above quote = generalising.

Absolutely. there was an interesting article in the Courier Mail about Brisbane's assistant coaches and support staff. Many come from a teaching background and that's been recognised as an important factor in the club's rapid improvement on and off the field. Pretty sure John Kennedy Snr, Parkin and Clarko were all school teachers too.

who would have thought a teaching background would be helpful when dealing with teenagers?

A 5 time BNF winner of the west gippy league BnF was a scool teacher.. my good mate and was overlooked in the 2002 draft because of a knee.. brilliant footballer, eats you for breakfast with footy knowledge Tef.
