    There were a heap of rumours on here weeks ago about Mattie heading to the Cowboys.

    The Panthers (on Twitter) have just announced the signing of Segeyaro (sorry of spelt wrong) to the Panthers...I know they still have Payne BUT could this mean the rumours might be true???

    Meh, if we are going to lose a heap of players, get them all out of the way this year. I'm now of the opinion that Toovey should ask who wants to be here, who doesn't, these are our offers - you don't want them, wrack off.....

    Now lets focus on football.

    It hopefully leaves him where he is.

    I like almost every fan can not fathom why contract negotiations are not restricted to the almost 5 month off season.

    Agreed UP, maybe the ICC will do something about this absurd situation. Gallop clearly didn't think it was worth any effort to clean up.

    We do not have the luxury to restrict it to the off season. We compete with a few other sports for our players. These players want some security on their pay cheques. If we had a base rate of say $150 000, then we could include a draft as well. Have this as a 20 day period after the grand final. It would need to be more enticing to the players to do it this way with monetary reward the only option. I think leave it the way it is or give origin a 3 week run with players rested and contracts registered only during that period or during 3 weeks in the off season.

    I am guessing they have to upgrade alot of players like we do. Cant see how cowboys can buy anyone with the massive names they already have on their roster heaps of origin players too!.

    If he is leaving the Cowboys, this reopen the rumor that Balin may in fact be going home. My concern is we have not had any confirmation of players signing since Matai re signed. You would think the club would keep its supporters informed of progress other than board room bumblings?

    I think Ballin is likely to stay. The Cowboys would have to pay overs to even be a chance of signing him.

    Ballin was approached by NQ because Payne supposedly going to ESL. I dont know if that is still happening or not.

    I was speaking with Alan Tongue on Wednesday - his daughter goes to the same school as my kids. He is one of the most genuine and nice guys you would ever have the fortune to meet! Anyway, basically said that the Raiders have given up on Ballin.......

    I don't think Ballin will go.
    Cowboys will stick with Payne and try to keep as many of their star forwards as they can. They have a gun forward pack.
    Pardon the pun, but they have plenty of other cattle they'll try and keep before they sign Ballin I reckon.

    The Mole is saying Anthony Mitchell from Roosters to Nth Qld this week. So maybe Ballin is staying after all.

    Gee that's harsh, under the current CEO there has been news releases on the website the moment a player has officially signed or left the club.

    Just another thIng those who think the cowboys would be closer to home for Matt.

    Sam Perrett has also asked for an immediate release to join the dogs. They must have a bloody good accountant over there.

    I should have been more clear, I meant about ongoing negotiations, and nor should they keep us informed until a deal is done either way.
