NH: Crows have sacked Brenton Sanderson

Bit of talk that it might've been "him or me" from Dangerfield when he was pressed on what would keep him in Adelaide?

About time, he wasn't up to it.

I'd like to see Bomber Thompson brought over.

There's the old saying "there's two types of coaches, those who have been sacked, and those who are about to be sacked"

He offered a lot of promise in 2012 and took them to the pre-season cup, finished second with 17/5 and was unlucky not to be in the GF.

Last two seasons were 10 & 12 in 2013 and 11 & 11 in 2014, so certainly not a disgraceful effort, but Talia made comments after winning his B&F award about the players needing to believe in themselves and be hungry.

With Fagan the new CEO announced yesterday, he may not have been involved in the decision, but it looks like a Crows jalopy has been put into the workshop for a bit more than a grease up and oil change.

"Chairman Rob Chapman, directors Andrew Payze and Mark Ricciuto, head of football David Noble and Sanderson were involved in the post-season analysis, which came after players, including key forward Taylor Walker, reportedly criticised the coach and some of his assistants in their exit interviews."

seems unlikely to sack a coach without a replacement lined up.........most likely replacement involved in afl finals........

Sacrificed, no other way I see it. How many top players did they lose to other clubs and how did injuries affect this team?

He can coach, not his fault they missed finals...
