Forum to close for Balmain fans

Unread post by Kul » Fri 02 Sep, 2016 12:11 pm

With the performance of the servers considered, the moderators have decided to block access to WestsTigersForum.com for anyone who was a Balmain fan.

"Let's be clear, we arnt playing favourites here, we've just made an honest assessment of where the forum is going and after a lot of deliberation, the decision was made that former Balmain fans had nothing to offer this community anymore." said Kul, Administrator of WestsTigersForum.com

The decision was strongly applauded by Wests Tigers board member Mike Bailey, who suggested that anyone who disagrees should appreciate that the long term future is more important than loyalty.

"It's totally acceptable to cut off fans, they don't mean much these days and who gives a rats arse if they fork out their own cash in support of a cause. We have the perfect example in Robbie Farrah, who's loyalty is as disposable as my credibility as a board member."

The decision, announced this morning, means that any Wests Tigers fan who has Balmain roots will be barred from accessing WestsTigersForum.com from midnight 2 September.

"We've made the decision to forget everything that these fans have given to and for the club," said Kul.

"Instead, look at this amazing new feature that we are installing, where buttons flash when you click them! The future of WestsTigersForum.com is secured with advancements like these which will bring thousands of new members to the site!"

*satire.

Totally agree Kul, I mean really do we need those pesky Balmain fans using up valuable bandwidth that could be afforded to Wests fans, and really what has the Balmain side contributed to the JV recently, I mean how long since they even provided a better than Reggies quality player to the ranks, and the fans, don’t get me started on them but let’s just say they have never really contributed anything constructive to the forum so yep, good call. ;)

I look forward to the angry replies from people who have commented before reading the entire post or have missed the joke.

Is Robbie's café only serving Tigers club fans?

No problem Kul.

But as a former Balmain supporter, i believe i should be allowed to stay with consideration to the following:

I cant find any other forum who will take me.

Even though the forum is going in a different direction, i need 23 more posts to reach 1200 posts and that is my right as a one forum poster, even if it is not the forums plans.

I want a lump sum termination payment.

Im not going to say or do anything stupid, because i know thats what they're trying to get me to do, and I'm smarter than that.
