I forgot about Sue. I think we need some outside backs over props at the moment and especially some class players in the outside backs.

Bp - Ava is gone & I can’t see us getting those two players. I don’t want Graham for a cool million per season anyway. I’d rather go and get Hoppa and stuff their club up. They will have a great front row and hardly anyone else around those guys. I can see Woods copping it big time from Canterbury supporters over the next couple of years.

well if ava is gone and we only have ben, then we will be up the creek without a boat. whats the point letting woods go and ava and only getting ben in. don’t see ant other props that are any good or worth getting.

Personally I wouldn’t have let Ava go and I would have paid a bit more than Cronulla to keep him.

I suppose the club feels it has ET at 8 and maybe MCK to interchange with him so that leaves 4 prop positions open. Matulino, Aloiai, JJ Felise and Grant can probably do the job. In my opinion though that is light on and we need some more props.

I still haven’t heard one rational point why the club is a basketcase. I think I’ll be waiting for a long time.

Man there’s some real club haters on here. Makes you wonder why they even bother supporting.

I don’t get it. I’d like to understand where it is coming from but it makes no rational sense to me.

As an example if we are over the cap the 3 traitors that are leaving would have been the guys earning the biggest chunk of that change and yet the club is to blame for them leaving.

Rationally to me the arguments don’t make any sense.

They are all posters who staunchley supported Farah and have been unable to divorce themselves from their anger about his treatment. And there’s another one who is bitter that Western Suburbs are majority shareholders and doesn’t go one post without making it known. Just like journos, there are some on here with agenda’s and axes to grind.

That makes more sense because it doesn’t appear to be rational to me.

Getting rid of Robbie and paying him the reported $700k per year was dumb but reading between the lines the traitors wanted Robbie gone anyway. I think it was partly a decision to placate those guys. I fail to see why that bad decision which was made by Taylor (all club management did was back him and what else could they do) means the club is unprofessional.

As for Western Suburbs being majority shareholders I fail to see the relevance to the clubs professional status.

That happy guy that was on here admitted that he was friends with the traitorous number 1 family. That was clearly an attempt to slander the club to make them out to be the problem rather than a disloyal ingrate. I hate that stuff.

Really? His 109kg I belive, what isn’t big enough for the front row when you’ve got guys like Gallen, Ethan Lowe, Matt Prior, Nathan Brown, Kyle Turner, Issac Lui and Aidan Tolman all spending time up front and in the Middle
Sue is honestly our most punchy forward and makes the most meters after contact in the team during his hitups. Start him at Prop until Joshie A grows completely into his body.

I can actually back up this sentiment with factual analysis that sue is actually Tigers best forward +/- wise, sue (-1.32) is 2 point per 80m played better than the next tigers forward. Fearless leader Aaron woods is -8.32 points per 80 mins played. Enjoy the 1 mil wasted per season Bulldogs.

I think we are a lot better off losing Woods especially for the money he wants. I think Ava is a loss. To me he has more impact per run than what Woods does.

Telltails - let’s break down your criticisms:-

1. Club over the cap. Have the club been charged ? Is there systematic rorting ? How bad was it ? Has the club been charged via the NRL ? My take is this really isn’t a big deal.
2. Lovett being charged with cocaine possession. This happens all the time in rugby league. Barba was drug tested and failed. Corey Norman went through a similar thing but much worse recently. Andrew Johns was rumoured to have all sorts of drug problems. Simona went through a drama this season as well. These are young guys who are earning relatively a tonne of money and these things are going to happen.
3. JT was sacked. It was the right decision.
4. Woods dogging the club. How is that the clubs fault.

I don’t see what your complaints are about. You sound like you are unreasonable in relation to the club and letting the players off lightly. These guys have been overpaid for a long time. We’ve supported them through injuries and built the club around them.

We made a mistake in the way we treated these guys. I can see that but that is because these guys are disloyal and lack integrity.

In my opinion you have not provided any evidence at all that this club is unprofessionally managed.

So my boo’s on the weekend are why the team lost and it’s also causing us to struggle with recruiting players ?

Righto !

Yep, family sure does come first. Think some people on here take their footy a little too seriously - it’s only a game !!
WT Management of coaches sacking - very disappointing - could have been handled a lot better.

How could it have been handled better ?

God knows what some expect.

There appears to be no real constructive criticism when it comes to what is wrong with the club. It’s just broad comments without any facts or alternatives.
