Australian Football League Melbourne Demons To Submit Restructure Bid At AFL Commission
Published June 14, 2013
Australian Football League Melbourne Demons' bid for an AFL-funded multi-million dollar restructure "comes with the club still struggling to lure an experienced football boss" and uncertainty lingering over the replacement for President Don McLardy, according to Caroline Wilson of THE AGE. McLardy will accompany Demons' CEO Peter Jackson to Friday's AFL Commission talks, "but is unlikely to remain at the helm of the club for much longer as the league, along with Jackson, moves to streamline the club's board." Jackson's bid for emergency AFL funding is not expected to receive an immediate response from the Commission, "which has not yet been briefed regarding the extent of Melbourne's dysfunctional football operation which is regarded as overpaid and top heavy" (THE AGE, 6/14).
