There are loads yes, but while he is probably on a better deal financially he is also at a club where he could quite easily win things. They've won more than we have since 2018.

We're making it sound like he has turned honours down at Wigan to sign for Leigh.

I'd say it's the opposite. That somehow Wire have morphed into Saints and have dominated the league for the last 3 years.

I remember every Hull fan slating Tevita Vaikona when he left for Bradford , a year after Steve McNamara had. I was speaking to McNamara at a sportsman's dinner and what he said made perfect sense. RL is a short career, if you're lucky enough to avoid serious injury, and you're looking for another career pretty much from the age of 32 . Nobody can begrudge players maximising the wages they earn during this time, sentiment aside as they generally don't all become coaches and end up retraining for secular employment , outside of the game. All those fans, who speak from their heart disagree with that he said, those that speak with their heads understand, however much they do not like it. Pretty much summed it up for me .

No, not at all.

I'd say they went for opportunities too. All went to the dominant side of the era. The chance to really make a statement in a side the likes of which, no one had ever seen before. I have no issues with guys doing that. It's the equivalent of going to Australia and I support it and understand it when they do.

Let's also go back to your original situation...

If I worked for Microsoft and had opportunity to go to Apple in California I'd have gone. I'd have also told my misses to stick it out, especially if I was getting huge recognition for what I was doing there.

IF I had to move back and had to pick between Microsoft and a new place, lets say Facebook, I'd look at the bigger picture and not just cash. Which organisation promotes from within? Is the CEO a company life man (Radders). What about the managers above me? Have they been headhunted from other places, or given opportunities based off the good work they've done with the business? Do I have a good existing relationship with the chairman? Did he help me pursue my dreams of moving to Apple?

Fair enough & that's your choice (& GW's).

I wouldn't and plenty of others wouldn't too. For every mercenary, there's people who've stayed at a single club and turned down big money moves.

Fans demand loyalty from players but want rid as soon as a player’s form drops. Loyalty should be a 2 way street but in sport it isn’t. Players are all too aware of this having seen colleagues or even themselves slated by fans of their team live or on social media.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

I wonder how many of our supporters who gave him abuse week after week on the terraces are now up in arms for allegedly not coming back to us.
