Default Are Geelong making a mistake in giving Chris Scott a new contract extension?

It's been reported that Chris Scott is on the verge of signing a new three year contract. Do you agree that it's the right decision by the footy club?

He has a premiership to his name. But it was won on the back of a list build from Bomber Thompson, and a few Geelong legends who had already won two before. Even though they lost Ablett the year before, it wasn't like the list was built from scratch. The list was still full of Hall of Famers and Superstars.

His finals record hasn't been good from 2012 onwards, and players like Caddy, Smedts (now gone) Motlop, Duncan, Guthrie, Horlin-Smith, Murdoch just haven't taken the next step in their development under him. Is this a result of the players not buying into the game plan?

Is it even necessary for Geelong to give him a new deal when they could wait til season's end and address things then?

Thanks for the post. Both Scott's are under pressure BUT not as much as Rodney Eade who has been a dismal failure wherever he has been. Same can be said about Collingwood's golden boy. Nathan Buckley took over from Malthouse with a good group of players only to plummet downwards. Ross Lyon is doing the same as he raped St Kilda & walked out leaving them in a poor situation. Freo dumped Harvey for Ross who got that squad to the GF. Suddenly they are "rebuilding" & crashed last year. They thought they drafted well but have failed to get off the ground. I believe Ross & Nathan are NOT up to the walk of success but will walk the plank.
