Agree that this should be the overriding, laser like focus of everyone.

That said, the reality is that the CEO is running a $40m business with many components, he employs people in the football department who have that as their sole remit.
All resources must be channeled toward that end.

Everything else outside of this is an irrelevant indulgence.

You can only WIN games of football IF your club exists. You can ONLY exist as a club IF you are financially viable.
Agree with this.

You can't even run a tin shed cricket team sustainably without a committee, secretary, treasury, fund-raising functions in place. Annoying but that's reality.

The 1990s were a pretty good sneak preview of a club that was damn good at winning games of football but appalling bad at almost every other aspect of managing a club.

To the point we almost heard our last rites 7 years after 8 straight top 4 finishes, 3 grand finals, 2 premierships and having one of the biggest star players in history.

If winning games of football was the only criteria for a CEO we would've tied Greg Miller to a lifetime contract.

You take moron to a whole new level.

No Tef, when it comes to running a football club you have proven time and time again that you have no idea. I know you find it very hard to listen to others but when it comes to how our football club is run no one gives a sh*t what you think.

Perfectly predictable. Shall I post a picture of a box of tissues for you? That would be funny, wouldn't it? Because you know, you cry and whine like a little girl when it comes to do with anything the admin of my football club does. Maybe I should post that whining girl gif you like. You'd get a kick out of that, yeah? You whine like a little girl so I'll post a gif of one. Brilliant humor, it's sure to make you laugh.

You're a pathetic troll...time to mention Dr Hood.

The CEO's job is to institute policy to WIN games of football.

In fact, that's their ONLY task.

The NMFC members have been spun irrelevant bullshit for far too long.
Snake - do you regard the time that an AFL CEO spends, cultivating new sponsors and keeping existing sponsors happy, a wasteful indulgence or a necessity required to keep that club afloat?

That's the coach, football department and team's job.

But your opinion is largely irrelevant; you've had a hissy fit about AFLW and won't buy a membership. So fu** off.
