Little bit of angst on Twitter over the appointment, as GC let go of two highly regarded development coaches last season “due to Covid cuts”, only to now appoint someone new to the role.

Didn't know that, pretty understandable. Good for him anyway

Probably another ‘AFL’ appointment.
I would suggest that is likely to be the case. Also probably a situation where the AFL are likely paying him anyway given the nature of his resignation from North and it might actually not be costing them anything. That is the wage might just offset the disability payment the AFL would be paying anyway.

FWIW I think it is an excellent get for the GC. Shaw is a good relationship builder and should do well in a development role without a huge amount of pressure.

Looks to me likes he's a good fit with Dew as well who, despite appearances, doesn't come across as a "cuddly" type of coach.

My thoughts exactly!

Hardwick in a relationship with younger Richmond staff member. All kinds of rumours flying around as you can imagine. One being that she is pregnant. Mrs Hardwick and daughters spent Christmas Day with the Cotchins.

The rumour of Hardwick splitting from his wife and now seeing a young Richmond Tigers seems to be true.

Added to a story that Mrs Hardwick and the kids were at the Cotchins for Xmas is suggesting its trouble internally

Another year and another case of the AFL just keep on giving to the Gold Coast. :rolleyes:
Good for Rhyce though, is my point, left the north role in lousy circumstances when people have been really tested, especially you guys in Vic, and clearly him. how the afl are managing the paying of so many north coaches might have some influence although i don't care to attempt to guess the machinations if any. If they lost so much of their development team I don't really see it as them being gifted by the afl

The AFL gave us Noble and Fagan, so this is hardly anything for a Lions supporter to complain about.
On the back of countless concessions that we didn't come close to or the NT region, plus being able to pre-list players without bidding etc., not to mention Mark Evans or Jon Haines etc etc...yep, they were pretty similar concessions afforded to the Lions. :rolleyes:

Obviously we weren’t as big a basket case.

Also, has has been mentioned before, we also were given Swann by the AFL.

We've turned the corner in under four years. From wooden spoon to finals, to a preliminary final.

I'd say we've been handed sufficient assistance.

Time will tell if the Suns have.

If the word around the footy industry is accurate, I’m not sure Jon Haines has been a gift anybody would want to get. Without even knowing how well Danny Daly will do, I’d still take him every day over Haines.

What a sleezebag.......and I liked him too. Not now. Seems to be a habit with him going by those articles in papers. You would have to think his career is in jeapody after this.
