Andrew Hayes/Mark Mickan

Post by Lee Harradine on Wed Aug 05, 2015 9:18 am

Andrew Hayes has been answering questions about his knee reconstruction on Talking Footy SA.

His answer to a question about our Coach was interesting and is as follows:


Mark is very intelligent and completely selfless. He's the type of bloke you can go up and have a conversation with about anything which i completely wasn't use to and most importantly he listens to the other coaches and even the players, another thing i wasn't use to. Everybody listens to what the coach says but Mark has a good balance of voicing his opinion and plans and also getting the players point of view. There has been times during the past couple of years where players have had fairly serious injuries and all of the players are constantly updated by text or email as to whats going on and how the player is going, whether this is from Mark or Andrew Marks its only a small thing but it is a nice touch. When i did my knee i was getting constant calls from Mickers and Marksy asking not only how the knee was going but how i was dealing with the whole situation. When i did my shoulder I don't think i heard from anyone (bar teammates) for at least 2 weeks. No player is bigger than a club but the most important part of a club is the players.
He is not the best coach I've had because he's a decent bloke, he's the best because he's not stubborn with his ideas and game plan, if something needs to change it will and thats what makes it obvious that its about winning for the football club not about him.

Andrew sounds like a really top bloke.

Sorry but I have to ask the really hard question though....

Does a "decent bloke" like MM have it in him to delist Andrew at the end of his current contract on the basis his body just doesnt seem durable enough to cope with SANFL footy??

That's a really interesting question billrobs. I guess it might not quite be as black and white as that, i.e maybe they ask him to take a dramatic pay cut if he wants to continue.
Great to read in Andrew's post that the club is doing some of these things so well, i.e. communication with the players and looking after their welfare. Not only is it the right thing to do by the players, it will only help the club by reflecting well on it.
