DN: I had a good chat to Jaidyn Stephenson, and I do see him in a midfield/wing role. I really like what he has to offer.

I have a feeling he's going to drag someone out of Brisbane in the next 2 or so years.

He seems like the type to have forged some pretty strong relationships.

Charlie Cameron followed him to Brisbane from memory?

I like that the door is open for Shaw to come back.

Although I think it would be difficult for him. As nice and friendly as Noble appears to be......at the end of the day that guy now has your job.

I feel for Shaw.....must be tough.

I set time aside to watch this today. Did not think I’d have to turn SEN on for the first few minutes then follow the rest tweet by tweet. Surely we could do better to maximise the enthusiasm supporters have for this appointment?
This is the same club that got cheap with fixture fridge magnets.

BA: Paul Roos is going to have a role going forward, and he will have an input in a lot of different areas.
was kinda hoping that wouldn't be the case... if not for anything else but the Roos/Roos headlines. Hopefully he will be very much background role.

DN: We have two coaching positions left. We are drawing a list up. We want to bring in some great experience and character.
Had a look on the website and all we have is development coaches listed, heck shaw is still on there.
Any idea of who've we still have on the list?
Missing defense, mid and forward coaches to my knowledge plus a couple more.

Midfield and forward line coaches are the two he is still after.

Agree but tricky given it was held over Zoom.

All the tweets:

BB: We are delighted and excited to have someone of David's experience and ability. We were extremely impressed during the interview process with David's knowledge of the game and his ability to articulate the culture he wants to create at North Melbourne.

DN: I'm delighted to be the 38th coach of the North Melbourne Football Club. I would like to thank my family who have been an enormous support for me. I would also like to thank every organisation that I have worked at to get to this opportunity.

DN: I believe the North Melbourne Football Club's authenticity and value set will fit me perfectly.

DN: To our fans, members and sponsors. I'm bloody excited. I can't wait to play in front of you, and for you to be excited to watch us play. There will be frustrations, but I believe there is great pride in watching people and players grow.

DN: I've already been in contact with a number of players over the weekend, and I've been very impressed with their energy and demeanour.

DN: The dynamic of the role of a coach has changed in the last five years, and I've seen that first hand. I've always harboured ambitions to coach, but I though that opportunity had passed. Life is about taking opportunities, and this is one I couldn't pass up.

DN: Watching from a distance, I thought they were a club making some tough calls, but they were a group that knew the direction they wanted to take.

DN: We've got to set a path for long-term success. We've got some young talent, and we are going to the draft this year. I think the list is in good shape, I really do.

DN: I've reached out to Rhyce (Shaw) in a private conversation. I'd like to leave it at that.

DN: It's been a fascinating journey for me. I can't wait to get back into the coaching chair. I want to make sure that the fellow coaches are delegated authority, and that the relationship with players is really strong.

DN: The stick of our members this year was phenomenal. We want people to be excited and jump back on board.

DN: I don't think it will take me too long to move back into the coaching cycle. I'm really looking forward to it.

DN: Chris Fagan was a fantastic support for me. I spoke to him about the opportunity and he said with a big smile, "You absolutely have to go for it." We've coached against each other at many different levels, and now it will be at AFL level.

DN: We have two coaching positions left. We are drawing a list up. We want to bring in some great experience and character.

DN: I had a good chat to Jaidyn Stephenson, and I do see him in a midfield/wing role. I really like what he has to offer.

BB: Every club wants to win a premiership. Time frames are hard to nail down, and we know we aren't going to get there immediately. But I don't think we should apologise for being ambitious.

BA: Paul Roos is going to have a role going forward, and he will have an input in a lot of different areas.

BR: I don't see my role changing at all with David's appointment. I'm looking to lean on David, as he's been in this seat for a number of years, but my job is to make sure he has the resources to be the best senior coach he can be.

DN: I want to kick goals, I want to score. But I want to have a hard edge, and have a defence that will stand up in finals.

Think Cameron or his partner wanted to live in QLD. Noble also moving was more coincidence.
