Some of the merkins signed won’t be on so much that they can’t play reserve grade:
We have five top 30 spots open next year and all those listed above would be on $250k or less, imo of course.
For his sake, I’d hope then he hasn’t signed a contract with us for pending medical (well I DO hope he has there) and signed a release from Tigers. Because while he’d be medically covered, he wouldn’t have the assurance of an enduring contract.Why would he? If he doesnt get hurt, his next months pay will come from Parra. If he busts his ACL, his next months pay and ongoing treatment and rehab comes from Tigers.
Why is it any different to busting has ACL next week in a Parra jersey?
I think Murchie is signed for 2024, but Doorey has a MO ?
Ham on the Parra pod made a good point yesterday. He said that we should not be signing merkins like Murchie and Jirah for Cup OR playing dicks from Ron Massey. We should be promoting kids up. I think the fact that we’re not exposes our lack of planning during covid and how kids got lost when there was no footy. I know they are coming through now, but the quality of our cup players now (ie depth) is very poor.
Yeah bullshit. Link me to where you have ever discussed Ron Massey players being used in NSW Cup etc , you cranky old whinger.Thanks scope. Only what we the unforgiving have been telling you apologists forever.
But hey some Ham said it so now it must be true.
And before you tell me the bleeding obvious again claiming that I don't get that Has actually breaths oxygen, see what I did there? Pretty nifty huh?
well I haven't read anything that states what we paid, so I am wondering how you come to the conclusion that we paid full freight
Contracts can start at different dates.
But f**k they’ll be some red faces if he does an ACL or punches the ref or something. And @Tiger5150 may be confident he’ll put in but it’d be 100% natural for Ofahengaue to have it in the back of his mind every time he hits it up or makes a tackle.
Would not surprise me if he’s cut from team list on game day. In some ways by Tigers it’d be an admirable waste of a week’s salary to give us the middle finger.
I’d say he has “verbally” signed. Certainly that’s not ironclad but it’s close. If he hasn’t signed, we’ll be putting in additional clauses to the contract or at least waiting to see outcome of him playing this week before signing.Yeah but doesn't sound like it was a date clause. Sounds like he is yet to actually sign.
I expected one of you Tigers supporters to say as much and I almost agree. But they are very close. I think where you top us is you're DH and bench. But a our Top 5(excluding DH) are better then yours at this point. Next season as I expect our forwards will be a little older, and a little more worn out and a little more numbed to the drooling's of our Potato Head, so you may have exceeded ours overall.
But you are right, bar a miracle happening and you sign Hunt, I expect him to be at the Dogs next year, you will still be sh*t and we through Moses and maybe a couple of decent inclusions will improve enough to just make the eight maybe. Unless of course we sack Potato Head and hire Michael Cheika and make an additional awesome Prop and outs back singing. Then we could be top 4 and genuinely vying for the title.
And that my friends is why you pay premium for Moses even though he is a down hill skier.
I'm a little surprised that not one of my Eels supporters didn't pick up that the Tigers pack is equal or probably better then ours currently. They just have anchors dragging them down in the halves. Same with the Dogs. If either of those teams get a Hunt or even Moses type of player we would be spooners and they would be top eight.
The Tigers pack is very good, but:
Paulo - incumbent NSW prop
RCG - would be playing for NSW if the coach wasn't a gimp
Lane - probably a whisker shy of being an Origin benching
Matterson - see RCG
At full strength, our pack is pretty damn strong in the starting 13.
It drops off a cliff on the bench, though.
I’d be ringing today for a yes or no and telling his manager to do the same. He’s a nice to have, not a must sign.
How long do you wait before calling off the deal
I don't know if the Eels and Tigers had any bridge left, but he's definitely burning bridges now.I’d be ringing today for a yes or no and telling his manager to do the same. He’s a nice to have, not a must sign.
If this were a property in similar situation (it’ll be profitable but not wealth defining), I’d be ringing seller & agent to confirm deal. If they ummed and ahhed, I’d say no thanks then. Then when they call on Monday, I’d cut price or put new requirements in.
yeah, no problem, I'll just ring his agent and ask him
I haven't made any allegations here so you got that arse about
