I'm 100% with BB on this....the board are playing mind games.. offering a very acceptable wage....and then taking any chance of the contract being accepted or even negotiated, with the absurd 8 year contract term... 3-5 years is the norm..8 is just taking the piss ....and as the learned gentleman BB stated.....the board are trying to pre empt the normal scenario.. " well we tried "......knowing full well that the contract was never, as long as they have holes in their arses, ever going to be accepted.
Expect this statement from the board this summer.
" Declan didn't want to sign a new contract so we had no option but to let him go"
So the blame is firmly put on Rice's shoulders.
Bunch of scheming underhanded cunts.
Whilst my sentiments exactly, it would only double cement our total contempt for the worm. All he would be saying is that we are all total idiots.
If you asked out who on here thinks he will be here in two years, the majority would say no. Many, myself included, would be surprised to see him here next season.
Personally I think the decision has been made, maybe for the good of progression, but I think he will be sold EOS, and this latest leak, and I believe, rightly or wrongly, that it came from him, is like you say." I tried, but now for the benefit of all concerned......."
Well good for Rice, he isn't being a puppet, he is sticking to his principles regardless of the money he has and is passing up.
