Lead up to origin 3 and the week after (dependign on injuries and who can back up) are the perfect time to blood Liddle in 1st grade off the bench.

I just want to know the facts before i beat someones brain in.
When we were 3 from 4 a few werr hailing the selection team for doing great work. One loss and now its all down to Taylor. Funny hey?

No argument there. Ridiculous decision.
I just find it amusing that the 'selection team' do a great job when we win. Bit Taylor is a nut job if we lose.
The selection team picked a decent team on Tuesday, Ballin at hooker ET at lock, my problem is what JT did to that team when Ballin pulled out.

You having fun are you, I have not back flipped at all, you are tripping from too many drugs.
JT was just on FOX defending his decision to start Farah off the bench or not at all, he said every player in the team has competition for spots, and no matter who it is they will get selected accordingly.
I call BS JT, Farah is selected on a different criteria to every one else, otherwise Kev would have been dropped ages ago.
JT has an agenda and he is a hypocrite, I make no secret I hate the bloke and do not think he is even in the same stratosphere as an NRL coach, and the sooner he leaves the better.

Well if they approved that dumb move they can follow JT out the door too, we need smart decisions, and besides getting ET we have not had many in the last few years.

Don't understand why our Hooker combo is not Cherrington/Farah?

I am telling you because of my daughters I deal with young men who think they know everything, and at work I deal I with murderer's, rapists, child molesters and the like, so dealing with you who thinks they are so smug is a non event.

Taylor should have killed this off straight away Farah starts and we don't run with a second rower at hooker. He is enjoying publicly demoralising Farah and is unfit in my view to be a head coach.
Just shows the blokes character to be continuing with this rubbish.

I hope Farah moves on but I have grown to hate Taylor he is not only a poor coach but a petulant, vindictive child.

That was the point I was trying to make, JT went on about competition for spots and players getting left out, yet that does not happen, he is using it as an excuse to punt Farah, fair enough Farah needs to go, but the coach should be first out the door.

Comparing someone's smugness on an Internet forum for backing up an argument with that of rapists and murderers now. 851, you're obviously really annoyed, or just embarrassed that you were proven to be a hypocrite over your view on Taylor and his team selections.

100% agree. Cherrington is ten times better than Halatau, I cannot fathom why we don't play him instead. Cherrington should have been our starting hooker this year whenever Farah is injured or on SOO duty. Cherrington should also be our future hooker. It baffles me, just like letting JAC go to Melbourne baffles me. I also have no bloody idea why we bought Ballin when we had Farah, Cherrington, Halatau and Liddle.

There are some very strange and very STUPID decisions being made in our club
Tigers tragic since 1980.
