Snapped a patella years ago, would have preferred a dislocation

RE: Mitch Moses Denied Release - Confirmed
Personally I feel he shouldn’t be let go. Talks that moeroa is the player parra are only willing to swap or give a financial compensation and that’s not enough in my opinion
Moeroa would be a first rate aquisition. Before Parra turned him into an unthinking battering ram he was an excellent centre, with good feet, top end speed and brutal D. God knows why he’s wasting his talent in the backrow
RE: It is over for Taylor
Naquiama still defending the most difficult space on the field. As Einstein said ‘Insanity is repeating the same behaviours and expecting a different outcome’ Great to see Farah and Ado-Carr having great games. Robbie’s smile must be wider than Luna Park
He was a hideous defender when on the wing, so why would u then ask him to defend the most difficult space on the field? Reprise his defensive performance against Canberra last year at Leichhardt, speaks for itself. Surprised that Lawrence does not defend this channel. But you’re dealing with Jason Taylor, a man who repeats unsuccessful behaviours like no other. I know 3rd Grade Subbies coaches with acres of ideas compared to JT
RE: Concorde Oval....
I went to the Simon Dwyer tribute match against the Storm this year, was really disappointed with the crowd.
People say the are footy mad in South West Sydney then why not turn up to a game where all money raised went to Simon, if I can travel 3 hours each way you would think that the locals can get to the game!!!
Whether they’re indifferent, lazy, or otherwise occupied is immaterial. The State Gov’t have planned for additional 150,000 homes in the south west corridor over the next 15-18 years. Continuing and improved engagement of people in the MacArthur area is a #1 priority
RE: Souths 2014 Premiers
There’s no doubt they deserved their premiership, but that doesn’t mean they don’t remain one of the most despised teams to long term Tigers supporters. It’s the nature of a community/geographically based competition. It exists between Saints and the Sharks, Penrith & Parra and used to be equally intense between Norths and Manly. Dismissing history and the role it plays in galvanising supporters is short sighted and ignorant, if not intellectually lazy
Souths he captured the essence of the game’s future, where bigger, faster and stronger has/is supplanting skill, adventure, as well as the notion of risk and reward. Conservatism rules, even when scrums compress defences and offer much more space. Employ battalions of decoys and you might create space, but more often than not it’s bash three or four over the gain line, run a couple of decoys, then select the appropriate kick. Souths have mastered it, good luck to them
RE: Wests Tigers confirm Jason Taylor as new coach
A poor appointment in my view, one that you can only assume was driven by the Magpie Board Members. Ejected from the SCG for throwing cups of urine in the air during the Mexican Wave, not having the common sense to make himself scarce on Mad Monday etc.
The Club had the opportunity to free itself of the past and create a new, unattached culture, free of the Sironens, Roaches, Leeds, Paytens etc. Anthony Griffin would have brought not just a good coaching brain, but a new group of assistants and most importantly, a mature, no nonsense approach, without having to pay homage to any political masters
Having someone with more money than sense seems to be our only long term hope
RE: New Board to be Announced Within a few Days
There was no one with little league experience on the previous board and that got us to where we are now…I think if you stop for a second and look at their Business credentials you might be surprised…what has being a women got to do with it…
Which is why they are recruiting a GM of Football operations…the Board handles the business direction of the Club…The GM handles the football side…smart move IMO…
You will never please everyone i suppose.
GOT NO PROBS WITH WOMEN BEEN ON THE BOARD JUST IRKS ME THAT THEY CANT GO AHEAD UNTIL THEY HAVE ONE , DO WOMEN HAVE MEN ON THERE NETBALL BORADS I WONDER OR OTHER FEMALE RELATED SPORTS.
SORE CAPS WAS ON.
Your example wasn’t chosen wisely. The Board of Netball Australia is one of the most impressive in World Sport. The breadth and depth of their commercial, legal and management experience is just about unequalled. I never want to see another Board, be it the Wests Tigers, Balmain or the Magpies with names like Leo, Hobbs, Bailey, Di Girolamo et al. These meat tray sellers, quasi celebrities, fanboys, starstruck lawyers and ex players are chief among the reasons we now see this Club with a toxic and dysfunctional atmosphere
RE: Run Captain Run
In what universe is Robbie Farah required to be front and centre for the amusement of New Ltd and their trash publications? The real culprit is Gorden Tallis, whom it seems is made of teflon. His mates at News have spent the better part of a week promoting the banjo playing halfwit as a ‘straight shooter’ and the only commentator who ‘calls it as it is’. The truth is that Tallis has betrayed a confidence and that’s just unforgivable. Farah is not accountable to News or any of the other bottom dwellers that make up the RL media
