One day the AFL world will wake up to the idea that assistant coach and senior coach are two totally different roles requiring totally different skill sets.Someone who has coached their own side for 6 years and had full control of the football program across 3 grades of a club is probably better experience than 6-8 years purely as an assistant coach at AFL level and never had to make tough decisions re selection, cutting players and implement positional and strategy changes on game day.
Sure compared to someone who has coached 6 years as head coach at AFL level they are behind the 8 ball, but most coaches who have never coached their own side, be it an AFL reserves side or state league side are more likely to fail than ones who have. I want someone who has experienced the heat of being the main man and having to make the tough decisions on game day.
Including a genuine Port Adelaide person as the president instead of the egotistical muppet we currently have.We will not win another AFL premiership until we are back to being a self managed football club.
