    Some good statements. I feel the current incumbents have done well. However, I'm undecided whether it should be new guys every two years or not....

    Likewise - however, I'm leaning towards the feeling that the "blazer culture" of incumbents remaining in post in perpetuity is one of the problems in Scottish football. Which is not to say the current incumbents have done anything wrong, far from it. Perhaps a kind of rolling mix between continuity and change; i.e. for example, Amit remaining in post another year, with Frank replaced by one of the new folk, then Amit stepping aside next year, etc, etc?

    I dunno. What's great is that we are doing this kind of thing at all, tbh. It's all good, as far as this hibby is concerned.

    FWIW, I like Charlene for her working background, I feel like she could bring a lot to resolving the "matchday experience" issues with catering, turnstiles, etc.; and Pat, because, well, he's Pat, but more importantly I feel like he's got a voice with real clout.

    I think they all make good cases, though.

    Can't but help feel it's a vanity project for those seeking election.


    What's the criteria for being able to vote?

    like the idea of one of the current incumbents and one new director being voted on every two years. you could have one vote specifically for one of the standing directors to remain and on e for the newby. fwiw i think Amit or Frank plus Pat GGTTH

    Well one of the current ones will be going, as I'm pretty sure a massive amount of folk will vote for Pat.

    I was thinking if I excluded the current two then they would be my two too.

    Charlene appears to offer something different.

    I don't think the current board will exactly be ecstatic should Pat get on the board so that's good enough for me. We need a fans representative to not exactly be too pro board...

    Aye, its considered best practice in my workplace to rotate the "Chair" of any National Group. We normally have the chair, and therefore its responsibilities rotatated every 2 years.

    Who posts in the Forums, I'm not really a fan of any to be honest, Amits done a good job, Frank needs to be more engaged online but has done some good stuff, uk not sure I'm a fan of this anymore, Pats a legend but is he engaged with everyone, im not so sure he's the right but although he'll be elected because of who he is.

    had a look at the statements, I'm sure FD and Amit have worked hard but don't think they have been fulfilling directors or supporter's representative roles, sounds more like they are volunteers performing some fairly mundane tasks ( which I suppose they are..).

    both must have been involved somehow in the terrible decision to scrap the loyalty points scheme and for that reason alone prob wouldn't vote for either incumbent

    not voting for Gordon Munro as have written to him quite a few times through my work and never had a response and I'm not sure it's a job for a politician

    Stanton should probably be offered a role like honorary director / ambassador or something rather than standing to be an elected fans rep. Sure he could easily do the role FD does though, ie representing the club at various events

    not sure about the others, fairly uninspiring.

    might not vote this time

    Neither did anything to assist me the one time i asked , its probably a waste of time i think

    One of them is certainly keen to talk on twitter anyway , would it continue if elected though i wonder

    I can understand why she went to .net and not here TBH. It's like pulling teeth sometimes trying to get a bit of chat on here for a good long time.

    What is the point when peeps read yer havering's but don't participate and join/make the debate? Staying schtum is the antithesis of what it is aw aboot surely? I understand that things move on but somebody can make an interesting and relevant comment about the Hibs and receive no feedback at all. Somebody could be completely wrong and stupid about it (self depreciation folks) but who cares? you've said yer piece, so expect to get telt! It's like being in a pub and nobody is talking fitba! Well they are but they are just listening to that mouthy gang in the corner and maybe agreeing/ disagreeing with their viewpoints but cannae be bothered to tell their fellow Hibee why they are right/wrong/talking $#@!e or totally agree with the viewpoint. Match threads are an obvious marker of the sad state of affairs of what i'm talking aboot for the last few years. And that is just plain $#@!in wrong.

    Pie shed is gone....(sadly)....Cooshed's notice is in the post....(sadly again) but $#@! me! GHC is heading the same way I think, unless peeps start chatting (again) aboot the one and only thing, the big thing, the most important thing, that thing that brings us here in the first place, that thing that we all love, man It's the $#@!in HIBS thing innit!


    C'mon peeps. Get spraffin'. Or what is the point?



    Not a rant, just a thing that's been annoying me for a while noo...A call to arms if you will...

    Sorry Beefster, cannae agree with you about the whys and why nots of her posting on .net than here. If she wants support,she needs to engage with both of the main Hibs forums, regardless of which gets more traffic.

    She has now done this, a fair few folk have asked her questions - no reply. Yet i see she's replied on Hibs.net thread. Make of that what you will.

    I must admit, the statements are all well written but a little bland. There are too many ambitious corporate types for me. At least a couple stick out as clearly not the right people.

    I quite like the incumbents but I think that unless you can prove you've done something exceptional, it's better that there's a regular change. After two years, you're a director, not a fan IMO

    Pat Stanton - a tricky one. No doubting his credentials but is he really a fan who is going to be able to communicate in both directions?

    Have to agree that the Bounce is a bit quiet - too many valued posters have deserted for faecesboak or $#@!ter,and the bounce is poorer for it.

    But aside from that, the lassie should have:

    posted on .net and the Bounce at the same time - the two sites are seen as being the main sites for Hibs fans,

    answered the questions here too.

    If I was going to vote, then she probably lost her argument to get mine.

    Reading through them, some seem to be more focussed on what being a hibs director can do for their career rather than what they can really offer the fans.

    Stunned that someone could offer a statement that barely mentions their support for the club.

    Cannae fathom why Pat has put himself forward for this gig. While there's no doubt he's first and foremost a fan now, I understand many former players don't feel the club give them the place they deserve. It would be a shame if he's elected on the back of being a Hibs legend only to use his seat on the board as a fan rep to lobby the former players' cause. The right thing to do is for the club to recognise former players by giving one of them a non-exec role.

    As for the others, I'm no' that bothered on the basis that it's not something I'm interested in doing at this point. Frank and Amit seem to have done a great job. I hope there's a rule that forbids fan reps standing more than twice. Share the love and all that.
