Apart from the Candidate Profile Book, I haven't found details of pages or further information for other candidates - John Fenwick, Paul Walkden, Michael Furfaro, Joe Laws, Michael Jammal.
When/if they come to light, they can be added here (also by mods, if I'm not online).
Of the as yet unaligned candidates (listed below), I recall John Fenwick and Peter Thompson having run as individuals several times before... and Michael Johnson may be Dr Michael Johnson, former director from 2004-2010?
Why couldn't it be one of Fitzys buddies?? Or why couldn't it be a member not aligned with any faction who's got jack of this shit?? ... Maybe so some research on Andrew Eagleston and see who he's aligned with...personally I couldn't give a rats
Looks like Roy's boys/3P ready to strike again... :crazy:
From an article about 2015 elections (http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-league/...arramatta-eels-elections-20150428-1mvdag.html)...
Keep clear of the fruit loops!
Not just the other guys, but the guys before them as well. Then you can pretend you're independent and not part of a faction.
True. We haven't really voted anyone in recently. We just vote the current merkins out.
Call it NTPM and you are set.
So two different approaches.
1 that puts forward names of replacements and 1 that puts selection of replacements in the hands of an independent party.
Personally i prefer option 2 as the other option is effectively just a new faction.
Eagleston ran with ParraMount last election - they carred on like a bunch of merkins during the campaign, including a website containing information that they were legally forced to remove.
Eagleston represents the days of factionalism - the days we are trying to move past. I wouldn't trust a single person that had their name attached to ParraMount with the future of our club.
So if we want the appointment of some independent directors to go ahead in August (to satisfy the club's off-season agreement with the NRL) - we'd need to sabotage these attempts to force an EGM, perhaps by ensuring a non-member signs the petitions :sarcasm:?
Gee some people are hell bent on not letting our club recover, and work with the NRL to improve governance... hopefully the petition/EGM process falls over, and the Board (with independent Directors) can get on with trying to fix things before there are more elections/instability.
Having an external party select any replacement PLC board members removes the factions and moves us closer to the independent model you seek. Too bad the current PLC board don't seem to see it that way.
And don't forget the NRL don't and can't force changes to the PLC board. That's up to you Phantom and all the other voting PLC members. The August agreement with the NRL is for PNRL directors, not PLC directors.
Separate names with a comma.
