Pretty much all of Eels players are better. Like last week I’ll be thrilled with losing by under 20, which seems like a big stretch. Tigers will have to play out of their skin.

Ah well, might as well forfeit then.

MEMO TO JREY AND RUSS
JAMES TAMOU put his had up at Pamfers to be released so their young guns can be resigned because he can see what the future holds for the Pamfers and he didn’t want to be the one to cause a young gun to be lost to the club Come on guys move over or better still move on.Please.

Where did you hear this mate? Last I heard Panthers offered him a 1 year deal ( most likely at reduced rate) but he wanted more. Maybe it changed, but I don’t think it’s quite as noble as you think.

He was interviewed on Ch 7 news

Ok

Not sure if this is correct, but on the ABC this afternoon they said that Grant does not have a contract with Storms for next year but has an option in his favour.

Interesting comments in Bellamy’s post-match presser.

When asked about Harry being 100% back next season, he couldn’t say that - mentioned waiting for Cam Smith, and that Harry is more likely than not to be back, but definitely not 100%. Some chance there…

RE JAC, as per info already on the forum - they want something we’re not willing to give. If it doesn’t get sorted this coming week, it will wait till the end of their finals campaign.

Really not concerned about JAC at this stage.
Another player wanting extra $ when he has not proven himself at a position.
Offer has been on the table but like Mitchell it won;t happen.

He can’t take the offer at this point in time as he is signed for next year.

Well simple let him play out his contract next year with the storm, all the Media around it think its a formality

Where in the media does it say its a formality?

So what happened with my posts censored i assume?
Entertaining banter from 2 supporters both annoyed about tonights performance.

Disguised swearing breeches forum rules.

In regards to you arguments the press is not stating its a formality, the Storm want a replacement player before releasing JAC. They say if they don’t get it then he will be in Melbourne nest year.

Fair enough if you could spell Breach ???
I could not care less what the press state most if if is made up to sell quotas.

As I said all good banter cheers moderator!!!

Seriously, resorting to picking up spelling errors lol. You were the one that said said the media was saying it was a formality? Now you don’t care what they say, seems kind of pointless raising it in the first place then.

Well you stated the swap deal about getting a replacement but stated you had heard nothing in the media? Censor that point as well your starting to sound like your not impartial which is what this forum is about sure you don’t work for the tigers ???

I didn’t state that I heard nothing in the media until you claimed the media said it was a formality, so I said I hadn’t heard that in the media. I’m actually usually one of the people critical of the club, but the club can not sign someone who is contracted for next year.

It is you’re by the way 😜

Well the good thing about next week is I don’t need to listen to your dribble anymore.
Nor have my posts censored lol

The foe feature might work well for you.

Who would you like the club to sign for next year?

In all honesty there is not much talent available on the market next season unless players want to break contracts which personally I don’t agree with as clubs can’t off load dud signing?

Tamou on reasonable $ good Signing.
Need a whole new spine and some mongrel in our forwards. JAC 50/50 not sure really wants to play for us rather play for Souths.

Maybe a few fringe panthers players if they are looking for an opportunity to play regular 1st grade like Grant did this season.

I was quite concerned at the Tamou signing until I heard the clubs reasons for signing him. I think Liddle will do well at hooker if he can stay healthy and the new rules should suit him. We are incredibly weak in the halves and at fullback, with what we have Mbye has to spend the entire offseason under the highball and Doueihi into the centres. I would love at least one half but there is none available. We really lack that devastating high impact runner but it appears the club is not looking for that at the moment.

Like too see how Brooks plays with Marshall hogging the ball?
If can’t perform move on ASAP.
Mybe don’t rate him much and certainly not captain material on the field, but has played better at fullback prior weeks,
AD a centre swap for BJ and put him in the forwards when mono returns.
It’s really a very unstable squad that Madge has given most weeks with alsolast minute changes.
Real lack of depth shows.
Biggest problem our starts and coaching failed to rectify all season???
Don’t mind losing as long as perform tonight we showed nothing worthy of who we are??
I do ? The coach as well starting to think all bluff but have to be fair with whom he has currently.
Backwards this season with having a loan player as our best performer!!

