Position Vacant!…Giro Numero Venti…(Round 20)…

Our Italian Correspondents BYRD, CONTESSA MANSKI and UNCLE EV ask who is going to fill the shoes of the Football Operations Manager’s position. They have a unique way of applying to the position too…


Between now and at the end of the year, the AFL will have a new Football Operation Manager that was vacated due the scandalous circumstances by Simon “Lethal Weapons” Lethlean back in mid July of this year.

Expressions of interest closed last Monday for the position left vacant by the departure just over three weeks ago.

So what does the best candidate actually should be looking for?


The AFL has listed the selection criteria’s for the best candidate for the job.


  • Ensuring all AFL and AWL matches are delivered according to the rules and regulations.
  • Overseeing the delivery of National AFL Talent Programs to develop and support the best male and female players, coaches and umpires.
  • Overseeing AFL umpires to ensure the game is well officiated.
  • Leading a large high performance team including all of their portfolios.
  • AFLW
  • Player education and welfare.
  • Ground operations.
  • Laws of the game.
  • Match Review Panel and the AFL Tribunal.


Clearly, what seems to missing in this job description for the new football boss is on-field management of this sport.

What about guiding, nurturing, overseeing the game, demonstrating a vital interest in ensuring the game remains honest and true.

This is a job for someone with a serious interest to what the game should be and who has the guts and determination to take it there.


Potential successful applicants have already submitted their CV’s hoping for the top job.
