    However Hawthorn are also now in the market for a CEO after sacking their one within 5 months of appointing her.
    And the Pies haven't replaced Pert yet either have they? Plenty of competition at the moment

    Just feels a conflicting message in there given the timing of where we're at.
    I get that, but if he is a great candidate I'm sure we can put in some additional measure to mitigate. At some point Lethlean will get back into a senior position.

    Gary Kent has still not officially resigned has he? According to someone close to his family he only ever took on the role as an interim measure, and the club is continuing to wait until the right candidate for a full time role is found.

    But no formal resignation has been tabled - just the original plan still in effect.

    As an interim CEO I don't think you resign you just wait for them to appoint a new one unless you actually don't want to do it anymore.

    I agree. That's why the resignation talk was confusing me.

    Hope we find a strong candidate but it seems like Kent is doing a more than satisfactory job in the mean time.

    It's in the OP of this thread:

    Our President Peter Gordon has said in recent weeks and so have I, that I never intended to take up the CEO job for the long term. And this is true. The Board and I havenít had a set leave-by date for me to depart. We havenít needed to. We have simply maintained a dialogue about it as the events of the year have unfolded.

    In June this year, I wrote to the Board and said I would prefer a new CEO be in place by the first AFL Premiership season game of 2018.

    Damo has just reported that while we sounded out Lethlean he wasn't that keen perhaps looking for a more high profile club

    Looks like he is off to Carlton

    Good. Would have been some bullshit to ship off/condemn Stringer but get in Lethlean.

    Why we aren't getting rid of Stringer because he slept around

    To be honest I don't think these are similar examples but I get why some might see it that way.

    They both have older men in desirable positions, using that position to sleep with women in vulnerable positions. They're both morons but at least Jake isn't 41 years old.

    You can't demonise a footy boys culture and then at the same time turn around and hire an embodiment of it.

    The women involved in Leathlen's case weren't 17 either.

    Can't both be undeserible types in our new culture, rights & responsibilities, connection to our staff and women's team and in conjunction with our no dickheads policy?

    Who is demonising a footy boys culture? Stringer has not been asked to leave because he slept around with other women

    Agreed, there were other reasons at play.
    Anyway it looks like Lethlean is headed to the Blues.
