Several have mentioned that players are frustrated, (I don’t know) but I think it is related to being requested to do ‘jobs’ not play football. The article above is how Richmond turned around their game plan and instilled trust in the coach and players.
I believe Goodwin can be the man, however I want the best 22 playing. This doesn’t mean blooding first year players to get them games (unless they are in the best 22) and playing players out of position. The players need confidence that their teammates are the best players available. Dropping ex captains can cause factions if they believe he is in the best 22.
I think the bombing into the forward line is potentially due to them not having a license to just play football and take the best available option.
Hopefully it is just a trust issue, if it is, the recruiting, selection committee and game plan will all influence the confidence the players take into the game.
