    First time I've heard Goddard speak (it's always roo, dal santo etc who speak) and I was very impressed with him. Hayes, Roo, Goddard. The Saints certainly don't lack quality leadership options

    Thompson Resignation Very Imminent

    Wow, the tectonic plates are shifting today.

    Maybe Ablett might cap off a huge day this afternoon.

    I think, on reflection, people are perhaps being a bit scathing on the Hird appointment. There's no one pathway to being a good coach. Sure, doing an apprenticeship may give you a better chance of making a fist of things - but there's no one surefire pathway. And people who are using the Voss comparison...well, Voss actually made a damn good fist of things in his first year. He got them to the finals and they won a final, which was more than the experienced hand of Matthews could do in the previous few years. Not that I am bagging Matthews, just pointing out that not having experience is not a bar to success, it's just a hurdle.

    Haven't seen anyone criticizing it. People have pointed out the hurdle he has to overcome, but the fact the Dons are going to spend a ton on getting him a huge support staff and an experienced sounding board has also got a very prominent mention.

    Judd wins his third B&F in a row, Jordan Russell put up a good fight though.

    It should absolutely be criticised if they haven't gone through the proper process in finding a new coach. Expecting a massive Ben Cousins effect over the off season before they come crashing down to earth in round 1.
