Billy Dib fighting Amir Khan is a disgrace

During the week it was announced that Billy Dib would fight Amir Khan in Saudi Arabia for the newly minted WBC Welterweight Pearl title – whatever that is – only for the WBC to withdraw the Pearl title and announce that the fight would be for their vacant International title.

Why does it have to be on his timetable?

They offered, he did not accept, they pulled the offer and spent the cash elsewhere. End of story.

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

And now the Tigers offer is off the table because he decided he had better things to do than go to a meeting with their coach.

So guess the market has changed by your logic as currently the market for him is what again?

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Sorry when did I make a slanderous claim? What exactly did I accuse him of?

Do you actually understand the definition of the word slanderous?

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Not my place to make other peoples business public.

If and when people need to know I am sure it will come out.

I actually really hope he finds a club where he is happy and kills it. NSW and Australia could use all the guns they can get. Qld will never take it easy on us and the PI’s are coming to get us so we need our most talented and gifted to be at their best!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

I don’t think ‘loyalty’ and Wayne Bennet should ever be used in the same sentence!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

The market is what people are willing to pay for your services.

The Roosters thought he was worth $800k if he signed at that time. After he decided to test the market they made a decision to spend that money elsewhere and move on.

THAT is the market, not some fantasy where LM gets to set his price and destination on his own timetable!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Well that is there choice as they are the ones paying the cash!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

So your saying he is surrounding himself with the wrong people?

Not sure I have ever been forced to take advise from people I have chosen to be around.

Are you saying is family does not have his best interests at heart?

TWAS has pointed out that he is only exercising his right to test the market.

So which is it? Is he Naive? Stupid? Greedy? Or I will ask again, is it all just someone else’s fault???

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

“But they’ve done it in a real “accept this right now or bugger off” sort of way. The last season of his current contract hasn’t even started.”

So what? They are the ones forking out the cash, why can they not pull the offer?

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

True.

The Roosters also have no obligation to keep an offer made open if he does not accept it.

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Yeah it is reasonable. They offered him something, he said he wanted to look elsewhere, so they said fine offer off the table. End of.

Not sure what industry you work in, but if someone offers me a job and I go back to them and say I want to explore my options, I am certain that same offer wont be available when I come knocking hat in hand!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

OK Tim, so what was his excuse for not showing up to a meeting with Madge the Tigers setup while making it known they were prepared to offer him by far the most money of any club?

I am sure someone else will be to blame!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Just because Bird got paid that does not mean that any centre is automatically worth more.

The way he has played for that money probably suggest to every club that it is probably not worth shelling out that kind of money to any centre!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

No you should not. That’s the point!

There are plenty of 22 year olds who earn far less than he does who get on with and take responsibility for their own actions and don’t try to blame the rest of the world when they don’t get their way.

Mind you there are plenty in his generations that think like it seems he does that the world somehow owes him something!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

He can do, and the roosters have every right to withdraw an offer they made to him!

They have zero obligation to him apart from paying him what he is owed for his current contract!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Correct, though whether he has given them 7 years of his “best” is another matter.

What exactly do the Roosters owe him?

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Guess you and Tim both enjoyed being coddled by mummy and daddy for far too long.

Most people don’t get that luxury and actually need to GROW UP

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

And how much were you earning at 22 Tim?

Let’s also remember he is a father. If you are a millionaire who has a kid and cant sort your S… out, then there is plenty more wrong with you than being a “kid”

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Um, because he has stated publicly that his dream would be to play for the same club as his father???

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Sorry, apart from the mention of “Commonwealth”, which is not talking about the British commonwealth but the Commonwealth of the States of Australia, how does the anthem in any way tie us to the royal family???

Stop making up rubbish! And maybe learn or even read the words!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Pretty sure most people would sign a fixed contract for $750k a year at age 22

Nobody is forcing him to have managers, who then go around trying to up his value.

Whose fault is it that he has not locked in a new contract after next year? Someone else obviously!!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Yes he is 22 years old.

He is also earning $750,000 a year for playing a game! Spare me the bleeding heart rubbish!

There is a hell of a lot that the Roosters have kept quiet this year about his carry-on and there are PLENTY of reasons why they could well have just sacked him but tried to protect him!

I really hope the “kid” gets the help he needs, but if not maybe he can work for a living like plenty in the bush who don’t come close to getting what he earns.

Otherwise, just another “kid” who wasted his golden opportunity!

Leave Latrell alone, he's done nothing wrong

Your not wrong about LSU’s defense.

The way Plumlee was allowed to just rush through the middle off PA plays was embarrassing!

If LaMelo want’s to head back to the States to prepare for the draft, signing LiAngelo is not going to stop that.

It is just wasting money on dud player

The Illawarra Hawks should sign LaMelo Ball’s brother

Yes it is possible that Hansen improved as a coach between his stint at Wales and his stint with the AB’s but lets be fair dinkum he had a phenomenal side with the AB’s including 2 blokes who will go down among the greatest ever in key positions.

Eddie took Japan to a win over SA last world cup and has turned England around to beat an AB’s side pretty much everyone said would not happen pre-game!

Little bit different scenarios!
