The video came out 5 minutes before somebody would have started a ‘When will our out of touch President communicate with the members?’ thread....

Did you miss the 20min press conference he held 3 days ago? It's here if you'd like to check it out.

I dunno Shane, I think it'd be better to let the dust settle a little further before posting that message, maybe next week once the season is done? It's probably semantics but it just seems weird to tape that message so soon after the press conference earlier in the week. I think it loses some of it's impetus.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

Keep it real. 5,000 seat renters is something near $3,000,000 revenue. This matters.

The man needs to say something, even if that something is not very much more than "I'll be telling you more stuff soon."

True, he might have gone a bit early because some people are still working their way through the grieving process but the season is over on Sunday. There's not much of a window.

I'm with Biz on the timing. This should have been part of the presser when they announced the Rossers were being moved on.

If they had to have a message now then it needed more substance to justify it. Being told that the club has made a decision (durr) and they're excited really doesn't justify sending out a special message because it basically says nothing. I was listening to it and thought whats the point. Basically he just said what they did on Tuesday and everybody already knew about that anyway. The only new thing was he said he listened to members.

Personally, if he was going to make a special effort to communicate with the supporters, he could have provided more detail on the road ahead, talked about how things would be improved over past performance, talked about a focus on player development as well as team development.

Basically outlined where the club was going to change the way it had done things and outlined their intentions from this point forward.

Saying stuff we already knew and then saying he was excited just made it seem like he had nothing important to say when everybody knows there should be important things to say. Just my view.

They sacked the coach and the CEO and you're nitpicking about a social media post from the president. It's going to be a long spring.

It was probably like Australian Survivor down at Cockburn the last couple of months.

The Rossich's got a couple of Idols from Fake Dave. It takes a while to set that stuff up. You're just happy to tell everyone you pulled it off.

As the man that was instrumental in getting shot of Lyon and Rosich, he can say whatever he wants to in my humble opinion

Just going to say whoever coached Dale for that probably went a bit over-board with the importance of expressive hand movements.

With my general suspicion of corporate presentation, i think it has gone down a little something like this:

PB*1: Gee, Dale performed impressively at that presser. Strong, with conviction!
PB*2: Agreed. He is an Assett. Why haven't we wheeled him out more often?
PB*1: Well, we haven't had to, its been the Rossesich show forever.
PB*2: Well now it isn't, get him out there! And sell it to the fans, make it a regular folksy thing. You know, man of the people!
PB*1: On it!

To be honest, I don't know what he said - what I heard was:
"I looked into the eye of the Devil and said 'Well, if that's how you feel about it Steve maybe you should just effing eff off. Good riddance ya w*nker'."
