@Telltails said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

You can’t target Woods,Tedesco, Moses and attack them personally for their decisions without acknowledging that our club was not run in a professional manner in any shape or form and every player in the game knew it - and none better than them. They could have all stayed and taken the money offered, but as we have seen with other players money is not enough to lure/keep players who want more from the game. The club needed to change what was happening off the field, and we are suffering still for that, far more than any decisions Teddy Woods or Moses made in regard to what they believed was best for them at the time.

G’day @Telltails : re your “The club needed to change what was happening off the field”. I 100% agree with you. When I said it though, I was labelled a troublemaker.

@Ponyo
@innsaneink
@Spartan117
@swag_tiger
@happy_tiger

G’day @Demps : A special shout out to you as well mate, and I gotta say I agree with you re your heavy hitters list. I would add a couple more if I was doing the list though.

But at this time of the year I want to make “Special Shout out” to all who are alone and/or lonely.

Also to those that have unfortunately lost a family member or close friend at this special time of the year.

Please take some comfort in knowing all our forumers that read this will have a special place in our hearts ♥ and thoughts 🤔👍 for all of you.

I dont care what anyone says. Any orange on a Wests Magpies jersey is offensive and wrong.

Good for you @shane2801 : I’m not gonna go quite that far though.

I reckon the Victa jerseys are very acceptable, but the Brydens Lawyers jersey has a bit too much orange and would look much better if the orange chevron was the same thickness as the white chevrons.

It’s really good to see someone mention the Mighty Magpies for a change.

I know you wont see this has you have put me on foe but I have to comment anyway, that is the Wests Tigers jersey you are complaining about because it has too much orange on it. The reason you put me on foe was because I called you out when you let your Magpies bias effect your posts, well you did it again!

It took every ounce of self control not to unload on him. I hate personal attacks so I won’t do it but he is a very divisive character. Only wears black and white goggles. Sad really

Goodness me @Tiger_Steve You do get your knickers in a knot don’t you!!!
and I do admire your self control.
I don’t see anything wrong with what I have already stated and certainly wont take it back as I dont believe I “only wears black and white goggles”, but I do like the thought, so thank you.
What I didn’t say at the time [probably a bit of alzheimers creeping in] was that I do actually like the orange jumpers in the same photo.
The jerseys I like much better overall though are the Addidas jerseys put forward
by a poster? some time ago.
Have a Very Happy Christmas Steve
✡ 🎅 🎇

Yep I can get emotional sometimes because I want our club, WestsTigers, to thrive.
I think you often post stuff that is divisive regarding Tigers vs Magpies. Maybe I’m wrong.
Merry Christmas to you as well. Maybe we can share a drink one day at Campbelltown… and Leichhardt!!

RE your post in the Wests Tigers Pathways Alignment:-

…and Homebush and Bank West and, and, and…🤣
That’s a lovely post Steve, thank you.
You sound like a very reasonable and thinking person Steve, so please believe me when I say I want ‘nothing more’ than to see Our “Wests Tigers Pathways” to converge and align.
I have tried to convince another old fossil [as I am, not you Steve] on here of this for some time now, but I’m sorry to say his mind is not as open as yours to my honest thoughts and feelings, and takes what I say as threatening his beloved Balmain Tigers/Wests Tigers, which is simply not my intention, and that’s fair dinkum 👍 .

@Ponyo said in What song are you listening to right now?:

G’day @Ponyo: you’re obviously a heck of a lot younger than I am to be groovin with this kinda music.
I’ve gotta go with something from my young days like… “The Beatles”…“Come Together” and I mean it in a most deep and meaningful way for Our Wests Tigers this Holy and festive season.
Ahhhh…I feel so much Love since re-appearing from my forced hiatus Ponyo.
So I wish for you to have a Very Happy and safe Christmas 🎄🎅

@old_man_tiger said in Promising Juniors:

Nice to have some prospects.
You can see the evolution of our strategy from trying to develop our own talent, to ignoring youth altogether after the last batch failed or left. Now we develop some, but more importantly buy the best we can young enough off others to get them into our system pre NRL.

It seems we have finally learnt a lesson, not only from our own failures but also from the success of others.

Very well said @old_man_tiger : there seems to be a lot of positive feelings from a lot of positive posters atm.

What’s with all the deleted posts? I mean I’m all for the mods ensuring a certain standard on here, but if you want to start deleting any post that isn’t slightly on track or is slightly amusing then there’s not going to be much on here. I’ve seen post with personal bagging or having a crack on spelling etc and that gets let go. Mods, can i ask what criteria you have for deleting posts? or does this depend on how picky you are each day?

Discretionary. Off topic posts are generally tolerated unless they overrun a thread. Personal insults are generally deleted, if they are still here they have been missed.

If you have concerns about posts that have been left, feel free to report them.

G’day @Cultured_Bogan I second what @Tcat said re “I’m all for mods ensuring a certain standard on here” but please explain what “Off topic posts are generally tolerated unless they overrun a thread” from your post means.

I have had many of my posts deleted which have contained no swearing or put downs.

Three of those deleted posts were welcoming new members to our Wests Tigers Forum, and I believe I was friendly and welcoming in my wording.

A post of mine in this thread in support of @Strongee was deleted as well as his post, and again I believe neither his or my post warranted deletion.

You rarely stick to a topic which is why your posts get deleted.

G’day @willow: with the greatest respect to you as the founder of the Wests Tigers Forum, you apparently feel my 3 well worded and friendly ‘welcome to our Wests Tigers Forum’ posts as well as my post in support of @Strongee in the Josh Reynolds Charged thread which as you say I “rarely stick to a topic” being the reason for deletion…need to be deleted more than the 4 pages of mostly complete rubbish in the 3 Way trade-DONE DEAL thread, as well as the rubbish posts in the Josh Reynolds Charged thread that still haven’t been deleted.

I’m sorry to say this…but I feel there is a lack of consistency here.
