    Re: Dogs Shuffle Assistant Coaches

    I'm not sure the coaching panel changing could be attributed to some of our players attitude or inconsistent output

    Re: Dogs Shuffle Assistant Coaches

    The article shows the shuffle of the job titles. I've heard that Brett Montgomery played the 'bad cop' assistant coach and had no problem with it, to the good cop assistants and head coach around him. Obviously Monty went chasing a job and is no longer with us. I'd love to know if we have replaced his unofficial role or whether we decided we didn't need a forceful, direct and honest 'bad cop' to contrast the the great 'good cops' still there?
    He'll wrap you in his arms, Tell you that you've been a good boy.
    He'll rekindle all the dreams, It took you a lifetime to destroy.
    He'll reach deep into the hole, Heal your shrinking soul. But there won't be a single thing that you can do.
    He's a god, he's a man, He's a ghost, he's a guru.
    They're whispering his name. Through this disappearing land. But hidden in his coat Is a red right hand.

    I think we can pretty much blame Gia. He's been an escape goat (sic) for his entire career much like he was for our forward issues last year until we started being efficient, so let's just lose our optimism as a supporter group and revert to type!

    Seriously though, all support coaches don't work autonomously.

    Each would have set training and guidance schedules approved by Bevo, it's the basic governance each AFL club coach implements to allow them to be higher level but in contact rather than micro-managing which the modern game forbids.

    It's where the good communicator/good person attributes come into it, you only need your communicator or receiver to be not in line with your values in those areas and things can fall apart. If we have the same group as last year communicating the message, then it's likely the issue is on the receiver side........that's if there's an issue at all.
