Just my gut feeling but I reckon Mitchell doesn’t want to come to the Tigers otherwise the deal would have been done and dusted already. I believe he still has other clubs in his ear behind the scenes i.e South’s telling him to hold off until they can get stuff sorted. If we were the last club standing it would have been done by now. Just my gut feeling though hope I’m wrong.
I think the NRL has to come up with some harsh penalties to deter these sooks from doing such things. Hit them hard in their hip pocket. These guys are professional players and are paided well to do so and if they don’t like the coach or what ever other reason just spit the dummy and want out. If they were made to pay their club hefty compensation out of their own pockets they may think twice about doing it.
No big deal really MCK is only contracted to the end of the year and very much doubt he would have been re-signed anyway. Garner will most likely take his spot if he gets the punt. But our depth is getting pretty thin as i didnt really notice many standouts in the reggies.
I am deadset ropeable about this decision so peed off. We would be the least corrupt club in the comp you only need to look at our roster to see that. We always seem to get hammered for any little thing when blind freddy can see what goes on at numerous other clubs. Maybe we are too honest for our own good. 100% behind Pascoe and fingers crossed they can get the situation sorted and he can stay on as Ceo of our club cause imo he has done a wonderful job.
Big bucks for Brooks
The Wests Tigers have tabled halfback Luke Brooks a $2.7 million three-year offer as the club looks to out-bid rival suitors poaching the local junior. Via foxsports
Imo $900,000 a year is a bit high for Brooks. Whats he on now $550,00 you would think he would be happy with $750 - 800,000. But hopefully he puts pen to paper and we can concentrate on filling the last position.
