Re: Moses Suli

Knew it wouldn’t take long before rothefield sticks the boot in.

SINNER
WESTS Tigers paid a ridiculous $1.3 million for rookie Moses Suli before he’d even played first grade. It didn’t work out. So they release him to the Bulldogs. Was it really necessary to then tell the media that he was a poor trainer with a bad attitude to justify their recruitment blunder to fans? Poor form.

He must have fell asleep drunk before he added the paragraph questioning the Bulldogs signing him for a similar amount.

The whole suli situation is a joke. The guy was all hype. Its pretty embarrising whats transpired. To offer him that much money getting so much media attention from it to release him a season later.

I guess the jason taylor era is moving away fast and its fair to say ivan would not have signed him in the first place.

There were some really bad personality signings in the past. Lodge after requesting to fight bellamy in the car park. I mean how did we reeally think that would turn out? There was no due diligence with the suli signing which makes us look bad with all the media it created.

Hopefully the club can start running signings more professionally because the club have have made some really bad calls. Ivan has to save the club in that regard because the past were not a good enough standard.
Hindsight is a beautiful thing! :roll:

The club allowed this situation to happen. That signing was idiotic and unfair to seasoned players on less. The kid has a pathetic attitude all year long yet remains in top grade despite poor performances after his first month. He then gets injured and is mollycoddled despite not putting in during rehab. He then starts bad mouthing the joint.
Eventualy the right decision to cut him is made but you can not blame outsiders from saying its just more of the same from a perenially poorly run club.

Absolutely! Look out Ivan - 1 loss in the first 5 rounds and the knives will be out!

You can bag Suli but he was one of the best performers when on the field and he never took a backward step. But the club has made the right decision in letting him go.

They just cannot do right can they.
They were in a damned if you do damned if you don’t situation with the kid. And who knows he may have been a lot more committed to training seeing that Tim Simona wasn’t in the pre season last year.
So with all the bad views of the club and not being able to secure JAC they got stuck in a bidding war for a position they’ve been notoriously week in. They don’t sign the kid we have Chee Kam play a year in the centres and keep a spare 300 handy for whatever pops up. But they win the bid and sign him trying to get the fans on side for once for securing a kid in their system and the opinion becomes very polarising.
It’s safe to say Ivan wouldn’t have signed him in the first place at least not on that coin and the last coach we had was doing everything he could to secure his position.
But the question remains who in our administration made the signing? If it is Pascoe has some of that responsibility been afforded to Ivan. Maybe it was McDonnel before he left? Im interested to see how we handle Essan Marsters’ next contract.

But ultimately there is only one club that doesn’t have their sheet together according to BuZz and it’s getting very repetitive and in most cases unjust. And that was the point to my post.

Where does the football department fit into this decision making? Was Kelly Egan there at the point he was signed, or was Humphrey B(uckets) O'Neill running the show at that point? Not sure that the signings and the amounts of the contract were solely JT's decision to make.

I guess you didn't see the article about him having him the worst defence in the comp?

Watching some of those games on fox, he used to make a lot of metres doing the dirty work on early tackles from our own end. Masters doesn't seem to have the same impact (but is better at other things).

Gee it's easy to be a journalist in the modern day

The club doesn't come out and defend itself and they are keeping secrets

The club does come out and your sticking the boot in

Pascoe when questioned next time should come out and tell the other journos to just ask Buzz Rothfield , he is the Father , Son and Holy Ghost of the National Rugby League in his own eyes

And yet his eyes are closed when its fair Up,Up Cronulla

And anyway , the ball is now in Suli's court to show the WT's they were wrong and should of persevered or were right and he is all the club said and more

Yeah, WT have money back in the coffers and it whilst it is already the correct decision in relation to conduct, it may end up being a great move if he doesn't step up again. Either way, he wasn't putting in at Concord of late and nobody is disputing that as fact.

He is an idiot. He bags wests for the so called outing of Suli and right next to this crap, he bags Meninga for not outing the players involved in the fight in the Aussie camp.
