Your not seeing the woods because of the trees.
It's not difficult to work out.

The first post I put up when I hear Sandow had gone AWOL was something like 'that doesn't surprise me, now let's tie Clark down with a big contract'.
I guess £30k per year on his contract would see every one off. We may have paid more, don't know myself. Just a surmise.

Quite the difference between the biggest earner at club and the "marquee" player.
Clark, should, be the highest earner at the club, is he the designated Marquee player? It must be quite a juggling act as the club could sign someone who has a wage £1 higher for next year and suddenly Daryl's wage is a huge obstacle balancing the books.
I would guess he is our MP, but there will be another next year and Clark's wage will mean Blythe will move on.

Or you're putting 2 and 2 together and making 5?

Unless we have official confirmation from the club we can't know whether he is a marquee or not.

If Sandow was listed as £175k on the cap, we could have signed Brown for £125k (say) and still have enough left in our cap to increase Clarks salary from £100k / year to £150k / year for example and still not have him on marquee allowance.

A club doesn't need to release info on who is marquee to us. So we can speculate all we like. All good fun. Either way... Clark and perhaps Westerman have been the only two players to warrent even consideration for the marquee pot this season.
The rest but Lineham haven't earned tuppence IMO.

Just seems to me that Sandow's late exit has hit us harder than perhaps first thought in that we have lost a marquee player of high skill and ability, as demonstrated last season before his injury, and didn't have time to replace his skills and ability.

Then did we decide to re-distribute part of the Sandow salary around some of the existing , already highest paid players, in an effort to mitigate Sandows loss, and look to these better paid players to take things on.

If so , has it alienated the rest of the squad , resulting in the "lumber in't mill"

We turned down a £300k+ offer from you lot this offseason for Williams.

I don't know if Lenagan has the resolve to do that again.

There'll be a revolt if he's sold though.

There's always been the rumour that Williams is going to South Sydney.
He would earn a fortune there, not that your offer of £300k salary isn't a fortune.
Just he'd get more at Souths.
