Do you really think Benji will damage his own career and new contract offers to 'get back' at Potter? Who he might not even have a problem with.

You guys surely have to know that Benji loves the club and to suggest something like that is actually disgusting.
Benji does love the club and the club and its fans still very much love him. He has given Wests Tigers supporters the best memories of their lives. Memories which they will never forget. I am sure that Benji is trying his best and does not have any bad issues with Potter. It is just that the more he keeps playing so much out of form in first grade the more attention of his loss of form he is drawing to himself.. I am just so frustrated and sad that the club has left him to play in first grade whilst he is out of form. I think he needs a week or two off football to allow him to focus back for his last games with West Tigers. I want to remember him leaving the club on a good note.

I prefer to remember Darren Willis. Not Marshall. He isn't throwing games, he is trying his guts out but this is as good as he is. Even in his alleged golden years he was very overrated. Never in my top 10 players of recent years.

After 2005 I would never ever, ever have thought that we would all be wanting Benji to leave this club so desperately just 8 years later. It's certainly not the way I had envisaged this once fan favourite superstar finish his career with us. It's so damn sad, really.
Absolutely Flippedy, who would have predicted it very, very unfortunate.

I've only read the first post, and this page but I guess others feel the same way too...as shocking as it is, I actually feel it looked like he sabotaged our game today....he's going THAT bad. THAT bad that what he does looks like he's deliberately protesting against something.

But the reality is, he's just going THAT bad.

For example, I really did not understand those 2 kicks to the sideline inside their 20 early in the game, it was farcical. Add to that those embarrassing passes and the one to Ayshford was the icing on the cake. I was actually laughing and cringing at the same time.

2014 can't come faster.

I dont think he is trying his guts out, and it pains me to say it.

At the very least he is coasting, at worse he is trying to reduce Potters credibility. He had everything he wanted, he wanted Sheens to stay and he did. He wanted Sheens to go and he did. He wanted a payrise for the next two years and he got it.

The he wanted an up front payrise for a further two years and finally someone said based on what? So he decided to leave and get his face and name splashed around as many papers as he possibly could. He doesn't run the ball and that will kill him in rugby. All Black talk is laughable.

He won't be dropped as it seems only fair that he play every game and achieve 200 games at the Tigers. I can live with that I suppose as he has been loyal to the club. But from what I saw today I for one will not say he is having a dig!

Myself and family think its quite sad actually to see this happening, we have always thought Benji was a good bloke with a heart in the right place .We will be glad when the season ends and Benji can move to the next part of his life.

Benji's pass to Ayshford was one of the funniest things I've seen on a football field. So bad, you couldn't make it up.

It is sad, as much as I've bagged Benji over the years I wanted nothing more than him to prove me wrong, nothing would of made me happier than to have to come on this forum right now and say I was wrong after all im a WT fan first why wouldnt i ?
Id rather swallow my pride and us have a good season than what its come to now, but it just went from bad to worse, he's kept so many waiting and hoping for so long but I could see long ago he was never going to be the player he has always TALKED about being, that player he thought he was capable of being but never got there, in fact never got close.
I have nothing against him personally in fact I think he's an awesome person who has done tremendous things for many causes off the field as well as the Tigers and NRL and his country, my gripe is purely football ability.
I don't think I've seen a more talented player when he's on than Benji but I also haven't seen a less consistent player either, which basically sums up the WT as a club since he's been here and I believe he's been the main reason why. Like I said the WTs come first and if we improve because Benji is no longer in our team then I'm a happy camper.

But the calls for Benji to be dropped are just stupid - you're wasting your time. It's never going to happen. Benji has been at the club for a long time and has delivered some unforgettable moments.The season is over. Let him finish his career with us on the field. I've been hating on him for the last 2 seasons, but we owe him that much.

Ayshford, sure.

And if we can, it would be great to get Brooks in.
why does benji get preferential treatment over ayshford?
sorry, but what happened in 05 shouldnt factor into team selections and building for the tigers future. best of luck to him elsewhere, but we are just hampering our own chances by persisting with him.
he isnt loyal to us, nor should we be to him.

Come off it!!! :crazy Just a ridiculous statement on every level.
He isnt playing well and that is obvious to everyone. But to suggest he is throwing games as a 'get square' with the club and even the fans? How about you replace your dummy and have a lie down? You are talking absolute crap.

Benji cant stand Potter.Benji is outta here...what better way to go than to bring Potter down too?...think about it....how else do you explain his pathetic form...
The problem with this train of thought is Benchy has been playing like this for years now, it's just hard for some to swallow!
Was he trying to bring down Sheens as well? No!

He is just not a good footballer as the press would have us believe! Not even channel 9 can hide anymore the fact that he is very average at best!

You can't polish a turd!

Normally your an idiot but that is so true.
Hahahahahaha that is one of the best things I've read on this forum. Thanks! Normally there are plenty of idiots, but some times even an idiot gets it right. :lol:
