Caroline Wilson dissects Andrew Demetriou's AFL legacy

Although Andrew Demetriou's decision to resign from one of the most "powerful jobs in Australian sport" was not a surprise, the timing of the announcement was, says chief football writer Caroline Wilson.

Andrew Demetriou's reign as AFL supremo will end after the 2014 season.

Mike Fitzpatrick, Chairman of the AFL Commission, announced Demetriou's resignation at a press conference which began at 10am at AFL House.

Fitzpatrick said that Demetriou had been a "significant force in our competition" and had presided over "a period of extraordinary growth".

"For me, the real strength in Andrew's leadership hasn't been in stadia, he has been the conscience of the game, promoting the importance of women .. multi-cultural aspects ... he has put fans and players first.

"Andrew has been the first in Australia sport - after the racing industry - to deliver an integrity unit.

"In summary, Andrew has been one of the most influential CEOs in our history," Fitzpatrick said.

Andrew says Meatloaf would be up there as one of the decisions that perhaps could have been better.

Demetriou said that he had told the AFL Commission of his decision at a meeting on the 17th of February. He said it had been a "privilege and an honour" to serve the game, but the league "needs renewal, needs a fresh set of eyes".

"The growth of the game has been extraordinary," Demetriou said.

"It’s been a wonderful journey full of challenges but I wouldn’t have it any other way.’’

Pointedly, when asked if the doping scandal had taken a toll upon him, he responded sharply: "I didn't inject anyone ... it had had no impact on me"

"And all I know (about) what we did was as a game (we) always put the players first to protect the integrity of the game.

"It’s had no impact on me whatsoever."

He paid credit to his mentors and compatriots at the league and quoted the words of former AFL administrator Jill Lindsay - on her deathbed - to look after Australian Rules Football because "the game meant to much to so many people".

Demetriou gave his deputy Gillon McLachlan, a frontrunner to replace him, a big wrap, saying, "I couldn't ask or someone more loyal, more committed, more supportive".

He said that he left the game with no regrets.

After a long list of thank-yous - including to the media and AFL fans, Demetriou became emotional.

"The AFL industry is like a family ... great people, great game...

"I worked out the other day that I have spent half my life in football ... 26 years out of my 52."

He said that he and his wife had agreed that they would not let the job take too much toll on their family.

"Symone and and my children have been my sunshine, my life and my hope," he said.

Asked if the Essendon supplements scandal would overshadow his legacy, Demetriou was hopeful that "people won't take a snapshot of one particular point of time ... that's for others to judge".

He said he was "pretty proud" of how the AFL handled the Essendon crisis last year, saying that the league had bolstered its integrity unit and changed rules in response and was now "well-equipped to handles issues going forward".

"We (Demetriou and Fitzpatrick) were both concerned about sport science a couple of years ago," he said.

"Whether we could’ve acted earlier ... we just weren’t in a position there. There was enough hearsay to have us worried.

"The AFL has done all it can do in this situation. I’m proud of how we acted last year.

"What happens thereafter is in (anti-doping agency) ASADA’s hands."

Fitzpatrick said that he had been discussing the transition of the CEO role since 2012. The AFL has retained a search firm to find a new CEO and Demetriou will have no role in appointing his successor.

Demetriou said he considers the introduction of the two expansion teams, and the return of football to the revamped Adelaide Oval as two of the great achievements of his decade at the top.

Commentator Anthony Hudson says the timing of the announcement, less than two weeks before the start of the season, was "extraordinary". The season launch takes place in Adelaide on Wednesday night. However, as Jon Pierik reported in late January, many in the AFL industry expected 2014 would be Demetriou's last at the AFL.

Pierik reported: "Demetriou did not deny in August that he had been head-hunted by the Association of Tennis Professionals, which at the time was searching for an executive chairman and president. He said he had no intention of leaving but admitted: 'I get lots of approaches.'"

Former Richmond star, and former Essendon and GWS coach Kevin Sheedy has hailed Demetriou's impact.

"He's made the AFL a better competition and a better game in the whole of Australia, that's his legacy," Sheedy said on Monday.

"He's been a person that's changed the game as an administrator, there's no doubt about that.

"He put the AFL ahead of all other sports and not just - by a mile.

"And he made other organisations, along with the AFL Commission, put everybody under pressure."

Demetriou has been AFL CEO since 2003, presiding over a period of prosperity for the league, as its revenue from TV deals went to unsurpassed heights. He has overseen the expansion of the competition to 18 teams, with the introduction of the Gold Coast Suns and the Greater Western Sydney Giants.

However, his handling of the Essendon supplements scandal over the past year has been heavily criticised. At the weekend, News Limited published the names of Essendon players who may be facing ASADA sanctions. Hudson said that Demetriou "would have liked this whole thing (Essendon) sorted out before he left".

Issues facing the league currently include the implementation of "equalisation" measures designed to assist financially challenged clubs, and negotiations for the league to buy Etihad Stadium.

Demetriou, 52, played 106 games for North Melbourne and Hawthorn between 1981 and 1988. He was CEO of the AFL Player's Association between 1998 and 2000 and is also an AFL Commissioner.

    • This is true, the increase in TV revenues was not his doing rather the result of an arms race between the networks. Either way Mickey mouse would have negotiated a better deal that would have looked after rural and grass roots fans a bit better. Good riddance I say - A great day for the AFL.
