Surely now is the time to poach Victoria’s finest. Might be our only chance to look somewhat desirable as a non covid basket case location. Strike while the iron is hot.Balme would be the first appointment in a long time I had complete faith in.
Would be a massive, massive get for our club.
At least he's had a primeGetting Balme would be the most South Australian thing we could do. A guy past his prime looking for a retirement cheque
It's SACA 101.
Maybe, but you'd want to make sure he's still got his finger on the pulse.At least he's had a prime
We've been steered by people who've never had or will have a prime
Would think he'd ease more into an advisory/mentor capacity anyway rather than the hands on doer which would be perfect for him and us.
And in those 4 years they won a premiership last year.
We don’t seem to respect people who have the runs on the board irrespective of their age. Interesting that NFL coaches do so well into their late 60’s/early 70’s (just like their politicians ).You know he’s not kicking the footy right? Who gives a sh*t he’s 68.
That's why he's perfectly fine in an adviser/mentor capacity for Kelly and Nicks. He's not there to make the big decisions and overhaul everything, but to lend his expertise to make sure the people currently in charge who we want to take us forward are making sound decisions and steer them to the right ones if they're not.

The reason why Balme is good is because he has able to adapt - his age isn’t an impediment to him.
Wayne Jackson is 70+ years old... but I'd have him at the club in some capacity.
