Puts the tigers in a very bad position if she is ever needed to be moved on or if the relationship breaks down. Poor management in my view.

Yes love is love, but surely you have to keep private and business separate...

His leave was finalized pretty quickly after the Grand Final.

Anyway, Hardwick did nothing wrong. His marriage failed and he's found someone else. They're all adults.

He had planned the time off for months. Completely seperate from anything else.

So a good mate of mine ,Dean Solomon who is a very talented assistant Coach gets the boot from GC, supposedly due to the AFL Club cuts in all departments,and 2 months later the Sun's recruit a sacked coach who couldn't finish his first full season in charge.
Makes sense ?

Similar to Lethlean. There can always be issues when someone who is in a position hooks up with a young staffer. Questions will always be asked - whether it is fair or not.

How dare they? Even if the new relationship caused the other one to fail, it's private. Just like Lethlean's private issues.
i tend to agree with this. unless he was misuing company $$$ or doing something dodgy to facilitate the relationship i don't see why it should warrant any action.

obviously, if he was harassing the lady in question it would be a different matter.

plenty of people meet their future partners in the work place.

Wouldn't be shocked if the AFL have Shaw receiving some of those Gold Coast Ambassador payments outside of their soft cap.

Money.

Depends on contractual obligations and if any toes were stepped on departmental wise if there was any "wrongdoing" involved, but part of being a media personality even if it is part of the AFL is that sometimes, the media will comment on things in relation to you. Can't just take the good bits from the job, sometimes you make sh*t decisions and then see you naked in public.

Pretty poorly handled how GC got rid of their assistants at the end of the season

Solomon would be a good get for us
