Well if that comment ‘regret’ stings Wests Tigers fans, then let him know how you feel and get down to Leichhardt Oval for the Round 10 game.

Flights are already booked, this is my once a year Leichhardt game.
Can’t wait to stand on the hill chanting my guts out.

Is it true that Souffs will be known as the Redfern All Blacks this seasons

And we will be known as the Campbelltown Cellar Dwellers

Saying no to Michael Maguire
Mitchell’s comment on Monday about how he would have regretted a move to the Wests Tigers was not intended as a shot that club or coach Michael Maguire. Matt Mitchell said his son’s comment rather suggested that if he had accepted that deal two weeks ago the Souths opportunity that came up wouldn’t have eventuated.

“Look, he was real close to signing with the Wests Tigers but I think that Wayne Bennett chat just got him over the line,” Matt Mitchell said.

"He really likes and respects Michael Maguire. He thought he was a real man’s man and he loved the way he spoke to him. Latrell said he was straight up as well which Trell really liked.

“And he knows [Wests Tigers general manager of football] Adam Hartigan. Adam coached both my boys at the Roosters in under 20s and he felt comfortable there.”

Mate, I’ve got room for you here and I’d love to coach you

Wayne Bennett’s words to Latrell Mitchell

Back up, we have a brand to protect now. Don’t want to be seen as a petulant grub.

I’m glad he took the effort to clarify after Fox ran with the “snubbed” header.

What’s stopping us doing the same? We chucked $600k at a 35 year old Farah. Why not at a player that has a use?

If there was any person I wouldn’t be offering brown paper bags to it would be Latrell

His management team would have him threatening Crowe if he didn’t kick in more brown bags they go to the press

After reading that story I’m glad he’s gone to the crap hole club he belongs at.
I’ll leave it at that so I don’t get booted off the forum.

Ive been thinking about this, and this bypassing of the cap that Souths have done shouls be an ATO matter.

If LM took our $1m/year deal (lets say it was an even $1m) then he has to pay tax on that, and he gets maybe $650k after tax.

But taking Souths $600k, he gets maybe $450k. Now you add the benefits given to his hanger-ons, and theres no income tax on that, so it just takes another $200k and hes broken even.

Souths (& likely the Roosters, and Storm) are cheating the ATO out of taxes that the players should be paying.

So is James Packer and his mates… and 70% of Australians via their returns

Who would of thought that the Roosters showed our club some respect and help in the LM saga ! Unlike that low rent club at Redfern …especially when there greatest ever signing was not pulled into line basically intimating OUR club is garbage and would of been one of his greatest mistakes he could of made !
Lets hope the players at our club do not forget what was said and how low and insignificant that the club at Redfern think there talent and the jersey the wear actual is !
