Re: News re the club at Rozelle

No update from the Balmain Leagues president and chairman for over 12 months. No 2016 annual report to be found. Does anybody have any updates on the viability of the current operations and/or the sale of the land?

Re: Sub Standard Training Facilities

It was a result of the old shareholder agreement when Balmain and Western Suburbs owned 50% each. For years Balmain was financially unviable but held on for many years by borrowing from the NRL to make minimal contributions to the WT. Western Suburbs would only match Balmains contribution until the ...

Re: Magpies to be 2018 ISP team?

Lots of NRL clubs use different clubs/feeder teams in the NSW Cup; and common branding isn't an issue for them. And let's be honest , if the Wests Tigers were proposing to use Ryde Eastwood or some other club as their feeder team there would be less resistance and emotion regarding this decision. Bu...

Re: Did you start supporting the Wests Tigers before the merger or after?

I'm afraid asking this question on this forum with will give a skewed view of the average Wests Tigers fan. Weather true (or perceived) ex-Magpie supporters felt alienated on this forum in the early years and dropped off. This is actually the 4th time I've joined and it's so much better (fairer/civi...

Re: Team relocate

This thread is back from the dead!!!

However, it's timely that it's back. Because the people pushing the Perth relocation should open today's paper. After millions of dollars of investment, the Western Force rugby union team has been dumped from the top flight comp.

Re: Fitness????

Whoever was responsible for conditioning during the preseason should hang their head in shame. The last three games have shown us to run out of puff at the 30min mark, and we've dominated possession in each of those games up to that point. It stands out more than anything.

Re: 'Faceless Men'

I don't think people understand how toxic the relationship is between Go and the media. In particular there is a war raging between her and Rothfield. The media want her head and they are attacking the club viciously to get it. This whole story has been blown up disproportionately. This is not a pep...

Re: New chairperson?

I am not anti female administrators but I have to question what is it about her background that makes her the most appropriate chair for our board? There are hundreds of more experienced options so let's call this what it is; a token appointment! To date all she has managed to do is get into a blue ...

Re: Club loss of $4.2m

Having just read WAL's 2016 Annual Report I can tell you their grant to the football club was nowhere near $4.2M - it was in fact $1.4M (however they did spend another $2.7M paying for half of Balmains share so perhaps they are including this in the loss?) I'm not expecting massive improvements in t...

Re: Idris signing will hurt toothless Tigers..

If it's a slow news day the journos call one of two people, "Blocker" or "Ray Price". Both are seen as jokes and both inevitably get punted from every organisation they're associated with.

Re: Kelly Egan, spoke to 2SM Talkin' Sport on Friday, December 16.

I agree there was nothing earth shattering in what he had to say. But I do like the Pascoe/Egan team. Two experienced guys with large networks of NRL coaches, players and administrators. Let's hope Egan learned from O'Neills mistake last year.

I can cop his opinion on the Idris signing, even though I totally disagree; but his comments regarding the current management is just sour grapes and trouble making. I think the current board and management team are doing the best job we've seen in many years. Who is Roach referring to anyway? Pasco...

The media makes no attempt to report accurately. It's interesting because this article was mostly about St George Illawarra and Wests.

Re: Wests Tigers filthy ...SMH article

I seriously think the gesture by Wests to allow Balmain to retain 25% (for now) was a PR exercise. Balmain couldn't make payments for their previous loan and the Rozelle development isn't happening anytime soon (if ever) so this loan won't be any different. It's already been reported Wests are the g...
