    Our current situation is quite difficult & complex.
    Firstly, the Football Club Board is in disagreeance-they know, that with the pending elections they need a marquee signing & are split re L Mitchell & the fact that G Coorey has had negotiations via the Mundine conduit hasn’t gone down well.
    To complicate the matter, Mitchell has been taking advice from M Tartak who’s been in Mitchell’s ear
    since June(incidentally the Merc in the News Ltd articles belongs to Tartak).This is the time the falling out with the Roosters started.
    Even though Mitchell is still contracted to Wade Rushton.
    The only club right now with the $ to sign Mitchell are the Tigers under Maguire.
    Our retention/recruitment committee are using a steady as she goes approach.
    Dean Pay at best has 6 months to impress, but with the current roster & no big signing,won’t make the top 8 in 2020. Gone.
    The Club has gone shy on Mitchell & have been caught hook, line & sinker by the media vilification orchestrated by the Roosters’ sphere of influence.
    Mitchell should be a DONE DEAL. He is an enigmatic talent that scores points.
    If this doesn’t happen, don’t be surprised if 2 forwards are offered (RFM & Ogden) & we get a marquee signing in Frizzell.

    Frizell is a good player but not someone who is a marquee. It’s not like he lifted those Dragons sides to any great height.

    I don't think Pay is expected to make the top eight with the roster we have currently. Anything between 9th and 12th would be satisfactory.

    Frizell is great and all who I’d love at the club. But he’s another damn backrower. Get Fifita if we are going to do that

    That’s part of the reason he wants out, he’s one of the most effective edge forwards in the game yet Mary continuously uses him as a battering ram in the middle. If we don’t get him, he will be Burgess’ replacement at the Bunnies.

    We'd all be happy signing Frizell for 1m?

    Everyone wants top players but not prepared to spend the money.

    If true proves the Board and all involved are out of their depth.

    Looks like the board is doing a great job. Soon we will have 17 backrowers in the starting line....FFS!!
    They want to buy an AMG Merc for the price of a Toyota Corolla. The way it's going, by the time they decide on who they want and what they're prepared to pay, that player has signed elsewhere. Looks like Montoya and Holland will be signed up on $1million deals as they will have all this cash but no one to spend it on.
    Other clubs are signing players but we have no one signed for 2021 although we have a " War Chest".

    I wanted to think the board wasn’t out of their depth and things looked promising so want to give them the benefit of the doubt until further notice .. I’m holding out hope. Haven’t given up yet. They need to prove themselves!

    LOL Frizell....done fuck all in years.... push that pineapple in a bit further

    don’t forget signings now are for 2021 (2yrs off) so if we sign fuckall Now not only next year but the following year is going to be just as shit..

    this why extending our current average players now for 2021 pisses people off because it eats in to the cash we have for a few decent players, extending these players I reckon is also a sign that we are signing fuck all for 2021

    Simple really.

    Our roster has not improved and many other teams both above us and below us have dramatically.

    I would not swap RFM and Ogden for Frizell. How is that good business? Handy backrower yes but we are covered. He isn't attracting any fans to games I can guarantee that lol.

    Frizell would be such a panic buy from a board under pressure. How embarrassing.

    I'm not denying that frizell is a top player, but not worth a million out of our cap when that should be spent on a spine player imo

    If we don't sign players for 2021 now we're going to be making panic signings...
