Good news. The old Fagan role? Perfect for Bolts I reckon.

Someone mentioned somewhere he was struggling a bit mentally and might not have even left the house for 6 odd weeks. Could be completely false but I do think he was struggling post sacking. Hopefully he can get the passion for coaching and contribute to another flag in the Brown and Gold.
Its the feeling of being used. Teague apparently has a contract which wasnt offered to Bolts because "its the way of the future"

Karma bus left essendon a couple of years back, but I'm thinking it will arrive at south brunswick sometime soon

Got to feel lighter when he wakes up each morning, without that yoke of intergenerational stupidity you wear when coaching at Pig’s arse.

Thanks.

Unless you've copyrighted that expression, I'm borrowing to use for: Carlton, Melbourne, Essendon, Collingwood, Richmond ...

True.

I thought the way the support around him just disintegrated, plus the final press conference, was bad enough. You reminded me of that whole "let's put him on salary instead of contract because that's better for everyone" deal.

They are such arseholes at that footy club.

Good news, glad we got him back before someone else snapped him up. Obviously a good coach despite his results at Carlton. He will have learned soooo much from that experience too.

Excuse my ignorance ... but what exactly does a Director of Coaching do? We didn't have one this year, so it doesn't strike me as a necessary role.
I'm not exactly sure but I think we did suffer from losing Fages. Of all the coaching staff we have lost/had poached over the years I think that was the hardest one to cover. We really didn't play well this year in quite a few games and seemed to have quite a few issues, whether this was due to not having a director of coaching or not I don't know for sure but we definitely performed better in the years that we had one.

That Jack was trying to poach HFC staff against his word and an agreement that he would not do such a thing.
Poaching staff while having a non compete clause

Yeah right! I don’t think I had read that.
That would be one part of the band that won’t come back.

Considering Bolts was sacked I suppose there is no no poaching of players & staff clause if there were some favourites of Bolton that could be swayed.

Where the Carlton board has been misled with the performance of the Teague train is the reliance on their older players.

I’ve heard Murphy interviewed after game and say he’s happy to be playing midfield again. What Bolton was trying to do was develop these players in the ones rather than give them a vfl apprenticeship.

All of their wins on the Teague train it was their 27 year and older brigade in their best.
