Chris Fagan, Danny Daly, Dale Tapping, Murray Davis, Jed Adcock, Ben HudsonYou’d think after defending the club for this long and being wrong every single time that you would have learned to pull your head in by now.
A senior assistant is about injecting some experience. Entirely appropriate given how green the coaching group is. On paper it looks bog average. A far cry from the best in the land we were promised.
And they’ve had Blake Caracalla and Justin Leppitsch as assistants for the last three years.And a 2 time premiership coach
No I don't.So you see my point then.
You used Brisbane as an example which was silly. Fagan gives the group credibility, he has experience and premiership experience. He should make the others better.No I don't.
What something looks like on paper means fu** all in the end of the day.
I'll do my judging on what I see from the AFC on field in 2020 before I pass judgement, Nicks is in the driver's seat so he will sink or swim by his actions, if he sees the way ahead as giving his assistants more involvement while he settles in to his role I'm happy enough to go along with it......for now.
The review wasn't a sham (well its probably too early to call it a sham yet).This is what we meant by sham review. They didn't want the review. They held it far too late. And they were shocked that it found what we all knew and actually had to go looking for replacements when there was nothing left on the shelf.
Typical Chapman Crows.
Even down to the spin.
Nicks will be Sando minus Bailey. We couldn't find a decent senior assistant. We can't find a footy ops manager with a track record of success.The review wasn't a sham (well its probably too early to call it a sham yet).
The sky isn't falling in. Has preseason training even started?
Clearly there's a lot of things about the club that suck at the moment .. but seriously, preseason training hasn't even started.Nicks will be Sando minus Bailey. We couldn't find a decent senior assistant. We can't find a footy ops manager with a track record of success.
We have a rookie coach and a SANFL bargain basement of assistants plus Ben no one wants Hart.
Far cry from the best football program in the land we were promised.
We just have to accept we're a bit shit with no plan and low prospects for improvement. Currently nestled in amongst the St Kildas and Norths of the world. Last relevant last century.
Because that’s how we roll.It's a good result. Obviously everyone was contracted and we would have ended up with dregs. Could have possibly promoted Clarke and put a SANFL coach on until we sorted it out, but I can't see it hurting us long-term. At least it gives us a year to work on attracting a high quality senior assistant.
Why announce it like it was our first choice not to have one though? Pretty dumb.
“Opted”Nicksy has opted to go without one.
Like honestly if a plan sprang up and slapped us about the face we wouldn't know what it was.I don't see how anyone can dispute that we don't have a clear plan or strategy for the future; it has been obvious for a long time, and there are constant demonstrations of it.
