    Yep, except he did anoint Goodwin to replace him, which looks a poor choice.

    Not sure that was entirely his call though , surely there was others involved with signing that one off .

    Not entirely, but from memory his autobiographical coaching manifesto book suggested his contribution was substantive.

    It appears Gary Rohan is turning in some Swans-like performances for the Cats now too

    Nine things we learned: The top two recruits of 2019 are Lions - AFL.com.au

    Geelong's scoring issues in the past five weeks are certainly not resting on the shoulders of Gary Rohan, particularly as he missed one of those games through injury. But there's no doubt the Cats would like to have him back at the form he showed in the first half of the season. The former Sydney speedster kicked 20 goals in his first nine games at Geelong, and became a key element to a new-look forward set up that powered the Cats to the top of the ladder. But in the past seven games he has played, Rohan has managed only three goals, including one from just six disposals against Hawthorn in Sunday's loss. His unpredictability, sheer pace and goal sense became a feature of the Cats' forward half in a breakout start to the season, and they need his spark back as they set up for September. - Callum Twomey

    Cats fans will turn on Gary like Swans fans did. Does to his eye-catching potential, he's an easy scapegoat when times are tough.

    (I was a little anti-gary too).

    +1 .....I was just about to post something similar when I saw that article....my thoughts were 'same old, same old'. Sort of confirms that for all his potential, Gary will be inconsistent and go missing in pressure games (and finals) until he retires.....and that we did the right thing by letting him go.

    He is often summed up as a 'confidence player'......which I've always taken as code for being 'mentally weak'. It's a real pity because he has always had the physical ability to tear games apart.

    Just noticed 100 NEAFL games for Jack Hiscox. I always rated him, thought he could've become a regular for us but obviously the club thought differently and delisted him 2016.

    The AFL was way beyond Jack's ability. Glad to see that he enjoys playing footy enough to continue playing in the NEAFL. He's been available to be drafted by any club since delisting, but 18 clubs didn't think he was worth a second chance.

    I know. I remember seeing him run and carry in NEAFL thinking he's going to be good but:
    a) Big jump from NEAFL to AFL
    b) Need more than just one attribute to make it

    He was recently left out of one Sydney Uni NEAFL squad.

    His disposal was atrocious. His one strength, speed, was never used in the AFL games he played.
