At the bare minimum we need to be bringing in senior experience here. Looks like it is shaping up like that but very interested in seeing how our coaching structure looks next year.

Clarko needs to go back to 2004 and look at this like he looked at it then. This was a significant POD we have lost

Thanks to google ;) for making me sound like I know who he is

I don't want to have to vilify you :(

but it will if we are successful in our wish for a AFLW licence, need to plan around that.

Did Richmond drop their AFLW program altogether?
I know I’m in the minority here but I have absolutely no interest in woman’s football

If my Hawthorn membership price increases due to us having an AFLW side, I will not be happy

Sorry to intrude, but how have you guys rated Burns’ work over the past three years? Seems to be a decent get as an assistant considering his experience in the industry, but would love to see how he’s generally rated :)

He has the accolades and has served under two good systems (Collingwood/Hawthorn). But he was our forward coach for two years and our forwardline has been dysfunctional and he was our stoppages coach this year and we had a tendency to get destroyed at stoppages. It's obviously not all his fault but I'm not that sad to see him go.

I got a distinct feeling that Clarko didn't rate him. I know he's been highly regarded though and probably should be in the mix for a senior role soon.

Fair points. He’s looking after our defence it seems so it might be something of a breath of fresh air for him, hopefully :)

I'm sure there are posters on here who would have some inside knowledge but looking at it very simplistically… He left Collingwood and they improved. He was in charge of our forward line for a two year period where it was dysfunctional and oversaw our stoppages in a season where they were dysfunctional...

It's a bit like John Barker. Great bloke apparently but leaves a trail of destruction behind him wherever he's coached.
