    Nice one, welcome Robbie!

    After the disaster of the Kearney tenure, with Ricky we must now be looking like a stable option compared to some other clubs?

    If Farah does come, I hope he can leave his twitter days behind him at the Tigers!

    Until he, or anyone, signs a contract, I don't really give a shit.

    Lote on $450,000, Blair on $500,000 and Bunji on $5,000,000,000 it's no wonder they're losing players.

    Note, that the article does not say the Farah is considering an offer from the Eels for 2013 (while he is under contract to the Tigers). I don't see any news in the Farah part of the article.

    Just for the record, we haven't even spoken to him.

    Tigers have bigger issues, they only kept Lote cause they owe him money and Blair's contract has some. 3rd party which he hasn't seen any money yet

    you know there's blood in the water when you see statements like this ...

    mergers are bad .... how many years is it now and there is still an us-and-them menatality .... i hope parra never merge with anyone - its never likely to pan out well

    Exactly. Every single player in the Tigers team will be mentioned as leaving because of this 'crisis'.

    Typical Sunday sport pages filler story..........

    Atleast we are in a far better bargaining position with Stuart as coach than previous years. Let's just hope we are competitive next year to give us the best hope of attracting talent in 2014.

    The Farrah rumour has been around for a while and he has consistently denied it. Nothing will happen while he's contracted to the Tigers, even if he asked for a release I doubt the WestsTigers would release him. They'd find some way to smooth over the cracks. 2014 however could be a different story with Farrah off contract (I'm not sure if this it right, I read it somewhere on the forum but can't remember where). So may be one more year of pain then a big spending spree circa 1997 may be on the cards.

    Smells like a campaign to further destabilise Sheens rather than Farrah joining the Eels.

    You can also throw in Benji who has 3rd Party money owing.

    Farah will be 30 before the 2014 season. He is classy so he would have to have a couple more years left in him. Although probably past his best.

    Nowhere does it say Eels have given him an offer and nowhere does it say he's considering it. All assumptions based on rumour and innuendo.

    I love rumours and innuendo. What else have we got?
