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.

Last year Collingwood was a shambles:  Gubby was suspended, Eddie was under pressure on many fronts and nearly cost CFC major sponsors.  Pert fell on his sword. There are no secrets in the AFL.

Would have been tough as CEO with Eddie having his hands in everything.

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.

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 wonder if we may hear anything from PJ or Pert in the near future, probs more so PJ as pert doesn’t take over until October??

Why not both? Surely with the power of 2 we could take down the tyranny that is the AFL!

Yarra Park training and admin base. Near Jolimont station. Lock it in, er, Perty

So putting this on the front page of the Hun killed it.

Taskforce coming back very soon with recommendations. One option building over the AAMI carpark on Gosch's side. 

Either way, likely to have a location for our future base soon.

Who put it on the front page before it needed to be/it was a done deal?

Many thanks for the 'heads-up' Chook. 

If Perty can pull this off in the current climate, he will be our best Secretary / CEO since Jimmy Cardwell.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
