It doesn't I never said it did he swooped in while we bathed in it.So how does our 2004 mission accomplished atmosphere have anything to do with Clarkson?
Russell etc were all out of contract and were gone anyway.
Carn he got us Charlie Dixon from his last job and ........I don't hate Clarkson for that. I hate us for letting him do it.
All he's doing is exactly what we'd want our senior coach to be doing in the same circumstance. Instead we're stuck with Mr. Somebody's Gotta Lose.
Boak needs to get a hobby like wakeboarding so he's got something better to do in the off season than trying to be the best he can possibly be.Random comment coming in but Boak going on those US fitness trips and Gray spending lots of time and being involved with the list management in the offseason, there's a reason why those two are our clear standouts at this club for years now.
Can never question those two when it comes to bleeding for this club.
That's why I laugh at Blight, Rooch and others who say give Ken a go, look what Bomba (yes that was his nickname before he got to Essendon) did in his 8th year at Geelong, why can't Ken do that in his 8th year?Kenny could've at least brought with him the drugs Geelong were on.
I just want someone who understands Port Adelaide and fully buys in to the uncompromising drive for success that has atrophied in recent years and that we need to get back. No more mealy-mouthed, excuse-mongering duds intent on dumbing the club down to justify their failure.
Boak was pick 6, he's hardly a Matt Thomas Tom Logan type.Robbie is a special talent but Boak is the best example ever of 'it's not about your talent, it's about what you do with it'. There would be literally dozens of guys who have floated on and off our list over the years with Boak's talent or better who don't make anything of themselves simply because they don't want it as badly as he does.
He's an underrated mature talent spotter, the established players us then hawks brought in were vital to the flags. Not sure how nobody has made that a specialised role for him somewhere.Chris Pelchen probably had as much to do with the early resurgence of the squawkers as Clarko, but he had his lunch cut at the Power by that absolute failure of a ceo in John James, so I guess he just returned the favour.
