So North had to make a position for him...Why?.l was under the impression that after Luff we had everyone that was needed.1999-2009 Western bulldogs
2010-2017 Gold Coast Suns
2018-2019 west coast eagles
Brisbane prior to 99.
That's how I have his resume.
Edit: pretty poor selections taking a quick look.
"The Eagles confirmed on Tuesday that Clayton had would take up a newly created football, marketing and administrative role at the club. He will be based in Melbourne."
His previous role suggests he's more a sounding board than anything. Quite happy for luff and Finnegan to make the calls and seek him out for advice/report their reasoning to him.
He reports to Brady?
Clayton is probably also the "senior mentor" the club has been talking about.So North had to make a position for him...Why?.l was under the impression that after Luff we had everyone that was needed.
Opposite of dearth.Clayton is probably also the "senior mentor" the club has been talking about.
He's certainly experienced.
I'm not suggesting that he walks on water, but it has to be a good appointment consider the
dearthsurfeit of young heads we have brought through the door.
To be fair I’d argue gws have lost more talent if you were to compose a comparable list. I think the downfall has beena struggle to build a culture on the GC and then allowing want away players to leave for cheap whereas the giants have continued to roll talent into high end draft picks. Also quality of qld junior footy doesn’t stack up so really cant be over reliant on their academy. So all in all,a lot of constraints to work within at the GCS, and it does look as though they may be on the right track now keeping a bunch of kids together and building something of a culture.Let's just take a look at the players Gold Coast lost for one reason or another that Clayton recruited.
He can bring them in but not his job to keep them there.
All of the above are still playing and I reckon if they kept those players they would have played finals by now.
Nope.Player personnel = football department.
He's the head of the football department.
Sounds like head of HR, but only over players. And if you work in a corporate environment you’ll know HR’s role isn’t to look after people, it’s to prevent the organisation getting sued by its staff as a result of their staff’s actions. (I’m not a fan of HR departments you might detect). Not sure what the role will involve but list management does appear to becoming more complicated with multiple drafts, mid season drafts, live pick trading, academies, points, free agency, not to mention trade, scouting, negotiation with other clubs, players, and agents, and player welfare and ensuring the list are happy and able to deal with any problems they may have in their personal lives. So yeah seems a lot of work involved in managing player personnel and makes sense to have another experienced head in there aside from just identifying talent
I didn’t read to the end of your post because you defining each word is not the same as understanding what the title is.1) My interpretation is based on the fact that the word "player" appears in the title.
2) The word "player", in this context, is "a person who partakes in a game or sport".
3) The "personnel" who oversee "players" in an AFL context, are also referred to as a "football department".
Therefore, you're wrong. I'm sure you'll eventually recover from this setback and get over it.
