Embarrassing.
Why
Because this isn't under 7's?
What does that even mean???

There really are some whack jobs on this forum. Nothing the club does is correct. Did you not read the example set by the Melbourne Storm??

Bagging Cleary for not naming one Captain is really funny. Seeing as how most of you bagged the last two captains unmercifully (Farah and Woods). You now have multiple choice.

:blah :blah :blah :blah :blah
Farah was just a whinging [automatically edited]
Woods didn't have the metal to skipper a team

What do you even mean? I don’t say nothing the club does is correct, that’s your presumption. I will criticise the club when they deserve it though. Nothing wrong with that. And I really don’t care about the Storm. Do they 5 captains?

I don't have a problem with it. To hell with tradition - it's never gotten us anywhere!

Don't worry about it, someone will emerge as more worthy than the others.

Maybe they will engage members through and allow them to vote one captain at a time

Just sounds like over-kill and over-complicating things to me. It will be interesting to see how it translates on the field.

I just hope having 5 captains doesn't end up like having no captain.
Hopefully they don't just look around not knowing who's supposed to be doing what.

Can’t see the problem with this.
I quite like it and they’re not all going to be on the field at the same time.
Someone will stand out by their actions by seasons end and will be the Captain going forward.

Please note that Ivan did not call them 'Captains'. He used the term 'Leaders'. Two very different concepts.

Really who cares who the captain is? Or captains I should say. Side issue of little importance I say.

I actually think it is a decent idea Lawrence was the choice of many on here, but to be honest he is not even guaranteed to be in the 17 each week let alone starting.
Personally i would have made Lawrence Club captain and Taylor/Reynolds co captains with Taylor doing the talking to the refs

Who would have though
I think it's a great Idea
It shares the respocibility among 5 of our best and experienced players
They all bring their own traits which we would all love rolled into one superstar player
Well we don't have a superstar
This is shared responcibility and takes the pressure off that one player
When we begin to become the Wests Tigers team we all want then we can look at a sole captain
Look at the number of great players in recent times who have failed as a captain at other club's and the team's have suffered
M Moylan
S Johnson
R Tuiavsa sheck
Great players we would all agree but appointing them as sole captain has affected their game and the clubs performances
Share the love I reckon
I would imagine he who stands out will eventually become captain
This may make the boys try that little bit harder to leed by example
All 5 of them
Can only be good for us
In Ivan I trust

5 Co-Captains?

That's just embarrassing!
How ? Or Why ?

Its not like Captains make that many decisions in a club but they have a lot of jobs. Ive never understood 1 captain in a professional club

I know you like to drink the WT cool-aid but even you must understand why one leader is important in a team sport right?A bus has one driver. Not only do we now need all these new players to gel but we are relying on all 5 skippers to be on the same page??? just stupid.

I was worried when i saw the team list for the trial and it smacked me in the face of how lacking Wests are in many areas. This now has added to my worries. Its embarrassing and completely out of sinc in what we are told that no one player is bigger than the club. The only possible reason to have 5 captains would be to appease someone who feels they should have it. luckily the chances of finals are slim so we wont have to have the embarrassment of 5 WT in the captains of finals team photo.
