Apparently he has been replaced by another ex - Tiger in Wayne Campbell. Has to be an upgrade, right? Discuss.

Former Richmond captain Wayne Campbell has been named the AFL's new national umpiring director

RELATED
FORMER Richmond captain Wayne Campbell will replace Jeff Gieschen as the AFL's national umpiring director. 
 
Campbell, who played 297 games for the Tigers from 1991 to 2005 and won four Jack Dyer medals as Richmond's best and fairest, will be responsible for the development of the AFL's senior umpiring panel and the overall strategy for umpiring at all levels of the game. 
 
He will join new senior umpiring coach Hayden Kennedy, a veteran of 495 VFL/AFL games as a field umpire, in a new-look leadership team in the League's umpiring department. 
 
Since his retirement, Campbell has worked in a range of off-field roles at the Western Bulldogs and Richmond, to further his aspirations in football administration.
 
Wider role for new umpires boss
 
AFL general manager of football operations Mark Evans said he was delighted to be able appoint Campbell to the role. 
 
"Wayne was a high-class player with Richmond, with a deep understanding of the strategy and tactics of the game," he said.
 
"Throughout his playing career, he was a leader on the field and around his club and, since his retirement, he has sought to build his knowledge base and head into a career in football administration.
 
"The AFL is delighted Wayne has accepted this role as his experience in implementing programs for elite performance at club level will be invaluable for AFL umpiring.
 
"His understanding of the modern game and trends on the field will assist the AFL Laws of the Game process and he possesses the administrative, management and leadership skills to drive the recruitment and retention of umpires nationally and expand the talent pathway programs."
 
Umpires coach Sawers leaves with pride
 
Campbell, who will take up his role in mid-January, said he was thrilled to win the position.
 
"What attracted me to the role was working in a high-performance environment where I think I can make an impact," he said.
 
"The breadth of management skills required in the implementation of the national umpiring plan is an area that excited me and I want to continue the good work already done in increasing the respect for umpires and help boost the number of umpires at grass-roots level.
 
"As a team, we will also continue to explore ways to expand the diversity of umpires at all levels and I'm looking forward to meeting the umpiring fraternity and can't wait to get stuck into the role."

About time. Geischen had NFI.

Hopefully Campbell can bring back consistent umpiring instead of a different interpretation every week.

Gieschen was typical AFL. Learnt his lessons from Baghdad Bob...would stand there and lie to your face and be affronted if you didn't believe him.

There was a time when I would have believed this mattered.

Will be missed by exactly zero fans.

Pretty sure a dead slater would be an upgrade.

 

Also it's spelled "descus"

If it was the other way around with Campbell being replaced by the Geisch l am pretty sure it would be 'disgust.' l know l would be.

There was a time when I would have believed this mattered.

Not even a time for me.

The job itself is a empty title, they should just name him head of umpire image management, cos that's all he will be. I'm betting they don't even get new cliche's to run with it'll still be, oh we are running at 86 % effiency ( to the letter of the law of the rules) and that will be his job.

 

Hell he could simply record those words, put it on his answering machine, and dissappear for the rest of the year, and he'll still be considered to be doing his job by the AFL.

Will have KB up his ■■■■ from day dot

Yeah, things will only improve when KB ■■■■■ off and dies.

Seriously must be pushing 120+ judging by the hair back in the early 80s

He needs to be remembered somehow.

Even if it’s for being a c*ck.

Geish as he leaves his job

Should have been shot years ago.

Architect of the decline in umpiring standards or product of the corporate system he worked in?

 

Either way will be remembered as one of the worst ever servants of the game

The second one. Tis like Smoking companies setting up "independant" researching into the risks of smoking.

 

His Job was merely PR, and he was bad at it.
