So nobody got punched in the dick? That sure would've gotten the message across.
spot on.The players looked miserable. I can totally understand why, but yeah, it all seemed a bit of a shambles really.
Sure did look that way.The players looked like spoilt little brats actually. Moping like they'd been repeatedly told off. Which is probably accurate.
However, you've got a whole heap of young kids meeting you along with the people who keep the club alive and one of the only reasons you have a job at all - members. The kids are their meeting their heroes, people they look up to and want to be like. Look up, smile and engage with them. All I saw was heads down, bottom lips on the table looking like they hated every fucking second.
Body language is the great communicator and from what I saw it looked like a big "fuck you".
Putting yourself in the players shoes, I wouldn't want to be the smiling happy guy in front of the fans just now, not with our history of being sick of happy clowns laughing at training
That's how it all looks to me too from that Video.Agree, but it shouldn't be hard to find a happy medium. At least smile and look somewhat engaged. It's about professionalism when you're in the public eye, and especially when you're in front of the public like the guys were last night, you're going to be scrutinised.
Granted, I got this from a couple of minutes of video, so maybe what I watched is not representative of the whole day/night, but is seemed more like a funeral than a club gathering. We continually lament the lack of energy on the field, looks like it is the same off it.
I think that was the only way they could fit so many players in a line at tables for signing.It did look abit unprofessional didn't it? I mean it looked like they had just been squeezed into a unused corner of the club house, I mean come on Doyle sort ya shit out!!!

Yeah once I heard the responses from Doyle is was a little disappointed that we were going to get the usual deflective remarks. TBH I dont know why I was expecting anything more. Doyle was never going to throw the coach under the bus. The event didnt have that feel about it as well to be asking the hard questions. Too many kids there enjoying a family night out. Theres always the members forum thats yet to come which is the right format to be demanding answers.Awesome. Thank you so much for posting that video up. Unfortunately it sounds like to me more bullshit from Jim Doyle, where they try to deflect any blame or ownership of current problems facing club onto others such as coach or people who's job it is to report on it.
