So now we’re saying the door is still open???

If we’ve pulled the offer the door should be closed, otherwise what does it actually mean to pull the offer?

This is just ridiculous now.

We’ve either closed the door or we haven’t, if we haven’t, then the offer hasn’t been pulled.

Seems like he’s called our bluff

Nothing is as black and white as you make out. It’s always shades of grey. The dichotomy is false. Personally I am happy the door is still open. Doesn’t mean he will come but it is good business sense.

So now he knows the offer hasn’t been withdrawn and we’re still waiting for him, so nothing has changed right?

You seem to only hear what you want to suit your agenda. In contract law there is offer and acceptance, we made an offer which he can accept or not, at this stage he has not.

However that money offered is tied up until such time he accepts the offer or not which means we can’t offer that money to anyone else.

Withdrawing the offer means we are no longer by law obligated to provide that contract and we can offer that money to someone else. If Latrell comes back to us before that money is used then the door is open, if the money has already been used to sign another player then the offer won’t be the same.

C’mon man, Latrell is just laughing at us now.

He’s played us the whole time, now he’s making us look stupid and desperate, if he wanted to be here he would have signed already.
Now we’re pretending to be tough and come across as if we’re in control by saying we’ve “pulled his offer”
But then come across like fools by saying “but the door is still open” (if you want to wipe your feet on us again one last time)

It’s the old “you didn’t fire me, I quit” game and we’re losing.

WAKE UP you fools

WOW. you should stop posting about this, you are making a fool of yourself.

We’ll see who the fool is, I’m betting it’s all the Tigers fans who still think Latrell wants to be a Tiger.

Ahh the emotions of the forum…Take the POM at his word and move on. Latrell wasn’t the issue in all of this, it’s another peanut manager thinking he can play clubs off of each other that’s the problem.

See this is what I don’t understand. Can’t these ‘adult’ players make a decision on their own without having to cowtow to their manager’s wishes? If they want to accept the offer and they don’t agree with the way their manager is handling things, can’t they just override them? It’s their life and their career after all.

Mitchell was never coming here …

How dare you say that!!!

Apparently Mitchell really really really wanted to be a Tiger but his manager hog tied and gagged him

I don’t think you understand just how stupid you sound. Because, as The Pom said… This ordeal is far from over. Latrell Mitchell is still clubless as far as 2021 stands and most likely will not want to be playing reserve grade throughout 2020. So, it remains, where will he sign? Not the Titans, despite their persistent interest, because, as Mal said: They only have $100k in their cap. Definitely not the Cowboys, they have Val now. Souths won’t have their Burgess money til atleast mid 2020, and Roosters will not release him to Souths.

So, unless Latrell wants to take the unappealing route and play reggies for a year I think we’ll see that this pulled offer is more of a warning or a “shot across the bow” as Pom described it. They’ll be back. Now enough of your dribble please.

Do we really want him after all this?

It’s obvious he doesn’t want to be here or he would have accepted the first offer.

You said you rated him so yes we still want him.

We can rate him all we like, the question is, does he rate us?

@TIGER …Yep the doors open if they want to walk through it, but what he said was they are now looking at other players and are not going to lock up a million dollars till LM makes his mind up.
Smart move by the Tigers

So nothing has changed, we’re still waiting for Mitchell, we’re just playing semantics with the words “closed door” and “contract pulled”

The contract is still there if he wants it (it was never pulled) the door is still open (it was never closed) so the ball is still firmly in his court, nothing has changed other than we muttered the words “contract pulled” for a few hours to try to bluff and hurry him up.

This is a bigger joke than I ever imagined, we just look really ready desperate now

Pascoe said the doors shut …
The doggy door and the cat flap !

Those saying the doors ajar are just living in hope lol

If you are so confident, how bout you quit the forum if he does end up here. You wouldn’t have to face us, and we wouldn’t have to read your rubbish ever again. Everyone wins.

Last effort, it doesn’t matter what LM wants now, as we don’t have a contract offer in play for him.
Should he change his mind and come back and see us, then we will decide if we want to offer him another contract.

ATM, our dealings with him have finished.

Can’t believe people are choosing to ignore THE_POM and continue to post stuff like “this guy has an attitude problem”, “too big for WT”, etc.

The POM is a person who sometimes posts things about what’s happening within the club. I think he (or she) knows someone who knows things about the goings on within the club. A few people are in that position, and the POM I believe is one.

If Latrell is/was serious about accepting the offer from WT, he needs to boot his manager. How do we know that any additional contract requests were instigated by Latrell and not, for pure self interest, by his manager?

I am sure that Lattrell’s destination will be locked in less than 48 hours after you are looking at this post.
