Every staff member at the club has had to have their contract renegotiated as a result of this, triggering a mini exodus from the club. The Fury couldn’t agree to match Fowler’s previous contract value of a reported $750,000 AUD (approx. £450,000)  per year, opening the door for other clubs to acquire him.
