By my reckoning we haven't won a game since he was announced as the new CEO.

Looks like he's lost the players before he's even started.

THIS .. We have lost all 3 games since he was made CEO. 

I have heard that internal people have serious issues with Gary Pert. 

Apparently Peter Jackson had no say in who was going to be our next CEO combined with Josh Mahoney being completely overlooked has seriously ruffled the feathers.  

I have a really uneasy feeling about how this might start to open up old wounds. 

I really hope I'm wrong and this isn't true – but time will tell.

announced 14th June, but the club knew about it prior to the Collingwood game. 

I guess its just coincidence too that since Essendon sacked Mark Neeld their form has completely done a backflip ? ..

Anyway.. like i said.. time will tell.

You can't be serious surely, blaming a bloke that will take over in 4 months as ceo. The players wouldn't give a s**t who the ceo was.

The jungle drums are beating about this...

I have some limited experience with Collingwood when Pert was there and its fair to say the view is he is an ordinary bloke and an even more ordinary administrator. I hope I am wrong but I don't feel good about this appointment.

Thanks for the insight Die Hard Demon. I've unfortunately heard the same things and has created a huge sense of tension and uneasiness internally. I don't care what anyone says, but the fish rots from the head. This has caused an indirect impact on the playing group whether we like it or not. Standby for further news about this which will come out in the media sooner or later.

Are the MFC factions at it again?  Those coteries who are famous for disunity!  If anyone has solid info about Perts appointment causing internal problems, put up or shut up.  The members are restless enough already.

Are there issues with Pert or the way it was handled? What could Pert do to destroy the club? Am just interested that's all as obviously I don't know him personally

I with you Soidee if Coteries anyone try to cause Friction the should all take a hike and take your money with them, we don’t need you, the club is trying to become a successful club overall and any Disunity from groups egos can get lost we don’t need you or your $$. 

Pert is proven to get brilliant commercial results which we desperately need. For a CEO to be in the one role for 11 years normally that brings overall success across the board. Time will tell though.

I'm not at all sure he did mishandle the coaching situation at EFC...subsequent events would say they should have kept with Knights.

Matty Knights wasn't necessarily a bad coach but he was always going to struggle to live up to expectation in the shadow of Sheedy. He just wasn't 'Essendon enough' for their supporters (similar to how we carried on pre PJ about people bleeding red and blue) not experienced enough to take the scrutiny on board that was to come his way.

I think PJ also put his foot in it by talking about only getting people from 'backgrounds of success' but then getting someone with the background I mentioned.

The best coach I reckon for them at the time would have been Neale Daniher. He knew the place, knew how to coach and especially knew how to weather criticism.

Perhaps you might want to seek out 'Reading with Phonics' before posting again.

I think a few people are being spooked by Pert, because PJ has been so good and a few people are hearing gossip about some problems at Collingwood, which if true you would hope he has learned from. He was there for 11 years and oversaw their transformation, along with Eddie,  to a powerhouse club.

Hopefully he does a great job for us. If he is no good he can be moved on.

I just read this post as "take down the tranny that is the AFL!" Very disturbing imagery.
