Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

I'm sorry you lost me when you said Souths were a powerhouse. In the late 60s yes, but I don't know what side you've been watching for the past 30 years - occasional finals contenders at best. Anyway the point isn't comparing the "powerhouseyness" of clubs, the point is comparing the mentality or r...

Re: NRL unveil new competition branding

I don't mind them redesigning the logos, what I can't cop is the marketing BS that comes out at the same time.

I could do it for $50 - "hey we've got a new logo, now let's play some footy".

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

How is that any different to Bennett Broncos 2019 or Seibold Rabbitohs 2019? Firstly, i couldnt give a rat's about Brisbane or Souths, my only concern is our club. Brisbane and Souths are both powerhouses of the competition on the field with an endless stream of brilliant youngsters in their clubs ...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

I agree with Jirksyr, worst case scenario and we miss out on both Maguire and Bennett, we’ll stick with Cleary. Maybe re-evaluate the coaching landscape at the end of 2019 and see whose available. Worst case scenario is if Cleary is coaching us next season. A bloke who will just be scratching his c...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Turns 22 next week. Debuted in 2016 with one game (which the NRL had to give permission for). Did his left shoulder in pre-season of 2017, but played 13 games before doing his right shoulder and having both shoulders reconstructed, meaning a 7 month rehab and no preseason. Ended up playing 13 games...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Ill take Maguire. Better bargaining chip for next season of musical coaches. Hopefully we can trade him for Wayne in 12 months time. So we'd have a coach for a year with one eye elsewhere? Sounds familiar Contracts aren't worth a thing these days so why not just grab the best we can now and that ca...

Re: Have your say on the redevelopment of Concord Oval

Surely, given the fact this has been spoken about for the last 5 years, there should have been a plan in place so that it was started as soon as the funding materialised. What does this mean? I assume you followed the link, there is a plan, it's nicely called the "Preliminary Concept Plan". You eve...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

We are an embarrassment. Our preferred options are holding off seeing if they can get a better offer elsewhere. We need a plan e so that we can move forward and sign a coach. Put something in the contract that prevents them meeting with other clubs before the season that the contract expires, punis...

"I can't believe Pascoe is overseas blah blah blah. Who takes a holiday at a time like this!?!?

What an amateur, can't believe this mug is running...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

There are a LOT of assumptions going on here. The main one being that both Bennett & Maguire WANT to coach here. We could end up pretty red faced. Not really. This club has made us underwhelmed and disenfranchised over the years. Used to the worst outcome honestly. Fire up you mopey sad sack. Club ...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

How daft that the article leads that Bennett has reportedly gone cold on Tigers, then subsequently says "an offer that extends his career beyond that from the likes of the Wests Tigers could be hard to turn down".

Way to disagree with yourself. Also posters - where is the reference link?

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

the longer it drags on, it only makes me doubt that Justin & Marina have any control at all. and the last thing we need is to make rash decisions that only lead us to a repeat of the coaching predicament post Sheens. Slightly conflicting there Lauren. I think Justin and Marina are taking their time...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Not sure how signing a premiership winning coach is a disaster but each to their own I guess. There can be no argument that Maguire has a superior winning record than Cleary, in all respects - premierships, total wins, finals wins etc. You can argue back and forward about the strength of the roster...
