Any mail on the VAFA constitution meeting tonight?

Not voted on - VAFA decided to go away and for the first time do some club consulting rather than trying to roll over the clubs with a constitution that was VAFA Admin & Board driven.
Any mail on the VAFA constitution meeting tonight?
Meeting mail is that the ship was abandoned and everyone jumped overboard! No vote.

Just dropping by - I’m an NFNL man, but in our area noticed Preston ammos appointed a coach that according to their own press release has only ever coached their own 19s. I know they got relegated from Premier C which is decent footy so surely they could get a better credentialed coach than that.

Why's that? Senior coaches start somewhere Plenty come from junior coaching, some from reserves coaching and some straight from playing. I read the press release as well and whilst he hasn't coached a senior side, has been a senior assistant and has a long history of coaching. They obviously feel they have the right man. Good luck to him.

I'm with the angel here. Just like a gun player who would have made their way through the ranks juniors to seniors. Nothing strange about this at all.

In case you missed it, St Kevins just appointed someone who has never coached before.
Its Premier C, not the AFL....

I don't know the new coach, but i think appointing someone associated with the juniors, and / or the Under 19s is a great idea. Up our way, it's tough to recruit big names in the Ammos, so developing the juniors is a good strategy, and if he's got a good relationship with the Unders, then they'll be inclined to stick around and grow with the club.

There's a lot of "ifs" in there, but on the face of it, it seems like the right appointment.

Don't under estimate George and his passion. Spent several years at the Panthers with George, he will give it his all and has been around footy constantly for many years.
Have to start your Senior Coaching career somewhere.

It is great that the VAFA Board left promotion and relegation in the hands of the clubs and the clubs alone. Excellent policy decision.

is blind to this
BUT
Smells a rat when coupled with your first post.

This can only be about Glen Eira/Brunswick or Monash Blues/Parkdale or another late up and down
Come on 007

Lots of news > one enticing snippet from the corridors of zoom zone No > Board news is what I'm hinting at. Divisions within could be responsible for the one who jumped overboard yesterday and not returning. Gee how to lead you ducks to the water. Is it a coincidence that straight after the botched Constitution debacle long tall standing VAFA bored member says I'm out. Perhaps the Maestro should have portalised the bon voyage officially before BF delivers the info. Cryptic clue excellent credentials. Room for one more come December.

A hearty congratulations and thankyou to GE President Ivan Delac for his 9 years in the job. Ivan is retiring which is sad for our club and football in general. His drive and foresight has made GE emerge as a well run prosperous club both on and off the field. Thanks to his efforts GE ended up the top VAFA club in 2021 result wise. Enjoy your retirement.

Big congratulations to the Moose. An outstanding leader of a club on the rise. He’ll be a hard man to replace. I’d love to see him on the VAFA board one day.

hopefully it’s George Voyage that is standing down. He has added absolutely nothing as President.

I've had a fair crack at Glen Eira over the years , but at least they are the only club to have a crack and get promoted . Monash weak as piss !
Not true. Every grade had teams wanting to be promoted. Glen Eira got their wish.

I cannot fathom why a team who dominated the grade would not want to be promoted. Why play in the first place - just become a ClubXVIII club.
