I would love McGrath to come out and be like
This article is rubbish, of course I’m going to re-sign, but I would be stupid to re-sign now, I wouldn’t be maximising the potential of my next contract.
Anyone who suggests he is holding the club to ransom or is just looking out for himself and not being a team player is ridiculous. It’s a business, it’s a career for these young guys. I highly doubt he would be asking for 500k plus, he was probably offered something around low 200k, and he is probably wanting something around 300k a season.
I would have thought they offered Pidge a similar second contract to Parish, and based on his first year and his awards, Pidge is worth more than that.
