Bit of a shock with the resignation of Jason Reddick from Willy,perhaps recent happenings has had an adverse effect,anything known Wally?
errrr he didn't resign CGull, and that's a fact
I guessed as much Wal when i read the club statement,why cant they just come out and say he got the lemonade,spin doctors at it again
The club has maintained the line that somehow it was a mutual decision but he was sacked, why? Your guess is as good as mine CGull

Subject: RE: WFC Club Update
Dear Valued Member,
Williamstown Football Club wishes to announce that the Club and respected CEO Jason Reddick are parting ways.
Our Club would like to acknowledge Jason for his dedicated efforts since 2015. In his tenure as Chief Executive Officer, Jason has contributed substantially to WFC’s standing as the most successful standalone VFL club.
After 7 years at the helm, both Jason and the Board believe now is the right time for a change.
Former President, Fred Hall, has been appointed interim CEO whilst we undertake a thorough process to secure a new CEO.
To our members, partners, stakeholders and community we appreciate your continued support, an official statement with further details will follow later today.
Could it be that Williamstown and Port Melbourne have been negatively impacted from lack of gaming revenue due to covid closures and as such are cost cutting ? Port Melbourne also parted way with a full time administrator during the week.
The only counter argument i can think of is that it is unlikely as Port had a 70k profit last year in spite of the gaming venue closure, however this is the only reason i can think of for the cost cutting measures by both Port and Williamstown.

I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN, I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED, I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!
Of course the Club's revenue stream has been impacted by the constant lockdowns and closure of our pokies venue but this decision was not based on that as far as i'm aware, a temporary CEO has been put in place and the search for a new CEO has begun so it's not a money issue
Just out of curiosity, what would a VFL club CEO be paid?
CEOs out in the business world command hefty salaries,this would be no different,in the region of $150k i would think.I remember when Mark Fotheringham was installed as Willy's first gm he was paid $30k from memory,long time ago!
Grant Smith was the first GM/CEO way back in 1989 CGull, Fothers wasn't GM until 1992
