Really? With Leppa leaving thought there would be enough. Clubs can't be offering overs in this environment to attract assistants.Jumping off a sinking ship
Seriously devastated Fly leaving, pretty sure it is because, 'There's no cash here. Here, there's no cash. Cash! NO'. View attachment 10819
*If the $100k shortfall in the soft cap is the major component why Fly left I don't know how Stack and CJ could walk back into the club even if they are given another chance. No doubt they have cost someone their job.
You'll probably find the penny will slowly drop where clubs realise richmond assistants are head coach material as dynastic teams tend to produce (see Dawx: Fagen, Bolton, Ratten, Cameron, Hardwick, Simpson, Beveridge). Didn't seem to affect the Dawx at all, just continued to source top notch coaching personnel and it's seemingly happening at Punt Rd also. Perceived key assistants such as Caracella & Rutten consequently didn’t leave any bearing on our on field performance, therefore its hoped neither Leppitsch and McRae will either
Kingsley and Caracella both were there together in 2019. Hoping we can get an ex tiger back on board. But I'm sure club will make right decision!It's quite funny, when Caracella left there was a lot of folks who were a bit miffed that Adam Kingsley came on board. Dimma was at pains to acknowledge his input into our improved contested output.
I love what Fly has brought to us over the years & wish him all the best at the Dawks.
But now we have the opportunity to bring in some new ideas & input.
Hopefully Fly gains further experience to bring back to us. After all he has been under some pretty fantastic coaches so far & Clarko will only add to that.
I feel Clarkson is on his last legs and is their list manager. They really haven't developed, they picked "superstars' but have not performed, he is surrounding himself with the best to survive. but they are along way back. Sure they will win a few, but they have too many holes.I'm a big rap for McRae. reckon he is a senior coach in the making.
He will go to the Hawks and learn some new tricks under Clarkson and develop his coaching resume. The move will make him a better coach and he'll be primed to take over from Hardwick in a number of years time when Dimma is tired of winning so many premierships.
