Very good post.
No matter how good you think you still are - Just. Let. Someone. Else. Have. A. Go.
... especially when the Team is failing badly.
Chapman and Roo are worse than Politicians whose prime concern is to keep their jobs.

Oh okay, more compromised than 2010-2013 drafts where GWS and Gold Coast took the bulk of first round picks. This draft is more compromised?

I have breaking news for you: were going to finish last next year as well, hence the term "period".
yeah this is the most compromised draft ever

look it up

I think I'll be handing back my gold memberships after this year. And I didn't want to do it, but the AFLW memberships are still a sign of support for Admin, so they'll probably have to go as well.
See... my thinking is, you support them no matter what. I don't want to be a fair weather supporter.

2021 is going to be another year of restrictions which means likely not much look at how the kids go. Except it'll be even worse because those kids will have the missed two years of football by the time of the draft.

A message needs to be sent, I have no other meaningful mechanism. Will still support the team on the park, just not the club financially until Fagan and most of the board are gone. I hope there's many more like me because it's our only hope of seeing change occur.

This is an interesting point, we keep hearing that this year is a compromised draft, bad year to have high picks, better trading into next year...

But you are right, if next year is the same as this year, and no reason to think it wont be at this stage, then that draft will be very hit and miss, even the year after that, even if things are back 100% as they were, you've got kids who are playing their first consistent, solid year of football since they were 14 or 15?

I don't think anyone on this forum (especially those with tens of thousands of posts), can be considered fairweather.

As stated by others, it's the only avenue we have to show displeasure.......

Emailing does nothing but get a cookie cutter response.

How many SANFL and WAFL clubs start ''recruiting'' Vic Metro and Vic Country kids?

Or vice versa how many kids move states
