A long time ago, the WAFC tried to force the FFC to play and train at the WACA. A stadium built for cricket and with a capacity of just over 20,000.The members and supporters fought the battle against this and won.It was more than likely our first win over the WAFC, which back in those days, and still today consider us an menace to them.They don't care.
There was a rally through the streets of Fremantle to express our disgust at the thought bubble from the WAFC.
Yes we have now moved from the Fremantle Oval, but now we have a training facility that is the envy of a lot of clubs in the AFL.
We also now, through the participation of members and supporters of the club, have the same rights as the Eagles.Play at the number one stadium in Australia.Though that wan't the case at the time.
From memory at the same time, we pushed to have a say on the Board of the club, through having elected members on the Board.We also won this, by being a group of strong people.
We still have a voice on the Board....... or do we.
When was the last time any one heard anything from OUR Board members!!!!
Should we have the right to bring these members to the table twice a year to answer questions from the members of the club. Should we be able to ask questions on why things aren't happening!!!
We have heard very little from any Board member this year, when we have had a somewhat volatile season.Both on and off the field.
So many complaints have been put to the Board, but no response from them.I believe that their lack of response tot he issues has been part of the cause of the problem we have had.Those not happy have run to the media and that has given the 7 West Media and 6PR a chance to belittle the club and our former coach.A campaign that was media driven.
What does everyone think.
