It comes down to poor judgment on Hook’s part IMHO
... and a current propensity to deal in hypotheticals
(“in our plans moving forward”)
about players yet to perform.
Duff is a bird in the hand,
... and that’s worth 2 in the bush?
especially on a shortening contract.
I still maintain we’d’ve been Top 4 had Duff been groomed & played at 6 this year.
Teflon is Hook’s (and ours)
Mc Fail era Achilles heel
.... & Hook can’t,
or stubbornly won’t,
Another coach now totally deaf to a Forum that knows its footy -
and what ‘Dragons footy’ has sadly become.
We can, however, play the waiting game
... as Aitken took down his buddy, so too will Hook’s.
And Hook’s poor judgment re hacks is just as likely to deliver us Milford next
...as he goes down trying to recreate some mythical bygone past
... and Gould must be smiling
Dufty has had what 5 years in the top grade...Agree good in attack...but rocks and diamonds....Most of the blame for his progression lies at the feet of our former coach...same as many others who left....
Griffin has made a call...He stated defense was an issue....there would be more to it....
Griffin knows more about footy than this whole forum combined....He needs to make a call in regards to future planning....We have Feagai x's 2 ..armone/sloan/Ramsey/sullivan/schiller/ etc all coming through...So if you keep dufty you risk losing some of these ...
You can't keep them all...As much as I have loved watching dufty in the red V...I wish him all the best wherever he ends up, except for when he plays against us....
