If your friends and family were here would they describe you as obstinate? Do you struggle to back down in an argument or admit you may have been wrong? Just wondering.
Wonder away to your heart's content.
I spend my time wondering why some posters don't wonder if Port would be a better team with any other competent coach.

Buckley shouldn’t be used as an example of stability = success. Only Hardwick is in that category and he at least made a number of finals in the lead up to the premiership.

What has Buckley actually achieved? He inherited a young premiership team but failed miserably to capitalise.

Admittedly Buckley has made a GF which makes him more qualified than Ken, but even then - is making a GF now the definition of success? If so, is Ross Lyon 4 times the coach of Buckley?
Hardwick made finals three times in those 7 years leading into the first flag in year 8 and lost all three finals. 13th in year 7. So year on year comparison Ken > Dimma so far :)

2 years to me seems about right. One more wont happen and 3 is too many.
Surely Hinkley needs to be put on staff so he never has to be concerned about new contracts or contract extensions again. When he has had enough of Ports he can simply resign but he can never be forced to leave.

Like Neil Craig... then we just sack him and not worry about massive pay out...

The Camry Crows were lucky that Craig agreed to walk. They didn't sack him because they couldn't without being liable for wrongful dismissal.

Putting Craig on staff was another Trigg master feck up.

Food for thought

This condensed season and the Covid-19 situation meant less training sessions right.

That also means less time for the players to be corrupted by bad coaching and gameplan.

Our season success is purely off the talents of our list not being overcoached and playing to their instincts.

So what if we lose both of our finals games, will all the Hinkley lovers think that next years extension and possibly beyond is the right call?

Why does the new Port keep putting the cart before the horse, results first decisions second. That would be 8 years as head coach and no winning finals for 6 years.
