Why they leaving though?

Wonder if Hardwick's ego is getting too big? Yoko Ono is probably a distraction too.

But are they leaving?

I only ask because no other media outlet has run with this "story" or followed it up

Kingsley if he goes it will because he gets the Pies gig... and the way we are going especially in the area he is in charge of I'd say he is "buckleys and none" (see what i did there  ;D)

McRae, Leppa and the fitness guy last year, Rutten, Caracella a couple years earlier. All we have attracted is Kingsley and Lonergan IIRC.

Why doesn't Hardwick get the adulation Clarko does? When Nafan Noflags Buckley pulled the pin, the media carried on like it was like Phil Jackson retiring. No-one really talks about Hardwick being a coaching genius, why is that?

Letting go Leppa was silly I'm not buying he needed a breake very poor decision.
Leppa left to pursue “business interests”.

ie. had a personal anathema to Hardwick’s extra curricular activities  :shh

As many as 10 AFL clubs are understood to have already shown interest in departing Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson.

According to The Herald Sun's Jon Anderson, more than half the league have put out feelers to the four-time premiership coach's availability.

While it is yet to be known if Clarkson will be in the AFL landscape next year, clubs have reportedly seen the 53-year-old as a potential acquisition as a coaching director or mentor as well as a coach.

From the BF podcast:

We're bringing in two assistant coaches and one of them will be an ex-Tiger. Newy? Grigg? Knighter?

And this was posted in the comments:

McQualter to Carlton to join Ross Lyon with Chris Newman replacing him.

Will be interesting to see how hawthorn manage their soft cap considering the massive payout to Clarkson is included.

Swans, Essendon and Geelong etc lose no one from their footy departments but add to them.

Meanwhile at Punt rd………

Covid must only effect some clubs that let it effect them.

We spent unders on our footy department for over 30 years and paid for it with mediocre recruiting mediocre development and mediocre performances.

I can only hope the club doesn’t think spending less on footy will help us in any way. We must keep investing in quality people within the footy department and now isn’t the time to be skimping.

the RFC has completely stuffed this area up.

Its very rare that they would screw things these days but gee they dropped their guard here.

fancy letting all these blokes go and replacing them with uum noone.

reminds me of the dark days.

If CCJ & Stack weren't horny & hungry we probably would've had at least one more assistant this year... :shh

True Dio so why not pay the extra  tax?

We have the largest supporter base, and just come off a flag. Pay the extra tax and do it properly.

When has it ever worked having no support around Dimma?

They botched it, and still not convinced leppa left for a clean break.

True but as you would know $100k would cover the wage of a person in a lesser role but that was important part of the footy department. Or it would cover the cost of 2 maybe 3 match day staff
