And wouldn’t the press taken to that kindly…Things aren’t always as black and white as that. We as members called for unity, we wanted the players to stick together, we wanted the the club to stick together, but yea, ■■■■ it, lets have the board split and have us look like a rabble. Sometimes the look of unity is more important than a voting decision, no matter what the unpleasant outcome. This isn’t a primary school’s PTA meeting. These members are responsible for a multi-million dollar organisation, and on top of that, decisions are emotionally scrutinised unlike any other corporation has to deal with.
I certainly would hope as voters we don’t waste our vote on a board member that has a hissy fit if a vote doesn’t go their way and resign. And that we are not voting for candidates based on one issue alone. Do you think if board members, no matter whom they are or what decision that was voted on split because of a bad call, that we’d be where we are right now. Do you think with chaos at the top, players like Hooker and Hurley would have come back? They we’d be landing the three S’s now? That we’d return a 5+ million dollar profit?
Finally, we have NO idea what was going on behind the scenes at that time outside of the board. What role did the coaching panel have, the players, club welfare personal, all these may have being contributing factors in a decision the board acted on, perhaps had to act on for the sake of those involved.
Now it’s Sunday…I’d like to go a lay on my couch now and get fatter. So lets agree to disagree.
