He'll stick around. I believe he really wants to see our club get through this shit and enjoy success. He's too f****** good to let go, so coming up with a meaningful role is what all the discussion is about IMO.

Where's the mail coming from?

I was at dinner with him last week and he said he wanted to be a head coach or nothing.

I hope someone is keeping a register of all the wild predictions from our illustrious football press that have failed to materialise.

Seem to recall somewhere that Bomber and Hirdy's relationship had disintegrated, that Bomber would only ever stay if he had the top spot, that Bomber had falling out of favour with the Board, that the players were disenchanted with Bomber etc. etc. etc.

Add to this Hirdy's sacking, Licha and Benny H leaving and you wonder if, believing all this shit, whether there would have been a football team left for ASADA to serve notice on.
Too far for Baker now he's on to it, now he’s got it, OPEN GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Dons are in front by one point at the 8 minute mark

No. There was a bloke in the corner pissing in his mouth though. I thought it might have been you WOBWOB.

Apparently he's gone back and forth about staying a few times now... but this time it seems a lit more solid, hope he's 100% committed if he does stay

Well it wasn't me "name dropping". Something you have accused others of in here. Now I hate to interrupt your afternoon tea with Molly Meldrum, but did you get so excited during your weekly felch, you forgot all about it?

Interesting perspective from Rohan Connelly on SEN on Thursday arvo.

He reckons the 'AFL media' and 'AFL insiders' have gone feral in trashing Bomber since the end of the season - inside stories abound about his unreliability, missing appointments, incoherent utterances (e.g. his speech at the EFC B&F) his all-round general 'kookiness' etc. etc. Connelly believes it a concerted campaign to make sure he doesn't get the Suns job - when up until a couple of weeks ago - he was a shoe-in. The Suns brand is sacred to the AFL and they don't want Bomber. The AFL evidently is not happy that he got to coach this year and is now being sought by clubs to continue coaching.......

What is most interesting is that this is now being said publicly and that it is the AFL that is being outed as the pricks that they are. Connelly is brave enough to say it - see if others follow.

Gring can correct me if I'm wrong but I feel that was a tongue in cheek reference to the B&F?

Interesting.

Caro started the "AFL sources" crap about him being mad or whatever and then others have mentioned that there's "talk" about it. :roll:

Although Connolly did have an article last week where he said that he was at the B&F and Bomber was sounding mad.

James Hird says his relationship with Mark Thompson remains intact and wants the two-time premiership coach to remain at Essendon in 2015.

from the same article...."Mark and I will speak very soon but we haven't spoken yet, he was on a holiday and I was working pretty busily at study ...."

I saw this interview on TV and am pretty sure Hird said he hadn't spoken to Bomber for a couple of months (seems to be backed up by the quote above about being busy studying)
Doesn't sound like much of a relationship to me :-k

Surely the AFL directed the Suns to not employ Bomber as Senior Coach.

For a moment there it looked like he was a monty for the job, then all of a sudden Gold Coast came out with "we are not interested in Bomber for the role".

Screams of AFL interference.

I mean for f*** sake they have a 3 time Premiership Coach (the 2011 Geelong Premiership was far more Bomber's doing than Chris Scott's doing) publically announcing he wants to stay as a Senior Coach and they are not interested? But they then go an employ a bloke who had 10 years and 2 different clubs who had very good sides at his disposal who still could not win a Flag because they want a "proven" senior coach.

Well f*** me, Brett Ratten coached a very average Carlton team to several finals campaigns...surely under their criteria that would make Ratts a "proven" senior coach as well?!

Saw in todays paper that Bomber has refused to pay his $30000. fine which is due to be paid on the 31st October.

Sticking it up the AFL. The Good..

The Not so good, I heard a rumour that he has been approached to replace Eade at the filth. Holy shit I couldn't in my wildest dreams see him in a filth shirt walking out on the ground with figjam. Also if he continues with his gig with Fox footy i'd refuse to watch it, seeing him in filth gear would make me sick. That's being more of a traitor than ryder.

Hope that rumour is wrong & that Hird & Bomber can solve their problems ASAP. Especially when Bomber is on record saying that he has unfinished business with this Essendon team.
