    For me I can't choose between Robert Walls and Danny Frawley. Walls took a competitive list under Northey in 95 to mediocrity very quick and Frawley started well but questionable recruiting decisions and game plan put us in a hole for a long time. Interested to see other supporters opinions on who was their worst coach of all time and why.

    Either Pagan or Mick... Probably Mock because he was an arrogant tosser who refused to accept that the game had passed him. Pagan at least went away gracefully

    Probably the obvious choice, I however thought he was a reasonable coach. Just a bad move on his part coming to coach the Eagles after Malthouse left. Whoever took that on was always going to have their work cut out for them.

    Most coaches are generally as good as their list. Never seen a bad premiership coach and also never seen a good coach come last. There is always better coaches than others but you will never convince me that if Mark Neeld had Hawthorns list that he would not of been successful.

    Sheedy was great. He did exactly what was asked of him as the inaugural coach of a start up. It stupid to underestimate the challenge, and ours was probably the most challenging ever from a coaching point of view. The decision to stay with the young talent more than anyone expected meant an expanded list of youngsters to develop with few experienced heads to help and influence.

    He necessarily functioned like a director of coaching, and pretty much anyone who looked like they could coach could get work with us in that period. It was his job to add cohesion and pull it all together, and he did a brilliant job.

    Leon's taken the team from one of potential to successive top 4 finishes in a short period. What's not to like.
