it’s not about positivity or negativity, it’s about facts.
i don’t see how it’d be fair to madge/pascoe to take blame at the end of 2020 for a failure of 10 years.
the point wasn’t to hold someone accountable, it was more about the future of Wests Tigers. We seem to be doing not as bad as others off field which is what is keeping us afloat but honestly what if a 6 year old goes through his entire schooling life without seeing tigers play a finals game. i just find it sad…
…we miss the finals again in 2020?
We’ve gone through 5-6 coaches, 4-5 CEOs and 4 board chairmen and 3 different board since our last finals appearance (don’t quote me on the above, just an estimate)
Since Madge and Lee are the newer heads in their department, I guess Pascoe may be the one to take the fall but how long can we continue failing? what’s the next step, just keep cycling through the above?
what do we have to loose? i’d happily pay him whatever he wants if it increaes the chance of us getting in to the top 8.
What we could lose is our best opportunity in many years to put a good coach and team together.Spending much of our cap on someone who is essentially an outside back when our forwards are weaker than they where this year (matterson and Ben gone)Imho it is our forwards that need the upgrade mainly
if paying him >$1m a year gets us a step closer to top 8, i’ll be happy with that. honestly, dont care about long term anymore
