Never got dropped to the reserves - what a star!

Shows how little I pay attention to Adelaide. I first thought he'd played every game at AFL level, which would be a good achievement, then realised with the Adelaide media I couldn't have missed that. Looks like instead he's going to be one of the 'next <zzzz>' players placating the masses in preparation for the upcoming exodus.

He makes a very valid point, he basically said our clubs strength is our members and if we pull our financial support and the ub is put into the control of the AFL then we become a franchise and the things we live wont become a priority.

The AFL already appoint all but two of our board and have the right of veto on the other two.

We're already under the control of the AFL by proxy with KT, Kochie, et al.

The AFL and the SANFL put our club innthe hands of the AFL.

Whether we have a membership or not doesn't change that and that is the REAL problem.

Everyone heard rucci on SEN today?

Standard scare mongering of
"You better stop complaining and just blindly support your club or else!"
The one group that is disenfranchised and unable to do anything except vote with their feet are to blame for the bin fire the club has become, not the people with their hands on the controls like the president, CEO, coach, board, and co-captains?

I'm unfortunately now at the point where I think real change will only happen if members walk. Judging by their actions everyone in a leadership position is far too comfy with non-performance. If the club plays to a half empty AO every game, the AFL will have to step in and remove them because they're sure as sh1t not leaving of their own accord.

That is literally what has already happened.

That would be a nice way of putting it. Didn’t we already go over this in another thread?
Yeah I guess explaining what was said would attract that sort of response, feels like the old school.yard on this forum, pity it's the same group of supporters we even try to tear each other down like the club
