Absolute gronk of a human. Just because he had the psychopathic intensity to get to SAS level doesn't mean he's some sort of star.
Who gives a fu** if he is or isnt a star. He is elite. He sets and delivers elite results. You dont get into the holy trinity of the elite British Forces if you arent elite. Thats what we need, elite results delivered.

Purely for himself. Just because they can physically and mentally get themselves to that level doesn't mean they can facilitate that in others.

Nah, the SAS don't play well with anyone. You just have to look to the Brereton Report, and the associated witness intimidation, to see the problems. It may be necessary to give a bunch of sociopaths elite military training but doing so pretty much makes them unsuitable for basic human interaction. I wouldn't have any of them anywhere near an organisation I'm associated with.

Yeah, wouldn't want to make the marshmallows cry would we.

By all means though let's just keep doing what we've been doing for 17 years and hope that for some magical reason we'll start getting different results.

Or we could turn it into some kind of Crows/ collective minds scenario. What, do we just let them loose on the players?

Collective Minds are a bunch of self important whack jobs that come up with nonsense like the power stance.

The SAS guys are specialists trained in discipline and performing under the highest of pressure, way higher than anything you'll encounter on a football field.

There is a world of difference.

And maybe Warren could take up coaching where your held accountable for the decisions you make.

Not defending Bassett but it’s a lot easier to throw suggestions over the fence (as they are quickly forgotten) than implement them and be held accountable if they don’t work.

To be honest this post is probably aimed more at Kane than it is warren, but so be it. (I shudder at the thought of Kane ever being an assistant)
Lol this is Port Adelaide - when has the bolded been true in the last 9 years
