    Re: Ameet Baines new CEO

    The last time we stole someone from the Saints for an off field role worked out ok...

    I'm a big fan of what Bains has done at the Saints. I was hoping we'd sound him out to replace JMac actually.

    He seems very switched on to me. Hopefully he's got some players in his pocket to follow him next trade period.

    Great administrator with a law and finance background and will be an asset corporately and also from a footy department perspective.

    To me it's a big jump for him but I think we should be confident he will do well. Bendigo boys always do

    Although I don't follow much of what Saints do he seems very switched on whenever I've heard him. That cash in move to get a 2017 first round pick from Hawks last year when they were trying to get O'Meara was a beauty.

    I was so envious that the Saints conjured that deal out of thin air. It was a great example of creativity I've been waiting to see from our list management team.

    I'm excited by this appointment.

    At this rate the whitten oval might start its own law firm, why not since PG has been back we have had a VFL team an AFLW team and a VFLW team about to start, why stop at football,?
    I'm waiting for the netball team as well.

    Have always been impressed by Bains. He's steadily risen through the ranks at the Saints, and always sounds very insightful and switched on when interviewed.

    For a non-business man, what are the key differences between a COO and CEO role?

    Very highly rated - the AFL were keen to bring him on with them in some capacity.

    This looks great on paper.

    CEO is responsible for the overall running of the organisation whereas the COO looks after operational matters. So COO for example would not have finance as a responsability

    I'd imagine that Bevo would be very familiar with Ameet, through his father John's deep recruiting connection at the Saints.

    Sounds like a great get.
