I think this disaster has opened our eyes to how little our donation money helps those that really need it.

A lot of stories out there like TT’s sadly. Chin up mate. Hope there’s still some fight in the dog yet

@Tcat said in Wests Tigers snare teen tyro Utoikamanu...:

Being a WTs fan, it’s easy to fall into the ‘We are gonna get shafted basket’. I’m choosing to relax with the whole idea of Steph being forced to stay. He wanted to leave, it was declined and now we wait for him next year. Parra as much as I hate them have every right to keep him and if they think their chances of winning premiership are increased with him there, then what do you expect. Hopefully we smash Parra every game this year, we finish well above them on the ladder and Steph will be frothing to join WTs in 2021. My biggest worry is if he gets a serious injury before he comes to us.

It’ll be a test as to his attitude…ultimately, he’s being forced to stay at Parra…if he decides to reneg on us, then he will be forced to stay with us.

parramatta eels resign young gun stefano utoikamanu to fend off wests tigers

It’s just rubbish headline to mask the fact he was upgraded to top 30 NRL contract for duration of his current contract. No drama.

Sweet. The journo must get paid per click.

@westtigers said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

I Think we have a job to do this year and madge has a plan with all the crap Cleary left us with over payments of very ordinary footballers but we have a good lot of young guys coming through and we have to be patient and give madge a chance as ge is a good coach that we need have faith we will get there.

I hear this ‘plan’ argument a lot and I agree - Madge has a plan and I believe he knows what he’s doing. But don’t lose sight of the fact that both Madge and Pascoe Have stated that missing the top 8 is failure and thus part of the plan now is making the top 8. Not 2021, but now!

So true…and we missed out on a “franchise” player in Mitchell which would have made me more confident, but now with BJ on board, I feel it plugs a gap we were lacking in last season.

In my opinion, we’ll struggle again to make the 8. I don’t think we have the right forward balance to get us on a roll, but if Madge can get them playing to their full potential, we’ll get there.

We just can’t seem to string more than 2 wins together. If we can fix our consistency, we’ll be in with a chance.

With the Roosters weakened (Mitchell & apparently Tedesco), Bellamy’s last year and no club being hugely active in the transfer market, we’ve got as good a chance as any to scrape in.

This jersey just looks awful, but better than some of our previous 9s jerseys

Remember when we wore the AFL style jerseys?

That was the worst!

Very happy with the BJ signing now that’s it’s been reported.

He’s got a great set of hands and Noffzilla should benefit from his ability next year.

Who’s next?

If the figures are accurate, I’m not a fan of BJ for $1.8m over 3. Too much $ and for too long

Won’t be costing the tigers 1.8

With Canberra kicking in, looks more like a cost of $1.4m to the tigers over 3 years

That’s a top deal if we can get it.

Here’s one from league unlimited souths forum… take it with a grain of salt…

Titans playing hardball as you know. They want Murray AND Tom. Gags and Johnston staying. The only one leaving is Douhie to perhaps Tigers old news I know but souths will release for Packer AND Mcqueen.

Jeez…if Packer & McQueen go, we then have 2 more spots to fill.

I can’t see the cap numbers working for Souths unless it’s a lop-sided deal in their favour

I laugh at those on the forum who demand fact and evidence. NO! We are passionate supporters! WE WANT TO WIN DAMMIT! And every thought we have is based on whether a club decision brings us closer to winning or not. Irrational but passionate

Similar to the forum supporting Trump in the US Senate right now.

Wrong thread for that conversation starter mate

No, it is perfectly suited, as I was listening to the opening arguments and amendment motion whilst reading this thread and it matched the sentiment perfectly.

You’re a fanatic
