Agree with a lot of this. I think GWS got off to a bad start off-field. Selling games to Canberra (even though i understand both the demographic and financial reasons for doing so), half assed home ground at Blacktown that they couldnt use for half the year, calling themselves GWS (when they even registered the business entity as Western Sydney Football Club). Add Folau to that and you've got two years of false starts, hopefully now it settles down.
Never underestimate tradition. Its what keeps the Grand Final a) at the MCG and b) during the afternoon.
Those who can develop the games do. Those that cant or didnt, whine.
