Is David Noble the new Mark Neeld?

I feel for David Noble. I also wonder about how John Noble feels? He was part of the Collingwood team that overran North on the weekend. He may well be feeling substantial guilt in his father's demise. I could imagine he might believe that if North had won that game, his father might still be coach of North. It's like an ancient Greek tragedy.

This is after the game.

Reckon father and son doing fine.

The writing was on the wall so not much to do with the pies loss, really

Noble and McCrae would respectively make sure John knows it has nothing to do with him.

A greek tragedy is a good metaphor for the whole North fiasco.

What a joke. Don’t even give the bloke 2 seasons. He needs at least 3 to make any impact. They are still hitting bottom FFS. They fielded around 10 afl standard players on the weekend and around 5 good quality players of those 10. 

Norm Smith and Clarko would not have done any better

Yeah that's the shot! I'm sure they both know what a tough caper this footy business is. Sad but reality, David is going to be just fine.

Roos is a great Roos person first and foremost.

Well if you dont have tickets on yourself, dont expect others to.

I thought we had been reliably informed that Roos was not happy with the approach at Norf?

Though I think Clarkson would be a good fit in turning around their culture, the word is he doesn't want to have to rebuild.

So this surely means that Yze and Williams would be in the running if they decide to go for it.

Yze would be stupid beyond stupid to take this on. I know that senior coaching gigs don't come around often, but going to North is a sure fire way to ruin your career before it's begun. They have to get someone experienced who can buy them time to rebuild, the same way Roos did for us.

Williams could be a better option, but again, does he have the personality to deal with the mess that is North?

Did you feel the same way about Mark Neeld?

Let down by who he had around him. 

Leigh Matthews said it all a couple months back on Sportsday; aside from Noble, you couldn’t trust anyone at that club coz they were new to footy and you (or the players or the club itself) couldn’t say for certain ‘this person can do a great job’.

He needed a Noble above him as footy boss and a CEO that was Jackson-like.

if you're an assistant coach you'd be mad to take that job.  It's a career killer.

AFL won’t let them do that - it will be either a Ross Lyon type or a Alan Richardson type with a handover to a young coach after 3 years.

Amarfio should be on thin ice if I know the AFL.

Ross Lyon. What a way to end your existence as a footy club. Lucky I don’t care about Norf.

How does Brady Eawlings escape all this?

He's been an absolute mess of an appointment. 

Spot on Dazz. It appears from the outside that he's the chief architect of this disaster. North's version of CS.

He seems to be Teflon

Oh it would be death watching them play but they wouldn’t lose by 10 goals; there would barely be 10 goals in the match…

And of course, they would go back to beating us all the time.

VFL coach Leigh Adams will be interim coach.  Poor bugger.  That'll be two coaching careers Norf have killed in one season 

The mind boggles… Must really rate their assistant match day coaches 🙄

Ross Lyon is a terrible person. North with a young list need somebody to drive culture and nurture these guys. Lyon is literally an asshat.

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
