Driven mad since '69 (bar 2005)
Stop the Press
Wests tigers are offering off cutt players form more successful clubs 1 more contract for them to milk out more money before they retire.
Even though this is a rumor thread - It seems the Tigers haven’t learnt yet that we shouldn’t recruit the dregs of the NRL hoping that the player will have a stellar year like they did years back.
Past performance isn’t a reliable indicator of future returns.
If Madge don’t get Rapana he’s said he wants Montoya and Tolman
Holland goes alright and kicks goals …
Plays well against us like most players
We are also featured quite heavily in media highlight reels when a team is being scored against…
I’ve noticed that on most channels
When we they are talking to a player about the week coming up or anything they show clips of them scoring always against us
Ch9 had a story about Benji tonight, next story about Frizell and they show him swatting Benji’s attempted tackle away lol.
unfortunately film of benji getting swatted away is far too common
Well, I’m glad “The NRL Economist Ramy Haidar” has analysed the Wests Tigers and sorted out all the things that we have been doing incorrectly. Things like buying all these guys with too many caps that we are paying heaps for their performances up to when we signed them. I’m also glad how he mentioned that most of these were purchased by a lowlife scumbag, who broke his contract and raked off, leaving us holding the bag of exhorbitant signings, some till the end of 2022. Of course we didn’t know all this, so thanks Ramy.
Was also excited how he highlighted that we purchased this old guy with many caps called James Tamou but failed to mention that we have signed…
Shawn Blore (Age: 20), Asu Kepaoa (Age: 20), Stefano Utoikamanu (Age: 20), resigned Luke Garner (Age: 25), Tommy Talau (Age: 20), Alex Twal (Age: 24), Adam Doueihi (Age:22), Reece Hoffman (Age: 19), Jacob Liddle (Age: 23), Jake Simpkin (Age: 18), Josh Aloiai (Age: 24), Luciano Leilua (Age: 24), Thomas Mikaele (Age: 22), Paul Momirovski (Age: 24), Jock Madden (Age: 20) and Zane Musgrove (Age: 24).
Hopeful of re- signing Sam McIntyre (Age: 22) in the next few weeks. So we have 10 players that are leaving at this stage, 17 players of our 34 incl. 4 dev players that are under 25 years for an average age of 21.8 years. Add the overpaid Packer, Mbye and Reynolds and we have a fairly young team. Hardly filled with overpriced players from yesteryear.
As for asking Gary Jack for his two cents worth - the guy obviously has an agenda against Pascoe (cut because no one is asking his opinion or to be a mentor) and is now starting to raise his ugly head as much as “Backdoor” Benny. Neither of their opinions are worth a two cent stamp.
As for your piece of tripe Ramy - The Wests Tigers are well aware of the problems however unless you break contracts it takes time to right the ship. In the meantime maybe you could work an an article that could be relevant.
Couldn’t agree more @Russell
I apologise, I was bored so a threw a grenade and sat back to watch the fun…lol
