Moltzen's Price snub puts fire in the Dragons

Post by Discussion Bot » Tue 13 Mar, 2012 1:29 am

Dean Young has added spice to Friday night's grudge match against Wests Tigers at Kogarah, slamming Tim Moltzen for repeatedly ignoring the phone calls of Dragons coach Steve Price during the contract dispute between the clubs over his future.

''He went 2½ months without answering his phone when Pricey was trying to call him,'' Young told the Herald. ''I'm not disappointed that he is not at our club and I'm not disappointed at him wanting to stay at the Tigers. I'm just disappointed how he handled the situation and how he didn't have the decency to pick up the phone.''

Unwanted at Concord, Moltzen signed a three-year contract with the Dragons midway through last season but months later the Tigers controversially refused to grant him a release. The NRL salary cap auditor Ian Schubert was called in to referee a bitter spat between the two clubs before the Dragons effectively conceded defeat and decided not to make Moltzen commit to his agreement with them.

I just watched the first half against Manly again and i would just like to say from the point of view of a Moltsen knocker that his defense in the first half very impressive, especially hitting T-rexx low.
I hope he doesn't go missing against the dragons becouse the couple of passes and the one or two runs he made against Manly showed me enough that he is worth a few more weeks in the role.
But if he dogs it against the dragqueens ill be dirty.

This game will either make or break Moltzen IMO. If there has ever been a single most important game for Timmy, this is it. He is running out of time to prove he is the solution for the HB role, and he will most likely never receive as much attention from an opposition team as he will on Fri. I'll be interested to see how he handles all the attention and pressure. Good luck Tim!!

Such a non story. He was on contract until the end of this year, why bother even giving a rats about what St George think, especially Dean Young. He is the class act that prides himself on a bit of racial niggle against Robbie Farah if I recall.

Moltzen is bigger than this one game. If the Dragons target him, then good. It will leave a bit of space for our others to shine. He is a player of the future and I only hope he stays at WT beyond this year.

If I were Sheens I'd put the #1 on Moltzen and play him at half....that will really peeve the dragqueens fans off!

Lol now Dean Young has put the Tigers "on notice" and actually given this group of latte sippers a reason to turn up. Thanks for the inspiration idiot.

How long were they hanging onto this "story" so they could bring it out now before the game?

Didn't he go to Vegas late last year? I wouldn't answer my phone either.

Don't know why Young is worried about who Moltz plays for, if it wasnt for his Dad he wouldn't have played for St George either. Extremely average player who unbelievably was handed a Test and Origin jersey, and throw in racist!

Although he hasnt been creating the plays or controlling the team like we would like him to, atleast he isnt leaking points like Lui did. Aslong as his defence stays as good as it has been then im happy to give him time to settle into playing Half. We gave Lui about 2 years before he really started firing and the whole time he was a liabilty in defence.

Reckon you could be right AJ

Still think the guy who will have a massive game tonight will be Benji You don't take the piss from a guy's best mate

Hope Benji tears them a new one

Someone mentioned about holding onto this story for a while After copping a hiding like they did last week they will need something to pep them up pretty quickly for Friday's game

Dean Young was asked for his opinion and he gave an honest one. If you read the story, the only problem he has is that Moltzen didn't answer his phone when 'The Price is Right' was trying to ring him. Maybe Timmy should have let Benji take the call....

Have to say I agree with this, probably the most average player in the modern era to have earned a premiership ring.

What he says shouldn't faze Moltzen, hopefully he lets his game do the talking come Friday night.

He also had that "shoulder injury" so he couldn't physically pick up the phone... :mrgreen: Jeez Steven Price and Dean Young are so insensitive! :roll


Dean Young just did an Anthony Mundine - congratulations peanut. (Melbourne Storm comments back in 2000)

Tigers should come out and burn the dragons across the park. Moltzen should fire up after this.

I'll wait until the teams are posted before doing predicitons, but mine will make for interesting reading...

Good focus on Moltzen! will just give Benji and Robbie more room to move if the dragons are rushing up to smash Moltz.
