There’s always that quick drop away for people.Worth considering that when Harry Curtis ended his time as President after 26 years and six Premierships it was under very bitter and acrimonious circumstances. These things can turn quickly no matter how beloved the person is.
As recently as around eight months ago many folks were openly questioning whether Ed was past his used-by date - there’d been a gradual slide down the ladder, poor performance by all our teams, and a few public gaffes. Ed is fortunate that the review has been successful (so far) because if our fortunes hadn’t changed then it wouldn’t just be Nathan Buckley who would have been turfed out on his ear.
When the tide comes, it takes no prisoners...
Ed is a seasoned (football) politician and he just has to ensure he sidesteps real dumbness on his part, to give the Curtis record a big whack, and then some.
