    I don't know Dave but it is a very In-Collingwood like article actually praising us for identifying our deficiencies and making some changes.

    I'm liking our changes so far and more to come.

    I don't know what to make about the Changes at the Moment. Have to see IF the Changes work or Not

    You do realise that the part of his bio you keep quoting is from his current employer's website and not from the club?

    This is what the club said:

    “Ned, through his 11 years in player management, holds a really strong understanding of the system, particularly in the areas of talent identification, management and the relationships required around that,” Walsh said."

    It's subtly different in that Walsh says he understands the "systems" around talent identification etc and goes on to talk about his relationship with Derek and their ability to work together.

    I think that gives a better idea of what the club, or Walsh at least who is his boss, thinks his role is.

    Richmond Collingwood I have been corrected

    I stand corrected.

    Writes in a smart Alec way, for what it's worth (which is not much ).

    Do you have a more intimate knowledge of Ned than the rest of us ? Fairly significant leap to make "statements of fact" rather than just your opinion.

    Here. Where are you?
    PieBeast I think it's fair to say we're all frustrated.
    Doesn't mean you should come on hear and bag people out for a different opinion.
    No amount of bleating at each on here it will change a thing.
    If in 12 months time it's turned to poo, you will be proven right.
    If not, the rest will be right.
    I don't trust Ed, I do however have faith in Walshy and I believe, (hope) he's making the right decisions.
    Time will tell.

    The ability to build and nurture relationships within the industry is incredibly underrated on this site.

    I just went through that.

    I think he means Jeff Kennett.

    Hawthorn it's all going weirdly different over there. Love it!

    I didn't but it doesn't change my stance one bit.
    And neither does the actual vague statement from the Club.

    The primary role of the list manager of an AFL club has always been about building a strong list capable of winning a premiership and I don't see any credentials for that.

    No matter how many times they'll tells us how good he is at talent identification for some reason or mention that Decca dealt with him at the trade table, it's all either cringe-worthy or very tenuous at best.

    I'm sick to death of being proven right.

    And you might want to check who gave a different opinion and who started bagging people for it.
