I believe that it's the senior players who have been the most upset about proposed pay cuts. When I heard this I was pretty upset myself as I pay for 3 season tickets and was prepared to take the "hit" on all 3.
If the club change their proposed payments to players then I will be revising my position on forgoing a refund on my season tickets.



I've just seen a post on Facebook, doesn't go into much detail but it's an update of sorts I suppose:

Fan Engagement Board Update

The Fan Engagement Board met this evening with Adrian Ward, Marketing Manager at Wigan Warriors. Some updates to the questions posed yesterday, which can be shared -

- Season Ticket Options - these have been prepared by the club and they are ready to be shared with supporters. There is an incentive that is dependent on approval from key stakeholders in the game and as soon as the green light is given to the club for that - the options will be shared with season ticket holders. The message from the club at the moment is to please ensure that your email address is up to date on the clubs records - so that you receive the options directly.

- A comprehensive FAQs document has been produced which will accompany the options for season ticket holders.

- Cardboard cut outs at games - this will be happening and will be announced over the next few days.

- The club is looking at lots of hypothetical options of social distancing at the DW, when crowds are allowed to return. This is will be dictated by the government but the club is investing in a technology for the ticketing system that will allow smart ticket sales and seat allocation based on whatever the government recommendation is at the time.

- The DW has been stocked with hand sanitizing stations just before lockdown, which are ready for when crowds can reattend.

- In regards to Wigan TV showing Super League games during the 2020 season, there is an announcement pending from the Super League which will set out the plan for the broadcasting for the remainder of the season, however with the Toronto news, this may be delayed slightly.

- The club and FEB will be looking at what options are available for the club to host watch parties of games with past players / non playing players until crowds are allowed back in stadiums.

Flags - One thing the FEB were looking at pre lockdown, was improving match day atmosphere and one element of this, was increasing and updating the flags we have at the DW. We will be sharing some new design options and a go fund me page, for fans to vote on their favourite and contribute to new flags, so that when we return to the DW, we can update the flags. We hope to share the designs with you very soon ....

Only on furlough upto 25k


So they did go on furlough then? The club also had the option to pay the shortfall too.

Not correct if what was printed in the league Express 2 months plus ago

Each player fitted into a bracket dependant on their current salary
The top earners took something like 50% cuts meaning a 250k player was on 125.

Furlough would cover 30k of that (at the monthly rate uo to 2500pm) but the club would then pay the residue up to their equivalent

So, in the example above a player on 250k reduced to 125k would be on just over 10k permonth and the club are paying the difference between furlough and that figure i.e 7.5k Per month.

Just dug out the article
All employees take a 20% cut on the first £37, 500 they earn
All employees take a 50% cut on what they earn above £37,500

So my example above is not a million Miles off

A 100k player would lose 7500 of the first 37,500 leaving 30k
50% of 62,500 leaving 31,500
Total left 61,500

Monthly wage £5125
Furlough would cover the first 2.5k of it.

Obviously there will be tax deducted etc but you get the point.
The club pays the full amount out and then reclaims the furlough amount.

Have the players not been on Furlough? If so, they've taken the 'pain' you've mentioned and this is now about sorting things going forward. Should they be expected to continue to take a cut when millions are now back on 100%?

ATEOTD this is their job and it has nothing to do with us as fans. Every players situation is different and it's up to the individual to what is right for them.


Correct

However, millions of people will lose Jobs as their chosen career/business is going through hard time such as pubs/restaurants and other hospitality industries.

Rugby is no different.
If the players demand their full wages there will be no business.
Income is practically zero and the only way TV money will come rolling in is if we play, if we dont we wont get it and the players will get nothing (administer etc.).

The reality is, something will be written into players contracts in future to cover situations like this of theyve any sense (awaits usual responses).
But the Bateman contract is next years contract based on next years forecasts inc Full TV money and attending spectators
Currently with no TV money and no game and spectators the players canneither play ball for 6 months and get something, or get nothing if it all goes belly up.

Can't be true, I work with people earning way more than that who are furloughed.

Further post this evening :mrgreen:


As part of the Fan Engagement Board, we will soon be looking to update some of the flags at the DW Stadium, ahead of our return (whenever that is!).

We have some designs ready, which will be available to voted upon and then a Crowdfunding exercise will follow, for fans to contribute to production costs. We would also like to get some design ideas from more fans. What flag would you like to see? Which player / coach / moment in time from Wigan's history should have their own flag. Share your ideas

It's going to be all fun and games at the fanzone pre-match, with the FEB and the Riversiders jostling for the closest tables to the stage. :lol:

That's true, but like I said every players situation is different so I'm not going to judge.

A top player maybe inclined to hold out for 100% pay, knowing they could get the same or better money in the NRL. Is this not what happened with Thompson ( I might be wrong)?

It's a cliche, but it's a job and I expect each player to weigh up what's right for them and their families.
