As soon as they get back from Shanghai.

Kochie will give us plenty of notice.

Ken Hinkley:
160 Games, 88 Wins, 72 Losses, 0 Draws = 55.00% Winning Record

Best Year: 2014, 25 Games, 16 Wins, 9 Losses = 64.00%

Worst Year: 2016, 22 Games, 10 Wins, 12 Losses = 45.50%

Witch hunt, I blame the players and the support cast, purge the assistants worked at the Tigers.

Port are probably due for a change, put Ken has down well for what has been a reasonably average list over the course of his tenure.

Did well to finish where they did last year after losing two of their prime movers and prioritising inputting young players into that best 22.

The growth in guys like Houston and DBJ has also been impressive.

What if the coronavirus prevents them from traveling to China?

If they go

I hadn’t considered the global pandemic implications of sacking Ken Hinkley.

Kochie will say something stupid about results and flags on 5AA, Ken will react, they’ll both use the go to all purpose word of the AFL, “disappointed” a lot, there will be a crisis meeting and Ken will be doing special comments for a Sunday Fox game on the GC around late July.

The Fox C team he’ll be calling with will gush about his special insights having recently been a coach. They won’t be that special.

Port supporters sentiment to sack him would be 70%+. Happy clappers will always prevent being higher. Need a change. 1 loosing final in 5 seasons. Only Ken survives that under an inept Chairman and board who governs with hardcore wet lettuces...

He's a fraud, about time the broader AFL community realised it.

Right you are, a fraud he is.
But Ken knows the footy landscape well and recognised the opportunity a dill like Koch presented him with.
He will get the arse from PA soon enough but is savvy enough to keep his snout in the AFL trough for a long while to come ...

As soon as Port mathematically can not make finals Hinkley is gone.
