Seriously flogging a dead horse.all fof did was make fools of themselves.

All football dept changes where already done or in progress before they came out.

That's how I see it also.

I'm throwing my support behind a spill of the board at the end of the season.

I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

Which changes? They all happened after the challenge. FOF's legacy might be that no one ever tries to take on an incumbent RFC board again.

The pressure lead to significant changes in the football dept, which have paid big dividends on field.

On that basis he should take some credit for the action the board took and the subsequent turn around in our fortunes.

They certainly caused more pressure on the board but l fail to see how their keystone cops challenge made any difference to the plans already in place by the board nor to the results of the football department review.

They do not get any credit from me. They looked foolish and amateurish.

I just read your question and replies on the other thread.
I don't think his ability as a footballer is being questioned,but if he want's to come back to the club,be it on the board,why doesn't he challenge for vacant position,he's had plenty of chances too.
The same goes for Wood,twice he's been involved with failed attempts,obviously their ego's won't allow them to go through the same process that BTC did and many other's over the years .

The other thing is Monteith went back to Wa as a 25year old,and played 4-5 years of wafl,why not stay at Richmond,he was the Captain.

Monteith went back to WA in 1981 because he had played the whole 1980 season injured and thought he was cooked -- the Age article I've given the link to makes that pretty clear.

Most NFP's don't have nomination processes like RFC have adopted and most people won't go through these things unless they are tapped on the shoulder. Its how things like NFP directorships have always worked in the past and still do in small business. Monteith hasn't ruled out going for a position on the board in the future, but the role is unpaid and it looks to me as if he was in FOF in order to get someone he respected like Balme on board. He's pretty much said as much -- it was a shake up he was after and FOF and the Malvern group got that.

Most people in corporate life have colossal egos -- lawyers especially. Colossal ego = success.

Look like l said,it's flogging a dead horse .
Balme has said he wasn't approached by Fof,and as soon as the Magpies said Balmes position would change The Tigers pounced.
Richmond had already removed 3-4 assistants before Fof challenge .

Richmond where already making changes ,and Fof got a whiff,and tried to cash in,they did NOTHING BUT MAKE FOOLS OF THEMSELVES.

FOF said they approached Balme informally and he says they didn't approach him. That means you can either choose to believe Balme or FOF -- or you can assume that it was a bit of both. Usually with these kinds of things its a bit of both. I imagine Balme was making a distinction between "formal approach" and off-the-record sounding out. Either that or someone got their wires crossed at FOF's end.
