I am think Scott should stand down if he don't win the flag this year and go to Carlton, Then we will see how good he is....My reason for him to go sick of seeing his face just like a wife should be trade after 10 years;)

Carlton are an up and coming team, and a good chance of finishing above us next year.
They have 2 absolute superstars, and a lot to look forward to.

I get the feeling that Scott would not want to preside over a rebuild phase at any club.
I doubt whether he would be any good at it anyway.
I reckon he has his sights set on a cushy media or AFL gig where his silver tongue can be fully exploited.
If we tank this year I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled the pin.

Ironically I think he'd have Carlton in the top 4 within a few seasons. They have oodles of natural talent and a no defensive system. It's a perfect fit.

He won't do it though. 10 years of coaching, he needs a year or two away from it

Walsh, Cripps, Weitering

no way would any one of those not be in our top 5 players
Weitering( a genuine key defender) and Walsh are very good and have bright futures - not sure I’d be labelling them ‘absolute superstars’ at this point. Cripps? -he might have been heading that way, but his body has limited him. I’d have thought he’d be lucky to be in top 10 mids now. Not sure I know what a superstar is anyway.
Probably tells us more about our list to be honest.

All 3 are elite but only Cripps has the superstar aura about him & he hasn’t lived up to that this year

He been carrying some injury since some point last year maybe? Hasn’t been right with it. I think without the body damage he might have ‘lived up to it.’ Not sure you could call him elite anymore.

As I have found out in the review thread of the rich, its amazing how often people speak in absolutes. No one is ever gifted a flag... but its not often one gets a coaching job with a team coming off seasons like. GF, GF, GF, PF

CS was able to step in and coach a side that was already trained and welcomed a fresh voice, and a slight tweak in game plan. To some degree I think Beverage did the same after McCartney did a lot of hard work at the Dogs. It under plays that even with the players, one still has to bring them together etc far more example of talent being wasted than being maximised.

He came into the job at a good time no one would question that.

but so did Buckley 12 months later. What’s he got to show for it?
