Reading his CV one thing I find acceptable is that he is a career sports administration person

Here to do a job and donít imagine a history of limited AFL time will be an issue

In fact may be his big asset

I'm not sure if you mean decisions made by the CEO, or decisions in the hiring process, or both...

And now Lethlean has missed out on the Essendon football manager position, too. If Eddie did try to grab him at the start, that's looking worse and worse with each new development.

Some amusing lines...

...
As a result both McLachlan and Lethlean raised eyebrows across the industry. McLachlan, because club bosses found it bemusing and not a little insulting that the AFL could declare Lethlean unfit to serve at head office the AFL and yet ideal to run a club.
...

So Lethlean presented for the top job at Carlton to a sub-committee ...
Reportedly Lethlean's first presentation was mediocre. Perhaps because he had already been told the job was his he did not put enough work into the interview.
...

And after being rejected by Carlton, Lethlean was unlikely to be considered by Collingwood even if he had remained in the running.

...

In fairness, it's not clear exactly what Eddie said to Lethlean when they met. And Lethlean's rejections cannot be said to be entirely independent. When you're publicly rejected by one hiring committee, it can't have zero effect on the committees that meet afterwards.

He must be lying low there while waiting for his new job at SEN. By Maccas, I assume you mean McGuire's. What's the food like there?

He was hired after accounting firm Ernst & Young conducted a review of the club's football department.

Lethlean resigned from his AFL position in July... He was overlooked for CEO roles at Collingwood, Carlton and Hawthorn earlier this year, plus a role as head of football at Essendon.

The former AFL No.2 will start with the Saints in January.

Finnis announced Lethlean's appointment on Friday morning, saying the former AFL footy boss had been the standout candidate after an extensive search conducted by the club and external consultants Ernst and Young.

"What's convinced us is he's taken full accountability for that. Simon's taken responsibility, he's spent the last five months rebuilding trust with those who are most important to him, and they don't work in footy, and he's convinced us of that attitude around accountability," Finnis said.

Former football manager Jamie Cox has been demoted and while his exact role has not been defined yet, he will continue to be involved with the football department.

Went for all the CEO gigs but had to settle for a footy manager gig. Interesting.

Not all the CEO gigs: he thought the Bulldogs job was not good enough for someone of his status and so didn't make encouraging noises when they asked his intentions.

What Mark's been up to...

Quote:
Collingwood's new CEO Mark Anderson recently requested and heard a presentation on eSports by a representative from Australian team Avant Gaming. That presentation was made by members of Bastion Live, the new owners of Avant Gaming who are considered one of Australia's top three teams.

Meanwhile at Geelong, CEO Brian Cook recently told reporters he had instructed his staff to explore eSports.

"[I] have got my data staff to present a recommendation to us on that," Cook said.

"That will be with us in the next couple of weeks, whether we go down that path."

Lethlean was strongly-linked to Carlton's vacant CEO position in October but he refused to address speculation he had been offered the job by president Mark LoGiudice before Cain Liddle was appointed.

"I understand there's been a public discussion on that topic, but I'm general manager of football at St Kilda Football Club now and I'm not going to discuss management roles and processes at other clubs," he said.

Does this mean Mark has actually officially started now?
He was definitely in Qld. at the conclusion of the Aus. swimming trials on the weekend.
