Kate Roffey Set to Become President of the MFC



Recommended Posts

It seems odd that we have had no press conf, press release nor member email to announce the appointment.

Tom Morris who leaked the story of Bartlett standing down seems to have gone to ground.  And the Pert email he thought had been sent on Saturday night doesn't seem to have existed or he was misinformed.

Wouldn't mind seeing something official from mfc on Kate's appointment. 

the pert email was to core business units, i.e. goodwin, who mentioned it in his press conference

Jesus Christ the reaction to that article from all the male posters is the epitome of why we need a bigger push for equality. 

Honestly, some of you blokes don’t get it. What questions do you think the first female pres of the oldest club is going to get? What answers to those questions should she give? Of course she gives a

I noticed during the Team song that Glen was there, wearing his Scarf, i do hope there is no bad blood. We don’t need it.  We need everyone together to get the elusive 13th

I know her from ABC TV Breakfast appearances, don’t always agree with her politics but she is very competent. 

Swings left? Let’s hope she doesn’t bring that garbage into the club

Equality means equal for both parties.  It is better in some places in the world, but i think you are so far off the mark here it just screams ignorance and male entitlement.   i might need a reality check and live in fantasy land as you put it, but i would say you need to delve a bit deeper and look within yourself.

You still did not answer why you reacted in such a way?

Please explain !

Do you want equality of opportunity or equality of outcome ? 

They are very different things.

Is she hugging Mark "Choco" Williams there? Great to see!

Gotta love Mark "Choco" Williams! Not sure if people read the article in the Herald Sun on Sunday about Demons wingman Ed Langdon singing the praises of Mark "Choco" Williams and how he has helped Ed Langdon to be more calm with his kicking and improve his kicking skills. Brilliant stuff!

Seems as qualified as any president we’ve had in the past and it’s a great progressive move for us to have our first female president. 

The coterie club might need to be a little sharper on the locations of future functions though!

All the best to Bartlett, probably the most stable years off the field we’ve had since I’ve been following the Dees.

Mark Williams has been the missing ingredient, the assistant that we truly needed. I just hope he sticks around for a good number of years. 
The MFC needs stability and continuity 

Players will come to us and our core will play out entire careers.

Weren't people saying Bartlett was looking really sick at the AGM?

Don't know about sick but he looked over weight and a little worn out. So that fits comment.

Whatever the reasons, it appears that the changeover to Roffey has been handled well without much fuss. No mud slinging or rumours. 

Well done MFC and another indication that we are a professional outfit with a smooth operation. .

Are you talking about women in China, Middle East and India?    Because they have it bad.  Real bad.

As for Australia and the west you are living in fantasy land if you think there's gender inequality here. 

 

This is a ****house post. Congratulations.

This appointment has been made on merit. Anyone suggesting otherwise has obviously not bothered to do any research. Her accomplishments with respect to delivery of major projects are truly impressive and we are in the very fortunate position that she has been leveraging those connections to get our home base approved. I believe this appointment can only help that process.

This is not a token appointment to tick a gender equality box. She is the best person for the job. End of story.

Best of luck Kate.

Dear Kate,

Congratulations,

Some notes for your agenda ? from the outer:

1. Hold open elections of directors and publish subsequent results

2. Treat and inform members with respect; members whose passion is why you are there.

3. Build a Board better than the rest in the AFL, befitting the men's and women's teams exciting performances on the field.

    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
