Great news is it not for all PRE's as Bernie will lead the Tigers until 2021.

Saw the footage with Benny telling the players and they went beserk with joy, clearly Dimma is held in very high regard.

After 5 flags Dimma is re-signed for the rebuild.
With previous experience he should get the second rebuild up n about in half the time it took to get the first one right ;D.

Looking forward to finals each year and maybe even another flag or two before the end of 2021. Hope I haven't put the mozz on us, I'm usually a walking disaster area when I start believing we'll go well.

1 year too long. More important to sign Leppa and Caracalla :hihi

Love Dimma as much as anybody but agree totally with this - just how much did these two contribute to Dimma's new coaching style and how much would die off again if these two or even one of them left...

maximising the players' strengths took too long but that's irrelevant now.

had faults and owned all of them. i'm happy with that.

let's all enjoy the ride 8-

It's bloody annoying hearing media types comparing Bucks to Dimma as a reason why Bucks was right to be extended. Other than the 2016 aberration, Dimma took us from the worst club in a while to 3 years of finals. He always had the runs on the board. Bucks has just gone backwards year after year. There is no comparison.

Well done Dimma. If everything goes well in the next 3 years, he'll surpass Tommy Hafey.

Best thing is that it's also the karma to the Bummers for having our player Sheedy becoming the longest and most successful coach there.

Who would've thought that in 1981.
