Find it more sad that a church will hound people for the way they were born, but each to their own I guess...

 

The man has a right to his beliefs even as abhorrent they are to many of us.

It comes back to the lack of due diligence for a cultural fit to today's AFL and general Australian environment.  Someone messed up.

Sure, but making those beliefs as public as he has will impact his suitability to lead organisations that put such a high premium on inclusiveness.

Agree that there was a lack of due diligence there, although - wasn't he one of the people overseeing the review? Seems a bit like he might have put himself forward.

hope there are no practising catholics or muslims on the board or the executive

could be a blood bath

Bit of a different context being a Catholic, Muslim, whatever, in your personal life to being the chair of a church that says history will judge abortions like concentration camps.

Well I hope he's more imaginative next year than he was this year..

Imaginative? I'd think 'listened to...' by Goodwin.

In a way I think that is sad that someone could be hounded out of a job for their beliefs and the church they belong to.

Someone at Ess ad the AFL didn't do enough due diligence on the cultural fit.  Just shows some clubs just don't get the importance of being an inclusive club, not just in word but also in deed.

I wish the world had more people with your decency and compassion Luci.

This seemingly answers the question of if his personal beliefs would have influenced his decisions as Essendon CEO:

 

Can't have been that thorough a reference check.  Should have checked Thorburn's preference 'club vs church' before giving him the job.

Now looks like deflecting the blame.

Ess are still a mess.

No, enema.

Risky at Essendon, probably flush out their best. Mind you it is a s4it club.

Good article on the whole disaster that is Essendon and Thorburn.

As a long term NAB Customer i would love to meet this low life. Who has taken absolutely no responsibility for stealing money, that’s what it is

Why wasn’t he charged and put in Jail?

Corporate execs don’t go to jail. They get new equally highly paid jobs at a new corporate entity. Morals and ethics are words only when it comes to chasing the dollar for people like him. The fact he belongs to a right wing church is of no surprise.

I actually think you can park religious beliefs and work with all types, as much as I loathe the sentiments his church expresses, he is not a numpty his role with NAB suggests that.  He was also pretty comfortable with the hypocrisy of being a banker and a Christian - Matthew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate one and love the other...you cannot serve God and money".

Oh I know, even under oath he still openly lied as if nothing had happened 

He should be cleaning toilets at Hungry Jacks, psychopathic behavior is encouraged in the Corporate World. They do not care about anything except $$$$

For someone who considers himself as an astute media performer, Barham is making a complete hash of it.

The coach sacking, insisting on an experienced coach, Sheedy's obsession with Hird and now a CEO that lasts one day.

The whole board has to go.

Not sure what you are getting at? It is clear that not all 'Churches' serve God. My point was A) he is obviously morally flexible having been a CEO of a Big four bank, B) On so many levels being a banker (as demonstrated by numerous scandals, fees for no service, money laundering, wage theft, etc) is inimical to being a 'Good' Christian. Thus he was perfectly suited to Essendon (was always going to be a lightening rod though).  

And by the way not describing myself as a good anything, especially Christian, but I aspire to do better. I also 100% respect belief and the right to have beliefs, but draw the line big time at pushing any agenda that limits someone/anyone's' right to a fair go.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
