Round 9: Paul Marsh vs Michael Barlow
After a great pre-season at the new club the podcast is up and running for the new year. I thought there was no better guest to have first up then AFL players association CEO, Paul Marsh.
What is the latest update on the collective bargaining agreement? What is Pauls’ insight on the reasoning behind Gillon McLachlan not attending the Players Association delegate meeting in December?
Paul stopped in for a quick chat to provide the answers to these questions and more. He also provides some insight from his days working at the Australian Cricketers’ Association and mentions some of the more colour characters he has come across in that sport.
We also talk about the role of the players association outside of the money aspect and the better performers at the recent delegate meeting for the Players association (both on and off the field).
It was great to find out more about the man that is there to help the players including myself and it all makes for a great return episode for the year.
