I disagree.
As Ivan said it was a throwaway line based on the perceived lack of commitment from our current squad and probably summed up how everyone felt at the time. Players that had committed, administration and fans alike.
Having it as our promotional sloggon for this year's membership drive suits the adjenda and much better placed than rising up.
Once we are confident the team and fans have all caught the bus then we can look to another catch phrase.
For now it was just what we needed to unify everyone ascociated with Wests Tigers.

Interesting the article states we have enough money for 2 more rostered players when it's been widely publicized we have filled 29 out of 30 spots.
I'm sure we are not going to throw a million dollars at our last signing considering we may be making a mid year signing which would be at least 50% less that what you would pay in November.
Maybe Grant has jumped on the Greater Western Buss.
Sounds like someone's opal card has expired.
Maybe they wanted to be in a 5 year plan.

It's pretty much the same as the "Trust the process" slogan for the 76ers.

Have absolutely no problem with the current three word slogan 'on the bus' as it is an organic fit and those it was referring to that chose not to get onboard, certainly did not unite, commit or achieve much for WT.

has anyone heard anything concrete about grant going back to the panthers, a friend said yesterday it was a done deal.
Surely we would not release without a replacement?
That explains why Pascoe said recently, after we signed Pinet, there are 2 more spots left on the bus...

There is an article just posted on the Telecrap website "How Tigers changed their strips"
Can someone upload it here?

HERE is the proof a Tiger really can changes its stripes.

Of the 35 players posing up in this Wests Tigers team photo just three years ago, only five — Luke Brooks, David Nofoaluma, Chris Lawrence, Kevin Naiqama and Sauaso Sue — remain at the joint venture.

The giant black, white and gold broom went right through Concord with the club’s biggest names moved along, including Robbie Farah to South Sydney, Aaron Woods to Canterbury, James Tedesco to the Sydney Roosters, Mitchell Moses and Nathan Brown to Parramatta and Marty Taupau to Manly.

The likes of Pat Richards, Dene Halatau and Tim Moltzen retired, Matt Lodge landed in hot water in New York before resurrecting his career in Brisbane, Tim Simona was banned for gambling and ripping off a charity, Keith Galloway and several others joined the Super League in England while a few others are now happy to run around playing park footy.
Tigers officials were always aware such a radical makeover would be painful but needed as they searched for long overdue success.

Manly had a roster overhaul in 2016 and returned to the finals this season.

Sue, who has not played finals football since he joined the Tigers six years ago, said it had taken some getting used to with so many new faces.

But he did not expect Ivan Cleary’s shake-up to take long to reap results, revealing how quickly new recruit Josh Reynolds and halfback Brooks had gelled on the training paddock.

“We’ve done a bit of ball movement already and Brooksy and Reynolds were straight into their shapes,’’ Sue told The Daily Telegraph.
“Josh Reynolds is such a good bloke. He’s been a joker at training, he’s been open and encouraging when we’re doing our fitness.

“He seems a good leader. I’m still waiting to see how he got his nickname ‘Grub’.

“There have been a lot of changes in recent years, in the coaching staff as well.

“It’s good getting to know everyone at training.

“We’ve got the talent, the experience with guys who have played finals footy, so hopefully they bring that experience to the club and share the love.’’

Reynolds, Chris McQueen, Ben Matulino, Russell Packer and Taane Milne are among the new Tigers recruits, while Benji Marshall also returns next week after leaving the club at the end of 2013, the season Sue debuted.
Now Sue has set himself the short-term goal of securing the one position and being in the starting side.

The 25-year-old was married in the off-season, which was the reason he told Samoan coach Matt Parish he would be unavailable for the World Cup.

Sue said that in the tournament his countrymen “had not played to their full potential, and they looked flat’’.

Off contract at the end of next year, Sue does not want to join the recent exodus, declaring: “I’m on the bus, 100 per cent.

“I’d love to be a one-club player. I just have to let my footy do the talking.’’

Slogans sound good at first to make a point, but sound a bit Wanky when used over and over.
They mean nothing when the real stuff starts
After all, anyone can get on a bus,
But it means bugger all if the players arent better than the opposition , or just stay on the bus during games

Which Salary Cap were they going to use..

Would have Thompson in a heartbeat but I think he'll stay at the Red V..
Ivan's Laws

1. You are either on the Bus or you are off..
2. The Star of the Team is the Team
3. Be the player your teammates want to play with..

There were articles posted around January of him being quoted as saying he hoped he could work something out with us.

Tedesco strung the club along all of last year till he confirmed he wanted to be a chook.
