Re: How I fell in love with Leichhardt Oval

I too have so many memories of Leichhardt since the mid 70s. Some shaped my love of the ground, some of the tigers, some of other supporters and some of Rugby League itself. Something that has shaped me as a man was a very, very wet day in the late 70s or early 80s. Sitting near the fence and the cr...

Re: Tim Simona

He was definitely one of my favourites, but his day is done. If he has paid his penalty, that's good for him moving forward. But I don't get the mentality in sport where we have to give these guys another go, just because. For every Simona, or any other player threatening going to rugby, or retiring...

Re: Player you're most looking forward to seeing in 2019?

Jacob Liddle. I want to see the kid after and injury free pre-season really take hold of his future.

He could really explode if a few things go his way.

Re: NRL Announcement

Whatever, the penalties issued on Pascoe and Wests Tigers by Greenburg are way, way too harsh. I think the deregistration, if warranted, should have been played out behind closed doors. It has been stupid by the NRL to do it publicly (even with show cause period) as it has damaged Pascoes reputatio...

Re: NRL Announcement

Deliberate attempt to circumvent the cap, we have what we deserve. ACCIDENTAL then the penalty is excessive. I just want equality and fairness. And the thing is, Pascoe has already been penalised and his career jeopardised regardless of the outcome. This is completely unfair to ANY club and I don't ...

Re: Support Justin

Not sure how you can de-register someone and at the same time give them 30 days to show cause. The damage to his reputation already, regardless of the outcome in 30 days, especially when he was de-registered on the very same day another official was de-registerd WITH cause is offensive. Smart play w...

Re: NRL Announcement

I have absolutely no idea and I'm just guessing, but I wonder if the tigers submitted to Ayoub a letter of offer to employ Farah at retirement. For Ayoub, that is good enough to lock the tigers into an agreement without his clients signature, but to the NRL, it's a letter of offer which is probably ...

Re: Support Justin

I have emailed the CEO email and whilst I know he can't read it for the moment, I expect someone will be and the well wishes will be passed on in one way or another. And if history is an indicator, upon his return I will get a short thank you from him. He will have many to respond to, but that's how...

Re: NRL Announcement

If you don't cheat you don't get punishment. Sorry to say it but we cheated. I hope a fool like you is ready to post a retraction after the appeal. And on what basis can YOU unequivocally state that this decision by the NRL won't be overturned. "The club does not know if he is going to take it up a...

Re: NRL Announcement

I wouldn't be so quick to paint Pascoe as the innocent wronged party. Maybe the punishment is draconian but you don't get these kind of punishments for sloppy paperwork and/or misunderstandings. There must be a reasonable amount of evidence to support both the accusations and penalties. Don't think...

Re: Support Justin

I am a huge fan of Justin Pascoe and have said so many times on this forum. I think the man is a very good, shrewd, slick professional businessman. A perfect CEO and he is ours and provided direction to build this club in the last few years. His honesty and integrity and open support for the cap and...

Re: NRL Announcement

I am speechless. Without Speech. We all have our tantrums and threaten to burn jerseys and memberships but I tell you what, if the penalty stands then I am going to follow some other team and sport. The NRL has absolutely lost me and their favoritism is obvious. This is pathetic. Absolutely pathetic.

Well she has had some serious offers and is considering. Not sure it's NRL style NEWS, but will be a blow for us if she leaves.
