No idea who they've got. All I know is they've met with a few candidates and are apparently announcing it at the B&F in early October and introducing the new coach on the night.Any word on the Hobart coaching job?
Heard a whisper at the butcher shop that young Perry who coached the 18s a few years back was interested in the role?
Can you confirm KP or Gearsman?
Yes he did. There was also a huge blunder involving the Lipscombe Medal in the Colts.I heard that the SFL had an awards night and a mate in the Brighton football club told me that Dylan Ford won the coach of the year award and reserves Medal
I was very disappointed that they didn't show the Brighton Womens vs Lindersfarne Grand final as I am a huge supporter towards the SFLW league. Also the Colts is already stuffed as it is. No Brighton, No Claremont, Soon to be No Sorell due to Sorrel having no juniors in the Stjfl system and No New Norfolk because of the lack of 18s/17sYes he did. There was also a huge blunder involving the Lipscombe Medal in the Colts.
Zac Bird from Sorell was awarded the medal but the umpires made a mistake in the opening round match at Pembroke Park when Hobart's Brock Daniels polled, but his name wasn't read out at the count.
Hobart Football Club raised the matter on the night and it was dicovered that the umpires had written down the name of a player in the Hobart reserves team that wore the same number as Daniels.
As a result, the error was discovered and Daniels was later awarded the Lipscombe Medal (along with Bird) at the grand final. So Bird and Daniels were co-winners.
You'd have to wonder whether there's been other mistakes throughout the counts given this huge stuffup. Certainly calls everything into question now.
Madeline Ogilvie has been very active in social media of late since backdooring her way into Parliament telling everyone how she's the president of the Southern Football League and going at great pains to express the fact that she's the first ever female president of the league!
Talk about narcissistic! Photo bombing every photo of winning teams and players, it's an embarassment.
Also her claim that playing grand finals back at North Hobart has been a success for the league doesn't stack up.
Crowds have been well down at grand finals since moving back there from KGV.
Huge drop in crowds on the big day since the league devolved into a two/three horse race every single year. It's starting to resemble what happened with the old TFL Statewide League in the 1990s, and crowds lost interest there and dropped away too.
The league copped huge criticism for not live streaming the grand final on the day, deciding to put it online later because they were supposedly struggling for funds and wanted to maximise the crowd attendance. This flies in the face of other statements they've made that they were supposedly doing quite well financially (not sure how).
This league needs a massive, massive overhaul ASAP.
