I find it interesting how it has been reported and I reckon regardless of whether it was Suma that leaked, there are going to be some interesting conversations around Freo HQ and in particular the panel members about whether someone has spoken to someone else.

Something I've experienced many times is how a conversation can be perceived so differently between the people involved. As an example, the article talks about Suma raising the idea of the CEO being involved in disciplinary action and not leaving it up to the leadership group, that could well be straight out of his time at the Eagles when the players got away with murder and may have some validity particularly if the problems are occurring in the leadership group. Ties in with his raising of the drugs culture at the Eagles although how that is relevant, I couldn't say.

My gut feel is that Suma has read the room, looked at the list, looked at the potential CEOs and made a gut call that he's not getting the job, has made a point of pointing out the issues and how he thinks they should be solved and will sit back and wait for the call in three years time when the new coach is struggling. In this scenario, he's probably responsible for telling someone what he said or even what he was going to say in the interview and the reporter has got the info and extrapolated what really happened.

I like the bit that Sue Murphy was absent...
Was she sick?
Has she stepped down?
Is she the clubs token female in the process with no real input?
Surely if you are on the coaching committee, you are committed to actually attending the interview part - its bizarre

I just checked on Sue Murphy. Apart from being on the Dockers board, she is also on the board of Monodelphous and West Australian Treasury Corp as well as sitting on the Senate of UWA. Sometimes with that many roles it’s hard to juggle all appointments. Maybe she has full confidence in the other 4 members of the panel and so attended something more requiring her input.

Either way, looking at her CV, calling her a “token female” is way off the mark and a little uncalled for.

But she is on the panel to provide a different perspective than three ex-professional footballers can. If they went into the process expecting Sumich to be a good chance, I would have thought she was too important to not be available to sit in on his interviews.

Maybe the answer is in your question. Maybe the only people who saw Sumich as a viable option are a small number in the media but to avoid looking like we don’t rate him, we interviewed him. Or maybe the interviews are recorded and Sue Murphy, while not being in a position to ask questions, is able to have input. None of us are really sure what the process is.
My only reason for replying above was to point out sometimes busy people are unable to attend every meeting they should and to call out the sexism.

I would have thought she was specifically put on that panel as a matter of diversity. So as well as all of her other skills and talents, she was also picked for this panel because she's a women and can provide a different viewpoint to 3 footballers.

If she's not sitting in on the interview with one of the main players then it makes it look like the club are using her for a token position and not getting the benefit of her different viewpoint. So my question would be - are you calling out the sexism or is demo1.

I vote for me.

And by the way, when you say “she was also picked for this panel because she’s a woman and can provide a different viewpoint to 3 footballers” it doesn’t need to be both. It might just have been the latter.

Agreed. Sue Murphy may have been picked on the strength of her CV, and, as a non-footballer, for the different perspective she could bring to discussions. Her gender should be irrelevant.

Well none of it is of much consequence if she's not there.

Well I think we can rule out Clarko, unless you want to take on the bookies.

$1.08 is pretty much a sure thing - put up $100 and you're going to bank a whopping $8. If you want to sniff out a good bet follow Davo - ask him at his free kegger on the weekend.

But what about Clarko's Coogee house? Are you telling me that was all b/s? I can't believe it.
