    Sign him and we take a title. He isn't involved cause they have Tedesco as their main strike weapon.

    The Swans are still waiting with Buddy Franklin. Similar deal and duck egg so far.

    Carries during the finals:

    57 Tedesco
    54 Morris
    45 Tupou
    29 Manu
    21 Mitchell

    How many of Morris or Tupou's runs could Mitchell have taken if he wasn't squatting out wide sucking in the big ones after the opposition kicks long, or otherwise turns the ball over.

    This Mitchell signing could be worse than the Foran and Justin Poore signings combined.

    He has so many off field issues.

    A contract like that would send chills down the spines of all Parra supporters knowing that he will never, ever be worth that sort of money over the full 10 years and create a noose over the neck of our salary cap till we could off load its full value off our books. I call bull crap. Our football trust can't be that insane or desperate.

    Now if our club were to offer a similar deal at D. Fifita, that might turn out ok like Taumalolo's seems to be at present. He would still be what, 29-30 at the end of it?

    No Doubt Mitchell’s manger is leaking BS to the press and no one gets more clicks than us. The way the club has built its roster the last few seasons this rumour makes no sense at all.

    Agree, it's linking Mitchell and making up some outlandish numbers for attention.

    What about a not-so-lengthy deal?

    Triple M are also saying that David Fafita is *desperate* to sign with Uncle Wayne.

    They must be feeling the pinch in the post NRL season ratings .

    or just maybe Triple M is a place who will give air to anything that agents want to get out there

    Above shows that the good teams generally don't have blowout scores against them. You're right, a better attitude and better leadership will limit those scores.
    Did above include 32-0 finals result?

    Funny but BA has agreed with me. He has bought bigger skilful players into the team and guess what, we jagged 5th spot. If he had of persisted with smaller forwards with limited skills we'd be in bottom 8 again, which going from your comment is what you wanted.

    Too lazy to run that far. Seems unmotivated now for games at a time, like someone said, high maintenance.

    He’s a game winner for sure. We just can’t afford to carry that salary for him IMO. We will need another centre soon though.
