Gill’s legacy

Legends of 2017

Mar 24, 2005
King of the coverups
Seriously, how many scandals have been swept under the carpet during his reign? I reckon we could start not only a new thread on those but a whole website
He should seriously be investigated, along with the commission, by the authorities for his and their conduct

Lots of mentions above of many failings. A fair number of these could be disputed, there must be one person out there who thinks the stand rule is ok, just one?

But, I have to go with Redmond on this one.

To me the biggest legacy of Gill and his biggest failing is that just about everyone who loves Australian Rules Football hates the AFL. The governing body of the game, the peak competition of our wonderful sport, the most popular sport in the country . . . has a governing body that everyone believes is corrupt and no-one has any respect for.

A truly terrible legacy.

Sounds like American politics!

Jerry Gee has turned the fans against the game. That’s his legacy.

The fans still love their clubs, but they don’t love the game that this dishonest corporate sap has left us with.

Dunno about Gilligan's legacy, he's certainly leaving a dirty great skid mark on our game though.

The Tasmanian Jack Jumpers season memberships for the 2023 NBL season just sold out in 26 minutes.

Think about that for a minute (or 26).
