The father of Parramatta’s Nathan Peats has unloaded on club officials, saying it’s unacceptable for them to “stuff people’s lives up because they can’t add up.”
Parramatta are looking to offload Peats to bring them under the salary cap in time to play for competition points against the Rabbitohs on Friday night.
Geordi Peats, who played for Canterbury and South Sydney, said Eels officials Steve Sharp, Tom Issa, Peter Serrao, John Boulous and Daniel Anderson should have fallen on their swords after being issued breach notices by the NRL.
“You have five f***wits on the board who can’t add up and it bites a player on the arse when it’s not his fault,” Geordi Peats told Fairfax Media.
“They reckon they’ve got nothing to answer for, they are pathetic.”
Peats said the players were the ones who ultimately suffered for the board’s mistakes, adding his son was a “pawn in the big game”.
“(Nathan) is shattered, he’s filthy. He’s not happy, he can’t believe it,” Peats said.
“They go and buy Kieran Foran and built well this year but obviously they didn’t have the money to do it.
“They told him yesterday they can’t give him a contract for next year because they stuffed up (2017) as well. They don’t know what they’re doing.
