No matter how much criticism can be given to Momirovski, Mbye, Farah, refs and everything over the season that’s lead us to the position we’re in now it’s easy to forget that we still have a genuine chance to make finals footy and no matter the result, come out with a good result for the future.
If the team focuses and can win the next three against a mixed form Manly side we slapped in Rd 1, Knights who we played brilliantly against earlier in the season and Dragons flashbacks to Brooksy at Jubilee last year, it will set up a final game at a packed out Leichhardt to play for finals footy. Imagine that final game.
In saying this, if we make finals and lose, or don’t make finals at all, it still provides excellent opportunity for Liddle and other young guns as well as any players that fill in. Especially with a finals footy experience, it will allow these young developing players to have a taste of finals footy for the first time - and, just like a Tiger, once they have a taste of blood, they’re going to be hungry for next season…
We are a team that is more than capable of achieving this; it’s all down to support. We won’t win if there are no Tigers fans at Brookie, SCG or Campbelltown (Leichhardt will always be packed). Only way to get into finals is with fans - especially with a team lacking Robbie and Mbye so no matter if you’re planning to work, have a root, even a threesome, get a fucken ticket and watch the games - everyone knows how long we had to wait for this season and you imagine the wait until next season if we don’t make finals and have no confidence from a previous season. Get your ticket and don’t miss out - there are games everywhere from Manly to bloody Campbelltown.
Following on from my recent post about how boring and horrid this year’s jerseys are, I have designed a sick jersey that I am thinking abut ordering. I am wondering if anyone else would like one also and/or if anyone has any suggestions for designs/sponsors.
Plus I changed our logo a bit to express our feelings at ISC’s 2 min job they gave for designing our jersey.
Currently, the spirit and culture of the Wests Tigers is dying because of the horrible jerseys presented by ISC.
One of the biggest faults is the loss of orange and the loss of all round creativity. The Wests Tigers gave birth to some of the game’s legends in iconic and beautiful jerseys - the 2004 jersey that won the premiership stretching to 2015 when they lost that sense of creativity and partnered with ISC. A mainly black jersey presents us as any other team and not the Tigers. The boring nature of the jersey shows a lack of creativity and it needs to change. The heritage jersey this year was great - something slightly more interesting and something to admire as a Wests Tigers Jersey.
ISC seriously need to stop using their scaffolds when making Wests Tigers jerseys and make something truly iconic, creative and most importantly interesting that. By not using a scaffold, it means they are not able to make another boring jersey and make a Wests Tigers jersey that people actually want to buy and put on.
Heading into next season, either ISC needs to make a way more interesting and unique jersey that includes orange as the main colour to truly bring home the Wests Tigers or us as a fanbase designs the jerseys for the Wests Tigers by switching to another brand.
Without such a warm and cultured jersey, the Wests Tigers are dying and losing their sense of pride - no jersey and no fans to play for. Our team jersey needs to change and become more like the iconic Wests Tigers I used to look up to in such beautiful jerseys.
I drafted up a few concepts that I put together in a few minutes on BLK and I ask that you all try and use your creatvity to mak ethe best jerseys you can and post below. (attached below).
Please, We. Are. Dying, we need the Wests Tigers jersey back
