No one at Port is actually expected to be good, just to compete hard, however that doesn't explain some of the deals we've done. One would assume there would be a modicum of expectation of execution, ie, Dixon. We didn't pay the price for an honest competitor.

I don't know how Ken expects us to win when he doesn't care if any of the players actually have good skills and efficiency and stuff.

Are we so focused on coaching a team-oriented (shitty) gameplan that we neglect individual skills coaching on a personalised basis?

Choco cops a lot of stick about a lot of things, most are deserved, but he was big on improving kicking and worked with payers individually as well as encouraged them to do extra work.

He went and designed his bloody precision footy and got Sherrin to back him to improve everyone's kicking when he was at Richmond.

It would be useful if we had a few players and development coaches prepared to make as big a commitment to improving kicking as Choco used to at Ports.
