    I have no problem with them taking responsibility. I have an issue with people believing that Hawthorn do no wrong, and ignore the fact they have made a mistake as long as they fix it quickly.

    Not to mention that it appears there may not be anyone else capable on their board to fill the role of President, even on a temporary basis.

    I'm not sure why to be honest. It's bad they erred. It's good they fixed it (assuming it is fixed which only time will tell). What more can they do? Make mistakes and not fix them? All organisations will make mistakes in appointments - it isn't an exact science. If they keep doing it or cant see or admit their errors they have to examine the people and processes behind the appointments.

    They could have hired Mark Evans.

    Had enough of Hawthorn's success - time for them to enter a new dark age for 40-50 years. Get the smug looks off the faces of their smug supporters - it was excruiating driving past pubs, wine bars in Hawthorn after they'd won a flag. Going in would have been completely intolerable.

    Incorrect. He has stated just now that he will be staying on for a full term.

    Kennett also appointed Garvey to the board originally. Not to mention Garvey was an Essendon supporter. And they have lost two other board members who were Hawks through and through.

    But it's all hunky dory.

    - 3 CEOs in three years.
    - 3 Presidents in three years.

    Here. Where are you?
    Yes he's rumoured to be the source of leaks including the drug related one just before the first game in 2016.
    As for motives, I have no idea why.

    Don Scott on trade radio ripping Kennett and Hawks to shreds for their handling of it.

    It looks more likely we'll get Lethlean. Hawks with Kennett. Lethlean has ruled himself out of the running for the WB. Carlton is rumoured to be smoky even though they have a CEO. Not sure what I think of Lethlean. It'd be an appointment which lacks imagination but he has the credentials. I'm not sure i'd consider it groundbreaking though.

    Possibly. I suspect AFL money is hard to compete with but in any case I think it is clear they made a poor appointment. It happens. How often and what you do about it are important. As I said, time will tell for Hawthorn now. Having been well run may buy them som e leeway but it doesn't make them currently impenetrable.

    Kennett is (acting?) president. Lethleen would be a CEO - 2 different roles.

    I don't think it is incorrect unless I am missing something. He can state what he wants but they have a constitution. Without having intimate knowledge of theirs it is usually the case that a president has to be an elected board member. He isn't on the board as far as I know. That being the case, the members have to vote. He could possibly fill a casual vacancy in classic Collingwood 21st century mode but a board member would have to vacate. I thought the president was remaining as a board member - at least the article I read said he was to remain as a director.
    Who is actually saying that?

    3 Premierships in three years.

    Hawthorn sack a CEO just 5 months after the realise it wasn't the right call.

    Meanwhile after 4 years of non finals appearances..........

    Chalk and cheese.

    On the back of work done by others BEFORE the current administration.

    A different board member has resigned to facilitate Kennett joining.

    I can only tell you what he said. He said he will stay for a term.

    If not Lethlean, let's look at Tim Silvers. Stepped into an interim role at the Hawks before the recently sacked CEO. Has been at Hawthorn a long time and could bring something worthwhile across.

    Isn't he the one that stepped down citing insufficient commercial experience, or do I have him confused with someone else?

    I'm not sure. Could be. They kept him on in another role, perhaps to help develop him further in the area. Would be interesting to see what he could bring to the club though.

    But they never ever make mistakes.
    Oh no.
    What's going on there.

    Plus the inglorious Lewis exit.

    Ty Vickery :)
    Maybe he can collect debts that the board stuffed up with

    No not ground breaking but IMO certainly a step up from Pert so long he keeps his nose out of the FD that'll be an already improvement

    Ok, in that case he would be filing a casual vacancy which runs for the original board member's term and then he has to face election. It's academic I guess because he will be elected if he stands.
