Yeah the Saints have hugely overpaid him over the years and he thought that he'd be just as in demand at that price.Presumably in part driven by salary demands. If he was after a contact the reflected his on field displays he would have interest but I suspect he’s chasing Jared Polec type money.
Wouldn’t be surprised if he loses his current job too. Definitely a shake up coming at Port, and if Ken stays then there will be assistants losing their positions.Bad week for Michael Voss, with Port being utterly dissected when it mattered, and now he has been joined as a 5 times Lions b&f winner by Dayne fricken Zorko.
Will depend a bit on whether Dusty recovers. Losing 10kg from illness is not easy for a power athlete to recover from. Bit of a gap forming in age profile too. A lot of 30+ guns slowly building up ( not to Geelongs extent) and a lot of younger. Not a lot in between. Will be interesting. And I hope Martin recovers. He’s not in a great state at the moment.I think that’s Richmonds period of dominance over. They aren’t top 4 anymore. They had a good run though.
All jokes aside will be a gun coach.
I always thought it was a bit over the top. Anyone who even came close to watching Gia work would understand how great a coach he is.The idea that he is in line for a senior coaching appointment makes a mockery of those that loudly questioned his coaching credentials when he was with the dogs.
A lot of the discussion was clearly carried over from the perception that he wasn't hard enough at it for some people liking during his playing days.I always thought it was a bit over the top. Anyone who even came close to watching Gia work would understand how great a coach he is.
Some on here just didn’t like him as a player a therefore assumed he can’t coach. Clearly he can and there would be a good chance he’ll end up back here one day.The idea that he is in line for a senior coaching appointment makes a mockery of those that loudly questioned his coaching credentials when he was with the dogs.
Difference is I'm happy to admit when I'm wrong or at least have the discussion. Many will just dig in or make an unhelpful throw away comment like "Everyone has opinions" that adds stuff all to the discussion.Everyone has opinions. Your take on Bonts leadership raised my eyebrows for example.
I think that would be a fair assessment of all the coaches turfed out of that place. You would think eventually people will wise up to the fact that the problem goes alot deeper then the coach. Nothing like a good scape goat though.Still sad about poor Teague. Guy would've been better with a better system around him.
