When they hold the sentiment sasho is putting out there, they’re not needed.
Van Diemen Dons is not a coterie. It may be listed as such on the website but I believe that will be corrected.
Darli isn’t it a bit rough just to call someone dishonest and leave it at that? How do David or Peter defend themselves from that sort of criticism, especially from contributors like you and me who do not even use our full names for our avatars?
I know that every day on this site someone is anointed a flog of the highest order, but this vague criticism may affect the way someone votes.
Pretty sure anyone’s welcome to sign up!
After last year’s result, some might even think it would be a smart move. From memory after the election Gauci or one of his cronies spent a bit of time disparaging those members who voted for Lio and Cousins - mainly because they bothered to spend a bit of time on here.
Essendon AGMs have been a rubber stamping exercise for a very long time, between board appointees and Coterie proxies. More openness and discussion, better access to nominees and more engagement can only be a good thing.
I hope it does.
We say things all the time on this site that are taken on judgement. You can either trust me or not. That’s up to you.
If it’s important to you, do some reasearch. It’s not difficult.
Avid blitzers will know how good your judgement of character is!!
There is an exception that proves every rule
Geez. Did the work experience kid format that document? I have never seen a whole formal document centre justified before.
My only comment about Gai Williams is that she is successful in business and heavily involved in the EWN. seems nice enough to chat to online by the way.
In an official media release of 22 July 2016 ( up on the VDD thread)’ X described the group as an official coterie
He did. Just as he did at the official launch. It was a mistake. I assume it will be corrected.
Going by the posts in the VDD thread In July 2016, X was not the only one promoting VDD as a coterie.
The club originally called it a coterie. It was obvious as we went down the track that it was a supporters group. I’m sure the club will correct it when they see fit.
Just out of curiosity, what is the difference between a coterie v supporter group?
Coteries Support the club in a major way.
The big ones, like the Essendonians, up to 100k a year… possibly more.
The massive ones, you don’t hear from or about… millions.
Wowsers! Cheers Darli.
yes because god forbid the club does anything that makes their supporters happy…
Can’t believe people knock the coteries, they contribute decent amount of coin that keeps the club running
Which is great, but that shouldn’t make them feel entitled to anything else.
Great post, thanks for sharing.
And get well soon 'Boot
