    so we are blaming the new board that has been in for 5 minutes for not updating the facilities yet :crazy:

    wonder what happened to the money from the two blues club, but than selling assets become important in inflating the bottom line to justify the change of board and now we are where we are.

    at least we still have Roy on the football board. :p

    Born, I don't ca way who runs the club. I happen to know that the plan wasti use the funds from the sale of a loss making club to find football club upgrades. Apparently the vote was more important than the upgrade, and we are stuck with an ordinary loss making club that Fitzy bought to sell as the land was more valuable than the purchase price.

    I have been around a lot longer than you and just want what is best for the Eels, couldn't care less who does what as long as we move forward.

    I find it hard to believe we can not find finance to improve the football facilities without the sale. The old board made so much about the bottom line they were to scared to make hard decisions for the long term betterment of the team. They had payed off some debt so would imagine they could borrow some more if required.

    We have supposed to have made something like a $6M profit last year, I wonder what $5M buys these days?

    I think if you care to check up Brian smith basically had the same facilities at what is there now. Same training field,same gym, same parra pool, etc. don't know if he had a sports science dept.

    Well at least we have some good escalators and (privately operated?) restaurants inside the club now.... that 2008/9 change at Board level was sure worth it :sarcasm:.

    our gym can't be too bad if Olympic athletes and others like Danny green used it

    we also have a sports science department that is supposedly good according to Roy Masters

    This thread gives alot of answers to questions why the club is where it is. If it's not pissing and moaning about newspaper articles its getting little 1 up manship by hero who hide behind screen names. Any half decent supporter base should be demanding answers what the boards plans are to rectify the train wreck and not settle for blame games or piss weak interviews/emails.

    The current mob need to come up with better ideas than that embarrassing raffle.

    Agree! What has the current board put in place to rectify the situation?
    All we keeep hearing is rumours and innuendo about reviews of the coaching department.
    Perhaps there should be a review of the current board itself!
    Nothing of any substance has been implemented in the last 5 months.

    Oh, sorry! Lets take a trial and a home NRL game to the NT. How many away matches has the Club won in the last two seasons!!

    Pou, you are apparently a smart bloke, the improvements to the club were necessary to bring it on par with other venues

    I think you have been in WA, the club had fallen behind Wenty Leagues and Castle Hill RSL, two of its biggest rivals. The work was needed and should have been done under previous watch to ensure patronage wasn't lost

    The revenue comes from the club not necessarily from the football side of things, bit harsh there

    You poor fools. You blame the new board for this?

    They weren't the ones who let us get to where we are today. FMD there are some stupid people around here.
