I am a die hard Balmain Tiger now a West Tigers member……I wouldn’t give these muppetts 2c all you would be doing is funding them to perpetuate the crap that has occurred since the merger. Let them die…they deserve it. throwing good money after bad is an apt description of this fighting fund.
I will be donating some cash , yes the club is in deep crap through dumb ideas , very bad board decisions , and maybe this has shaken them up , losing half of the joint venture would be and absolute stuff up , they need help , they are part of footy , no different to Souths , wests , easts , each to their own , I want the balmain part to stay as part of my wests tigers , history is a big part
i got burned once before donating, the tigers wanted the fans to put money in to get Hanley to stay, they got a good amount cant remember how much. but hanley signed with wests and we never seen the money again nor did we get another player to replace hanley.
Whether people want to admit it or bury their heads in the sand, its a lost cause. People donating 50 bucks, even a couple hundred here and there isn’t going to make a lick of difference. You’re just throwing your money away. And as i asked earlier, i think the question of what happens to the money once the fight is lost is actually pretty relevant. Whose pocket will that fall into?
