How the Board can overturn a 150 year tradition on the say so of one of the least successful coaches in club history without a single dissenter beggars belief.

I don't believe it.
Ok guys before we vote.

A show of hands who thinks they will vote in the affirmative?

Ok. Who things it will work better PR wise if we have a unanimous vote?

Ok let's vote.

They're not going to come out and say that the board was split on the issue, everything just gets presented as being 'unanimous'. Wanganeen all but publicly declared that he didn't like it. I'm sure there was at least a bit of back and forth about it.
So you are saying David Koch is lying?

Our debt profile has stayed pretty much the same for 4 years - Koch said at the AGM.

Look at the 3 page financial statements and Current + Non Current Liabilities items of Interest bearing loans and borrowings, had gone up from $6.261m in 2017 to $8.279m yet in the cash flow statement it said we paid off $182k of short term borrowings and finance leases.

Is that a lie? An embellishment? Not telling the full truth?

It was Ken Hinkley who suggested co captains would improve our chances of winning.
That may well be the case, but that doesn't change my argument one little bit.
90% of a captains job occurs Monday-Friday off the field.
So Wines being out (as captain) wont reduce our chances of winning any more than Wines being out (as non captain).

Team Port......yes, like many of us, I was disappointed at the "two captains" decision. But having read KT's letter to members, I know it's set in bronze, so let's cut the crap and get behind both great club men......they both deserve the title Captain...and they both deserve our total support. We Are Port Adelaide.

Creative accounting maybe?

Impey, Amon, SPP etc incidents plus the failure to get Wingard “engaged” in the serious business of football in recent years may have convinced the football department that we needed more “coverage” from the playing group leadership. Not a bigger leadership group with fuzzy responsibility but fewer blokes with more defined roles and “authority”.

All that completely separate to perfectly fair debate on the merits of 1 captain vs 2 onfield.

Port have been a middle-of-the-road side for their entire time under Ken Hinkley, capable of flashes of brilliance that seduce us, but rarely with any substance to back it up”

Pretty much
This sums up Hinkley’s time at Port. Good article But forgot to say co-captains will bring more success, so really hasn’t done any research......

Why do you find that odd?
I find it odd that the article comments about us being consistently middle of the road and finishing between 5th and 10th with between 10 and 14 win seasons every year for the last 6 but then predicts us to drop right down to 13th with what would only be a 7 or 8 win season.

Middle of the road, then says doesn’t think we have the replacements for Wingard and Polec, so will drop. Not odd at all. Hopefully it’s wildly wrong of course.

Been middle of the road the whole time but then predicts us to finish 13th?
At this time of the year you can only work with the established facts and 2018 player performances. If in 2019 our new coaching setup has us play more efficiently, if the 2018 buy-ins begin to deliver, if the new draftees give us even one SPP 1st year established player, if losing Wingard and Polec is survivable .....
Trouble is 17 other clubs have a similar list of ifs.

It feels like some on here would love us to fail just to prove they are right about Hinkley.
