So because they might not ever get another gig, that makes it ok?

Anyone who thinks Taylor will never get another gig is kidding themselves. He's this era's Brian Smith. Any club in need of a clean out will bring him in. Not a coach you are after to bring long term success. He's a hatchet man.
Please.

Our culture was awful under JT. He hardly cleaned the place up. He is a flog what talks a big game but delivers little.

Brian Smith is a 55% career coach who made multiple Grand Finals

JT is a 44% head coach who has never won a finals game better off suited to being a good assistant coach.

Won't be a head coach in the NRL again. Your dreaming if you think he will be.
You seem to have something personal against him, so your opinion is not exactly objective.
The stats I quoted seem to be close to the mark.

are they subjective?

Or is your opinion that he is a good hatchet man that will return as an NRL coach just as if not more subjective?
It’s an opinion. But mine is not based off personal dislike. I know you have never been a fan, but the way you are going about this is surprising.

Winning coaches dont get sacked its as simple as that. Coaches are sacked at all clubs based on performance and its no different at our club.
Do you think Potter deserved the sack? He was getting more out of a poor squad than I'd have expected... until some players put on a power play and virtually tanked. Saw it with my own eyes at Canberra Stadium and was sickened by the sight. And a weak board allowed it all to happen.
Just to keep the thread above board Potter wasn't sacked , his contract wasn't renewed

Yeah I thought he had a 3 year deal as well

His current club is 110 years old today - I bet that surprises some here who thought he would have torpedoed them by now and they would be down the gurgler.

Congrats to another working class club who survived without merging.

I am also just as happy that Magpies got another life by merging and winning a premiership and in the long term will probably be more successful than Rabbitohs due to Wests being more financial and not relying on private donations and profits.

My best mates when a teenager were a Souths supporter and the other a Dragon supporter so I will have a soft spot for them. And a girl who had my heart was a Tiger supporter. Can't I turn against my own team if Boyd played up with my then missus about 1979?

Tigers club's woes I partly blame on the casino and a cousin of mine promising the world - as well as a few bad decisions. I can't really hold it's demise against them.

I only found this one now.

https://www.theroar.com.au/2015/08/27/e ... ts-tigers/

In another pseudo-exclusive from The Roar, we can reveal that the push to oust Robbie Farah from the Wests Tigers was sparked by a player-led revolt hatched by Robbie Farah.

The Blues hooker has been sensationally instructed that he is surplus to requirements in 2016, with the club going to great lengths to confirm they aren’t joking by threatening a year in the backwaters of reserve grade.

Tigers officials cited the reasons for Farah’s dumping as salary cap constraints and restructuring and stuff, but insider reports expose his demise as being propelled by certain factions inside the playing group, most notably, Farah’s.

After a season of abominable performances from the Tigers which sees them mired in a sloppy brawl for the NRL wooden spoon, Farah had reportedly identified himself as the catalyst for the club’s poor position after losing faith in his own direction.

These rumblings have resurfaced in recent times, after supposedly being put to bed with a mediation session in June where Farah reached an uneasy truce over pizza, despite disagreeing with himself on the choice of topping.

Here the whispers ceased temporarily as he returned his attention to undermining the club’s head coach, however it all unravelled with the weekend’s prime flogging at the hands of the Sharks.

The insipid 40-18 loss was the final straw for Farah and the moment he ultimately ran out of patience with his own leadership. Sensing action was required, he took it to a vote with teammates before making an executive decision to nip the issue in the bud using familiar tactics.

What resulted was three days of behind-the-scenes whispers that grew too loud for the administration to ignore, and yesterday their hand was forced in to fabricating some BS about the salary cap, which gave the subsequent blessing to terminate the hooker’s 12-year career at the Tigers.

When questioned on whether this was a decision driven by the player group, Tigers officials categorically denied their involvement in Farah’s sacking before happily stating, “Frankly, it’s just refreshing to be sacking someone other than a coach for once.”

As league wires began to run hot, Farah called a press conference to douse the gossip with a one-man united front, fervently denying having his own blood on his hands, while restating he has a solid working relationship with himself.

“I don’t know where all of this has come from. Me and myself get along fine.

“How much more proof do you need? We live in the same building complex together. I even play myself at tennis at least once a week.

“This is all Gorden Tallis’ fault, I bet.”

Farah’s shaky reassurance flies in the face of intel received by The Roar’s moles.

An unnamed associate of Farah says he feared the worst when the Blues hooker began questioning his own performances in online forums, and then when he refused to acknowledge himself on the field at the end of a game against the Eels, the writing was on the wall.

When again pressed on Farah’s role in his axing, the club reiterated their stance:

“The fact of the matter is this; it’s a cap issue, and the Wests Tigers are in the business of paying blokes to work for anyone as long as its not the Wests Tigers.

“Robbie has a massive back-ended deal that we pledge to continue paying, just like we still are with Tim Sheens, Mick Potter and half of our 1989 grand final winning side.”

The board has employed Farah in an advisory role in the short-term to assist in finding someone suitably disruptive as his replacement.

You have let your hate for Jason Taylor critics distract you from reality.

Jason Taylor will never coach NRL again.

Absolute million to one chance.
Its an opinion!
