I find it a strange choice to elect Matty Boyes the president when he hasn’t even been on the board yet. No doubt this was a ploy by the gnome to block someone else from getting the presidency or to think he has a puppet as the president. However, whether the gnome knows it or not, I don’t think Boyes will be anyones puppet. He is a professional, clear thinking individual. MOTHS will try to hoodwink him and at times may succeed but given time you will see Boyes as the individual he is. He will act for the good of the sport as he knows it. Same probably goes for Cato given his day job. He no doubt has loads of integrity and I would be surprised if he acted knowingly as anyones puppet.
I would have preferred McManus to stay as I believe he was a strong leader acting in the face of some strong opposition, however, what is done is done. So let’s support these new guys, get in their ear if you have a suggestion and try and keep the sport moving forwards. “The pack” as Youngy beautifully put it or MOTHS as others have stated, will always be there. It is the nature of our sport. It is up to individuals out there to rally together (and individually) to get behind and push any good ideas they have to keep our sport moving in the right direction.

As per usual, Ribera offering the voice of reason.

If as Ribera is suggesting, Matt Boyes is a 'clear thinking individual' I wonder how long it will take before Matt Boyes realises the Gnome has less to offer than what he may have initially thought. One can only fool some of the people some of the time.

btw, with watchdog, topdog, lapdog and underdog - dare I say it, BUT.....

I think people are jumping at shadows. There are only minimal changes to what the board was previously. Boyes has come in for McManus and I don't think we'll lose anything there with Matt's credentials. Lehmann and Astill haven't been around for quite a while and Terry and Cato have come in to fill their holes. Don't tell me that with Cato's day job ,he is going to be pushed around.

34 Re: VAL AGM election results on Sat Aug 13, 2011 10:54 pm


Who's the Gnome? What's Cato's day job?

Please help those of us new to proceedings.

Cato is a policeman. Read it in his profile.

Gnome = Wally M.

Forget the constitution and all that guff. Lets look morally at this.
It seems to be mainly newly established clubs that have initiated this coup.
What do the established clubs who have operated for more than 10 years think. Clubs below.

This is an issue that has needed to be addressed by the VAL for many years. The voting rights of clubs in no way reflect the composition of the VAL.

It is not right for a Clubs like Stawell, Ballarat, and Maryborough, Keilor etc. (who have a long proud history and offer good prize money) …to have the same voting rights as small clubs that have been in the sport for five minutes and offer little more than sweep stacks prize money……but unfortunately for anything to change the small clubs need to vote in favour of the change…..which they have been reluctant to do so over the years. There used to be a rule that 50% of the board positions were for regional clubs but this seems to have disappeared.

This may result in Stawell going it alone and handicapping and administering their own meeting and if they manage to get a couple of other large disgruntled clubs to go with them then it could have dire consequences for the VAL.
