I'm actually pretty sure this happens frequently ... just doesn't get the coverage unless it's our players
I'm okay if they do but FFS have some semblance of respect to the employer paying your bills and not plaster it over the news.

How hard is it for Dearden and his manager to say there's interest in my client but his only focus is the Broncos and discussions will continue privately.

I think it’s the trying to drive his price up is what is irking people
Well if the Broncos are stupid enough to let it drive his price up, then the club has clearly not learnt. Something tells me that once Donaghy takes over the reigns the ridiculous contracts that we have been handing out for the past 4 or 5yrs will not be happening any longer.
Look at the players that Melbourne have, and their salaries. I believe Smith was on a mill a year, compare that to the mill a year that we have gotten out of Milford.
Donaghy is a smart operator and Kevvie has already started to show that he isn’t willing to give money to players that don’t deserve it. His offloading of Ofa and bird are early examples of this.
If the club chooses to give Dearden anything over 500k, they have rocks in their heads.

It's part of the business. Every club is doing it to every other club. It's nothing new.

Your issue is with it being reported. Yet the organisation reporting this owns the Broncos.

A halfback potentially at the club he loves and works for.
I get that but you wrote it like Tom has no real interest in leaving so is just humouring JT then how is that a favour?

Ayoub: "Hey JT as a favour I have wasted your time and potentially caused discontent with your club's current halves, you're welcome".

Is playing it out publicly part of business? Did Croft? Is B Smith playing it out publicly? Did Tamou? Asiata?

JAC did but he had permission from his club to find a new place.

Fairly sure Payten came out and said he wants Morgan at 6
Have heard that as well, which means they may go Clifford as 7 for 12 months and hope that Dearden can come in as a 7 from then onwards, but what's the plan if they dont get Dearden?

I believe Asi is a 6 and Drinkwater is a 6 or 1, add in Morgan who's always been a 6 (excluding 5 weeks in 2017) and they're basically in the same boat as us with 6's everywhere but no 7... Except they just let a very promising 7 walk out the door.

I believe someone said Sam Walker is off contract next year... we should look to resolve Dearden soon to give us time to go after Sam if Dearden walks.

Understand there are issues between Walker bros and the Broncos, but PW and Seibold are gone... that only leaves the amateur hour that is Nolan, but Kevvie might be able to mend some bridges

No that wasn't my intention I just meant that if JT asks Sam Ayoub for a chance to impress Dearden he will get it.

bad example ... Croft publicly met with Seibs during the Storms finals campaign
Yeah but it was a private meeting that leaked (maybe on purpose), rather than a let's call the newspaper and tell them we're touring other clubs.

Exactly but everyone does it , I tell my boss regularly I'm worth more and have other companies interested in me. If you don't then you're going to get low balled all the time, it's just business.
I don’t have a problem with it it just seems many do.

Yeah I know that is why I agreed with you.
Most seem to have an issue with it and that's why there should be a trade window, and also get rid of this bullshit letting players to sign a year prior. Fans have every to be pissed about the situation and the fact the media love to slam us makes it worse.

Asi is more a center than a half, just played 6 last year because they were a bit short of players. Heard Payten saying as well he sees drinkwater as a 1.

I would like dearden to stay but if he goes, it is not the end of the world. We could go get sam walker back (now that kevie and donaghy are at the helm, this may be possible), or someone else, or the "next big talent" will come along in a year or two. We just need to move on.
