    Not our f**king board. They think James Hasson and Rory O'Brien are better than Bromwich and JWH! We'll get the f**ken spoon!!!

    I think Foran Scott and Gordon won't play. The halves most likely will be Norman and Cornish

    Hopefully not. I think I'd drown in my own tears if he ripped his hammy playing in it.

    The thing with Bromitch is he does not take the sting out of teams like JWH does. This is a big thing as it tires them down. Why I am a fan of Klemmer.

    You make some good point on the CEO. Look at clubs like Souths, Tigers, storm, cowboys who all have had new CEO in the last 12 mths. What process did they use?was it the same? Did they all had different as to select CEOs. sure has got a favour from his mates at the club and on the board.

    That would be good as the nines is a lottery. And we had had injures to key players. The last 2 years. From what I hear the nines is losing a bit of its excitement and players are not that fussed on going, especially if they cop an injury that rules them out for the season

    Could someone please briefly summarise what the problem with Boulos is? Is it his mates, or his revealed ability? Is he just an unknown quantity or has he f**ked something up in the past?

    It's the perception that his primary qualification is a previous relationship with one or more board members, in a context of our club's administration over the last twenty or thirty years having been proven unprofessional and in many ways incompetent - and that this went hand in hand with executive staff being appointed not on ability but by reason of their compliance and ability to be controlled by board factions.

    I understand the concerns, because for too long (and one of the worst examples was the immediate predecessor) we have made internal appointments with connections to bird factions. That has been disastrous. This club, more than any other, has probably been crying out for fresh blood; genuine top level marketplace skills; top level professionalism and genuine experience.

    Boulos would not quite seem to stack up to those requirements Prima facie. He has a sports administration background, but it is hardly top shelf.

    I have set out the reasons I think it may not be as big an issue as it may have been in the first few months after seward's departure, but I can certainly understand the concerns to the contrary.

    has he a previous relationship with members of the incumbent board though?

    I thought the Tassie football association gig indicated he was brought in from outside of Parra?

    Boulos has experience running a sporting organisation. Massive difference to Seward, who was a marketing dude...

    If he was found suitable by an independent body, should we be so pessimistic at the outset?
