Good on ya, tinhillterror — you have integrity.
I can’t understand how, after the four-year hell the AFL put us through, any Essendon barracker can take out AFL: membership.
I’m an Essendon Football Club member and I always will be — but I detest the AFL, the self-serving hooky businessmen that run it and all it and they stand for.
I’d be delighted if the EFC and other big clubs left the AFL high and dry and set up their own new competition, as happened way back in 1897, but i’m afraid there’s Buckley and Nunn’s of that happening nowadays. The most we can hope for is that that slippery scion of the squattocracy, Gillon MacLachlan, will get his come-uppance sooner rather than later.
But for now, let’s just ask any Essendon-supporting AFL members to show some integrity, cancel their AFL membership and take on the equivalent value in a straight-out Essendon membership.
