When is Dodoro going to make his best list-management decision & leave the club?

Here we go...
Seeing we haven't finished top 4 in either the VFL of AFL for over 10 years I'd suggest our list management and recruiting has been way below average.
But hey, lets not get facts in the way of celebrating a good second round pick once in a blue moon.
We were 2 goals off a VFL GF 2 years ago.
5 all Australians this year buddy!
Team success supersedes individual success
Has never built a strong side.
The last five years are pretty much a write-off as far as I am concerned.
Settle down Kelvin.
I would have thought the likes of Tippa, McKenna, Z.Merrett, Heppell, McGrath, Fantasia in the last 10 years is solid considering our draft sanctions and losing some solid players in Hibberd to get nothing of value back...
Oh wait, we turned Crammers into Zach...
Don't let facts get in the way of a bitter rant mete.
Yeah and Willy went on to win that by 10 goals.
We finished fourth in the VFL in 2015. Get your facts straight next time.
Surely his recruiting needs to be questioned if we still can't win finals in the next few years you know sometimes it might not be the coaches fault why we been crap for so long.
Ok let's revisit after the next few years.
Let's just ignore what happened last 4 years. FMD
The universal love he gets on here is borderline absurd. He's been around a lot longer then the last 3 years and he lost 3 picks not 30.
I'm not saying dump him or that he's hopeless but lets not pretend he's a proven gun. He's very much been middle of the road, it looks like its improving but you can excuse people for having doubts.
Absolutely. Just don't make stuff up in supporting your argument is all.
That can apply both ways obviously.
I think I liked this thread better when it was full of bad photoshop and taking the mickey.
He's no Ameet Bains that's for sure.
Its the only thread about him.
I can make another thread about him though if you'd prefer?
He picks players, he doesn't train or coach them
Who would you have taken in place of the players he took?
Take note, I want posts BEFORE the players were chosen, none of this hindsight bullshit.
Is it just me or does most of the angst come in response to this stupid thread title?
Edit: if this was just the 'Adrian Dodoro/List Management thread' it would much more accurately reflect the tenor of the discussion in the tread. There would then seem much less of a need to come here and argue with people that he should be sacked for something he had no control over while we wait to see what shape the list is really in.
Wasn't really directed at you. Your post only followed those which came before it, which is why I didn't quote you. My post was about the thread generally.
The thread started as banter... at some point we've collectively (apparently) drunk our own bathwater, and now the thread has become a shitfight between the ones that believe the sun shines out of his arse and people looking for any opportunity to criticise him as if to prove that it doesn't.
As with anything, the truth is somewhere in the middle.
That's what I mean... go back and read the OP, the thread title was always meant to take the piss. At some point, people have started to take it seriously
"We are a draft and develop club" a strategy that hasn't worked imo.
Not saying we should stop going to the draft but at the same time you cant keep relying on it you need to trade in qaulity to complement that draft talent.
