**** great idea... but go with me here... this will be a wild **** ride for all.
What if...

What if we replaced Don Furner Jr with someone who... y'know... isn't an old boy? Maybe we could expand the net beyond people already known in the Raiders universe? Maybe look at someone who is proven as capable of being able to deliver in a highly competitive environment, where there are significant disadvantages/challenges.

Or maybe we just run it back. Clyde as CEO, Cappy **** McFadden as HC, Terry Campese installed as the heir apparent. Easy money.

I gotta wonder sometimes what sort of pills some of you people are taking.
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 and Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

You can't exclude someone simply because they have an association with the club. That would exclude Bellamy, McGuire and Siebold as future Raiders coaches and dozens of other former players who have developed successful careers off the field in their own right.

Merit should decide who replaces Don and Sticky if or when they quit or resign.

Sometimes you just need a quota to remove a systemic imbalance. You should be on board with that GEM

Right now Raiders need a quota of employees without prior Raiders association. Diversity people!

When I was working at Defence, Clyde would sometimes help out in his dad's window-cleaning business. He's come a long way since then.
Some people talk about the weather. Others do something about it.

When you've been run the way this club has for the past 20 years?
You **** bet you can.

The people you mentioned... Bellemy etc, they has a proven track record doing the jobs they would be hired to do. Bellemy in particular is maybe the best to do it.
You can justify old boys in that circumstances. Clyde has absolutely no proven history at running a football club. Why on earth would we go and replace DFJ with another unproven old boy?

Clyde is already GM of a decent sized commercial enterprise, that makes him more proven than DFJ ever was.

Logical fallacy.

Because something is worse, doesn’t make the first option good.

Exactly. Clearing an incredibly low bar doesnt mean Clyde is the best option.
I've said it before, and ill say it again, at this point we need a fresh break from all of this. Even if Clyde is deemed qualified and a good candidate, he's not the only one... find someone else who is equally qualified and a good candidate who ISN'T coming here with existing relationships etc.

At least do that for like 4-5 years, a circuit breaker who knows no one and nothing of the people involved so we get a proper fresh set of eyes on this.

Clyde may be a good NRL CEO, i dont know. But IMO, and for reasons that have nothing to do with his abilities or lack of, he would be the exact wrongsort of hire for this club if DFJ ever left/was fired

Looks to me like DFJ has a job for life if he wants it. Who is going to fire him? We've hardly been an organisation that is exempt from a blowtorch yet that is precisely how it's been.
