There's nothing wrong with taking action per se, but it has to be the right action - too often we take the wrong action, hence our problems.
That fact that its independent is a big tick for me, get the people doing it right and it could be the best thing that happens to our club.

I agree, but I'd be curious to know the terms of reference and who's paying.

I'd imagine its one of two things. He is a board member so he might have sought approval from the board for the club to pay for it. Or, he is paying for it out of his own kick as many board members contribute financially to the club. As for the terms of reference, not sure.

Having thought about it a bit the timing is a little awkward...but probably necessary.
If they're going to cull assistants they need to do it shortly as they have to be let known if they have a spot for next year (around early August From memory)
Any change to the senior coaching position needs to be done ASAP after our season finishes so they can be ready for pre-season (and perhaps have an input in drafting).
Football department admin guys need to be ready for trading/drafting.


The problem of course is that Teague and his assistants now have to operate in an environment where they not only have to deal with the on-field issues, but they need to do so with one eye over their shoulder...an added burden.
They need to do so with the knowledge that there is some player discontent over aspects of the game plan and selections.
They'll be second guessing themselves.
If Teague and the others were feeling pressure, it now becomes more intense.
How the players respond will be very interesting and tell a lot about unity.

Sayers has reportedly already met with captains Patrick Cripps and Sam Docherty as part of an unofficial review, and has received negative feedback about elements of Teague and his coaching staff’s work.

“At least one player has talked about the lack of clarity in the team’s game plan, while another questioned elements of team selection,” the report said.

Essendon great Matthew Lloyd argued the review should encompass more than just Teague and his coaching stuff.

“I think everything should be up on the table, including the captains,” he told 3AW’s Sportsday.

“It’s so much more than Teague, and so much more than Cripps.”

Reporter Sam McClure added: “There have been some concerning answers (to Sayers), particularly from some of the players about divisions beginning to emerge between certain coaches and certain players.”

That first sentence and last sentence are particularly disturbing IMO.

Agree PP....doesn't bode well at all.

There'll be plenty of "unnamed sources" etc coming out now. Flogs like Cornes and Tom Browne and Barrett will have a field day with this.

Yes, if the various participants don't trust each other, and don't have the maturity to handle the review properly, this could easily cause deep divisions.

Bolton busted his nut trying to achieve unity and create a Hawthorn-like culture. He may end up feeling pretty vindicated when all this is done.

Of course it's very early days, even before the review has started, but from the rumblings and rumours, it seems like a whole bunch of cliques with no unity and no control at the top.

Should never have gave a nice guy and former player like Teague the job, it's heartbreaking when we sack them.

Need to hire a prick like Brad Scott where we don't care what happens in the end it's just business.
