    Walker said the NNSWF board was concerned about proposed changes to an abstinence rule governing FFA director appointments, the timing of new congress membership and gender equality requirements.
    yep, looks like they are holding football to ransom in order to tackle all the big issues.

    Also, they are worried the A-League clubs running the A-League will be at the detriment of grassroots football. If only organisations like NNSW etc had enough time and track record in order to keep rego costs down, not have outlandishily expensive rep pathways and work together with other federations and other involved bodies in order to streamline the football family tree.


    yep, if only.........

    Northern didnt ever make it out that they were Lowys lackies

    It was every two bit journos coming up with these assessments of NNSW NT ACT and Tas Feds coupled with every nutter on Sockah Twitte having a crack because they were buying the medias spin hook line and sinker

    Where Northern failed is being clueless enough to let weeks go by whilst their name was dragged through the mud of public opinion.before opening their gobs to state their point of view on the matter

    End of day these small feds were never going to be Lowys lackies but more concerned with their own continued existence and keeping their power in any reform

    He actually states that Northern has no issue with the proposed congress make up. And has made no mention of problems against the A league clubs running the league. The problem is that they should have vocalised this weeks ago, it appears that they are in board with the bulk of the proposals but see some finer details that need tweaking, this is perfectly normal in such a big change to an organization, this seems a bit different from the ACT who are just in Lowys pocket. The media keep calling Northern a small and minor player with Tas and ACT but NNSW have more registered players than SA and QLD

    he can state whatever he wants, the simple fact is that his organisation is being asked to hand over a hell of a lot of their power, and thats just something that most people in his position arent down with.

    seriously though, is anyone out there singing from the rooftops about how good a job NNSW is doing?
    small sample size i know but jeez they have to be about the most complained about organisation around these parts.

    prob the perfect thing that could happen to them is having a whole heap of their cash and power taken off them, maybe then they'll concentrate on their core business.

    They and others have been doing this since 2006 selling the dream to " my kids the best " parents. It is what funds the game because the game can't fund itself from the top down so what better form of revenue generator than a parent who thinks there kid is the best. Every kid who can kick a ball is now elite because there is a quid to be made from it and a parents ego to stimulate.

    Gender equality or gender bullying? If 3 guys can run the league then so be it. tokenism to stop the bad press of the feminazi regime.

    Women didn't want to know about it until they got their league up and running. Before that it was i'm sick of you lazy men watching football again.

    No expansion?

  18. #1138
    No word on it. But, given the new congress will be meeting next month to elect new directors, and there are a number of new standing committees to be formed, I wouldn't be surprised if the announcement (or even the expansion) gets delayed.

    Why the heck did we resign Boogs this early? He is one injury away from retirement! Why not wait until mid season and do it then. Its not like he's gonna have offers to play elsewhere. Nobodies loses that way and we mitigate a bit of risk throughout the season.
