The Pyke departure looks interesting. No doubt his time up at Adelaide. After entering the 2017 Grand Final as red hot favorites. And then the last 2 seasons.Gold Coast mind altering thing.
What I find interesting is Sumich was suppose to join Pyke at Adelaide next year.Are they joining forces to have a crack at the Freo job.????

Yes, come to think of it, it is very suss. I doubt he is being brave, he just knows the Crows job isn’t for him and there are greener pastures back in Perth already in the pipeline. Hardly brave, hey, but it wouldn’t be a Crows headline without that word in there somewhere.

Just going on the Crows history.Even when Gary Ayres coached good Crows teams It's tough being a Crows coach if your not a South Aussie.

Maybe.

The one thing I do know is that whether Hinkley stays or goes, the coach that replaces him won't have to radically overhaul the entire playing list and try to get them playing a style that they aren't suited to just to compete against the top teams.

I rate Bassett for his forward pressure coaching. It's the other side of the ball, which is Chad Cornes' department, that I don't rate. I think we should get rid of him.
So when Hinkley spuds it up next year, we sack him and his replacement leads us to glory, it's really all due to Ken?

OK.

Pyke hasnt been pushed out because of his coaching ability. The camp has cost him his job as its permantly damaged alot of the playing group. When the truth finally comes out what actually happened with it people will even be more shocked than what they have been.pyke is a good coach who got a mid table talented list to a granny. Even if the camp wasnt his call he let it happen. But others just as responsible are still there. The next crows coach probably wont be as good as pyke. The crows will be mid table for a few more years yet.

Quite a few more I think. Their list is in massive trouble that cannot be quickly turned around

I was lead to believe the camp had nothing to do with Don Pyke. At least not until he failed to fire in 2018 or 19.

Of course this'll be the excuse wheeled out across the next couple of days, though.

Are Burton and Hinkley possibly related?
