Cleary declares Tigers not dead yet

yeah we’re toast, just have to hope we at least finish on a high winning the last 2. At least we won’t be getting the spoon as many predicted at the start of the year or even finishing in the bottom 4. Still disappointing given we shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times, but I guess the same could be said of some of our opponents who it could be argued shot themselves in the foot by not beating us.

Of the teams missing the 8 only the cows and the eagles havnt beaten us.

that’s bad in itself, but I was more looking at Roosters, Storm twice, Bunnies and Dragons not beating us

Oh right. Theyd be scratching their heads alright.

Is it just me or are contributors to this forum, with the word "tiger " in their name, the most critical of our club and coach?

It’s you :slight_smile:. I’ve actually been pleased how well we’ve gone given all the disruptions in the spine this year and losing a number of players even before the season started.

I’m disappointed sure, to be so close yet to miss out again, hurts. And I admire our coach, I thought when he signed up he would be the one to lift us up out of this mess. Maybe he still is, but unfortunately mud sticks, and I don’t have the same amount of faith in him I once did.

Hoping come November and that all changes,

I want to believe, but as we have been let down so many times it isn’t easy to keep the faith. A few good signings over the off-season (including young Nathan) will help a lot with that. Fingers crossed.

Unless there is a major salary cap breach by a team above us and the NRL act on it our season is dead and dusted.

The start of a very hard sell, attracting people on a Thursday night to Cambo when really we are done for the year

Against Manly aswell. Hats of to anyone that travels more than 15mins to attend.

Well at least this situation of being done for the year did not occur until round 24 instead of round 17 or even round 10 where it was already looking likely until Ivan and Benji sent smoke signals to the Lone Ranger.

Anyone happy to finish 9th, please leave. You are the problem

Now Mr Patriot I can well understand that coming from you because when that avartar guy you are using was in a team coming 9th and beyond he also pulled up stumps and that made the problem worse. Hi Tommy

Garbage! It’s the fan’s fault? How in the heck do you work that one out? And don’t give me the crap about settling for mediocrity!
What do you suggest? Form a lynch mob and head out to Wests Tigers HQ and 'string ‘em up’ if they don’t make the 8? You reckon that would work?
Give me a break!

Fire up Yeti, tell us what you really think.

Now as for the line you quoted it was in relation to the people who were posting that theyd be happy with 9th most seasons as its better than being at the bottom of the table.

If you and the others who have quoted me are happy to finish 9th every year so be it, just stop trying to pull up anyone who wants to aim a little higher.

9th is better than 10th…

Havent played finals in what, 7? Seasons.

Where as cowboys are missing their first finals… In 7 seasons.

We need to step up.

Bill Belichick was head coach of the Browns for 5 years, he was fired by the Browns.

He was announced as head coach of the Jets but left that orginisation after just 1 day when he received a better offer from the Patriots.

He hasnt looked back.

What was your point about him pulling up stumps?

Now Col,once again you seem to have made a rash statement,I would say due to frustration mainly,however,a majority of us have TIGER in our user name because we have mainly been Balmain Tiger supporters for years during our youth or the younger ones on this forum may refer to the WTs as Tigers and use Tiger in their user name….You on the other hand use Mapiecol as your user name because you probably were a diehard Western Suburbs supporter in your hayday…
Either way we are WESTS TIGERS members and fans…
As for being critical of our coach and team,at times it is human nature when a person becomes frustrated or angry during the year to vent that particular situation on the forum…
As for me I will deadset and imphatically say that Iam more than happy to finish 9th this year because I have noticed much improvement with the club and team,and dont forget we were made favourites by the experts to be wooden spooners this year…
Also during the year most have said we are a team of fringe first graders,jouneymen and young inexperienced players who would only make up the numbers…IF we finish betwen 10/12th it would be a good year…so why wouldnt I be happy with 9th…
After all we did beat ourselves a couple of times as did some pooor reffing,overall this year has had its highs and lows,BUT,it has been a year where we have also moved forward right across the club…

I cant wait to pay my membership for next year even with the’ Ivan could be leaving’ cloud hanging over our heads…



Cheers TRUE TIGER…by name and nature…

Let’s get a win v Manly and hopefully put a score on them and see what develops from there

Been 13 years since our last miracle , might be lucky ……
