    The whole Spags and Fitzy situation reminds me so much of my ex girlfriend.

    I mean, you know its bad for you and have all the reason and proof to understand that, everyone hates them (her) but there is something exotic and exciting that sees you let them back in from time to time, even though ultimately you know it'll end in tears. This can all happen whilst you have something better going on (current Mrs / Donnelly).

    P.S Ex, if you're reading this I Hate You! (please call me).

    Bring him on.
    I'll slap him down so he can cry in the gutter next to his best mate Spags.

    They don't care about the club, they only care about themselves and being in power.

    They surely believe them being involved is what's best for the club. It's easy for them to point at the other mob and say that was the problem all along. Confirmation bias at work. They're not the only ones either.

    Close Pou, but no choccies.

    They believe them being in power is what's best for themselves, they don't care about what's best for the club. If they did, they would acknowledge that the past needs to be wiped clean and we need to start fresh.

    Thinking something is best for ourselves leads naturally to believing it is also best for others. Look at progressivism - it claims to be about what's best for everyone else but at its core it is pure selfishness.

    Niemöller summed it up perfectly: "...Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me." If something is best for an individual he will find it very hard to see why it would be detrimental to anyone else. Fitzgerald and co know for a fact that they are the best people for the club. Like the shitty parent who doesn't understand that their kids would be better off without them.

    If you think these idiots don't care about the club you don't understand people.

    Ok
    A) I don't want to argue with you, because it's ultimately a waste of time. and
    B) You misunderstand what I mean, I'm sure in their own twisted minds they think they are doing what's right for the club, but they don't care about what those actions are actually doing to the club, they don't care about the damage they are causing, hence, from the outside perspective the don't actually care about the club as it exists.

    Mate I am certain 'they' believe all the damage is being done by 'the other mob' opposing them. And I'm not certain I can say they're wrong. As I see it the majority, if not the totality, of damage has been done by a succession of vindictive oppositions. Of course that includes the people we are talking about, but remember this is about the Leagues Club, and it is doing just fine, even after suffering some big losses in recent years trying to buy success for the NRL team.
