Whispy, I'd LOVE to praise the Board and support them, unfortunately, the results speak for themselves. I love the club too, that's why I am so disappointed in what it has become. Being a supporter doesn't mean you can never raise criticism or have a point of view when things are going as they are.

Fair post, whispy.

The difference is that we've always cracked down on personal abuse.  I see none of that here.

You make a good point about us all following the same team, but there has been division on here for as long as I remember, unfortunately.

When we're heading for our third wooden spoon in a row under the new Board, I think it's a legitimate question for discussion, as long as it's not personal. There are many good people on the Board, but it's a fair question to ask, IMO, if replacing all the long-serving, passionate West people on the Board with sponsors and non-West supporting business people was the right move.

That's no longer relevant, so let's hope for a turnaround in our fortunes.

What I worry about is when passionate West people are silenced or told to do other things on a weekend if they're unhappy.
That leads to a bad situation for a wonderful club, with low crowds and little support.

If I made a comment I would be barred
Is why I don't post
Rodh2 is always having a go at board but if I say anything about the old board you come down hard on me
You use to say be patient now because you are no longer president people can now be critical of the new board
Totally wrong in my opinion
Let's see how long this post stays on

By the way I thought Murphy was outstanding - completely shut Hender down and provided a lot of drive and rebound himself. Lovell, Hill, Boyle and Ellem the best of the others.

Our mids seemed to win very few clearances, particularly in the centre square, and then their lack of pace means we can't stop the opposition.

But what I can't work out is what our forward structure is SUPPOSED to look like when we go inside 50. Obviously the plan isn't to kick it to Ellem who has two opponents on his hammer; or to kick it to another contest where we are outnumbered or undersized. But that's what we keep doing, so what is actually SUPPOSED to happen?

I have heard (from people that would know) that we are pretty strong financially, compared to what we have been and the Board gets a tick for that. I think it’s more than just COVID payments and Football Park handouts.
I’m sure that Brad Gotch is probably a bit surprised at how poor we have been on field this year. It would be a bit of a reality check for him and the coaching group.
The club are actively sourcing players for next year. Let’s hope they
can get some quality in.
We need a ruckman, a CHF and a CHB for starters. Another midfielder as well.
I hope some hard calls are made at seasons end with a few players who have been tried at league level but are not up to it.

Considering that I go to the club regularly I can say that membership has increased this year
With all the new development in the area a lot of new people are appearing in the club

Membership is 1303, according to the website, been similar or more for years.

The kitchen no longer serves meals after a game.

Crowds are well down.

The club has major problems and needs to unite, not split.

We all love this club, but I worry about its future and I'm sure I'm not alone.

It's an open forum.

No reward for mediocrity in the SANFL. If we were in the AFL we would be getting rewarded with first round draft picks.

No, unfortunately. They are now only arriving occasionally, much like the President's Message to Members. (7 out of 24 due since members were promised one after each board meeting. A communication fail.

It is my intention to publish a President’s Message as soon as possible after each formal board meeting is held. This will provide you with certainty about the timing of when you can expect updates on the activities of the board. Formal board meetings are held on the last Monday of every month,

I found the last Coach's Report to be underwhelming to say the least. I wonder if the board is planning on having another members' forum anytime soon. I'm sure members would appreciate having the opportunity to attend.

I'm not quite sure what a member's forum has, or could achieve? Has anyone attended a forum and seen progress from anything raised? I'm not knocking the idea, I just wonder if anyone has anything positive to add?

I would have thought communication from someone, anyone at the club would become exponentially more important the more the team continues to struggle. Where's the expression of concern at our on field situation? Where's the information about what's being done to improve it? Where's the encouragement to keep supporting the team? Are questions being asked of those in charge? If so, what are they saying? If not, why not?

It is something the board promised to have each year. It would be another opportunity to communicate with members. As has been pointed out by others, communication at this particular time is crucial. Six wins out of our last 44 games. I would like to think that the board is hurting as much as members/supporters.

Laughing FFS, I "know" you have an e-mail, I was asking if you had an e-mail from the club advising you of the next members forum. How do you know I think I know everything, anyway? Thanks for the invitation, too, but I am otherwise engaged!! Thanks for participating!!

macca, you've made 11 posts, just about all of them having a crack at the same 2 or 3 posters, just about zero constructive input.

Almost nothing on football.

We all follow the same team. Constructive criticism and debate is welcomed, stalking not so much.
