Boz just posted Gerard Neesham as Snr Coach for the Crows!!!!!

Why have I mentioned it here? Looked into his background and thought if Boz wasn’t buzzed (which he possibly is), maybe the name is for this role?

Before looking for the who? can someone explain the what? What is this role, how does one measure the success of this role? More importantly if the person who takes on this role realises change is needed, how is that acted upon? Although I fully understand the reasoning, I am unsure about the authority and execution.

I get the feeling that although we've already technically got this role that it was more a whole of organisation thing.

Whereas this appointment will be a football department thing, working closely with the coach.

Maxwell and Buckley seemed quite close in that Collingwood documentary, eg planning a preseason camp for first year players and senior players for them to bond.

Extension of the coaching staff rather than part of the office staff.

yeah that fully makes sense. I have always found it hard to quantify culture and the means to both address and change culture. In a corporate world it is often a stance that needs to be a movement from the very top down. However your point is valid. There are two parts to a footy club and a fairly decisive line that separates these parts. The corporate side and the footy side. I wonder if our external review covered both sides? I mean the corporate side looks healthy. Our footy department definitely looked pretty bad.

This role is needed because it is obvious The Review found key hires have been done through nepotism. Too obviously hired Burtob over a pint of beer at the Alma, and after he stuffed up our players jammies instead of being fired got a promotion, where he stuffed up in hiring CM and more importantly allowing them to take our players on that camp.

It is a role to ensure we have a.proper recruitment process of key personnel and that personnel continue to be the right people at the club.


It is not so much about player leadership and making sure they players all.get on and have a good.player culture.

It is about making sure the right people are in the right jobs.

Obvious?

I thought the report was very positive about Fagan and the board?

And you're saying it's obvious that there was a deeply corrupt process?

Sure you're not projecting what YOU think is obvious?

The biggest club apologist at it again.

The first obvious thing is that history cant be changed no matter how many times you come on here posting a defense of everything AFC., including processes, trades, who we hire and who we currently have filling positions at the AFC.

The next obvious thing is that you have zero ability to read whats been happening at the AFC and come to a reasonable conclusion of what stinks at the AFC.

No doubt, however, this role just sounds like a specialist HR person, or someone heading up a HR department.
It would be pointless if it was the case. Surely the new role is footy dept only, not entity wide. The wanky title that looks after our public service culture in Admin would remain and there’s a new job ensuring that the footy dept doesn’t suffer the same fate.

Look, if you're not willing to actually discuss any of the contradictions I point out, then piss off.

The echo chamber of people in here who repeat their biases back to each other constantly is pathetic.

It doesn't matter what actually occurs, people here have a view that comes from being a mile away from knowing what has actually occurred.

Should Chapman have resigned? Yes, following the Tippett scandal, for a lack of rigor around his governance. Is he a horrendous person and a liar? No, he's much more likely someone who tried his best to do what he thought was right for the club, and supported the staff that worked for him. He raised a lot of money for us - but he should have fallen on his sword if he wanted a truly decent culture.

Blaming Chapman for the Tippert saga is wrong, there a a few other reason to put hate on him but not that one.
However the Tippert saga is why we are in this position today,
Pre Tippert the Crows board Trusted the CEO and Trigg had more power than most. Affter Tippert the Board remove some of the Power from the CEO, and put into action a more direct link to Football department ie a way to meddle into the day to day running of the football deptpartment.
A lot of back seat changes happen after the Tippert saga some good some bad,
One of these changes cause the issue were the CEO was not fully incontrol of the Football department, and a Part time Board member had more control. Another was merging the Fitness staff and Medical Staff under the one department head which caused the club to look for a new department head. They all sounded great at the time, But today we have a differant story.

As Mention before wictch hunts do not work and do not fix problems, they have a habit of making more. and the Crows embarked on a big witch hunt after the tippert saga,

Well written and I agree. Perhaps another fault was a poor internal review system that actually rubber stamped poor performance. Chapman and the board have something to be accountable for there.
One thing I can not get my head around at the time of the Tippet saga is why we buckled so quickly and self punished ourselves when in fact we never broke the cap limit. Clubs like Essendon and Collingwood would have fought hammer and nail for a better result. That was Chapmans fault.

Need to remember at the time the SANFL owned the Crows, there was a lot happening around that time ie relocation to Adelaide, buying our own license back from the SANFL, equaly its important to note the club needed assistance from the AFL in footing the bill, was that part of the reason we could not make a stand.
Still there should have been more fight regarless,
