Default Resolution D - Bring Back Rockin Robin

Seeing as there are threads for most AGM resolutions, I thought I'd start one about the most important one of all!

I'm backing the proposers personally.

Quote:
RESOLUTION D

Summary: To replace the current club mascot "Wrex the Dragon" with "Rockin' Robin"

Proposer: Mary Roberts, Adrian Roberts and Louise S Roberts

“The Society resolves that the Society Board be directed to replace the current club mascot "Wrex the Dragon" with "Rockin' Robin”.

Proposer’s background information:


Rockin' Robin was dismissed of his duties as the club's mascot in 2001, since then we have faced administration to relegation from the football league. Now we the fans have owned our club for some years and are looking for promotion and have enjoyed the games when Rockin' Robin came back for the odd game e.g. Barroween which brought large crowds to see his antics we would ask the membership to vote on his return as feel it would be beneficial to the club with the entertainment he brings.

Society Board’s Background Information:


Although they understand the sentiments behind this resolution and tempting as it may seem, the Board advises members not to vote in favour of it. Everyone who witnessed his antics looks back on the heyday of Rockin Robin with affection and to the years when the team’s nickname was “the Robins”. However, 17 years have now elapsed since the Club decided to adopt “the Dragons” as its nickname and to introduce Wrex the Dragon as its mascot. A name which reflects our Welsh identity and distinguishes us from other clubs. A generation of younger fans have known nothing else and the Junior Dragons is an important and growing part of the fanbase. Thousands of schoolchildren were entertained by Wrex at the recent Wales squad training day at the Racecourse. To alter things now would involve time and expense to rebrand this part of the Club’s image. Time and expense which is better spent elsewhere.

As this resolution directs the Board to act it requires a two thirds majority of those voting.

Default Resolution D

I never realised that our descent into the non league was caused by Rockin Robin being replaced by Wrex the Dragon!!!


Strikes me that this resolution is unfair as the people it applies to, children, aren't eligible to vote on it. And if Rockin robin comes back there would be a lot of wasted effort on my part teaching my two year old to roar like a dragon.

I think this sort of thing should be left to the younger fans and junior dragons to decide on. We could all vote for it based on nostalgia though.

I've a little one that likes Wrex and a young niece that loves him. I'm inclined to agree with the trust board in not wanting to incur costs of rebranding the junior Dragons.

Let's not alienate the kids of today and lose something that they know and identify with.

Give it 17 years and someone could propose a wrex return haha.

Why does the Board have to advise members, why not just let people vote?

As for 'the Dragons' distinguishing us from other clubs, to me it is the most default welsh thing possible.

From the 2001 press release ( Latest News ) Commercial Manager Christian Smith, who has spearheaded the change ... said "While tradition and traditional values should never be totally overlooked, Wrexham Football Club is entering a period in its history when changes need to happen with progress both on and off the field of play."

How did that decade go in the end?

Also - 2013 the club moved from Wrexham FC to Wrexham AFC

http://wst.org.uk/www3/index.php/doc...-agm-pack/file page 13.

No mention of time and expense better spent elsewhere then, and Board took a 'neutral position'.

Bearing in mind that was a change on the badge as well etc etc

So Wrexham's decline is because we changed our nickname and in no way related to Pryce Griffiths rejecting Geoff Farrells consortium but instead eventually selling out to Guttterman?
