Essendon Football Club Committee
Noonan holds the record for the Essendon Football Club's shortest ever term as a committeeman. In the 1992 Club election, he was elected to the committee. Within a couple of days, 50 "lost" votes were found, a recount was conducted and, with 18 of the votes for Noonan declared invalid, Barry J. Keam (who served on the Essendon Football Club Committee from 1976 to 1995) was restored to his place on the Committee.
Noonan later served on the Essendon Football Club Committee as Vice-President from 1994 to 1995.

Famous quotes containing the words committee, club and/or football:
“In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each others affairs, who come out together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.”
—Cyril Connolly (19031974)
“In another year Ill have enough money saved. Then Im gonna go back to my hometown in Oregon and Im gonna build a house for my mother and myself. And join the country club and take up golf. And Ill meet the proper man with the proper position. And Ill make a proper wife who can run a proper home and raise proper children. And Ill be happy, because when youre proper, youre safe.”
—Daniel Taradash (b. 1913)
“People stress the violence. Thats the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it theres a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. Theres a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies stewn everywhere. When the systems interlock, theres a satisfaction to the game that cant be duplicated. Theres a harmony.”
—Don Delillo (b. 1926)
