We all know he's a loss

But we all know that the roosters are a club that will spit him out as quick as they snapped him up - should someone better pop up, or should he get injured....

We offered him loyalty, in essence a lifetime contract... he's a st Gregs boy from the wests side.

But just because he's good doesn't mean we can't pick him apart.. stuff him... I'm bitter, so what. I hope he drops the ball 2000 times next year, misses tackles .. and so on... he's human... he already tried to leave once... no time for him...

He is a traitor. It's hard to respect guys like that. He is a quality player and he is putting in but he is a traitor.

I love watching him playing for us but I can't wait until he is gone.

He IS a Wests junior but as well his family have sponsored the Balmain side for probably 20 years. A true son of the merger. Such a shame that he wont fulfill his potential here.

He will always be a traitor. I'm definitely not going to sit here and state that he is a good guy and all is forgiven. That'll never happen. I've accepted he is gone and that he is now a dog traitor for life.

I'd love to see the NRL come down hard on these TPA's. If that happens these guys are going to get screwed over and it couldn't happen to more deserving guys.

Yeah hard to cop - leaving the Tigers in great form and start of his rep career. He's a terrific players but I can't be happy for him, I will be pleased if his form slumps from next year, makes it easier to handle.

It's tough watching ex-Tigers do great things at other clubs, e.g. Fifita, but it's worse when the club wanted to pay big bucks to keep the player and they left anyway. E.g. watching Scott Prince, who wasn't even a junior.

Tedesco referring to that time when slater was the number 1 fullback is very amusing. Not sure how much smoke has been blown in to his mind but he is struggling for clarity. Based on this season he would be hard pressed to be top 5.

Darius, Billy, Turbo are all in better form. I'm sure there are others too.

So by your reasoning the guys coming here are also 'traitors' ?

If the players who are coming to us slagged off their departing clubs on the way out, perhaps they would be considered as such. Them leaving is one thing. The way they have left is another. It shouldn't need explaining.

Someone else mentioned the get over it before. I'm over it. I still consider them traitors especially Tedesco who we offered really good money too.

The guys coming here aren't traitors because they are coming here. I couldn't care less about other teams in the comp.

As for it being football and not war. You my friend have your priorities all mixed up. It's much more important than war.

It's amazing that people do still need it explained to them. If they haven't worked it out by now they never will

When is the penny going to drop. Loyalty only lasts until a club or player changes his or its mind.
When is this fantasy of loyalty going to get put to bed.
It doesn't exist !!!!

Try reading every page in one sitting. It's like watching re-runs of the worst sitcoms. :bawling

To tell u the truth i dont mind that he and woods signed else were, its how they done it. they had contracts for 6 months, yet they want every one to believe that they were forced out by IVAN putting a dead line on them. they were playing some little game along with moses and iam sure books was in on it, untill he realized he had no other options. they have done themselves no credit at all.

Don't really watch the Matty Johns Show, but had a snippet with Fletch & Hindy's kids interviewing the Blues, and there was a question about whether they received the same brown paper bags that Fletch did. Every one of the Blues players mentioned Teddy (Woods included), which was great to see. Everyone knows there's something fishy going on, seemingly except the NRL.
Oh well, wish he'd stayed, not going to enjoy watching him in another jersey but he's a hell of a player.
