Interesting comments Oake. What do you think about the current furore about the current Board wanting to take over the referees to satisfy a few on the board and not having the courtesy or respect to involve clubs. This is the biggest and most destructive decision the GDSFA has ever made. It is a monumentally big issue. Who do you think is behind it on the Board and what caused it.
To the best of my uninformed knowledge:
1. No one from my club 'enlisted' any politician. It appears he has attached himself to this idea, as any politician is entitled to do should they see a community need in their area. We have had no communication with him.
2. You point about a business giving away its income is a little patronising. Why should any customer continue to give their business to a company if it is not meeting their needs? I have already noted that my club wishes to see GDSFA remain viable if this is to proceed.
3. I don't know what a 'DT' is so cannot respond to your point.
4. The history of the FFA levy is also unknown to me so I cannot comment, but don't quite see the relevance to the issue. Am I missing the point?
If there was a request from GDSFA to the clubs to respond in writing with their proposals I will approach our exec and see what they have asked for. Is anyone else from any other club in possession of this information? Did you have any formal request from GDSFA so we can all become aware of what happened?
This can't be done with just 'he said, she said' supposedly happening at meetings. There needs to be minutes so everyone is clear on what was discussed and what was agreed.
BTW, the politician you refer to in your previous post was, in my opinion, responsible for the most destructive period I have seen. I have no time for personal abuse and vindictiveness, nor for power games. I also don't see how you can keep anyone on board without clear and open communication, and some certainty that the rules of today will be kept tomorrow. I saw none of that but plenty of the opposite. I suspect many people became rather tired during that time, and good people would have been scared away from ever serving on the board.
