@Glenn5150 said in Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion:
Opinions to NRL players from two unhappy recent ex-Wests tigers together with some South Sydney players who had been coached by Madge may have had a lot to do with West Tigers recent unfair reputation.
Not having a crack at you Newtown but what do all those saying “we can’t attract players because Madge is too tough” suggest?
The day the club replaces a coach because he was “too tough “ on players is the day the club signs up for another decade of poor performance and my last day as a supporter
I am sure that in this thread there was a statement from Wests tigers following their first meeting with Lattrell Mitchell. The statement read that the offer was taken away from Mitchell because he did not want to take part in any extra training sessions (as did Matterson by the way). The statement also said that another reason why the offer to Mitchell was withdarwn was because Mitchell wanted to visit Taree at various times during the season and Wests Tigers also would not comply with this requirement.
No wonder the club did not have any further discussions with Mitchell.
I dont recall any statement of that nature by the club so it would be good if you could provide it.
I am sure that statement from the club was in this thread. I will try to find it but this thread has over 500 entries.
I really dont think that statement was from the club Newtown, it was media or fan speculation. Happy to be proven wrong.
