Honestly the last piece of the puzzle is on field results.
The most important part.
You’ll get no argument from me there Gal. Gotta have everything in the background pulling the right too though. Jack Gibson said that winning starts in the front office.
Absolutely agree. I’m just not sure we have. Getting a suitable training facility shouldn’t be marked as a great achievment. That’s a basic necessity.
True, but the five or six guys before Pascoe couldn’t get it over the line. They couldn’t get the club solvent. They couldn’t attract sponsorship the to level we do now.
It’s all falling into place slowly. If the one field performances reflected what we were doing off the field I am not sure we’d be having these discussions about Pascoe’s ability as a CEO.
Because of our never ending cap mess. When he turned up he said we’d be clear of the mess in 2017. Now it looks like 2022.
Well we were, and then we were thrown back in again.
I know, under his watch.
I guess the difference in opinion is what someone thinks the CEO’sis responsibilty is I think a good one is in control and responsible for every part of the organisation. If hes just the numbers guy, then he doing a good job.
You’re right in that he’s in charge of the whole organisation. Yeah you own what your employees do, but don’t you think that Ivan has absolutely no responsibility in his actions? Conversely you can apply the logic you’ve stated as if you judge him on football operations, he’s been ordinary as a CEO, hence why I’ve said he’s neither been stellar nor hopeless as a CEO. Those saying he’s without fault and those saying he’s garbage refuse to look at his efforts as a whole. There’s things he could have done better and there’s things he’s done that others couldn’t.
At the end of the day the club exists to win footy games. Without the financials reading the right way, we don’t even have a footy team to bag out on this forum.
Of course Ivan takes most the blame, but he’s gone. He can’t do anymore damage.
As far as the financials go, . I’m happy with his efforts there. I just think we need a better CEO, make him the CFO.
I believe as long as his signings are on the books, the damage is continual.
