Suspect it is hit and miss whether anyone at AFL House and club boardroom tables can be bothered, but I'm not going to let that get me down (too much, ha ha), and will continue to promote and share new info found. Trove (up to mid-50s) and other online sources for later papers will probably confirm that previously published lists of names and positions are pretty accurate.I don't know for sure how much of those details they would keep track of, but they do still include lists of the clubs' President/Chairman and Gen. Manager/CEO from (about) 1980 onwards in the Season Guide, so they probably do wish to know of any changes to the records (even from earlier days). Perhaps somebody else knows more and can chime in?
It is the inconsistent way the history lists are handled that really bugs me !
The 2019 Season Guide has for nine of the twelve long-standing VFL clubs admin lists which start in 1980,
but for some inexplicable reason at pages for Geelong, Sydney and W Bulldogs the lists start in 1985.
The Sydney Swans website only shows honour roll since 1971 (none of Skilton's 9 B&F's shown),
and my requests to staff at the club to have that extended back to full VFL era just get ignored.
The list of long-serving club execs on Season Guide page 1208 contains at least two errors,
both of which were reported directly to the editor and history team some years ago yet remain uncorrected.
As has been noted on our spreadsheet for some months too, there are mistakes in names and dates of coaches which still remain uncorrected.
I acknowledge that some of our efforts with the research shared via this thread and similar ones have been recognised
and led to "official" corrections, but it is frustrating to see the high number on the spreadsheet that have been ignored.
