This is always the problem with the combination of Ken and our spineless board/CEO/President. He's got a team with enough talent and reasonable enough coaches around him to not finish bottom 4 and have the Facebook fans also baying for his blood. The Hinkley zone (7-12) gets us close enough that those who just enjoy the game on the weekend and don't think about it much outside that, or too deeply on game plans etc. think that he's a good coach. Combine with Koch's years of 'Little old club from Alberton' casting us as a minnow, with continual references back to 2008-2012 (combining to deliberately lower any expectations) and it's no surprise so many casual fans think 'next year could be our turn with Ken!'.This year feels like a very mid table year. We could lose to any team and i think we'll lose few we shouldn't.
No one enjoys being bottom 4, but it's the only way we'd get enough pressure to have a change in coach before his contract expires. Otherwise until then it's just 'it's a tough competition', 'we're a small club', 'Remember 2012!'. No wonder those with any clue are just a step away from checking out, as a normal season is looking like a normal Ken season.
