According to Caro tonight - "All the assistant coaches are leaving and Adam Kingsley has put his hand up for the Collingwood job".

This doesn't make any sense at all. For Caro to say something like that she must  know something.

Also every one of the assistants except Andrew McQ and Clarke who was near the bench was standing next to dimma at the VFL, so there can't be that much bad blood.

Opportunity! Of course they're leaving. More money and bigger chances.

If they want to be senior coaches why would they stay here with the most successful coach of the era?

For memory all our ACís (with exception of Kingsley) had two year Contracts that aligned with Dimmaís contract ending. I would expect that to be relatively similar across the League to ensure minimal cost of new coaching staffs in the event that a Coach finishes at the end of any given Contract.

It just so happens that the middle of the contracts came when the Footy Dept. Cap was drastically reduced, which makes it hard to increase costs for the next Contracts if the majority of ACs are out of contract.

I would be surprised if they all go. Iíd expect one of Maric / X/ Lonergan to stay at the least.

I wonder if Dimma has taken all the soft cap $ now he has a ex missus to pay out and a new one that also wants a new Brighton pad

The midfield and stoppage coach can leave now. We're not protecting the defensive side at stoppage allowing the opposition to waltz out the front. You can't defend with your mids set up standing forward of the ball at throw-ins and ball-ups.

Likewise the forwards coach given our smalls are never front and centre allowing the opposition to rebound under no pressure from our F50.

It's pretty clear that tactics & game day coaching were never Harwick's strengths and that he needs quality assistants around him in order to thrive... :shh

So, Leppa is special comments, the same Leppa who was with us for 3 flags....

No other commentators seem to touch on this.

'Leppa, you helped win 3 flags at the Tiges, what's going through Dimmas head right now'

Has he put Richmond questions off-limits?  :shh

We have the same soft cap as everyone else, why are we losing assistants to be assistants at other clubs?

It's pretty natural assistants to leave successful clubs. Hawks had a heap rotating through. Cats and Swans only ones to keep some long term but even then the likes of Dew left for better opportunities.

The last time we cleared out assistants to give Dimma new ideas and direction we won a flag.
Go Tigers!

Letting go Leppa was silly I'm not buying he needed a breake very poor decision.

Andrew McQualter. Assistant coach, midfield/offensive.
Adam Kingsley. Assistant coach, midfield/stoppage.

These 2 have been carried by the likes of Caracalla and Truck. Now that they have left they have exposed as being duds.

Their performances have been equally as bad as the players.

On Leppa I don't buy he just left. We probably offered him peanuts so he said FO. For a guy wanting a break from the industry he does seem to still like it  :shh
