Re: NRL unveil new competition branding

Arrows pointing to the ground magnificently sum up the direction the game has headed since Greenburg took over.
Surprised the germ didn't have his shining melon incorporated into the design somewhere.
Never mind that the game is in a state of shambles, coz "hey......we've got a CHEVRON!"

Re: Our past is killing our future

In this instance we haven't let Penrith kick sand in our face, we dug our heels in. That's all management can do with that. We need to jump at the chance at playing out of WSS, that is a no-brainer. The 5 home ground scenario has gotten us nowhere. There is nothing like Leichhardt but it might have...

^ Well put Steve-O. Pretty hard to argue with all of that.

Re: Our past is killing our future

I can't help to think that the many things that have happened in the past 7 seasons is killing ANY chance of us EVER becoming a consistent Top 8 side It is highly likely that as we enter season 2019 we will have our 6th coach in 8 seasons , even if Cleary stays it will be 5 and the 6th has clocked ...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

As opposed to the Bronco's who have arguably better coach they don't want who definitely has players re-considering their own positions at the club and yet the Broncs don't seem too concerned about all that sinking their ship. As if a coach is going to go out of their way to "sink" a club they are ...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

This sums the situation up perfectly. Don't need a bloke here who's main focus from hereon in will be which players he needs to get to Penrith in order for his bubba to get a premiership ring. Hopefully Pascoe has more brains than people on here who are happy to let Ivan sink the WT ship over the n...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

I see it like this..... Ivan wants to coach his son sometime in the future..... Nathan signs long term with Penrith for the next 5 years... Ivan (if true) signs with Penrith from 2021.... Ivan states he will honour his contract to keep coaching WTs until 2020.... He then goes to Penrith to coach Na...

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

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 and supremely powerful off the field with massive amounts of cash being tippe...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

That's how I feel as well, can't see the drama, it's not like we're the only club at the moment going through the coaching thing anyway, Penrith, Broncos, Souths and Manly......it's all currently up in the air with them too. I guess if there was no drama our CEO wouldnt be actively trying to secure...

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

It's not about Cleary "dogging it". He can be as professional as he likes and it won't matter because the players just won't respond to him in the same way as before. The players will also have a ready-made excuse for failing and that's one thing players never need. The media will be death riding t...

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

Deadset, this is giving me a headache. Let me spell it out as simply as I can I would only support someone like Hodgson or Webster if they were being used in 2019 to warm the chair for Bennett. I would not be in favour of signing them if both Maguire and Bennett say no to us and that’s all we are l...

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

Worst case scenario is if Cleary is coaching us next season. A bloke who will just be scratching his cods itching to get out of WT and back to Penrith. He won't care if we finish last next year, he won't care if players regress under him while he is here either. It will be a balls-up of monumental ...

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

No one has said they are keen for him to coach. Some of us are just keen to see the club end up a marquee coach as opposed to a rookie. With you GNR , short term hurt for long term hate and Cleary will have a reputation to protect If Cleary dogs it , 16 clubs will be watching closely .........and B...

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

Absolutely 100% spot on Nelson. He is the worst possible coach we can have for 2019. Gobsmacked that people are keen for him to coach us next year. It would be like your missus cheating on you and waiting around for a year to shack up with her new fella and you are content to let her live at your p...
