Will we hurry up and just pay the man and lock him in like Carrigan already.
Honestly while we have players like Walsh who can take advantage of his domination in the middle, Haas's value to the team is making him a 1.2-1.3 million dollar player atm, it's starting to look like we should of taken up that money his management was asking last year(1 to 1.1 mil) though to be fair he wasn't playing like he is now and we didn't know the cap increase was going to be this large.Problem is, I don't think Haas or his management will be in any rush to have this sorted before November. If the Broncs want to sign him without letting him go to market my guess is they will have to offer above market value. He's the touted by the media as the best prop in the game. We have lost Flegler already and now Haas holds all of the cards.
We just need to hope and prey that no other team can afford him.
I brought this up in a post a while back. It was his family that made the decision for him to do the AFL deal.This story about Israel Folau has lots of insights to Pasifika culture / money and family ties .
eg ; The biggest import that comes into Tonga each year is hundreds of millions of dollars. It’s remittance. It’s people sending their pay cheque back to their parents or to their families.”
