Z grade or doesnt occur).
But if a CEO at say Bank XYZ had gone on twitter to rampage with an employ publicly about the salary that the club had OFFEFRED the employee. That CEO would be sacked immediately.

How he, Brown, Morgs are still in positions is beyond me. So much for "perform or out". Id say being our worst coach in history is not performing and nor is a CEO making stupid mistakes you would expect from a graduate in an organization.

Possibly Brown would make a better CEO than coach.

Player leaving mid season with full payout for next season all well?

another player has lost his heart and his dream for playing the game:
Chanel Harris-Tavita "Over the last year I haven't been enjoying it as much as I want to, even though being an NRL player was something I dreamed of as a kid."

Wow... WTF are they doing to our club?

It's unfair to include Chanel in this discussion. Read his last blog entry if you want to understand how he feels about his life. He obviously has a lot more depth to himself than majority of people his age (and probably many far older). I'm ecstatic for him. He has had a lot of personal growth, that many never go through.

I'm not sure it affects the cap?
If they leave , we just pay it out in full and he's off our books right?
Nah the media reckons the 500k will be counted on our cap next year as well. I don’t see how tho if it was a player option and not signed.

Traditionally player asking for a release from his contract = no undue money. If club pushes player out, the existing contract is honoured ie chipping in for player to play elsewhere to make up their contract value. Accounted for each year the player is contracted for.

Hence why, IF what is reported is true, is weird.

Yeah we have to pay him , but , is it outside of the cap now? Like Mohawk gives him cash and we free him off the roster as it were and can spend the money he was taking up?

You’re answerable to your stakeholders. Your investors. The people who pay your bills. The people who gave you a job. That’s right, the fans. Without us there is no you. Front up.
