This right here is reason enough to hate the Roosters.
I heard he’s now using 3 ply toilet paper as well
The more it goes on the more I see him re-signing with the Roosters on a 'reduced' contract as 'they gave him an opportunity and he feels he owes it to them' blah blah. It's a good way of them retaining him whilst making room to sign a Fafita.
That's true mate. But spending money, then whinging that you don't earn enough is a bit arse about face in my book. Still, many people seem to do it.
An Aussie journo not knowing what he's talking about? Surely not......
Dont blame any player for earning as much as they can. He isnt worth $1million a year but then many players of equal ability have got contracts of that size. The stupidity really lies with desperate clubs who throw good money after bad. Looks like doggies might have finally learnt a lesson, hopefully titans will as well
The Bulldogs are out. This is shaping up as a player manager fail.
I agree it’s all smoke and mirrors and part of Roosters plans
Yep - http://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/bulldog...ldogs-pull-out-of-race-to-sign-latrell_081119
Help me out here. Why would it be in our interest to plan this and drag this out? It'd be in our interest to sign him up quickly with minimal fuss, surely.
Unless what you're saying is we're planning for everyone to hate him and drive his value down.. that plan fails when LM ends up hating the club and no longer fits in
He should come to Newcastle for unders. An easy drive to Taree and much better environment for a country kid than Sydney.
I hear he has a nice car to make the drive once a week.
Weidler writes a piece about how the Dogs are chasing Latrell then two days later one about how they aren't interested.
Uncle Nick pays the bills.
Just a reminder: hooper was doing supercoach analysis videos for news corp a couple of years ago.
Just goes to show if you firmly attach your lips to peoples rings you can get anywhere in this world.
If he had the work ethic of a billy slater with his natural gifts he could command somewhere above 1mil a season playing fullback. If he's actually serious about doing it for his family that shouldn't be out of reach, but with his current attitude it probably is.
If he had the work ethic of a Billy Slater he'd already be an immortal.
If you were being very cynical, you could think that this is a ploy all about perception - Uncle Nick agrees with LM that they're going to publicly pull their offer, with an agreement that eventually after all the shit storm, his perceived value will be lower, allowing the Roosters to then register a much lower official contract (as he cant get better elsewhere), topped up with guaranteed, but unofficial brown paper bag cash.
Latrell gets his $1m, Rooster only register $500k - everyone's a winner.
That’s some insane logic, there.
This year I’ve done something like this myself, obviously nowhere near on this scope but I stepped down from a management role that was paying pretty good good money to work back amongst the peasants, I was sick of the pressure, bullshit deadlines and impossible expectations but the main thing was I didn’t have any kids when I started and now I have 3, to do my job well required a lot of time at work, time personally I’d rather be spending with my kids, they don’t care what money I’m on, they prefer spending more time with dad and going out on more adventures and I’m much happier, less frustrated and less distracted with shit that really doesn’t matter than I was before
And if tigers or Newcastle offer him $1M?
