Obviously if they go out and win a flag he'll be vindicated, but at the moment I reckon he's feeling the pinch.
I love Thompson as coach, but his new 'relaxed cockyness' persona is interesting. If he had been doing it for the last 4 years it'd be fair enough. But it kind of has mainly emerged this year. To me that suggests Ablett's possibility departure has had an effect.
