Didn’t know Whiting was sacked.I'm guessing the AFL sacking Whiting and then only temporarily (it would seem) re-hiring has impacted any information coming out of the club.
Maybe they'll start doing the Roar Deal again when the AFLW is back and give us some info on the AFL mens
I think he got sacked early on last season before getting re-hiring temp during that season due to the AFL Bubble in QLD.Didn’t know Whiting was sacked.
Last I heard/read was he was on holidays.
I'm guessing you really didn't read my entire post. I did say that the decision to funnel resources away for fan-focused social media and towards sponsors-focused content was a different matter. And it's a decision that on the surface I don't agree with.Surely if it is good enough for 17 other clubs, then it should be for ours too i.e. reserves reports, or does the market research support the notion that the Lions fans are so fickle that they don't want reserves reports (which an assistant such as Zane Littlejohn or Mitch Hahn or whoever could get in front of a camera as they used to do for 5 mins and just give us an update).
IMO, if the club or the people within it are so out of touch with pretty much every other team sport's engagement of fans around the world, then they should really be stepping aside as they obviously aren't fit to do the job.
I know the club is generally full of excuses but this one just won't wash. Given Patty K's inside knowledge of the club, he even admitted the club was only interested in building content / social media that benefits the club's sponsors. If that is really the case, then the club really has lost touch.
He is back full time with afl.comI think he got sacked early on last season before getting re-hiring temp during that season due to the AFL Bubble in QLD.
I don't know though if he got re-hired for the upcoming 2021 season but I hope he is cause he is such a good writer for football news in QLD for Lions & Suns.
Actually I think most on here would be aligned with Quigley. Who’s training well who’s not, what positions they’re are in etc. more football related please.I think he's suggesting you're an exception, not the rule, which I think you'd acknowledge is likely to be the case.
Not to mention the Lions Tale (club paper that was sent out to members once per month) and Season Guide's and Post Season Magazines that the club produced and sent out to Members each year up until about the late 2000's. I still have every single one, no idea what I'll ever do with them, but you're right, the content back in the late 90's and early 00's was excellent.Regardless, I think it's hard to argue that everything is fine when fans arguably had more insight and access to the club 20 years ago in the premiership era (through regular newspaper columns to start with, and on top of that a Lions-dedicated weekend show on Channel Ten) than we do in 2021. This is despite the fact that awareness of the importance of engagement has risen exponentially and avenues to foster engagement have too in that time.
I think this is fine for general discussions about the club as a whole during the off-season, but I've created https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/2021-training-reports.1253638/ for concrete reports from training.Should we rename or start a new preseason thread?
Most other clubs only run 2k’rs these days I think so unless they go back to 3k then you r right.Alright, the club HAS to publish the time, because no other club tt champion will ever come close.
Probably right with that statement.....maybe they will get it right one day if they identify social media as important. With the barrage of criticism on this forum they are obviously not giving some of its members what they want. Maybe someone from the club reads Big Footy and could deliver a message back to the people who have the power to change things for the better.....OR.....maybe not.You mean the club doesn't do shyt because it is run by Dinosaurs lacking basic 21st century media savvy.
We use to have a Lions_Insider poster but sadly that disappeared along with insights those around here absolutely appreciated and enjoyed. Unless Lions_Insider is masquerading as Mighty Lions....Probably right with that statement.....maybe they will get it right one day if they identify social media as important. With the barrage of criticism on this forum they are obviously not giving some of its members what they want. Maybe someone from the club reads Big Footy and could deliver a message back to the people who have the power to change things for the better.....OR.....maybe not.
