What is Potter to do?

Post by Tiger_heart » Sat 18 May, 2013 3:38 pm

A. Does he give up the ghost for this year and blood as many players as possible with a view to clean the joint next year?
B. Try to make the 8 by hook or by crook - after all, with the players he has missing, making the 8 would be a great achievement, so use experience ahead of youth
C. Play a mix of youth and experience, he can always blame the results on the squad he has inherited, regardless of where we finish outside of the 8's

In any case, including above, I feel for him - there is no silver bullet.

What would you do?

You forgot Option D: Resign from the club together with defence coach Simmons before they cause any more damage to the club.

In his favour he's basically coaching for free.
We are already paying another coach top $$$to do nothing, so that at least should buy Potsy some time

He has the cap and contrectual restraints holding him to an extent....he needs to continue to be strong, drop underperforming players (Blair should be in reggies next week)

We wont make the eight.....he needs results for player confidence....form should be his priority....he's blooded plenty already 1/3 the way thru....there'll be plenty more chances for him to do this without it being a priority

I'd be surprised, financial constraints, having two shafted coaches on the books (Sheens and Potter), and the quality of coach we could attract given our current position. Potter is safe, this year at least

If Potter were let go we would be stuck with boys club mentor worthless [automatically edited] Georgalis.

What a cluster [automatically edited] of a club admin we are.

I wish the NRL would come in and force a re-structure to allow the license to continue

he needs to earn the respect of the players first.

the players need to do what he tells them to do rather than carry on their own BS.

They have the right to tell Wests Tigers to re-structure the entire structure and form a new entity free of the JV agreement and the board.

They can force it by pulling their NRL license if they don't.

That is what it will take because these parasites are dug into WT deeper then a white tick

Oh cool, wasnt sure how or if the NRL would actually do that. Seems legit though, should we try to make change happen as supporters then? If we got a few hundred emails going to the NRL about making us have an independant board it could work well!

Why would Potter go? He hasn't had a chance to do anything yet.This man does not walk away from a challenge, he coached a bankrupt team for free! He can fix this but it will take time.

Funny how the same individuals that wanted Sheens gone are now hollering to sack his replacement after not even three months.....no wonder this club is a basket case!

There is a provision that all licenses are subject to many conditions. One of those is competent governance. That is the in point

well, one thing i do commend potter on is not losing his cool like a lot of under pressure coaches do. i think he should just be patient and not go crazy blooding younger guys, but to build on the experience of those he has already brought in, while maintaining a good mix of youth and experience when he gets players back.

in my mind it is the best way to prepare for 2014.

also, i have to say that it seems all of the tigers cap is spent on farah, marshall and blair, with only farah worth it.

you just have to stay cool i guess?
