Incorrect. Almost all were saying that a decision to extend should not be made until the end of this year or half way through next year. Don't think anyone would disagree with this would they?
I predicted he’d be our next coach a couple of years ago so I’d love for this to happen and I agree that he’s a darn good assistant and very highly rated but I just have my doubts about him as a head coach. Not sure why.Longmuir needs to come in....
Freak of a coach by all reports
Coached all lines of the field and currently Collingwoods team defence who just held up west coast from scoring for 45mins!
Also trained jk and darling for years in the forward line
Think of the build up we could have as the no 2 draft pick comes home and tries to get freos first flag!
Haven’t seen Rossy jump into freos crowd after kicking the winning goal before!
Rosich to go also and have belly and pav around him.
Has the media mentioned his name at all in wa?I predicted he’d be our next coach a couple of years ago so I’d love for this to happen and I agree that he’s a darn good assistant and very highly rated but I just have my doubts about him as a head coach. Not sure why.
It worries me that Kirks only experience is Roos, Longmuir and Ross. If the last half a dozen flags are anything to go by the Clarkson method is the way to go. I reckon WC or Richmond will win it this year too so add another to the list.Caracella or Kirk imo. If we can’t land one of them go Jlo.
Nah Ross wants to stay long term. It will end up like the Malthouse/Buckley thing.Why not Longmuir come over as assistant, with the view that he takes over after 2020?
That way Ross finishes out his contract, the players start listening to him more anyway (Ala Chris Scott in 2009/2010 over Mark Harvey) and then he takes full helm after.
Gives him time to adjust to the players and system, so that he can totally upend it by 2021
Every coach wants to stay long term. There's no other job they could do that would earn them over a million dollars a year, nobody is going to walk away voluntarily.Nah Ross wants to stay long term. It will end up like the Malthouse/Buckley thing.
I would like to see our players get off the tit and grow up and turn up to work to work.
