Everyone's heard this rumour. It's the obvious thing to happen when Cronk retires. But why would Cleary go to a soulless club like the Roosters when he can bleed black white and gold and keep proving the doubters wrong.
Why = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
I agree, we have some strong advantages over the rorters, i.e. A soul, a fanbase, an opportunity to build a club from the ground up. However, we have to make sure we get close enough to their offer to be taken seriously, or as per my post above, get in very early.

Upgrade his contract and pay him what he's worth. We might not need to match the Rooster's offer not everyone is motivated by the $$$$$$$ alone.

The Tigers offered Cleary another NRL gig and if things continue as they are currently he will be at a successful club. Those are very good reasons for wanting to stay here.

I don't see how Ivan would remotely fit in at a club like the Roosters. He doesn't want party boys or players without work ethic, or having a team full of superstars. The Roosters are the exact opposite to us in almost every imaginable.

LOL, Inside info from some one at the roosters...
Their name is ... the chook pen.

Read this on many forums.
I'm sure the doggies wish they had Cleary too...
And Parra & the raiders... and the warriors probably as well despite the wins they're getting.

We will see.

Ivan is a tiger man and he has been given the keys to the castle. He has commenced this project and he will finish it - he now has a war chest to bring in a playmaker or two to complement the current team. I think that he will be a little wary of going to the Chooks.

Have a feeling this rumour is going to be the one that keeps on keeping on.

I feel that Cleary would be more likely to stay given the expectations placed on any Rooster's coach is extreme compared to that of the Tigers coach (not saying we don't aim to win a premiership each year but we are more realistic that we are in a rebuilding phase that is currently reaping rewards above our expectations). Cleary & Pascoe enjoy a close working relationship and I feel Cleary enjoys the support he receives from Management at the Tigers and as long as the Tigers offer him a competitive contract I feel he will stay.

Cleary wanting total control of playing roster won't happen at the chooks. He'll be a Tiger for some time imo
The star of the team is the team.

If you are talking about the depth of the Roosters' brown paper bags then they certainly don't have any depth issues. But brown paper bags don't buy premierships.

Easy solution. Extend Cleary early and pay him handsomely. I don't think many people would be against us going hard early, given what we've all seen so far.

Our club could do with some stability for once.

The world is fueled by rumours, wouldn't concern myself too much with this one though.
