I think you're right there Wick, all the messaging just feels like marketing puff and deflection and lacks any modicum of honesty or awareness of what's really going on. You look at Teague's post game press conferences and all we get is 'we have to do better', 'we have to complete for longer', 'we have to execute under pressure'... but we get no explanation as to why our effort is not there, why we are not competing, why we are not executing for longer...I posted in last week's game thread that everything feels like a marketing stunt
Messaging isn't going to help.
It'll feel like more of the same.
It's time to show, not say.
Players - show commitment and intent on field and off. Those out of contract to stop the rumors and re-sign if you're going to.
Coaching - play players in their ideal positions, merit based selection, put players in a position to succeed, a willingness to change the gameplan more than just moving magnets
Front office - keep improving the books, improve the football culture
Those are what means more to me than anything else.
That belongs in the rumour thread!Harry McKay has re-signed.
The club has approached Ben McKay.
Teague has been sacked.
Most assistant coaches have been told they will not be offered a new contract.
There will be a full review of the whole football department.
Mitch McGovern is on the trading block.
Levi Casboult has retired effective immediately.
Zac Williams has renegotiated his contract to be more inline with the player he is $450k.
