Hey easeup these are the same people reaching out......these people’s are offering the stakeholder/consumer places on the committees.These peoples are basically saying you won’t change how we go about things so come join us.

These peoples believe that WE the consumers/stakeholders are the problem with the current game.

These peoples believe it is us social media users(keyboard warriors)who incite.

These peoples will tell all and sundrie it is the FANS who are toxic and are responsible for the complete amatuer nature of the premier league.....and the state it is in today.
Damn good point about the "People's" Mull........what's stopping our keyboard warriors from jumping into a club they give a fark about and helping change what we have accepted as the Norm?? Or is that easier said than done??

What frustrates us all is that we want better but we don't know how to do better.....or don't have the peoples capable of better.

It's not just about the peoples......it's about the quality and calibre of the peoples at the coalface......have the next generation  got the smarts and balls to take our game to the next level?? 

Power to the Peoples!!!

I’m totally with you Don. I absolutely concur that the next generation should stop whining and step up and clean up the enormous mountain of shit created over decades by former administrators, presidents and committee members.
 
Very least it’ll give those lazy neck bearded, skinny jean wearing, chai tea sipping, Ed Sheeran wannabe’s Gen Y’s something to do right ?
 
Power to the Pinot Grigio !

😂😂😂😂....now you've got me pissing myself Crab, can't agree more that the next generation kids have to do it the hard way after the massive turd left by all and sundry. Maybe they can remove the excrement with a new phone app......or Bitshit Crypto currency, now there's an idea....pay the players in virtual money, solves the salary cap issue.....there you go, giving the Gen Y kids a few tips to help them along.😜

The next generation WILL fix the cockup left by current and previous committees Blind appeasement of all things ffa.....

But before doing so they will need a “blank canvas”.......

......and I think we all know what that means(even the middle aged egocentric ,fools were cronyism rules currently holding positions at clubland)

......it means withdrawing formally from the ffa.....

The FFAFWNPLWA is considered a bastard........stakeholders warned against it for the most part....yet that’s what we where dealt.

No chance.
 
You can barely drag the current young gen away from their phones or gaming to go to training all of twice a week let alone ask them to resolve the mountain of shit that is our Senior football league.
 
Also, we’re already a two bob hick league out West so detaching ourselves from FFA, irrespective of how incompetent they are, and all the repercussions associated with such a move would pretty much be the death knell.

Nothing much more to add to this thread that Crab and Mull haven’t already. 
 
So the summation is: 
 
Past administrators have left a pile of shit, present administrators are incompetent and future generations will be unwilling to volunteer their time for something that doesn’t involve instant gratification.
 
Great.

Not as cynical regarding the future generations......

They will  have the benefits of experience/hindsight......

Again the game will always look after itself,it’s a release after all,it will ebb and flow in terms of support,generally mirroring the psyche? of the demographics of the time.

.....but that’s not to say that the power brokers of the time of darkness (past two decades)and their subordinates (committees along the way)won’t be remembered as selling out....and bringing wa football to its knees......

Problem is, the existing club hierarchy at most clubs won't allow for succession, not allowing the next generation to have any influence. 

Too many people holding on tightly to the reigns and never letting go. Bit like the management of the FFA!!

The way I see it, and this just my opinion and I may be wrong, is that those in charge of the clubs don't see that they need to run things like a business. And I don't mean this literally but they need to look after the customers and other stake holders. A good business that looks after its customers will prosper and that is the same with clubs. However if the clubs carry on not delivering and also treating their member like they are stupid then eventually people will leave. Treat players and members with respect, loyalty, honesty, and fairness and that will only make the clubs stronger and more people will join and come and watch. With strength comes better finances which allows clubs to hire better coach and better facilities which will lead to better development of players. This is a long process building from ground level but the only way I feel things will improve.

Very true, but the million $ question which has been around for decades still applies:
 
How do we remove the cancers out of the clubs and Administration ?

 
Solve that and you will resolve the problem which is killing our local game........
