Sounds to me as we have publicly removed our offer so we can work on this behind the scenes with out any pressure fingers crossed anyways

The POM explained why. Mitchell himself isn’t the issue, it’s his manager who happens to be the roadblock.

So are you saying that Mitchell really really really wants to play for us but his manager is preventing that happening?

If Mitchell wanted to be a Tiger he would have signed, it’s that simple.

Seriously, not again

You don’t have to involve yourself if you don’t like it, i wasn’t replying to you, you seem to just like complaining.
Go do the dishes or something.

Wow, that’s ironic.

Oh so you understand irony, I’m surprised because you don’t seem to understand much else

Good, now that’s out of your system, can you tell us where Latrell does want to go, because I’m struggling. He’s had a couple clubs interested and has not committed to any of them. The Cows asked him what most appeals about Townsville and he said fishing and shooting. The guys mind is clearly not on the game atm. The more I think of it, you’re probably right, he probably doesn’t wanna play for us. It sounds like he doesn’t wanna play for anyone atm.

I have no idea, he doesn’t seem to know what he wants so how could I possibly know.

My guess is he’ll end up at Souths somehow, sometime but it’s just a guess on a hunch.

So you concede he doesn’t know what he wants, but mockingly repeat how he doesn’t want to play for us, as if that’s a reflection on us.

Never said I knew what he wants.

The fact he seems to have no other option plus
We offered him the money he wants
We offered him his prefered position in his prefered location and he still didn’t sign.

All that to me seems pretty clear he doesn’t want to play for us.

The club has concerns about his commitment to us, so imo they’re crazy to leave the door ajar for him.
Like I said before (and you might not agree and that’s ok) to me we’re the partner ending the relationship but leaving the back door open.

If we have serious enough concerns about his commitment that we pulled his contract, do we want him here on the coin we offered him?

You said he doesn’t seem to know what he wants. Probably true. But you’re using that as an indictment on us that ‘’ he doesn’t want to play for us’’. As if there’s something is wrong with us. You deny you used those words, but that attitude is dripping off your posts. You think the club are losers because they couldn’t basically kick a goal with a wide open net, with no goalie. You’re gloating, almost giddy about it. Then you acknowledge that he doesn’t know what he wants, meaning he could have turned us down for a lot of different reasons, pretty much contradicting yourself.

I’ll say it again, I never said I “know” what he “wants” to do.
It’s my opinion that his actions demonstrate that he “doesn’t” want to play for us.

If I say someone “doesn’t” want to do something.
it doesn’t mean I’m claiming i “do” know what they want to do.

I have no idea as to reasons why he doesn’t want to play for us, never claimed to know.

E.g
If I say I “don’t believe” Pixies exist
It’s not the same as saying
I “believe” that pixies don’t exist.

Understand the difference before you say I said something I didn’t, it’s neuanced but significant.

You don’t have to say it. It’s the way you come across. You were rubbing the club’s face in it. Deny it all you like.

Yes I’m saying the club are fools for leaving the back door open for a player that has already demonstrated to them that he’s not commited to playing for them.
I also think fans are fools for believing that he’d sign with us to begin with.

If you disagree, that’s fine, but it’s my opinion and this forum is a place to share our opinions is it not?

I guess so. Even if you have to smash us over the head with it 20 plus times. Just in case you weren’t clear the first time.

I wouldn’t have had to if people didn’t keep misrepresenting what I ACTUALLY said.
And writing what they THOUGHT I said.

And you also don’t have to involve yourself, if you don’t like what I say or what anyone else says, you don’t have to be here or read it or comment on it.

Either some people’s comprehension skills are poor or they read into things what they want to read, not what is actually being said, I’m sure you can also relate to this and understand the frustration.
When someone repeats your words back to you and gets you totally wrong it’s only natural to want to set the record straight.

Communication is a two way process. In my opinion it is a poor communicator who blames the other person (or people) for misunderstanding what they were trying to communicate, instead of looking at the way they trying to communicate it as well.

I think what annoyed people about your posts though @Tiger was that you were calling everyone else fools if they did not agree with you. Instead of saying what you think, you came across (to me anyway, and from other comments I don’t think I’m alone) saying you know how it is, and anyone who doesn’t see that is a fool. People generally don’t like being referred to as fools. Opinions are like bumholes, everyone’s got one, and none are more “right” than any other.

