Wests Tigers fans haven't taken the news that James Tedesco and Aaron Woods are leaving the club particularly well.
Multiple media outlets are reporting that Woods has agreed to join the Bulldogs next year, while Tedesco will be heading to the Roosters.
MASSIVE MOVES: Foran, Woods to Bulldogs, Tedesco to Roosters
Tedesco was also reportedly heading to the Bulldogs before back-flipping and agreeing to join the Roosters.
The Tigers are set to lose three of their so-called "big four" at the end of the year, after Mitchell Moses signed a three-year deal to join Parramatta.
The only other member of the quarter to re-sign is Luke Brooks, and fans are understandably fuming:

The off-contract players have previously said they wanted some stability in the coaching ranks before deciding whether to re-sign or not.
However the sacking of Jason Taylor and subsequent signing of Ivan Cleary doesn't appear to have worked.
When he took over as coach a fortnight ago, Cleary sent a thinly veiled message to his off-contract stars when he said everyone needed to "get on the bus".
It was a message he reiterated on Thursday when he revealed that two days earlier, he had told player manager Isaac Moses, who represents both Tedesco and Woods, that they could take the offer or leave it.
The next day, incumbent NSW fullback Tedesco was linked with the Roosters and skipper Woods was photographed having coffee with several Canterbury players.
