Sack Don Furner

Post by afgtnk » June 30, 2018, 9:40 pm

Why no thread on this **** EDIT?

Why is that the CEO of every other organisation on the planet comes under the spotlight and he doesn't?

When is he ever responsible for anything? 10 years and what does he have to show?

Right now what he's got is a salary cap that we quietly know has been **** beyond belief and it has his incompetent finger prints all over it.

For the love of Mark **** Asbock sack EDIT and send him back to manage shifts at Queanbeyan Leagues where he belongs.

He’s gotta go along with Stuart and Mulholland
The ceo picked to replace him needs a total clean slate
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers & Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

Prepare the cannon!

Is there another Furner son somewhere? Maybe a grandson who could be quickly groomed for the role?

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

It is no coincidence that the teams who are contenders year after year are the ones who have the best CEO’s. Burn it to the ground salt the earth!

The whole lot, from the Chair of the Board down to the coaching staff, needs to be nuked and rebuilt. Quarantining Bonehead as much as possible from the process is a must if we're ever to get out of this crap-filled hole of mediocrity.

To me he's the very emblem of what's wrong with this club.

Came into the job under qualified and only by virtue of his surname.

Been here for 10 years and I can't recall a single signature achievement of his to note. No vision, no energy, no passion, no leadership. A nondescript bore who's level is no higher than to keep something ticking along without ever significantly improving it.

Clubs like the Cronulla **** Sharks, for decades a joke of the competition, stuck in a complete **** heap, go out and recruit one of the best sports administrators in Lyall Gorman who turns them right around. We still stick with old Teflon Don.

It seems no matter what happens to us, the guy manages to escape any kind of significant scrutiny or pressure.

Certainly there's momentum building here, for what it's worth. But while membership numbers continue to rise, I think Don will have a semi-credible shield against any attempts to winkle him out.

The board shouldn't be let off the hook either.

What's the link between rising memberships and expenditure on membership advertising

As in, have the Raiders got bang for their buck with membership numbers vs advertising dollars spent? No idea. Happy for figures if you or anyone else has them. I'd hazard a guess and say they've probably got a reasonable return, but that's based on nothing more than a gut feeling.

I’ll tell you were I’m at. If there is no change to coaching and management next year, I’m voting with not renewing my membership. I’ll still support but won’t be a member and will probably attend less games
