Oh yeah, I am too.

Gate takings! :lol:
Guler, Hors and Young realistic aims...
This is amazing

Those dudes dont get it. He wanted out, he got out. This is how this works now. They aint getting **** except for us not allowing him to play against them this year, and some cap space.
Hey Botman, this is actually my post from the kennel, glad to see you picked this post out of all the other quality posts you could have selected from.
From my perspective, I don't particularly care if CHN leaves and where he goes, however I would like to see the Doggies get some form of compensation be it a corporate agreement of cash or a player swap. I know it doesn't happen often but there has been a precedent set previously in similar situations. Steve Turner player swap between Storm and Titans and Ben Hannant's release to Brisbane involved sharing of gate takings.
In regards to CHN the player, he'll be a good buy for your club, plays predominantly on the right edge, runs a good line but has had issues defensively. He was one of our better players last year, which, let's be honest wasn't a difficult accolade to achieve.
There's a good read about his upbringing here, which gives you an idea why he doesn't always make good choices. He left Panthers under some controversy as well. https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport ... 6973bb4138
If he does end up at the Raiders I hope he matures as a person and adds some value to your team. I enjoy watching the style of footy the Raiders play, and have to admit I had a few green snags from Lindbeck's Butchers on gf day last year.
GATE TAKINGS!
You actually think you're going to get a % of our gate takings... Good **** grief.

This race has been run and lost, friend.
You're getting the right to not have to play against him in 2020 and salary cap space... That's what you're club is getting for CHN.

Do i like this system? No i dont. But as i've argued time and time again on this site, it is what it is and the toothpaste isnt going back in the tube. This is the player empowerment era. The players and clubs are now painfully aware who hold the power.

You're going to lose CHN for basically nothing despite being contracted.
And if your club has it their way, they'll be getting that young Burton kid from the Panthers for 2021 despite being contracted to the Panthers.
Swings and roundabouts friend.

Should the dogs get some compensation for CHN? Probably. But then we should probably get something back for developing Nick Cotric for 5 years only to see him leave at age 21. We've certainly invested more in him than the dogs did in CHN. So you want to talk compensation, lets talk about it.

Will they get compensation? No. You guys can forget your dreams of Starling or Tapine, or Guler, or Hors or any of that nonsense. The deal is done and he'll be coming to Canberra and all you'll get for the pleasure of that is to not play him this year and cap space.

Is it right and fair that this is how it is? Probably not. But a fair is a place they judge pigs. Life isn't fair. The workforce hold the power.

Is there anything at this stage that can be done about it? No. Not really.

Do i care that the Dogs are taking a hit here? Not at all.

Appreciate you taking the time to join and share your thoughts
Do I like that you ask yourself questions and then answer them? Yes I do.
There is something that can be done and that is we don't release him, do I think that will happen, no, because the Bulldogs board aren't strong enough to make that decision.
Am I happy with Cotric signing on for 2021? Yes, should we have to compensate you for developing a junior and then prizing him away with cold hard cash, no. I do think there should be some kind of cap concession for players that come through the junior pathways though.
At the end of the day CHN should be released, but as he's a contracted Bulldogs player we'd be mad to not be pushing to get something back. Be that a corporate agreement or player, either way I'd prefer that my clubs administration finally had the minerals to push back against player power.
If you enjoy that then I highly recommend you get into an argument with Botman when he's wrong but won't accept it. Thats when the real fun happens. :thumbsup

Unfortunately for your club, where you and many of the fans seem to be going wrong is assuming that because he's contracted to your club, that somehow that puts your into a position of power to dictate the terms of this.

It doesn't and your club has no power. It incorrectly sacked a man, did zero welfare checks on him, put out strongly worded statements condemning the guy. And then when he gets his termination overturned you want to pretend like he should just be thankful to have a job and continue on his merry way sacrificing his body for a club that proved it didnt give a **** about him?

And you think that is a position of power? Please. It's 2020, the players hold the power and in this circumstance, the dogs dont have a leg to stand on.

Your club has two options.

Release him now and move on with the job of rebuilding the club.
Or release him 2? 4? 6 months from now and move on with the job of rebuilding the club.

Either way he's coming to Canberra and you're not going to get anything for that. Both clubs and the player are aware of this. And so here we are, the dogs have agreed to release him, and he'll be playing for the raiders next weekend.
First 2 sentences summarise perfectly. That's exactly the scenario. Dogs can bargain all they like but there fighting this battle from the bottom of a mud filled trench.

I think it is only fair we pay the Dogs some gate takings. I think 100% of the gate from our round 4 and 6 home games should be adequate.

OFFICIAL: Canterbury Bulldogs release forward Corey Harawira-Naera, clearing the way for him to join Canberra Raiders

Canberra are poised to land Bulldogs back-rower Corey Harawira-Naera for the next two-and-a-half years in the latest tit-for-tat signing between the rival clubs.

Canterbury officially released Harawira-Naera on Thursday, with the Raiders expected to confirm his signing until the end of 2022 imminently. Harawira-Naera would not be available to play against the Bulldogs when the two sides clash in round 16 under the terms of a proposed release.

