    Sale negotiations are tracking along very well at the moment. Some Key differences between the club and buyer have been resolved so its looking positive.
    This came from a club sponsor I saw after the game on Saturday.

    The silence from Shane is exactly what makes a mockery of this whole new ownership saga, we have heard it was imminent, something was happening soon and blah blah blah. Now with thugby league dominating deadlines and about to start, we become even more insignificant

    Rumours Perth found an owner


    It baffles me how we can constantly be “in talks”. Does something happen and they pull out?
    Do they see our debt bill? Do they see our staff bill? What do they see they turns them away?

    I have always at the cost of being called out for it i might add that Mattiske never really seemed the right man to be the EC of the Jets or any other professional sporting club for that matter.

    Ever since he was introduced to us in the role he has never really been the engaging type with an understanding that a sports club connects to its fans in a different way. In a way we are the consumers of what he is selling and we are encouraged to buy what he is selling through feeling we belong to the club and vica versa the club belongs to us. Our relationship to the club is tribal and inclusiveness that makes it feel like its ours. His target consumer is our support and he has never engaged us in a manner that resonates excitement and be proud of that tribal type support we bring.

    Ive said it before i am sure Mattiske is more than capable of performing in the role of MD, EC whatever title you wanna give him just not at a professional sports club. He struggles with one of the key requirements of the job description, Engagement. I once seen him wondering from the Western side of the ground to the Eastern side one afternoon prior to a game behind the posts and not once did he look up to hill at the Southern end and acknowledge those who recognized him as the CEO.

    I get Lawrie is a Gypo and all that but i don't think we have ever in the past had someone lead the club in the off field role who would have NOT wandered across close enough to the fence to offer a wave and a nod to those who would have recognized them. Lawrie, Con and even Griff in his role of football manager would have just with there natural instinct for club land and how it works would have walked right close to the fence and engaged because they just got it, Shane does not.

    Just my thoughts and observations and probably not worth shite.

    Shane loves and respects the club, as a result, won’t be mentioning anything to do with the sale of the club.

    Of course he does.
    Any fast talking used car salesman will don a suit and say things to stay in the seat and earn the big bucks for as long as possible.
    He has not done 1 thing to prove this wrong.

    I hope so, but hopefully more than "we're making good progress and hope to have an announcement in the coming months"
