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.

Never ever lose sight of that!

That's the most painful success my life has ever known, yeah, I'll still support them because I have now become immortal through all the pain, I feel nothing, it's just another disappointment that I have to endure for being a pies supporter

I love this club so much,
All I see is will we improve during the last few years.
Yes we fluked a a Grand Final in 2018.
But there is no talent coming through from our reserves.
Now compare that to say Richmond there depth is huge in terms of AFL and VFL
We are a way way long away.
That and have consistently managed to get the first round draft picks completely wrong for the last 7 years or so

I can't help but wonder how the review, its findings and the changes that were made in light of it is now regarded. The club got one year of (qualified) success out of it, and Buckley a Coach of the Year award, but it looks like the culture that was damaging player/club relations has returned.

Never been more disappointed with the club.

Stephenson could be anything, was our future and we gave him away for nothing.

Adam Treloar is a stand up guy that has played as well as you would have hoped when we signed him. To treat him the way we did makes me feel sick in my stomach so much for side by side.

Bringing in Beams for picks when we were flush with midfielders and the mismanagement of our salary cap which lead to this disastrous trade period is unfathomable. Hopfuly it leads to a cleaning out at the top of club as I don't know how some of these positions are still tenable with the stink of what just happend.

BLASPHEMY!!! :mad: :mad:

You do not label losing games as a success, how dare you even suggest that.?!

This is part of the reason why we're so sh1t as a football team, the fans accepting mediocrity.

This accepting of sh1t has to stop now!

I'm being serious here, you apologize to the rest of the Pies BF board and retract this ridiculous 'success' comment.

Success? What success? Last time I checked we do not have a flag under Buckley - that is the only success in this game.

I'll rightly request you retract this 'success' comment.

So now we've had Nathan come out and say what it really was and was pretty reflective of the media speculation. All of whom most of us bagged - myself included, as hyperbole. Clearly it wasn't.

Now there's 'well at least we know now' like it's excused, yeah for me that ain't flyin.

You just watch the sheeple go 'oh ok, now that you've owned up all is forgiven' which of course is going to lead to another half a decade or thereabouts of mediocrity.

Now we've watched yet another window out the window, f*n nother one!

Yeah not for mine, I really hope this challenging ticket gets some real noise and the club actually listens this time. Come fail or a miraculous masterstroke, whatever, this club needs a serious rocket up the ass.

Agree

regardless of on-field results to come in 2021, we need a clean out at the top.

Look I know the past is the past and what's happened can't be changed.

However, I cannot stomach it if there is no punishment that leads to tangible and positive change.

I really really hope this supposed challenging ticket gains momentum, regardless if it is obvious that the ticket does not contain any credible members.

The important bit is the club gets the message and it leads to change.

The club has just conceded (alluded to) that we're no longer in the window, well that's just f*n great yet another period of false hope out the window.

Yeah I reckon I'm done with the club for next year, come all you haters calling me 'fairweather' well at least I'm not an embicilic sheep forever willfully eating the sh*t that this club serves up.

I'll continue to come on here and criticize the club though until there is glaringly obvious and positive change. Yeah a lot of you will come out with the tired old 'sad and pathetic' well it's not as sad and pathetic as some of you on here that defend the club even after kindergarten age f*** ups. Still now some of you blindly defend! Talk about blind loyalty!

So buckle up haters, I'll be throwing as much deserved criticism at this club until the ship is righted. Because this club is in my family and I love this club. Seriously pissed off with it at the minute.

If we are doing averages, we average 1 GF win every 8.5 years in our history.

Only 1 in 23 heading into 24 with Eddie at the helm.

Where we are at at the moment is at the gates of becoming totally irrelevant.

How did this happen?.... Apathy and blind faith
which allowed:
Ed to treat the club as his fiefdom, and run roughshod over every aspect of the club.

List management to totally f**k up the salary cap that at the end of last season had us $2m over this years salary cap

Which has kept the same coaching panel intact despite only one year of improvement, no game plan, and our players regressing

Ed to create a siege mentality when any journalist asked probing questions of the club or administration.

I think bucks time is up, his coaching and style are horrible and I’m not sure he can adapt. We had the same slow boring defensive style last year, and it’s made worse this year with faster footy How many times are our defenders caught out to far up the ground on quick ball movement. Happened time and time again yest. Our zone and press ain’t working. That said, I feel sorry for him that he’s copping the blame for all of it.

This is the lowest point our club has been in since the 1990s, and I think we're only going to sink lower.

What can we do?

First and foremost, we have to get our voting rights back.

Eddie shut members out to consolidate his control ... the result of that is the rot that we're all now seeing.

We have to demand board elections and voting power for presidency.

That's the first step.

We can only have elections if there exists another ticket...there hasn’t been one for years.
No challengers...no election.
Why? Maybe the Club was well managed from 1999 until 2020?
