If this is true, we have to up the ante and bump our offer. Offer him 1.3 if that’s what it takes. I know it’s overs, it’s obvious that’s what it will take to get him here. We’re having no luck, so desperate times call for desperate measures.

Trouble is what we have offered him and then withdrawn was way overs in my opinion. Now people are talking about another 300,000 per year.

How far above overs do you go?

Yes, yes, as far as it takes to get him… No! the offer we tabled is too much.

850k per year would be my offer. I don’t think he is a million dollar player…Yet!

‘Yet’ that’s the key word, why not get him on board now?
It is a risk, but the positives out weigh the negatives in my opinion, sadly, we are used to dud signings already, if it goes bad we can handle it.

You mean have a waste of 1 mill for another three years. Not worth the money - too big a risk. I know we are desperate but…

I don’t think it will be a waste, we have the cash that we have to spend, we need what he can potentially offer.
It’s a risk, but Not a waste.
We’ve signed a lot players at an ‘Overs Rate’.
Latrell is 22, he will only get better over the next few years.

What if he decides that he doesn’t like it at the WT’s as some of the other players have done and wants to break his contract (hopefully WT’s have learned by their mistakes and put a clause in which will not allow him to do that ) I’m sick of these players that want out as soon as they get sick of it for whatever reason.

But of course we don’t know that he is going to sign with us- I’ll be surprised if he does😠

That would be the risk, and if he decides to back out after year one then at least we have more cash to spend on other quality players for 2021.
As many ppl have said in this forum, we need to pay overs at this point to draw in big names, hopefully next season our on field performance will show the direction we want to go, we need change, 9th place isn’t good enough.

This is totally just me reading the tea leaves, and I have zero to back this up, but my take on Buzz’s tweet is that it might just mean that he has heard/knows we are talking to him again.

Despite the media constantly writing about Latrell, there is total silence of actual facts for a couple of weeks. Nothing new has happened or been said. Perhaps (hopeful thinking) we are talking to him behind the scenes and naking things happen.

Yeh, there is no Actual Factuals at this point.
Only authentic source will be from the tigers themselves stating they are in talks again or an official announcement.

They’d be silly to announce it again though. How bad would it look if they got rejected twice! especially after all the news around tigers pulling their offer. I think the only LM news we will ever here from Wests is if they announce his signing.

The point I was making is that we are all over the speculations, I’m not saying The Tigers should announce they are in talks again, just saying nothing should be taken serious until we have a valid source with merit.
That source being the Tigers themselves, not reporters, not friends of a friend who knows a guy etc.

@TigerTone said in Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion:

i dont think we should up the offer to get his signature. i say stick to the $3.8 for the 4 years.
reason why i say that is because , later on down the track
when we want to sign someone else , will they then run us through the same rings as Latrel
and his management have this time so we can up our offer to sign them aswell.

At the moment there is a lack of options, If there was other quality players atm I’m sure we would pursue them.
Can’t deny that if we sign Latrell that it strengthens the team.
My worry is his attitude, he has the potential.

I agree, he would be worth that to our club.

The way i see it, you can’t go back at him with the same offer from before. He’ll just reject it again. If we really want him, you have to offer him more.

The whole LM Saga just needs to end, I feel even if the tigers pay overs, it will help the club further down the line when making attempts to sign other big name players, and getting our current players to recommit to the tigers.

It did, a week a go. If it’s true and we’re going back to him, it shows how desperate we are. Which isn’t a bad thing, cos it means we probably won’t give up till we land a big name.

We took the contract off the table, to only place it on the bench so to speak.

So Moylan chooses to recommit to the sharks (thank god) and now tigers pursuing Latrell again?
Best to just sit back and wait to hear any official announcements, I think we are all over speculations and rumors etc at his point.

Who believes anything an agent says…seriously.

I think due to recent events, the only TRUE confirmation is when tigers officially announce it lol.
