The only thing that is clear to me is that LM and his entourage encourage this media attention. They are the only ones who could put a stop to it, yet they let it play on, hoping it will play to their advantage.

To be fair, WT have done that ourselves at times, tried to play the media, even with LM himself.

Totally agree with you. Then they complain about the negative media impact when they are leaking all the info

The issue is LM and his entourage. The problem is they appear to be incompetent. I don’t think it’s a deliberate tactic. I don’t think LM wants the attention.

This seems to me to have more media attention than Arrows contract which has been going on for ages. Is that just because Latrell is a much better player or is it just that there is a circus around Mitchell.

I think its both to be honest Earl. The highest profile player on the market and at one point seemed to have 5 to 6 people negotiating contracts for him. I think if Latrell had his way everything would have been done behind closed doors but his entourage have made him out to be a fool I think hence why a new manager

The perceived issues with recruiting elite football players to the Tigers does seem more prevalent now than ever before with the amount of cash in the bank and snubs from LM etc. I imagine this was probably the reason why the Tigers went so hard for Bennett before his move to Souths - players want to play for him. Still believe Madge is a very astute coach and doesn’t make decisions on a whim which is important along with being very culture oriented.

More prevalent now? Based on the fact we haven’t signed Latrell?

LM ‘etc’. Do you know what etc means? It means more than one. Look it up if required.

I personally believe it is more prevalent now given the money we have to spend and difficulty in securing the big names we have been chasing without success.

Good one mate! Maturity of an infant!

Who are the big names we missed out on that we chased besides Latrell? Kurt Capewell and Zane Tetavano? Haha

One word matey, blocked. Don’t have time for you.

My pleasure mate. Have a good day RP

How will Cameron Smith both referee and challenge his own rulings?

“Trodden said NSWRL has asked Fittler to not comment on the story because there are several inaccuracies, according to the Blues, and they don’t want to further inflame the situation”. Next minute Bradley comes out.
Freddie is a roosters man at the end of the day - they’re trying to angle Latrell to stay. They’re trying to shame him into a paycut and make him crawl back on his own accord.

I thought exactly the opposite …they want him gone now …money well and truly spent

I agree hap. I think they have well and truly wiped their hands clean off him. Still paying though. Who knows with all the media rubbish thrown out there
