He can sit out and not get paid as far as im concerned..

He would have no grounds to dispute the fact he isn't getting paid either

Sacking 1 made us look HARD AS. Being forced to sack 2 and now possibly 3 in 12 months makes us look crap.
What would you have done with Dugan and Fergo out of interest?
The club could have sacked Furner instead of Dugan. I sometimes wonder what season 2013 would have been like if the Raiders saw Furner as the bigger issue and when Furner said to the board 'it is him or me' they went 'clean out your desk'

Alas we will never know. Just like we won't know what could have happened if we roll over and just release Milford to the Broncos

$100,000? What good will that do at all.

Offer $1,000,0000.00 then we'll start talking.

As the Broncos mouthpiece, looks like they seem to think the Raiders will be happy with $100,000. :roflmao

ENOUGH is enough. Today, Canberra boss Don Furner should ring Broncos counterpart Paul White, broker a $100,000 transfer fee, and let Anthony Milford get on with his life in Brisbane.

The Green Machine forfeited any right to sympathetic ears on September 12, the day they aided and abetted Ricky Stuart's ugly defection from Parramatta.

Raiders management were happy to tuck the moral compass in their back pocket when Stuart walked out on the Eels, insisting he had no choice but to put family first.

Obviously this doesn't need to be explained to anyone with half a brain, but Ricky's get out clause was entirely in his favour. Milford's was dependant on proof that his Dad's health was deteriorating, which clearly the Milford camp hasn't been able to establish.

Only an idiot would buy into this blatant propaganda piece. Then again, Brisbane is the target audience.....

How did I miss this? The Broncos Mail and the Broncos chief publicist at it again. He was on 2CC this afternoon, with the new drive presenter Luke Bona. Unfortunately Bona gave him a platform in Canberra... then agreed with him! :lol:
What a ****ing hack that reporter is.

How many times do these clowns need to be reminded that Ricky had no contractual obligations to Parra. Ricky included a clause that would allow him to leave at any time if he chose to.

Within the space of an hour on Wednesday the Raiders announced Milford had agreed to don the lime green again in 2014 before the Broncos revealed they had got their man on a two-year deal starting in 2015.

I don't think any money would do much. We can't spend it on anyone outside the cap on retaining current or buying new players. The only team a transfer fee would benefit is the Broncos as they get the player and Canberra get nothing.

Use the money to pay Teflon Don out of his contract, with the remainder contributing towards the wages of a competent CEO who can drag us out of this quagmire we're in.

Restless NRL star Josh Hoffman embarrassing himself and disrespecting the Brisbane Broncos

JOSH Hoffman is writing his own ticket out of Red Hill and straight to Redcliffe.

He is embarrassing himself, disrespecting the club and the fans that worshipped his every move by publicly trying to pressure Brisbane to release him to Canterbury.

The stupidity he is wilfully participating in on social media with the Canterbury players on the New Zealand team is shameful.

Funny hashtags such as #releasehim might get a few laughs in camp, but it puts you further from the Kennel and just leaves you sitting in the dog house.

And while the Broncos Mail demand Anthony Milford is released... they conclude that Josh Hoffman is disrespecting the Broncos and fans that worshipped his every move by publicly trying to pressure Brisbane to release him to Canterbury... and he should be on his way to a Q Cup feeder club in 2014. :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao

The sad thing is, none of the footy supporters that I have spoken to in brisbane seem to know or care, they have a bad year and all drop the broncos to exclusively support state of origin. No wonder they are desperate to buy a premiership.

That's the thing though dog, once we accept Milford won't play for us again we have the broncos bent over a massive barrel

They have a fullback posting he wants to leave, a rookie half and a 5/8 who is quite unstable and has epic bender crew tattooed on his groin.

If we stay strong we can write our own ticket on Milford's release or even better take them to court and put a massive stop on the underhand methods they are using to try and get DCE.

Hoffman clearly wants to be at the Bulldogs. Besides I think Locke is a better fit for the Raiders.

Raiders insist homesick Anthony Milford's all theirs for one more season

The will-he-stay-or-will-he-go saga concerning Anthony Milford has taken another twist with Canberra insisting the young star has again confirmed his commitment to the club for next season.

''Anthony has given us an undertaking in writing from his manager and personally from Anthony as well that he will be here in 2014,'' Furner told Fairfax Media. ''He will honour his contract, which is all we wanted him to do.

''I spoke to the chief executive of the Broncos [Paul White] about it, clarifying that it would only be for those seasons [2015 and 2016].

''I've exchanged text messages with Sam [Ayoub] today and he said he will not be going back on what we've said,'' Furner said. ''He will be with you in 2014.''
