Re: TV Coverage

It is 11 days until we kick off, 10 for the Friday night game and still no kick off times. I know it’s a case of he who pays the piper calls the tune but BT are really messing us around. We haven’t even been told when we will be told. No other sport would put up with this.

Well I would rather have no crowds than no rugby.
Even if the Kick off time is midnight as currently stated on Prem Website

Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

No fans in crowd anytime soon. See Johnson’s announcement today 31 July.

So TV for everyone. I fail to understand with 14 days to go why there are no kick off times available.

Is this BT or Prem Rugby delay or have I missed something.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

Some clarity at least, surely the Taufua thing needs sorting one way or another asap for both parties. Agree on both points. Maybe wishful thinking but I suspect, or at least hope, that we are now on a much sounder financial footing than most other clubs. Ours has been a much more radical approach ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Over the past 4-5 seasons I would be surprised if Manu has averaged more than 10 games a season for Tigers which equates to £45k per game. IMO we would be far better served in recruiting a centre with no international commitments so that we are able to develop a game plan which does not solely invo...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

If Tigers unilaterally terminated Tuilagi's contract for no good reason and he was only able to get a contract at another club on a lower wage, he could well be entitled to claim the difference as compensation for damages arising from breach of contract. However, I don't think that is the situation...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Unless Tigers are paying half his wages... Have I missed something but if we pay we decide if he plays and who he plays for surely. He can sit in his home gym until he agrees settlement with us and then moves on. He will be claiming compensation for his lost 25% but we need not hurry. Obviously at ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Good summary. Only other negotiation point is the voluntary 25% cut in salary that preceded this.

Do players have a claim on it and could it be a lever on both sides to get a clean break so all parties can move on.

In this situation a player going into this without an employment / contract lawyer’s advice would be akin to facing Archer without a box.

And all of them have short careers and more than likely many years of ill health in later life due to what they put their bodies through. They are not greedy nor selfish but need to be as hard a negotiator as the club is. We can support both and hope they arrive at a compromise that works but if th...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

The steady decline has been going on since Cockers left. No the steady decline started whilst Cockers was still here. The decline was exacerbated after he left by the truly moronic decision to appoint Matt O'Connor a man who virtually destroyed every structure at the club. The massively optimistic ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Accepting for the moment that clubs, including Tigers, pushed the boundaries up to 2015, Sarries/Wray's two finger approach post 2015 deserves all it gets. I saw Bracken trying to equate Bloodgate to this - saying the transgression was of a similar order. It was not. Cheating to win 1 game vs cheati...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

I believe that the small shareholders don't have a say in if they want to sell their shares or not if someone wants to buy the whole thing. Looking into this it depends upon whether an agreement is in place in form of a shareholders agreement, which usually either specifies a price for the forced b...