It does appear that Madge needs certain types players to be successful, I don’t think he is a coach that adapts well to allow him to change his style for the players he has. Hopefully he can attract the type of players he needs.

Talking about D all season and giving away 50
Is a reflection of the coach and his selections?
I would not have played Reynolds tonight??
Coaches should be adaptable Holbrook has worked well with under performing players

You’d rather have Madden? The blokes tiny they would’ve had Nelson run at him game. Reynolds didn’t play well but he made his tackles most
Of the time.

Just because your tiny does not mean you can’t tackle Alan langer is one example at origin level.
Reynolds continually ran out of the Line and didn’t tackle at all apart from Air.

I just don’t get the sprinting out of the line, he is constantly doing it and if the player beats him any defensive structure is gone.

He does it so when forwards run at him he doesn’t give them as much time to wind up I’ve heard him talk about it. Trouble is when he does it against anyone with decent footwork they go around him.

My young fella used to do it so he didn’t “have” to tackle. Makes you look like you’re committed which is a long way from reality.

There is not another coach in the competition who has so much money tied up in the wrong players.Until it is rectified we are are going to be handicapped. And please don’t bring up JT because his roster at the time would run rings around this one. The one thing I think Maguire can lament is BJ - a risk that hasn’t paid off at this point.

What about the roster was better? We had Tedesco, that’s it. We also had Lovett, Rankin, Buchanan, Milone, Edwards etc.If I took your post back in time to 2016, people would be splitting their sides.

The value of Teddy to any team is immeasurable - we would be a much better team with him now. Brooks played twice as good with Teddy at the back. We had some go forward with Woods and Tapau ( whom Taylor let go for Balin) JAC Simona and Moses for speed and the nucleus of decent spine to play behind and draw other players to the club - even with the plodders.

Taupau was not here in 2016. Moses was a rookie who was on par with Brooks now. Simona wasn’t better than our current centres. current centres JAC played all of 5 games.

With the job Payten and Holbrook are doing, I wouldn’t have thought any of Maguire’s defenders would have the hide to complain about his cattle.

Simona was a great centre and at one point our winning record was dependant on when he played
JAC only player when he did because Rankin was selected ahead of him. But you can’t ignore the Teddy factor and his value to the team or any team
I will defend Maguire while our cap is the mess it’s in. As I have said numerous time I can’t see one other team in the comp that has there highest money earners as their worst contributers. When that is corrected he will be judged like all other coaches - by results. I will add the Titans pack would eat ours up and spit them out - no surprise at all how Holbrook has got them going.
As for Payten - “jobs for the boys, whiteanter” -
we could have had him, no problem with me.

Hate to break it to you, but all bar Reynolds and Packer, this is Madge’s team. He’s signed them all.

He didn’t sign Mbye on a 4 year deal either did he?

We had the perfect opportunity to punt this myth, and bring Toddy payten on board

Yeah, nothing shouts stability more than another coaching change before the contract is up.

But sooner than later someone needs to realize he’s not the right one

How do you know Payten is? Why don’t you reserve judgment of Payten until he has had a couple of seasons as a head coach when there is expectation every week as opposed to the situation he is currently in.

Wasn’t there some rumour about Gould too? If i recall it went something along the lines of pay me $1 more than your highest paid player which the club obviously didn’t do.

@JoshColeman99 said in The "It's not my fault look"....:

That whole right edge has no trust in each other. Benji, Garner, Joey and Nofa have no faith in their inside men to make a tackle which just ends up leaving massive gaps all over the shop.

Bingo!! The outside backs are always going to follow the inside men in. Add to that the lack of faith ( and to be honest it’s often justified) in their inside players to hit and stick just allows confusion to reign.
