    @Kazoo-Kid is Brimson available next seasond but? Or are we looking at him for 2021? I just think if we sign latrell it will bring more quality players to our club

    Most players discussed here are available for 2021. Anyone we want for 2020 we would need to probably sweeten the deal and pay a little extra.

    Easts have said if he signs for another team he can go now.

    So in other words, he has an offer elsewhere and Easts have withdrawn the offer as they are probably ready for the new suitor to take him on now.

    Only a couple of clubs with sort of coin to spend. Namely Souths and us, although Burgess hasn’t been given medical clearance yet so that could wind up causing drama.



  • 800k plus his choice of any used vehicle from a Parramatta Rd car yard as a TPA.

    Interesting. This would be good salary cap management, as that would allow them to front-load his current 450k and play a lesser player in his place.

    Smart move from the Roosters. If they’re going to lose him then better to move on quickly while there are still plenty of quality options free to be signed for 2021.

    so when would he move to the second row?

    Sorry, I don’t follow? Is Mitchell only on $450K at Easts?



  • Sounds like he or his manager believes he is worth $1m and the Roosters don’t or can’t. Letting him test the market probably confirms the $1m or so, hence the Roosters pulling the deal for $800k for a two year extension. Not sure what he was on in 2019 and 2020 and even if the offered upgrade kicked in from 2020 or 2021 but he can see he is missing out on a lot of money

    It’s different from Matterson as we hadn’t offered an upgrade

    From Latrell’s point of view taking a deal elsewhere will deliver him significantly more dollars for 2021 and beyond and even more if he moves in 2020, which sounds likely. If he did, he’s at least $600k better off on a 3 year $3m deal, even if he was going to be on $800k in 2020 which seems unlikely, so it’s likely even more than $600k over 3 years

    It’s an important contract for him and I don’t really think a two year extension was an overly respectful offer

    He should take it and go now if he can get $1m a year and I for one hope he does get it and that it’s from the Tiges



  • @Curly_Tiger it’s a tuff game you only get a few years at the top you gotta take it while you can



  • Actually, reading further, I do think he is on $450k in 2020 and the Roosters offer was $800k for each of 2021 & 2022, then he would be $950k better off if he took $3m over 3 years starting in 2020
    That’s why this is a thing, the Roosters had him at $450k per year in 2019 & 2020, it was mentioned in the recent SMH article (for what that’s worth) and actually lots of places

    @Kazoo-Kid said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

    If we want a new fullback, Brimson @ 500K is better than Latrell at 1M. Latrell would be worth it at 800K, maybe even 900K (risky), but no way is he a million dollar player.

    If you’re paying 900k what’s that extra 100k? might as well flick it at him

    100k could be the difference in retaining some of our lower and mid-tier players. Guys like Alex Twal, Luke Garner and Thomas Mikaele are on peanuts now, but will command more money in their next contract.

    Ordinarily I’d agree with this logic but keep in mind in 2021 we have MILLIONS in deadwood coming off the books and that $100K-$200K will be made up pretty easily.

    Consider the opportunity cost if we dont get him. If we missed out on him for $ 100K a year against the opportunity to draw players here, plus goal kicking etc.

    People are talking of a $300K difference between Brimson & Mitchell. I can see that kind of value in goal kicking and drawing other players easily.



  • People here bandy players values about as if they know the exact wages each should deserve.

    But value isn’t predetermined, it is decided by what the market will pay.

    A wealthy man stuck in the desert who is desperately thirsty will pay $10 for a bottle of water. He will consider it a bargain, even despite knowing that the avg punter only pays $3.

    We are that man in the desert.

    Latrell may not be worth $900k+ to the Roosters, but he is worth that to us.

    Smart move from the Roosters. If they’re going to lose him then better to move on quickly while there are still plenty of quality options free to be signed for 2021.

    People criticise Tigers for doing that with Taupau and Blake Austin.



  • Imagine Wests Tigers having an above average goal kicker.
