We are stuck with him next year after his last 7 or so games. Everyone knows he's soft now and we get the pleasure of paying 850k then 950k the following year.So we pay for his shoulder op and rehab him and then some other club gets him. Sounds a bit like Bird mark II.
“I have never said I wanted out of the club,” Haas said.
“I love the Broncos, I love the people here, I have made lifelong mates.
“I am still contracted here until 2024 so I am still here and I want to do well at the Broncos.
“I have been here through the rough times and I can see the good times coming.”
“I am contracted here. Brisbane is good for me, I have my family here, my mum and dad are down the road.
“I am pretty sure we can sort things out.
“They (his management) are starting talks again with the Broncos and they are pretty good, so I will see what happens and fingers crossed they can work it out.”
“It was pretty hard to pull out of the World Cup,” Haas said.
“I spoke to Mal (Meninga, Kangaroos coach) and I told him I wanted to represent Australia. I was born here and I am an Aussie first.
“I was tossing and turning over it for a couple of weeks.
“I just thought this time now, especially with my body, it didn’t pull up well this year and with all the stuff going on with my family (the jailing of his mum), I felt like I needed to be at home.
“As the older sibling, I feel I need to be there for my little brothers and give them a bit of guidance.
“I felt that was more important than going over to England to play in the World Cup.
“I felt like I had to be here for my family and look after myself.”
“I would swap all my Paul Morgan Medals to help Brisbane win a premiership,” he said.
“I watched one finals game the other day and I switched it off straight away, I just couldn’t watch it.
“It sucks (missing the finals) because I know how good we are and what team we can be.
“All you want to do in your career is win a premiership and that’s what I want to do at the Broncos.”
The thing that pisses me off about this tosser now is that him and his little posse will "want to be at the broncos" whenever his form dips and he is playing shit, but if he suddenly smashes it for a few weeks and justifies his over inflated price tag he will ask for a release again.According to an article published by Badel this morning, Payne Haas has withdrawn from World Cup contention in order to ensure he's at full fitness for next season, and has reaffirmed his commitment to the Broncos.
