I found it interesting watching Neil Craig in the presser with Essendon. Mark Thompson named Essendon coach as Bombers confirm James Hird won't return to top job in 2014 First, I would like to say I wish him the best success (except against us) and I highly respect him as a coach and teacher of the game. He talks about his role, as development for coaches of the future at their club. I find it interesting him saying it is a role that "groundbreaking, a new role. but starting to evolve at afl clubs at the moment" wonder if he is refering to us at the moment. also find it interesting that there is this role for him at essendon, but not at us. I understand there was no obvious need for him under his former role now that we have Roos with all his experience, but Essendon find space with Thompson as new coach who is just if not more experienced. We have a succession plan in place, perhaps craig in the role he as now at essendon would have proven valuable for us? and then we also would not have had to pay him out(assuming we will do that???) and it takes some pressure off Roos developing "the sucessor" (not to mention that two heads are better than one, whomever Essendon are grooming for the next head coach role will have Craig and Thompson teaching them, a pretty good apprenticeship ... )
A good read by Matt Burgan as the Burgatron shadows Neil Craig for a day. Only part 1 of 2. http://www.melbournefc.com.au/News/NewsArticle/tabid/7415/Default.aspx?newsId=135425 Interesting to note that John Poulakakis has resigned from his position as Chief Commercial Officer. Basically in charge of the club's commercial operations.
