    So here we are, the annual muffin fest. The Crowcast team have been practicing like crazy over the off season in preparation of this culinary extravaganza...
    [​IMG]

    Myself, NikkiNoo and macca23 will be attending this year. We may get a chance to ask questions of Fages in between servings, so now is your chance to put your 2 cents worth in. The most popular (and appropriate) questions will be put together and asked if time permits. Those submitting the most popular questions will win all the muffin bottoms from the meeting!

    So have at it - post your questions in this thread. Try not to duplicate - if some other muffin bottom loving fan has asked your question, dont ask it again changing three words, just like his post, so we can see what most people want asked.

    Deadline for questions is Sunday night 5th of Feb. Answers and muffin review will appear on the CrowCast Tuesday Night Live episode on Feb 14th, and then posted here by the end of that week.

    PS. for those who have been rolled up in the foetal position craving the return of CrowCast, we will be premiering for season 2017 on Tuesday night 31 January. More on that later in our podcast thread.

    Rules for this thread:

    1. Dont be a dick.
    2. See rule #1

    ok I will kick off some questions;
    1. When Fagan started he declared that he wanted the best football department in the business. Many supporters hence thought we were likely to see changes across the department and some aggressive recruiting of staff to fill these roles. Many have since been somewhat disappointed. Did we already have the best program? How does Fagan see the progress made in this area so far? Does he think it is the best now, some 3 years later?
    2. Mental conditioning has become a very significant part of sport and has become more significant in recent times in US sport, where clubs are hiring experts and developing entire departments focussed on this area. One prominent College coach recently said "Everyone says that sport is 90% above the shoulders, and yet we spend 95% of our time training below. Why?" What does our program look like? Would Fagan describe it is World-Leading? Industry-Leading? Is it considered an important area?

    When are we getting a new logo?
    Why did we go short on both lists?
    Do we have plan to recruit a midfielder or two if organic growth doesn't cut it?

    I could simplify all of this to one essential question- Do we have a plan?

    Because I'm not convinced we do.

    Being on social media as we are, I hate to say it but the swampies handle media both social and normal media far better than we do, are their plans to promote the club better in these areas

    In order to evaluate whether it is worth entering this competition, I need to know exactly what you mean by "muffin bottom". Is this an actual muffin derriere, or simply the paper holding a few crumbs: this is crucial. :)

    Agree on all. One thing that they'd never answer, but would be revealing I think:

    'What is the lowest level of performance that the club considers a success?'

    What will be the most significant off-field challenge facing the AFC in the next 5-10 years?

    Have another one. Probably similar to the above but for mine the above is about the challenges of a club within the league within the game. This is specifically club focused.

    It has been discussed on this board the 5 year plan presented by the Hawthorn FC and how it was a public document, does the AFC have a 5 year plan similar and is it available to the public?

    I'd like to ask Mr. Fagan two questions, 1 where is the Fyfe? and 2 give me the Fyfe.

    But seriously, with 13 of our games being night games, was this pushed by the club or simply a by factor of being more worthy of the premium time slots? I feel we almost play better in night games. Also interested in hearing the link between going short on our list and the cba.

    I'd still like to see a showdown SANFL curtain raiser to the AFL showdown

    Imagine 50,000 going at it in the stands for 8 quarters in one day

    Surely worth a trial and a great experience for the young AFL listed players playing SANFL

    SaNfL curtain raisers would be awesome. Is there any way this could work once or twice in the season?

    What is the real reason we are running a player short on the rookie list?

    Why did Barlow choose the Gold Coast over us?

    Looking back how do you rate our strategy in the Gibbs non trade?

    I went to a function many moons ago and John Reid was speaking, I asked him how arrogant the AFL was, he launched into them a bit, but that was Reid

    Can we have a Crow as a logo instead of a Velociraptor?
