Adrian Anderson resigns from the AFL

Posted by: 3AW Football | 5 December, 2012 - 11:42 AM
Adrian Anderson arrives at AFL House on November 3 (FFX)

LISTEN BELOW: Adrian Anderson's extensive interview with Sports Today.

Adrian Anderson has resigned as the AFL's Football Operations Manager after 9-years in the job.

Caroline Wilson broke the news on the Neil Mitchell Program saying that Anderson has been one the most influential people in the organisation.

"This is a very, and highly significant departure. He has resigned partly because he realised he didn’t have the support of the CEO of the AFL to be a potential replacement for him when he finally goes,"

"I think the nomination of Gillian McLachlan as Andrew's (Demetriou) preferred successor probably prompted Adrian to look elsewhere, and start thinking about moving elsewhere" Ms Wilson told Neil Mitchell.

"This is the third executive departure, and the fourth very senior departure, from the AFL since the end of the season" she said.

  • I am glad Adrian is gone he made too many changes in the game I was sick of trying to keep up with it all.

  • Maybe time for him to step up into a admin role of a sport that is played internationally, while we in Melbourne like to think AFL is a big sport, in reality hardly anyone outside of a few states in Australia has ever heard about it. As a person involved in a sports like AFL & Gaelic it can't be very rewarding when the sport is so small.

  • Matt-proudly-un-australian
    you make me laugh keep up the good work, however you are right in this post!
    As for Adrian Anderson i am sure he will find something else quite quickly the word on the greap vine is maybe North Melbourne? But either was he was never senior or polished enough to hold the top job at the AFL. But then again with whats been happening in the AFL the code is starting to stink!

  • So when's the North Melbourne press conference on to announce they've picked thier new CEO?

    Michael Wednesday 5 December, 2012 - 12:38 PM
