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

    http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-league/...fter-three-years-in-role-20170207-gu7upj.html

    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.

    Well after his introduction into the steaming pile of poo that was the Essendon saga, everything else would seem a bit tame.

    No doubt his performance has been noted by other organisations and he has been head hunted for another dirty task which he will methodically fulfill.
    Was great asset to sport in Australia.

    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!

    If he does I feel sorry for anyone who has to read Bruce's application addressing the selection criteria.

    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.
