Eagles skills were so poor that after Mitchell no name honed their kicking they could only win the cup. Seriously, I thought no one would get close to matching the Worst for absolute drival but after the last few months and just reading the first two articles on Clement and Lecras dockerland is now running a very close second. Wake up to yourselves. Signing out !!!

On your way out, pick up one of the spelling books and one of grammar books.

Have someone read them to you.

Snail, irrespective of where he comes from and irrespective of how many cups he's won, how do you know he can add a skill element to the team?

Seriously, what is his coaching record like? How many players has he developed?

Unless you can answer those questions in an overwhelmingly positive fashion then why wouldn't you query his appointment? Getting appointed to a vital role (and a hefty salary) on the basis of zero experience as a coach is a bit of a wing and a prayer effort.

Freo already has enough Ass Coaches that seemingly cannot coach, even though they played in successful teams.

We have been told we have a professional club, yet we act in an unprofessional manner over and over again. It's well past time that this sort of 'management' position was openly questioned.

where is the evidence that Le Cras has been offered $250K to $350K/“a hefty salary”?

jezzaargh, I think you'll find that's the standard salary range for new Ass Coaches.

Senior Ass Coaches tend to get somewhat more than that.

It's one of the reasons that some clubs exceed their soft spending cap on off field expenditure

so, there is no actual information circulating on what the offer might be in this instance?

No specific information of course. He hasn't actually accepted the position so salary negotiations could still be in progress.

Just to help you out here, according to the AFL in 2011 (the last time I can find with this level of detail) the average Ass Coach was paid around the $125k mark. In the 8 years since, I'm pretty sure that hasn't gone down. in fact, I doubt you would get an Ass Coach who was actually worth his / her while for around the $125 - $150k mark because they could get a better deal elsewhere and clubs do compete for the best talent.

Salaries of around the 200 - 300k mark are often bandied around in the media when new Ass Coaches are appointed to clubs and let's face it, no one who could be earning pretty good money with a TV gig would turn it over for a job playing peanuts.

Clubs generally have a maximum of 10 Ass Coaches but usually less (AFL) and with the average (AFL estimate) of around $700k for senior coaches, a spend of $3 million would give all Ass Coaches around $300K on average. Some will get more, some will get less but nobody is going to go home hungry.

Stewey Dew certainly didn't - and he's upped his consumption of benefits tenfold.

Polly, not sure many Ass coaches would risk being in the coaches box with Stewie, when the ham & salad rolls run out.

I thought he wouldn’t be an actual assistant coach.. just come to help with some kicking skills like Ben Dixon or Matthew Lloyd did.. just a bit of a part time gig?

David Hale retired in 2015 after winning the grand final, a couple of weeks later he was announced as an assistant coach with us.

Did people get this up in arms about his appointment? Or because he played in a ''winning system' under clarko it was all ok?? I can't remember the forums from that far back..

Roughy has taken up a position with the Saints, would people be reacting the same way if he was joining freo as a skills coach? Or is it just because lecrae played for the other mob??
