    I think we have got to the point where it is no longer a requisite to have played the game to coach in the big league. For example, John Fletcher was CEO of the Logistics company Brambles for many, many years, and no he has lead the turn around of Coles Myer, the retail giant. Both industries are completely different.

    Now, let's assume that there ARE people out there who have not played the game, yet are extremely intelligent, and are very knowledgeable about the game. For example, do you think the commentator Tim Lane would make a good coach? Suprisingly, I believe that he would? All it would take for it to happen would be a club to take the risk, and Mr. Lane to show moral courage and bravery and risk public ridicule.

    Um, who are you?

    And welcome to Victoria by the way. Here we talk about crazy, stupid and roundly insane matters; so your proposition slots in well, for it fits all the above criteria. :)

    I think it is a good topic for debate.

    Your ideas intrigue me, Zinergy. Would you happen to be Triple M fan? I find they generally have more intelligence than people who listen to silly left-wing radio stations.

    I prefer Nova, but to listen to the footy, I prefer 3AW.
