It's a curious one. An email address is just that and easily changed. it reveals next to nothing.

A postal address reveals where you live, unless you have a post office box, and is potentially more sensitive than a location in the ether.

Given an email address can be linked to so many online services and accounts these days, it can also be quite sensitive.  Certainly I would prefer neither to be accessible for myself!

Thanks for the excerpt of the privacy policy!

The club would likely be unwilling to rely on the privacy policy here as a source of implied consent for third party disclosure because the section in question is all about the AFL's or club's corporate partners or sponsors. It would be a stretch to say this extends to a third party who is neither a corporate partner nor sponsor.  Potentially there is more luck regarding facilitating internal business... except it is still going to an external third party.  

Even before the Optus data breach, the Office of the Information Commissioner was very clear express consent is best for disclosure to third parties - and so drawing a long bow from a privacy policy (which is implied consent at best, depending on implementation on a website) is really sticking one's neck out.  

That being said, seems like Judge Riordan is being very practical about this (thankfully) and seems he will likely ask the club to provide the communications on Lawrence's behalf.

Watch this peter voldermort  complain if a few members say the didnt  get the email . Out of 65k members a few emails will bounce

I do not want my email/contact details made available to just anyone and I do not give permission for the club to release them to third parties.

I expect the club to defend this issue.

A local govt councillor friend of mine says its against the State's electoral Act , for example, to use business mailing lists to cold-canvas voters in Council elections.

Why is this any different?

Go Dees for 2023. 

Yet I get spam calls every other day from people telling me theyre from the ATO, Commonwealth Bank, Amazon, Telstra etc

He's already entitled to postal addresses, I don't see what the big deal is with releasing email lists.

Because 65k email addresses potentially hacked ( see optus , medicare private ) despite good intentions  could generate so much spam .

I stand 100% with the Board on this issue. I’d be furious if they gave out my email address without asking me. Especially if not required to by law. 

Lots of people here seem so willing to give up their personal information… it’s bizarre.

They give all that information to sponsors anyway, why would you be furious if it was given to a member to enable a democratic process to proceed? What are you worried is going to be done with an email address?

Goes straight to spam folder. You don't think these spammers and scammers already have access to databases of email lists (including yours) by other means? It seems a pretty long bow to draw, for those not old enough to remember we used to have giant books thrown on our doorstep with all this personal information included.

Additionally the main concern with data breaches like Optus and Medibank is around personal sensitive information such as driver's licence details, passport details, banking details, medical details. Not names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses.

It takes the best part of 2 terms (6 years) for a board member to really get up to speed. Why would you limit them to 3 years in the job? You’d have a new or inexperienced president every 3 years and that’s a disaster waiting to happen.

15 years for the president is spot on. 6 years learning the ropes and 9 years in charge if they’re up for it. 

Wow, can’t believe someone would seriously put that forward as an argument, but there you go….

We’re not talking about recruiting callow young ruckman here, where it takes several seasons to get them to maturity. I want quality board members who can hit the ground running and help make our club the best it can be from top to bottom for the whole of their terms. You make it seem like getting on the board is like being inducted into a cult.

I would have thought the difference is obvious.

I consent for my information to be given to sponsors. In fact, I opted out of sponsor emails so I don’t even get those.

I’m an Optus and Medibank customer. Any email he tries to send me will end up in Russia’s with whoever’s assumed my identity.

It makes me laugh to think that somewhere a hacker is shuffling through my digital footprint and wondering who the hell ‘Brett Lovett’ is, and why he’s the password to all my streaming services.

How can someone be ready to be President without doing at least 1 term (3 years)? And wouldn’t they be even better with 2 terms so they’ve gone through some ups and downs of the team, maybe moved around subcommittees, built relationships with club staff, got a feel for the AFL commission/executive, worked out who to trust in the media and so on. Doesn’t mean they aren’t great board members from day 1, just means they aren’t ready for the top job and the far greater scrutiny. 

And why would you toss out a competent President after at most 6 years and quite possibly under 3 in the top job? That means constant churn which leads to instability.

If you want a better analogy try coaches.

Even a great assistant coach prospect is better off with 3-6 years experience.

And then you’d be mad to not let a great senior coach do a full 9 years in the top job if they are successful. 

Term limits are only the end limits. Directors who don’t pull their weight should be let go. And the 9 year limit stays the same. The 15 year exemption is so you don’t rush Presidents in or out of the top job which requires more time.

In practical terms:

Kate Roffey joined the board in 2013, 9 years ago. If she was a regular board member it would be time for her to wind it up. Seems about right.

But after 8 years of solid service on the board she’s only been President for 1 year, it would be crazy to finish her up now. Makes perfect sense that she stays for up to 2 more terms in the top job. If she’s done well she’ll have served 7 years in the top job which is probably the perfect amount of time to make a difference then hand over.

People coming in from the Business world should get up to speed within weeks, not 3 years. 
That’s 3 cups down the gutter

Well I read the flyer so no need to send me something in gmail I will read next month…

As for the challenge, I’m not convinced; it is written poorly and far too biased in its construction.

I don’t think we should kid ourselves that football clubs should have pure ‘democratic’ functions and making it more difficult to create fissures is good for a club that just can’t seem to help itself be stable ever since you know what.

This bloke hasn’t got my vote for his changes to the constitution, or to be on the board, or whatever he decides to do next because someone in the coterie was rude to him or something.

Your email address is not the gateway to your soul, people.
 

Does the idea of receiving one unsolicited email genuinely bother anyone here? 
 

I mean, it seems to. I genuinely don’t understand why, though.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
