    Still believe once we can crack the top 8, with our management structures now in place, we should turn the corner.

    Warriors have signed Euan Aitkin, would’ve been a good get for the Tigers. Shame

    The poor didums haven’t been able to socialise? Damn I feel so sorry for them. That must be hard. Maybe after they get flogged again this week we can organise some coke and whores to go along with the extra cartons. That should ensure smiling faces at training next week.

    Do some checking instead of just blindly bagging the joint.

    Simple question. You love your buzz words so throw some examples at us to back them up. From what I see the joint hasn’t progressed much in years. On field results confirm that.

    Have never disagreed with anyone about the footy team not being shit.
    I think the coaches we have hired, have a lot to answer for.
    But the club (apart from the footy team) is getting everything in place to be a strong club, if you can't see that or don't want to see that then fine.

    Here comes another chance for the bastards to get our hopes up! scratch out a win against the wooden spooners, come up against the roosters who can barely field a team, get a victory or two against Manly or Souths who aren't very good and then set up a must win against Parra in the last round to get in the 8.



    Which we end up losing by 50 points

    dont believe the roosters violins in the media

    next week they get JWH, Crichton, tupou and BMoz back with Cordner and SBW a chance

    on paper their team will shit on ours

    also keep in mind for the past 10 weeks straight we have lost a player to injury/suspension every single week, often multiple players, yet no one on the media gives a shit when it’s us. So expect a few of our guys to go down on Sunday.

    In terms of which club has used the most players this season it’s Wests Tigers with a total of 31.

    They have six currently in the casualty ward and three of their stars have missed more than half the season. But that large number of players used can also be attributed in part to coach Michael Maguire’s chopping and changing of the line-up.

    TIGERS

    Players used: 31

    Debutants: 5

    Ladder position: 9th

    Current casualty ward:

    Thomas Mikaele (knee) - Round 15

    Alex Twal (sternum) - Round 15

    Zane Musgrove (foot) – Round 16-18

    Harry Grant (knee) – Round 17

    Michael Chee Kam (seizure) – Indefinite

    Billy Walters (knee) – season

    Stars who have struggled to play: Jacob Liddle (1 game), Zane Musgrove (4), Alex Twal (7)

    The only people saying the club is improving off the field is the people running the club. Its laughable.

    Membership numbers, profit/loss, sponsorships, facilities (under-construction) have all improved drastically in the last 10 years.

    Recruitment, Retention and On-Field success on the other hand....

    Thank Christ for West Ashfield
    Wests Tigers were a merged entity with joint control by the boards of Wests and Balmain. One hundred shares were issued to Balmain Tigers Rugby League Football Club and 100 shares were issued to Western Suburbs Rugby League Football Group Pty Limited as a 50/50-owned joint venture.

    On 17 September 2014, after finace problems arose at Balman, a new shareholder agreement was put into place with the supervision of the NRL. The board was reduced to seven with two from Balmain Tigers, two from Wests Leagues and three independents. On 25 September 2014, with Balmain Tigers moving into Funding Default to the Wests Tigers, the board nominees from Balmain were withdrawn and with the backing and support of the NRL a new reduced five-person board of directors was appointed, with independent Marina Go announced as the new chairman of the board.

    In 2016 it was announced that Wests Ashfield would take a 75% interest in the club. The new board had five members appointed from Wests Ashfield, two from Balmain along with two independents. In 2018, Balmain Leagues went into Voluntary administration, and in 2019 it was announced that Balmain Leagues and Wests Ashfield would merge.,

    NRL Privately Owned Clubs:

    • Canberra (100%)
    • Manly-Warringah (87%m Penn, 13% Manly)
    • Melbourne (100%)
    • South Sydney (75% Crowe/Packer, 25% Member Co.)
    • Gold Coast (100%)
    • Brisbane Broncos (100%, 67% by News Limited)
    • Melbourne Storm (100%)
    • New Zealand Warriors (100%)
    • St George Illawarra (50% WIN, 50% St George Rugby League club)
    • Wests Tigers (100% Wests Ashfield/Balmain)

    I reckon some people's expectations or outlook are wrong. I understand that everyone wants success and we've lurched from one problem to another.

    The problem is that people think they know who is too blame and that everything is wrong. One of those problems is catastrophising the situation. I mean this is a game that we watch on the weekend. It's not that big a deal. It's also not that bad. We come 9th all the time which means we are close to making the finals and close to being a competitive team.

    The next problem is when people continually blame x or y for our problems. It's not that simple. Sometimes shit just doesn't work out.

    I think our retention and recruitment has been poor but you are never going to get that 100% correct. I'm more worried about us stuffing that up and we need to be really careful with banking on any one player or whatever to turn us around. It's going to take smart management of retention and recruitment going forward.

    Personally I see getting someone like LL as the perfect example of how this club can improve. We just need more of those signings and retaining the right players.

    Cleary really f**ked up but I have no problems with those signings if the length of the deals were significantly less.

    Haha I love your contradiction inspired posts...
    You do realise your are referring to yourself every bit as much as any of us?
    Some aren’t happy with mediocrity, others aren’t as fazed. Neither are wrong.
