RE: Madge needs to go
posted in Wests Tigers Discussion
I honestly don’t know that there is a coach out there that can turn this club around.
Failure and mediocrity seems to be a part of our fabric and I don’t know who can change it, let alone how they would do it.
Each year I approach the season with optimism, this is the year the drought ends. And after our offseason recruiting drive the forum shared that optimism. I didn’t expect us to beat the Raiders or the Roosters, but I genuinely didn’t expect to see them give up so early in the year.
I feel sorry for Madge. He sees the bigger picture and what is wrong with the club, but for whatever reason he can’t get the group to bring that to fruition on the field. In saying that neither could Cleary, Taylor, Potter or even Sheens consistently.
It’s frustrating to watch other teams go on a spending spree over the offseason and turn things around in one year. I feel like we’ve been going around in circles trying to do the same thing for the last 10 years.
I don’t know what it will take to fix us. Maybe Madge is the man for the job, maybe he isn’t. But I don’t think sacking him 2 games into a contract extension is smart business.
