Many on here think Braith is a good buy, Well i disagree, Braith has not had a good season since 2010. Below are stats from season 2012.

You've got the right to an opinion Roosterman

I wonder if you will get the value for money signing MoneyBill

Probably not I say If Anasta can help Benji and Robbie make some better percentage plays than they have in the past he will pay for himself

Stats aren't everything , brains win football games more often than not ,especially the tight games

Thx Roosterman.

I seem to recall the majority of the Chicken Booster team playing pretty woefully in the past few years as well.

This year should be better as you paid overs for other teams juniors again.

I get why your singling out Braith... It still hurts, but you seriously cant judge your halves without judging for Forwards.

In 2012 Easts were the worst forward pack in the comp... No forward made over 100m per game and you conceded 11 unforced turnovers per game. After losing the battle in the middle of the park, the end result was pretty comprehensive with Easts conceding more points than Parra.

No half or 5/8 will have good stats while the pigs are constantly losing the battle in the middle!

Not sure why the heat for Roosterman, I think seeing as how he follows the Roosters he'd have a fair idea watching them closely every week. I'd say 12 months ago people would have agreed, now people have their WT's glasses on. Would be like one of us going to another teams forum and trying to prepare them for the utter failure Moltzen would be

I'm expecting him to be handy and take pressure off Robbie and Benji, not expecting him to be a world beater

I Dont hate him, I hate how his crying saying we targeted him, And as for the guy saying our whole team was woeful....True , BUT as a captain you expect ALOT more..

If you guys were bad and Robbie was making 1 run for 1m and 16 tackles you would be blowing up too, It is not acceptable.. And i hope for you guys that he was dogging it with us, Cos if that was all he had then its going to be a long season for you guys, His a year older, and Id personally would rather a second rower whose gonna make 100m a game, then Mr 1 Run.

I'm pretty sure most tigers fans would feel we don't need advice or concern from one of the rorters 97 ticketed supporters. Why would any player approaching the end of his career put in for a club that tries to buy a premiership every 2 years? He knew for a long time he wasn't going to finish his career at bondi.

To me your club is like manly or melbourne, totally immoral recruitment and blatant cheats, but with one big difference. Less people who care.

Braith won't be the best buy ever statistically, but he will put in and add a calm voice under pressure. That's all we need him for. I didn't know we signed you with him, but a cheerful tiger welcome to you.

Signing up to a forum specifically to dump on a player who just left your club shows the sort of person you are.

I'd be disgusted if anyone from this forum did the same for someone who left Tigers.

Agreed. I'm not Braith's biggest fan and I thought he was ordinary in his last couple of years at the Cocks, but I'm prepared to give him a shot to give his career a new lease on life at a new club.

Signing up to a WT forum just to hang crap on him is poor form.

The chookman brings up some pretty damming stats and in some ways I agree, we can little afford to have a player with a low work rate in our pack even if he has a great kicking game and a great football brain. Our problem in the past has always been lack of workers.

In saying that, Chookland was in turmoil, like with all other clubs he had anything to do with, Brain Smith had lost the faith of his players, so I take Chookmans stats with a grain of salt. Time will tell if Anasta will be a good buy, I never doubt his ability but can we afford a player in the backrow of his style???????

You wasted your time Roosterman. I dont care what he did for the rooters,,,, I only care about what he does for the tigers,,, Potter can make tough decisions and if that means dropping Braith then so be it.... But your stats mean nothing to me right now... Im even prepared to give Timmy Moltzen another run to redeem himself and he would have been much worse than Braith.

I remember it too, and those stats are accurate, That was the best game of the season, scoring a try and running almost 100m, But as for kicking , he gave all those duties to Pearcy, those seem right to me.

Roosterman to me just sounds like a relieved man. While i don't know what his motivation is to come on here, all the points he has made seem to be legit and he doesn't seem to be disrespecting any other members. I just think we're overly protective
