    True this. Assistant coaching role at Coburg. Was too good to turn down, he also has family in Victoria. I believe he has a couple of years leave at PBC high so can return if he wishes.

    Palmy will advertise for a coach. Guess Ablett and all Chads other mates on here will find out next season just how valuable or not he was to Palmy.

    Being a palmy person he will sorely missed. Has done some great things in his 5 years there, and that’s not talking about the 2 flags. He is superb with the young kids down there

    Good luck to Chad, big decision to make, so hope it works out. Jack Crowley was the the real coach i was hearing from good people down that way, any chance he will take the main job now?

    Probably a bit of an exaggeration but no doubt every senior coach needs great people around them these days.

    And jack Crowley obviously has loads of experience and knows his footy. Whether he would want the gig not sure, may be better to be a mentor to a younger coach. I’m sure they’ll get plenty of interest if they advertise

    Good luck to Chad good on him for having a go.

    Reckon any good coach knows u surround yourself with smart people. Happens at top level too. Alistair Clarkson does it, hardwick does it, not sure y it’s any surprise that a guy at qafl level wouldnt do it

    Crowley is a good coach. He was made a scapegoat at Southport. As for Owens. He must be pretty good after taking palmy to 2 flags in a row and a grand final after missing the finals in 2015

    Yes unfortunately I believe that is the case. Still an "A" grade coaching staff.

    Mark Neeld could’ve coached Palm Beaches last 2 Flags.
    Good coaches don’t need an open cheque book to achieve success, the last 4 premiership clubs achieved this by spending the most on recruits , not from having the best coaches.
    Fact is Perry Meka and Owens would not be premiership coaches with out the high spending budget they had to attract recruits, not saying they are/were dud coaches but $$$$$$ was a big factor

    Ablett, agreed there is a difference between a great coach and great manager/recruiter but it seems the latter that has been getting the silverware lately. If you've got $$$ then you've got the advantage. My hawks hopefully are going to buck that trend by developing within...watch this space

    Yo
    You still have to go out on the park to win the grand final. They aren’t handed to you because you spent money

    And I reckon they would have more juniors in their senior side than most other clubs in the QAFL

    Why can’t any other club attract players and spend big dollars?

    Not all clubs have pokies or sports club but other than that they have the same opportunities to raise revenue

    Depends on where and from whom you are prepared to accept revenue from....

    Would think Sandgate and the Magpies lead the way in terms of how many genuine club juniors are in their senior sides.
