It wasnt a $900k performance.
And there in lies the problem, he thinks he is worth more than the club value him at.
Thinks he is worth more?

He took LESS money to leave the club and go to Canterbury. Teddy took LESS money to leave the club and go to the Roosters. Moses took LESS money to leave the club and go to Parra.

A large majority of the people on here need to stop just copping the pure BS that Pascoe is dishing up for us at the moment - our three best players, all products of our junior system who have mates at the club and love the Tigers.

Why do they take LESS money to leave the club? What kind of club have our current management made us when our three best players all take LESS money to leave?

This whole situation has been so naively and disgracefully managed by our executive staff and board that we have enhanced our reputation as the joke of the competition. Other clubs laugh at Pascoe & Go and how they are running our club - how is this good?

We've now got a coach who knows what he's doing with close to a clean slate (as terrible as it is to lose our only recent State of Origin players) but we're being held back by the people in charge. Quality players won't want to play for our club, or if they do it will be for MASSIVE overs. Something needs to happen before we are left in an unrecoverable tailspin.
Board appointed Cleary.
Nearly 3-0.

Plenty of people I know who don't follow us say to me finally you've got administration who got a good coach and are heading in the right direction.
They say hearing Elias in the media has made them realize which board members stuffed everything up.

The Elias bluff has failed
Were winning and moving on........without him on the bus
Anyone who has ever heard or seen elias knows he just talks to hear himself speak

Very insulting comment Hobbo. She's an astute businesswoman in her own right, well before she came to this club. If you don't like the way she has handled the job here that's fine then criticise her all you like, but there is no need for sexist crap like that.
She hasn't got a clue about Footy and that's what counts .
She didn't even know who Laurie Daley was

Don't you like baking mate ?
Flip , she may be an astute business woman in her world, but she has no idea of running a Rugby League club and as Chairwoman of this club is responsible for all the garbage that has occurred here under her charge. She needs to resign and get out
None of you even know that, you are being foolish GCT and hobbo. Purely foolish and you are letting the fact that she is a woman cloud your judgement.

This has been asked many times - provide an example of how she has failed in her job as chairperson. Specifically, find an example, what it was that went wrong and how she specifically was responsible for it in her role as chairperson.



Can you even honestly tell me what Marina Go's role is? Describe her role to us.
Indeed, many Chairs don't even vote unless the Board is evenly divided on an issue and then they have the casting vote. To blame Go for every ill affecting the club is rediculous.
From all reports, Wests Ashfield is a well run club and they now have the majority vote on the Board of the Wests Tigers. I would be confident that the Board of our club is now in good shape and making decisions that are in the best interests of the club. (Which has obviously not have been the case in the past).
Go is the figurehead of that Board and probably has significant input into the business plan going forward. You don't necessarily need every member of the Board of a Rugby League club to be experts on footy. You need a balance across a whole range of skills.
I have to say that I have no idea if she makes a good Chairperson or not. However, if the Board feels she is not, then I would expect that they would have the constitutional power to remove her.

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.
Disagree , at a minimum she should quit and take up baking or something similar .
If she can cook up a Storm for us no complaints, better than all the guys

Wests Tigers chair Marina Go says it was disrespectful of fans to boo Aaron Woods

Wests Tigers chairwoman Marina Go has pleaded with club fans not to disrespect the likely departing players after skipper Aaron Woods was booed by his own fans on Sunday.

The pre-game team announcement saw a number of fans turn on the Tigers captain, venting their frustration over his decision not to take up the club's offer before last Friday's deadline.

"They shouldn't be booing our players," Go said. "If these guys choose to leave, our fans shouldn't be disrespecting them like that. I don't think they should have booed them."

Woods, who was awarded the ANZAC medal for man of the match, was given permission by coach Ivan Cleary not to front the post-match press conference.

However, he did speak to several radio and television networks on field after the game, admitting he wasn't fazed by the booing from the fans.

