I get the feeling this is starting to happen ,like it or not the club has to put down a base ..to be frank I have had enough of the West’s / Balmain rubbish that ended 18 yrs ago
The separation of the fan base has to stop ....from day one the club has pandered to this edict.
My opinion is make the decision and the supporters that follow good the others can please themselves,this club is in no position not to move forward and to finally find a home .Build it and they will come!
Considering our reserve grade team was changed from WestsTigers to Western Suburbs Magpies only this year it seems some are all for separation of the brand.
I don’t think it really matters, canberra, Melbourne, parra don’t seem to mind... its giving our kids a lesson into history when we carry on about the old days....
Winning is probably the best way to strengthen the Brand.
I'm for a strong WestsTigers brand.
There are lots of ways to create this and strength the Brand. ATM I think we do have a strong Brand. T.V rating have been good for the WT's for years. We have a united board with good management and aren't looking like we could fold for financial reasons. The five home grounds have not been great for a strong brand.
The Bronco's (as much as I hate to say it) probably have one of the strongest Brands in the league. Mainly because they are the only team in a big Rugby League capital city and they have one home ground.
Having a solid home base with a leagues club or Head Office next to it, would be ideal. I don't mind sharing a ground with other Club's or Codes. However having a shared ground right in the middle of Parramatta when the League is looking at reducing the amount of Sydney teams doesn't seem like the ideal spot for us.
The NRL will prefer us to be playing out of the new stadium.

its good to see numbers Telly still strong this year.

My brother is a mad Parra fan. He has a 3 year old son that he is trying to convert into an Eels fan. He confessed to me on the weekend "Do you know how hard it is to make a kid like an Eel?". I hadn't really thought about that. Then I did a roar to my young nephew and for the next 5 mins he kept repeating the word Tiger.

It's the Ivan of the tiger, It's the thrill of the fight...

The cub needs to engage the supporter base in Sydney. We should be one of the strongest clubs.

I agree 100%. NRL should demand clubs field first and reserves. Fans want this but since when did the NRL give a toss about fans!!

I hate that for a lot of games that there is now only 1 game on match day.

Pretty much what needs to happen, but no one has the balls to make the call

Cleary's talk about needing one home ground is the softening up of the supporter base for the decision to be made later this year.

Several NRL teams have quite large supporter bases but unfortunately many of them are in Sydney, home to some of the most fair-weather fans you’ll ever see. We’ve certainly got a great amount and they’ll turn up if we become stable and start winning.

If a team was going to be cut you’d have to say it’s Manly. Their fans don’t travel, they’re a relatively poorer club these days and they don’t have a great interstate fan base either. Relocate them to Perth.
No thanks Just punt them.
Yeah bring back the bears in WA and drop the silver tails

Bingo!
Timing is everything too...the day after the first Leichhardt game of the year, out they come with this.
He was very concise on what he said tonite and was quick to correct them.

It is quite obvious what the plan is from here, this is just the start of the media campaign. I think we will be looking at 1-2 games at Leichhardt and Campbelltown with the rest at the WSS as early as next year.

Does it really matter where we play ??

As long as we can turn it into an absolute graveyard for every side , has a good atmosphere , easy access and great viewing for all fans and its financially viable for the WT's and its fan I can't see an issue

But then again I don't have a favourite ground either

The home ground advantage exists for a reason.

Which is probably why I said to turn it into a graveyard for every side :shock:

Getting back to the original post - the more people who watch our games then the more we can ask for sponsorship.

Leichhardt is my favourite, when there I have felt at home like no other place on this Earth,
But I agree with you completely. We need a stable consistent home ground, to play the majority of our home games at, and it doesn't have to be Leichhardt or Campbelltown, it just has to be ours.

I would prefer to return to LO and CSG for 1 or 2 games a year, but would be happy to have one main ground to base ourselves at, and I also think that is exactly what Pascoe, Go and Cleary are preparing us for.
A one eyed supporter, mostly :crazy, always :sign:
