I know quite a few people (and I agree) that thought Peggy's comments about the functions and how she couldn't care if she didn't host another dinner and we don't make money on functions anyway, were very disingenuous. A lot of people pour serious dough into the club and those functions are part of their package. The club mightn't make money on the actual function, but they do on the coterie membership packages and that comment is disrespectful. Especially when you consider that in 2020 people paid lots of money last year and didn't receive their benefits.I have Jb. On Big Footy, many other supporters reactions to the Hardwick/Richmond parts are usuallly something like:
1. Dimma is a great communicator
2. I never liked Dimma, especially his smug smirk, but credit to him. You can see why all the players play for him.
3. Gale and Peggy show why Richmond is a great organisation.
4. A few thought Peggy was boring and not much chop.
5. Couldnt believe a few of the supporters thought Malcolm Speed was better than Peggy! My reaction when I watched Speed - was thank goodness Peggy is the Pres.
I also thought the snippets of the Board meetings were somewhat underwhelming, IMO they totally overplayed the Chol situation and I think it was obvious that both the players and coach didn't think anything of it and the Board over played the PC card, which they have a tendency to do.
