I just wanted to make a post, I have alot of emotions going through. As a kid I used to go watch Magpies games with my dad and I liked it but it wasn’t exciting. I then followed Wests Tigers. Same deal. But it was when this guy came in, Benji, he was like Jordan to me. He made my love for the whole game go up so much. I have so much love for him. Like Jordan, he took a team considered constant duds and they got a premiership. He is extremely likeable to me. He was a breath of fresh air. It’s hard to know he is going, and i wonder if I will ever like a player so much again, its hard to imagine.
I LOVE YOU BENJI!!!
End of the day Benji and Robbie were largely responsible for all successes we’ve had in our entire club history so far. Hopefully time for new successes with new players!! Surely there is a thread to discuss your anger to him elsewhere. I just want to read juicy signing goss here. C’mon JAC come home baby
This is so embarrassing. The posts in here. I’m about done with this forum. I just come to talk Tigers, there is so much casual racism. I try to refrain from responding. So maybe I should just not come here, which is a shame, because I do enjoy many of the other posts and discussion.
i honestly think re-building around promising juniors is a better way to go than signing ‘band-aid’ solutions like Milf. Invest in the future because i can’t see success in the next 1-2 years. Similar to the way we were building with Benj; Robbie; Fulton; et al in 03/04 and then teddy; moses; brooks et al a few years ago.
I’m sorry I can’t really see how building promising juniors like Tedesco, Moses, Woods etc helped us at all. Farah And Benji are the only real junior stars that have stuck around IMO. And that was a long time ago. Can’t expect developing a player is really going to help based on recent history. It’s still worth doing, but can’t rely on that. Gotta make some astute signings that are ready to go now IMO. A combination of signings and juniors.
True. Tamou and Fox is probably the best possible result we could hope for until we release Reynolds Mbye and Packer. Not the best result, but the best result under restraints we have.
Once we release those guys, then get a damaging fast forward we badly need. Martin Tapau was killing it last night. Its those kinda players we miss!
Another year of 9th-10th same as always won’t be a success for me. I understand your point totally, there are reasons why its positive, I get it, but I am hoping for a new story before the decade comes to an end! Happy to make finals and get flogged first game no problem. I will be pretty upset if we lose next week. It will be an incredibly hard game. Two teams same points both desperate to make finals. So whoever wins will truly deserve it I suppose.
At least, no matter what, WE BEAT PANTHERS!!! Who were destined for finals success before the start of the season
Disgruntled Weststigers players…
Funny how Nofa is so happy…
One of the highest paid wingers in the comp? Yep.
No finals, no defense, same stuff each year…but tries hard. Yep.
Of course he is happy. He is on almost the same coin as both roosters centers and much more than the roosters wingers…
Geez! EH talk about taking a positive and turning it into negative…And hey! that was really nice of the chooks and Nofo to share their contractual finances with you…Good to know your in know
Not turning into a negative…just that we have had a trend for a long time now of average players loving the place and elite players fleeing as soon as they can.
That is not even disputable. I would just like to hear matterson himself actually speak on it al before I judge. No one can doubt he put in massively in the field. So, lets hear from him.
Chris McQueen… on 400 to do nothing…taking shots was a bit rich IMO.
I agree. Why do all the exciting players leave pretty quickly. It happens alot. I know sometimes it can be unrelated situations…but at the end of the day. Any ‘star’ has been very happy to leave.
