I would rather have to choose between two kids with huge potential than none.

But you can only sign and keep so many. Still only 30 man squads.

I’m not a fan of the draft, a trade window sounds interesting.

I don’t think clubs should own the players unless a player has come through the grades for a single club also up to 50% of that players salary should be cap except. Once the player leaves their jnr club, the player becomes a free agent. If the player wants to break his contract a fee of $100k will be paid by the buying club to the selling club. If the club wants to release a player the club must carry an additional $100k on their cap for the following season. A mutual agreement incurs no fee but all parties must be agreeable.

Same fee should apply for free agent players and clubs wanting to break a contract early.

Just a 3 beer suggestions.

I’m not a big fan of a trade window as it is based too much in fantasy. We decry the lack of loyalty and call players mercenaries but there is nothing as inhuman as giving managers the power to swap their employees and them having no choice in the matter.

I think the whole value of winning has gone too far.

The NRL needs strong leadership. That would sort out lots of the agent problems.

Respect your views.

Only thing I query is that unless people are cheating and breaking the rules the primary value of sport is winning.

I refer to trade windows as a short mid season window were with all party agreement or the above penalties apply, players can be traded between clubs.

Maybe even make origin a two week stand alone event and a trade window at the same time. Make it so both origin sides select 30 man squads, all 30 players must see game time during the 3 game series. Also those players must miss a game for their clubs before and after origin.

Addresses the risk of player burnout with 30 man squads and the break before and after. Creates strategy, who to play for what games and may stop clubs stacking their ranks with high value players. Because they won’t have them before and after origin.

would be a massive media frenzy also extends the season for more tv coverage adding value.

Down side is the two events would clash.

@tigerbalm said in Wests Tigers sign Zane Musgrove till 2021:

Imagine supporting a club where you have to discuss the severity of the players sexual assault cases. Not including king hitting forwards or Uber smashing utilities. This club just keep going backwards. You can tell that they’re embarrassed by this signing by the timing of the announcement.

Most NRL clubs have similar stories.

Speculation makes us look like fools.

Nah that’s assumptions. Speculation makes you a WT forum member.

Welcome to the club.

Our club has given him a second chance. Don’t think we or the NRL will give him a 3rd.

Packer has done his time and turned his life around and so far made the most of his second chance.

I think a player like him will make a difference to our team.

@ElleryHanley said in Wests Tigers Live Q&A:

Pascoe always looks ‘very’ relaxed at these things. Like a bloke who has just landed on a tropical island relaxed…

Not criticising that, just an observation. The other CEOs all present much more like corporate CEOs, our bloke presents like a character from The Big Lebowski…

That could be good or bad, depending on what sponsors / players are looking for.

Unless he is straight out selling us all a load of rhetoric, it would seem no signings are imminent aside from Musgrove.

Yep, I am also getting tired of hearing “we want players who want to be here“ comments. From a fans perspective I want a board, ceo and coach who can make our club a place that players want to come to.

Johnson is a better fullback than we have. Period

Johnson is not a fullback. He has held souths back playing there

Corey Thompson is a winger. Whats your point?

That we do not have a decent fullback and should not be looking to recruit a winger to play there

Even if it is an upgrade yeah?

If he will take a 1 year deal.

Would you consider a car with a blown head gasket that can be driven an upgrade on one with a flat battery that wont start?

Mate I don’t drive Commodores

Johnston is a Lada

Corey is the mighty AU falcon

You lost all credibility when you put mighty in front of AU. Just like Ford did when they put the AU to market. 🙂

Ok the s1 forte was a mistake

Everything before and after the au was ok even for a Ford. But I don’t know what they were thinking, the au was the best thing that happened to the commodore!

Best thing that happened to the commodore was the rb30 👍

Those things are like JAC. Now we won’t get into trouble for side tracking the thread.
