Brisbane have nailed the youth vs experience balance perfectly. Who is their list manager?

EDIT - some chap called Dom Ambrogio.
............after 9 straight years of finishing no higher than 12th, and with a very nice academy bonus?

I don't see any elite list management going on here.

Speaking of Brisbane, it's notable that most of their goals are scored in a similar fashion, with smalls running into open goal from close range. It is something that can be countered by playing a smaller back 6 and obviously limiting the number of their deep entries. They will start favorites against anyone at the Gabba these days.

Brady?

Reckon he's up to it and I don't understand why you would think he isn't. His record as a guy who steps up to every single challenge and making a success of it is there for all to see.

Why wouldn't we back him in now?
The only thing he couldnt do was kick the ball but it seems we have had a plethora of those over the years LOL ;) And he doesnt have to do that anymore anyway

People outside of North Melbourne probably don't care about the club’s hatred of Essendon, and that’s because they’re not North Melbourne people.

The same people probably don't care about the “Shinboner” spirit either, and that’s because they don’t understand it.

In the brief period under Shaw, the Shinboner attitude is very much alive and flourishing.
He’s unlocked the spirit underpinning performance and it’s why, when John Longmire rejects North’s overtures to coach the team in 2020, which is widely anticipated, Shaw will be installed as the full-time senior coach.

He gets it Rhyce, or has one insider said this week, has the Shinboner spirit got him?

Whatever the case, it's becoming increasingly likely there won't be a “process” to look a for new coach.

Because the new coach is already there.

“They have all grown a leg under Rhyce Shaw,” Brereton said.

“He's done nothing wrong.”

He says there’s style, strategy and toughness in football.

“You need toughness,” he said.

“Ability is king, your ability to play the game is king, but when there’s two players with the same ability, which one wins the contest? The tougher, the harder, the nastier, the one who creates more carnage for his team.

“There are very few premiership teams ever that you look at and say, they were softish.”

If we go 0-3 from here I'll concede he might not be ready yet. Depends how we play of course.
But win 1 and play well in 2, he's gotta be unlucky to miss out.
Win 2 and there has to be a contract on his desk when he gets home from Perth.
regardless we should give him some more time and establish even better relationships with the club, players and coaches

Imagine if we had him from round 1

Selection was a definite negative. A mid down a significant problem that wasn't able to be overcome.

Allowing *'s HB's to move freely through the corridor also a negative.

Has been impressive but this week not his best effort.

Our boys were corridor side of their opponents at almost all times. Just piss weak tackling efforts meant it counted for nil.

I was keeping track of the corridor issue due to good friday.

He made his first cock up this week, let’s see if he learns from it?

He made this game tougher than it needed to be with an ordinary night at the selection table.

Let’s hope the boys respond against Brisbane, because he let a golden opportunity slip today to make it close to a lock.
So if Jmac keeps getting a game this year in your belief should he get the job if we lost it at the selection table.

I will have serious doubts about where he thinks we are heading if we keep dipping into the McMillan and Hrovat well, instead of seeing what some of our depth can bring?

A player like Hosie should be given game time and I wouldn’t be against dropping Goldy to see if Campbell can be the number 1 ruck?

Godly may be gone next year, so let’s see if we need to look for another ruckman or if Campbell can fill a need?

They Iost it at the selection table but the loss didn't do his senior coaching desire any harm...l wonder how much input he had at the selection table?

In an ideal world we could just fusion dance Goldy and Campbell.

Big fortnight coming up
Now we're not really playing for finals I'm looking forward to it. Nothing to lose. Let's find out a bit about what Rhyce is really about. His team were ordinary yesterday, but good enough to stay in it, and then bad enough to balls it up. He was out-coached and I suspect his players didn't stick to plans. Senior players didn't step up. Younger players didn't show much. He'll start the next two games as clear underdogs and in enemy territory.

We wanted a coaching audition? We have a coaching audition.

IMO it's also clear we've hit a bit of a flat spot in terms of physicality. It's not something that you can just do every week.

If Rhyce is the man I want him to start setting standards now.

I'm interested to see how we move forward, especially in games that realistically don't mean a lot.

Yep. The physicality has been fantastic but went missing yesterday. Toughness is great, but need something else when it falls away for moments, quarters, games, weeks.
