Nominations for the new Richmond Board

Recommended Posts

It's a tough time for our Richmond friends. Lets help them out with a few nominations for their new board.

My nominations are

- The toothless pensioner who holds up the 'TIGER TOUGH ' sign in the cheer squad.

- The drunken bum from the front bar of the 'Spread Eagle Hotel' ( any one of them)

- The Richmond chapter president of the ' Under the bridge wine appreciation society '

- Dustin Martins chopsticks

- The guy who signed off on Dimmas contract extension

- Harambe

Let's play AFL Board Challenge Bingo.

 

Take a drink every time one of challengers utters one of these phrases:

  • empower the members
  • worlds best practice
  • too long complacent
  • immediately search for best available coach (two drinks if it's an "exhaustive" search)
  • setting standards throughout the club from top to bottom
  • rightful place at the top of the ladder
  • legacy of Tommy Hafey
  • core business of football

Actually, I think some of our own past Board members would be suitable for RFC. We also have a past CEO that is available. 

Seriously, I have always wondered what Board's do and what they contribute. Do they make any real difference? I suspect not.

Could Paul Roos and his coaching staff and Peter Jackson and his admin team have run the club this year without a Board. In times past, did the Board (other than when sacking coaches) make any real difference? They provide a sounding board and allow the CEO in particular to get approval for any initiatives. Yes, they oversee the running of the club and provide a back stop in the case of a corrupt or incompetent CEO but that's about it.  

It seems you can have a dysfunctional board or one of puppets or "yes" men or women. Naturally you need a wise and energetic President, good Coach and coaching staff, and great players but you do wonder what Boards bring to the mix. I think that some rank and file supporters on the Board would contribute as much as anyone.

Toby Mitchell is experienced at running a powerful club and he has proved capable of taking a hit for the team.

Would be the perfect choice as President .

" Hiscock says that the challengers would like Damien Hardwick to stay on as coach, but changes must be made going forward. "

 

So even when they get their [censored] together to oust the board, they're still delusional enough to want to keep Spudwick?

I can only imagine it's for cost reasons. Whoever approved that contract extension needs to get the arse.

It just makes me smile, Sucked in Richmond I hope they are down the bottom for as long as we were.

Disagree, very bad Karma to make comments like this. Be careful what you wish for. Coming from decades of despair, I feel sorry for the true Tiger supporters. I don't know why people should get such pleasure out of the miseries of others. They are a true blue footy club with a rich history and culture and real supporters unlike many of the franchised or new clubs that have been created out of the ether. Go Tiges.

Hardwick must be on a fortune. God only knows why....

I can only assume the entire board saw we were getting our act together and felt they needed to fill the hole of 'league basket case'.

They are even better at it than we are so i am happy to pass the baton!!

Technically, I think the fourth dot point should say, "Damien Hardwick has our unanimous support but we would not be serving our members if we didn't immediately commence a search for the best available coach should Damien wish to move on"

You're good at this, DVC. Maybe you should challenge the RFC board!

Quite telling - a table from the Rich Board challengers on botched recruiting:

The team.

On the bench are: Heppell, T. Mitchell, Ziebell, J. Lewis.  Emergencies: Gunston, Monfries, Shiels.

Dr Hiscock:  "Why did the club even contemplate a road to nowhere recruiting strategy?"

I guess that is easy to say with hindsight but it is hard to understand how they missed all those players.

Woeful recruiting!!!

Maybe Neil Balme can bring Derek Hine with him from the Pies. :ph34r:

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
