Does anyone know when the board finally got rid of the direction that we were aiming to play finals every year? My memory of it was that it was after we’d missed a few finals, so probably around 2008.
Does anyone think Dodoro was the one who decided that we would give all the saga players a free pass to return to the club?
Does anyone think Dodoro is the one to say we do not trade out top players and rebuild from the bottom 4?
Because we know the top one came from the board, and I’d be surprised if the direction on the other two weren’t board driven as well (any clues @Catherine_Lio if this direction is board level? ) . We know for years the recruiting team was underfunded, and that it was a part-time job for Dodoro. Saying carte blanche that the fact that we’ve missed finals for 13 years is all Dodoro’s fault without taking elements such as these into consideration is not being fair or rational.
I’m of the view that recruiting has been better than average. My concern is the general philosophy of EFC to list building, and I do think Dodoro hasn’t been great with the low cost trades. The first I suspect/believe is probably from higher up the food chain than Jacket sits in.
