Looks like Gillon's now knows when it's time for him to step down gracefully

Possibly the best administrator in football.
Deserves a statue ... and a grandstand named in his honour.
Gale is an absolute legend of RFC.

I think it was the 2016 AGM, a nuffie got up & asked how much we were paying Brendon & why wasn't it made public.

Fast forward to 2017 AGM, another guy got up, referenced the previous years question & said, just pay him whatever he bloody wants :)

Best news of 2021!

Hated the idea of him becoming a hack leader following on from Vlad and Gill the Dill. Especially when there is so much more to achieve at Tigerland both on and off field.

We have the best leadership team of any club and there is no reason yet to change it.

l think it will be Benny's last term though. Once he oversees the completion of the Punt Road Oval redevelopment I think he will say to himself my work here is done!

Wouldn't that be ironic. ..... Brendon running the new club and potentially, the inaugural Gold Coast CEO Travis Auld heading up the AFL. ..!
On second thoughts, Auld will probably install his brother in the gig. .... who I believe has already had one crack at *smile* up Tassie football and is now at the AFL running errands for McLachlan.
Zero conflicts mind you!

Spot on, Zirtec!

Also our board rules need changing.

Why is Peggy leaving?
Because of a club rule or law?
Sorry, this is wrong.

If you have the best person in the job they should stay and not leave because of some regeneration attempt.
If it ain't broke...

I understand the downside of this like in politics eg the Russian dude, Vlad.
And just recently the China bloke.
Power hungry, etc. etc.

This does not apply to our wonderful Peggy.
Moving her on because she has reached the end of a specified term is just wrong.

This is great news, but we now need for Peggy to stay on.
We need stability and those two give it in spades.

Think we would need a change in the constitution for Peggy to stay on. Pretty sure she's squeezed her tenure as much as possible under the current constitution

What a shame. She has been so great for us.
Maybe the constitution needs to be amended.

If I recall correctly the rule was put in place by Peggy? I trust her judgment.

Peggy and Benny will have a sound succession plan as to who might replace her as Pres I reckon. Good leaders do that.
