    I seem to remember Gutho being the one who is holding out, not the club.

    More like it's mutual.

    Gutho knocked back an offer that he felt was too low. The club said ok, prove you're worth more. Gutho is now doing that.

    It's the biggest storm in a thimble, but it's Parramatta so it sells papers.

    I would have said Gleneel, but it's far too coherent

    I'm going to give them 'til round 15 to sort this shit out. If not I'll skip the next round in protest.

    Sure.

    I just saw my neighbours cat chasing a magpie. Two seconds later it came running back past the window with three magpies after it. Stupid cat

    Five year plans are only for a coach taking over a salary cap disaster anyway. Otherwise that stuff isn't required.

    EELS GETTING THE PROCESS RIGHT

    PARRAMATTA’S new recruitment policy, not an apparent lack of desire to lock in big-name players, is behind the Eels’ decision to delay securing stars Mitchell Moses and Clint Gutherson.

    The Eels see Moses and Gutherson as part of their long-term plans but have overhauled their recruitment methods following a disastrous salary cap predicament in recent years when they’ve overpaid for players and struggled to make a competition dent.

    The changes include setting up a five-person roster management committee and a more data-centric approach to recruitment and retention.

    The Eels offered Gutherson a contract in the pre-season worth about $500,000 which was rejected, with both parties agreeing to come back to the table early in the season.

    People have been critical of the Eels for not locking in their stars, but the season is only four rounds old and they finished last in 2018, so you could forgive their caution.

    The roster management committee was due to meet again on Thursday, with negotiations with Moses and Gutherson expected to pick up in coming weeks.

    It's a bit of a trip down memory lane. As well as current Eels Gutherson, Moses, Stone, Afualo, Nohra, Sutoikamanu, Fonua, Parry, Salmon, Kaufusi, Schneider, and Aukafolau, there's also plenty of former Eels:

    Kelly
    Johnson
    Auremi
    Hopoate
    King
    Gagan
    Wiliame
    Blair
    Loko
    Toutai
    Masinamua
    Tanginoa
    Pauli
    Dockar-Clay
    Fuimaono
    Twal
