We'd be idiots not too, as if people wouldn't already be playing chinese whisper trying to get him.
You weren't the only one saying Sione was average.
Any team that wants to sign him is going to be overpaying him, and signing him on his potential.
By the end of this contract he will likely be an established SOO fullback, and a mill a year will be his asking price, not overpriced.
If the Knights are serious about keeping a premiership window open here, and being a long term finals contender then it's a no brainer to sign KP.
I can handle 1mil a year at the end of next year but 1.5mil is a bit excessive.
The Article said that’s what he’d be worth on open market and knights won’t pay that . Looking like 1.2mil that’s if the article is to be believed
No one has said that's what we'll sign him for. If he genuinely does want to sign here early & not wait till he's off-contract, then I can't see his price going far over the 1 mil mark. We're just speculating that on the open market, he could probably collect 1.5 mil from someone.
I doubt any NRL team is paying 1.5 for him.
As usual the media gets themselves in a tizzy and hypes the chit out of him.
This is where tpas are going to be so important. He is a very marketable guy in a one team town.

Again, no club can talk to him until " NOVEMBER 2020" thats 18 months away.
The kids being paid exceptional money now ( 650-750k )
I have a huge want for him to be our future and kick on, he could be the best player this next decade.... but why rush a deal when time is own the current deals side and KPs side also?
His still got 3yrs on the current deal, add another 6yrs at 1mil a year on a guy thats played 30 ish nrl games is such a silly move.
I tell you here and now, if we upgrade KP then not have enough to keep players like Dan Saifiti who will definitely be worth another 200k in 18 months time, ill be filthy.
So far it's only media crap anyway, not heard anything from the club or KP, in fact KP said he was happy to leave it for a while previously.
If you were KP's manager you would be telling him not to sign now and wait till 2020 and really put the pressure on us with other teams starting to circle.
If the manager is going to collect 100k+ a year for the next 9 years without having to worry, im sure he'd be extremely happy about it.
I find myself firming in anticipation
My, my, you dirty perv Beaumont lol!
this extension will also run into a new broadcast deal. history shows that the cap SHOULD rise again also.
Not so sure with this one. There comes a breaking point and the way the players have been representing the game and with how most broadcast companies are running in the red I’m not sure these massive tv deals can be sustained in future.
The players will want to get their act together if they want the money to keep rising.
Completely agree, I've heard the next deal could be a big step backwards. There is also the idea that the NRL has beefed up their own media and building personalities via their website with a view of doing their own subscriptions. I'm not sure how much that would change things.

i dont know, the NRL & AFL are foxtels bread and butter, the nrl know this and are still in a position to dictate terms i believe.
Triple M reporting Brisbane wants Ponga for 7.5 million over 5 years.. Crazy money
It came from the mole I think so I automatically stopped reading
That and the Broncos and Seibold literally said days ago they kept Isaako (Until 2022) to play fb, and have been pumping hin up all preseason. Tesi Niu was also talked up as a guy who is expected to be transitioned to play first grade in the backline fullback/wing when he is eligible.
On a scale of never, to never ever, I'd say never ever ever ever ever ever.
Good luck to them...
How could they afford it and stay under the cap.
