    He must be the best possible coach as he steps into the job as soon as the current one's contractual obligations are fulfilled.

    It makes the Swans succession plans look very sensible indeed.

    Nathan Buckley was picked even before he could demonstrate whether he was going to have a knack of coaching or not. He hadn't even been an assistant for a season when the announcement was made. I have heard rumours that the whole thing irked Mick big time as he thought there were several better candidates for a succession at that stage. The Collingwood footy club also put Mick in the position of teaching Buckley when trying to win premierships. I get the feeling Buckley is Micks protege whether Mices it or not.

    A panel of RWO people could coach that team at the moment. Might take a few years for him to drop.

    If I was coach of Collingwood I'd start tanking for draft picks.

    Scotty Watters & Mark Neeld are pretty impressive
