The players need to band together, dig deep and play for each other. The coach may leave but they have each other and all the fans and that should be the motivation to continue winning.

Whats the go with that melonhead hannah hollis saying how is panthers trying to poach Ivan any different from us ending the contracts of potter/jason taylor?

Am i the only one who thinks its completely different situations?

The difference is their results were terrible, recruitment terrible, retention terrible, created rifts within the playing group and most importantly they were both paid out. 100% agree with you both cases very different to current situation.

I’m sorry but if all the talk coming out of media circles is true and he wants out, I’d let him go however the Tigers would need be very well compensated for him to do so. Our current players aren’t going to want to play for a coach who supposedly want’s to jump ship.

I honestly don’t see the fascination in him having to or wanting to coach his son so badly. Growing up my father was my sporting coach for many years and it put a strain on our relationship.

Addressed them how? Advising it’s all rubbish or that he intends to steal the WT team bus and request everyone’s opal cards to be returned?

Just remember that for once tigers have ALL the leverage. Only incompetence from Pascoe and go could see tigers lose out here. So relax. Anyone who is offered a job would look at it. Doesn’t mean they take it. Ivan is a good man who is highly respected. And he likes that people think that of him.

SG, right or wrong I’m just disappointed at the speed with which members of this forum turned on the WT coach, all of which was based on assumption and fed by rumour. Sad really

Maybe if Ivan wasn’t sitting quiet and came out openly denied he has plans to leave then the fans wouldn’t be so willing to crucify him.

There were only single seats left in all the reserved sections over a week ago when I bough mine. If weather is clear, Robbie back, Mbye first game as a Tiger and being a 2pm match then there’s no excuse not to get 17K+

Taking my old man down for both games. Was excited to see only single seats left in reserved sections when purchasing tix however it’s all about the mighty hill. Can’t wait to tip a few tinnies.

Had a quick read on The Kennel and they’ve well and truly turned on Mbye. Doesn’t seem to matter to them that he’s only leaving because he’s being pushed to relieve cap pressure. They all seem quite happy for him to leave asap as they just want him gone.

The same fans have also offered up Woods as their sacrificial lamb to the Sharks to relieve more cap space.

They basically see both in the same light we saw Woods, Moses and Teddy when we knew they were leaving.

Some bloke on a wests tigers page on Facebook is claiming Curtis Rona has been seen training with the Tigers n claims he is friends with Curtis’ partner and she has advised him Curtis is 100% a done deal at the Tigers just in cooling off period……Anyone got anything more on this or the bloke speaking swahili?

I think the point for the draw, and then an extra point for the win in golden point is an excellent system the NRL needs to implement. Like Tarl said, we got the same amount of competition points last night as Parra did after losing by 54 and not scoring last week.

This is what they do in US with the NHL Hockey. Great idea i say.
