    Because they will lead the club, not just the 22? That seems to be the obvious answer to your question.

    I started this thread because I was really pleased that Sloane was finally appointed vice captain. Many here believed he should have been captain. Anyway all I have read since is about Thommo. Rather than focusing on the positive of Sloane and Eddie everyone is up in arms about Thommo.

    Come on guys get positive.

    Do other clubs have players in their leadership group that will play mostly reserves?

    Yeah it's getting harder and harder to read each thread on this board. Too much focus on the negative of each announcement, rather than the positive like you say. No congratulating Eddie and the Chief (or very little) instead, it's the same posters banging on about Thommo.

    Doesn't matter what the title of the thread is, you can guarantee that the content will be about 1 of the following:

    Our shit midfield
    Thommo being too old
    Brad Crouch not being up to it
    Our logo/guernsey colours being shit
    Mackay and his contract

    And that's about it. I get that these are issues, but does every thread need to be influenced by all of the shit stuff? May be time to take some time away from this board. Sad. First time i've felt like this in my near on 12 years here.

    But on topic, i thought Sloane was VC last year?

    It's the off-season and we get 3 open training sessions to discuss. Nothing has changed since we pulled up stumps on season 2016. So it's natural that views haven't changed and carry forward to this point. We're just finding ways to argue amongst ourselves, check out the chat with Fages thread. If you're going to take a break, you should have done that during December and January. Footy's nearly back, don't leave now.

    I think our group is a good mix of age and experience.
    Not too many scenarios I can think of that Thompson would not have had to deal with already - Tex a born leader and Rory a great team mate.
    Inclusion of Betts also good for the indigenous players and Lynch - well he should be in it for this alone !

    Port with Lobbe for starters.

    Who cares if Thommo is deemed a good leader.

    I wanted to vent my frustration on Thommo so sent an email to Fages and Pykey. Not expecting a response but got one from Fages

    Without referencing any individual, it is well recognised internally that all members of the leadership group play an important role on and off the field. VB was a good example last year – he was outstanding whether he was playing AFL, SANFL or not playing at all. We expect Thommo to do the same, as we do of all the leaders. Being a member of the leadership group does not guarantee AFL selection – form of course is the primary determinant.

    Seems to me that Tex, Sloaney and Talia are the permanant leaders and the other guys are rotated each year to get leadership experience.

    Lever will be in the leadership group next year I reckon.

    Call me old fashioned, but to me there just needs to be a captain and a vice-captain. Serious question: could someone explain why clubs have a large leadership group?

    Apart from the PR, I think it is part of player education and training courses in leadership that has lead to these large groups.

    Eddie spoke a bit about how he has learnt to be a voice at the club in his time here. I would suggest as part of player development players have access to leadership courses and part of that is on the job training in being a leader in an organisation.

    FFS give it a rest. Thommo will play however many games he plays. Stop whinging.

    Yeah Spackler. Stop worrying about premierships. Not what we're here for.

    Nobody in AFL club land could explain it to you without having one hand on their penor.

    The important thing is they got the captain and vice-captain right, which, at Adelaide, isn't always the no-brainer it should be.

    Is it actually a good thing for the team that Thompson is so admired and looked up to? Is there not a risk of players going into their shells when Thommo is around, especially in the centre square? Balance in a team isn't just about level of ability and spread of roles.

    We're still in the 'altitude training in Colorado' phase of leadership model...haven't pro/regressed to running laps in the Australian summer (i.e. C & VC) mode just yet...
