At the end of the day, he got the club to 6th in the second year as a standalone club, winning one final away from home. Not sure what the board or supporters expected, but, I'm sure they would've taken that at the start of the year. On win/loss ratio he should stay, not sure what the relationship with the board is like, or if they maybe get a better offer from a more experienced coach, there the only factors i can see stopping him from going on next year.

[quote="theobserver"]VFA, why would a highly paid and well regarded AFL assistant coach want to take a shitty paying VFL job? Let's be realistic here.[/quote] To tick the box 'Has coached his own side' on the resume`

I know Observer.. look earlier in the thread :) [quote="ons"]No to McGuane 'vfa'. I rate Chris Bond, he has previously coached Werribee, if the club is looking at coaches like Libba, I reckon Bondy should also come into consideration. The coaching changes at AFL level have thrown up a lot names.[/quote] I was using the 'tick the box' thing as a more general comment for AFL assistant coaches yet to coach their own side.

How has Danny Sexton performed in his role at Casey and St Kilda since moving up from the TAC comp?

Danny was very good with the Scorpions. For a person on the St. Kilda payroll, not the Scorpions he slid straight in and was fantastic in a development role for Both the St. Kilda youngsters and Scoprions youngsters. Had a Matchday role, and treated everyone equally. Handled himself very very well, and will be more than capable of coaching at this level.

Saade was a great player, and deserves a lot of respect for his career. What he forgot to add to his comment, however, was that no stand alone club would ever win a premiership with him as coach. I would suggest he has little understanding of any other stand alone situation than his two years as coach, given his comments. If you merged Port and Frankston's lists you would have a team more than capable of winning a premiership. Of course, given that only 4 teams have won flags in the new VFL, it is a very difficult task and even a team with such a strong list would require a large slice of luck. What prevents a stand alone team fielding such a talented and deep list is the salary cap. Stand alone teams have approx $80K more to spend than alligned teams. Given they have to replace 12 AFL listed players, do the maths and you see they have $350-400 per game for each of those players. To recruit a player the standard of a Daniel Ward, Shannon Motlop, Guy Rigoni, Mark Jamar etc that helped Sandringham to their premierships, you require AT LEAST $600 per game and more likely $1000-1500. Until this blatant handicap is addressed, a stand alone club needs to build a list over a number of years to reach the level needed to compete for a flag. Tassie were at that stage before they had a brain explosion and decided to align with North. As we all know, the incredibly strong culture the club had built is now destroyed and the Devils are years away from achieving that again. Frankston was approaching the level required in 2006 but losing 10-15 senior players has effectively put the Dolphins in rebuilding phase. That is why I think it is remarkable that Ghazi made that comment after two years stand alone, with effectively two completely different line-ups in each of those years, and very disappointing that Port would be seeking alignments when finances arent a concern. I would also note that in their last year aligned with North, Port were thrashed in the second semi final, just as they were this year.

Do you think he is capable if learning from mistakes and gaining another Senior role in the VFL?? and also would he be any benefit for an assistants role with another club?
