We couldn't fire everyone I suppose. It was already a massive overhaul. My bigger worry is Whitecross as an assistant - hopefully he's ready.
Na I’m genuinely surprised Loader survived considering who we let go

Must be doing something right other than winning

Not thrilled about Whitecross being forwards coach and Moore as stoppages.

Would’ve liked an experienced senior coach over Whitecross and someone with a bit more tactical noise than Moore.

Hopefully both Rawlings will have a bit of sway in those areas too.

He should be locked in a room with a bright lamp in his face and grilled about Hawthorn's development system. :stern look
We looked for talented players trapped in shit development systems like we did with Gibson and Hale from Nort.. oh anyway yeh you get the point.

Heard a snippet on SEN today of Wallet being asked about Jade Rawlings - said his footy knowledge is great, but the best thing about him is that he is a joy to be around. No problem delivering tough messages to players, but someone everyone likes, who is - Wallet might have said “effervescent” - very positive and fun.

Maybe he got scared by a small bird and yelled "Eff! A pheasant!"

Didn't we have a bloke come across from Champion Data or Supercoach or something? Has he departed already?

Yo, gr (or anyone else).

Am I right in saying that Nick Byrne was also doubling as 'VFL List Manager'?

Top bloke is Nick. Knows his footy, too.
