It goes all the way back to the early days when they weren’t called the bombers. They were called the “same olds”.

Spot on - I’d forgotten that but you’re bang on and how bloody appropriate.
Thanks for the reminder.

It's a boat race process. Everyone knows it. No one wants to go against Hird and run second.

This is proof that Essendon still believes Essendon have all the answers. The most arrogant club in history.
Or actually get the job and have to deal with all the back room shenanigans that previous coaches with non essendrugs backgrounds had to endure. Then look for another job in 2 years time

And the captain of a ship is not the head of the navy, he is the head of his team on that ship, last comment by me, you have your head in the sand,.
TBR has is own agenda deedee

Doesn’t respond to what you actually said but chooses select words from your argument and replies to his version (an incorrect one) of what you said.

He does this because he can’t refute your argument so replies with a long winded ramble designed to bore the reader into submission.

Classic diversionary tactic. Fooling no one but himself

Classic response from someone out of their depth in the discussion, play the man and not the ball.

Likely because I've forgotten more about this stuff than you know.

Ummmm….wasn’t switskowski an Essendon board member??


Ok then.
Don't think on the board but a high profile supporter. No independence at all.

And the preparation of the report was restricted, Ziggy could not actual deal with the drugs issue and he didn't have access to all the main players. Essentially a whitewash.

Not surprising given the bombers history.

Fingers crossed Hirdy is appointed shortly.

Love your posting TBR. Like the alternate responses. Has made the twilight zone bearable while we wait for the important stuff like Trade Week

However you pot Cooper for playing the man not the ball, then you play the man not the ball.

TBR agree with your POV a lot of times but not on this one.

Hird was at the very minimum negligent and complicit.

Given position and severity nothing other than a life ban IMO is sufficient.

Have just received a fascinating and thought provoking txt from a mate who is normally well on the money with his news. I won’t repeat it here. But I do agree with part which also supports that Hird WILL be bombers coach. It’s been a long time coming to get the Golden Child back to Essendon. Interesting to note him quoted in the paper as saying he “would love the job” blah blah blah….”done lots”…blah blah…”passionate”…..blah blah…”if I get the opportunity it would be amazing, REDEMPTION is a big thing, but for me I just love the Essendon Football Club”…

A far cry from “there are elements of coaching I like, but I would have to discuss it with my family first”. That was prior to him officially applying for the job. He probably just grabbed his CV out and changed the dates from when Worsfold was appointed, Rutten etc.

I’ll only believe he doesn’t get the job when the official announcement is made. Till then he remains raging favourite/shoe in for mine.

Dodoro has survived the bloodletting at the Bombers, with Campbell, Madden & Brasher having all departed. Wouldn't have thought so, but it's looking more than a possibility that Hird might coach them again, because Sheedy and Dodoro are big supporters with plenty of influence.
