The last coach that did it was Brendan Bolton I think...........I would suggest that a leadership course would have been recommended to get stewie to develop aspects of his leadership that have been identified as lacking.
We’ve had clear feedback here he struggles to maintain relationships and communicate effectively with those who don’t share the same viewpoint.
Being an effective leader means working well with all people. If he can improve on this it might mean better development of players that originally would have been shunned on previous instinct.
I’m all for it.
Havard... sounds a bit over the top but goes to show how invested in stewie the club really are:

Agree, Bolton was a great personal leader but had NFI when it came to the match day stuff. Dew seems to be the other way round. With Bolton at the helm we werent to far off Carlton over the last 2 years and they have a lot better list then we doI think Boltens issue was his tactics. Not his interpersonal skills.
I feel Dew has the tactics, but maybe can work on the communication side.
Happy that it shuts up the Melbourne media next year though - don’t need a whole season of coach speculation with a bunch of young kids.I don’t like the idea of dew getting an early extension with a year still to go on his contract it’s not as if anyone is going to want to poach him
Rumours around Roughead going north floating around once again. Maybe he's the next forwards coach.When will the penny drop that we have never had a proper functioning forward line that clears out, leads to patterns, crumbs well and has a system and purpose. Surely we can point the bone squarely at Ash Prescott and make a step change and get a forward line coach that makes our crumbers get front and centre and our talls lead AWAY from their directs. I have watched our forwards push back INTO their opponents since day one and we continue to do it. We get a hard leading forward like Corbett and we coach his instincts out of him in the 1's
New forward line coach ...............…. no more Prescott
2MP King and LukosiusI dont think it is a rumour anymore mate. Lock it in
Don't think I'd touch him, he seems to be a bit toxic as far as performance and retention. If we want a mentor we'd need someone that brings an aura with them, and helps with retention and attraction — Roos is the easy name to throw around and whatever you think of him, his name does carry weight in AFL circles.Would we want Ross Lyon as a mentor to Dew for a couple of years?
