MELBOURNE has signed chief executive Peter Jackson to a new deal that will see him remain at the club until at least the end of the 2017 season. ... Jackson inked the new deal at a meeting with Demons president Glen Bartlett this morning.

Great news ...

Professionalism, consistency and stability in administration of a football club won't guarantee on field success but you can't have success without it.

Inch by inch we are looking more and more like a proper footy club

His signature was all the more vital given Roos is stepping down as coach at the end of this coming year, as highlighted by Bartlett, "This is a good day for the club. We got on the front foot. With 'Roosy' doing the (coaching) handover next year I just thought it was important to have that stability".

Yew!!!! If we can have some on field success would love to see what kind of profit h the club could generate with PJ in charge.

Great news again from the club.

Also a good reminder for the coming season or 2.

It's especially good for our stability, considering the ^$%^ that was being published earlier in the year about Bartlett and Jackson being at odds over contract terms, and Bartlett making a play for Brian Cook. Thank Christ it's all been resolved.

Great signature for the MFC. PJ has been critical in turning the fortunes of our great Club around. Like all of us, he deserves to share in the spoils of our future success, and it's great to hear him say as much (in his typical under-stated way of course).

Bloody brilliant

He is the most important person at our club and the best recruitment we've had in years.

What he has done for our club is beyond words of gratitude.

I like where PJ's heart is at and the magnitude of work he has accomplished with his executive team. No easy task mind you.

14 seasons at the Bombers as CEO and managing director, head of AFL Victoria for four seasons and now MFC for two and a bit - will be four minimum.

He sticks to his task and wants to see it through. David Chippindall is also an important component of the financial side too (COO); it's great news and indeed an exciting time ahead I feel.

Good news and if we can get him to sign eventually until 2019 then that would be great. I think in the next few years, PJ should take on a protege to eventually replace him as CEO. He won't be here forever and it would be good for us to have a ready made replacement for when he does leave (I'm sure the job has taken 10 years off his life already).

That is a discussion for later on however and will bask in this re-signing for the moment.
