    Why the hell would they announce a re-siginging if they haven't actually signed. In saying that it would be poor form if fui did sign somewhere else after giving his word. But then again i feel it would have been the manager telling fui to hold off signing, he obviously wants more comission.

    Isaac Moses (like a lot of player managers) sounds like a real merkin.... Didn't we have trouble about Fuifui supposedly signing with the Storm as well as us last contract time?

    Moses is just doing his job. he cant help it if the club is stupid and announces the signature without the player actually signing.

    I suspect that announcing it is a smart idea because it corners him to not back out. He agreed, club announces he agrees and now because of public pressure cant back out.

    mmmmmm!!! ok...here goes.

    *to the tune of the twillight zone*

    around about the time Burty was announced, officially, I was chatting to a mate of mine with some contacts at the club, and I kinda asked him why would they hold off in announcing the signing this long, when he agreed weeks ago? and his reaction was..well!! that's because Burt actually signed the contract yesterday...I then asked, ok what about Fui??..he then just smiled and said..he's NOT! signed, I then asked the question, why did the CEO reveal to the press that these guys have signed (or agreed to terms) and he then said, as Tezz predicted, to paint them in a corner, I was then told that the method used by Ossie didn't go down too well on the players..and who can blame them?

    if Fui doesn't re-sign, what an embarrasment that would be to the club and Ossie...

    as much as i don't like Moses, it wasn't him, I'm pretty sure from memory his manager back then was one of the Orr brothers, not sure which one.

    ofcourse he's linked to the dogs, Greenberg is absolutely nailing us right now and putting us in a position to try and pay overs so they can pick up both Mateo and KK, which I think they will.

    they will definitely pick up 1, no doubt in my mind...the other is touch and go...that also doesn't mean that other clubs don't come into the picture.

    ;-) I know more then I let on most of the time. Because RL is such a scattered arena (as in, there are too many people with control and power and that alot of different bits of info leaked out go through a Chinese Whispers effect) I dont join in on the act saying this or that will happen. I will occasionally say I have heard ''this'' and ''that'' through the grapevine, but only if im comfident in what is being said.

    This KK agreeing to the Dogs rumour is gaining speed though. Makes sense too, Parra have 3 1st grade halves and a shortage of back rowers. Therefore Parra need back rowers. KK = Half, Mateo = back rower. Its the logic being thrown around.

    I do know the club is in negotiations with both KK and Mateo, but if they were to suddenly lose one, they would up the ante on the other immediately.

    Havent heard a peep about Grothe and or Inu, and tbh, this is the first iv heard of the Fui Fui thing too, but perhaps no one was supposed to hear about Fui not actually signing.

    why dont the Bulldogs just move into Parra stadium and call themselves the Canterbury Eels, they idolize us and our players so much

    if Fui does go, we should get John Mannah back in the blue and gold

    I'm a firm believer that the salary cap for most teams (yes Storm seem to be an exception) allows you to build up to a point where you reach your potential. You have an optimal period of one or maybe two years where you can win the comp. Your players have the experience and are playing for under what they are worth. Thereafter the salary cap pulls your team apart due to good performances and contract renewals taking a lot of your players out of your squad. Our years are 2009 & 2010. We are now at the top of the sine wave curve people and will start to drop in 2011. It's now or nothing IMO.

    Ok fair enough.... all player managers are grubs in my opinion - there are far better ways imo that many of them could go about doing their "jobs".

    Not a good way to do buisness Ossie, and player managers are just leeches making money of other peoples talent.