But what do I know, just my opinion, and yes I see the irony in writing my opinion about opinions…

Yes it’s my opinion that whoever thought Mitchell would seriously end up at the Tigers are fools, I think they’ve been fooled.

If you don’t like it, I can’t help that.

If you think I’m a fool for believing something, that’s fine, I won’t cry about it, you’re entitled to your opinion just like you said.

If Mitchell does end up here I’m sure you’re all going to be calling me a fool, and I’ll laugh my ass off about it.

The issue is that your posts came across as quite aggressive and condescending, now that may not have been your intention and I don’t care one way or the other as I have a number of people who have blocked me because they do not like the style of my posts, hello @MAGPIES1963 .

You may be right and he may not ever have wanted to come here, but that does not making people fools for getting excited and wrapped up in the hype. It would be like calling my 6 year old daughter a fool for believing in Santa. You seem to be on a mission to take people’s hope and belief away, it is fine if you are, but you shouldn’t be surprised when you get a little attitude back along the way!

so here we are talking about backs only, I still believe we need a senior prop and a very good backrower, because if u don’t win the battle up front it really doesn’t matter what u got out the back.

Leilua and Garner are a pretty good backrow. And with Musgrove and Stefano signing I don’t think we’re looking too bad in the middle either.

Nicely understated. And if Packer fires this season we will have a great pack.

Packer couldn’t fire if he was a jiffy in a room full of arsonists.

Negative Nelly here…

Come on mate…have a bit of faith in the bloke

I think Packer is finished as an NRL quality player.
If you think that’s negative I can’t help that, I’m just giving my honest opinion based on my observation of him, I think the game has passed him by.

But that is an uneducated observation as you are unaware of what injuries he may have been carrying and how the injuries are now!

Not on Netflix… The Mandalorian is awesome tho

Worth getting Disney+ for?

It’s good. But for one series I’m not sure if it’s worth it for that alone. More worth it if you love all the other stuff that comes with Disney+

I love Star Wars and have a 6 year old daughter so was thinking about getting it for her for Christmas! lol

Yep it obvious that Madge & co are after a game changing fullback. Sadly though, despite our best efforts to secure one over recent months (DWZ no cap space & Mitchell not committing) we still don’t have one and available stocks have dwindled. I think the enquiring after JAC was perhaps a desperate measure by our management to acquire a fullback, or at least some speed in the backline, also.

Thommo is a great player and I can’t fault his commitment every game, we are lucky to have him, but he not a genuine fullback in the class of the fullbacks that are in the top performing teams from last season. When I look at the list I can see the importance of having a gun fullback.
Roosters - Tedesco, Storm - Hughes/Papenhyzen, Raiders - CNK, Manly - Tom Turbo, Eels - Gutho, Souths - Douehi (a rising star). I don’t think it was any coincidence that the Bulldogs started to perform better when DWZ joined their ranks either.

That said there are still those couple of teams (Newcastle and Warriors) who have great fullbacks, yet they failed to perform overall, which is more an indication of problems within their ranks than anything else. RTS was once again outstanding in a side that just never ever lives up to expectations. He is wasted in such a team, imo. Not sure of his contract situation or of his desire to stay in NZ but he’d be an ideal fullback for us I reckon 😁

However I think the reality is if Madge is set on getting a genuine fullback for next season then the only possible options left now are the ones we’ve already mentioned on here - Milford or Moylan. Not fantastic, but perhaps it could work out. Otherwise it will be more of Thommo or Mbye having to play out of their natural positions again or maybe Brad Abbey will step up, who knows?

Mbye on 2018 form would slot in there nicely, its whether he achieves that again!

Farah was an elderly man, Marsters was useless last year (we have at least three better centres - Mbye, Momo, Talau) and we got Big Lucy for the Slimy Eel.

That maybe the case in regards to Farah but we don’t actually have a hooker for much of 2020!

Reynolds will do the job. He went well there in the last few games of the season - we went on a winning streak - and he said he’s happy to play there.

No he is not a hooker, his passing game from hooker is far too slow, his only positive is his running game late the match!

He doesn’t get me buzzing like Mitchell did, idk. He’d be great to have. Quickest player in the game. Daylight second.

Wingers don’t have the same impact on a team that a fullback does!
