I might be one of a few here but there is only 16 jobs available and most of the top team have coaches locked in long term etc.. If he cannot make up his mind within 3 weeks I have doubts over it happening or if his even keen.. Going by report he knew this job was coming up from some time now so he has had plenty of time to make the call IMO. You either want it or you don't..
100% ..His inactivity certainly points towards a no.
Additionally, if he takes this long to make his mind up, he ain’t made of the stuff required to be the head honcho.

I’m surprised no one has dropped the old chestnut of “let’s hops Api can get in his ear”

Like I said in an earlier post if Ciraldo wants to be a coach we are rolling out the red carpet for him, why are there all these caveats, if he is confident he knows what he's doing then there is a job here no matter how big it is. I get it's a big decision but surely a week and a half he would know if he wants to come or not, I just don't like all the melodramatic. Like the Tigers having to put things in place before he comes, seriously he's a rookie not Belamy.

You have to respect his thinking wanting matters in place. He is coming from a very successful club so it is only natural he would want similar systems in place.

The club have already disclosed the focal point of development is recapturing some of that 2005 brand of footy. It's probably why Sheens, Farah and Benji were pursued by the club.
Ciraldo has gained a reputation for his ability to work with juniors plus his coaching methods are highly effective in today's game.
IMO it's as simple as getting a coach capable of bringing the club's vision together. Someone who can successfully implement a coaching model or precise training methods to integrate this (coaching) style into the Wests Tigers junior pathways systems and work collaboratively with each division to ensure the successful application of it.

The club have always been transparent with this and I've interpreted that it basically means the club wish to create a high performing culture which is embedded throughout and they are being measured with their approach, by seeking a coach that can unify this goal.
Intelligent post Lauren. A hopeful one as well. We need this.

Sad thing is that until we get the right roster and coach, it's all conceptual.
Really don't like dwelling on it but it's such a shame we were unable to keep Papenhuyzen at the club. Seems to fit the mould.
But torn about the potential coaches. Honestly wouldn't complain if we got either Ciraldo or Morris but funnily enough I like the thought of having someone like Flanagan at the club too - despite the highly unethical stuff he did at Sharks.

I could go with any of the three as well. My favourite would be Todd Payten. So I suppose, for me, there is a high chance we will get one of these coaches - trying to be positive.

He may still come. Big opportunity for someone with his reputed ability. Not a lot of jobs available (just 17 including the ones already taken, in some cases by long term or big name appointees), big bucks, long term (maybe as much as 5 years) and no immediate club expectations of finals, premierships etc while our young guys are being developed into 1st graders. If he decides not to, just go with Flanagan, Morris or someone else. Wouldn't worry about getting slagged off by the Telegraph et al for failing to land our favoured coach. The media will find some reason to bag us whatever we do!

Unless we ever figure out how to win

I’d like cc to come but I’ll be front and centre to kick his sorry smug ass if he squibs,

As Stryker-puss ( that’s what everybody calls him on the other forum) said, this frolicking around picking pansies at the foot of the mountains is wearing thin.

I can only account for his behaviour on the basis that he’s some kind of offer hoarder.

He’s most likely got 4 or 5 at that moment, approaching a third of the NRL and he’s yet to kick a chair or a swear at a gear steward in anger.

Too many offers to coach first grade NRL sides is never enough for these sick minded people.
