Bluetongues trade - Jennings

Bluetongues trade - Jennings Empty Approved - Blue Tongues

Post  Pooh-Bah on Wed Apr 09, 2014 4:42 pm

Contract for $670,000 approved and registered for Michael Jennings to the Blue Tongues

At least this time we had a 'real' bidding war - not like the farce that was last week with DWZ and the multiple "and I'll raise you by a $1" bids (and both the bidding wars so far have featured DBT (Daddy Blue Tongue)

2 observations from the fence

Mr. Jennings sees an increase in his value from 597k to 670k after being released last week by the Martians - will he be able to justify these $$$ scratch 

and the Showers did a fine job making sure the remaining balance of the Blue Tongues account was reduced by greater than 50% Wink

Bluetongues trade - Jennings Empty Well...actually

Post  Gutsy on Tue Apr 08, 2014 12:19 pm

As mentioned by the (wonderful and eloquent) Committee earlier, we have only scored under 50 once this year, and really don't need Jennings.

While we were a little interested in buying him so he wouldn't play against us, we truly believe he is not that much of a threat, and were only interested in seeing how high we could make Brindabella go in their spending as they have FAR too much money in their kitty - trying to level the paying field, if you will.

SO - good luck to him with the Blue Tongues. I have no doubt he will be as successful as all the players on big bucks (eg Sandow, David Klemmer etc)

Plus - who am I to deny a friendly massage to a team?

What good is money if you can't spend it.

We'll offer $670k and promise the other players a trip to the local rub n' tug to make up

Jennings we believe will accept our final offer of $664,000, knowing he is coming to strong one-town, one-team club with major corporate sponsorship (a large part of his salary is third-party based).

We look forward to seeing him in our colours (whatever they are)

Bluetongues trade - Jennings Empty Hayne is getting jealous

Post  Gutsy on Tue Apr 08, 2014 11:52 am

Jarryd Hayne's management has contacted us asking for a better pay deal as they have heard whispers in the media about what Jennings is being offered. If successful, we may have to look at back-ending Jarryd's deal to keep him placated, but if we don't get young Michael it won't matter.
So let's make it matter

$628,000

Hmm....not sure what is happening with Brad Tighe's AC (can't bloody find anything yet), so we may need cover for him, so $588,000 is our revised offer

Showers will happily pay $501,000 for Jennings - not to play him, but to make sure he doesn't play against us

I thought that rule applied to every player - am I missing something?  Laughing
