@VolksWagonDriver you can say a lot of things about ET, but saying he isn’t tough enough is ridiculous

RE: Win by the Storm
I can look back at the few moments of disbelief which, had they panned out differently, we probably would have gone on to win. The moment when Benji threw it to Chee Kam and he dropped it on the first, the moment mbye didn’t give it to his winger and he didn’t make it. The moment Farah threw a shocker on halfway and we were under the pump at the end. The moment Farah didn’t cover the inside (he must have been completely gassed) after Mahe ran out of the line and missed the tackle on Bromwich. It was just one of those games. After all is said and done, yeah, we should have won, but that’s footy. We had a real dig and it’s a team game. The boys are really playing like a team and giving it plenty right now. Across the board, well done Tigers. I can live with that loss. I’ll take disappointment over despair any day.
RE: Thompson rejects Penrith scum and re-signs with the Mighty Wests Tigers
How quickly so many forget all of Corey’s fantastic performances. Really happy he’s sticking around. Absolute value for money.
RE: Rumour: Tigers sign Tim Mannah for rest of 2019
You kind of have to give the guy credit. He’d be shattered but is moving on with minimal fuss. There’s a few that could learn a thing or two from the bloke about being humble.
RE: Nofo off to Manly.......?
@Zach He’ll still go down as a club great. Just not at our club. Tigers made him, Roosters claimed him. I hate watching him succeed. It makes me sick. And I really don’t get excited at all when he has a great game for NSW either such are my feelings towards him. Maybe it’s pathetic, maybe not. It’s just how it is.

Evans was born in Perth and spent time in his upbringing at Tenterfield but identifies as a Queenslander. Contracted by the Broncos, he is dreaming of a professional rugby league career.
The Maroons under-16s will have two other Gold Coast representatives in action: Thomas Dearden (Currumbin) and Stepharn Holo (Helensvale).
RE: Maguire as our coach. Ivan vs Madge
@jadtiger it’s was a gee up. But it shows that no matter who coaches, we have the same problems.
We haven’t got the right people behind the scenes. The board is the root of the problem. Lot of white anting each other.
The board has always been a massive part of the problem
Nobody in their right mind who supports the tigers would say Cleary is better than Madge. The bloke has done all he can to destroy the club.
RE: Round 9- Magic Round *SPOILERS
I occasionally want Melbourne to win a football match - very occasionally. Pretty much only when they play Brisbane. But now Im also on board when the play Parramatta because I can’t stand the slimy fart. It’s great to know that his ego would be taking a severe beating tonight. Couldn’t happen to a more worthy piece of garbage.
RE: DWZ to arrive ASAP
I don’t know, I think we all get a warm fuzzy feeling when there’s talk of a player coming to us, but really, I’d be just as comfortable and even more happy to see Thommo given the fullbacks role on a permanent basis. If it doesn’t work out come the end of this season, at least we’ve given it a real shot.
RE: SOO Game 1 *spoilers*
Wighton cops a bagging, and maybe the pass wasn’t great, but my God! NSW had nothing at all. At least he had a go at creating something. Our halves had nothing - absolutely nothing. And the coach’s rotation was a disgrace. Where the hell was Frizelle? Having Klemmer smashing out one half then off…ah forget it. Not happy. Fair dinkum, I’d have Chad Townsend before those two clowns there tonight. At least he’s average.
RE: The National Anthem
@Kev all those things you mention are valid, but monetary things. Australia day and a national anthem are distinctly different. It’s a shame so many whites can’t get a handle on the fact that the status quo is not all inclusive. Indigenous people are very much of the opposite opinion. Classic case of the vast white majority not willing to listen. I mean really listen. When in actual fact a change to both of these things wouldn’t be an issue at all.
RE: Penalty Try?
I dunno. He had one metre to run. I can’t see how he does’nt get it down.
How is this different to other ones where they still have 5m to chase and get a ball?
He landed over the line, was always gonna score. Had he not high shotted he may have been able to wrap it up. He didnt, cheekam looked dazed as he fell. Penalty try all day long unless it’s vs Melb. Donks or Cocks.
