A lot can happen in a couple of weeks let alone a couple of years.

Penrith may well back down.

Imagine getting in a coach for 2 years knowing their getting the arse.

Penrith have put themselves in a shocking position if they dont pull this Cleary powerplay for 2019. Gus should resign if so.

It forces our hand.
We either extend him or we keep a coach for 2 more years and can’t attract players to long term deals because they want to know who the coach is, or we have to let him go early and get a new coach.
I can’t see any other way out that works for us.

Big Deal !
The Panthers have pulled back their offer with the fear of legal action so Ivan looks after himself by drawing a pay cheque for 2 years from us before joining his dream team.
We are the suckers.
You have no idea what you are talking about.

Agree...
What does my head in is all the BS talk of giving him a contract extension

What’s he done to deserve an extension??
Well, he's got a son who's a really good player. He's never played for us and never will so the old man gets an extension.

The proof is in the pudding, if Ivan signs an extension to his current deal then he’s serious but if he’s talking about just committing to his current deal then wow, gee whizz, cock-a-hoop, get down ——— NO, it’s an insult to our intelligence — seeya pretzel.

One step at a time. Get the commitment tomorrow and keep working on Nathan. Get Nathan’s signature then extend Ivan. Simples.

Oh, and never in doubt😜

Ok but when everyone settles down, how is it different to how things were a week ago. Ivan has 2 and a bit years to go on a contract. It was a month ago everyone was emotional about the idea he was going to go to Broncos or Roosters. he still might but nothing has changed, He is with us for the next two years.

Ivan Cleary has no plans to jump off Tigers’ bus, will commit future to club on Saturday

David Riccio Daily Telegraph
Everyone, delete your IC out posts :lol:
Bus...bus, I meant to jump on the bus!!!! I jumped on the coach by accident, my bad!!!!! :o

I got confused :roll: :roll


If IC declares he is staying and doesn't sign an extension then I guess we'll have to sit back and wait to see what NC's next move is. As we know his contract at Penrith runs out before IC's does at the Tigers.
If NC re-signs its going to be a strange couple of years for us, a constant is he, isn't he, when?
An extension would be nice if not just to guarantee a compo pay out in two years time if he goes!!!!

It has been an intense few days for Tigers fans. Sometimes in all of that intensity you can lose focus.

For me I need to remember that if Nathan sticks around for the next two years, nothing has changed from a fortnight ago. Tigers fans are sweating over what that means, how will Tigers deal with recruitment etc in those two years.

Sometimes we cant focus and see the forest for the trees. If Ivan commits tomorrow to seeing his contract out, things revert to the Tigers to how they were two weeks ago.

Two weeks ago Tigers were most concerned about Roosters swooping and signing Ivan and Nathan. When is Cronk off contract? Who benefits from both Ivans and Nathans contracts lining up? Who sacked Ivan 3 years ago? Nick Politis is probably pissing himself laughing.

Just imagine if there was a team that has more money and resources as Penrith, had a penchant for big purchases and had an opening for a coach and a halfback in two years.

All Ive read during this saga is how N Cleary was NEVER going to sign with the Tigers. All that has ACTUALLY happened is Panthers have sacked Hook.

So explain to me why N Cleary hasnt signed with Panthers before now then if he loves it there so much. Why does he want to push it out past the nov deadline to test the market. Surely if the Tigers are s*** as some are saying and he is sure he doesnt want to go to the Tigers it would be simple. Or maybe there are more than two teams that could use a SOO half and a good coach?

Then explain to me how the Tigers are in any different position to two weeks ago.
