It's OK LCA n Kafta plenty of time to renew...
Never will while JT is in charge, enjoy your complimentary wooden spoon.
Not having a go at you Kafta, it's obviously your choice whether to be a member or not, but how long does this continue? If we're playing in the grand final in 3 years time, are people still going to be hating on Taylor if he's at the helm?
Of course they will. Pride is difficult to swallow. Take what's happened this year for example. We came 9th and people are still taking shots at him saying that he's going to take us to the wooden spoon. It's not objective. People want to believe so badly that he's done a worse job than he actually has done that they have actually convinced themselves that he has.

Is it restricted to buying membership only?
Will you attend games of your team coach by the bloke you hate, cheer on the the team coached by the bloke you hate?
Buy merchandise?

I have no issue if people don't like the coach, each to their own. It's when they are rooting for him to be sacked that i do take issue with it. The only way he's going to get sacked is say if after round 12 we've only won 2 or 3 games, which would mean another season down the drain. To prefer that over swallowing your pride and being happy that the club is making steady progress year after year is sad.

Fair enough, but for mine that stance would only be fair if one thought the majority of the changes and decisions of the club of late were below par, or more so, worse than the time you were a member. That would be a hard case to prosecute in regard to this club, even allowing for the decision by Pascoe to temporarily backtrack on the Farah position which added another year of turmoil.

Don't like the coach, well I don't particularly like him either, but he is just part of the process of change, and change that very few would argue was not necessary. Taylor has done the hard yards with a cheque book in which the butts were mostly already written and too high for contracts that were too long.

Once again, fair enough, he knew most of that when he arrived or signed up for the challenge. Since then he has challenged the culture and playing style, whilst also the patience of many of us which was worn very thin at times.

This coming season begins with a playing squad and coaching structure that I believe is as much as, or close to his choice that Taylor had expected at this point. As such it is time to deliver and doubt you would get anyone debating that.

Even if you still don't like him, get out and support him, just like those of us that couldn't wait until Farah was gone, yet never booed him and applauded his efforts when in our colours. It works both ways.

I can't stand the coach and honestly believe he has been a hindrance to the development of the team. However there is no way that his tenure at the club for however long it lasts will effect my level of support. Equally I refuse to blindly support everything he says and does because he wears the "coaches hat" and quite frankly get over those who challenge my loyalty to the team when I question or criticize some of his actions and decisions.
When he delivers then I will be happy to eat humble pie.

Quite a bit of distain regarding JT in this thread that is about membership....if you are a loyal supporter and fan of the WTs then you should know you must take the good with the bad..its life..not everything regarding the club will be favourably looked upon by us the members and fans,however the Club makes decisions on our behalf and we have to accept those decisions and let the people employed to do them get it done...IT will not always be right,but we must let them do their job...the old saying....


WHAT IS POPULAR IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT........WHAT IS RIGHT IS NOT ALWAYS POPULAR.... :D
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

The bottom line a lot of people are putting their hard earned cash behind the WestsTigers for next season without being put off by who is coaching our team or anything else...and that is fantastic

Anyway I guess there are plenty of people out their who think we are heading in the right direction

Milky I'm 34 years old, married and renting in the inner west keeps me broke.

If I can offer you any advice from my 21 year old self it would be to find a group of backpackers and get on the ling island ice teas at the shark bar. See where the evening takes you and if you can remember it.

Here's some more (potentially unwanted) advice for you Milky. Have a bit of fun, then save yer cash, complete your degree & go work/live in London for a few years. Plenty of $/fun to be had over there!

My daughter has been teaching in London for 5 years, hasn't got a penny to her name.
She's been to every country that you could imagine, has a life time of memories.
London is a very expensive city to live in, the plus side it is so close to everywhere.

Some more unwanted advise; Went out on the grog with a friend of mine, he went to his chest of draws there were about 100 unopened pay packets (yes I'm showing my age) he said that was his first truck. He now owns a trucking company worth millions.

Either way enjoy yourself you only get 1 ride on the merry go round of life.
For some people that can be very short.
