RE: That was painful!!!!!
posted in Previous Seasons Archive
I ve watched a hell of a lot more painful games than that!
As for the Robbie situation. Robbie has been one of my all time favorite Tigers (probably number 1 since the merge), however I think it is time to move on.
I don’t think Robbie’s skills suits our style, said so after round 2 before the drama on that alone isn’t enough to not pick him.
But sadly Robbie has been here too long, he loves the place and sees it as his team and as such is finding it very hard to hand over to generation next. Understandably he has been the man for so long.
Our next crack at a comp will be without Robbie, unfortunately the harsh reality in modern sport we have to move our stars on in less than fairy tale circumstances.
JT is simply taking that step to pass on to the next generation now, in the long term they will be better for the experience.
We are not going to win this year under any circumstances, so playing Robbie and maybe winning an extra game this year won’t make much difference, but giving the next generation the team now may fast track their development and bring on future success.
