Lots of people want hammer I can't play midfield it's to hard as captain? Didn't we trade Howard for this reason? Boak should if stayed capt or Ollie sole captain what a dog's breakfast.

Damned if they do, damned if they don’t.
Either way the melts will happen. I wish we could move on.
Why would the club be damned for admitting that half-captains was a feck up of enormous proportions, that they are sorry for destroying a club tradition that had existed since establishment and that from 2020 onwards the club would only ever have one captain and that player would wear the #1?

To sweeten things with the membership they could also announce Hinkley's sacking at the same press conference. ;)

Announce that and they can give us 45 co-captains for all I care, I'm still walking away happy.

Who cares who's captain. Absolutely none of them are good onfield leaders.
I am on record saying that I never thought Boak was a good on-field captain. People forget that he led us through multiple embarrassing capitulations over the years. However, given the current situation, he was still stands head and shoulders over the rest.

Of course but he's a better footballer without the responsibility

Sure he wasn't perfect, but most of those were after he was shifted out of the midfield to a position he was in no position to lift the team.

My point is in replying to your previous comment about them not being on the poster.
If they do put them on the poster there is outrage and hysteria that they will remain co captains and yet when they don’t put them on there is still outrage. Can’t win either way.

Tend to disagree. If they had used the captains on the game promo I probably wouldn’t have even commented.
The fact that the either the club is consciously not using them or that the captains seem to be “absent” a lot is what annoys me.
As I said elsewhere I would be a lot less “outraged “ if they at least acted like captains and I’m guessing a lot of other people would be too.

was my point.
Outrage whatever they do from now on. I am pretty well over the constant outrage myself though🙏😬
So we should just accept their incompetence? Make peace not war? The idiots are sticking fat with decisions that are killing our club.

I wish I could do more than just be outraged on a forum. I'm pretty sure my e-mails are now blocked by Keith Thomas (the spineless prick).

What other avenues do I have other than having a whinge here?

I renewed my membership in spite of the terrible way the club is being managed so I don't have that.

I hope guys like Alyx keep fighting the good fight or the club and AFL might believe they really are good to keep cruising along.

This means our 10th placing now makes us the highest ranking of the 5 teams still running with co captains.

The other 4 finished 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th.
It almost looks like appointing co-captains as a response to weak leadership options doesn’t make you a better team.
