Would have been better if he had coached an actual AFL standard team, but hey, he’s welcome back to HFC anytimeGreat to have this guy back. He would have learnt a lot being a senior coach. Both he and Clarko, in the second half of the year, saw how players like to be freed up a little to just play footy and enjoy it and not be stuck in structure the whole time. They will both be better for it.
Who gets that freedom of expression at Hawthorn though? Very specific players like Sicily and really even they are just doing the role asked of them. We've played the same plan nearly all year, when we don't it's a specific plan we execute to beat a team. Clarkson gets to do that because of built up good will, he'd be sacked by Kennett if we hadn't overachieved due to his innovations in 2008.There’s rigid structures and structures that allow freedom of expression which seem to work better
Carlton are broken club internally. CEO and SOS not particularly fond of each other.Was very valuable to Hawthorn in the past. Unfortunately his first appointment as senior coach was at a basket case. He was broken by the end and on a hiding to nothing from the beginning.
Welome back, Bolts.
"Seem" is the operative word.There’s rigid structures and structures that allow freedom of expression which seem to work better
That's such an interesting point you make mate.Lol mate we play rigidly to a structure and system. It is the envy of the afl. In fact when we r on you can tell because we defend well within these structures. During our premiership year transition from attack to defense would take seconds. Our win against wce was our ability to stick to those structures
Welcome back bolts
