how would you write his contract without infringing in his right to free speech?

Because in Australia we don’t have a right to free speech. We actually have no bill of rights at all. America does.

That is right there is no free speech in this country any one that thinks there is are dreaming .
The thousands that died in wars were in vain trying to protect the freedoms of speech and democracy that they believed in !
The country is being run by leftist media that practices trial by media at every opportunity, small minority groups , CEOs of large corporations that run there own agendas with the threat of withdrawal of sponsorship, modern free speech is only ok when it does not offend well that is not free speech that is suppression of speech !
I practice Free speech and no one will tell me any different no one …
Folau has the right to say what he wants ugly as it might be …that right was given to us by the tens of thousands of graves of our for fathers in distant countries sometimes we DO FORGET !

Yuck, that’s why Folau will never be allowed back in NRL, because it starts all this nonsense about free speech and our forefathers and “good old days” etc. etc.

The guy is intentionally divisive and bring out a toxic side of Australians.

I initially stated if he wins us games I’d have him. After reading a bunch of posts on this forum I don’t want him here simply because I can’t stand hearing that nonsense.

Anyone who thinks that someones sexual orientation makes them a good or bad person is a fool. Anyone who thinks that you should be able to state publicly that homosexuality leads to going to hell is also a fool. Keep your hate filled homophobic opinions to yourself.

If he won us games I’d have him. I don’t care for his views but to exclude him from our club just for that is stupid. Who cares what he thinks. I’d prefer Latrell though.

When it comes to the question a player like Folau is exactly what we need. A big fast fullback who can turn a game.

How typical, Burgess case determined in about 3 weeks…How long did matulinos take?..NRL helping them sign latrell…I’m convinced that’s what his manager has been stalling things for…grubs

That’s alright. As many others have said; If he doesn’t want to be here then so be it. We’ll move on. Wests Tigers have their ducks in a row and are heading for greatness. Have confidence in our Coaches, CEO and Board.

Great post.

My point is, if you miss out on a Ferrari at auction you don’t go and buy a Kia the next day. You’re either in the market for premium players, or for solid first graders, Ivan paid premium money for solid first graders. The fact we don’t want to do that anymore is probably a big reason why we seem to be “missing out” and we should be happy with that.

Yep. Spot on.

If you want to lose weight and be healthy eat a whole food plant based diet. I don’t do this to anywhere near the level I should but there is a tonne of evidence a diet predominantly based on unprocessed plant foods is the healthiest diet for humans.

You will lose weight and put the odds in your favor in relation to not developing a huge number of illnesses such as cancer and all sorts of cardiovascular diseases.

You don’t have to be vegan but meat should be eaten sparingly.

Whatever you do stay away from any high meat/low carb diet. It’s really bad for you.

Unbelievable …more players that don’t want to come here

I wonder why ??

Sick of you moaning…Nellie…

The negativity is so over the top with some posters isn’t it. Yes we are the worst club of all time and no one likes us.

I would just like to know how true this latest rumour is. After all rumours are just rumours.

If we’ve learnt anything it is never to trust social media rumours. There is nothing done until it’s official.

@TIGER said in Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion:

So yes it is clear he doesn’t want to be at the Roosters playing in the centres on 800k or he wouldn’t be looking elsewhere.

That is correct.

Souths definitely out …from a very reliable source reportedly. The options are thinning like my hair.

And yet he still hasn’t signed the best offer by far, the biggest contract the Tigers have ever offered in our history.
An offer to play his prefered position.

Does this tell us anything??? Hmmmmm

I could be wrong but I think you are stating it’s the club that has problems but maybe it’s Latrell. Can you explain why he didn’t sign with the Rorters. Are they also an undesirable club ? Why hasn’t he signed elsewhere ?

Does that tell you anything ?

What makes you think I’m saying the club has problems?

How could I possibly know why he didn’t sign with the Roosters? Or us? Or elsewhere?
I’m not him.

But it’s obvious he doesn’t want to play for us, why?
I have no idea, and I’m not going to pretend I know.
These are questions for Latrell.

Do you know? Please tell me

I think you are missing the point. I don’t think that this has anything to do with our club. I think this is about Latrell having no idea what he wants to do. He can’t commit himself anywhere because he isn’t ready. That is the reason he hasn’t signed at the Roosters. You may as well state that he clearly doesn’t want to be at the Roosters.

I think it’s obvious he doesn’t want to worry about contracts at this point. That could change tomorrow but currently he can’t sign anywhere. The problem is at the same time his manager is out there trying to get a contract for his client.

I could see this changing next year or earlier and us signing him. I’m not stating that is going to happen. Maybe Latrell needs a year or two to figure himself out. The club has to move on and that is cool. If Latrell is ready to talk at a later point in time and we have the money then we might talk.

Why did the Roosters pull their offer? But the problem’s us of course.

Exactly. I get that we aren’t a high performing club right now but we seem to be doing a lot of things right. Players will come if we offer the right money assuming they are interested in actually playing rugby league in the NRL.

I think the issue is becoming more and more about us picking the right player.
