Is it just me

Is it just me or is it time for robbie to seriously consider retirement, IMO he was woeful he is just so slow around the ruck even in defence he seems to struggle getting onside, he has been a fantastic clubman for the tigers and a great captain for many years but I reckon if he doesn’t seriously start to consider hanging up his boots it will jeopardise his legacy for the tigers. If it were me I’d bugger the money id rather be remembered as a great clubman not as someone who played two seasons two long and was a passenger therefor becoming a cautionary tale.

Maybe he’s realised the mess he created last season has hampered us, because I agree his body language on field is that of someone who’s miserable

With body language like that Farah definitely should not be captain. It is certainly time for a real shake up within the club and by that I mean a shake up of coach, captain and players. Release of truth instead of spin from club management and coach to faithful supporters would not go astray either.

Yeah, everyone knows that I’ve been a huge supporter of Robbie and, even up until recently, I thought the rampant criticism of him on here has been unjustified. However, in his last few games for us he has played way below his usual standard and he does appear to be very disinterested.

I don’t know if this is just as a result of where the team is at this year - many of the players look like they wish the season was over, tbh - or if, as you say liltiger, it is actually time for him to hang up his boots.

He is 33 and has had a great career. He is a businessman and has many other interests, so perhaps it is time he thinks about pursuing another career path. My only hope is that he would go out being remembered, by us fans, as a champion rather than a chump.

Maybe the realisation has dawned on him that now the coach that he helped into the position truely CAN NOT COACH!

Still playing injured

He has a contract worth about 900g a year and people think he should do the honourable thing and walk away from that deal. Why would he, as a pro footballer you have a very small window in your life to make money, so you will not see Robbie or any other footballers walking away from a big fat juicy contract.

Maybe ESL is a chance, but I think he will stick around to the end of his contract

Sad but true, methinks.
Robbie talked too much last year to Tallis which came out into the public arena therefore crucifying Potter. Now he understands that Potter wasn’t that bad after all.

Unfortunately he can’t say a damn thing now, he has to suffer it. He probably believed, as we all did, that JT was going to fix things. JT’s defence and structures were what we needed. Look at the reality.

Farah looks sullen.

While I’m at it, Farah wasn’t the only one that fell for Taylor’s dribble. Our board said that JT’s presentation was the best, that’s why they selected him. They fell hook, line and sinker for the same dribble.

Forget about other applicants that runs on the board, they just didn’t talk the talk, is all.

I see your point but in reality a coach is only as good as his cattle TBH. No team has ever won a premiership with a pathetic roster and that is unfortunately what we Ade stuck with for the next few years at least until we sort our salary cap schemozzle out. We could have the best coach money could buy and it doesn’t make much of a difference IMO. You may as well run last as much as 2nd when it comes down to it.

This just isnt the case, the roster is ok it is however not playing to its ability.

We could make the 8 with this roster, would need another 3 genuine first graders to challenge top 4 though.

Yeah pathetic was too strong of a word but we have a very average roster in all reality, some of that is due in part to the inexperience of many of our players who may turn into quality players in a few years.As it stands now though we are light years aaway from the top teams, you only have to look at all of our losses to the useless teams around us on the ladder. It happens every single year,we lose regularly against teams of equal or more often lesser ability than ourselves. That seems to be a culture problem,attitude,focus,commitment etc….Taylor has adopted that problem, he isn’t the sole cause of it like people would have you believe. Sure he isn’t a great coach but the players need to man up, stand up and take responsibility for lack of heart and desire out on the paddock. We as a club do not have enough steel in us, never have bar '05.

Cant argue with that. its the truth.

Only real debate is how long is long enough for Taylor to try and change that. Some want another year, others have seen enough to say he isnt the man for the job.

His service is now very very slow…. This on top of our players regularly being dominated in the ruck makes us sitting ducks
