Look, I will start by saying 2 things:
- I have no knowledge of the dramas (porngate & power struggles) apart from what has been reported, but that doesn’t stop others from speculating
- I still consider that going into the season we had a good side, and that good players don’t become bad players over night or over an off-season
Something, or things, has clearly gone wrong to completely put our performances on the field way below expectations. I fear that the inappropriate behaviour runs much deeper & many at our club are aware of this. Some of you will recognise that I have little time for Gould, but I can clearly still see right now the look on his face when he spoke of the issues in that interview with the dribbler - he was shattered.
Maybe I am totally wrong, but I see in our club a great divide between the players who are family men, with moral & religious convictions & another group, not so much. Was the behaviour so bad, that the two groups just cannot work together??
Kevin, I am guessing, is referring to an ex-player who’s game fell apart after a break-up, seemingly that another ex-player was involved in.
In any case, the facts need to come out, at least within the footy club, the air be cleaned and ‘punishments’ metred out, and we start anew. I don’t care where the blame lies, it needs to be fixed.
It’s as if the world changed the day Gould sacked Griffin, but now it seems the sore was already festering.
I have been here since '67 and will be here until my final siren, and I am pained by what is happening.
