Since there’s currently three coaching jobs available next year, that’s three of the best coaches on the market that will be snapped up, so this club will worry that we won’t get any of the best options available and will likely back him in for another year.

Next year, he’ll get the flick though. 2020 will be just like 2010.
So we let the three best prospects get snapped up and then next year we're left with the options of....?

Schofield and Montgomery would have walked out if Ken is still here too.

Saw this thread pop up and got excited.

Skimmed the first few posts. Nothing confirmed Ken's sacking. Frustrating! So I went straight to Google and Port's social media. Nothing. Not a thing. Nada.

* deep disappointed sigh *

What a tease. A big f@%king tease. Biggest tease since Holly Hotstuff (not her real name) in year 12.

Holly was the arguably the hottest girl at our high school, universally top three. None of us had a chance, tho. She had a thing for African-Americans and would hit up Club America at Ambassador’s every weekend.

Years later, when I came home for my dying Dad's last days in 2004*, I bumped into her at a local pub where my fam was getting sh!t-faced as all Irish fams do in these situations (any situation, really.)

Holly was still hot but... had lived rough since high school. My dopey big brother was keen. So I did what any little brother would do. I cock-blocked him for sh!ts 'n' giggles.

Anyway, I end up going to this crazy party with Holly and a bunch of randoms. This joint was Rough. As. Guts. It was on edge. Felt like someone was gonna bet bashed/raped/murdered at any time. Pretty sure I was the only one there who hadn't done time in Yatala.

Also, it became clear that Holly was gonna bonk my brains out.

Now, I tried to visualise 1992 Holly but kept getting snapped back to grim reality assorted ferals, roughnecks, drug dealers, repeat violent offenders and garden variety recidivist pieces of sh!t at this party.

Then the bikies rocked up.
And Holly called me into the kitchen.
Where she was shooting up smack.
Sharing a dirty syringe.
With some random.

"Want some?" She offered me the needle. "It's good sh!t."

After politely declining her AIDS invitation, I backed out of the kitchen, all the way to the front door, hurried down the driveway, crossed the street and got the f@%k out of Dodge.

tl;dr - after seven years, Ken is Holly, basically.






*Dad legit died after our round 22 win against the Crows, as if he was hanging on just to see us beat those campaigners one last time, lol.

At least in those days the club sounded being a big club.




If it is the comment made on page 2 of this thread ... yeah I read it ... and I am deflecting that glimmer of hope as a coping mechanism for bad (or no) news.
I am hoping he knows a little more than he's letting on. ;)

There's no way the club have the balls to sack him and appoint one of the new assistants, no way at all.

Sod the coaching merry go round, give Monty and Schofield a go!

When a club that’s an even bigger mediocrity hub since 2004 than us consistently owns us, home or away, with the only wins under Hinkley coming when they were directly impacted by the WADA thing.

Amazing.
Even that game was hard work. Other teams had pummeled them, but we bumbled our way to one of our many uninspiring home wins.
