It’s the first all-staff meeting leading into the Grand Final. Coach Shane Flanagan, CEO Lyall Gorman and Chairman Damian Keogh have a lot on their plate.
From a “documentary photographic” point of view then the job is just to objectively capture the moment(s) without comment.
As a fan and on-staff then to make sure the moment caught and available as part of a much longer archive.
And from a personal point of view what’s really interesting (to me at least) is the exploration of “time”, “memories” & perceptions.
From the politics/ business of sport (in that deliberate order) perspective there is no question (at least in my mind) with DK at the helm that the Club ran as a professional sports club (not perfect but professional [nothing is ever perfect]) with a strong power/ political structure; high-performance/ expectation culture and clearly defined and articulated strategic business plan (focused on customer experience) and operations in place.
Certainly, there were some excess, waste and some poor decisions/ behaviour but that’s for another day.
As a fan today (and student of culture and transformation) I simply look at the current situation and can only reflect –
Let history be the judge.
History the final judge.⠀
