    Right idea, bad execution.

    He’s already one are ahead of BA!

    It’s easy to say admin never offered BA the staff he required, but he should never of attempted to take on additional roles.

    I’m also sure I’ve read somewhere where BA stated he didn’t require any help.

    I suspect that isn’t per year but a 3 year or so deal (if there is even any truth to it)

    Yeah, reading the rest of the article I'd say that's right.

    Is the coaching really the problem?

    Laurie Daley made a good point the other morning, that BA can coach but he has probably got as much as he can from the current group of players, so we need 8 or so new players.

    And BA has the ability to do that, make some changes to the roster.

    Also I reckon injuries need to be factored in. Yeah we lost the first 6, but then as we suddenly got 2 wins we are hit we injuries - it really killed any chance we had of turning the year around. Then add some bad luck which always happens when you are struggling!!

    He was the one who brought the staff into the club. Do you think if he didn't believe he needed them in the first place they would've been brought in?

    I just find it odd that we had coaches to fill these positions, brought in by BA, and then when Max comes in saying he's going to cut the spending of the football club all of a sudden the assistants are gone and aren't replaced.

    It's easy to say that BA shouldn't have taken on the responsibility but do you think an employee is going to come out and say that their employer won't give them money to fill the positions required, especially one that is as proud as BA?

    It’s all hindsight now, but only so much one human can do.

    It’s just one fcking bizarre scenario. It’s not like this is under 8’s footy.

    Going by what you’ve said, about max cutting spending, why the sudden change of tune and allowing kidwell in? One minute BA is good enough, then all of a sudden someone deemed he isn’t? Or did he have a dummy spit damanding help?

    Going by the softening of the reforms to the PLC board, maybe Max just doesn't care anymore and wants to go do an easier job?

    How would you or I (or anyone) really be able to come to that conclusion beyond pure speculation? It's one of a host of things that have changed (including the injury rate, the squad etc).....it's not as if we can rewind the world and run it again. I'd be leaning more towards recruitment issues compounded by a higher than average injury toll, but we'll never know.

    Feel free to believe what you want.
    Need to be careful with posts being deleted etc for saying certain things on here...
    But there are serious issues from the top of the club, that’s all I can really say.
    It’s not until you start to see some of the facts that you start to realize the real issues at the moment.
    And once again I’ll say it, it’s not the coach

    Sad to hear. It's always the same thing with us isn't it? Things fall into place and everything seems to be on the up n up and then...WHAMO! Back to shitsville we go. It's like some kind of sick self fulfilling prophecy and I'm nearly over it. I'd never not support Parra but Jeezus H f**king Christ! If there is a footy god, do you think you could find it in your heart to cut us a f**king break for once please?

    Thanks mate. You've confirmed what some of us have suspected.

    Unfortunately the footy gods won’t be able to do much until we get the right people in certain positions.
    It’s unfortunate that $$$ comes before onfield performances.
    And then to see the treatment BA has had to deal with lately because of it, it’s disgusting.

    200k per year still sounds like pretty good coin

    I think the coaching is a problem. I don’t think we’ve played an attractive brand of attacking footy since 2014. Every year after that has seen the team struggle to get over the line due to a lack of creativity. Even in 2016 and 2017 when the team was doing well it was more due to gritty defence rather than any meaningful attack. Even when we have loads of possession inside the opposition 20m zone we can’t get over the line for some reason. We’ve had the likes of Hayne, Radradra, Jennings, Gutherson, French, Norman and Moses during that time so playing talent hasn’t been the problem. In fact a lot of those players have shown outstanding individual form at different times over the years. What is your explanation then? Surely the way the team is being coached must have something to do with it.
