I initially thought that too, however the statement reads that Balmey will still be heavily involved in the football side of things.smart move, we can give everyone pay rises by changing Balmes title and removing him from the footy soft cap.
It could be all of that. As well as prolonging Balmey's career, it also shows respect and the esteem he's held in imo.Be interested to know what others think.
Maybe we're unloading some of Balmey's duties to prolong his 'career' at the club.
Apart from probably needing to give these guys a pay rise to ward off other clubs, I see Tim Livingston and Blair Hartley looking after the nuts and bolts and Balmey running interference with the so called expert journos and analysts!
The rest of the industry can't figure out what we do now..... just our new way of adding to their confusion..... should be fun, can't wait!
As Balmeys final act, which is hopefully a decade away, I'd like to see him drink 20 pots at an AFL gala gig, join in The Nutbush on the dancefloor, vomit all over former CEO Gil McLachlan and theatrically kick him up the arse on the spin, pick him up off the deck like a handbag and throw him into the DJ pit.I like it. Elder statesman, emeritus professor, footy dept mentor and advisor, media safe hands, sponsor charmer. He can do it all comfortably. Perfect
