It’s only one year more than many were happy with. I’m sure people think 2018 was part of the extension. It wasn’t. And I don’t care if some wanted him sacked at the end of 2017. That would be a small minority so it’s one wasted year that coaching wise is costing no money. And a bit off the field.this is subjective. i'd say hird was terrible but he still took the bombers to finals. pity about the fall out. but richo couldn't even make finals, but the cost to the club is probably less.
yes tim watson is horrible, but atleast it was quickly identified and corrected.
the danger is when you get people on the border line. they don't get found out. so you get these sub par results and it stagnates everything. you're essentially wasting the most precious thing you have, time.
any coach spending 6 years out of finals it horrible in my opinion. they just escaped for longer.
