You've actually spun what is terrible about Hird into a positive somehow.Maybe my morals arent what they should be but I would take Hird in an assistant role and be ******* excited about it.
We dont know the full story behind the whole drugs saga and never will. I like to give people 2nd chances and I think Hird got everything he deserved and more and should get a second chance at it, albeit never in a senior coaching role.
He was a terrific role model on the field and I'm 99% sure he would avoid anything close to what Essendon were doing like the plague after what he went through.
Would be stoked to bring him in as an assistant
