RE: Tim Sheens' payout could cost Tigers up to $1.5 million
posted in Wests Tigers Discussion
The Tigers biggest mistake apart from not paying Sheens his salary was allowing him to walk around free of charge.
I would have made him coach Jersey Flegg at least and would have demanded he relinguish the Aust coaching job. After all the tigers are his primary coaching job, regardless of whether he was terminated. If he was under contract then financially we are obliged to pay him but we certainly can demand certain things from him as well.
Situation mismanaged and poorly handled by Mgmt.
Now this is all speculation, but as I understand it: WT offered Sheens new roles within the club after sacking him as coach. He refused them all and walked.
If this is the case, we made the right decision. If we just stopped paying him for no reason, then it was poor management for sure.
