Laugh all you like... many of you have complained FOR YEARS that the Club wasn't listening to members... and now you get a chance to do something about it. If I was in Adelaide I would absolutely put my hand up.
It’s going to take more than this to convince most of us that these ears are actually listening and not just another hollow PR exercise.

I'm thinking I may throw my hat in the ring for this one.

I'll have to look at the terms of engagement, etc etc but hey i'm retired with spare time, i'm opinionated, stubborn, fairly dumb so i'm representative of the greater membership, and a porn star.

Why the hell not?

Then I can be officially ignored, instead of just normally ignored.

Just a heads up people, run against me at your peril.
I believe that they still have photographs of you unveiling the “Sack Triggs” sign.

that’s the problem, it’s a token gimmick exactly for people like you.

the illusion of participation for the blindly trusting and incurious

I might send in my curriculum vitae in for this one. First order of business is to bring back Claude the Crow on the sideline at games. Would station him at the interchange gate and request he gives a player a spray when they come off the ground if they aren't performing. This would be highly embarrassing to the player and surely lift a players effort. I am full of ideas. Let's make it happen AFC.

An easy way to put this whole thing to bed would be to motion to make the board fully member-elected.

Why don’t they do it? Why is it never even mentioned, let alone motioned?

I’ll let you all chew on the answer to that.
Surely you know the answer to that? The AFL hold the license until some time in the next 4-5 years, at which point we can then change to a fully member elected board. Until then, the AFL have the say over other appointments.

Yes, I understand the practical restraints right at this minute... I’m saying none of the incumbents ever mention the possibility of it happening in the future. It’s never even a topic of discussion or an agenda item, there’s no remote mention of it from the club.

It‘s the obvious answer to all the criticisms, yet it never comes.

That is telling.

Seven years away is a long time

I wonder about individuals positioning themselves now, to be elected to the board in 2028

And how that will work, I’d suggest three year terms, three spots on the board come up every year
