I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t get voted back in.

I’d call it a near certainty that he will.


I thought sheedy wasn’t going for reelection?

If voters out him back in after his ego trip in trying to get his boy Hird back in as head coach, then we deserve all the pain we get.


Worzel Gummidge should know his time is up. I hope he doesn’t make us vote him out.

More importantly: Is there any chance of BLITZ CANDIDATES this time round ?


When does the Annual Report get released?

I want to see how much of Barham’s “brilliance” is actually just solving every single problem with millions of membership fees (Rutten payout, Thorburn payout, Scott poaching, increased football department spend, spend spend spend).

I wasn’t at all surprised that membership fees took a step change upwards this year.

Whos gonna go this year

This’ll be me


Yes, if I can.

I have walked to previous AGMs when held at MVRC, Clocktower Centre or Moonee Valley Council building. I won’t be walking to the Hangar… or going at all. Thanks EFC. :roll_eyes:

I’d vote for @Heffsgirl with the cannon.




Time for him to rest on his laurels before he de-laurels himself.

Yeah, that’s right. I’m entitled and I’ve cracked it because I would have to drive, lol.

i’d run, but i microwaved* my membership a while back

(* - didn’t renew)

-edit- run for a board position, not run to the hanger


Typo, or were members really that much more apathetic some decades ago?
