RE: Robbie Farah..Discussion Thread.....
posted in Wests Tigers Discussion
Some of you are talking about players as if they are simply commodities. The effect on morale by this decision will do more damage than any other decision made to date. I expect clubs to start approaching Woodsie, Tapau, Tedesco, and any of our other regular first graders - and we all know a contract these days means nothing. The only reason that we still have Tedesco is because of Robbie. Free up more money –- what player is going to want to sign with West Tigers when it is well documented that we are broke, and we are running last. The Captain is gone watch the troops jump with him. Dark days ahead.
Not sure about that. The word is that the younger players seem to just fall into line with anything Farah would say, bordering on submissive behaviour. Off the record, I heard an ex player state he had never seen anything like it, hence they all fell into line with the nature of Potter’s exit.
Farah leaving could see some of these young players express themselves way beyond anything we have seen from them to date. Whilst Farah spoke did the talking with Tedesco, it was the reminder of playing with Brooks and Moses that kept him at the club.
Further, we are not broke. We were a basketcase in 2002 and we managed to sign Prince. It’s always darkest before dawn….
