    People worried about 3 year deals, it what clubs like us have to offer, people aren't going to uproot for another city for a similar deal for similar money.

    I think the other thing that may get us Fergo is Pearce , Skd and Guerra telling him how much better it is to live in Newy than in Sydney especially with a young Familly that alone could get us over the line …

    Lovely piece of truth from the Roosters. Recruitment is meant to happen in the shadows! They would love that, if all recruitment happened without the public knowing, and only signing announcements made.

    This right here is why salaries should be public, no shadowy back room dealings involving bag men and 3rd party agreements.

    Anyway, they wanted to keep Pearce and he left. I wonder what thoughts Fergo had about that whole affair and how it went down.

    I see no reason why their salaries can't be made public as a matter of transparency. As a government employee, my salary is in the public domain for all to see whether I want it to be or not.

    We have made our offer, if Blake wants to come here then he will.

    If not, rather not have him just for a few extra hundred K but he would rather have played somewhere else.

    Roosters flyer Blake Ferguson signs with Parramatta on three-year deal



    Phil Rothfield, The Daily Telegraph
    2 minutes ago




    THE Parramatta Eels have signed former Blues State of Origin winger Blake Ferguson on a three-year deal to start next season.

    Ferguson will quit the Roosters at the end of the season to sign a $1.5 million contract with the Eels, his fourth club in the NRL following stints at Cronulla, Canberra and the Roosters.

    The Roosters star knocked back an offer from the Newcastle Knights to accept Parramatta’s offer.

    He also had an approach from the Cronulla Sharks, who need to replace Newcastle bound Edrick Lee

    He had been offered a one-year extension at the Roosters but wanted long-term security.

    Ferguson has been off alcohol and gambling since going into rehab in the last off-season.

    I was highly unaware of anything gambling related, probably not that fussed after seeing guys like Simona/Foran/Tandy

    Not too concerned we need front rowers not wingers.

    Was looking forward to him coming. Oh well, focus should be on front rowers moving forward

    The Eels have also dangled a centre spot at him and paid him to be a centre also as opposed to us and the sharks where he's be a winger

    Take Michael Jennings if we can at half the price?

    Jennings had a 2 year option extension in his favour that he had to agree to before June 30. If he hasnt done so maybe he's a free agent. His form this year has been surprisingly average. He was outstanding for Tonga in the world cup.

    Eels have been an abomination so it's hard to say

    Not saying I want it to happen but the discussion might kick off again
