    I know that a lot of people love to pot the Boss, and he has idiosyncrasies that probably rub people the wrong way, but you can't watch that On the Couch interview and not be grateful that we have someone like him at the helm. He's a really clear communicator, he is likely good at simplifying things and setting clear targets, and has an aura that demands respect and belief. He has his shortcomings as a coach, but I cannot imagine that there are many qualified for a head coaching job that would be capable of filling his shoes - at least right now - that would be a significant upgrade. We're lucky to have him.

    Suban reads Bigfooty Meima. And he doesn't like bad grammar.

    Loved hearing RTB talk about Mother's Day. Reckons he gets his kids to take care of it inciting "give effort and know your role". Was on Nova I think.

    Don't think he made that up. Didn't help the Saints the first two times we played them under Ross so I doubt it's been a factor in their wins.

    So, just came across a shorter clip of the post match presser, and RTB says all this weird shit that I missed cos it was cut from the club Q&A transcript.
    Apart from the litmus thing, which was also odd, when he was asked about Crozier he says:
    "Yeah, look I haven't driven into individual stats, I think there were some good performances, I remember some specific moments like if you look at, you know in the game, the St Kilda game, I think it was Newnes and Mills, there was those sort of things, and I think there was Aish and whoever it was, and I thought Brady Grey was in a big 50/50 ball and I thought Walters' chase down..."
    The St Kilda game? WTF is he talking about?

    He's basically explaining 1%ers his way.

    Right, thanks, well that's pretty random. Seems he's heading down the Sheedy/Bomber rabbit-hole.

    He was referencing the two large clashes when Newnes and Mills (in StK vs Sydney), and Aish and a Hawthorn player (in Collingwood vs Hawthorn), both went hard for a 50/50 ball at risk to personal safety. Newnes ended up concussed, and Aish got a broken jaw. But they were inspiring acts and the commentators lauded the courage of both players in both incidents. Both happened last weekend in the same round as the Freo/Carlton game, so those incidents were obviously in Ross's mind as examples of hardness and 1%ers that make the difference.

    Not really random, just referencing recent events. I guess it wouldn't make sense if you didn't watch those games.

    Those comments in a response to a question about Crozier's 3 goals reminds me of Mayne saying he'd rather have 10 tackles than 10 goals. Very Ross.
    I like his desire to highlight process over "superficial" results (like goals!) but he does frequently tie himself up in knots to avoid agreeing with any praise of his players from the media.

    Probably the stupidest thing ever said by a footballer in an interview and that's a pretty tough field to beat.
