So the policy is to get rid of under performing players and pay a huge sum for another underperformer?

Is this about the long term future of the club or, a short term fix to save the coach?

The lack of organisation in attack and lack of resolve in general does not speak well for the coaching.

And the tryless games do not say much for Moses. Believe he had two of those for us. He would benefit so much from having a decent, mature halves partner like Benji next to him.
One of my sources is Pascoe

Wouldn't matter, he already thinks he knows it all and wouldn't listen to an experienced half anyway...

Even though I feel justified that my club let go a talented player.

I feel that we are truly justified that certain performance is directly associated.

Im gonna clock of all this Parra.

Im a TIGER Fanatic exclusively

Not for the first time they're paying the price for signing individual players with no semblance of an overall plan. Moses, Hayne and now Paulo. As if one fresh new apple will make the fruit bowl attractive again.

I think most things probably look more attractive by contrast when placed next to Junior Paulo's head.

Seriously?
I would take Brad Takairangi, Manu Mau for instance. Bevan French (yea not happening) or George Jennings would be good.
But I wouldn't be opening the bank account for them. Yes I would even take Jarryd Hayne for the right price (again not happening).

I notice too their team page has 3 people listed for 5/8 and none at Halfback.

Brown is the only one up front doing anything.

The rest of their pack are softer than a marshmallow fart.

Definitely take Brown - under Ivan and immersed in our current culture he would be good value, especially with Packer around him.
