  • The club should pay......

    Whatever it costs to keep Mitchell. The guy is a matchwinner, even if it means getting rid of 2 players to accommodate him, he is that good. Possibly the best player we've ever had, Artie included.

    i would tend to disagree, i would prefer to keep keary, teddy, boyd over latrell. im fully prepared to get shouted down for this, and i love latrell and hope he stays, but as i read with gi, he is a highlights reel player, he can go missing for entire games or moments, boyd, teddy definitley do not do that. we will replace latrell if necessary maybe not like for like but good enough...and if latrell only stays for money what can we really expect performance wise ? a fair price currently for latrell would i feel be in the 750 - 850 bracket, the only way we can give him more is move him to 5/8 th and he makes a fist of it. there is no way he will be our fb with teddy for the simple fact that teddy is a far, far superior fb. no player is bigger then the team.

      I was watching Latrell tonight from start to finish. He was the only guy who touched the Rooster at the top of the banner running out. He's the guy who thumps the Rooster on his chest when he scores a try. He's also the guy who always celebrates with the fans even when he pops over a goal. It's things like that along with playing with a smile on his face which makes me think he is really content at Easts and has no real desire to go anywhere else. He seemed happy at the end to take photos, sign balls etc for the little kids and the big kids as well.

      So it's funny how with all the talk recently that he pulls a 5 star performance like that out of the bag for the tricolours even though I reckon he has been building up to it. Let's hope it's a sign where he is saying come on Easts, make me a good offer and let's put all this to bed and let the good times roll.

          If we were to lose him I would be depressed for months.

            That little kick he put on for Keary was sublime and was unstoppable everywhere else, What ever money Keary is on I now say Latrell should be on similar if he can consistently play to this sort of level.

              You canít screw your cap for one player and we wonít do it. Leave that to the other sides with fans that say we have no cap. Having said that, I think it more likely he stays than goes.

                  Latrell certainly had a blinder last night, a freakish performance by a freakish talent and I am proud to have him as a Rooster, but seriously the talk of paying him $1.2 or more under the present salary cap is ridiculous. Just can't be done because then Tedesco and Keary would deserve the same money and that's 35% of the salary cap on 3 players. Plus then do we pay Taukeaho the same as Taumalolo ?, How about Toups, Cordner, JWH, Manu, Toupaniua , Friend ? We have the best roster in the comp because we manage the cap better than any other club, and many other clubs have paid overs for certain players and are suffering for it big time. I am sure the club will do everything possible to keep him within reason. Surely there is more than just money involved in a players decision to decide his future. The Club, The coach, The chance to win Grand Finals, the other players, the culture... there is no other club which can offer Latrell what we can. Can you really imagine him going anywhere else ? I think he will stay, for a combination of all those reasons, he has grown up with us for 5 years and can be a Roosters legend. He will stay.

                    I reckon we will get him for $1m a season and I think he's worth every cent of it. He is the face of the game and extremely marketable, will easily pick up TPA's to top up his salary.

                      Tedesco every day as he's a fullback.

                      Jerry Rice was a better football player than Joe Montana but you'd take Montana all day, every day because he played the most important position.

                      Similarly, the world's greatest centre will never be more valuable than the world's greatest fullback; even if he's the better footy player.

                      On a side note, if it's Latrell for 1.2m or Joey for 600k then I'd probably take Joey tbh.

                      We can't win the comp without Teddy or Keary, but we can without Latrell. Just a few random thoughts.

                          He is definitley a once in a life time player & has that ability that no one else has. Todd Carney in 2010 was the best I'd seen at the Roosters till Latrell came along, he is sublime in attack. The Roosters can offer Latrell alot of thing not just money so hopefully who ever manages him understands the real big picture not just the big picture.

                              Mitchell said contract negotiations weren't even on his radar for 2019, insisting the stories about his future were just speculation.

                              "All this talk, I'm contracted until next year, I'm just happy to play out my years, then when it comes to negotiating, then we'll talk," Mitchell said.

                              "At the moment I just want to keep playing footy and not worry about rumours going around that people are making up.

                              "I see those things and I think 'I know they're not true'. I'm here to have fun and play footy with the boys and go through the season and build something."
                              Latrell Mitchell has addressed claims he could defect from the Roosters to Rabbitohs, as the real reasons e...
