ASADA chief executive Ben McDevitt will not be taking up another term.

Use this thread to show your appreciation for one of Australia's finest public servants: brave, diligent, willing to fight the good fight all the way despite huge amounts of pressure.

God Speed Mr McDevitt, you leave the great game of Australian Football in a better state than when you arrived.

as expected, old mate Bruce is taking some credit

ASADA’s response to my FOI request confirmed that McDevitt misled Parliament on 3 March 2016 when he corruptly inserted words into a text sent by Stephen Dank to Dean Robinson on 23 August 2011. This was humiliating for McDevitt and he should have resigned then.

In the second half of 2016, I lodged complaints with the Australian Information Commissioner against ASADA for not complying with my reasonable FOI requests. On 9 September 2016, ASADA launched a vicious, vexatious, vile 73-paragraph counter-claim against me and requested that I be declared a vexatious applicant.

On Monday 6 February 2017, the Information Commissioner informed me that he had dismissed ASADA’s case against me.

Having been humiliated twice in recent weeks, once by his own organisation, and once by the Information Commissioner, McDevitt belatedly did the right thing and resigned.

Fantastic work Bruce getting someone to resign at the end of their contract, nice forcing him out so quickly that he only gave 4 months notice, how can a replacement be found so soon?!

Bruce I suspect you must have also had a hand in him leaving his previous two positions at the end of his 1st contract based on your current efforts.

Well done Bruce!

A great innings, even if a former (albeit very brief) Test player doesn't agree!

Even knew when to announce his retirement from the game!

Well played, Sir!

McDevitt declared at the beginning of his ASADA tenure that he believed CEO's stayed in their positions for too long. He has been true to his word.
