@Demps said in NETFLIX FINDS:

I also dont think he was gay and this was a weird angle for them to take.

A repressed gay man killing randoms cos hes angry.

I think there’s more to the story that only a few people know.

I think it is fairly common knowledge and not a revelation made by the doco.

@teddy23 said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

Sign BJ and then jump at Rapana who will be available a few weeks into the season at a cheap rate to form the Wests Tigers version of Leipana

A few weeks into the season? BJ will probably be suspended by then. Didn’t he miss most of last season with a neck injury?

I would chase Doueihi, but 500k would be absolutely max ( i wouldn’t even want to pay that), I can’t believe he is signed for more next year.

He would be first choice fullback this year, long term would depend on how he goes and who we can sign at the end of this season. Future would likely be as Benji’s long term replacement.

As previously stated I would steer well clear of AJ. He is off contract at the end of this season, not that good, and I don’t see clubs falling over themselves to sign him. Depending on how he goes this year, if we do want him we could pick him up where we have the negotiating power, and there is no current contract value to be met.

@Cairnstigers said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

South’s need forwards as they are heavy in backs
Titans need a forward or two if arrow goes
Melbourne only have 23 players signed
Sharks 4 spots to fill
Dragons 3 spots to fill
Canberra 2 spots to fill
Newcastle 2 spots
Parramatta 2 spots
Roosters 2 spots

We have 3 spots to fill

So a question

Where are all these players going to come from to fill these spots (development) ?
And
Why do the tigers have to make the 1st move
We have the Money but nothing to trade
Any club that releases a player has another spot to fill

A lot of these clubs have spots to fill, but no salary cap room left. They may be able to squeeze minimum contracts in, but a few will likely need to move players on to fill their 30

If Pascoe keeps trying to play hardball and we miss out on Douehi for the sake of $100k it will be a bad move for the club. He’s an excellent player that hasn’t yet reached his prime. He will increase our chances of making the 8 in 2020. No point going into March with $1m in the bank.

You’d be getting him for under 400k for 2020 as Souths have already paid him 3 months. Assuming the 500k figure is accurate.

Let him train with Souths till March then sign him…will only cost us $330k for 2020…

You’re talking as though they need to let him go. They probably don’t. We’re not doing them a favour taking Doueihi.

You’re right but maybe Doueihi needs to be realistic as well. Either he stays at Souths playing backup and collect $500k for two years stalling his development in the process or he accepts a reduced deal to join the Tigers.

Why should the Tigers be the ones that are wearing everything, by all reports Souths don’t “need” to move him on and would be happy to see him bide his time as backup so maybe it’s Doueihi that needs to give a bit as well.

a player cant reduce their deal, NRL wont allow it

He can get a release from Souths under whatever conditions that they two parties negotiate, and then sign a new contract for whatever amounts are agreed to.

A player can renegotiate a contract, they just cannot push salary back into later years of the (backend) contract (ala Robbie)

@Geo said in Josh Addo Carr Contract Discussion:

There are transfer fees in the NRL now…?

Apparently so. Pascoe can drive down and deliver the transfer fee in cash. They can keep his car too as a little sweetener. He can get the bus back.

Pretty sure if they did it would be included in the paying Clubs Salary Cap allotment…

Using the above ex…NRL would take Addo-Carr’s value in our cap as 700K…

for the 1st year where we pay the transfer fee, and then 500k per season after that. Get in now while we have $$$

Doueihi @ 500k > Mbye @ 900k.

Unfortunately I am not sure that we can find someone to take Mbye’s freight

@tigerballs said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

News is AJ wants to see out his contract with Souths and is determined to stay put. Let’s see how that works out for him. On the other hand Marwene Hiroti is very keen. He’s on a train and trial with the Sharks but his preference is the Tigers, most likely more opportunities.

They should offer him a post football ambassadorial role if he goes.

Don’t expect that will have any cap impact

To me the Eels have got a hide not releasing him. Regardless of timeframes, they have taken our best player from 2019 who still had 2 years left on his contract. Now they want to stop this kid coming early to us, at the same time lessening what he can earn this year. Come on Eels - a bit of dignity please!

Yeah, the Eels management are definitely scum bags. They think if the bump him into their top 30, he will reneg his deal. I hope the Eels, Panthers and South’s all come equal last.

Head of football operations Mark ONeill…wouldn’t have a axe to grind surely…

He would have to put some pants on to sign the release. Not happening any time soon

What the pants or the release ??

Both
