The AFL just keep coming up with the winning plays.
What better person to market and sell the game of AFL to Sydney than Big Kev....and not a bad coach either. If anyone can get Greater Western Sydney interested in AFL he's the man.
His love of the game is contagious and he's an "ideas man". With the big difference being that his "ideas" work.
I thought something may have been a bit suspicious last year when he "pulled out" of the Richmond job.
Great result....I only hope that Sydney learn to understand the lingo of "marshmellows, seagulls and aliens".
I saw Paul Osborne on "The 7:30 Report" last night commenting on the Sheeds appointment and had to smile to myself. If Paul Osborne is the brains behind the NRL fight against AFL in Sydney, then I'm sure Kev will be quietly grinning from ear to ear. Just a word of advice Paul - mock and underestimate Kevin Sheedy and the AFL at your own peril. He didn't win an international award for lateral thinking by sticking his head in a forward pack for 15 years.
Another brilliant decision Andrew.
