Let's hope that we find someone as good (not so much for his preseason stuff but his inseason management) and this doesn't turn out to be a sliding doors moment when we only win 3 of the next 4 flags;)

Looks like we had a succession plan - Selwyn Griffith who was our head of strength and conditioning this year.

Interestingly enough for Burgess despite his huge credentials this is the first time his side has tasted the ultimate glory.

The last couple of years of off field staff coming into this club, each one just seemed like another piece of the puzzle being put together. He seemed to be another important cog for the club, and I noticed when the players mentioned him they spoke well of him.

I wish him all the best.

Club has so many learnings from Burgo, write them down, keep the notebook inside a safe that's inside another safe, never EVER lose it.

Thank you so much Burgo for all you've done since arriving, fair chance we aren't premiers without you. Best of luck on your next venture, always a MFC legend. 💕

Talking him into another year was so important in hindsight. Kept him at the club for another year which proved critical but also as they knew he was gone internally they would have been able to groom his replacement too.

Be derelict in our duties if we don't give Dave Misson a call...

I'm not too worried. Hawthorn Richmond Geelong etc all managed to win multiple flags without him. Obviously good at his job but he's not the only bloke on earth that can train people
I'm more not worried because he set the standard, the players know what to do and we can just do the same s**t again. Also we don't have a ******* moron 'sports scientist' ruining blokes left, right and centre anymore.
