    Of course it's fine to negotiate with a contracted player when its a tigers player or coach

    As a Sharks fan I encourage WT to buy right in and snatch Moylan off us at full freight. A $900k Moylan who plays 8-12 games has to be better than $800k for Josh Reynolds playing reggies.

    As a fellow human though - and not even a real decent one - just don't. I know it'd be a classic WT play, but you's really shouldn't. If he goes though I feel Titans and WT will fight it out for his signature.

    Moylan strikes me as someone who's more worried about how many bags he wants to sniff on the weekend than play footy. Huge no from me

    5/8 only Vic. The bloke has never been a fullback and played very well there last year. The Sharkies went full retard signing SJ

    I swear SJ made a career out of killing the tigers. He is bog average in every other game except for when he plays us

    Sunday was a prime example.

    I think the fact that I’m even throwing it out there shows just how desperate we are for some class. Maybe we could do a swap for one of our over paid hacks? Take your pick, there’s plenty of them.

    f**k yeah. Lost a top FB and had money to burn so grabbed the best available 5/8. Questionable but I trust Flanagan had a plan. Unfortunately that and our cap copped it and Morris is left to put the puzzle together.

    Packer, Matulino (although he’d been pretty good before injury), McQueen and Elijah Taylor are all on way overs

    More talk about Matterson leaving the Tigers. Sydney Morning Herald saying Eels as ones after him.

    What a boneheaded article. Disregarding whether or not its true Matto wants out the statement "Matterson hasn’t yet asked for a release but the club may be prepared to let him go given they have had no joy shifting Josh Reynolds, Chris McQueen, Russell Packer and Ben Matulino. Esan Marsters has also been given permission to speak to rivals, although it remains to be seen whether he will seek a release"

    is ridiculous. How would it benefit the Tigers if because they couldnt get rid of some rubbish to average players who are getting paid massive overs, by getting rid of one of their few good players who is on massive unders?

    Sports reporting is dead.

    Bad move for BJ.
    Dogs have less collective brain that the Raiders.

    Bad move for the dogs, BJ has 1/4 of a brain. has he ever played a game without a few absolutely shocking errors/decisions?

    Confusing one ain’t it? Team short on talent but developing a solid culture, have showed great discipline and work ethic in defence over the back end of the season. BJ just doesn’t fit into this rebuild.

    To be fair, BJ is largely responsible for our low collective brain power.

    BJ's on a fair bit here and Simonssen is looking like a good prospect so it makes sense to shed him. Especially since we've essentially made the Top 4 without him.

    If it's true, I think I'm ok with it. We had to get five blokes into four spots, BJ is on massive coin and a backline of Simmonson - Cotric - Croker - Rapana still packs a lot of punch. We've also still got Oldfield on low coin as a decent backup.
