@Jimmy said in Wests Tigers snare teen tyro Utoikamanu...:

Can these guys actually get lost…like far out we get it you poached our players illegally…now we’ve stollen one of yours legally and your having a fit…double standards much…honestly I hate parra more than Penrith and grubithos combined

How are they having a fit? Nothing wrong with them wanting him to honour the end of his contract. The fit is coming from this forum, expecting Parra should roll over because we want him a year early. Maybe our club should try holding its players to contracts sometime.

Guess whose back

What’s this I’m hearing about BJ. I saw the forgotten man call the signing official, and I googled him and he’s listed as playing for us on his wiki. Yet I can’t find any official announcement or anything on here about it. I need to know cos I’m almost back in Sydney Harbour, and need to know if I’m jumping over board and swimming back out to the Pacific.

How’s the cruise?

Yeah good. Sitting in Noumea atm. Really dig this place. I’m working on my Greg Louganis incase we haven’t signed anyone by the 27th. Which is looking likely.

And look, I don’t wanna bag Pascoe, cos overall I think he’s been ok, and i’ve had a couple good personal dealings with him. But…It doesn’t come across well that he’s still out there promoting all the cash we have in the war chest and have done nothing with it. This isn’t October/November. It’s mid January and have nothing to show for this supposed great position we’re in. Does he still talk this way if we haven’t signed anyone of note by June? I can see both sides. I get that people get frustrated when others use him as a punching bag, but I get where the complainers come from. He sounds like a used car salesman. And at this point in time, it’s beyond frustrating.

Bennett was doing exactly what players have done in using WT interest to leverage better deals elsewhere. We had no real hope of getting him.

As for Johnston, if he doesn’t diss WT I’ve no problems with going after him later but if g e publicly diss’s WT like Arrow did we should never consider him again. Pride guys.

what did Arrow say?

It’s somewhere back in the past threads here, very basically he would rather go to mars than play for WT. I’m probably wrong in location mentioned but you get the drift.

I think you’re wrong, period. He’s not record as saying that anywhere. At best, someone repeated it as second hand info. And we all know how on the money insiders have been since this circus started.

Go all out for Doueihi. Even if it’s for 2021.

I’m leaving on a cruise today. 14 nights. I’ll be off the grid for the majority of that time. If I sail back into the harbour 2 weeks today and we still have not signed anyone, I might swim back out to sea.

Surprised we are even bothering in 2020…

We haven’t even played a trial game and the players are being judged already… lol so much negativity

Guess you missed 2019.

Its 95% the same team that failed beautifully last year. Unless they all got stuck into the peptides i doubt they’ve gotten stronger, faster more talented in 4 months.

More spectacular failures on the 2020 horizon. but yeah, need to be more positive, as i hold the pom poms, “Go Tigers, you can do it…this year, or the next, or the next, yay Tigers” 🙄

How can you say they failed? They were supposedly the wooden spooners but instead nearly snuck in the eight… I will remain positive so I guess to each their own… you get even more stressed if you remain or chose to be in that negative frame of mind.

Where were we the supposed wooden spooners? Said who?

Hang on parra brought in 5-6 players we got nothing big difference

They brought them in during and after their wooden spoon year, ie over 18 months.

I think that is what will happen with us also. It will take time.

I’ve heard this same spiel since 2013. 7 years. You can’t blame people for getting annoyed when they are told it will take time and to have patience. Some get sick of it. All that matters atm is 2020, and it’s not looking too promising.

I don’t care about the 1-5 as much as I care about the 1, 6, 7 and 9. We’re looking like a bottom 4 side if we don’t make a signing from left field.

Brooks is going to have it all on his shoulders. Speak of the devil, it’s been literally months since i’ve seen his name written anywhere.

Loving all the conspiracy theorists. And true to conspiracies, no one can provide evidence. They provide “evidence”. Not sure what’s worse, conspiracy theories or the victim card. I guess they go hand in hand most of the time.

The press release from us announcing his signing should drop any moment now…

As soon as they came into the picture we didn’t have much of a chance.

Now you tell us!!

Still can’t believe people actually thought he might sign with us.

Imagine my embarrassment
