Credit where it's due, anyone that coaches us to 2 flags is alright in my book.

Although I hope Simmo overtakes him, love that man.

Malthouse is a legend.

The Cook/Nisbett/Malthouse/Worsfold leadership group in the 90s was a dream team that I'm not sure has ever been matched by the club.

Please explain?
5 drafts straight of garbage picks post 94. Knifed the club in the back, who had backed him and his shit recruits in, and weasled out with a year to run on his contract to Collingwood for "family reasons" (*cough* bullshit.)
That's why no one went to see you off at the airport, Mick. Average coach and human being.

A bit harsh perhaps but maybe you have a point. After reading through this thread from a while ago I can see where you are coming from.

Nobody knifed anybody. His time out west had run its course and it was amicable between all parties. He gave 10 years of great service and made the club what it is today, and steered us through arguably our greatest era and greatest ever achievement.

In regards to bad drafting Mick wasn't the in charge of picking players in the draft. After our flags we drafted: Gardiner, Cousins, Wirra, Ph Matera, Glass, Fletcher, Read, Morrison, Jones , Braun & Gherig. 6 of those played in the 06 GF and the rest were given a lot of game time in that back half of Micks career. When he left we had two terrible years in 2000 and 2001 but we bounced back quickly.

Yeah I don't understand any criticism of drafting in the 90s. Look at the players picked by other clubs, back then it was still very much almost an amateur exercise. In the infamous 1997 draft where we picked up Jaxon Crabb with our first pick at 12, the subsequent picks were Callum Chambers (very much serviceable at best), Shannon Watt (ditto), Joel McKay (who?) and Ben Wolton (even more who???).
