Sounds like an oxygen thief. If this was a bank he would have been speared ages ago
This is what I don't get. You don't actually don't know what he does, yet are prepared to label him an oxygen thief. It seems to me some people are happy to throw a dagger in preference to giving someone the benefit of the doubt.
It takes all kinds I guess.
Staying true to his namesake I guess.

Do you know what he does?
No I don't - am I'm not the one calling him an oxygen thief!
So, who else thinks he’s an oxygen thief?

Why do you and others think this?

He keeps a low profile for sure. I have no idea what his day to day role looks like and I also have no idea whether he is effective or ineffective.

He once stole an oxygen tank from Christopher Skase.

Thanks for the clarification. I understand his position. As others have said though how do we really know if he is doing a good job or if its all Ivan Cleary.

Im 100% behind employing someone in that capacity for the record.
Its an opinion!

Clearly we don't. However, without information to the contrary, I would like to think and I assume, that the job is being done well. My original comment was based on some people seemingly having a default position that is negative. In this instance,"Sounds like an oxygen thief", is a negative default position without the individual making that comment having a clue as to whether the job is being done well or not. Anyway .... just an observation, that's all. I find it strange.

Same, i can only assume he is doing a fantastic job. Not hard given the guy he replaced but he does seem to be kicking some goals. Hard to know to what extent however.

A guy like Egan is very important for issues such as we find ourselves in right now. A mediator to make sure that recruitment doesn't go down the gurgler if the coach legs it, gets sacked, or wants to jeopardise the long term future of the club for short term success (Hasler and backloading.)
