We have a very even team, but we don't really have that player who can drag us over the line the way Phillips tends to do when we've played finals previously. That's my biggest concern going in.
Orla steps up and surprises some, but not me, to support her rampaging team mates and the cup is ours. Hmmmmmmmmmm we r proud.

criteria to be considered including the current season's performance, available resources, player talent and team management
I think that what gets him the prize. If every coach had a Phillips to base their team off....... ;) :) ;)

hehe I'm not salty, just really proud of how Starc has created the team strategy and environment. Admirable stuff, and super deserving of the award.

While as a Lion I think he more than deserves this I must admit I was a little surprised to see that Clarke didn't get it. It amuses me no end of how salty Crows fans must be to see that their coach came 2nd!
I can't speak for other Crows fans, but I'm not salty at all - I have massive respect for Starcevich for having rebuilt your side so well after your initial marquee players deserted you and you were absolutely raided by expansion clubs. I had assumed you guys would struggle for several seasons, and your re-emergence so fast speaks volumes to the culture your club has built. Obviously I'm going to be barracking for the Crows, but if any non-Crows side were to win the flag I'd want it to be the Lions.

This game should be an absolute cracker! My feeling is that the Crows and Brisbane are the two sides which have the greatest sum of talent. They don't rely on a particular structure or game style to win, they just let their players play their natural game. Can't wait!
