That is the difference between a Manly and a Wests Tiger supporter, WTDiehard - Tiger supporters are the salt of the earth, (never say die, throw what you like at us, knock us down but count on us getting back up again, type of supporters).
Balmain and Western Suburbs supporters were the same - hard times, don’t care, we’ll stick together and come out all the better for it.
What happened to all these Wests Tigers supporters, get a few things that don’t go your way and they want out. Whinging and crying about this and that - blimey these old supporters (e.g. Laurie Nichols) would turn over in their grave.
This guy whoever he is, says he has decided he won’t be a member this year because he is not liking it. Well Mate! Wests Tigers don’t need you when they are winning the competition or finishing in the the top four. They need you now, when they are struggling for all they are worth. They need support, more than ever.
You don’t hear Teddy saying I have played the first six rounds and I don’t like how we are going or some of the decisions that are being made so I am not playing the rest of the season.
I have been following this team in one form or another for 66 years and there have been plenty of lean times in there I can tell you. Do you give up. NO.
Suffer the bad times with the club, the players and other diehard supporters - because when it comes good it is sweeter than ever.
Wake up to yourself, stop being so pitiful and get behind our beloved Tigers and support them to the hilt.
Go you Mighty Tigers!!!
The team loves fans like you. Why would they change if fans just accept everything that they do and continue to give support and money? Just do the same old incompetent rubbish and everyone will buy it and you’ll still make profits.
No, I’m not saying be a bandwagoner. I personally can handle losing when I can see the team is managed at even a mediocre level of competence. I can handle losing when there’s signs of getting better. I can handle losing when there is a plan. None of these exists in this scenario. Don’t expect change by still feeding them money and telling them everything is OK.
