Yes Watto. it would be good timing for a sneaky raid.
The Roosters will be under scrutiny with every offer and approach to their players, particularly after Buzz released those figures. We should use the Tellycraps figures supplied to them most likely by Roosters because they were feeling the heat on their TPA’s and cap pressure.
If I were Pascoe (or David Warwick) I would approach Joe Kelly, Politis and Co, with a proposal.
*Either release Tetevano (listed at $120K) and Sio Siua Taukeiaho listed at $150K) for an upgrade to the WTs or……we start making public upgraded offers in the Media to each Roosters player listed at $350K or less by the Daily Telegraph . Each week we will give Buzz or someone else at the Telly the heads up that we have offered playX say $50k or more than what they printed.
By about week six when all no one has left the Roosters the heat about their TPA’s will be at boiling point. They have 12 players listed at $350K or less. That’s at lot of heat and speculation in the media they would like to avoid.
Latrell Mitchell $350,000, Ryan Matterson $200,000, Daniel Tupou $220,000, Mitchell Aubusson $280,000, Isaac Liu $200,000, Michael Gordon $250,000, Jayden Nikorima $350,000, Zane Tetevano $120,000, Sio Siua Taukeiaho $150,000, Joseph Manu $150,000, Nat Butcher $200,000, Victor Radley $120,000
The time to act is now. While it’s still fresh.
