I agree, need to secure Burton, Ciraldo coming will help that along with some extra cash too, $400k for Luke, yeah if he only plays half a season
The sad part is that under the style of play we carrently are playing I reckon Luke would excell. In SL he scored plenty of tries via support play thru the middle. We are playing a lot of short offloads at the moment and backing up for some great tries.

Thompson frees up $800k. He had his 2 years to even look remotely good in the NRl and the fact is he is a $400k player max in the nrl. Would prefer to cut our losses and use our salary cap to have a shot at a controlling half to compliment Burton.
He frees up 800k if another team agrees to pay him 800k

According to ZeroTackle, Luke Thompson is on 800k and Corey Allan is on 500k.

That's an easy 1.3 million right there. Sign Payne Haas!

So Thommo's gone down $50k. Always the way. When we sign them they are on a million when we lose them they free up $50k according to the media.

I think he will kill it under potter
I was one of the most excited to sign him. Sure he hasn't lived up to his ESL form but nobody was playing well under Baz the dud.

Plus he was carrying the whole pack on his shoulders.

I still want to see him playing under Potts and with a better performing team. If he hits his ESL form then everyone will be calling for his re-signing.

$20k a week don’t flatter yourself, do you think Luke is interested in how much money he is earning, let me tell you it’s the last thing on his mind !, hopefully he gets signed off this week to play, then he will prove his value
If total wreck Flanagan did improve so much, can you imagine what Thompson would be like in our new game style ?

Its Not Thommos fault the Andeson paid stupid money for him.
Think of the dollars some of the other players who could not get a contract elsewhere were being paid at the time.

Scarily there are far worse cases.

Canberra signing smelliot on stupid money
Knights signing Chloe's Gimp on stupid money

Both Elliot and Klemmer have been good investments for their respected teams. Stats alone back that up. Thomspon though .....

How and where has Flannagan improved "so much"? I don't believe he has. Comparing his stats from when he played under Baz to him now playing under Potter doesn't show him "improve so much" as you're saying. He just hasn't cried during an interview under Potter like he did uncer Baz's tenure BUT there's still time LOL

I’ve no reason too but I hate west tigers, not sure why maybe comments on here have influenced me or possibly because of that soft arse Tamou, crying for a penalty then my lad missing 5 games, shocking decision
Tigers have certainly downgraded Gildart's game!
