Tigers perhaps need to be cumbersome for a few years after several years of not being cumbersome enough.
Managers only get the irrits because clubs don’t flash the cash or take due diligence. Managers are like real estate agents, they want the deal done yesterday with buckets of cash.
Sure, I can understand your point about being cautious, but…
I doubt anyone could mount a credible argument in favour of inefficient and unnecessary delays in administrative dealings? This sort of behaviour can develop distrust.
“While Arthur is criticised for being too old-school and not taking on new ideas, O’Neill and the Eels football department are castigated throughout the NRL for being “too bureaucratic”. Their slow decision making and negotiating frustrates many. Managers say, along with Wests Tigers, they are the most cumbersome club to deal with.
Last year’s negotiations with club captain Clint Gutherson were a case in point. Rightfully, Gutherson felt disrespected and he has proved himself to be their best player. It was not how their leader deserved to be treated and every signing the club makes is like pulling teeth.”
