    Honestly, some people on here are fickle fans. Don't try to read too much into it and just be patient! She's not shying away from anything and told it as it is. She knows the pressure is on when 2021 comes around, and if she doesn't deliver, she understands she's more than likely gone!

    Like I said if results and improvement are not forthcoming then
    Football club members can have their say,simply as that.

    Yeh exactly. Elections coming up. The realisation that they won’t secure any notable players before then. So just propaganda to get re-elected.

    What she failed to mention was the ticket that won’t the last election is almost unrecognisable or what’s left. If she can’t even get a board in place how can they build a team and sponsors and strive towards a title.

    I’m very iffy about her, hills and pays ability. Not too sure how much better then castle dib and Hasler they are. But I’ll wait until 2021 before I pass judgment. Lucky for her elections are in March. So she might scrape through.

    True. But ATM we have some people crowning them as saviours when they've done nothing special yet while others are carrying on as if they're the most useless cunts in existence when really they've done nothing of note wrong yet. Imo they have just taken the lowest risk route possible and have been spinning shit to buy time until the books clear and we can recruit.

    And... consistent. The message has never wavered. Now that much of the hill has been climbed, they’re aware of the challenges and the expectations of the members and supporters going forward. The next 12 months of their leadership will make or break their tenure, perhaps their legacy. I see them as being on a good path.

    I think there’s a bit more to it than that - lots of governance changes and processes introduced to ensure a Dib and Co. like fiasco can never happen again. Preventing another disaster is just as important as mopping up this one.

    I’m not 100% convinced either at this point in time but a lot can change between now and season 2021
    Our current team should improve,don’t rule out other signings also.
    The development guys could kick on

    Dear lynn or pretend to be...
    We all know not much can be done in regards to our roster for 2020.
    My question to you...When are we meant to start signing marquee players for 2021 season...Is it before 2020 election or after ?

    Kind regards
    The Great Bullfrog !!!

    Not sure why you say ‘can’t get a board in place’?

    3 directors have resigned since the 2018 election.

    1 left the club (C. Anderson, for reasons undisclosed that many speculated on but had no evidence).

    1 left to take an executive position at the club because under the by-laws he couldn’t hold an executive and director position (S. Price).

    1 resigned to declare his intent to dedicate energy to an external business, but does not leave until the next election and intends to stay on the Leagues Club board, which suggests he’s not leaving for reasons of disharmony. (S. Mortimer).

    The 2 directors that have already left the board were quickly replaced (by P. Mortimer and J. Thomas).

    There may or may not be a challenger ticket at the next election, but I don’t see this as propaganda - if it was truly politics there’d be some sweeteners thrown in, which there weren’t. Oh, except a BBQ and I’d hardly call that a political promise that would never be delivered.

    On a side note, she is one ugly mother fucker. I’ve seen some pigs in my time but she makes Castle look like Bo Derek.

    Good to see the collective IQ of the bleaters remains well below a score of 69 or ‘extremely low’ by the official measure.

    I think the board / coach etc are all feeling the pressure from the fans that’s why she put out a statement. But I think the fact she mentioned salary cap position for 2021 makes me think there is some negotiations going on. You can’t wait until 2021 season to start buying players you need to do that now... I’m sure they know this.

    I’m far from convinced also,sometimes we just have to show some faith and give them a fair shot at getting our great club back to the top again
    We are the most passionate and committed supporters in the league
    Nothing better than reaching great heights again

    They've got a certain ideology in mind which hopefully will open a premiership window just like the previous board thought they did. Let's just hope it's not more wasted time + no premiership in 5 years.

    As I said in another thread I've got no doubt they're doing the best they can but many on the board just aren't innovators or made for this era.

    It also worries me that they mention Foran so prominently in the letter. Most fans can't stand the cap space he is taking up and the fact he's contributed so little to the club and would hardly care about him getting emotional support.
