Well Barnz, I think you are perverting my message.
I know many Coterie Members and none I know were born into wealth, and don’t flaunt it around. I respect Darlis view on Peter Hughes, as I have only met him a few times, and didn’t know who the Sash was until now, which does explain a great deal. Gauci is a ■■■■■■ and Gai is a good business woman.
All I have ever said is that Coteries are not the Evil Empire, and from my experience with the Essendonians, I have seen no agenda to control anything. These blokes and blokettes spend money the Club needs and do good work, and love the Club.
Most drink beer and swear, and call umpires maggots, just like the rest of us.
The match days for the Essendonians are nice to visit once a season, but I prefer my seats with Mrs Fox and the friends we have made over the past 15 years at the G and the Dome. I see no reason to slag Coteries or feel at all jealous.
