    The saltiness of some Tigers fans is hilarious. Hope this thread lasts forever.

    We won't be leaving it that long Vic.... 8 year extension to be announced straight after he makes his 2nd consecutive Clive Churchill medal acceptance speech in next year's GF....

    That main reason the Tigers improved was because Moses dead set tanked his last month of footy there so he'd be granted a release. There is absolutely no excuse for that level of petulance and bitchiness. I don't see what he did as any better than Tandy or Simona.

    Bit different. We wanted to keep Lyon. He said he was homesick so he left...to England.

    He handled it badly but given he was only about 19, it wasn't a big deal to me personally.

    Tigers didn't really care if he stayed or not so I don't know why they're so cranky that he left.

    Mitch has surprised me. Doing a great job.

    Proves how important a supportive environment and a progressive culture is to players' performances.

    Fair enough. The only game I saw in his last month was against Parra and I thought he played alright. Statistically, he looked ok against Sharks and Dogs.

    Anyway, I like the Tigers so hopefully it works out for both clubs going forward.

    I thought he was pretty dire against us on that Easter Monday game and was thinking, "what the hell are we getting ourselves in to".... I don't know if he was as bad as that in the other games Vic mentions in his last month at the Tigers. If he was that poor and his attitude was to sulk, maybe Clary should have played him in reggies....

    I was very worried about signing him. If his attitude was poor he definitely should've been dropped by Cleary.

    I did plenty of things at his age that I look back at now and think...I was an arse. He make have the same thoughts when he matures a bit more.

    He's that good he sooked he'll leave the game if tigers didn't release him. Kind of attitude you want from a close to 7 figure player

    Poor little baby didn't get things his way so he threw a tantrum :(

    Uh

    I can name two performances from Moses that come close to match fixing, coincidentally around the time he wanted a release

    It's worked out better for both parties anyway. You've got your pelutant little child playing good footy for Eels whilst we've removed the cancer from our club

    Did Gallen leave Cronulla when they were in a mess? Nope
    Did Thurston leave Cowboys when things weren't looking up? Nope

    Don't say we didn't tell you so when things get hectic at Parra and he soon becomes your downfall.

    Haha way to miss the point. You said he wasn't a priority yet he had over 6 months to take up a new contract worth over 900k

    Luckily Ivan Cleary is a smart operator hooly dooly

    Match fixing. Please. His form was down and his attitude may have been shit, but there's nothing more to it than that.

    His attitude seems top notch so far, and he's playing well. I don't agree with the way he handled himself when at the Tigers, but to call him a cancer is a little extreme.

    I don't know what you mean by things getting hectic, but I think he'll be ok. Anyway, as I said, I like the Tigers and hope they have a better year next year. Seems your fans are happy to be rid of Mitch and we are happy to have him, so seems like a good decision all up.

    His game management in the game against Parra on Easter Monday when we pretty much had it won was diabolical. Backed up against south Sydney when he made 11 missed tackles and 0 runs was very suss.

    Anyway what's done is done.

    What I meant is when things are going great you'll love him but when things are shit he'll want the next bus out of parra (ala what he did to the tigs)

    Thanks mate, I actually don't mind Parra either despite the whole Moses drama. I'm on the Parra/Penrith bandwagon in the finals
