off field decisions shouldn't be the ones making headlines.
Which brings me back to my point. Moltzen played well and was applauded in the media.

Yet, the silence on this forum was deafening.
Maybe its superstition, like not changing undies during a winning streak.

people would find it hard to cheer this guy and i dont have any problems with that. it's just seeing that this topic has 3 pages which i dont like. i dont wanna tell others to build a bridge and get over it.

just put this performance into moltzen's positive column if you think he played well...
They can't cheer for him because......

Thats probably because some people what he did, the way he acted and the way he brought crap on this club during the off season will never be forgotten.
When a man runs, cowers, hides and doesnt face up to his responsibilities, no amount of anything else will redeem himself - he needs to deal with his unfinished business that dragged the club through the sewer. Only then might some see him as a man - hard to respect right now - despite any amount of good footy being played

Rip in.
Our club is just as responsible for that debacle. It was our club who didn't release him, it was our club that hedged its bets until the last moment then decided to allow/enforce Moltzens contract.

Moltzens contract with Dragons becomes legitimate if Tigers grants the release.
When the dragons came out last year and announced the signing on the eve of our game, Humphreys said that we have not released Tim... I don't believe that there was a back flip from that position... More fool the dragons for not chasing up on it until too late in the season...

We sat on the release. Dragons/Tauber and even Moltzen thought he was moving there for 2012. When it suited us and T Moltzen we all just said "nope, contract still stands".

It was unethical conduct and made the entire club look bad. I don't ever want Wests Tigers to pull this sort of crap again.

If Lui hadn't bought a case of vodka cruisers, Moltzen would be at Kogarah. He'd be hating it to.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

This. If Moltzen still wanted out, he'd have had the release granted. I can't see WT keeping a player against his will.
He never wanted to leave in the first place!

You'd think we would all be a supporter of a guy who plays for our club assuming he is playing well. I think he is playing well. Admittedly he hasn't had a great season but then again he isn't on his own there.

Funny how Moltzen cops it from his own teams supporters for staying at a club he didn't want to leave when guys like Luke Lewis and Greg Inglis who did the same (if not worse in Inglis case - parading around in a Broncos jumper then disappearing) are treated entirely differently.
Never heard anybody bagging Lewis for dudding Souths when we wanted him.
Everybody says they'd have Inglis in a heartbeat but don't care what he did to Brisbane.
Those guys are more experienced and on a lot more money than Moltzen .
If you can't see Moltzen was no more than a pawn in the fight between the management of our club and the Dragons you need to wake up.

The whole ugly and unpleasant scenario has really sapped a lot of enthusiasm and passion for the club from me.
A bad bad period.

And rothfield was at it again in todays tele calling him a turncoat. But its ok when the sharks signed a turncoat. He come out and said the signing of Lewis would mean the sharks could win the comp in 2013 by signing the turncoat. When he writes about Inglis, Lewis or Steve Turner he doesnt mention the word turncoat. God this guy pisses me of.

Anyway well done Moltz. Good luck for the rest of the year and congrats on a new contract with the tigers.

This makes me angry because 1. Moltzen isn't a specialist fullback, in fact he trained at halfback all offseason. And even if he did train at FB it still isn't his preferred position so therefore 2. It hasn't really cost them dearly, he hasn't been in form this season and I couldn't imagine he would have won too many games for the dragons. They're slump is their fault not because they didn't sign a player.
