So the tigers are going to be

Scott/Burston
Ballinger/Walker
Rush/Greer
Goulding/Lewis
Brasswell/Tomilnson

Could be ok if imports play well, Ballinger regains old form, no injurys and Goulding improves a little.

If Dorsey is willing to play for minimum or close to and the 36ers have only 2 minimum salary spots left should we look at Dorsey off the bench as our import SG/SF? or are we better getting a Aussie (Dillon?) or a SEABL import in that spot?

I like this Tigers team with a really good PG but Im not convinved Braswell is that man. Am interested to know if they got Goulding for his GCB rating of 1-point, that would allow them another import if Braswell gets citizenship during the season.

If the tigers are still paying is salary (as he was contracted for this season) we could get him cheap. Wouldn't mind the sixers taking a flyer on him

Orbit, he left Cairns for more money within his desired occupation. Whats that got to do with biting the hand that feeds you? Cairns fans seem real bitter, be uset with the Tigers for their solid recruiting at the time, but no point blaming the players.

Goulding and Walker in one team, not sure if there will be enough room for the egos in that locker room and the plane could explode from the pressure. Lets hope Anstey stays out of the basketball side of things otherwise there will be an implosion

Anon, Cairns is bitter about how the players went about it. Apparently there were handshake deals between a couple/all of the three players and then they went back on their word.

Thanks Spursfan that's what i'm talking about. Prob did us a favour as they would have had ego stinking 2nd years anyway. Not so dirty on imports as money is their game. Dillon sucking up now for a 2nd chance. Karma's a bitch!!

Nothing is guarnteed until the contract has been signed sealed and delivered. Naive of Cairns to count their chickens before they hatched.

6ers should go after Dorsey, would come cheap and may be a better option with no real pressure to perform on his shoulders. Has a bit of a backbone that the 6ers roster still lacks.

@Anon - its sad when a man's word isn't enough anymore. If expecting a man to honour his word (verbal/handshake agreement) is naive, then karma showed its a wicked mistress in the end. All 3 agreed to terms, were given contracts and then wouldn't sign them / delayed - obviously other teams not negotiation during RFA isn't enforced with the Tigers ? (DD's comments saying he had to make a decision 2 weeks before RFA ended...)

That said, Dorsey and Chewie got 10% more per year than with the Cairns contracts. 12 months later - neither has a job and DD stood by his principles and quit the Tigers and has no job. What that shows that while in Cairns, a man's word is paramount, in Melbourne, a man's word and a contract don't mean shit.

DD has always been dishonest, nothing new there. People think when someone is quiet and say the right things they are a decent person. He was always going to screw Cairns over and the Melbourne thing was him following his boyfriend Cam and doing whatever he wanted.
