I think the term DEVOLUTON is more apt."Competition Evolution Manager" .... Far out ...
Turn it up... that's not how these blokes operate. More along the lines of. ......Just had a run through the AFL administration body & you would think they had all bases covered. Must have beat a hot field if there was one. Would that position have to been advertised as he is now a paid servant of the AFL.

Gilligan : "Steve, how we going with that job announcement on Scotty?"
SHocking : "All good as I promised earlier, just wanted the right time to do the press release. Lot's of tennis and cricket news floating about so it's usually a good time to slip it out there.
Gilligan : "Nah mate, we missed the boat not doing it while the fires were really raging.... Wouldn't have rated a mention anywhere!"
SHocking : "Yeah, I did think that'd work too but when I touched base with Damo he said we'd have to leave it til the media department returned from their study tour at News Corps Bahamas communications enhancement facility"
Gilligan : "Christ, I forgot all about that, I was in the neighborhood on Bransons patch in the Virgin Islands, coulda swung by to see Rupert .. hmmm maybe next year! It really shits me ya know that the public don't give us enough credit for the efforts we go to in improving the game for them.
Anyway, Richard has promised me that even when I'm gone he'll make sure that 1A and my frequent flyer points are a given!"
SHocking : "No doubt about you boss, nose to the grindstone 24/7 365 days of the year. Been doing some extra study myself, our medics wanted to see the effects of low altitude training on pro athletes and so having played at the highest level I gave up my break and spent 6 weeks in the south of France exercising"
Gilligan : "So selfless of you Steve. Seriously, we need to set up a whole new section so we can get the proper message out to our key stakeholders about all the great things we continue to do for their game!"
SHocking :" Great idea chief, can't we hand this portfolio to Chris and he can connect with the masses in his role as the Evolution Manager? "
Gilligan : "FFS Hock, how many times do I need to tell you it's ****'n Bradley we've parachuted in..!!
Chris ain’t starting till next year!
SHocking : "****, easy to mistake, do ya reckon they'll stop wearing identical gear when they're both here?
Gilligan : "nah, we should leave it as it is, everyone in the industry knows they're a couple of fun guys. Actually that's an idea for Chris's new department. ... last time I looked down the corridor we're up to F..... Let's call him the Functionality Manager. We'll have Damo saturate the media on our newly appointed manager of Fun and bingo, there's another promise fulfilled!"
SHocking : "Visionary boss, visionary!"
