    Some more food for thought, if Maxwell hadn't been there maybe instead on infighting it would have been all out war.
    Who knows with these things.
    One thing is for sure. If we do well next year we will all be clapping the club for getting its act together.
    If we do poorly with the exception of Saintly Viewed we will all be baying for blood. I may even fly back to Aus and burn down the Holden Center

    Yeah to be fair it was his job to make Heater a good leader (that being heater in their leadership group) and tell him to stfu at the right moments, if it is true as you guess that it was the other way around then I don't have confidence in Maxy to tell bucks to stfu when required and our leadership won't improve because our leaders will do as they please instead of listen to good advice. Look Maxy is an undisputed and highly regarded leader but it hinges on whether or not certain leaders will take on board the advice that Maxy gives and it is obvious the club has appointed him for that reason - time will tell

    if we do well next year then that would indicate that the role Maxy is appointed for is working and Ed and bucks are behaving, if we don't and we continue to see poor off field decisions then we know Maxy did not have the desired impact

    Maxwell's role has nothing to do with off field decisions.

    Onfield backline coach, I'm liking this move more and more.

    More like our seventh defender the way Maxwell relays instructions.

    I reckon the moves this off season have been mostly positive so far.
    I was wrong about getting Walsh back when we did, very good operator.
    Hoping it translates to the footy field

    What I meant by that is if he has enough "influence" so we don't make stupid decisions like recruiting mayne for example then you could say he's mentoring the leaders well - on and off the field. Hopefully that's what the club has appointed him for otherwise the impact he brings won't be as great as it should.

    Is anyone else over the Mayne referencing in pretty much every thread?

    It does my head in.

    Agree.
    Having said that I am sure I will reference him again some time in the future.
    I'm a hypocrite.

    By the way CFC2010. Don't take this the wrong way but that is the most piss poor effort at a rant I have ever seen.
    2 sentences. Laziest rant in history.

    I don't think that maxy will have any say on who we recruit, not his job

    I know that's not his role but I'd sure he'd have an idea about such decisions and the "leaders" who would think about such decisions should listen to Maxy's thoughts - or be mentored if you like

    Not having a go at you Carringbush2010 in particular but it annoys me that Mayne is the poster boy for us being shit this year on this board.
