The problems did seem to start when the cap was introduced.

Knights has gone to West Coast
Interesting that there never seems to be any interest to lure him back. You see Wayne Campbell talking about his Richmond days fondly. But never hear boo from Knights.

I can't recall if his retirement was messy. Does anyone remember?

Frawley forced knighter into retirement and played him against Essendon one Friday night game as his farewell game.
Knights didn't want to retire.

He also dropped him when he would have registered the 2nd 100th consecutive games milestone. I don’t know what happened, but there always seemed to be bad feelings between Knights and Frawley.

It was evident after 1 year in the job Frawley replaced knights as captain with Campbell

That's undoubtably true but it's also uncanny how good assistant coaches always seem to be at good teams. Bit like head coaches.

I'm sure there's something in that somewhere......
good assistant coaches and good head coaches make good teams?

I think Knighter is smart! Goes to WC after geelong, was a coach at bombers, goes his time, when Hardwick retires, he is ready to return.
Dont know if going to work for a coach that will be relatively high up the list of probable sackings next year is a great idea.

If they go tits up and sack Simmo, Knighter would be on tenuous ground also I would expect.

But might just want out of Viktoriastan too like so many others, and ther opportunity presented itself.

That's certainly a plausible theory but it falls apart when successful coaches go to other clubs and don't have the same success.
Seems to be a very strong theme runs through the success story these days n the old super coach is only one pivotal part of the story.
Coach, assistants, players, admin, recruiting, pinch of luck.
Shuffle them up into any order you like, but without a healthy dose of each success is virtually impossible to achieve.
Last twenty or so years n there's been four very successful clubs n a couple of fairly successful clubs. Brisvegas, Geelold, Hawforn, Tiges, Sydaknee, Wet Coke. 17 flags between them n all have had very strong overlap in pretty much all core aspects during their successful periods.
Even if we go back to the good old days of VFL n half arsed almost professional footy. Clubs with a strong core of Coach, assistants, players, admin, recruiting, pinch of luck, n sometimes the old brown paper bag shoofty were generally the long term contenders when it came to finals n flags.

its all about the head coach in the end , can recall brittain, Mccartney and Wheadon all well credentialed assistants being involved , NEVER helped break the finals drought . realise there are many puzzle pieces to get right but there seems to be an imbalanced emphasis on asst coaches . i LOL when reviewing PA and CATS blogs after their recent demise , 2 guesses where they pinned the blame

Knights was screwed. He was still playing very good footy. Don't blame him for being a bit miffed.

Knights is never coming to Richmond as long as Dimma is around. Dimma said to the bombers it will take time to get into the finals. Knights said otherwise. Knights got the job over Dimma and was proven wrong.
