For all you pro Balmain whingers - the original agreement when the joint venture started was that Wests and Balmain would maintain a team in the highest comp under NRL. Sheens destroyed that agreement when he convinced the board that all the Wests State Cup players should be included wit h BRET to allow an easier access to NRL. When BRET ceased to exist in state cup the name changed to Wests Tigers but failed to honour the original agreement of the joint venture. This has now been rectified with Wests Magpies now having a team in the highest comp under the NRL. There is nothing stopping Balmain Tigers entering a team in the same comp.
Well your first phrase says it all ..... and division resurfaces. Not a good move imo

If you had read earlier in this thread you would know that I supported the initiative (like many Balmain supporters have likewise supported). Making divisive comments is unhelpful and unnecessary.

Don't know, seems a little odd. Will this actually benefit the NRL side in any way or will people in the region just support the ISP side and not progress further?
Probably no & no for the most part

For all you pro Balmain whingers
That’s a quick way to get a lot of people off side.

Anyway...it should be a good side. With possibility Benji, Gamble, Kev, MCK, Sue, Lawrence ect all having games for the Magpies next year.
I personally would like our Reserves to be playing for the WestsTigers.
Did I even read a single pro-Balmain whinger in this thread?
No

That will do me. I have now decided my new ISP team will be the Wyong Roos. I will probably attend the same number of their ISP games as I attended tigers this year.
In other words, don't expect to see me among the couple of hundred people you see at these games for either club.
This does nothing to strengthen the relationship with Macarthur while playing out of Lidcombe. They may as well take them to regional areas to build the brand

How would that work for training as part of the NRL Squad ?..or do you mean home games played if not before an NRL fixture..

Can I ask our Macarthur friends if the actual mascot will give you more incentive to follow a team or not?

I'm not originally from either of our founding regions so am somewhat impartial but I just can't see how having two different identities within the same club as being of any real benefit to anyone.

I totally understand that the older generation's (me included) would have some affiliation with the Magpies but if they are talking about a "pathway system" then surely attracting the younger generation towards Wests Tigers should be the way to go.
I was thinking the same thing. Lets strengthen our presence in the area by diluting our brand. Makes complete sense.

If they are really strengthening the Club’s presence in the Mac area, great but IMO its just a lame justification for a terrible business decision.

Sad to see the Club is still managed by the heart rather than the head

More importantly its factually incorrect. Sheens wanted one football team in State Cup for footballing reasons. Pretty understandable given he was head coach. It was to play under Wests Tigers brand. Magpies wanted to retain brand and refused to not field a team. So Sheens decided he would implement his football decision by only fielding NRL contracted players in the BRET squad.

That is all it ever was. A football decision about team unity.

A move to identify with the Macarthur region at the same time as they take the squad to train at the at The Kings School? That's a mixed message if i ever saw one. Hardly a consistent branding exercise.

5 years ago this thread would be 150000 pages and locked by now.

4 pages and very few snarky comments leads me to believe that either:

1/ the joint venture is being embraced by all fans
or

2/ hardcore balmain or wests fans have wandered off into the sunset




EDIT: at one point I have to put my hand up to being one of the trouble makers.

I have never understood these comments.
I am a hardcore Wests Tiger supporter and I was a hardcore Balmain supporter. Wests Tigers are a joint venture of two old hardcore clubs.

I still live in hope that Balmain will once again have a new strong leagues club at its spiritual home one day so they can once again provide strong financial support to the JV.

Trouble maker? Nope. Wander off into the sunset? Not likely

Ahwell.always someone.

I guess quibbling over terminology is better than how much white is in the jersey.

Here's hoping the leagues club gets up and running an can help support the JV.
