Star Sydney Roosters fullback James Tedesco and his family have reportedly sought out legal help concerning parts of his contract.

According to Channel 9, the Roosters have also been in discussions with the NRL integrity unit over the contract, including third-party deals involved.

Tedesco’s former manager and one of the league’s most powerful agents, Isaac Moses, is allegedly the focus of the investigation.

“It relates to some third-party deals that were done by his now-former agent Isaac Moses,” Channel 9′s Danny Weidler said.

“Roosters officials have been talked to by the integrity unit, questions have been asked about the validity of the contracts and who knew what about the deals.

“Tedesco has done nothing wrong and the Roosters are not under some kind of salary cap investigation, they are co-operating.

“Tedesco’s family have approached lawyers about the matter, they are unhappy about elements of the contract.

“There may be broader issues that Moses is facing. A number of players have left his stable after a company split.”

Tedesco has another two-years left on his contract with the Roosters and declined to comment when contacted by Channel 9. Isaac Moses was unable to be contacted.

  1. This is the chance we have been waiting for. If Greenburg does not launch a comprehensive investigation into the Roosters it will expose the NRLs bias.

  2. Look we all know Uncle Nick will sort it out..and there will be no investigation outcome from the NRL…

    Anyone else notice Teddy’s new teeth? obviously they came in the brown paper bag?,

  3. What a surprise! They need to investigate all contracts & third party deals at the French Dressed Chickens. They didn’t hire the two dodgy back room guys for nothing.

  4. MR ED , glad it’s not you carrying out the investigation.
    I suspect this will open a long overdue can of worms involving more than Third Party Ted.
    Thank you NRL for finally acting on everyone’s suspicions about this shifty joint.

  5. I would like to propose a simple change that if adopted by the NRL, would go a long way towards sorting out or at least limiting the extent of clubs exceeding the cap. The simple change is this :

    “Any club that plays in a grand final is automatically subjected to a salary cap investigation before the start of the following season”

  6. Edwardwoodwood is actually 100% correct, Roosters in no trouble at all but that agent certainly is!

  7. Stan, yes it’s the old suspended fool reincarnated as another fool.
    MR ED looks like he’s in overdrive with Third Party Ted.
    I hear Cronk is a little nervous with all this.
    Is he next in a list of around 6-7.
    Might have to re sign Aubusson next year after all when a few have to leave so the roosters can fit under the cap.

  8. Here we go again
    ToiletONE throws fuel on some smoke, then walks away as he is linguistically challenged.
    If you would have read ZTs article rather ths look at the pictures all this diatribe would not be fuelled with anger.

    This agent, Isaac Moses, who managers many elite sports stars : Falou, Siebold, Luke Brooks, Sharon Woods & Teddy, just to mention a few.
    This Agent, has fiddled the TPPs of Ted. So they’re going to court….
    So our resident Village Idiot (TwittyONE) who is in search of a village somewhere, because Souffs don’t have a Club house, drinking hole after their ‘home’ games at Scud Park, 25 kms from their so called heartland, is Chook bashing… Boring

    TwatONE, I’m not saying you’re stupid, I’m just saying you’ve got bad luck when it comes to thinking.

  9. chookstirfry I’m suggesting you are stupid if you think because the roosters are saying there’s nothing to be concerned about then let’s just accept that and move on.
    Now go and work out how to sign up some members.

  10. TittyONE
    30,000 members? Where are they?
    At Scud Park? Don’t think so
    At your Souffs Club House? Doesn’t exist..
    So where? Souffs membership is a fabrication.
    I’m writing a book, I’ll send you a copy.
    “30,000 Members, 90,000 Teeth”
    I’m jealous of the people that haven’t met you

  11. chookstirfry redneck look with envy
    That’s right, 30 000 and counting at this most successful club in history.
    Now , back to Third Party Ted , reading in other forums with his contract and 3rd party deal he’s on $1.2M a year. WOW.
    No wonder he wants to remain a sombrero.

  12. ME ED and your cronies please note the following:

    How each Sydney NRL team fares if KPI’s were introduced for relocation

    How every Sydney NRL team stacks up as relocation debate intensifies.
    Rugby league legends Mark Geyer and Gorden Tallis believe a set of key performance indicators should be applied to the NRL’s Sydney clubs to determine who should relocate.

    Geyer reckons clubs should be judged over the next five seasons on sponsorship dollars, average crowd figures, on-field success and commitment to junior football.

    So how are the Sydney clubs currently faring?

  15. So there you have it in black and white so once and for all MR ED and your 4 aliases, give up on your made up porkies and deal with the facts regarding your pathetic low integrity club.
    Depleting members
    No Juniors
    1 junior now that Lamb has taken off.
    Making moronic statements that membership numbers and grass root junior development isn’t important is a comment only a cretin would make because both those KPI’s have the roosters in a dismal state of affairs.
    Then we have the crowd figures that you stupidly push as the only relevant KPI and even there as you can see you fail behind the Rabbitohs because the numbers you offer dont reflect the true numbers over all the games, just the ones that favor your miniscule parameters.
    As you can see , the roosters just dont stack up and explains the lack of following despite 3 name changes in desperation to do so.

