Re: NRL Announcement

This whole mess would no doubt make complete sense to the NRL or anyone else in possession of all the facts, but we are missing a few pieces of the puzzle I think. There needs to have been correspondence, or at least conversations between the NRL and Pascoe along the lines of Pascoe being asked if ...

Re: NRL Announcement

If, and its a very big if, relocation was the agenda then WT are their own worst enemy. The stupid 5 home ground merry go round year after year makes it hard to argue that you're a settled club with strong roots in the community. The sooner this club stops trying to appease everyone and picks one g...

Re: Who do we offload?

So in the end we may be able to spread the cap reduction over 4 years and Pascoe may be back in 9 months. And the $700k fine. I don't think we've been that harshly treated. I don’t think you get it none of it should have happened at all. Is JT’s ambassadorial role included in the cowboys upcoming y...

Re: NRL Announcement

Does anyone know if we were under the cap the last couple of years -since 2016 to be able to have included the Full value of the Farah ambassador role in the cap? I’m think If we were in 2016 we would have used that opportunity to frontload some contracts for the following year. We did play 2017 wi...

Re: NRL Announcement

Your right, it’s 100% speculation at the moment. But it must of been triggered by something and my thoughts are intentional or not, It would have come about when Farah re joined the club mid year or at least when he signed his new contract later in the year. Whether Sam did it with an axe to grind ...

Re: Who do we offload?

We need to buy 2 players with $60k.
Which means we will need to sell another player to free up money.
We need to offload a mid range player at least in order to buy 3 minimum salary squad players of 80k each.
The maths says we will need to make a call on at least one player.

Re: Who do we offload?

It will be one or two of the following. Masters. Liddle. Twal. Everyone else is on overs. Unless we go down the path of paying half contracts to players as an incentive for the other club to take them. Think about who Parramatta lost when it struck them, Melbourne as well. It’s unfortunately going t...

Re: NRL Announcement

Makes you wonder, when all that crap with Farah, and Taylor was going on, and Farah’s manager was sitting in the background saying that he had info on the tigers that could be very bad for them...... seems like that grub let it all happen to have one over the club and now it’s come out... And what ...

Re: NRL Announcement

Guys some facts have been overlooked here. The club did not gain a salary cap advantage as of the Farah ambassador role. Farah was paid out in full in 2016-2017 prior to leaving to Souths. The timeline is as follows. August 2015 JT sensationally announces Farah is moving on. Prior to 2016 season com...

Re: NRL Announcement

Who said Sam Ayoub was not involved..... Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe has a month to explain to the NRL how Robbie Farah was initially let go by the club for being "a destabilising influence", while also negotiating a four-year ambassadorial role with them for when he retired. It is this contradic...

Re: Support Justin

Should we do what the wanderers do during games? Turn up to games fill the stadium to show the club support, but during the game face away from the field so that the nrl and broadcasters only get our backs. It’s easier watching on the big screen anyway.

Re: Support Justin

Stuff a thread. I intend on creating a protest of some sorts. I love rugby league but the nrl has lost me. I need suggestions as to how to best make a statement. I’m thinking of 1stly calling the club and donating my membership to charity. I’ll probably cancel my sports package on Fox and not watch ...
