The board of the Brisbane Lions AFL club is in disarray, with 2 board members asking the chairman, Angus Johnson, to resign in favour of club legend Leigh Matthews.
AFL Commission chairman Mike Fitzpatrick has told Sportal.com.au:
“It is crucial that the club’s leadership and direction is settled as quickly as possible to provide the Lions with stability at a time when it is actively planning for the 2014 season and beyond, including the appointment of a senior coach and the development of new facilities.
“As the Lions sign or re-sign key players, recruit members and seek out corporate support, they need a board that is pursuing a clear and united vision for the club.”
In an effort to assist the club’s board reach agreement, the AFL Commission has invited the parties to attend mediation at AFL House in Melbourne; an offer which has been welcomed by the club.
