Re: The calls. Good and bad

Would you prefer having 3 losses by 2 points or 1 blowout loss? Honestly probably the one blowout loss - then we would know it was definitely our bad form that lost us the game. Losing three close games because of ref bias, for the most part, is the worst feeling, imo. It's just plain wrong and I'm...

Re: Same old franchise different year

Another knee-jerk thread. We'll bounce back next week. Yes we are a far better team than I could of hoped for this year. Great times ahead. We were supposed to bounce back this week! I think we over-excelled in the first 5 weeks, but the signs of a slide were apparent in the second half the first t...

Re: The calls. Good and bad

I don't normally whinge about the refs but the two passes and the two speed policing of the ruck was obvious. That said if we played well enough with the ball we would have still stolen the points like we did against Melbourne. Good teams will still win against the whistle. True, good teams will wi...

Re: Our Defense Is Not as Good As It Was

Not much more to add really. The Tigers defense is not the impenetrable wall that it was at the start of the season. Both Parra and Newcastle have got on rolls through the middle and we are conceding tries far more easily. I think all the opposition sides are developing greater fluency in their att...

Re: I really think this will help

Why not! Need to do something there otherwise we will just keep losing games. It's too easy for teams to score down that side - can't believe this is still a weakness years on!

I remember when benji said that every week on 2012... “need to step up” he never did.
Yeah not keen on the "need to step up" articles surfacing again. Not just Benji, but with everyone! Memories of many bad times over the past six years. I was hoping we had moved on from this.

If Woods or Bird get picked they've lost the plot.
Agreed.
You can only hope Fittler has a bit more commonsense with selections than his predecessors, but I dunno......

Re: NSW Origin Team

So we've all had a crack at posting the NSW Origin team that we would like, but who do you think the selectors will actually pick? I'm guessing their team will be a little different from mine. Here's who I reckon they will choose: 1. Tedesco 2. Trbojevic 3. Dugan 4. Mitchell 5. Ferguson 6. Keary 7....

It looks out of place. Lol I think you're trolling. As a neutral fan you should be allowed to wear your team's jersey. My question is why would you want to?

Re: Your most unpopular opinion about league

1. Fans shouldn't be allowed to wear another teams jersey to games where that team is not playing. For example if it's Tigers v Manly, someone wearing a Parra jersey should not be allowed in. Why?

Re: Is there any ex WT's players you would take back

Only JAC for me. I can honestly say I don't regret Wests Tigers losing anyone else on that list except for him, though I did regret losing Fifita for a short while at first, as he was our only forward with grunt at the time. I certainly wouldn't want him back here now! Losing JAC though was the bigg...
