Problem was the wrong candidates where running. Nothing against them but you can not replace the two football operations people on the board with two that have no real football department experience. Hope the nominate again next time around when some of the non football directors are up. Different story then. To make a decent challenge you need a platform to run on and that would include having an experienced footy person on your ticket.

Exactly because when i looked at the two other candidates, their lack of experience and no real clear reason for getting elected stood out.

We needed candidates that brought something to the club and they just didn't give that impression.
