Ross the Boss told Collingwood no thanks, doesn't like the way the club is currently run.
Unsure if true but a couple of coaches have told them no thanks.
He doesnt like how the Pies are run, but he will consider going to Carlton? mmmmm. sounds like Heath Shaw might be on the money.

Bad enough that Fly might get the gig.... Tom Morris either reporting/guessing/making:poop:up that Leppa becomes his senior assistant... yuk!
Interesting if so. Of course, Fly was successful and a proven top development coach with us, and has that kind of role at the Filth now. He has a lot of credits in the bank in that respect. But has never had a senior gig.
Whereas Leppa has at Brisvegas and got the knife there but IMO was quite hard done by. If Fagin can take them back to repeated finals, Leppa was probably only a year or two away from finding some success. (Lions might have had a big facilities up grade that Fagin got the benefit of too?)

However, hasn't he had 2 flag successes with us as AC for Dimma? He's also a strong, successful and respected media commentator now, but don't see Fly really great in that capacity.

IOW, I think they would have it the wrong way around; Leppa for HC surely has more credentials. Possibly a consideration for Cartoon too if he's not happy to be again an AC to Fly, given review cited defensive deficiencies. Lyon not the only candidate perhaps?

Rutten/Blake at Essendon and Fly/Leppa at Collingwood. perhaps Carlton can go with Kingsley/X

wonder why the assistants of the greatest home and away coach C.Scott aren't in demand?
Yep but I can give you an X. What about if they entice Grigga away from the Moggies to be Kingsley's AC? Get the best intel of both top clubs.

Well no one would hire Knights. And the others are all Geelong nuffies like Scarlett.

If the Pies had any brains, and the Blues for that matter they would be headhunting Craig McRae. Fly has an impeccable playing and coaching CV, they could do a lot worse.
Pardom me for quoting my self.

I'm pleased for Fly he deserves to show the AFL world how good a coach and person he is. The only downside is, he's too good for a club like Collingwood :(

Spot on, T-Man
Fly can cut his teeth at Collingwood and can then come over to RFC when Dimma finally hangs up his coaching hat.

If it wasn't for us. He would be cleaning plates at Nandos.
*smile* i hate that Hardwick does the hard yards and these flogs get the job offers.
Especially going to Collingwood makes me angrier

Yes, it's no certainty just yet. Probably Fly wants to know what his spend is and sort almost all his appointments to know what bases he has covered or not, with the 'delicate' CFC salary cap situation. But looks almost certain, regrettably.

Its hard to list managed a football club when you have No cap space and no picks in a draft.
Whoever takes over is walking into the destruction left over by Dkhead Guy and Buckley.
how Buckley gets past any scrutiny has me fked.
He wanted Treloar, he wanted Beams, he wasn't going to let Grundy leave.
The damage caused by these 2, it could easily take a good 5-10 years to recover.
Im not convinced the kids they got a A grade material. They stacked up on kids to keep the mob at bay.
Good luck fixing it.
That list is Wallace like after 08.
