totally agree with Tony B-Hicks
keep that bloke 1,000 miles away from the place
we need quality smart strong and independent thinkers, not followers who are full of their own self importance
I had a bit to do with himWayne didn't achieve great success at Tigerland and it can be argued that GWS has underdelivered since (and before?) he was there. Also there was always chatter about figjamism at Tigerland among the leadership group while he played.
But apart from such scuttlebutt, what's the evidence behind statements that he needs to be kept 1000 miles away? Is it scapegoating or does anyone have anything solid to offer?
I always noticed he & Knighta, two top players, never really got on close. Same with Chimp & Lids.I had a bit to do with him
There was definitely Figjam within the playing group that existed when he first arrived at Richmond and was passed down to guys like Lids. Us and them ( young players ) mentality that has now completely changed. Campbell, Daffy, and even Knights didn’t see it as their job to inspire or encourage others.
He’s also not a natural communicator nor media performer so could never see him as a CEO. He’s a football administrator at best but he’s certainly not cancer. He does have a look on his face that people don’t naturally warm to
I wouldn't say I know him well but I've seen him on various occasions in a range of settings.How do you know him Richo?
I remember a bit of figjamism through the media in the early/mid 90s when he and Daffy were at their peak.I wouldn't say I know him well but I've seen him on various occasions in a range of settings.
Apart from a shared involvement in the AFL industry we also come from the same area of Country Victoria and played in the same footy league.
Every time I have seen him I've been unimpressed with how he treats ordinary people. I find him arrogant, rude and just plain lacking in manners.
