Inevitable he was gone, just a matter of working out the details.Don Pyke gaaaawn.
Interesting to see if the club lays all the blame at Pyke's feet and sweeps the rest under the carpet.
It's like watching Carlton from 5-10 years ago. An old boys club that thinks it has all the answers.
Shame we didn't swap 2020 picks....
I'm thinking that's exactly what could happen.Pyke sacked.
Mass potential exodus confirmed legit now. Rumours were real. No other reason to sack him with that much $ owing.
Let's hope some of those players don't change their mind now that Pyke is gone.
Wasn't early enough. Even Adelaide's media release says they've been discussing it for 2 entire weeks! They should have been in the ear of key players wanting out as they've now had their managers enquiring with clubs during this time.I'm thinking that's exactly what could happen.
I'd say Adelaide went early on Pyke to stop the mass exodus. Pending identity of the new coach I can see a few rumoured players changing their minds.
Made a scapegoat imo so that Roo and his boys club can largely remain intact.
Just like Bolton hey!Made a scapegoat imo so that Roo and his boys club can largely remain intact.
How can you expect him to thrive in such an oppressive environment? Crows board allude to him not even getting to really choose his own assistants like Camporeale and Hart.
Despite that he took them to a GF and according to the article, has a very healthy win % of over 60%.
He should have stayed, with some of the assistants plus Burton & Roo cleaned out.
Doubt it would even help that, maybe make it worse.Coach always cops it in the neck for other departments making poor decisions
If they think this will gloss over the cracks from the back office, the are doomed to be a mid to lower table side
Only area that it may help short term is player retention, but that still depends on who get the gig
Aged like milk.Keep up the wishful thinking of a top 10 pick while handing over pick 1. We will enjoy 19 as well.
Carlton, Saints, Dogs, GC, Melbourne, Essendon and Power, 7 of the bottom 9 teams to come.
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story or your fantasies.
Elijah Taylor. Would be a very nice pickup.I think it might be the other way round
Future 1st for Martin + 15. Take Elijah Taylor if he is still on the board. Or might be used in another trade, Zac Williams would be my target
Pick 8 for Papley + a shuffle of later picks
Gray for a scuffle of 4th rounders
Cameron for a token pick or part of Papley deal
Plus a FA, Tomlinson would do just fine
