Cleary said it best. We pay our money, we're entitled to boo whoever we want.
Yep, don't know why Marina thinks she can tell paying members and fans what to do.
Yep pretty much , she obviously thinks it's quite ok for 2 players not to respond to a deadline and have our CEO telling fans that we heard no response from the players with deadline .

Go away Marina
Yeah, look I've never booed a player under those circumstances, but people pay their money to watch the team play and they pay money to be a member of the club. Fact is, whether Woods or Tedesco have made a decision or not is completely irrelevant now after they gave the club a back hander by completely ignoring the deadline on their contract. If they were thinking about staying they would have sought an extension, or explained their reasoning behind wanting more time to think, but nope, they spat in the clubs face on this one and that's what hurts fans the most I suspect. The club wants a bit of clarity to plan for the future and these guys said screw that.

If they didn't like him being booed then maybe they shouldn't have disclosed that he pretty much spat in their face by not even communicating with them of his intentions, No supporter with half a brain is going to want to support him after that.

Fyi, he copped a massive boo when he took the first hit up of the match too.

I haven't said a thing negative about Go or the clubs management but Go gets this completely wrong. As a fan I will boo Wood$ at any and every opportunity,

He has acted like scum and will be treated like scum.

APRIL 23 2017 - 8:56PM
The cheek of it: Wests Tigers skipper Aaron Woods forced to endure boos of his own fans

Andrew Webster - SMH

For the past seven seasons, Aaron Woods has busted his arse for the Wests Tigers. He's also put a tattoo on it. The "2040" emblazoned across one cheek represents the postcode of Leichhardt, the inner-city suburb where he grew up and the suburb that is partly represented by this embattled yet still fiercely proud rugby league club.

He never entertained the notion of playing for any other team, carting the ball up and making tackles for any other area. When Woods' image and name was flashed on the big screen at ANZ Stadium prior to Sunday's clash with the Bulldogs — the club he is supposedly headed to next season — the Tigers fans booed.

Consider that: they booed their own captain as he was warming up on the field. Not pretty.

In this current frenzy of player transfers, separating reality from paper talk is almost impossible. Both Woods and the Bulldogs deny any contract has been signed, but a move to Belmore — postcode 2192 — appears likely.

The Tigers won 18-12 but Woods did not front the post-match media conference with coach Ivan Cleary.

"I've given Aaron a day off today," Cleary said before a question was asked. "To his credit, he's fronted the whole time. He showed out there where his whole focus is. We're not going to talk about recruitment either, boys …"

There was an uncomfortable silence. "That it?" Cleary laughed, before adding of Woods: "He was outstanding. There's a lot of distractions, obviously. But I could see at yesterday's training session that they were really focused and determined."

Asked what he thought of the Tigers' faithful booing the captain, Cleary said: "Fans pay their money. they can do whatever they want."

Woods has become the latest punching bag for frustrated Tigers fans, but the mere fact he's prepared to leave the club he's followed since growing up in an apartment above a newsagent on Norton Street exposes the cancer that's stricken the club.

For how much longer will the Tigers board and management blame others for what's happened in the past year?

They stuffed up the Robbie Farah situation. They stuffed up the sacking of Jason Taylor after just three rounds. They stuffed up the re-signing of their three best players — Woods, Roosters-bound James Tedesco and Mitchell Moses — who are all local juniors.

Now? Now, there's not much left to stuff up. Tigers fans have savaged Woods and even his wife, Sarah, on social media in the past few days, but they should consider he is leaving for less money than he could have secured if he stayed.

If the current malaise was weighing heavily on him, it wasn't reflected in his performance, which was typically tradesman-like as the Tigers searched for the tonic of a victory. He played out the first half without a break, churning through 131 metres (finishing with 225m for the game) as the Tigers took a 10-6 lead at the break.

The Dogs scored early into the second half with winger Kerrod Holland scoring at the end of a 12-pass movement to level the scores. A Holland penalty in the 55th minute edged them ahead.

Woods came back on with 15 minutes remaining and the turning point came sooner after. Moses levelled with a penalty goal after Bulldogs centre Branko Lee was pinged and unfairly sin-binned for taking out Chris Lawrence as he hunted down a kick into the in-goal. It turned the match, as a sin-binning so late in the match often does.

With four minutes remaining, Kevin Naiqama scored and the Tigers celebrated like they'd won the grand final. It came from a deflected Luke Brooks kick. Maybe they signed the right player after all.

The win could not have come at a better time but the best part is the saga that's engulfed their club is slowly abating.

"That's not the reason why they won," Bulldogs coach Des Hasler said when asked if the opposition's off-field issues had any bearing on the result.

The heat is shifting to the Bulldogs, who are particularly edgy about speculation concerning which players will need to be moved to accommodate Woods and potentially Kieran Foran, who wants to rejoin Hasler – his former Manly coach – next season.

Each Tuesday night, Woods and Bulldogs captain James Graham appear together on NRL 360 on Fox Sports. The running joke in the green room for the past two weeks is the pair should swap their club polo shirts when they go on air.

There's been plenty of talk that Graham — whose contract goes out to a whopping $1 million next year — might be shuffled out of Belmore and possibly to the Tigers.

That now appears unlikely. Graham won't be going anywhere, not least because Hasler has built a club and an attitude around the Englishman and he doesn't want to let that go.

The Tigers could've had that with Woods. He was the perfect man of the job. It's written all over him. Including his arse.

Same idiot who accused Marshall of being sexist without a shred of evidence. The only cancer is Webster himself.

Woods absolute awesone display so you knockers can all go stick it where the sun dont shine.
I havent been an overboard knocker, but I thought he had an average game. When paired up with Ava, you will notice Ava ran at Graham doing the dirty work keeping the pigs around the ruck, and Woods ran wider at Tolman... like every set. I dont think he was amazing at all, he kinda bludged letting Ava do the tough stuff.
218 metres three or four players on him every tackle is not bludging . Ava played well too.
Woods has had shreds torn off him all week his commitment questioned he had a great game for us to day and represented the jersey in the best way possible - booed and all.
It's funny , despite everything that's gone on I've been defending Woods & his stats to Bulldogs fans this week who haven't been happy about him going there .

About a year ago I read a quote from Phil Gould that was ...

"Forwards win games , backs decide by how many"

And it sums up Rugby League in a nutshell .

Without Woods 218m today we don't win . The rest of our forwards barely make 100 each week . Ivan needs to sign 2-3 guys to provide the platform that Woods provides .

Go saying fans should not boo just demonstrates again her lack of football background and understanding. She seems more interested in her own media profile than she does about the club. Which other board leader gives all the players a hug after the game.
At a minimum she should shuffle into the background and let Pascoe and Cleary be the the public face of the club.

He was giving to the club on tv today, Brent Read was trying to call him on it and back the clubs stance, but he kept talking over him, came across as a real knob.
