Appointing JROD as CEO would be peak Essendon.

When Campbell was appointed I posted that he was lightweight and lacked experience. Rodski is even more so. He is what....35 years old with no experience as a CEO, with no experience outside the AFL industry and almost no experience outside of Essendon.

It would be beyond a farce.
Didn't we "poach" Rodski from channel 9? You're right, his experience seems lacking.

I remember when LPno1 was an Essendon fan and wanted to draft him because he was attractive

how do you know an Essendon player leaked it as opposed to the Players Union?
That is irrelevant - Once players go the Union without addressing it with the club first, then it's a chance to be leaked - Seeing that Xavier allegedly sent the email at 8pm on Friday, and it then appeared in the press on Sunday afternoon, this suggests there was little or no dialogue between the playing group and Xavier.

And whose fault is that?

That sort of goes both ways I think Yaco. There is no denying how poorly this has been handled. The players are within their rights to seek the union for advice. The leak is disappointing but not surprising given how ill-conceived the initial delivery of the communication was and how things work.

Well Xavier didn't really give them the option of having a conversation. The email was more "9% will be withheld for November". Sounds like a decision to me. The leak is poor, but the wording of the email is why the player(s) contacted the Union. What else is there to discuss when the CEO sends out a definitive email?

The playing group has just been told it lacks leadership as an outcome of Brasher review. Yet our clubs leadership fails them soon after.

These things have the potential to impact the culture of a group in any sort of organisation. At a minimum it's not the sort of thing you want people stewing on whilst on their break.

I don't think Rodski has done a whole lot wrong, has he? He started doing our media and communications, then moved into marketing (a pretty natural move) then the wider commercial stuff.

Doubt he's a likely CEO but think he's been alright.

and once the email was sent to the players, they needed to inform the union asap

Depends on how you view our media, communications and marketing stuff in the last few years really
