If Cleary wants 5 leaders in the dressing room, that’s fine. But why not name one as a figurehead to the public? This gives the impression that he’s indesicive or doesn’t want to upset the apple cart.
I'm going to have to trust Cleary on this one. But I would 100% agree with GNR. I kind of can't believe they went down this path. Anyways, it is the Tigers! :shock:
Heaps of clubs have done it. I think it’s a first for the Tigers. I would prefer one captain but I can see why we have done the co-captains this year.
in Ivan we distrust

Storm did this in 2006 and rabbits in 2012 both made the top 4.

Yeah, I understand that. And reading that Melbourne had done it a little while back was kind of the saving grace to the story for me. And i gotta say I was all over ET being the captain, but as time went on and I read other peoples opinions I started to feel Reynolds or Lawrence were the best fit. In the end I was a little confused on which way to go. I got a feeling Ivan might have been in the same boat. But choosing a dedicated mouth piece for the club should have been a no brainer. I trust in Ivan so let season 2018 roll on!

5 Co-Captains?

That's just embarrassing!
How ? Or Why ?

Its not like Captains make that many decisions in a club but they have a lot of jobs. Ive never understood 1 captain in a professional club

I know you like to drink the WT cool-aid but even you must understand why one leader is important in a team sport right?A bus has one driver. Not only do we now need all these new players to gel but we are relying on all 5 skippers to be on the same page??? just stupid.

I was worried when i saw the team list for the trial and it smacked me in the face of how lacking Wests are in many areas. This now has added to my worries. Its embarrassing and completely out of sinc in what we are told that no one player is bigger than the club. The only possible reason to have 5 captains would be to appease someone who feels they should have it. luckily the chances of finals are slim so we wont have to have the embarrassment of 5 WT in the captains of finals team photo.

And in what "many areas" would we be lacking?

Well if we had the following as captains all would be sweet in the speech department
Milne c

Mclwrick c
Matalino c
McQueen c
That's 5 M . C's in the team
Anyone of them could give a speech

Anyone not on board with Lawrence and Marshall as co-captains, please hand in your bus pass now. They are two club legends.

What I find embarrassing is you saying "our chances of finals are slim" - without a ball even being kicked.

How about a bit of positivity - that would go further than one captain. Just saying!

I like it

everything is still all up in the air in terms of its a whole new squad and unsure whos going to be playing etc and right now there obviously isn't any one person who is a good fit for captain over everyone else

Worst thing we did was give woods captaincy when there wasnt really any good single choice, halatau and lawrence were the other choices but werent guaranteed game time

Pretty confident towards the end of the season it will work itself out anyway and will become more clear who should be the captain

Well after actually reading the article again the 5 players mentioned are the Leadership group which all Clubs have it's nothing new...they are the right choices..Sharing around the media responsibilities is nothing new either..

There will only be 1 on-field Captian maybe Co but that's about it...

Nothing like a headline to get Wests Tigers fans off chops tho.. :lol: :lol:

It says Cleary has named 5 leaders “tasked with sharing captaincy duties”.

Can’t see where it says there will be only one on field captain, or even who it will be.

The Roosters have only named One captain for Round One. Surely we are now favourites with 5 Captains against one.
in Ivan we distrust
