So lets see now...As I read it anyone contemplating putting their hand up must jump through hoops to do so by applying to the Nominations Committee . This is no doubt to ensure they are of the “right stuff” and suitably qualified to carry out the job in the eyes of the Committee. Given the performance of the club over the past 3 years I can’t see how they are qualified to judge anybody! I would think anyone with an ounce of self respect would pass on that one. If they brought back the pram lady I don’t think we could do worse.

I'm not one of those who voted for this new management structure, and I don't know how you'd go about contacting all our members (other than calling on an Extraordinary General Meeting), but don't we need to put a time frame on when we judge how this new arrangement has gone? Obviously it's been a failure in its first 3 years, so at what point do we say "This isn't working, it needs to change."? If we have another year or two bouncing along the bottom rungs of the ladder is that when we call time on it? If not, how long do they have?
Personally, if our results are similar next year I can see members seriously agitating for change.

We're now seeing the effect of the change. It is not out of the question that the Nominations Committee may have already decided on their preferred candidate. At such a crucial time for the Club, members will have no say at all, not asked or canvassed for their opinion.

The Nominations Committee dismissed several long-standing, passionate West Adelaide people and replaced them with sponsors, business people and SANFL Equal Goals candidates. Most have already departed, with 2 years service for their CVs, while supporters have stopped attending and feel disengaged.

The Constitution needs 75% to be changed back and that is nearly impossible once the powers marshall sponsor members and players to vote against it.

Of course, any member can put forward a vote of no confidence in the Board, which would just need a normal majority to succeed. Hopefully that won't ever be necessary, but the last three years have been disastrous, with no major initiatives at all and change is essential. Moneyed sponsors will already be jostling for positions, as they always have.

Respecting members, supporters and long-term volunteers is even more necessary.

I’ve heard around the traps, that Financially, we are in a pretty good spot.
If true, the Board deserves some credit for that.
BUT, you can’t hide away from 6 wins in 3 years.
At the end of the day a football club’s success is based on wins and losses.
As a member, I would like to know if we are going to have an increase in Salary Cap expenditure to recruit for 2022.
I don’t have a lot of confidence in the off field department to turn things around.
