This will make tiger fan happy.


When you've got a lot of big-name players coming off contract, they want to know who the coach is before they re-sign. You're talking to Tedesco, Moses and Woods. All three were ready to sign, mate. All three. But Des didn't want Mitchell Moses because he said he wasn't the style of player and couldn't play the footy he wanted to play. Des said, He's not good enough to play. All three were done. Then Des wasn't convinced on Moses. I organised a personal meeting with Tedesco and Woods with Des Hasler. And they tried to convince Des Hasler that Mitchell was our man. Tedesco said, "I want to play for the Dogs but I need to know who the halves will be. If you sign Mitchell, I will sign tomorrow. I'm with you". Des said no. I remember both those players were prepared to sacrifice part of their contacts to bring Mitchell over. But once again, it was Des' call.

Helps go to explain the dragging heels, and looks as if maybe they never intended to stay at WT.

Deep down I think Woods would be seething. You could tell he had established a very good relationship with Cleary. Sad in a way, he could been a one club man. Instead, he went through a period where he believed he was bigger than the club and made a decision he’ll always regret.

I think you're half right. He certainly will regret it in the short term, but the Dogs aren't a club that tolerate poor performance for too long. They'll bounce back in a year or two and Woods may find himself regularly singing the team song.

I really never want to hear about those 3 players ever again. Regardless of the context.

Shame the dogs didn't get all 3. The demands that could have followed after all 3 signed. Dogs got lucky I reckon.

What a complete disgrace to the Club Woods was. The guy was apparently our Captain yet was activley encouraging our star players to sign elsewhere. Compare him to James Graham who offered to take a pay cut to keep his players. Woods is scum, I'm so glad light has been shed on who he is really is.

It probably puts M Moses petulant behaviour with us last year into better perspective now. I always thought that Cleary taking their contracts off the table was the root cause of Moses petulance but now it seems Cleary didn’t want him at his asking price and Hasler didn’t want him at all.

His ego took a huge battering.

Ah fate, they all wanted to stay together, not here but at the Dogs - now they are all alone at separate clubs. Didums.

Maybe Cleary knew what was going on and what the 3 were really up to. So instead of playing there game he changed the rules to take back control for himself and the club.

Quite possibly, but I think there will be a bit of pain for at least this year. I thought it was pretty damning when the rumours were swirling that he might backflip and when asked he never quashed it, he said “I don’t know what’s happening”. Not the words of somebody who was happy with his decision.
