If its on a deacon style contract then fine (half player half coach) during a period of massive change we need his stability both on the pitch and off the pitch.

However if he is playing on i cannot see him being able to demand the same tyoe of wage that previously has.
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

support verb [ (ENCOURAGE)

"to agree with and give encouragement to someone or something because you want him, her, or it to succeed"

If wigan are daft enough to offer him a contract I'm sure he'll take it .
Great player long past it.

Without being funny I can see Clubb and Sarginson being offered new deals too
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

It’s £75,000 that counts on the cap if club trained, £150,000 if not.

The club could pay Lockers £80k if it wanted and “only” £75k would count on the cap. Obviously a silly thing do but the rules allow it.

Don’t think any of the names in the frame in this thread should take up a marquee slot regardless of it only being £75k on the cap for Lockers.

Irrespective of whether he is worth the salary, there is little point in him carrying on.

It's like putting a sticking plaster over the teams shortcomings.

Incorrect.

A marquee player is a player whose salary cap value would be (but for the provisions of this clause) £175,000 or more.

Whilst it is true that Lockers may only have £75,000 of his salary counted on the salary cap, he would need to be earning at least £175,000 or he would not meet the rules of being a marquee player.

If today didn't make the club sit up and take stock of just exactly where we are and where we need to get to then I don't know what will ,
if the club offer Sean another year then they've learned nothing.
