Dom is a great person, Scorps, I agree.

We have no money and I think the price Dom would deserve would be far out of our range.

Could the club approach the guy from paralowie who won $15,000.000 to coach the club and make a small donation of say $1,000.000. Shocked

Some great questions and well answered Lee

Just catching up with the previous 3 pages worth.
I can back lee up - We have had players suggested from ex league players and have signed one for next season as a result of a past player sending him our way... I wont say who it is as this should and will be announced by the admin at a more appropriate time.

As mentioned above, we are limited by funds for the aggressive recruiting many posters want BUT Glenelg proved this year that many so call stars or ex AFL players dont come over with the right mindset and are not always the answer.

If anyone sees a gun player in a country or amatuer league final, by all means, make yourself heard - We all want the same thing for our great club

Turns out Glenelg finished the year as the 2nd worst performing team in the league this year.

Reckon there is a lot more to be learnt from our own failings.

I suggest we look at employing just one GM and reintroduce a full time coach.

Isn't it funny that Norwood has been broke for years, got a no name coach because of funds and coudn't recruit because of salary cap breaches yet can they find a winning team. Sounds alot like us except for the level of professionalism. Shocked Shocked Shocked

I'll take nfc position with finances any day
Their pokie venue is 400 k plus in front of ours with hardly any overheads to run compared to our base
They have more members and sponsors of affluence than us.
I would also swap zones with them especially after what we just got handed out
It's true they did hit some major hurdles a while back owing to mismanagement but they are looking at a major spending revamp at Norwood oval  
I don't think nfc and wafc is a good juxtaposition

ST, Norwood recruited a number of Sydney Swans players and Nathan Bassett was hardly a 'no name' coach, neither is Ben Warren, who inherited a premiership team.

Norwood then recruited more AFL players and busted the salary cap. They then had their penalties reduced to allow them to recruit, as you might remember. They are also backed by some wealthy supporters, which is their good luck. As Mark has said, they have a number of such advantages over us.

We have come 2nd and 3rd to them in the last 3 years, with no money for recruiting,which has been a mighty effort and a credit to Andrew Collins, the club and the players. Indeed, supporters here also dipped in to help recruit, for which the club remains grateful.

The title of this topic is 'What would you do?', looking for suggestions.

Perhaps whatever we do, it wouldn't satisfy you. I hope that's wrong.

I look forward to you looking to the future, not looking back.

We might even get you to make Westies your First Team.

To update posters and readers, there will be a Board meeting early next week.

After that, members will be updated on progress on several important initiatives which we hope will return our club to financial stability.

I am confident of our immediate future.

I deleted my first post in reply, as it was probably not appropriate, but I think I should give up trying to get anything positive from you, ST.

A kicking coach isn't up to the Board, so please try to understand what this topic is asking.

If a kicking coach isn't up to the board then what the hell do you guys do.
Swan around like a bunch of knobs talking about the good old days when we kicked 3 goals in two finals.
Talk about getting the lights fixed.
Talk about how the hell did that dude steal so much money. Twice.
Talk about when we lost a safe.
What the hell do you do. Shocked Shocked Shocked

Wait for a few announcements 2nd team where the current board will present the whole truth of our position

Look forward to you assisting the club as we move forward with our goals to make sure we are strong financially as we work both off and on field to make us the most transparent board in the league. That way members of our club know where we stand what we have to do in the short term and where we have to get to in the near future

You want me to take decisive action, ST?

OK, you're suspended here for 7 days for abuse.

You have been warned many times before by other Moderators for the same thing.

All of the things you mentioned were before my appointment to the Board.

Others have contributed positively, you just seem hell bent on trying to sabotage a genuine attempt to be inclusive.

Perhaps I shouldn't have tried?

I should add that anyone who attended the last AGM would know that two of the so-called 'bunch of knobs' on the Board put in well over $200,000 of their own money to keep the club afloat.

That's what they do.

Yes it is so common for some to forget the good that people do for the club, its much easier to sink the boots in and be negative. Oh and they never put there hands up to help,just constant harping. Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep

With Second Team being banned from this forum by a member of the West Adelaide board, freedom of speech has been thrown out of the window... Ok, being called a knob is not on, but how about you ask Second Team to retract that statement before placing a ban.
I can tell you it's not a good look when a board member starts banning members from this forum.

It's personal abuse that's been thrown out the window Whispy, not freedom of speech.

Whispy, I started the Bloods Forum many years ago to encourage people to have their say. I've funded it since then and it's rare for anything to be censored. I'm only one of 3 moderators and ST is welcome back in a few days.

Abuse isn't allowed here and isn't necessary.

I agree about personal abuse on a forum should not be tolerated...but in Second Teams defence, i can't see where he actually did abuse anyone apart from calling the board knobs....

I only found this that's been covered up and if you call that personal abuse then it's pretty soft.

If a kicking coach isn't up to the board then what the hell do you guys do.

It's nothing to do with abuse of me, I can handle that. ST has been warned many times. Calling volunteers 'knobs' isn't on.

Can a club in such a precarious financial status and with such poor performance on the field justify 2 General Managers?

Success on the field will lead to an improved financial result eventually and a more sustainable business model. Please invest more in coaching.
