Worst performance since `1980

Post by Vicious » Sun 16 May, 2010 5:00 pm

That was undoubtedly the worst performace by any Wests Tigers side ever, also the worst performance by any Wests Magpies or Balmain Tigers side and I go back to about 1980. It was nothing short of disgracefull, no passion, no pride, a total disrespect of the jersey. I left 10mins after halftime and don`t regret it one little bit.
Atleast 6 players must be dropped to reserve grade as punishment otherwise they will never learn !

HAHA! Dropped from first grade?

Sheens has dropped one player from first grade in the past six years, and even he was back after a week.

What makes you think he will start now??

On a par with Magpies of 98 & 99....that really is saying something

Luckily for the players they dont have to front the fans at the club anymore

Its way below the level of the 98/99 Maggies - they didn't have the talent this team has.

Almost as bad as the loss to the Adelaide Rams whenever that was. There is something rotten in Denmark methinks. The way they played today was soul destroying for the fans.

I can go back 50 plus years and this was the most revolting effort i have seen even when the tigers got the wooden spoon those poor buggers did not have the playing roster we have today and on this diplay they would beat this mob

Agreed. the only match I (we, as a family then) left early was Wests v Easts in that semi final. today was on a par but i refused to leave early. i suffered in silence.

The Rams one was a very bad loss......but I go back to the loss against Melbourne in Melbourne - 66 to 0.

Although today was pathetic, it wasn't as bad as 66-0

the 66-0 to melbourne was back in 2001 wasnt it? (or something)
although i didnt see that game (i believe it was played on a thursday night for some reason ) i doubt the effort that night could have been any worse than todays. and the team back then had no where near the talent the current squad does.

The club had genuine excuses back then...

They don't now..
