Fair point, but I think you’ve read way too much in what I have posted. Maybe I wasn’t clear with the point I was making.
Regarding the size of blitz in comparison to the size of the membership base, well there is no comparison. But regardless of the size, blitz is a good representation of both members and non members and the perfect platform for a board member or potential board member to sound out what passionate supporters are thinking/talking about.
I have no doubt in my mind that either or both Katie and Paul are reading comments about memberships, jumper design, scarves, VFL reports, seating, website etc etc and taking that feedback back to the board to discuss.
Regularly I see posts where Katie in particular is tagged into the thread and addresses questions that are asked. It is quite the luxury we have and quite smart to engage with a forum like they both do on blitz and twitter.
Blitz posting is no KPI to get my vote, but fan engagement and working your backside off like I KNOW Katie does sure is. My point is I don’t want to lose that privellage and feel some other candidates will use a platform like blitz to get votes then toffee off.
And despite what some may think of blitz, there’d be a lot of people that would be surprised to know how often we have been approached by EFC to float ideas and scope how the members would react.
A current Demons exec was renowned for contacting us on a regular basis. Plus don’t forget the impact the backourboys and standbyhird blitz driven campaigns had. And it was Blitz through Ryan McKee that changed the way fans were treated at training sessions too.
I certainly get what you’re saying though. But it wasn’t the angle I was coming from.
