    Well clearly the committee rightfully felt differently that expecting kids to film a session 3 days a week over Christmas and New Years was too much of a chore.

    Yeah you can, this wasn't a less structed exercise session when since we have some free time go and kick the ball (not that all holidays are just lazing around somewhere). I don't see any of the top clubs getting their players to film three sessions a week over Christmas and New Years. I'd be surprised if any of the top clubs in Sydney or Melbourne are doing it as well.

    This isn't just a case of packing a ball in with your luggage so they can kick it around

    This is the boring extreme story but you will put in enough effort and hours to get to the level that YOU want.

    Does a TD get his kids to a level he wants, or the committee wants, or the the kids want or just enough to win the comp? Theres no point in getting above first place in NNSW NPL is there?
    You make a good point. Both the committee / TD / Coaching staff should be transparent around what their aims are for the club (and youth) and set the standard for both parents and players from when they sign / first day at training. I'm sure there was a reasonable middle ground that could have been had without either side going nuclear. After all its the players that end up with the raw end of the deal from the drama.

    Anyone else heard that Doug West has left Magic as TD and signed up with South Cardiff as TD? Someone told me this and another person said that's what they heard as well. Seems odd that you would leave a TD role at an NPL team to go and do the same role at a NL1 team.

    Unless of course Magic just wasn't a good place to be a non-Macedonian TD

    Or he got asked to leave?

    Lots of non-macedonians at magic that seem to be doing just fine, and some that also have excellent coaches as well.

    I also heard that the Jets 15's coach left and took over someone elses coaching spot unceremoniously in the 18's Possibly at South Cardiff as well? after he'd put the team together and had been coaching them.

    So logistically how is it feasible to see this competition running in early March given COVID? Do we expect to see a smooth operation of games by this stage of our COVID lifestyle?

    So is the 1st TD the same as the last TD named? Why arenít we allowed to name the 1st TD but cheese man has named the TD and Club of 2nd one? From what Iíve heard the Magic TD didnít do much anyway and just collected payments. Donít think the guy has much loyalty, heís had what 4 clubs in 4 years or something?

    Different TD, but the Magic TD was asked to leave he didn't resign. The other TD might be the one you mean, he has had 3 clubs in 2 years (one he was at twice)

    I know one of the players at South Cardiff 18s, according to him, a number of players (including ones that had been at the club for years) refused to return because they didn't want the coach again (or be coached by him if coming up from 16s). He himself was considering leaving for another club because the other coach wasn't any good. As soon as this Jets coach got announced he stayed and from all reports has been much happier with the level of training and coaching provided.

    Hi all
    If there's anyone on this NPL thread who's actively involved with submitting their club's Limited Licence - Multi function (am0530) form, please PM me.

    Cheers
