Pick our best players for this mickey mouse format?

This forum would go into meltdown.
If only half a dozen sides are serious about it, that should see us finish up, oooooo I dunno, roundabout 7th place?

Also listening to that Kiwi commentator Stephen McIvor, he pronounces ever islander name differently to what I've heard over here. We had Sauaso "Su-eh", Watson "Hell-eta", Jordan "Rarp'nar" and I can't even remember how he said Seumanufangai, except I recognised the player before the name. He pronounces these names with an expedited authority - is he legit, or is he just making these ones up?
Ive heard the same from - Im guessing polynesian commentators pronouncing polynesian names, its sometimes completely different to the aussie ( and incorrect Im guessing) interpretation we get accustomed to
It's weird though, because I remember when Ava came to grade and they made a song and dance on TV about the correct pronunciation, in typical Rabs and Gus borderline-racist way, but I would have expected after actually asking "how do you say this name" they'd be somewhere right. Because all Aussie commentators now say "seeyou-munnafanai"... and possibly that is not right.

On Griffin the coach has showed once again he has favourites and will select them over form ,Griffin created second phase play in just the limited time on the paddock but Taylor prefers probable the poorest forward in the NRL Buchanan ..Griffin could of been injured IMO Talyor will be gone mid season. The younger players seem talented enough but again the head space is just not there another coaching issue.
So, within 3 games of 18 minutes, in a competition that maybe a few teams take seriously (i.e. send a decent squad) you were able to ascertain that Jason Taylor has altered the brain chemistry of some of the Wests Tiger's younger players. Fair enough. Based on the fact that he has used the off season to study Neurochemistry to assist in his dastardly plan to destroy our club, I believe he should be sacked immediately, without delay.

Yeah.
Safer to just make up the numbers, its what we do best

So you are in favour in picking mostly our first grade side??

I may be wrong, but I am pretty sure that you would be in the minority.

Before you ask our fans, just ask the Manly fans what they think.

Should we ask Roosters fans what they think of pre season training after losing Boyd Cordner to a pec injury for 6 months

You can lose players to any sort of injury at any given time

How many Tigers players have been injured so far during the pre season ?? 3 , 4

Nothing more pathetic than not having a go

I dont give a crap if the forum melts down and i dont give a crap about being in an alleged minority (in cols brain only)

We arent good enough to pick and choose what we are going to have a go at, this soft mentality will not change the loser culture in this club, and supporting this attitude is just as defeatist - loser mentality

You could get injured in the first round or in round 25. You can't not play can you.

As I said earlier the Cowboys brought their entire FG squad bar Thurston and Scott who is still recovering from neck surgery

And brought their gun juniors as well

If its good enough for the Premiers to do it .......

As I keep saying , if you make it something that the clubs can't not resist trying to win , we will get better involvement from all sides

Which should make it a better tournament all round

Win / Win for the fans and bigger sponsorship $$$$$'s

The 9's is just about the only silverware we are a chance of winning at the moment .
Send Brooks , Moses , Tedesco and take the trophy & the prize money .
At least we'd get some positive press for once and a boost in confidence !
I agree with the majority , they live , breath and eat footy and they're payed well to play .
Resting players due to risk of injury is soft IMO .
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

Not sure if anyone watched Addo-carr's interview on the nrl site after our 3rd game. He casually mentioned that the squad went into the tournament with "no real game plan". JT also mentioned in a pre-9s presser that "like last year we didn't work too much on this". That's the most disappointing thing for me. If the coaching staff aren't motivated enough to at least work on s game plan than how can we expect the players to be pumped up about it. No wonder they always take min 1 game to get into it.

Don't get me wrong if our sole focus was to prep for the real stuff & we actually kill it this year then I couldn't care less about the 9s as I'm sure most of the forum would agree. But as some have already said I'd love to see our boys competitive in every format.

I have to agree with ink .

After much thought.......

The message it sends to the fans from the Club is we need to cotton wool players such as Tedesco , Moses , Brooks , Woods , Farah , Grant cause any risk of injuries to these players would be fundamental to our side being remotely competitive .
Like someone said during the " LIVE THREAD " over the Weekend.....you wanna charge our fans $160.00 for a 9's Jersey and send that side over ? that is Burglary .

We can say it was a Mickey Mouse Comp and all the rest :blah :blah :blah but apart from Simona , Sue , Ava , Griffin and Cherrington we were represented by a laughing stock and if any of the players are 1st Grade standard at any other Club in the NRL ? Then i'm seriously bad judge.
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

If we happen to get off to a good start, no one will remember the Nines.

Farah was in the states for the super bowl....
He wouldn't of made a difference anyway, there is no 30k a game incentive involved.

Wasn't Tedesco off for quite a few weeks two years ago due to an injured he suffered in the Nines?

Manly are paying the price for the nines now.
I said to a fellow worker and Manly supporter that they had a great 17, but if they suffered and injuries they would struggle.
It is good to spend all your cap money on a great side, but if you don't have back-up players you are Stuffed.
