Downgrade your seating and still go.Rick, respectfully, what do you propose someone in my situation does differently?
I hate our game style, I hate selection and I hate the foreboding of another crushing loss every time I attend, made worse by the fact I can't afford to buy my kids some hot chips and a drink at half time, which is the only reason they go because they don't watch the game. Packing them sandwiches and bottled water from home doesn't cut it. I've forked out for 6 memberships every year.
I've emailed Matt Richardson. I've emailed KT. I've attended member information sessions. I've voted for Board elections. I've reached out to past players and Board members on Twitter. I've had face-to-face conversations with legends of the club and willed them to help.
What more do you want me to do? I'm no longer throwing money at my club, a club that no longer cares what I think. I care for the club deeply, it's just not my club anymore. How do you propose I support? Just shut up and pay my money?
Son and I downgraded and it has cost them $230.
Make them smart in the hip pocket, but still show your face.
This is the watershed year, when our fate may be determined for the next 10 years.
I personally want to observe this situation.
If you see a cancer don't avert your eyes. You do not seem to be the sort to sit in the corner muttering, "Bad show... Bad show". Keep up the letter writing, keep up the assault on the senior management.
Perhaps you can do this on behalf of the "Quiet Australians" that our beloved national leader speaks of.
Maybe for one more year, if Hinkley gets the nod again.
If the wheels come completely off this will be the year. While we are mid table, only the stress fractures are showing.
I want to see who stands up on the field and who will become our leaders, beside Travis Boak - and in spite of pitiful coaching leadership.
