Simmo talked about it how they are down to like 5-6 main staff and how many left for better opportunity's outside of footy. I assumed he meant Selwood as he left for that reason.

Both are a massive loss as Selwood was deep into getting the womans team up and about.

So we have lost: Van Berlo, Rosa, Glass , Selwood, Batemen and a few more with names that escape me.

I’d suggest most clubs have lost similar numbers and calibre due to COVID cut backs. Cut backs that were required to save under-performing clubs from going under.

VFL missed a great opportunity for natural selection last year.

Mind you, this season won’t be over till it’s over.

Some clubs yes, but i see clubs like Freo as an example have kept almost all their staff or have added to it , and a few of the Vic clubs have done the same.

Maybe WC are smart and saving coin during this Covid situation so we have more cash in the bank latter.

There's a fair bit of Chicken Little going on. Good on him, I reckon. Hurts the Eagles but Darren's obviously got something else lined up so power to him.

He quit in disgust when Simmo told him we need more talls.
"Mate, 3 potential midfielders with all of our picks? Time to fall on your sword, we don't take too kindly to that kind of drafting at West Coast. And shave off those sideburns!"

As much as it sucks to lose him, better to lose him now rather than just before the trade/draft period.
Agree on the proviso we appoint a new list manager before the season starts. Then new list manager spends entire season watching our list.
Get someone and end of season and that hurts the club.

It's not just the pay for his current position that would be affected, but also his career path beyond this job. There are less assistant coaching positions now, so those who hold aspirations to get to a head coaching role are going to have to wait even longer to move up the ranks. Even less back-office jobs now as money has to be directed to the football program.

Well that ******* sucks. Thought he’d done quite well in his short time in the role.

No ill feelings towards Glass as he’s looking after himself and his family which is entirely reasonable. No blame on the club either as their hands are tied by the cap on football spending
