Very open in some of his remarks. Should target more dragqueens

Parramatta build their club around tankers, Stefano clearly doesn’t fit in.

They are aspirational heavy hitters who take back their own rejects every year and wonder why they fail.

Rubbish club, rubbish culture.

The Foxx wants out of the Storm. A messy management dispute could derail his exit plan

In a move that could jeopardise his Melbourne exit, Josh Addo-Carr has reportedly hired a lawyer to help his split from his management team.

According to The Sunday Telegraph, Addo-Carr, who is set to leave the Storm at the end of 2020, is reportedly unhappy with his contract after learning a fellow State of Origin winger is on $550,000.

Addo-Carr, whose current deal is said to be worth $330,000 in 2020 and $350,000 in 2021, is yet to field any offers from rival clubs after the Storm announced they would conditionally release him at the end of the season on compassionate grounds.

The Sunday Telegraph reports two individuals not connected with Addo-Carr’s management company Pacific Sports Management have contacted rivals on the NSW star’s behalf which is confusing the situation further.

Addo-Carr’s manager Chris Orr said he couldn’t see why Addo-Carr wanted out, saying “we have done a terrific job for him since taking him from the Tigers to the Storm and having his contract upgraded”.

Orr said he’d take legal action against anyone claiming to represent Addo-Carr.

Late last year the Storm confirmed they’d allow Addo-Carr to return to Sydney to be closer to family, but the club’s position hinged on them being able to secure a player of equal value in return.

If Addo-Carr is unable to find a club due to his messy management situation, he could be forced to remain at the Storm for the final year of his contract.

We have all had some practice reading between the lines lately.

My guess is this one is instigated by Orr, a veiled threat to JAC rehashing a quote from last week. Not expecting a move before the start of the season as this suggests Orr and JAC will need to sort themselves out.

This club has literally survived setting itself on fire multiple times, now a handful of people want an amputation after stubbing their toe.

Seriously, this is only painful because a vocal few can’t get over it. What did you do to survive the merger, Craig Field and McGuinnes, Hoppa and Lamb, Prince leaving, Lui, tiger sharks, etc… I’m only up to 2012.

If you’re that sick of it find a new hobby, come back in March. You should really aim higher than being miserable all the time.

The signings you make and shouldn’t have (Blair, Ballin, Cleary’s crew for the money we paid) are what wrecks your cap. The signings you wish you made and didn’t, imo, at the very least don’t stuff up your future recruitment.

Finally, people who are all doom and gloom should look up self fulfilling prophecies. In any business it is very easy to create an aura based purely on unreasonable expectations, be they positive or negative. The more posts in the media, including social media, the more you add to the perceptions out there that "the tigers suck ". In my opinion we have over achieved to finish 9th and I wish I enjoyed that more about last season instead of being so bothered by the seasons prior. Even the fans don’t believe, how are we meant to convince anyone else? What’s more, when the club leadership is positive they get mocked by the know-it-alls on here with less than no idea. All departments are improving, football will too.

If I’ve offended anybody I’ll just say this. I can’t wait until we succeed, I hope and believe it will be this year, otherwise why bother being here months before kick off.

Mate passion drives this forum. We are all ridiculously passionate about our team. This leads to emotional investment and emotional comments. I love your passion and how you express it. But you’ve articulated the problem. We go from mistake to mistake to mistake. It needs to change. We lose every clutch moment. You can list all the achievements - front office ok, great coach, COE - all good. But we still lose. Always. It needs to change. And as a passionate member and supporter I demand more. All emotional with best of intentions. But I’m sick of losing. Aren’t you?

Steve I’m sick of missing the finals, however we aren’t really losing 80% of the time or anything. We are often competitive and I look at our squad and think we go ok. I have been vocal about what I think we can fix, we need speed desperately. Despite being able to recognise and discuss shortcomings, I really don’t think missing out on LM is a big deal. He left the Roosters, he is hardly looking at the club’s prospects as part of his decision. This has been conveniently overlooked by many.

I’m also delighted we aren’t chasing a makeshift fullback. We have 2 already, specialists only or wait for the right opportunity. Everything is in the framing mate, as I’m sure you know as you are much more experienced with organisational change than I am.

The negativity is often justified, buit in this case it is creating a myth about the club that will make the future even worse.

I’m not talking about missing Mitchell. I actually think we may have dodged a bullet. I’m saying that no matter the challenge- we lose it. On field and off field. It’s becoming part of our DNA and it’s a real concern. I don’t think my criticism is unjustified- my point is there for all to see ( lost opportunity). Golden point losses to contract negotiations lost. Failure. I honestly think we need to fluke a big win and then ride it like crazy to change the mindsets if everyone associated with our great club.

Fair enough, I was speaking about the LM thing mostly. During the season I see the onfield failure as a big deal, but increasingly try to align my expectations with where we are at.

I find it hard to believe folks are still buying into it…

Mr Pascoe believes it’s a false story that Souths are leaking to make the cap situation plausible

I have Direct correspondence to confirm this. Before you again say I’m lying

So he’s still going to souths?

Mr Pascoe is of the belief he will take Souths offer over tigers. If the tigers weren’t sitting on their hands in regards to JAC that situation could perhaps sway LM. It’s all very weird.

Please elaborate?
So we’re not going hard for JAC and still waiting on LM to come to us?
WTF are we doing?

Anything this guy says is just to make it look like his predictions under a different name were ruined by unforeseeable circumstances and he really was right in some roundabout way.

I doubt the club are doing nothing in regards to recruitment, but hopefully they don’t share real information with people who are willing to screenshot and share an SMS from the CEO.

See tigers fans, cheer up. Souffs can’t even “win” when they are successful with the gladiator and Scott minto’s dad.

The roosters have no fans and would have survived Chernobyl.

We still need a gun goal kicker imo, is there any qauliy goal kickers available for 21

I can live with Momo. The guy seems to be very good at learning from mistakes and I’d back him to nail his next match winner. He never looked like getting that kick in the dogs game. He had probably given up on us being in that position (as had I as I switched off) and would have gained valuable experience.

He started poorly but from memory ended above 70%?
