@Kul said in Website Updates and Changes:

Hey everyone.

The site was offline overnight and this morning as did some work on the server. It took a few hours longer than I anticipated, sorry about that.

The work was entirely server related, nothing has changed on the forum.

Thanks for keeping things running nominally.

I hope the rain is falling in the areas that need it.

Storm are struggling with salary cap, I’d love Munster here if they want to clear some space

JAC would be good

  1. Douhei to be a star, Mitchell to be a fatty who loses interest in footy.

I’d enjoy seeing that!!!

That made me laugh. You should consider changing your username to Arya.

Tigers actively looking for a top line centre as a point of need now (that’s from with-in the organisation) Content with forward pack.

Don’t believe you. Most of your other supposed inside info hasn’t eventuated.

Momo was a revelation at centre last year, and if you can believe Benji, Talau is the most exciting player at the club. Mbye is also strong at centre, so why do we need a centre as a priority?

Again have it all in written form. Can post pics if mods allow it

Please post them so I can let the club know they have a new leak. The pics will help them identify who you are and plug the hole.

Very sad news indeed. No doubt he has made the best decision for his future.

I would not take Gagai on to play in the centres.

I would rather have Johnson.

This off season is like a bottomless bad dream you just can’t wake up from

Yeah, but it’s been far more interesting than most so far.

So Roosters waive 200k in fees if LM signs with us
That’s 500k-600k he’d lose in 2020 by signing with Souths
Still reckon we can get him, hopefully Madge and Pascoe are taking advantage of the situation

The next 7 days should be pretty interesting
We just really need that 1 marquee signing to get the ball rolling. If we can sign LM you’d think that would all but guarantee JAC as well who will be granted a release at the end of 2020 at the latest
Plus COE next year with a tonne of cap money to spend

With all that advantage to us it would be pretty poor result if he didn’t sign, but he seems to be doing everything but sign with us.

We have said we are not calling him again…

Modern players won’t do the begging…we should be on the phone and proactive.

Imagine if the Clippers sat there and said ‘Kawhi can call us if he wants to chat’?

All these agents follow the American model. I don’t necessarily subscribe to it, but it is reality.

Pick up the phone, be aggressive…sell the Tigers message…sell us as a place a player would want to come…

Don’t just say ‘well, they can call us if they want’.

LM knows we’re interested and he knows what we’re willing to pay.
Tigers need to be careful of how a too desperate approach could harm them in future player negotiations. If players and their agents look at tigers management and think ‘if we keep on rejecting their offers they’ll just come back with a better one’, then good luck getting fair value in the future. We’ll forever be used as a bargaining tool for players wanting to play hard ball and pump their value to sign elsewhere…
Gotta draw a line in the sand somewhere and I think the club has done everything they need to in regards to the situation

While tigers have 2-3 spots and 1.7 mil in cap space the offer will be there. It’s when they fill those spots that the offer goes away

Really? So the money is on the table and committed to LM as a genuine offer?. If that’s so its news to me.
