I can vividly picture an exhausted Ted at the end of round 1 lamenting to his coach “ b b b b but he won’t stay still so I can punch him? Ted not like people who not stay still”Nah Kane just keeps dodging and running around the ring until Ted gets too tired and needs a sit down
Hinkley leaks TPP underspend to Kane right when he is under greatest pressure. Dorothy Dixer if I have every seen one.Nope. That was the question, plus Kane asking if Ken was wondering if getting that extra 700-800k player would have helped team performance. Not sure where that money comes from after paying Motlop and rockliff wasted money.
I'm sure he's got some fondness for the club having played 300 games for it, but he'd be loving the club being a bleak meme making machine of recent times. He doesn't have to try hard to get stories that are controversial. The worst result for him would be both SA clubs getting new coaches and becoming stable on and off field.I really do wonder how much Kane would love the Club if Ken and his brother were no longer employed.
That’s a relief. I saw him on On The Couch not long ago and he was slurping the ‘yOuNg TeAm’ koolaid.Roos is actually one of the few who has put the heat on Ken. Said again last night that we are the biggest underachievers in the league and that it's ridiculous that we've only played 1 final in 5 years.
He's been pretty consistently critical of us for some time. He also talks about how we change our game style every year which doesn't give the team a chance to grow and develop properly. He doesn't directly put it on Ken but it can only be taken that way.That’s a relief. I saw him on On The Couch not long ago and he was slurping the ‘yOuNg TeAm’ koolaid.
This from the Hamish Hartlett having a hell of a laugh walking towards his starting position moments before the bounce? The same Hamish Hartlett that then proceded to jog towards his first chance of getting the ball allowing Ziebell to totally embarrass us and him? And the same Hamish Hartlett who then played like a scared little school boy the rest of the game?Just heard HH on aa and sheesh the only conclusion I got was that the boys were ready to go but Nth Melb played different brilliant football.
I then said to myself, "we were out coached by a novice on L plates and trainer wheels.
Unfortunately this is what I’ve also heard.Just heard HH on aa and sheesh the only conclusion I got was that the boys were ready to go but Nth Melb played different brilliant football.
Maybe Ken can't bring himself to own a selection blunder or three and not throw players generically under the bus, out of fear of creating an "out" for every other time the players feel under the pump.Unfortunately this is what I’ve also heard.
That the team prepared for a North Melbourne that was the polar opposite of the studied gamefilm and scouting dossiers, and that the coaches were powerless to resist it given the era of limited runners.
Now, I’d like to find it hard to believe that our coaches and players could be that whamboozled by ‘IT TURNS OUT THEIR TALL PLAYERS ARE ACTUALLY QUITE A BIT BETTER THAN OURS!’ — Hinkley is coaching at the top of his game after all — but yeah. Here we are.
