Everyone ok with coach of the year awards?

Annon. Why would people not be ok with Coach of the Year awards or are you questioning those that won them? I don't see a problem with either coach winning. Well done to the both of them

Well done to Tommy & all at Eagles again for another great year

It was supposed to be amusing after the massive debate about NPL coach of the year. Just a bit of banter, nothing more.

Nothing to do with your story Walter.
I note on Facebook that There is a Victorian Coaches Conference for all coaches in December this year.
Nothing for Tassie again , or should I say as per usual.
And they expect coaches to maintain their points for their licence ?
What a f......joke.
No wonder the game is in a mess .
