Mainly based on what I've seen & what I've heard...

Seen:

- his in-game changes in NEAFL were spot on for the most part & his development of our list has a direct correlation with his time as a development/neafl coach.
- likewise at AFL level thus far. His use of Cunnington & Ziebell in particular has been smart so far IMO.

Heard:

- The players seem to really love him. Both Swans & seemingly now the Roos boys... his work with AJ I rate very highly. He just sounds like he "gets it" from a player perspective.

Not saying you were wrong just curious

Good reasons

There’s a large element of luck too I think

While the SCG Trust and Cricket NSW are bunch of half forward flankers I am opposed to the Swans position. For me dealing with the centre pitch area is a traditional part of footy. Keep the pitch!
Agree with the sentiment but think it’s more about injury and potential litigation these days. You saw Belly on Saturday?

You are aware that the SCG is now the last AFL ground to not have a drop in wicket.

That tradition has been well and truly finished due to the risks associated with the different surfaces.

It won't get the use when the bum shiffers and divers go back next door. Also the stands would have to be redone to allow the cranes in to bring the drop ins in.
Lol, they don’t use a crane and certainty won’t need to change the design of the stands to remove or instal the drop in wickets.

Im sorry to inform you that they do ! Trent Copeland NSW bowler also said the same today and really thanks for your cool photo.
If you bothered to watch the video, you would have noticed that they now use a specialised low rise carrier which picks up each of the wickets and carries them into place that can enter the field through the current access points just like they do with the rest of their machinery to lay turf etc.

Oh and I am not sure what a state cricketer has to do with leading edge turf management and stadium design, but hack your way further into nonsense.

There also has been a statement put out by the SCG trust champ. So hack back .

Thanks for sharing DST
Pretty impressive operation that. Never really put much thought into it but sadly have to admit I had just assumed it was a long drawn out process involving a couple of synchronised helicopters lol... poor me 😔

I have no problem with how horse responded to the questioning on afl 360 nor how he is dealing with his contract situation.

Why would he tell the public of his views while he is still negotiating?

All this talk about his lack of commitment etc is rubbish since he's been here for nearly 18 years. The fans need to show him a bit more respect and understanding of how he handles his contract situation.
