WT Nation
5 hrs ·
The club has been put off by his current salary, however, and will not be interested without a financial contribution from South Sydney.

#WTNation

WT Nation is the Clubs media dept’s FB page…

Seems odd that the club would run two separate pages.

There also has to be some objectivity about where the club is at presently and where it has come from.
Blind Freddy knows that to be successful on the field you need to be financially sound off it. You can’t have one without the other. So to be so dismissive of those improvements as if they are insignificant, stinks of someone with a cross to bare rather than someone who wants to discuss things rationally. Blanket blaming is a cop out and identifies nothing - “the club” we have at the moment is nothing like “the club” it was 5 years ago and nor are the people making the decisions.

I don’t have a cross to bear at all. Why would I? I’m a supporter of the club and I want us to be successful. It’s something i’ve invested significant time and money in throughout my life. However, i’m also going to call it as I see it and until we start to see some success on the field I won’t be satisfied.

I agree with you completely!

We could be the best financial club in the competition and that doesn’t mean anything until it translates to result on the field.

For too long have we said things will be better next year and its not, now here we are in January and we already have people saying we are building for next year, or we are signing up all the best juniors and we have to be patient. I was patient when we had the last crop of “best juniors” coming through and that got us nowhere, even when we had them a couple of years into their careers we still missed the finals. I was here when people, including myself, were saying the independent board would deliver results, it didn’t.

I am just as excited as anyone about the juniors we have attracted, but I am ready for us to see improvements on the field now, not in 1-2 years time. I will still be here no matter what, I’ll be in my seats at all grounds and travel to Tamworth no matter what. For those saying to be patient and having a go at people who want improvements now, we are allowed to be sceptical because for the last 9 years all this club has shown is failure.

I think we all feel that way. I think you’d be hard pressed finding anyone on this forum who isn’t sick of waiting to be competitive again. Just because people have a different outlook and are prepared to be positive about some aspects of the club, it does not preclude them from being critical, or sceptical, about others.

Agree with you @Cultured_Bogan but I’ve noticed that a lot of people who are being critical are having their support of the club questioned and I think that is just wrong!

Yeah as I’ve already pointed out, there’s plenty of crap being slung by those people as well. Heads in sand, accepting mediocrity, etc.

But I digress…

Doueihi would have had some of his current year contract already covered by South’s would he not have? Surely that would get taken into consideration by WT for signing him…

Latrell M was paid $117k by the Roosters so far this year for his contract according to reports. That’s a decent amount of the annual sum - could be 20-30%

Good point, Nov, Dec, and part of Jan paid, thats maybe 25%…

Edit: So if he is on $500k, $125 is already paid. $375 would be alright and thats with Souths paying no more.

Then you free up cap space for South’s to go chasing JAC, smart move.

I’d be wanting them to cover more again, and for 2021.

I am still stunned Doueihi is on 500K. There is NO way Souths are cap compliant if he’s on something that insane when they have Gagai, AJ, Walker, Reynolds etc etc etc

Also forgot they brought back Bryson Goodwin. Just collecting backs…

Who said Douehi is on 500 k

Article posted a few pages back. True or not, I don’t know, but that’s where that came from.

OK …yeah I highly doubt anyone would be paying 500 k for a fringe player …well maybe us …but not a real club

Give it a rest. Why do you bother to support the club?

Because I have a heavy investment …43 years …1st year since the WT’s I didn’t re join as a member

Its about time this club repaid ALL of us for our investments

And lastly it’s simple …don’t like my posts , put me on foe or don’t read them , no one stuck a gun to your head

Will do. I’ve been following magpies since 1965 and WT since inception, I too have a big emotional investment in the club. Anyhow I haven’t made foes before on forums but I think I’ll have to here. Cheers.

Funny how some think they have some God given right to tell others how to support their club

Kinda like when you imply that people are idiots because they consider the club to be making the right moves by doing better in the front office and slagging people for “accepting mediocrity?”

No not at all , as I always say it just surprises me how intelligent people (like yourself ) openly put up with this club’s ineptitude but will hang players who leave us out to dry

Its just hypocritical in my opinion …it’s never the clubs fault …ever

Yeah Yeah I know we will turn it round next year …

And you reinforce my point in your reply, you’re a hypocrite.

I’ve been critical of the club in the past. I certainly believe things should be better, but you can’t correct nearly 2 decades of mismanagement in a few months. Since when is being pragmatic and realistic excusing ineptitude? It’s not black and white.

Maybe because I don’t adopt the black or white approach like you do that’s not good enough? Perhaps follow your own advice and foe those you have the issue with.

A bit hypocritical to take pot shots at some for imposing their views on you when you’ve harangued others for the way they choose to voice their support for the club.

Titans confirmed that Souths offered them a winger.
Didn’t mention who.

Gagai or AJ you would assume

Probably Gagai. Huge biscuits and not living up to the price tag.

@Tigerstar said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

How about we take Douhie on full wage if south’s give us Gagai for Packer in a straight swap

No to Gagai. I’d take AJ a million times over before Gagai.

Doueihi was signed from reserves to Souths wasn’t he? How on Earth is he on a massively backended deal? I don’t remember there being multiple clubs vying for his signature.
