Getting older is not a pleasurable experience

RE: Player Dramas - Saints
I’m still yet to hear what happened to the Pamfers after they breached covid crowd numbers a month or so ago ?
More farce !
I believe the NRL talked about maybe doing something just like the Souffs Administrator and Doctor that hung out with Scummy Summy in the carpark.
what,brush it under the carpet

RE: Who Should Coach the Wests Tigers
Title thread Fixed…
Sneens as head coach for 2 years. Bring back Payton with Robbie (forwards) and Hodgson (backs) as assistants with potentially Benji as specialty halves coach. Let them develop the juniors and induct them into what it means to play for the WT means. The identity that has gone missing.
Payton has no clue
Nooo, that’s not true.
Payton gets some things, but misses others. Payton would be an awesome forwards or defensive coach.
He gets structure (I don’t know how, but he gets it). He gets how to work forwards.
He will fail at the Cows because he doesn’t get the whole team position thing. Likewise Madge, gets centers gets attack, but does not get defense or what people should be working on.
I am thinking we need 50/50 Wests tigers players and outsiders.
Sironen, Payton or Farah as our defensive coach.
Pat Richards or Hodgson as a playmaker/tricks/attack coach.
We need someone external as the halves/spine coach. We don’t get it, we never ever have.
If Cooper Cronk could be bought, for any money up to 1 million I would sign him immediately as head coach.
He gets spine, he gets structure and he gets why little things are done.
Payten should be an assistant coach at Penrith …if anyone needs to be whiteanted it’s Iv …
You realise he is coaching the Queensland Cowboys with Jonathan Thurston waiting in the wings.
Trent Barrett may mess up the Bulldogs, I suspect he is going to piss off some of the stars and trouble will start.
If the Cows don’t make the finals or at least come 9th-10th Payten won’t get a second season.
Your chosen coloured ants are already in position. (in fairness if I was the Cowboys and my team wasn’t performing it would be Payten out Thurston in.)
Thurston won’t get or want a head role as a NRL coach
Brett Hodgson,Timmy,its a dream team,
RE: Maguire post match comments insanity?
Probably not the worst of our wide array of issues but Maguire mentioned "We had Daine Laurie, Adam Doueihi, Jimmy Tamou, Luke Garner, James Roberts, there’s a number of senior players that add to what we need to do. We’ve got a number of players that with those names can steer a strong team around”.
Correct me if I’m wrong but James Roberts has been 18th man for at least 2 or 3 of the last 4 weeks and our coach is saying his absence is part of what cost us the match??? Who selects the team?
More early mad Monday madness
whats the prob
