I think he’d be good at full forward for you blokes at this stage of his career, where do you see him playing?

Let's not ruin the man's confidence by plonking him at FF and kicking it on his head and to his feet. He played the best footy of his career at Collingwood on the wing as a link up player.

I agree that he would be a big boost to our midfield as a link up player. We may be able to give better service to the forward line in that role. However, he could also be our CHF giving the midfield a shorter option into the forward line instead of bombing it in long and hoping.
I can see him working well with Bush in the forward line. We will still need a small forward to kick goals.
Still no confirmation from the club but I have heard that he is a lock but some doubt on whether he plays. He wants to play I believe but he will have a busy schedule which may be a problem fitness wise. Have to wait and see.
Welcome home to a great club man.

His confidence is going to be ruined coaching our futrures and Colts unless there is zone change
Victorians still laugh at West Aussies because of the way we bailed out the vfl and then allowed it to be called it the AFL!

Smokey, does he have injury concerns?

No. I believe the job he is taking on is pretty full on and may need some juggling. Only 24 hours in a day and he cannot be everyplace at once.
As I understand, he wants to play. I don't know whether it is him or the footy department that have some concerns. Hopefully they work it out.
I hope he can play. A 1 point classy recruit.

Don't have a problem with him coaching the the Colts.
Get him help with other stuff.

Thinking about this over night.
This is only my humble opinion.
It makes no sense to me wanting him to play for us.
And burdening him down so that he can't.
Not sure where the concerns are coming from given he wants to play.
Again, I think it may be a rumour from a "reliable source" lol.
Allow him to coach the Colts.
Given his work ethic I am sure that would not over burden him.
It has been achieved before elsewhere.
He doesn't need to coach the Futures that can be dome by someone else suitably qualified.
Maybe appoint him Futures Coach mentor.
If he does the odd session with the kids so be it.

This achieves 2 things.
1. Helps him with his coaching CV.
2. Allows us to pay him accordingly.

Get the paper bags out and start filling them!!!!
Not all that difficult.
