I hope the club lays off the promotion of Nicks as a good bloke trying to build relationships, we get it.

Footage of him talking to McAsey’s parents, Schoenberg coming into his office “this is where you’ll come to talk about footy and life”. Fagan then tweets it’s and focuses on the “life” part.

Just let it happen naturally behind the scenes, we don’t need to see it, otherwise it looks staged and it’s more about the club trying to sell itself.
Disagree. I love seeing. We are a jaded supporter base, as well as the staff and playing group.
The fans need to see this and I love it.

The problem is you’re so sensitive to any criticism of the Crows you took my post as a complaint. It triggered Kristof, at least you’ve kept your cool.

I merely stated what I would like to see less of.
Yeah but for every one like you who doesn’t want to see it there are 20 who do.

It was pretty cringey. Imagine if every player takes him up on his, “just drop in as you’re walking past” offer? He won’t be getting a lot done.
Well Kane said on SEN “the cameras might be rolling, but I can assure you, that is exactly what Nicks is like and who he is as a person”.

Yeah, much better if he says "You won't be spending much time in here kid, only if I need to give you a clip behind the ears. This is my office, you go out there with the unwashed"

I don’t care about the promotion, but I do care about the substance

If my new manager introduces his office that way, I am immediately thinking this guy is a total fraud and how close is the nearest exit
I bet you pack up at 4.55 so you can make it out of the carpark by 5.00

It’s great if he’s working on relationship building - just don’t put it down our throats with cringe video - just get on with it.

You people realise it's not hard arse BF types they're trying to win back, but the fluffy Facebook supporters that finally turned on them? This is the exact stuff that will bring the happy clappers back. Just ignore it, the club needs the happy clappers revenue.

You don't have to watch it? I think you and your mates should just automatically assume everything coming out from the Club is cringe and crap and just don't watch it. Will save us all a whole lot of angst.

If it was the first time then fair enough.

I’m measuring it against last year where we had a deluge of “everyone is so happy” videos.

We know now it was a lot of tosh and the playing group was fractured and very unhappy.

They're gonna post hype stuff no matter what the state of the club is. They certainly weren't going to post negative (realistic?) things during the PS and it probably was a bit happier during pre-season because you have no real competition to measure yourself against. Everything is great until it's not when the L's hit hard.

You mean like at the beginning of 2019 where all the talk was about how much fun everyone was having because we bought the fun element back only to implode massively.

The fans need to see results not BS promotions as a result of our past incompetence.

What would save us a lot of angst if you stop thinking that others should suck up every morsel the club throws out.

If anything recent history shows the exact opposite.
