Finally someone in the media, who is a non-football person, rather he's an NRL commentator gives it to Gallop

Excellent stuff.

Mainstream Media against the FFA and especially David Gallop

That article is not good news. It's the board avoiding any repercussions of their own failings in this debacle.

Same old shite time and time again.

Still like to see Gallop gone sooner rather than later. Board can wait.

662 now  - not exactly galloping away tbh (couldn't resist the pun).

But numbers are building.

They've jumped 20 in the last 20 mins!

I added Mistah Campoy's request and the petition to my signature...so wherever I post (for a while) it will reach those on the forums who don't visit this Thread - which I don't do on a regular basis. Probably most forumites here are happy to sign.

I hope you don't mind Wendy but I edited the sig to clean up the links and get rid of some weird formatting issue from it being copy-pasted.

Much better now - thanks! :good:

 

PS You probably have a very tidy room?

JP would approve! :lol::lol:

I cleaned it a few weeks ago so it's definitely better than it used to be.

Errrr no....JP would not find that satisfactory, I don't think.

Anything could go astray in "a few weeks"!  :lol:

It's a shame GetUp! probably wouldn't be interested in this issue! :lol::lol:

They'd have 10,000 by now!

Yes - it's up to over 750, but that isn't progressing as fast as would be good to see.

I don't think many people know about this site and that signing a petition can create a real change if there is enough people to get behind it.. TBH this a lot more then i thought it would be at this point :D once theres a few thousand and starts being shared a lot more on social media platforms it will pick up.. Fingers crossed

At least 800 signatures in 3 days is not bad. 

Maybe a few people about the FFA clauses. Just sign anonymously and it's sweet. If we get 5000 signatures whilst the inquiry and Gallop performance review, then maybe we could see the end of the MSM buddy.

A pertinent article

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-02-15/ffa-floundering-after-alen-stajcic-matildas-sacking/10812536

Despite all the changes, we're not getting any better at running our game, even if the causes/problems are different the result is the same.

Its now quite clear that the new board are just Gallop's puppets and how Fosters bid for a board spot was spat on by Gallop's toxic culture he has created as he knew Foster would make a real difference and potential take his spot.. Talk of the sacking and FFA board starts at 6.00 mark

Football in Australia is known for its highly toxic politics at all levels, but the issues with the Board are all the fault of the CEO who came in from outside the game? Right.

I don’t mind Gallop. He seems to have built a career as a sports administrator who somehow manages to adequately handle hospital pass after hospital pass (and if he doesn’t manage it he usually takes the hit for the Board or broader organisation). The game could do a lot worse.

Lol. Don't say that too loud. The dude is spending most of his time watching Fox News  and eating KFC, in his "executive time".

For the life of the A-league, the FFA's biggest mistake has been hiring ex-administrators of other sports. John O'Neill, (Rugby Union), Ben Buckley (AFL) and Gallop (Rugby League). WTF did these clowns know or understand about football and our unique culture? Under their regimes, the sport has lurched from one catastrophe to another, and none of them knew how to handle each debacle. It is why the national competition has been slowly going backwards for years now after such a positive beginning.

Surely, the FFA Board could scour the world for a proven CEO that understands the game, its culture and its fans. How could they possibly think otherwise, after the **** storm of negative publicity the aforementioned dickheads have overseen.

Football is my passion, and the Wanderers are the pinnacle of that passion. It burns my heart to see what has happened under years of delusional and blind leadership.

For the record, I watched this yesterday, and it lifted my spirits, albeit briefly. If anyone has a spare 52 mins and 9 secs over the weekend, I highly recommend it for your mental football health. It made me smile. It made me teary. It made me happy. I'm hoping Parra (V 2) will do the same.

I also hope that whoever represents us on the field next year, takes a leaf out of the mentality of players like Cole (you legend). Amazing to hear him speak like this (as well as Topor and Covic). I'd forgotten that  Haliti was so influential in that campaign. Also, look at some of the squads we put on the field (bog average) , and the conditions in which they had to endure (e.g. - playing 3 days after a grand final loss in Brisbane and then winning a game in another country). It's seriously inspirational stuff.

Great post WB, and thanks for posting that! :good:

 

Too late to watch it all now - but watched the first 20 mins....and I'll watch the rest on the weekend.

It feels really quite unbelievable to have lived through that.

Not sure that I will experience such heady times again - but I'm very grateful to have experienced those.

 

PS The look on NTS's face as his goal was mentioned - gold!!

Good joke. We should be so lucky, if nothing else he's an excellent administrator.

Thanks. You're so right, watching it certainly lifted my spirits.

On the subject of CEOs, I think getting O'Neill as the first one was a good move. It avoided the risk of bias and accusations of bias to any part of the old or new elements of football. And so signalled that things would actually be different. Plus, he was a very good administrator with an excellent reputation (wasn't he involved with the 2000 Olympics). He did better than ok as CEO and left too soon. Given O'Neill's early departure, repeating the non football choice with Buckley might have been the right decision at the time. However, his tenure, combined with O'Neill's, was too long. Then sticking with a non football choice with Gallop was just plain wrong.
