    It sounds an awful lot like you want him back. Just saying.

    Oh god no.Never felt better about a player leaving since Robert Lui. You know, the wife beater. You know how it is, you never want one of them in your team.

    Mitchell made it very clear he wanted to leave to go Parramatta for their winning culture and for the benefit of his mental health. Enjoy his contribution to your culture, I can only assume Kenny Edwards is very appreciative of his contribution already.

    Genuinely dont want to stink the place up, you guys have better things to worry about. Parra isnt that bad a team and we are genuinely nothing special. You guys play us again in a few weeks and you will probably get bragging rights then. I then expect Pou, Wittyfan and other Moses lovers to give it me then.

    Tigers have been crap for at least 6 years now and of course have many years history of being crap, pre and post merger. Tigers & Parra are equal worst performing teams in the NRL. But when Ivan Cleary came to the club, its not a coincidence that the first thing he did was take Moses offer off the table. The ONE thing the Tigers have for them right now and the only thing that is getting them results, is they are a genuine team, each member fighting individually and collectively. Out of that we have gone from traditionally the worst defensive team in the comp to the best. As Rowdy said in the presser its a big thing knowing that the guy inside you and outside has your back.

    Good luck guys....see you in a few weeks.

    Of cpurse, its just a game but we are on a forum talking about footy.
    I doubt too many log off here with their moods changed from a post.

    I want tigers to make the top 8. Sick of the same old storm, roosters,broncos etc.
    I just see teams working them out and Cleary looking well......TIRED and no other ideas.
    Id give him 3 full seasons though. He deserves to build his own squad.

    I'm not taking my jersey off til our next win. I've noticed people have increasingly respected my personal space over the last few weeks.

    I don’t think it was Arthur who kicked that.

    Eisenhuth is useless. He was the decoy. Brooks was the one calling the ball.

    Edwards is talented but needs to pull his head in. I suspect Moses is the only one with the balls to let him know.

    I wonder if Moses is actually part of the problem then. He seems passionate, even headstrong. Some players like Kenny and Norman and maybe Hayne are happy to give 85%, but Moses wants 110% (obviously the optimum number). This could cause friction.

    To be clear I'm not blaming Moses, or any of them, but sometimes chemistry is important.

    We didn’t say anything when we beat you last year. The Tigers were just a bump on the road to our first finals appearance in eight years. If we beat you next time it’ll be no different. Just another two points on our way up the table.

    Sam Burgess got 2 weeks for leading with his elbow whilst in possession of the ball.

    The same way that Kaysa got injured right ?

    I thought Packer was leading with his elbow, too - but the replay showed (to me, at least) that it was an accident; I think it woukd be very harsh to say that Packer lead with the elbow, and I hate the guy.

    If Moses is part of that problem, then I'd say it's a problem we had to have.
