I just thought now is a good time to take an in depth look at our coaching structure and assess where they are at after a 2-4 start. I think it is abundantly clear we have more talent on our list now than we have had in the past 15 years yet there is clearly something wrong with the teams mental application and want to play for eachother.
In addition to that, we clearly have one of the worst game plans in the league that is incredibly easy to coach against. If we fail to score direct from the half back turnover then we have no other avenues to goal.
Last year we were top 3 for scoring in the AFL with Skipworth as our forward line coach. He has now been moved to the midfield, I don’t get it?
John Worsfold is clearly not a brilliant game day tactician and he doesn’t need to be as Head Coach, that’s why we have assistants to help him, Mark Neeld is the Game Performance Coach…the man with a 15% winning record as Senior Coach who was well known to be one of the worst coaches in AFL history is our game day performance coach. Says it all really.
Does anyone else actually watch the ‘From The Coaches’ review sent out to members after each game. I have never felt so uninspired by a group of coaches and their inability to explain why we are playing poorly and ways to address it. Where is the passion? where is the hurt? why does it feel like no one cares? why do we keep getting this corporate bulldust speak after every loss?
Goddard was hung out to dry by the media last week for his abusive nature in the huddle, I would have absolutely loved to see that kind of passion from the coaches and in particular Woosha. You can only play the nice guy coach for so long, it’s time to get angry!