  17. EdithWoodPulp.
    Are they all chapters from your new book above? ‘Crap On Forever About Chicken Poop’. I’d give it a miss if I were you. No ones interested in reading it. Each chapter looks long & boring .

  18. MR EDwood, once again you conveniently show statistics based on selective research and with your numbers you fail to add the number of games Souths have played away from Sydney to promote NRL which naturally will attract less crowds for now unlike the roosters who dont like travelling and request a draw that gives them the most home games as they can at the SCG.
    ROOSTERS
    Memberships: 16,264
    Average crowd at Sydney venues over past five years: 13,887 (49 games)

    RABBITOHS
    Memberships: 29,597
    Average crowd at Sydney venues over past five years: 14,358 (45 games)(5 GAMES LESS THAN ROOSTERS AS WELL)

    These figures confirm Souths superior game attendance over the past 5 year DESPITE THE ROOSTERS HAVING WON 2 PREMIERSHIPS SINCE 2013 AND 4 MINOR PREMIERSHIPS.

    MR EDwooddope1 please give up on your constant gibberish myths and porkies as you can see from the OFFICIAL STATISTICS you have no argument and as others point out very painfully boring with your FICTIONAL BIAS POSTS.

  19. SOUTHS -11 Juniors and a strong growing grass roots junior development system.
    ROOSTERS- 2 Juniors and a scrapped/failed grass roots junior development program at the hands of junior AFL and Soccer because of poor management and dismal funding by the Roosters.

    MR EDwooddope1 conveneniently considers declining membership and no grass roots junior development as not relevant to an NRL club’s KPI’s for relocation WHY?, because the Roosters are the worst for both for Sydney based NRL clubs.

    Its a NO BRAINER the Sydney Roosters or whatever they call themselves are the logical club for relocation by a mile.

  20. Twentyone. Logical club for relocation by a mile? If the roosters have better home crowds more members more money more sponsorship and a better home ground more success and one less junior than Manly how is that by a mile?
    Their home crowds are better than the sharks dragons penrith and manly and more success.
    So i guess it all boils down to Juniors. They have Junior Development squads in U13s U14s U15s U16s U18s and Flegg.
    19 players in their current roster come through these systems.You keep saying they have NO JUNIORS. They may only have 4 Junior clubs but they are trying to get another 5 off the ground.
    The poor management and dismal funding is decades in the past its not the case today.
    In 2008 Souths named their Juniors team of the past 100years. At fullback was Eric Simms. Simms moved from the country to Sydney at the age of 18 and was signed at 19. If Souths consider him a Junior then Easts should be able to claim Cordner Friend Manu Mitchell etc etc Juniors also.

  21. busta, I appreciate your civil response to my posts and should have clarified when I stated “by a mile” it was compared to Souths.
    Saying it was the worst etc…. is directed to a few morons on here.
    Always happy to exchange genuine and common sense opinions with those capable of same which you seem to offer.
    If you do some checking you will find Eric Simms played as a junior for La Perouse after moving there before graded with South Sydney.
    Boyd Cordner was signed directly by the roosters whilst still in Taree.

  22. MR Edwooddope1 once again fabricated based on your convenient irrelevant myths.
    Haven’t bothered reading your exegerated garbage because I have already given you the facts.
    Give up mate you have been caught out too often as a crap teller and have no credibility on here.
    Move on you gibbering fool.

  23. Twentyone. Correct mate I said he moved to Sydney at 18 graded at 19.That one year he played for the La Perouse Panthers.
    Cordner was brought to Sydney as a 16 year old. He played for 2 !/2 years in the Roosters NYC team before making his 1st grade debut in 2011.
    What i was getting at was many people believe on this site that to be classed as a Junior they have to be grass root like U7s right through to 1st grade. So my point is right or wrong if souths classify Simms as a Junior after 1 season at la perouse at 18 then players coming to a club at 15 or 16 and playing in development teams maybe should have the same classification.

  24. busta dont want to dwell on it but technically La Perouse is registered as a grass roots Souths junior club even if he did play for just 1 year.
    Roosters NYC is not. It’s a Sydney Roosters lower grade/age level that is fed by grass roots juniors eg. Paddo Colts, Bondi United if they are good enough to be graded there. Cordner didn’t play for any rooster grass roots junior club before NYC.
    MR Edwooddope please keep your gibberish out of this one please.

  25. Oh TwatONE you’ve been outed as a Souffs liar…. Factless, dope.
    I don’t know what makes you stupid, but it really works..