"It's sort of footy. The thing is I haven't signed or agreed to anything," Woods said. "It's all speculation at the moment. They were all right during the game. We have the best fans – they are just passionate. Just keep coming, we will keep turning up all year ... we will keep ripping in."

Woods was heavily criticised for meeting up with Canterbury players in the lead-up to the game against the Bulldogs.

He is, however, close friends with David Klemmer and Josh Reynolds, regularly catching up with players he has represented his state with in the past.

"I can't even go to a local coffee shop and bring one of my best mates some baby gear because he had a baby last week," Woods said. "The timing wasn't perfect but it is just rubbish. Klem is one of my best mates, I am a groomsman at his wedding. Grubby [Reynolds] is a family friend of my wife as well. It's a bit disappointing the way people look at things but it is what it is in this day and age.

"It's good to just get the win. It's been a big couple of weeks but the boys keep ripping in at training. To get that win is good for the spirits."

It's been an emotionally draining season for Woods, struggling to deal with the burden of seemingly never-ending contract negotiations. While he insists he hasn't agreed or signed a contract, it seems a foregone conclusion that he will end up at the Bulldogs next year.

"It's been a bit tough. I tried to not read in the media as much as I can and focus on the game ahead," he said. "It's probably going to continue for a few weeks and I just have to get through it. We haven't made a decision on our future yet. The media made it for me without us confirming it."

Perhaps Marina would care to follow him to the Bulldogs .... I doubt many would care.

Well there are plenty of WTs fans share her opinion, I think she's entitled to an opinion like everyone else.

Just be like all the other nameless chairs, do more say less

Well you should start preparing yourself to be frustrated with the response you get to that...
Who knows, almost falling asleep in important interviews surely isn't one of them I'm sure, but she does that well
Jirskyr, you may be pretty good with numbers, but you are way off in mind reading, so you too could be classed as foolish in trying to do that.
I couldn't care less if Go is a woman or a Himalayan Mountain Goat. If she had any idea on how to run a Club. We've lurched from disaster to disaster while she's been here , and as the head of the board she's responsible. .i couldn't care what her day to day duties are. But in any organisation that has sunk as low as this one had , the head of that organisation would be extremely lucky to survive.
But if you are happy with her and her bumbling at interviews and lack of leadership. That's Cool

But what did you honestly want her to say (aside from nothing)?

"Yes, boo that traitorous treacherous lecherous soon to be dog"

He is still currently an employee and he needs to perform at his best, which means he needs to think everyone at the company he works for is on his side, no matter what they may privately think.

Who knows, maybe she also enjoyed the boo haa haa, but she can never say that in public.
Tigers for 2022!

I thought Ivan Clearys comments were more in touch with reality ..... members pay their money they can do what they want. Marina dictating to paying members doesn't wash ...

She's just saying the responsible thing for the corporate image of the club. No sponsor is going to appreciate a club actively turning on its own. Plenty of people even on here don't condone the booing and I'm sure there are parents that think it sets a bad example for the kids. I agree with what Cleary said about it - people can do what they want. Whatever she may actually think about it she doesn't have the luxury of saying that, she has to say whatever she thinks will protect the corporate image.

A couple of points:-

1. I have had no issues with Go but she is starting to be annoying. Her job is as chair of the board. She shouldn't be constantly making herself a spectacle in the media.
2. No one who is a fan of this club should be doing anything other than booing Mos$e$, Wood$ and Tede$co. These guys are absolute gutter scum. They have shafted us up the backsides and anyone who enjoys that is a fool.

i don't believe in calling paying fans disgraceful who simply voiced their opinions.
that is all they did.

It's disrespectful not to boo and call them names and basically go scorched earth on them. That is disrespectful.

It's hardly an outrageous opinion to ask fans not to boo our players, regardless of the circumstances
Shows unity to me
Much ado about nothing really
Fans getting things off their chest... Team keeps winning I guarantee the boos will disappear
