Re: Open Letter To The Board

Why would you expect a reply from Peter Tom? He just sees you as "a bunch of keyboard warriors". As supporters, we just don't count. Never have, never will.

Re: How much pain....... Tiger in Exeter

Who should take responsibility for this shambles? It can only be the Board and particularly Peter Tom as Executive Chairman. If this was a commercially run organisation with real shareholders holding tradeable shares he would have been asked by the investors to resign long ago. Instead, he still hol...

Re: Borthwick arrival

Don't forget that nothing has changed above the DoR. The club hasn't been sold with the almost certain guarantee of a new Board. Peter Tom is still Executive Chairman, Simon Cohen is still CEO, the Board hasn't changed; indeed Tom has strengthened his position with the appointment of one of his cro...

Re: Good job Burns has left Bath...

Spot on; absolutely disgusted the way Burns, Slater and Mauger treated by Tigers hierarchy. Freddie was especially impressive in that he gave his all for the rest of the season after being jettisoned for Ford. And still Tom and Cohen are at the club despite our being extremely fortunate not to be re...

Re: Will anyone want to buy the club??

I've heard many rumours that offers have been placed with the club but been rejected as not meeting the price PT wants. To be honest, with the results as they are, and the crowd figures going south, PT will be lucky to get anything for the club. If Tigers were listed on the stock exchange, their pr...

Re: Where's Geordie?

We have changed coaches, we have changed players. There is however one constant during our 6-7 year decline, the chairman and chief exec. Sometimes a correlation does reveal the cause. There is absolutely no point in calling for the sacking of Geordie because his replacement will be chosen the same...

Re: Premiership Round 1 - Worcester vs Tigers

I haven't seen the match, do I need to be worried about our performance or are we just back to the same stage as we were last year albeit with the new signings not seeming to make much of an improvement? Well, we're second bottom so that does feel a bit familiar. Murphy is saying in the Mercury tha...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Peter Tom interview in The Daily Wail: “It has been a pretty terrible two years on the pitch, we have not been disadvantaged by finances, but have made some mistakes and have deserved a kicking as a board at times.” And how many people accused those of us who said it at the time of disloyalty and n...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

As a shareholder, will I get a vote???? Don't think so as the idea didn't come to the minions but would be interested in how much our stadium and surrounding land is actually worth on the open market. I await the outcome with interest. Won't make any difference to the playing budget but may fund fu...

Re: Peter Tom - retirement from Breedon

Hi Alandrin I can see where you're coming from but have to disagree. PT is Executive Chairman (not honorary) and the buck stops with him. If he was too busy running Breedon, then he should have either resigned as Tigers' Chairman or got somebody to act for him whom he could trust. As Tigers' malaise...

Re: Peter Tom - retirement from Breedon

I don't want to burst the bubble of congratulations to Peter on his retirement from Breedon but the possibility of his spending more time at Tigers fills me full of dread. If you agree that the two most important people in a club are the owner/chairmand and DoR/Head coach, then he has been an absolu...

Re: Rugby Paper article

The former lawyer Mr Cohen really is the very worst of 'bob and weave' merchants. He is CEO, yet nothing is his responsibility, apart from the successes of the past (when he wasn't CEO). Every time he communicates with the media he brings up the issue of abuse in the social media. I feel sorry for ...
