4 years for 4.2 million and he plays fullback

Front load his contract as it seems we won’t be signing anyone else for 2020 with significant value

1.2 million - 2020
1 million - 2021
1 million - 2022
1 million - 2023

This would be great business

Especially if we can get the roosters to chip in

Why on earth would they do that?

Because they’re desperate to get rid of him before 2020.

They don’t want all of his salary wasted playing for North Sydney.

Zero chance that happens. If he doesn’t sign elsewhere they’ll kiss and make up and he’ll be lining up in the centres by round three. Obvious mutual interest in making it work.

The Chooks have come out and said they MAY be willing to cover some of his contract if he was to find another club. This was said way back when this saga first broke.

@cqtiger said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

On twitter a few minutes ago Rothfield was asked by a Tigers fan if we were close to signing anyone?

Buzz replied “probably Latrell next week”

Only repeating a twitter post. 🍋

Could explain why we missed Lomax and why two meetings with Moylan failed to eventuate. Could be Buzz talking crap to

Nostalgia
Balmain: really excited when Neil Pringle signed.

My first favourite player and overall still number one.

What about Bings try in the Amco cup…set move off a Brian Lockwood flick pass…a pearler

This latest piece of info will keep the forum buzzing for another week. From my point of view I hope like hell we sign him, I have no problems paying overs and I have no doubt he would have a dig and he would lift the clubs profile by miles

Whatever the reason … signing Mitchell and Moylan on high $s & long term contracts is not all that smart and for one I am not unhappy at this outcome.
Got the feeling that Madge doesn’t really give a rats. I think he would be more sorry he missed the boat on Lomax and AJ front … and Arrow before he priced himself out of negotiations.
I think that the Mitchell saga cost us plenty on the signing front. That’s what happens when you place all your eggs …

You believe that? They sat around for weeks on end on holiday doing nothing else but waiting for Latrell?
Lomax was never going anywhere either was Brimson. Who did we miss out on on the signing front? There aren’t that many elite players available. Come 2021-2022 you will see the results of the signings we have made this off season.

We are basically the only club with a war chest at present and still are coming up empty in the signing stakes. So next year when there are a few clubs with money to spend we will do better in the market place…can not see how it will happen.

Just got keep buying kids and pray for a diamond

We have money yes but do we just throw it away paying overs on not really great players? Biggest signings this off season have been Tetavano and Capewell. Majority of the other above average players have re signed with their respective clubs and I am happy we didn’t spend overs on those players just because we had the money.

Yes but there have been plenty we have been talking to who have decided to extend with their current club. Lomax and AJ Brinson come to mind. The bottom line is we have to pay overs to even have a look in and even that is not working.

We need at least one top liner and things could change very quickly. We need a no1 and next year we need a no6 and possibly a 9, all the money in the world will not help if players don’t want to come

We might not have given up on LM…but I think he may have given up on us.
He will end up back at the Chooks for sure and mid season sign a extension for unders…like most other chooks

Advertisers want ratings and the ratings will go down the drain if they introduce 4 quarter football. Of course anything is possible under our current boss

My concern with signing Moylan is two fold, firstly, yes he would probably add something but would the cost equate to benefits…I doubt it.
Secondly…why would you give the Sharks a leg up by helping them move on a player and create cap space. I see it as madness.

Maybe different if there is a swap with JR in the deal. That way both clubs are getting cap relief

Bottom line LM is not going to starve in 2020, he has a contract with the Chooks. So he has a fall back for 2020 and could revisit the market place next year. Okay people say his value will plummet if he is forced to play reserve grade, I think firstly, he will not be in reserves for long and if he did, there would be still plenty of demand that would force his value up. Every year there are 8 teams under pressure to make the finals the next year and are looking for a player like LM. Just for the record, I would still love to have him at Concord, but I think both the club and LM are now looking elsewhere
