    Coach Who Should Our Next Coach Be (Poll Updated)

    Charlesworth was an assistant at Adelaide when they were dominating under Craig. He devised stoppage defence structure in defensive 50's, based on hockey, and the Crows only gave up something like 1 goal for the whole season under this scenario... v impressive. Helped revolutionise structured...

    best example of a clickbait article title I have ever seen. Actual article is more a piece on how bad it is that no women even coach AFLW sides currently... which is crazy tbh

    the young blokes are the ones that have been exposed in the past... Teague, Shaw, Primus, Leppitsch (too early), Voss (too early), Hird (too early), Bucks (too early). Seems to be a consensus that you need 10 years coaching experience before taking on the top job now

    sounds like its down to Scott, Pyke & Kingsley. Kingsley the outsider, though seems to be impressing a lot in interviews. So will come down to going for an experienced coach with runs on the board, and a safer option to steer a massive club out of the administrative sh*t show that we are now...

    Can Robert Harvey coach?

    Barassi was a great leader and motivator, and not stupid. Men would run through walls for him... likewise Parkin. If you ever attended one of his leadership sessions, he had a great aura about him, and thought outside of the square, so was no doubt ahead of his time

    List Mgmt. Trade and F/A - Part 3

    Jury well and truly out atm. Risks having multiple players move past him, as you say, or could click and become much needed midfield depth. Hasnt kicked on, but has a great attitude and well liked. Weird knowing that we originally passed on Bianco for him in the draft. Would love to...

    Media manager should be sacked for that. Was allowed to go on for way too long, after they were clearly under duress. Thought they did ok to fend off the questions under the circumstances. Were never going to stand up and admit all their failings.. reminds me of a certain club administration...

    Disappointing from Murph. Showed more in his second year that was he has this year. Elite reading of play not as evident, slow decision maker, kicking skills iffy, not dominating in the air, and v good aerobic capacity not translating to on-field performance whatsoever. Should be our Howe...

    I have the same source... Caro on Footy Classified. She said the exact same thing. So much for a long and exhaustive process. "Mitchell, do you want it?". "no..." "Clarko, do you want it?. "no..." "Brad, do you want it?". "hmmm..."

    you talking general attitude, or lack of elite fitness... or something more specific? some inside help is what we are crying out for, and he has been left to rot in the two's. something's not right...

    Coach Who Should Our Next Coach Be (Poll Updated)

    Has done the top job before, plus worked as an assistant at Collingwood, and is highly rated by the players and officials that saw first hand what he did whilst with us (not many left tbf). Wouldnt hate it, but personally think he has been out of the game a bit and doesnt have the blemish-free...

    They shouldve bitten the bullet and traded Sidey last year. Now his value is virtually zero. Instead we trade 21 and 26 year olds. We're too sentimental & not forward thinking enough when it comes to these things. No doubt too important for the hierachy to try and cling on to their jobs...

    Clarko most likely playing it beautifully. Hawks forced to honour his contract, as the top dog, or pay him out $1.2m. End of next year he's perfectly placed to take a role like Gold Coast... get away from Melbourne media, with a $1m - $2m subsidised cherry from Gillon to go and get some sun...

    A lot of coaches seem to ref their family when announcing big decisions, or looking at all new options these days. With interstate moves, kids in school etc, it obv affects a lot of people, and shows how important their support network is in making these decisions. Even Sam Mitchell had to...

    Now think that the trend has gone away from one high paid coach... ala Clarkson, to make sure that there are enough assistants surrounding them, to cover all areas adequately under a soft cap. Even hawthorn looking to move to this model asap. I could see them going Pyke on $600k, unless...
