Funnily enough, I joined this site when I was 22 (2003). You could probably trawl through some of the crap I said back then and sum me up as a dumbass. It probably wouldn't be that interesting though.
Anyway, did anyone else really enjoy the flippant way Latrell said "People say playing Origin is the pinnacle...it's not". So damn true, despite what Freddy, Gus and the QLD brigade say.
I'm starting to really like this guy, even though he ruined my trip to Sydney for the GF with that arsey flick pass.
I hope he makes himself unavailable for NSW but available for the Kangaroos. That would great.
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.
While the Roosters have re-signed props Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Siosiua Taukeiaho, the club would still need to find $500,000 for Mitchell in 2020 should he stay.
This makes no sense. Have they already allocated his 2020 salary to player upgrades? What happens if Latrell digs his feet in, will they need to shed players to stay under the "cap"?
haha nah I was throwing a bit of banter Apollos way because he had a go when I said they couldn't re-sign Latrell a few days ago.i think that Wazdogs point is that if he has a contract for 2020 they cant upgrade their way up over the cap. Personally I think the journalist just cant work it out that upgrades are for future years.
You are an idiot mate. He could've got 800k minimum from the roosters, the tigers probably offered more before he came out with those comments. So he needs to make 100k more then his biggest offer prior to his comments about fittler and the blues. Its f**king simple.
