    My respect for Bellamy has risen sharply after he knocked back the huge offer from the Warriors. He didn't sell his sole for the almighty dollars and you have to give him credit for that.

    Imo, the dog would of been off like a shot out of a gun.

    Bellamy couldnt sell his soul, he sold it to News Ltd a long time ago and they own it now.

    He may however have a sole though which I believe is a type of fish.

    Bellamy is a type of fish.

    He can't re-sell his soul. Frankly I wish he went,

    I wonder if the Storm will experience the same salary cap pressures as we did as 'defending premiers'?

      Maybe he has a board that do not carry on like toddlers arguing over who owns the sandpit.

      Did they say how much he will be paid to stay? His current club can afford to outbid anyone.

      At Melbourne there's possible brown paper bags filled with more money than the warriors were offering.

      If it is about loyalty, seriously good on him.

      Cmon guys, he had no idea they were rorting the cap. I am sure all coaches have no idea what their players are being paid. They all just coach the players they are given.

      I don't think Bellyache would have worked with the Warriors anyway as I'm not sure they would have bought in to his style.

      He coached NSW for several years and couldn't get a series victory and he lost to the 'Big Three' (probably 'Big Five' if you include Thrurston and Inglis).

      If the Storm are close to matching what was offered and it's no secret that News Limited are trying to get out, why would he leave?

      They do happen to have a very successful culture there (apart from Waldron when he was there) and players tend to go 'under the radar' for media attention living in Melbourne, as they're really only interested in AFL.

      He and the staff and senior players do have the ability to turn 'not wanted's' into premiership winning players. As much as we hate them, you have to admire what they have achieved in such a short time span and I just love games against them (well apart from the last semi.. and the semi in 2010). They're the games I most look forward to.

      We've now got another premiership winning player joining our ranks next year, care of the Storm which I bet Richie thought he'd never achieve earlier in the year.

      So as for Bellyache, I'm glad he's stayed and respect that he hasn't chased the big dollars. But then again, I have been offered big dollars to change companies in the past (when I was younger) and I always decided to stay with a winning team. Life is so much better and relaxing when you're winning (lose Des!).

      he was never going anywhere full stop. Currently the other clubs are tipping an extra 5 mill a season jointly into the storm. So they have cash to burn. News ltd is hoping to sell the storm and the only way they will ever sell a business that losses 7 mill a season is for the club to be very succesful at the hope the turn those figures around.

      Otherwise they are going to be funding a big $$$ hole for as long as they want a team in melb and on foxtel

      Everyone thought the same thing about the dog.

      I never said I liked Bellamy, in fact I still loathe him, but as far as I'm concerned he's been loyal to the mexicans and he deserves a bit of credit.

      According to reports he knocked back a huge offer from a rival club (warriors), unlike the dog.

      You reckon mate ?

      I'm sure Toovey has a fair idea of what players are on and what is left in the cap when he is trying to piece together the jigsaw puzzle.

      *Sees the thread title - laughs.

      *Checks the date. No, it's not April fools day.

      *Assumes it's like the 'official' thread so reads on.

      *Reads post about Bellamy not knowing about the rorting - Laughs heartily!

      *Sees the poster is serious.

      *Leaves thread confused and bewildered with same level of respect for bellamy as before. (none)

      You think the CEO does it all on his own ?

      There would have had to have been a point this year where Perry went to Toovey and said that we have this much left in the cap and we have these players to try and sign, can't keep them all so who are the priorities

      Bellamy would have had the same questions down there over the years, surely suspicions would start to come about in your head when everybody you want to keep is kept ...
