I’m no fan of Fatty on TV ( past his use by date in my opinion ) but for Singo , of all people , to bag his playing record?
Played in a premiership winning team ,for his state and for his country.
Singo should look at his own advertising record - ad campaigns like "where do ya get it"and “Betty Best and Lottie Less” will live forever as classic ( but strangely effective for a short time) retail crap (aaarghh)
Possibly he meant to tell Fatty to do as he did- realise you have no real talent and pay someone else to do the work under your company name whilst taking all the credit publicly .
When it comes to bogans Fatty doesn’t come close to Singo 😆

Gamebreakers should get that sort of money - and he’s no gamebreaker.
No doubt a good halfback but at that money no thanks.

Sad to see all the anti Moltzen brigade who always said he shouldn’t be half and wasn’t a fullback getting stuck into him before even one game’s been played.
Give the guy a break. :bash

You’re probably referring to me. Not bashing him at all, just stating a fact. He has never had a competent kicking game in first grade, unless you can provide me some video evidence to the contrary.

He is going to need to develop a kicking game if we are to be successful with him playing halfback. I would love nothing more than for that to happen, as it will mean we should have a great year.

Not referring to you personally Happy .
There seem to be a fair few on here who don’t like anything he does and can’t give him credit for anything.
All I’m saying is can we at least wait until he does something wrong before we bag him.
Personally , even though I thought he would have done better at half than Lui last year , he seemed to be making a good fist of fullback after being shunted around all seaon .
I’m surprised Sheens didn’t leave him there- but he obviously has someone else pencilled in for fullback.

@Gary Bakerloo:

@cktiger:

Seriously if you just called the team the Tigers you wouldn’t lose more than a handfull of supporters. If we reverted back to Balmain Tigers would only lose a trickle more.

About as silly as Alf’s comments. Trickle = half membership base.

13 years ago Balmain faced the reality they would not be able to compete in a national competition standing alone, now you argue otherwise? Many on here complain about old Wests fans complaining about the fairness of the JV (sometimes warranted), but many old Balmain fans on here have delusions of grandeur.

We are stuck with each other in a symbiont relationship that is successful. Thoughts of standing alone for either Wests or Balmain is pure fantasy.

Sorry Gary - didn’t mean we should actually do either - although I don’t think old Maggie supporters make up half of our current supporter base.
Apart from original Wests and Balmain supporters the majority of younger supporters just follow the “Tigers”.
Sad , but true , they don’t give a fig about junior football or where the players are developed - just the fact they play for the “Tigers”
Was trying to make the point that the rally has seemed to turn away from fixing problems with the juniors to be all about the perceived Balmain domination of the JV
You only have to read the comments on this forum - plenty of supporters don’t even care that the team is a hybrid of two former clubs and care less about their history.

@Balmain Bug:

Why are the sleeves on the Eye of the Tiger jersey, black and grey ? would have it not made more sense for them to be black and white ???

This jersey should never have got off the ground.
Black , Gold , White , Grey , Yellow with a touch of the sonsors Red thrown in….
WestsTigers colours?

I have the jersey CK, and I have to say I really like it.

To be honest CB , I don’t mind the look of it - just the use of colours non existent to our club.
Then again when you see what other clubs trot out in (especially away jerseys) maybe I’m being too pedantic :slight_smile:

Next thing there’ll be a protest to call us WestsMacArthurMagpies!

Be happy with the Magpie on the jersey guys (there is no Balmain on there) and concentrate on the issues with the juniors.
