The odds of co-captains surviving past 2019 were always slim.
It will 100% happen because it’s the only thing they can do to appease supporters. They arent getting rid of the coach, they aren’t getting rid of themselves, and they haven’t made any progress with the prison bars.

Clearly it's going to be one year because of its unpopularity. You don't really think they planned it that way?
No I don't think it was planned for one year.

The unpopularity was pretty clear before the club announced it but KT and Hinkley knew better so they went with it anyway. If they were so convinced it was the correct call why drop it after only one season? Where is the courage of their convictions?

If KT drops co-captains after just one season he is admitting it was a monumental feck up. It makes his attempt to soften up the members at the convention for the pending announcement of co-captains look even more pathetic.

Can't win either way.

At least it's a step in the right direction to go back to traditional one captain.

You appear to have completely missed my point. :)
No I haven’t missed the point.
In my mind the decision was made, they stuffed up big time by going against tradition, it can’t be undone.

You obviously are aggrieved about it, as are many.

So does it matter to you now either way going forward, single or co captains or do you feel the horse has bolted so it doesn’t matter any more?

I am curious

I'm not sure I can make my position any clearer.

Not really
If you've read and understood my posts on the subject you should have realised that I am vehemently opposed to co-captains. Why would I want the abomination that is co-captains to continue under any circumstances? So you either don't understand what has been made very, very clear or you think I have completely lost my mind.

As I posted previously, I don't think I can make it any clearer and I am wondering if you are just taking the piss.

Good. It was a monumental feck up. Better they admit it and cut their losses now rather than stubbornly persist.

Surely Jonas was just appointed cause of Ollie's unfortunate pre season...and it's Wines long term..

But we have a history of monumentally ******* up that decision...
