Contract talk creating drama at Concord

    @Geo I think so?? If you guys are thinking this is a serious concern/excuse for our club

    I think even chewing this fat is fruitless because Madge is 100% not going anywhere. ASAP

    You could always just stop reading this thread? Would that fix things?

    So he’s not going anywhere as soon as possible?

    The point is though the original OP is a direct article by Maguire himself not a random thread…I still don’t see why it should be shut because you don’t agree with other people’s opinion on the subject matter…if we started doing that every second thread would be closed down…

    Why would Maguire be spreading FAKE news…?



  • @weststigers not really, I believe it’s counter productive, in particular given the state of affairs within playing ranks ATM.

    You wouldn’t blame 3 losses on a row on a coach under any circumstances let alone a duel premiership winner only 13 rounds in.



  • @avocadoontoast despite your best intentions that won’t be happening haha. Have a good afternoon and agree to disagree obviously - have said my piece and if mods think this article means that Madge agrees with idea of player unrest and a lack of unity then we are all screwed… hopefully those who have made their beds in this thread are prepared to lay in it



  • @Geo did Madge use it as an excuse ?
    Question answers itself lol.✌️ out friend



  • @Geo give it 48 hours

  • Wests Tigers fullback Corey Thompson is poised to make a shock switch to Penrith in a move that will further escalate tensions between the clubs.

    The Herald can reveal Thompson is set to take up a two-year deal with the Panthers after rejecting the offer made by the joint-venture outfit. The diminutive fullback-winger is one of the most underrated players in the game, but has quickly become a favourite with Tigers fans for his whole-hearted performances.

    In a testament to how highly he is rated, coach Michael Maguire named him at fullback for the win against North Queensland despite initially buying captain Moses Mbye to fill the position.

    It was widely expected Thompson would re-sign with the Tigers, but the former Bulldog is set to take up a late offer from the western rivals. Panthers coach Ivan Cleary is a big fan of the 29-year-old from their time working together at Concord. Cleary convinced Thompson to join him at the foot of the mountains after a series of secret talks.

    There is no love lost between the clubs after Cleary left the Tigers for Penrith despite still having two years to run on his contract. Thompson’s deal represents the first time since then that the teams have engaged in a battle for the signature of an incumbent player.

    In a recent interview with the Herald, Thompson said he was looking for the security of a two-year deal after signing a series of one-season contracts.

    “The first two-year deal I had was at the very start at the Bulldogs,” he said.

    “I’m really working hard for a two-year deal. I think it’s a bit hard on the mind, just playing one-year deals, when you are always off contract.

    “Last year I was lucky, I re-signed in April so it was pretty much a two-year deal. I just want to work hard and show I’m an asset to the team.

  • Corey wants more than we are prepared to offer. Fair enough if you have someone better to replace him but considering our recent strike rate doesn’t instill great confidence.



  • I can understand Thompson wanting a two year contract and if Penrith are offering two years and more cash he would be mad not to accept.

    As for us we have to put a price on his value and walk away if it exceeds that. He has been great for us but he can be replaced, every extra dollar we spend on Thomo has to come off another contract.

    The irony of this is, Cleary is the reason we probably can’t offer Thomo what he wants and it is Cleary who is stealing him



  • Another question the CEO can answer why is this happening ? Please explain .A player that gives his all for the jersey and can win you games ! As I am reminded regularly you do have to fill 30 spots … the people that run this club a such losers !
