The player reaction to the Kirt announcement was nice to see. That said, White's comments were completely silly--he didn't cast a wide net or examine several candidates, not in four days--and I was expecting something a bit more inspirational from the new coach himself. He's been fortuitously handed a massive opportunity for a coach with his rather thin coaching CV--and let's hope he can make the most of it.
The fear of a mass player exodus to FSU was the main motivator for the decision to promote Kirt, IMO. There’s a ton of talent on this team and they want to keep as much of it together as possible.

I would vigorously disagree with this part of your post.

Congratulations to Head Coach Rhian Wilkinson.
Portland Thorns were victorious in their opening game of the season.
Not a bad way to start your career for the VFL.
