But the actually words in the article which that is based on "Mark Ives is very good.".
Followed by numerous other quotes about him understanding the predicament of clubs and that he does listen to them.
I think that's "blah blah". I could fish out numerous quotes stating the opposite.
Lo. Let’s briefly run through the bigger mismanagement issues that the League decision makers have served up lately.
We have the multiple cock ups re last years play off games.
The allocation of grants.
Commissioning a report about the distribution of these grants then not acting on it and suppressing it, some people say there are issues of dishonesty here.
Then we have the grants will be loans fiasco and the fact that no minutes were taken in any of the big meetings where this was discussed, “a schoolboy error” D.J. was quoted as saying.
Then dragging their heels at the end of the season in relation to what to do - and as in the previous play off issue, clubs are asked to vote on ill thought out proposals.
And in the case of the fines imposed for not fulfilling fixtures, saying one thing and doing another.
As a side issue throughout all this Barwick has been missing in action - or missing in inaction BOOM BOOM
So by memory Lo, I’m sure you’ve defended everyone involved here. I’m sure I can remember you saying stuff like “don’t blame the board members, they’re only volunteers” “don’t blame Barwick and Ives as we could get worse” but come on. If no humans can be held to blame for the state the league is in then what’s the point in having anyone? We might as well be run by a computer, but even on saying that, computers can be re programmed (by humans)
These people have been put in place to do a job and they’ve failed. All of them!
If nothing at all is expected of them because no one can change anything, or nothing is expected from them in the way of doing things properly and fairly then they might as well employ a computer - or me, because I haven’t got a job at the moment. What I’m saying is -these people are more than just figureheads, there is something expected of them re the positions they hold.
I don’t understand your viewpoint Lo tbh.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"
