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?

George Costanza could bring the Penski file with him.

Cale morton

The Skipper of the Costa Concordia


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.

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.

Tend to agree Alf but please be warned you're treading dangerous waters here Son. Edited by thaipantsman

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

Festivus or the rest of us!

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.

Andrian Anderson? Perfect CEO or not? We must get a proven powerful CEO with strong leadership the only other one for me would be Eugene arocca he seems to have left a fairly strong culture are north! Adrian Anderson would be my pick Demitriou may take a stronger liking to us haha

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 TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    A- Alice Springs. Happy hunting ground.     B- Backline. Finally found the non-leaking version.   C- Cairns & Covid. How a season was ruined.    D- Demonland. Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team
