RE: Maguire Signs Until End of 2023
global:posted_in, Contracts, Recruitment & Rumours
Anyone who suggests that finals series is the only measure of success simply isn’t realistic. No new coach, hamstrung by so many overpaid, long winded contracts and with so many ageing, under performing old timers is ever going to turn the ship around in the short term. You can yell and scream all you like, but either you buy a bunch of stars with a handy bundle of salary cap cash or you wait out the contracts that are in place and incrementally alter the list player by player from the ground up - preferably bringing in high performing youth from within your own club and also from the fringes of other high performing clubs where they can’t quite get a crack. Doing this however takes patience. I gotta say, I love the way Madge is going about things. Changing again at this point means we start again with another bloke at the helm making more changes, we wait longer for a different vision to transpire and potentially go through the whole process once more. Thankfully we went with Madge over Bennett the worn out old fool.
