    Bennett also said Price was the real deal. We all know how that turned out.

    6 games as head coach does not constitute a Successful CV , under no circumstances is he fit to be selected. Demetriou or Holbrook I couldn’t argue with.

    Dean Young played a junior grand final at the same ground on the same day as me.

    We won. He didn’t.

    I just have a feeling that the Young-Flanagan coaching partnership will thrive for the remainder of the season with the shackles released.

    Who knows about 2021 coaching options, but at least the steps have begun to end the abyss.

    Dean Young has the opportunity to showcase some creative coaching skills in the remaining 6 games...if i was him id introduce some trick shots in our game...f**king nothing to lose...show some balls and also team up Sailor w Clune in the halves for the rest of season..

    I would be reintroducing :
    - The Mouse Trap near the oppositions line - I would actually do a back to back mousetrap one tackle after the other (unconventionality at its best)

    - Early tackle short or long kicks for Dufty if opposition fullback is up in the line

    - Short kick offs after we get scored on

    - Re introduce the double wrap around that we used to execute so well w Darius at FB for Matt Cooper to score running straight and hard but this time Dufty to execute and Aitken to score - the merkin runs as straigh and hard as Cooper

    - And finally why not bring back the Wedge lol!! - I'm certain if we have Sims, Tyson, Vaughan, Mciness, Aitken pushing Kerr near the line he scores....

    C'mon Young grow some balls and try something different - your a 100/1 to land the job...dont die wondering !

    Jesus, didn't you soak in our CEO's quote about Dean ? It ruled him out completely.

    Dean Young approached the players today with an outline for what he wants for the remainder of the year.

    He is quoted as telling Korbin Sims to "run hard" and that "we'll play off the back of it".

    Some serious coaching happening here :joy:

    Innovation at its apex.

    That might be ok but can Demetriou come too. Then we have Bennett Football Manager, Demetriou Head Coach and Hornby (an ex school teacher ?) assistant. Bennett trains Demo and he trains Hornby who may take an overseas appoint then come back when Bennett goes to a Retirement Village or passes on ( bit harsh).
    Sorry we are already a retirement home for ex-players.

    There have been some notable school teacher - rugby league coaches....Warren Ryan, Brian Smith, Roy Masters and all made a GF appearance. I would like to see Hornby emulate/better their achievements.

    The worry is that Young is also getting praise from Bennett and Laurie Daley. Daley claims he was in awe of Young's communication skills with the Tongan team (sign language?).

    Be afraid- be very afraid.

    I am sure that if you took Daley’s wig off his head he would have no brains at all.

    If the Drongos win we should sign Seabass as soon as the game ends.

    So, what does this mean? Bennett as head coach with Daley and Young as assitants.

    You can add Hasler to that list.

    Did John Jansen ever coach?

    It’s a 3 way mix. Bit of Pricey, bit of Mcflop and a touch of Deano. Dragons footy 101
