BIG JIM

Search for a new CEO!

Recommended Posts

He did work in admin at the Yankees! He has a background in sport!

assistant to the travelling secretary, actually. (ha ha)

did you know the secretary to the assistant to the travelling secretary earns more money that the assistant to the travelling secretary himself?

For the life of me I still cant see why Scwhab was sacked. Neeld is the dud. His pre game speech was pitiful and the allowance of him to spew that rubbish on live tv was a disgrace.

From what I've heard he got extremely lucky with being the head during a period which had an exceptional coach and player group - in short, any CEO would've been successful during that period. The sun and the moon essentially collided on his watch.

Dumb luck really.

Absolutely hopeless people manager with appalling judgement. Got found out badly in his second stint. All was exposed.

Edit - iPad typos.

The next CEO will definitely be a success because they will be the AFL's chosen person and the AFL will make sure the AFL is seen to have gotten it right.

Will take your word for it RB, in saying that you got to have some smarts it don't just fall into out lap.

Ps good god wasn't that the apex of rugby? Lomu was flying, the Wallabies with larkham, Els, Gregan, The 100kg plus wingers, the Fijian flyers in Super 12's, the Lions here, the World Cup here... It was brilliant and we are a long way from it now.

No way let Gary Lyon choose the CEO. He chose the coach and look where we are.

Jim Stynes want Schwab when Bailey was sacked and Gary tallked him out of it.

Brian Cook would be a good choice as CEO. He played for Melbourne Under 19's.

Presently he is overseas some should catch up with him and have a chat with him.

He may be up for a challenge

The winner would truly be the right man or woman!

so you have seen one grab of a speech to players in Neelds time at Melbourne and decided he is a dud.

have you ever met the guy or spoken to any players to verify your assumption?

Neeld is the dud. His pre game speech was pitiful ...

a) that's a matter of opinion

b) it wasn't the pre-game speech, it was the pre-warm up speech, done nearly 2 hours before the game.

Ben Buckley, what is he doing now?

John O'Niell? Probably to small fry for them but you can only aks.

John O'Neill is Chairman of Echo Entertainment, owners of The Star casino in Sydney. I think he'd be too busy fighting off James Packer at the moment.

This guy worries me.

I reckon he was sacked by the AFL for naively firing up the tanking debate while AD was away.

He failed to see the ramifications of following up McLean's comments. Government gambling authorities still haven't announced the result of their match fixing probes. At least 8 Clubs are involved, and many millions of dollars earned by AFL Clubs from Poker machines are in jeopardy.

I want a CEO with a better understanding of how sport works than a guy who makes errors like that. (especially since so far, we're the only victims of his ineptitude).

Not the right choice for the club. background in football operation matters so likely to want to be involved in the footy department which is not what we want.

Also limited experience in the business side of football, we need someone who has strong business experience in marketing and sponsorships.

I cant see him fitting the bill.

The last 2 weeks have been the worst in my 31 years as a MFC member.

The next CEO of the MFC we MUST get right.

The future of the club we love is very much at stake and we MUST NOT get this WRONG.

Adrian Anderson would be perfect IMO.

Who do you think it will/should be?

LETS GET THIS RIGHT DEES.

WHY?????

Can't see supporters copping Anderson. He's the one who went for us and nobody else.

Not a lot of love for my left field suggestion of Tim Holding, understandable though, especially if you vote Liberal. I lived in his electorat and he's been a really good operator there. And no one's even commented on Tony Dodemaide who I reckon would be a good candidate.

All in all though I reckon Eugen Arocca seems to make the most sense.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
