Coons, early in his media career, is trying to bring something different to the table. At this stage his insights as a player just out of the game are good but he still needs to work on his opinions.
It almost comes across like he wants to offer an opposing view even if that view has little or no merit. I’m sure he’ll get the balance right eventually.
Re: Stringer - drawing comparisons to his Dog days hold little relevance to his new career at Essendon. Different environment, facilities, coaches, players, supporters, expectations gives him a great opportunity to relaunch his career.
The guy has 2 kids. He’s been through the wringer. He’s growing up and sees a great opportunity to make a name for himself for all the right reasons. I fully expect Jake to become a bone fide champion of Essendon by the time he hangs up his boots. Lots to be excited about.
