Actually, Smarty is a smartie, literally; extremely intelligent and has an MBA.
I'm not saying he's done a great job, in fact I just don't know, but "moron", he ain't.
Haha I have an honours degree and a Masters, I left my car unlocked for ~4 hrs today with my bag inside. Degrees can be deceiving🤣🤣

Wasn't someone here claiming we didn't sack Saunders, North Melbourne just offered him a blank cheque to come back?

Given there's no announcement of him going back to North and Geelong are sniffing I think it's safe to say that it's BS and we did actually let him go.

9 years ago, to entice him over to North. Not last week to entice back. You can put the spoon back on the bench now

Wasn't there a theory Saunders had to come to us to save the reputation of KangerTech or have I got that wrong?

The rumour was that Hass & Burton bungled the implementation of Kanga-tech during 2018. Saunders was brought in to correct what they were doing. Depending on how you look at it, you could say that Saunders came in to save Kanga-Tech's reputation.

My understanding was that they brought in the equipment, but chose not to use the accompanying software package. The club was using the equipment with old spreadsheet data that was set up by Poulos (?).

Bear in mind the software package is an additional financial cost

Kelly said on 5aa that Burgess is quality and they’d be interested if he was available.

Asked about Saunders said he’s going on to other opportunities, then made a comment we had work to do to replace him. Sounded like it wasn’t our call.

Just like how Hart chose to move back to Melbourne for family.

How Hass can survive the purges of 2019 and 2020 is beyond me. He should have been the first guy on the chopping block.
I can only guess he was already contracted for 2021. After our coaches bemoaned our lack of fitness all year and we suffered a raft of hamstring injuries for the second time in three years, it just doesn't make sense to keep him.
