Just quit as one of Worst folds' assistants. He did us enormous damage but I still feel for the bloke.

Why on earth would he have been Essendon’s game day strategy coach?

Were they tanking?

I watched Worsfolds post match presser this round and thought I was rewatching Neelds pressers all over again.  

Excrucitating.

Neeld as coach. A few pointers as to why it all went  pear shaped.

The worst process  re finding a coach ( ie give to one person to decide) , the worst recommendation by a standing coach ( Malthouse who was after a legacy...he never deserved) . Given to the worst, most reluctant coach seeker ( Mr Lyon) and  brought into a club that handled fall out between schwab and Bailey in the worst possible way. He was perhaps the worst possible communicator I have ever seen, using the worst game day tactics I can ever remember. 

We got what we deserved as a club when we bought in Neeld. And Essendon no doubt got what they deserved when they did the same. Its true he may have taken the wrap for a slew of crappy issues at the dees then same same  at the bombers. I just cant seem to feel ANY sympathy for him whatsoever. 

...and IMO the notion he "quit" mid season would be utter rubbish. Fall on your sword before we slay you with it. Lets hope he's the first domino to fall and the bombers can keep us all amused all season as sack woosha talks grow in volume.

You were lucky you were away. I happened to be living in Melb at the time and a bikes ride from the G. I went to almost every game in the era. And often went home at half time. Re his communication. its a body of work more than one individual thing. youd have to have sat through his post match media conferences and seen footage of his first address to the players. No one was playing for him from the get go. He lost the players in his first pre season

The Age is reporting he has been sacked.

"Mark Neeld has been sacked by Essendon after his job in the Bombers' football department was made redundant. Neeld's role will not be filled, and he will receive a payout".

I could say something pithy about he and Essendon.  Essendon can burn hell for eternity but I feel for Neeld's family.

I wish him and his family well.

At this point I think if Neeld hadn't been at Collingwood, they would have been the greatest team of all time. To win a flag carrying Mark Neeld must be the world's most amazing accomplishment.

Really??. This inept Coach set us back 5 years with his methods which clearly have led to his downfall at  Essendon. Clearly it was either him or Worsfold! Guess who won!

Pity ?? Nar, yeah, Nar!
