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.

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?

$650 Mill….

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.

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
