Speaking with a former international who is employed with an NRL club, he believes the Tigers are very active in the market but cut off discussions when they exceed market value, he said he can't believe the difference in the club in 2 years & said if all clubs operated this way players wouldn't be paid overs & there would be less shopping around of contracted players.
Good approach. I fully support.
About time clubs stood up to manipulative Players Managers.
Well this is all well and good and that warm and fuzzy feeling but unfortunately this is a success based business the organisation can not keep missing out on the finals .
Mediocrity is well intrenched through all levels at this club ... what ever it takes!
It is that particular philosophy "whatever it takes" that got us into all sorts of trouble in the first place - that we are only just starting to get out of at the moment.

You want us to get back behind the eight ball again. Hopefully the management are not listening.
No it didn’t. We recruited no one just paid massive overs for the players we had in the system

Huh?? We recruited no one?? The poster is talking about the recruitment of Adam Blair and Lote Tuqiri, and the overs we paid for the players in our system was us paying 'whatever it takes' to retain our supposed stars. How well did that go??

For the first time ever we've got a combination of money to spend, sound management, sound communication throughout the various levels of the club and corporate support but apparently this isn't good enough? It may not be good enough to win a title at this stage but the improvement we've made off the field is immense. The talking heads should have been having a field day given our form this last two months but the only ones complaining are me and the rest of us on here.

We are not a destination club yet. We do not have the beach lifestyle, are not a one-town team, are not the spiritual home of Indigenous league and do not have league legends heading our operations. Our best bet is to lie in wait with our money in hand and capitalise on the rash decisions that the bigger clubs can normally afford to make.

Pretty sure that's how Souths got Inglis (and that they both share a strong Indigenous connection).

We have not shown any purchases yet , but are we in negotiation with multiple players , nobody knows what we are doing or who we may be trying to get , time will tell and it will be based on Nathen Cleary coming to the Tigers I think , we could be holding out for 12 months and then bring in 5 or 6 solid player purchase ,,Clearly and others

Recruitment are doing a good job. People will cry either way, you pay too much or you don't sign so called marque players because of some clubs willing and able to pay overs. You can't win until you jag a player others want to play with.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

Yep I like the way the club has gone about things. They are trying to have a balanced squad and pay players what they are worth. I can see us picking up a few good signings as the dust settles on the season. No point going over the top for a player just because we have cash to burn.

It's an honorable approach to have but if we keep on having squads of numpties being paid market value we'll never improve. Especially when other clubs can find 'creative' ways to pay players more than what we can. Or the fact that those clubs are successful means players will sign for 50-100k less a year than take more $ to be a loser.

We need stars. We are not currently attractive to stars and our ONLY lure at the moment is offering them more money. No one wants to leave a successful club with state of the art facilities that regularly makes the finals to go to a club with ancient facilities that are perennial losers.

We have to pay overs for 1-2 players to bring the necessary quality. This has to be done extremely selectively though. They must be the right players, in the right positions with the right attitude.
I just think that very often purchasing highly priced stars often falls short of expectations.
Also you are in a situation whereby 2x$1M players take up over quarter of your cap space.
If we did this for next year it would mean a high risk strategy whereby we would be short on remaining squad requirements. So it’s a balancing act.
If for example we empty our bank account and boy Cleary junior and Klemmer ...... yes we have our 2 star recruits but depth is affected severely.
And they have couple of ordinary games or injury sets in ...... then see what the criticism from the fans will be about our recruitment strategy.
I just don’t see any other club (apart from the crazy roosters) who take that approach with any level of success.
Next year the roosters will have 4 players on or around a million a year, throw in Hall and Morris as well :x

So if we had a nickname for him, would we call him "Clarky" or Clarkey". I guess the former, but it just looks wrong...

But remember boys and girls, there's no E in Clark, but there is in Plodder.
:roll
Shouldn't that be "Ploddere" ?
Only if he’s French !
But you do get an extra E.

WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH, have a look at what forwards have gone for, BOYD, PAULO, SIMMS, they have gone for 400 to 600 thousand dollars, now lets face facts with the cap gone up these payments will be the norm for these caliber players, its seems like we have already got our 3-4 players in that price range, and it seems we will not go after players over 300 thousand, therefore we get the plodders. now if facts were correct we could have had WOODS back for 600 thousand with the dogs paying the rest. so unless the board or IVAN said no why would we not have got him. people can spin this crap we need a balance side but unless u buy 2-3 really top class players THINGS WILL REMAIN THE SAME FOR EVER.

I don’t agree, take out the injuries to top flight players that we have had this season, I think we would now be in the eight, not making up the numbers, common sense should prevail with contracts

Mbye as a fullback is class,Brooks with an effective forward pack is class,Marsters again with a top forward pack is quality.Nofoaluma and his 150 Metres a game is class.Gotta say at the time Packer and Matulino appeaed very good signings and the Jekyll and Hyde personality by some on here re Mcqueen is amazing.This time last year Mcqueen was going to be our saviour on here according to some but these same voices seem to be here to lay the boot in now he is struggling and has proven a dud buy.

More news going around about continuing salary cap issues at the Bulldogs
And Klemmer saying he would leave if it helps his club
Is this the softening of what's to come

Has Klemmer already committed elsewhere but is waiting till the end of the year before announcing it
Dare I say it
Is this why we did not resign Woods
Is this why we are not hearing anything about new signings coming
No one really knows what is going on behind the scenes
But if klemmer is going anywhere he seems like the type of guy who would want to be with his mates
We have both Reynolds and Mbye
Two good reasons to come to the Tigers
We would have the money
He would not have to move towns
Eg Newcastle
He was linked with us before Woods moved to the dogs
We must be a very good chance to get his signature if he does move from the Dogs
And the fact that Woods wanted to come back to the Tigers
That must make Klemmer think maybe we aren't that bad at all

If you are reading this David
You are most welcome to our club of passionate supporters
We would all love to have you here
Especially JR🤞
