Has Valandys ruined the game?
80 points in the Manly v Titans game, 82 points in the Tigers v Storm game, blowout scores every weekend. Has Valandys and his rule changes ruined the game ?…he says he wants to introduce more entertainment in the game, I don’t think so. I preferred the tight close games of the past years….the current game has become glorified touch…
Yep, something has to change......
My two sons and I have held Gold Memberships for 10 years now…there was a time when we’d get upset when a try was scored against us, there was a time when we’d get upset after a loss, there was a time when we’d cheer a line break and high five a WT try, every year we had hope we’d make the semis and being members we’d get first dibs at buying semifinal tickets…for 10 years we never experienced this privilege, for 10 years we attended each game with hope and displayed passion as WT members…
Today we attended our first membership game at BankWest…it was noticeable the 3 of us sat there mostly emotionless throughout the game, we were happy we scored a fluky try and were in front, but did we get off our seats like we used tooo?..no…it was like we expected a pending…manly try fest…when our woeful defence allowed 3 try’s in 5 minutes, not one display of anger or emotion, it was like we knew it was coming…we sat through the game emotionless as manly piled on the points whilst the tigers looked rudderless and clueless…
With 6 minutes to go, I asked the boys if they’d had enough, they nodded yes and off we went… walking out of the stadium I was asking myself , will I renew my membership for 2022, on what we’ve seen lately, the Tigers I’m afraid will have to earn my hard earned next year, No more buying memberships blindly on hope…like Madge keeps saying it’s a results driven business and until the Tigers show results (making the semis), I’ll be a casual supporter…something has to change at the WT, I’m not sure what, but it’s time they walked the talk!..
oh for a return to the days when I was a passionate supporter…I hope the hierarchy of the WT read this post!
RE: Lawrence to weigh up future after ruling out Super League move
I like Chris as our 14-17…can cover back row and centre if required…give him a spot in the 30, he won’t break the bank
RE: Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion
@Tcat I have a connection with someone who works for the Roosters, he told me last night its “as good as done”.
They are working out the finer points of his WT contract and the release from his 2020 year of the Roosters contract.
As this will be our biggest ever signing, the WT marketing Dept are working overtime to make the most out of this when its formally announced…They are in no hurry to announce this and are keen to “get it right”
RE: Once a game manager took over...
Benji was a huge letdown tonight. His head wasn’t in it and I thought he was trying to get suspended but didn’t know how. I had uncharitable thoughts (ban avoidance) when he kicked on the third.
When we had a full spine (albeit two were hookers) we suddenly looked great.
Benji vindicated the clubs decision tonight…Benji retire mate, don’t ruin your legacy by playing reserve grade elsewhere…
The "It's not my fault look"....
Anyone else notice how whenever the opposition scores a try down BJ and Nofo’s side (and its most BJ’s fault) BJ always gives Nofo a WTF look?. as if he is saying to him its your fault!..
BJ’s defense has been terrible this year, arm grabs, exposes his winger to 2 on 1 situations…seriously unless he fixes this next year I cant see Madge keeping him in the Team, it will be off to join the Packer and Reynolds cheer squad on the sidelines…Oh dear how long before we have a decent team!!

RE: Madge Maguire - Mega Thread
Not sure if posted already but interesting to see the future captains opinion
That makes me question him as a future captain. Shows a lack of maturity.
What it shows to me is that the players back the coach and have little respect for management.
I have started liking them again.
One player we like. I’m sure there’s some white ants.
So its ok to white ant as long as he is white anting someone who you don’t like?
He didn’t address anyone specifically. He supported his head coach.
By agreeing with someone being critical of the management, I have had jobs where I would be heavily disciplined for that.
Lee H was critical of management yesterday. The joint leaks like sieve.
It has been for years…that is our biggest Achilles heel as a club
RE: Spudd as defence coach?
Apart from Spud liking the sound of his own voice…he’s more from a run hard tackle harder than the opposition type…yes we need a lot of that as well…a motivator … as a tactician in the modern game with structures and patterns…not so much…
You only have to look at his commentary on KOE Cup…I just told em to get in there and belt it up…before the game
Well yeah, doesn’t mean he can’t value add to our squad and bring on the younger forwards
I remember him recounting last year a conversation he had with Russell Packer, after a reserve grade match, where he offered a few ideas that might help him.
Apparently Rusty said something along the lines of 'Thanks anyway, but I know what I ‘m doing’.
Spud replied … ‘You’re in reserve grade, mate’.
Easy money. He knew what he was doing alright.
Russell Packer has an MBA, he surely practiced what he learnt on us… $3m over 4 years and we were lucky if he excelled in more than 4 games….he dudded us big time and his bank balance thanks us
RE: Madge Maguire - Mega Thread
So who do we reckon we are going to get with this $1.5 mil we have sitting around, what outstanding recruits are out there? More importantly will it be Madges choices or will it be Hartigan and Sheens. I don’t see anyone that’s going to make a difference busting down the doors, one can only hope we just don’t repeat the same dumb knee jerk signings we always do.
Taraq Sims, Adam Elliot and Curtis Scott…we should be able to snag all 3 for cut price short term deals….keep JTJ
RE: What has happened to the WTF?
What had happened to this place?
This use to be a peaceful social forum full of insight and interesting debates.
If you listened closely you could pick up the occasional insider tip.
Now it is overrun by either Trolls or Big-shot know it all’s.
We are all fans of this great club.
We do love the club and in most cases are mystified by the moves currently made by management, coaches and players, most agree that change is necessary and the debate brings out all facets of the topic.
But please play the ball not the man.
15 years ago this was the best fan forum in the NRL…over time, particularly the last 5-8 years “regulars” have moved on and the site has lost what it once had…there are still a few of us “old heads” still around even if under a different handle name.
