For God’s sake Raiders, spend the money on players who want to be here

johnboy 30 October 2013 3

The Herald Sun brings word of the Canberra Raiders’ desperate efforts to retain the services of Anthony Milford who obviously doesn’t want to be here:

CANBERRA are set to make a staggering $1 million a season bid to prevent rising teenage superstar Anthony Milford joining the Brisbane Broncos.

The deal will skyrocket the talented Milford into the game’s top earning bracket, putting him alongside the likes of Cameron Smith, Greg Inglis and Johnathan Thurston.

The deal is being put together as a last-minute pitch to keep him at the club.

Many insiders already believe Milford has signed with Brisbane for 2015 and is still a strong possibility of linking with the club next season.

However, incoming Raiders coach Ricky Stuart understands Milford’s importance to the club’s future and hatched the audacious plan to keep him.

Oh dear. Ricky’s cunning plan eh? To spend loads of money on someone with no passion for the club?

Maybe Raiders don’t expect Milford to accept any offer to stay so they may as well bid his price up so that Broncos may have more pressure on their salary cap if they are to woo him. All’s fair …

Ricky is probably hoping Milford is like him and will just go where the most money is.

ACT Government needs to stop using taxpayer’s money subsidising the Raiders.