Canterbury Bulldogs club statement

The Canterbury Bulldogs would like to make the following statement on Corey Harawira-Naera and Jayden Okunbor.

"After discussions with both Jayden and Corey it has been agreed that Corey will leave the club and Jayden will stay at Belmore.

The club acknowledges that the original decision to de-register the two players was overturned by the NRL Appeals Committee.

This committee, which was headed by a former High Court Judge of Australia, made a ruling that stated that the players' contracts at the Bulldogs were binding and that the club was required to uphold these contracts.

As such, the club met with both Jayden and Corey in regard to resuming their contracts at Belmore.

Jayden expressed his desire to remain at Belmore and apologised unreservedly to the club and the wider rugby league community for the harm he had caused to all parties.

He has since undergone counselling as part of his rehabilitation and has pledged to offer his time to be involved in a full re-integration into the Bulldogs Community program.

Corey also apologised for his actions to all parties concerned, however, after further discussion with the player it was felt that in the best interests of both parties he get a fresh start away from Belmore.

Bulldogs Chair Lynne Anderson understood that this was a difficult process for all concerned:

"After the NRL Appeals Committee overturned the original de-registration of the players and stated the players' contracts be upheld, we sat down with both Corey and Jayden.

While we made it clear to both players that what had happened was unacceptable and had caused enormous harm to all involved, we also believed that it was important to have honest conversations with both Corey and Jayden.

Both were extremely contrite and understanding of the harm they had caused and apologised unreservedly.

At the end of those conversations it became clear that while Jayden very much wanted to be given a second chance at Belmore, it was in the best interests of both parties if Corey was given a release to make a fresh start somewhere else.

While we totally understand that the behaviour that took place was unacceptable, we also looked at the opportunity for a second chance and for the ability of the individuals to redeem themselves.

Jayden is a local junior who has been with the club since the U14's all the way through to our NRL squad. He has readily agreed to undergo further educational courses in this area and be part of a community program on his return to the club."

I enjoyed the gate-takings comment. Do they realise that by the time we play the Dogs again there probably won't be crowds again?

Still don't like this. I'll never support him as a Raider. Think we're letting ourselves in for a world of problems when we willingly take on a player with known multiple disciplinary breaches and a disregard for club policy...

I will say this... we don't normally approve posters who support other clubs... as that is why The GH was created. But noeasyday showed he was prepared to discuss things sensibly and put the view of a Bulldogs fan politely and with good humour. So thank you to noeasyday for that.

Personally, I think the Bulldogs got the best compensation they could possibly hope for... not using the player when the Raiders play the Dogs in 2020. That probably represents a favourable outcome for them, given CHN was never going to play for the club again, the Bulldogs effectively sacked him and then didn't ever communicate with him again until the Bulldogs were forced to reinstate the contract.

I enjoyed "noeasyday" posts, didn't agree withhis position but admired his passion and eloquence. It must be hard supporting a once great club brought low by Z grade management. There is a way out of his misery but I don'tknow if the Dogs have the intellectual wherewithall to take that path. The signing of Cotric tells me that they don't, their most desperate need is spine players and I don't see Cotric helping there. I would have been on the phone to Sezer for a temporary fix.

Yep, it's good to have other supporters on here she they can engage in decent discussion. Matty Storm was a good example.

I enjoyed "noeasyday" posts, didn't agree withhis position but admired his passion and eloquence. It must be hard supporting a once great club brought low by Z grade management. There is a way out of his misery but I don'tknow if the Dogs have the intellectual wherewithall to take that path. The signing of Cotric tells me that they don't, their most desperate need is spine players and I don't see Cotric helping there. I would have been on the phone to Sezer for a temporary fix.
you mean cotrics best mate and former bulldog Aiden Sezer?

Still don't like this. I'll never support him as a Raider. Think we're letting ourselves in for a world of problems when we willingly take on a player with known multiple disciplinary breaches and a disregard for club policy...
He has to answer to Sia and Papa now, who was it at the Dogs?
I think Willie Mason may have an honorary cultural role at the Dogs, Cranky. ;)

The Greenhouse don’t normally approve posters who support other clubs. But we definitely support posters who death ride the Raiders making you wonder if they want the club to succeed or not.

That is absolutely fair and reasonable. There is unquestionably an element of risk involved in this signing.
Not everyone is going to be on board with this.

1000% agree. That club has no idea what it's doing and it's a real shame for their fans... and one we can empathise with, it was not that long ago we were where they are now.
Thats a proud club with a proud fan base. They deserve better from their club.

i did enjoy getting a chuckle out of noseasyday's wishes for compensation here but i get it too, this is a guy whos sick of his club rolling over and continue to make poor decisions at every level. Lord knows we've been there!

Not sure that’s fair as a headline BJ Mole!

The GH is a platform for Raiders fans to express their views. We don’t support any particular view... except on the very rare occasions the site says so publicly. Asking for the return of the club song is the last one I can remember.

Good ge. I’m Just firing a shot across the boughs of a few posters who seem to enjoy a loss more than a win.

Multiple breaches - is there any evidence of other issues apart from the incident in Port Macquarie?
