Re: Manly drama

Mmm, DCE managed by Pacific Sports Management - owned by the Orr brothers. They also "look after" Ado Carr, Ben Barba and Alex Twal.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Shafhaussen was sentenced but the Crown appealed (and won) and his head sentence was increased. Interesting read of how a talented young bloke can go off the rails.

Re: Luke Brooks running Wests Tigers to new heights in 2018

Brooks has developed a better feel for the game. His short passes and short kicks used to be almost mechanical which meant a lot of them were overcooked and resulted in dropped balls by hole runners and dead-in-goal grubbers. The biggest changes I've seen this year are his defence, ability to look a...

Re: **Live game thread**

13+ @ $3.40 is the bet of the year. Best side we’ve put on the paddock so far, especially in attack. Bulldogs in disarray and although this sometimes helps teams get up for a game, I reckon they’re too far gone. They’ll get the spoon before Parra.

Re: Coach Cleary on NRL360 tonight 6.30pm

His answer to how he and Nathan have interacted about Nathan coming back from injury before this week’s game was classic - “I asked Nathan whether any halfback has ever made 50 tackles?” 😀 Not sure whether it’s Kosher to quote your own posts here but Ivan should have suggested Nathan ask Mitch the ...

My hacked Foxtel feed dropped out before I found out whether Mahe won the viewers’ choice. Did he?
Yes, by a whisker
Yes! Thanks, probably a function of our large supporter base.

What a class act! Doesn’t give the generic coach’s non-answers and is obviously an intelligent bloke with a dry sense of humour. He thinks before he speaks.

Do we offer plod based contracts ?
That's pretty much the Cleary strategy. Hire plods, have them plod harder than anyone else, plod for 80 minutes and plod in numbers.
LOL. You’re right - that’s why we are where we are this year

Re: G-Train says the Tigers won't make the top 8

Tigers are now @$2.25 to make the 8. Also..we are @$1.65 to miss the 8. What did we start paying out at? I'm on for plenty starting last October to make the 8 @ $5-$5.50 and some @ $12 to make the 4. With Sportsbet I think that was the top of the market. Wasn't quite ballsy enough to take the $81 t...

Re: Any bets. Lets raid the bookies

Since October every time I've had a good winning day on the horses I've put $100 on the Tigers to make the 8 and a bit on top 4. I was working on the premise that we'd probably get beaten in the first 2 rounds and our price would go out and I could top up. Things haven't quite worked out that way! I...

Tab $1.90...14.5 start
Hard to believe that with only one win against the chooks the TAB is giving the Storm that big a start. Then again we’re playing well.

Re: Live game thread: Contains spoilers

Early in the game Packer dominated - almost MOTM for me. Whoever said Lawrence didn’t put in was watching another game. He took so many dirty hitups and hit the line in attack every time - often when our gassed forwards were struggling to get back onside.Can’t remember who started the thread on “def...

Re: Ivan Cleary effect takes hold at Wests Tigers

That's a 67% win rate at an average payout above $2.50, and $2.50 equates to a bookie win confidence of 17.5% (i.e. ~50% disparity between bookie confidence and actual results). jirskyr, a price of $2.50 equates to a probability of 40%. Given that the bookie's profit is also in that price the actua...
