Tinkler screwed the Knights... Didn't Bennett get them 1 game from a grand final his 1st year there after years of mediocrity ...?

From a corporate and recruitment perspective Bennett has it over MaGuire...he has pulling power...
Spot on, Bennett could lift us up in the corporate world, as well as bring players otherwise unattainable to us. And Newy wasn't all his doing, Tinkler was a big part

Bennett also did a motivational speach at my work (before I was there I only started 6 months ago) and everyone loved him.
Seems like a cool guy

Elias is an embarrassment - to himself really - but to Wests Tigers by association (association thanks to the media)!
As much as I am bitterly disappointed by Cleary, he did not 'get rid' of Woods, Tedesco and Moses.
And to say we are a laughing stock is ridiculous.
Benny is a twat.
Nine have swooped and running with it tonite... I wish someone would shut him up permanently.
I heard a punter on a sports radio program complain about Mr rent a comment... Saying he's no WTs representative... They shut him down because they all know he's good for them... Controversy Wether it be correct or factual

Two issues with the story. Benny's isn't a "West Tigers" legend and Woods doesn't deserve his Kangaroos Jersey.
Third issue is there is a third colour associated with the Wests Tigers.
It’s time Pascoe has a chat to Benny and explains to him the differences between the two clubs I think.

Difficult one. Wests Tigers partner with men of league foundation, apparent representative for men of league foundation Benny Elias is approached for comment about whatever.

Hmmm...

Whats evident from this whole sorry saga is that the journos who are regularly accused of being loose with the truth, are not alone.

I'm starting to feel grateful towards Ivan and Gus. They are paving the way for us to pull off the biggest coup in our history. Sure he probably isn't the coach he used to be, but he's Wayne Bennett for Gods sake. His name alone will be a big attraction to potential recruits and sponsors.

Bennett isn't as great as some think he is. McGuire will do me.

I like the fact that he has said what a lot of fans have been asking...
Ivan needs to talk and clear this up and we need to punt him ASAP..

Not a fan of him myself but this will get the club to sort out sooner rather than later..

Nine news in Brisbane tonight saying Bennett has said he will be at the Broncos in 2019. So did their CEO.

Pretty sure to 99% of Australians it is Benny who is the laughing stock.The way that he was "made" by the Balmain Tigers and then absolutely ran them into the dirt financially like some blood sucking parasite was deemed a disgrace by many.

If it is Bennett on his way, hopefully he can expand upon the defensive groundwork Cleary laid at least for the first few rounds this year.

So we might actually pull off a season of strong defensive performances.

And his ability to attract more than just fringe first graders or those past their prime should help reduce the error count.

With some added sponsorship interest (all eyes on whether he can lift the Tigers to finals berths) for 3rd party agreements it all has a lot of positives to it.

Corporate speak for bennett does not want to take a pay cut and broncoes do not want to pay him.

Bet that's been heard yelled a few times around ol' Wayne's house a few times in the dead of night.
The old flog would definitely be an upgrade on BS artist Ivan.

No. I said he'd do me. See Ivan's position is untenable and I really don't like Bennett. If there were others available, I'd probably prefer to look at those, but out of Madge and Bennett, I'd pick Madge. Is Hoss available?

Let’s just hope if we get Bennett he uses his big head not his little one again.
