I read that article, and as the op it explains why I created this thread in the first place. Even living in Perth, and there are a lot of the the Pie faithful here that I know and I also know a plethora of fans and members in my home state of Vic.This article from the Roar site...
Our club is an old boys place that is dying and the definition of insanity...
Having written a number of pieces for The Roar, have you become aware that I like to yell at clouds? Would you be surprised to learn I do this because Collingwood constantly troubles me? Would you be shocked to hear me tell you that since the 2018 grand final they’ve gone backwards? And that...www.theroar.com.au
Well, maybe I do care who's on the ticket - you'd think that with our vast supporter base, there would be enough people that have the required skillset to perform the roles of the Board.There's word of a challenge to the current administration, this is off the back of callers to radio stations mentioning an assembled challenging ticket.
Keen to hear this out.There's word of a challenge to the current administration, this is off the back of callers to radio stations mentioning an assembled challenging ticket.
In the meantime, on face value we aren't in contention anymore. So yeah ok maybe some player issues and cap issues have been fixed BUT we haven't improved the list, it's regressed. So that leaves us with only internal improvement to hang any hope on, going on the last two years AND with the exit of Boyd and Longmuir that is highly highly unlikely!There is a lot of he said/she said flying around ATM around the off field stuff, and whether players wanted AT and JS to go or stay etc. We probably won't ever know the full truth of that stuff. But we will get an idea in due course because if there is any disharmony between the players or between the players as a collective and the club that will become obvious between now and next season I would think.
What's most important to me and probably you and probably the other million or so fans is that the club is run properly and gives ourselves the best chances of the end game.Well, maybe I do care who's on the ticket - you'd think that with our vast supporter base, there would be enough people that have the required skillset to perform the roles of the Board.
The most important bit is that the club gets the message and acts on it, if they don't and continue with the no explanation / deflection approach it will only drive the challenge sentiment.Keen to hear this out.
Need this ticket to be actually good, can’t just be anyone - if it is, wowee, we are on here
Yes it is, but it is so far from likely it's not funny, have a look around at the contending teams, is our 22 anywhere near that? If you think that then that is beyond optimism, that is hope in desperation. Same for RendellMatt just called a spade a spade.
Best 22 is good enough to win a flag with game plan changes
we will have loads of cap next year
players out don’t hurt that much
we will be big players in the draft
I agree, shouldn't have got to this in the first place. We don't even need a challenging ticket, what we need is to send a rocket up the clubs ass to actually make some positive moves for the end game.Let’s hope it’s a high quality ticket, with experienced people. Competition is a good thing.
Last thing we need is a nuffie ticket.
I voted undecided, because there are positives and negatives. Just off the top of my head.I agree, shouldn't have got to this in the first place. We don't even need a challenging ticket, what we need is to send a rocket up the clubs ass to actually make some positive moves for the end game.
Shouldn't have got to this in the first place, very disappointed, frustrated and angry. Not happy Spin.
I have a request for you, would you please vote on this thread? And if possible give your reasons for your answer? I would like to get your view.
Thanks spinny, much appreciated mate - I know we have our differences but we want the same thing. Flags.I voted undecided, because there are positives and negatives. Just off the top of my head.
- I think we have retained our guns, and teams need match winners
- our results against the best teams suggest we have a capable list - Rich has beaten us once in 4 games.
- a fast game plan makes us very dangerous
- we have a war chest to spend next year
- morale: I’m concerned losing loved assistants will impact the group
- It maybe the case Stevo was actually given every chance to reform - but if not, we should have let him grovel to stay and then given him a last opportunity for redemption
- no genuine high quality successors to Eddie
- Guy is not inspiring confidence- unless we get Phillips and Reef, in which case he will be forgiven. But it’s a 200-1 shot.
No it’s not, it’s just a fluff piece to evoke more emotions from us, making 44 GF at an average of a GF every 2.8 years is why we are the biggest & most famous- yeah flags is what it about but it’s still success.Sadly, every word is true.
