Good to hear Scotty say that it doesn't feel like we're on top of the ladder, even though we've been sitting there since round 2.

Opposition supporters who think that we'll get ahead of ourselves may need to rethink that line of thought.

I think he is having a crack at his own supporters with this one. Hes wondering if they know where he has the team sitting!

Think he is getting better but alot rides on this year's finals.
We like everyone else win and lose as a team.

If we happen to lose another prelim, or the GF, this year it’s so simplistic to blame the coach.

Did Buckley lose the Pies last year’s GF? Of course not.

I'm more interested in our forwardline and backline coaches. Surely they will be poached by Carlton or north melbourne

None of them will leave if other clubs enquire about their services, they are Geelong through and through especially Scarlett.

He may work there and played there but i'm pretty sure Scarlo is an Essendon supporter isn't he?

The only reason I see Enright or Scarlett leaving would be to pursue a senior coaching gig elsewhere, and that is years away. Both had long lengthy careers at the club and were immediately in a coaching role; their heart is clearly with Geelong.

Stranger things have happened I guess.

Fairly sure that Scarlo grew up supporting Geelong although I'd be happy to be corrected.
From his interview with Hamish McLachlan published in the HuN just recently.

HM: The Hulk … … Your old man played almost 200 games for Geelong — how the hell do you end up barracking for someone other than Geelong?

MS: I remember as a youngster, maybe four or five, when Dad took me to a Geelong — Essendon game at Kardinia Park. We used to stand in the old past players shed, and Essendon beat Geelong that day. I wasn’t happy about it, so I changed teams!

HM: You were light on for loyalty back then ….

MS: Seemingly! That’s bad isn’t it! I had some unreal memories — I loved Essendon. I saw some great premierships in the 80s — how good were 84 & 85. I remember being at the MCG watching the 93’ premiership as a mad Essendon fan. I was a member for about 20 years! I grew up in Geelong, and I wanted to play in Geelong, so I did end up at the right club even though I was mislead early on! Even though I was a passionate Essendon man, I wanted to play for my home town so I was lucky, bloody lucky.

HM: You debuted against Essendon?

MS: I did. In 1998. A big crowd, and a big game for us. I think we knocked them out of the finals. Matty Lloyd was one of my heroes growing up. There weren’t many rotations back then, so I sat on the bench for the first quarter and watched Lloydy kick three goals. I played on him for the remaining three quarters and I think he kicked three on me, finishing with six for the game. I was in awe, and just couldn’t believe I was out on the MCG standing next to one of my childhood heroes.

HM: Playing for Geelong, were you still an Essendon member at that point?

MS: I was. I think I was for a couple of years.

HM: You were playing for Geelong … as a Bombers Member?

MS: Weird now you bring it up. I think I just thought, I may as well keep signing up. They kept sending me mail for a long time. Even after I’d played 200 games for Geelong, they were still sending me letters in the mail. I wrote a letter back to them saying that I played for Geelong. They stopped sending them to me after that, so they must have received it I guess.

HM: When did you stop barracking for them?

MS: The day I got drafted I stopped, but I still watched them and always had a bit of a soft spot. It was a really deep passion. I had a good group of schoolmates that barracked for Essendon as well, so we’d watch all the games, and rode the highs and lows with them. I have some great memories following a great club.
