What a load of crap!!!! Sydney had 3 captains and won a flag 

So what, just because Sydney has done it and Roos coached us means we have to do it. Move on

Similar criticisms were given to Jones when he took over. They might even still apply now.

It's just one guy but I've heard Viney has been great for Petracca, whom the Saints labelled as difficult when the passed on him in the draft. Similarly Jones has been really good for Brayshaw, even if he was probably the easier one to mentor.

I don't think Viney's perfect, but if he's ready to take on the responsibility and be accountable for his mistakes sharing the job might just be perfect.

Disgraceful decision.  Viney is too young and surfs too much for him to be co-captain.

If not for missing a string of games through injury Viney would be a back to back best and fairest winner. Talent shouldn't have a huge bearing on leadership, but I think performance is an important factor and I think it's fair to say Viney is our best performed player over the last 2 years. That's worthwhile considering.

Nick Maxwell and Tom Harley would agree with this part...

Maybe Jones is mentoring Vines to bring him up to speed with all the things behind the scenes that Jack would not have seen before.

By the sounds of things Jones had no idea it was going to happen.

Fair enough, but he can still do that as the sole captain

Not really, it's not just an on field job, there is plenty that they do for the club when the others have left and put their feet up.

Of course he wouldn't have been expecting it, but it's not like we've forced him in to stepping aside, or premature retirement.

I'd trust that Goody approached the situation very delicately, as with the utmost respect the Jones.

Jones said he found out a few days ago and was surprised

Reading a bit in to it there, Clint.  Take a look at Goodwin's presser, explains a lot, and I'm sure this was how he approached it with NJ.

It was unexpected, but that doesn't = poorly handled.

Given that, it would be good to see a statetment from the club explaining the rationale.

Now we know why Viney loved being called Captain Jack!

It's already been on the website for a few hours.

Captains: Jones and Viney

Leadership group: Lewis, T McDonald, Gawn and Vince.

 

Don't like them pushing Viney into the role so soon. Seems a bit of a slap in the face to Jones. Would've preferred Jones stay sole captain for another 2 years with Viney as Vice and then taking over. Congrats to Viney anyway, he's a legend.

Co-captains!  Why?  

Load of [censored].

Unnecessary.  

Whats wrong with Captain and Vice captain?  [censored] co-captains.  [censored]-House

Whilst i'm at it, I just have to ask...Is Burgs the worst interviewer in the history of audiovisual communications.  God help me.

Been awhile since Ive had a squiz at Demonland, I'm absolutely pumped for upcoming season.  Jordan Lewis will be running out for us this season and next.  And Hogan.  pharkin yibbida, dibbida!!!!!!

I'd have preferred they wait another year before doing this, but what do I know?

NJ is always going to sound proffesional about the situation, he's a real team oriented fellow.  I can't discern his inner feelings from this, he'll do whatever's best for MFC.

The weight of 50+ years of expectation from premiership drought will be easier lifted with two captains raising the cup.

Great move. Congrats Jack Viney on the promotion, and well done chunk on maturely accepting you are an even greater leader by not feeling like you've got to go it alone.
