that doesn’t even make sense. The report is no defence to any legal allegationsThe club was pretty much forced into commissioning the report, after Lumumba threatened to sue the pants off the club.
Maths not your strong suit huh? They supposedly received it on December 17thThe report was delivered last December. They obviously didn't like what they read, or at the very least didn't find it edifying, because they sat on it for 3 months.
why the persistent need to invent fictional narratives, events and motivations?Presumably the leak came from someone who was disgusted at the club's lack of action on the report. They gave the club 3 months to respond, or release it, before finally taking unilateral action after the club continued to keep it hidden for so long.
After waiting so long, it was great when the Club finally told its side of the story wasn’t it?Are the AFC without blame? Almost certainly not. However, Collingwood have been the clear clubhouse leader for racist fans, leadership, and general failures. There really is no comparison between the two.
Recommendation 9 is interesting. So gonna have quotas on their playing list?The CFC DO BETTER REPORT is an independent review that challenges Collingwood to take a leadership position in Australian sport by confronting racismwww.collingwoodfc.com.au
The report has been released, I’ve even copied the link in this thread.
how many people, so certain of what it is says have even bothered to read it?
some of the biggest mouths clearly haven’t but who actually has read it
Did you read the body of the report, or just the recommendation? This paragraph is pretty clear to me:that’s a bit of a stretch. they only talk about valuing diversity, which is a bit fluffy
and that changes what I said how?Did you read the body of the report, or just the recommendation? This paragraph is pretty clear to me:
An employment strategy is currently being developed but it needs to be given high priority by the Board. The strategy must emphasise the importance of diversity within the Club and set goals or KPIs so progress is measured. In addition to diversity in Board membership and administrative staff, consideration needs to be given to diversity amongst the players group and on the coaching staff.
and?“set goals or KPIs so progress is measured”
I don’t think it’s “a bit of a stretch” to conclude from all that that there could exist quotas or KPIs around diversity in hard number form. Especially considering they don’t have a single indigenous player nor coach in their squad (granted I don’t know much about their 2020 draftees)and?
they’ll be looking to measure progress of their consideration will they?
progress for unspecified targets, over unspecified times, that do not even have a definition beyond appreciation of benefits of diversity
that’s just boilerplate verbiage, cut paste stuff.
you’ve tried to interpret meaning into it that just isn’t there.
look at what is actually said:
“develop a strategy” mmm... strategy.
“KPI’s to measure progress” mmm... KPI’s
“Consideration” mmm... consideration. Best not go too fast
as I said, the main benefit of the report is that it exists. It’s an important first step
Well, what's your target diversity score, and how do you calculate it first?
I don’t have much trouble imagining you believe all sorts of stuffI don’t think it’s “a bit of a stretch” to conclude from all that that there could exist quotas or KPIs around diversity in hard number form. Especially considering they don’t have a single indigenous player nor coach in their squad (granted I don’t know much about their 2020 draftees)
It was in a report regarding racism issues in the Collingwood Football Club. I'm going to take a stab in thinking that diversity in that context, refers to diversity in race.I don’t have much trouble imagining you believe all sorts of stuff
but seeing as you think diversity is a term with clear meaning, then the sky is the limit
anyway, you read something that wasn’t there and now you’re arguing afraid you’ll look dumb if you concede
too late, and I’m bored teaching you the basic concepts of your own argument
How?I blindly support Adam Goodes so I don’t have to worry if I’m a good person, sounds an awful lot like “Zaha spoke for us”
