Not sure about the angst in saying if the season goes bad it will be brought up.

There have been plenty of passionate Tigers on here questioning if it could have an impact on the team.

If we have a bad season everything and anything will be blamed by someone.

History would say we can't sustain this dominance for much longer, in fact we've probably already gone longer than expected.

Whether this saga will have an effect on the season at large remains to be seen. Personally I think it’s unlikely.

But on a smaller scale it is hard to deny the effect so far. Dimma has been ebullient, confident, bright and chirpy in recent years, particularly 2017-2019.

Already with Garry and Tim, ostensibly two allies, he was forced into dour mode right off the bat. A shame for February, when all should be sunshine and roses.

The power brokers at the club will be mildly disappointed that the focus, at least for the time being, is on Dimma and not the club’s amazing achievements.

This will turn. The season will begin and the industry will move on. But Dimma has lost the merest sliver of goodwill and it’s noticeable if nothing else.

Sorry Dimma. IMO once you get your 10th premiership I reckon you best to move on.

being an outsider it looks like it has been handled well internally
our threat now is if someone like Caro just attacks the issue , at every opportunity, all season long and then internet trolls finally jump on board
and it gets out of hand

hopefully as time elapses and new hot issues surface (Eddie was a good one ) and this fades into the background , where it belongs

Yep. Every single story about the club, whether it’s on Dimma, any player or even official, seems to have a rule that it must mention the “scandal “

How's that Jon Ralph dhead the other day when Chimpa was doing a presser. He just insisted on quizzing Chimpa over and over about Hardwick. Chimpa would say something like its "private and personal within the Hardwick family" etc. and even referred to the press group about actually asking a footy related question, but that dick Ralph just kept on asking about Hardwick and his affair and impact on the club etc.

FFS. If it didn't infuriate you, the low brow, mucky and REPETITIVE nature of the AFL media would certainly bore you to death.

In other words, you’d be bored to death if they didn’t infuriate you? Same for me.

So why invest countless hours of attention into something boring that you don’t like and infuriates you, but is purely optional?

You can ween yourself off it, there’s a support group on here to help you! :p

As a football follower are you suggesting its possible to avoid the sh*t they come out with ? I would challenge that e.g. if you wanna watch and listen to Chimpa's interview and hear what the great man has to say, its impossible to do so without some dud like Ralph (or someone else) making a fool of themselves in between. And that's just one example.

Imagine having to front up and ask those questions every day! FMD I'd rather collect JobSeeker rather than be an ongoing embarrassment to myself, my family and friends.

Why isn't Ralph mouth asking Simpson and Buckley the same question's??
Ralph is unbearable.
Floats with the breeze, he is the first to pound us when something goes wrong but always has the big smile when where we are wining.
He is another who tipped against us.

When he was on SEN, Lyon kept asking Hardwick over and over again about the situation between himself/Danielle/the club. He kept on trying to say "I dont wanna dwell on this yadda yadda" but that's exactly what he did.

I didn't mind him asking the first question about how Dimma addressed the players, but then he just went on and on. It got to the point where Hardwick said enough is enough. And then afterwards, clearly a lot of other listeners thought it was over the top too judging by the texts and feedback they were receiving.

The irony of someone like Lyon of all people, pushing (disingenuously) the envelope on such a subject.....geezuz.

And as for Goodwin and Buckley, Lyon and Watson were challenged about that the other day too. Their response was Goodwin and Buckley are "different." Apparently Hardwick's situation involves the club and Goodwin and Buckley's dont. You know, sorta like their wives never had anything to do with anyone at the Dudbourne and Dudwood clubs ever.

How about hooking up with your best mates wife?
They are going with all angles to try to derail us.
They only thing capable of stopping us (*besides injuries) is ourselves.
We had a truck load of 'outside' footy issues last year and we won the flag by 6 goals in a shorter version.
They should know by now that there shiit dosent effect the group.
