SA Coaching Directors and JDO's

So I was at MARS last night as a neutral spectator and noticed Michael Rogers the Norwood Coaching Director and JDO walking around.
What are his qualifications, and background?
And what are the other Coaching Directors around SA qualifications and how would we rank them from best to worst?

Rogers was a disgrace on Tuesday night at U23's and the committee at Norwood should do something about him. Suspend him for a few weeks or as he is a full time staff member 1st warning for bring the club into disrepute. Embarrassed to be apart of Norwood with him in charge. First class loser MR.

138, what a stupid post.

281, don't embarrass yourself by pretending to be a part of Norwood.

283 said it all ^

281, I think you'll find that actually, YOU are the disgrace. If you really were a Norwood person, why not lodge a complaint to the club instead of bitching and taking cheap shots on a forum?

That 23's game should've been handled better by everyone, ESPECIALLY the referees AND the referee in charge. It's all well and good to issue a statement to the coaches about how to communicate with the referees, but how about sending it to your own referees as well?

Surely Forestville people are happy with their choice now being elevated to head coach of the Lightning. Seems they picked the right person

So, why was his behaviour a disgrace?

FYI

Head referee apologised to MR post game for the game refs poor form

MR politely asked for a discussion during a time out, for which the tech first was for.

Head referee did not. Head referee was arguing all the way to the front door. Another senior ref apologised.

Head referee stuffed up by passing on to the basketball community the latest (be nice to refs) memo. He forgot to pass it onto his own refs.
U23 head ref apologised, later head ref agreed he was wrong for not passing it on to the refs as well.

If titles are incorrect then I apologise.

7 tech fouls against one team is a disgraceful ref, not a disgraceful team/coach.

7 techs would just about be an abandonment ?

if the performance of the Norwood junior program and quality of coaching is anything to go by then quite obviously MR has enough problems .
I hear he is moving on anyway .

Intriguing that 2 weeks in a row MR complained to the head referee. And both times he got sent packing! From what I saw from last Tuesdays incident, MR go tossed, then made a big song and dance trying to find the head referee. With 7 technical fouls in the game, surely there is something else to this other than the refereeing was poor? Norwood must have done something to warrant them?

Classic anonymous poster getting facts incorrect ^

I also attended the game the previous week and Rogers certainly did not complain to the head referee and was certainly not sent packing. Clue up or get out. Idiot.

AK-47 is correct, I was there also.

Norwood's new ABL coach was the one who was thrown out the week before and he was only there as a spectator.

His behaviour left a lot to be desired.

What is going on at Norwood? Is anybody going to sort these people out?

"His behaviour left a lot to be desired"

Are you sure you were there anonymous? Cooper calmly called out to the ref as he ran past "How was that not a travel?" and the referee went ahead a ejected two other spectators. Cooper told the referee that it was him that made the comment but when the referee continued to demand the other two spectators leave, Cooper walked himself and went and sat in the stands.

The other referee apologised immediately and the referee in question apologised to the two spectators after the game. I fail to see how you could question Cooper's behaviour when you clearly did not hear the conversation or see what happened.

AK-47: You said 'Cooper calmly called out to the referee'

Umm, if he was there as a spectator why is he calling out to the referee in the first place? Shouldn't he let the coach be the one to ask questions?

Two spectators were ejected as well? This just keeps getting better.

Anonymous 445636,

You've never made a comment to a referee before when not coaching a game? My goodness aren't you just a model spectator then.

Anonymous 445638,

No. Two spectators were MISTAKENLY ejected by a referee. Cooper took the blame and walked on his own terms and the two spectators, who received apologies later, remained. Sorry that the truth prevented this from becoming a better story for you.
