Why ultimatum? Just start hunting the next target, if the next target signs you remove the previous offer. We just need to keep moving forward.

Dont mind the game at Tamworth. Its the Bankwest fiasco of playing our home game against Parra @ Parra that pisses me off.

I’ll be honest lads, I’m about done with the entire Latrell saga. I’ve been lead to believe that an offer has been tabled, for not only the position but at the dollars he is asking, he has even spoken to other clubs even after the tigers made him an offer, there is no one else and he still hasn’t signed. I might be a bit thin skinned, but that feels a bit disrespectful to me, he should either knock it back or put pen to paper, or the tigers
rescind the offer, just so all parties can move forward.

How do you know the Cows haven’t offered him more money but his preference is us so he is just weighing it up. Long shot i know, but at the end of the day we do not know who has said what, who has offered what, and what they are offering. Stories from the Tele who today referred to FRNSW as the Royal Fire Service…thats the kind of journalism people are hanging off.
All we really know for a fact, is we want want him. Our Chair has been quoted. Until anything else comes around, thats the ONLY facts we have.

would it be possible for the tigers to chase Val Holmes?

Although i reckon LM is better.

could we chase both?

I don’t really rate Holmes. He’s a decent winger but that’s pretty much it. $1m for him is obscene.

He went ballistic at the back end of 2018 at fullback. In 12 games he scored 13 tries, had 9 try assists and 52 tackle breaks. He was one of the form players in the game for that (admittedly brief) period. Query whether he’ll be able to go close to replicating that after his time out of the game and different training regime…

My oath he did. Anyone that played supercoach and didn’t have him (me) was getting rolled by Holmes alone. I din’t think the guy was going to be a fullback, but boy did he prove me wrong.

@Spacecub And yet only a couple of days ago they said they weren’t going to pursue him. What a circus this whole thing is. Nothing will be taken as gospel until a signature is on the dotted line no matter who it is for.

It’s all fun until someone gets hurt …

What will happen if Latrell walks into Robbo’s office , stands on his chair and says “Captain my captain”

don’t go there. The great flood would follow all the tears shed on here.

I see @happy_tiger negative nellie chicken little toad digesting has infected WTF…

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 possible comment of the off-season!!!

What …because I understand that footy games aren’t won by outside backs

Because I understand we lost arguably our best forward and then arguably our 2nd best forward when fit

Said it a million times , you might have the best 7,6 and 1 those blokes in the 8,10,11,12 and 13 jerseys can’t build a platform you lose a lot of footy games

Sorry for the dose of reality

Yeah they sucked so much I’m amazed we got to 9th…like ever

Can’t believe people are going to be disappointed to sign Latrell Mitchell…

Gee Geo 9th …easily satisfied

Not knocking his signing IF it happens …my issue is people’s expectation if he does sign …we won’t become contenders overnight

And you know we need forwards badly …we are massively undermanned for 2020 in the forwards

If we have spent a million it only leaves 700 k for 4 players …we will get some absolute superstars for that money …especially back rowers and props

Yeah we may not make the 8 again. The thing is it has been mooted we will have 5 million available in 2021. Now even if you take out 1 million for Mitchell, that still leaves plenty of money to build up the side nicely around him.
I agree with what you are saying, but Mitchell is available now, so we have to act now.

@2005magic https://www.weststigers.com.au/news/2019/11/08/wests-tigers-deliver-get-out-get-deadly-program/ Probably not the best name for a cause, but at least we are involved in trying to facilitate positive engagement with Indig youth. Latrell would be an ideal Role Model if he was part of this Campaign.

Apparently ‘get deadly’ is a hugely common and popular phrase amongst indigenous Australians. It’s not as bad as it literally sounds.

100% it is. When i first saw it i thought it was a great step in the right direction for our club.

@Furious1 said in Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion:

You’d have to think if Mitchell spoke to any of our ex players i.e Matterson, Tedesco and now maybe even Marsters, there wouldn’t be too much said in our favour.

To be honest, i want Mitchell here, but a part of me just wants to see him sort out everything he needs to in his private life so he can become the player that he should be. If that happens to be at another club, then as much as it will grate on me it’s not with us, so be it.

I can’t see how Matterson or tedesco could slag the club.

Matterson left because Madge trained the poor battler too hard and he wanted more money

Tedesco left to win premierships and make more money.

It’s not as though the club hasn’t tried to sign quality players in the past, and surely players can see the current management righting the ship

Of course the club has tried, but you pretty much answered your own statement.

Matto left because he didn’t enjoy his time here ( allegedly)
Tedesco left to win and get rich

A few scenarios - Mitchell to Matto “whats it like at WT? " Mattos reply " Madge is prick”

Mitchell to Teddy " whats it like at WT?" Teddys’ reply " I dunno, i was born on Bondi Beach, but if you want stuff for free and to win i wouldn’t go there, besides if i wasn’t playing for the Roosters, id probably playing for the Camden Rams cause,you know, they’re red white and blue".

Of course i could be wrong and both their replies might be " awesome place, but i don’t want to win premierships so i left".

( Disclaimer : I hope you take that in the spirit intended Lukey boy 😉 )
