Mutually agreed with Toronto to be released from the remainder of his contract.
No reason given.

I’d say the reasons were pretty clear.

Maybe it's handing out silly contracts to average players, or handing out silly contracts to average players ! :D

Maybe it’s the lack of developed players in the player development aspect of his role.

I have never believed in Toronto as a concept. You simply cannot start a pro team in any sport without a domestic/junior comp to back it up. That is why Catalan worked and Paris didn’t. That’s why Sheffield limp on, not because they are great but because they are close enough to the action to benefit from the scraps. Ditto London who operate in the worlds most diverse and cosmopolitan city.

Toronto is in world terms a relative backwater. It has its own sports but more importantly it sits on the border of the USA, do I really need to say more!

It’s a million miles away from the two centres of RL. In fact if you were to go out and pick the most unlikely city in the world for RL to thrive in, Toronto would be up there.

At least most of the other places we’ve tried and failed in have at least had a RU set up that we could borrow off. Toronto doesn’t even have that, even RU struggles in Canada. Though it’s a positive giant compared to the Wolfpack, in at least it has an amateur competition.

So much money wasted that could have gone elsewhere rather than SBW bank account. Another RL tragedy in the making I’m afraid.

Isn’t the Toronto backer thinking of buying a half share in Melbourne Storm? Could that have a bearing?

No. He might end up with 15%.
