They’ve done the right thing.
They were part of the losing culture at Melbourne. It’s not directly their fault but it was ingrained and trained into them.
It was a wasted period of development when added with changes in the game speed, intensity requirements and player injury.
You have to remember that Neeld came in after Bailey when the loser rot had already set in. Neeld (after seeing what he saw at Collingwood) probably delivered some hard truths to players and club that weren’t welcomed.
I remember hearing that when Scully made it to the club, he was instantly their best trainer. That’s an indictment on the rest of the group to me rather than an appraisal of Scully.
It wasn’t until Roos made it to the club that they realised how farked they truly were and began changing the list for the better.
