Have I ever mentioned that I think Cameron is a god awful coach?
Because he is.

Even with that though I didn't expect the players to just... give up.
That's the type of loss that scars blokes and clubs.

Still holding out hope the AFL axe Cameron in the last year of his contract and install their newest recruit, one Bradley Scotts. They could make a good argument for choosing him too. The argument has always been that our list was shit but Scott got us fighting above our weight class, imagine what he could do with a list like GWS!

Fremantle has appointed Collingwood assistant coach and former Docker Justin Longmuir as senior coach.

Longmuir, who has been defensive coach under Nathan Buckley for the past two seasons, has been appointed for the next three seasons.

The Gold Coast assistant package is unironically disgusting.

Pick 1 and 20 this year.
Mid 1st next.
the first 2nd round the year after.

If that's not sick enough here comes the real bullshit.

They get the entirety of Darwin as part of its Academy access zones and it can PRE LIST players from that region.
On top of that they can have T E N rookies.

Absolutely f’ed beyond relief. I literally can't believe it.

That's just making things worse.

The problem is the Gold Coast itself.

"No one moves to the Gold Coast to work their campaigner out."^

To quote my mate I watched the rugby with yesterday. And no sporting team gets success without the willingness to work that hard.


^Probably one Tender Touch related exception to that rule but even GC hookers have it easier than elsewhere (so I've heard anyway.)

Is that pick one this year on top of the pick 1 they were going to get already?

yes, so they have picks 1 & 2 this year, will take rowell & anderson and still have a gizzilion points with their 2 early 2nd rounders to cover the academy choices.

Smart move.

He's a mature body style of coach and the Crows are going in to rebuild mode.
I'd agree but I seem to recall reading that the bloke has had horrendous money issues over the years, which makes me think he would absolutely say yes to at least being considered for another high paying gig. Although, who know how much cash freo threw his way, might well be sitting plumb right now.
