    TBF on Woods, did he actually come out and say that? Not disputing he didn't, just don't get the news down here!

    Pure speculation but his form & attitude and the way he speaks about the club it definitely wouldn't surprise me

    According to 'sources' it was less than the tigers offered and they weren't prepared to get in a bidding war and it was a take it or leave it offer but who knows...

    The roosters are on record as saying they don't deal with the manager so maybe that is where the take it or leave it offer came in.

    Perhaps Tunks was better

    The Tigers should try and get Teddy to backflip, he's certainly not opposed to the idea. Give him some of Woods cash.

    I was at the Eels v Tigers game last week, and when the Eels scored to bring it to 20-22 and trail by 2 with about 15 to go, who do you think was going off and laying down the law to the players in the huddle for the Tigers?

    It was Moses, believe it or not. Absolutely going off his trolley.

    I don't usually, but geez I feel sorry for the Tigers at the moment.

    Merkin players.

    Well Rothfield says in his article today that Tedesco had all but agreed at the dogs then the roosters came in and beat their offer so he went to them.

    I guess we'll never know the real truth.

    As in that specific manager because he is a flog.

    I'm by no means an expert, but apparently this is the first and only player we will ever sign who is managed by that Moses fella thus the 'one and done' offer because Politis has no interest in negotiating with him.

    Minichiello has a lot to do with this deal happening apparently.

    Losing all of them could be a blessing in disguise for the Tigers. I don't think any one of them is worth what they're asking, especially Woods, Tedesco maybe but his injury recors is hardly inspiring..

    If the Tigers lose them all or most and use the money to recruit smartly and with a bit of luck they could be anything again in 5 years. I don't think they're good enough to bring a premiership and definitely not a group to invest massive amounts of your salary cap in to and build a team around. Major bullet dodged with egos bigger than their range of skills.

    While they haven't WON comps they also haven't had time out of the 8 or any rebuilding periods because they seem to be able to replace quality with quality and just keep stacking their sides. Where sides like Wests and Newy have to have time in rebuilding phase because they completely get stripped back and have to bleed juniors through.

    Tedesco was worth whatever he was asking from a Tigers perspective. He could very easily be the best player in the game at some point in his career.

    I don't think moving to the Roosters will help him get there though. Too many mouths to feed in that back line and he won't get the regular ball that he loves.

    Yawwn.

    People complaining about well run clubs being more successful more often than basketcases.

    Woods, as captain, didn't even have the guts to respond to the clubs deadline. What a complete merkin of a bloke he is.
