Definitely can't come up with alternatives when he gets caught out on gameday!Game plan an issue.
Seem to be opened up too easily especially by pace.
Did well to re jig the game plan in 2011 and get the club up for a tilt in 2013 and last year after a quick re set. He has never really done a full rebuild but has got results and had the team in contention. Mark of an outstanding planner and motivator.
Tactically thou is why I'd place him mid tier in coaches rather than at the top like a Clarkson or Ross. He just seems to be out thought if Plan A doesn't work. He sets the list up beautifully, plans well all week, has a good system but come match day he seems to white knuckle it and is reactive. Constantly going off at umpires or in disbelief seems a symptom of this.
Then plan is literally put the house on Dangerwood getting the midfield clearance to Hawkins. Before that for years it was waiting for Selwood to lift the entire team and literally drag us to a win. Those players are good enough for that awfully simple yet shallow plan to mostly work. It's such a flawed plan full of holes, for example tag Selwood and our entire game plan crumbles before our very eyes!Chris Scott has a far better win percentage than any other coach in the history of the game, but apparently he is a terrible coach.
Imagine how much better his win loss ratio would be if he was a good coach.[/QUOTE]
Scott got kissed on the dick with a premiership ready side on coaching debut and has steadily sunk the ship since, somewhat although not as badly a la Buckley.
It's almost unfair Brad gets berated for being the angry buffoon when Chris is just as similar temperamentally but just hasn't had the opportunity to show it as much.
I wouldn't want a Scott brother anywhere near my club personally
