I was somewhat NOT serious. Don’t tell anyone though.
But I think you are, don’t take this badly, perhaps too much the other way. This is not healthy.
Can I give you some food for thought.
Every now and then someone might come up with a new theory on how to see footy. In his case, well done on coming up with the theory that a list of elite kickers will be able to slice through the flood and press and well done on recruiting accordingly and prior to the expansion teams coming into existence and everyone being unable to quickly replicate.
Well done on keeping your on field leaders going well about 3 years past regulation expiry date. What drugs are you on Hawthorn and what have you got away with. Well done. How does Burgoyne at 34 have the 3rd longest consecutive games tally?
Now that everyone else has copied and matched that theory, he has to invent some new theory that about 100 or more smart, competitive footy minds (ie other teams coaches and footy influencers) can’t think of.
You really see him as some kind of superior being?
I don’t like the odds of him coming up with some new theory nobody else thinks of again.
Furthermore, even if he does, I don’t see him having the recruiting means to be able to achieve it quickly.
So he therefore need to stick with his existing theory and get more elite kicking players to replace the aging and retiring ones.
The rest of the comp needs to continue to refuse to trade with them and needs to continue (last year was good for once) to stop doing dumb things - like thinking that their trash is actually good and trading for it. Leave them with their Hartung’s and Vickery’s. Leave them on their list.
And next year the good teams with good players need to smash the ■■■■ out of them. Smash them into submission. Smash the remaining believe that they are somehow superior.
Its important for us to no longer respect them. They are no longer worthy of respect. They are now are garbage side and should be treated as such.
Even if you do think he’s a genius. Just believe that they will fail. Change your mindset. Maybe begrudgingly down the track we’ll be forced to accept we were wrong. But for now. He’s crap. They are crap.
