Yeah, I was particularly interested in the thread on the Brisbane board from LoTR about trying to get your club administration to set up a video link to your AGM for Victorian members, with a 2-way camera/sound setup.
Damn good idea, and disappointing to see that the Lions admin haven't done the right thing on that issue yet...
Noticed you were intrigued by that Brisbane Strikers goss mate!
Yeah, back in the NSL's last year, I wrote a dossier about it with inside help & sent it to the Federation. That was a big factor in the rejection of the Strikers' A-League bid.
The catalogue of offences included constant crowd fiddling, total subversion of club decision-making (lots of bogus board meetings with only 2 people), most key officials chosen because they were friends/relatives of Clem Jones, security taking noisemakers off little kids, refusal to engage with the media (they didn't even bother with press releases in the last 2 NSL seasons), & rejecting a big sponsorship from Parmalat because the company wanted cash spent on advertising & PR :eek:
Before Clem took full control, it was a successful club with growing support. As I said, in 1996/7, we averaged 8,000. And set a record that year for the largest NSL GF crowd.
But as history shows, everything Clem's ever been involved in, he's turned to shite!
