It's ironic that the self appointed mother of the board fired an unnecessary shot about negativity which started all the ...negativity.I feel bad that I've been here since 2011 and don't know which one Spackler is.
In any case, nobody is even being negative about this appointment but the thread got derailed by negativity anyway. Mods should put a broom through this thread.
Yet in the last few weeks, the usual suspects have been bemoaning the almost certain "boys club" appointment, despite all other recent evidence to the contrary. At least this announcement shuts them up on this topic.The naysayers have been proven right and vindicated repeatedly.
This looks like yet another positive and strong appointment - and funnily enough, the overwhelming response is positive.
Surely you’re working on a movie about this...From what I remember, Spackler was murdered by a gang of criminals and subsequently revived by the megacorporation Omni Consumer Products as the football forum moderator and David Mackay fanboy now known as Drugs are bad
We didn’t win any either.We didn’t lose any games in November or December
My understanding is he applied for CEO at the Hawks, lost to Gaudy; she was gone in five months, board replaced her with someone else, he took it on the chin and kept plugging away.On reflection, I think Silvers is a pretty uninspiring selection. Nothing particularly stands out in his background, and being at the one club for 17 years is not the sign of an ambitious, hungry executive.
maybe that’s just what we need. A lower profile guy, a footy guy, to just do the damn job.
after all the ego driven turmoil of the last decade, just doing the damn job might be a blessed relief.
and say what you like about the ‘family club’ they never forgot who they were, where they came from, and what mattered. Supporters aren’t an afterthought.
and having seen first hand our troubles, it’s hard to believe Dunstall’s thoughts weren’t sought, and thumbs up received about Silvers.
