saddos....who said anything about one player not me......OMG this one has to be one of the most childlike forums I have ever visited......get a grip mate and grow up.....how old are you ?

 

OK, so why come on being the font of all knowledge, assuming that we actually haven't considered who might be leaving? You clearly have something to prove to make up for your inadequacy.

George wont be staying unless he decides to tear up his contract.....or decides he does not want to give himself a better opportunity of winning something at Featherstone. I think Nicko is a good replacement,not quite as experienced but good distribution, eye for an opening, but can take wrong options a lot.
There are a lot of players leaving batley at the end of the season, many of which are still not in the public domain and some will be huge losses to your team next season.

 

And as said, did you really think we didn't know that a lot of our team are leaving at the end of the season? Your name would suggest you are in the know.

Hes not the only one on this thread who thinks he knows more than he does or thinks he has some insider knowledge

Maybe not, but no one else has a name that in itself suggests they have some insider knowledge

I wonder if he's the same agent whose cock up resulted in one of the players mentioned on this thread having no choice but to sign for a local rival of ours a couple of years ago, we didn't actually want to move clubs.

For the player's sake I sincerely hope not.

i responded to George being unlikely to tear up a contract and that in Nicko you were getting a decent replacement....and as you already know a large exodus of players.......If you already know that what part of any of that made you choke on your farleys rusk ?

 

Because you ignoramus, you were claiming to have more knowledge than anyone else here, as if we cared. The reason I am choking on my Farley's rusk is not that players are leaving, but cretins like you are coming on here claiming to be the Oracle!

Ive never understood why semi pro players need agents - they dont get paid much as it is, and then give away money to someone foe nothing, would have thought ghey would have enough about them to negotiate their own contracts.

You wouldnt get an agent involved negotiating a salary for a new job at say Tesco (for arguments sake) so dont see what they gain from it.

Only people gaining seem to be the agents.

Can anyone enlighten me as to why?
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

I guess that, by employing someone who's 'clued up' to handle their affairs, players assume that they will be offered the best deal possible. Also, having someone negotiating on your behalf removes the stress of having to tout your services to every club in the league at the end of each season. I guess that they have their benefits in that respect. However, I can't really fathom why any semi-pro player would be willing to pay a representative a portion of their wage for a job that they could surely do themselves. Maybe they don't trust the clubs to offer them what they're worth? I have a suspicion that there's also a little vanity and 'keeping up with the Jones'' mentality invokved - i.e. "I've got an agent, I've made it". All supposition of course, I don't really know the ins and outs of any arrangement.
However, in terms of the whole 'phenomenon', I'd say that undoubtedly the biggest winners are the agents themselves, with the players in second and the clubs bottom of the pile. In a time when clubs like our own are struggling desperately to stay afloat and make ends meet, agents aren't helpful as they simply push wages up in order to increase the size of their own cut.

Come on guys, dont feed the troll, he's no more anyones agent than a sausage roll is a packet of crisps and you're all falling for it.

 

Just another disgruntled nobody who has probably been banned and has nothing better to do now it's the school holidays

 

Back under your bridge little boy.

I actually thought it was the return of Eddie Rombo but realise now the error of my ways. And that was my point about his name. What agent would come on here proclaiming he is an agent? Doesn't say much for his ability to maintain confidentiality!

I cant help but laugh......wow some absolute shockers on here

 

I've seen people who can't help but laugh before - most of them were wearing straitjackets at the time.  Put the scatter-gun away and come out with a single substantive fact and people might, just might, give you some credibility.  The only thing you have proven so far is that you are an indiscriminately offensive jerk who responds to every point with a witless personal insult.  Go and purvey your garbage elsewhere.  No-one here is listening.

I understood that leak had joined for the rest of this,and next season. therefore, assuming that both Hemingway and Moore leave, he would step up at 7 and leave Nicholson at 9, again assuming that Flanagan goes! Then of course there's young Whitmore, if he gets retained/signs onso we have plenty choice at 7 and 9 and short term cover at 6. Things ain't looking too bad!

playersagent is actually an agent, he acts on behalf of Anthony Nicholson and around another 30 players at Championship and Super League level.

 

Unfortunately he is infact correct about the mass exodus of players from Batley next year due to wage structure issues but does not go on to tell you that the same amount of moves will be happening at other clubs aswell.

 

You boys have already made ample signings for next year but they cannot be announced until later this year hence you only announcing contract extensions of players you already hold the registration for.

 

Chill.
