Money for the guns won't be a problem. We've got so much room in our cap that Libba and Macrae would still be making as much money with us as they would elsewhere. There's literally no reason for them to leave since they won't be offered better contracts anywhere else, and our team has as much talent as any other team out there, more so with Boyd. With all the room in the cap we could have spread the money around and give everyone a 10K pay rise but that won't make a difference to anything, and it wouldn't be the difference whether a player stays or goes. Luring a (potential) genuine superstar in the making will make a huge difference, and will actually help with player retention rather than force players out. Sure it is way overs at this stage, but in 5 years when the cap will be closer to 12M than 10M, 1M will be the going rate for a gun KPF. It would cost us even more to go out and try to lure him to our club if/when he is absolutely dominant.We lost Griffen, Cooney and Higgins. That's 1.5M opened up in the cap. More on the way with Boyd, Morris and Murphy coming to the end. We could have given everyone a small pay rise, gone out and gotten 2X 500K players, or 3 decent quality 350K players, but we'd still have the same problem as always. Boyd is a big gamble that we have to take if we want to get anywhere. The players would undertand it, and it's not going to make much of a difference to their own contracts.
