On the flip side, what would the average AFL first year assistant be on compared to Bass' current salary?

Depending on what is negotiated not much difference between a first year assistant coach and a senior full time SANFL coach. However the AFL industry has a great capacity for paying over the odds if they really want you.


Figured as much, which is why he would be hesitant to move interstate and upset a family for the sake of little or no extra coin.

But as mentioned above Norwood would have to have some sort of time frame to know his answer and I'm sure both parties are aware of where they stand.
PAFC. Forever.

Bassett was on trade radio and mentioned he had a job at North Melbourne for 24 hours before it was taken from him. He didnt go into reasons why the job was taken from him.

Last thing that was said by one of the commentators was a former Adelaide Crow is to be announced as the new Norwood coach mid next week. Interesting

Maybe he was being as indecisive as he was on the radio the other night, and North wanted someone who really wanted the job. I have no idea why it was taken away, but that could be it.

If you have someone keen, and someone just looking at their options, which one would you take?

The other night it seemed like he still hadn't decided if he even wanted to leave Adelaide.

Pretty sure he'd accepted a job with NM but the prez then decreed the offer was too high and needed to be reduced. If the reduced offer didn't meet Bass' requirements he had every right to knock it back..

Ummm, you can't reduce an employment offer once presented and then accepted.

Bass would have every right to demand the terms of the original offer, and the employer is bound to them.

So did he knock it back, or was it taken from him?

Vauguely remember hearing he had an offer of $150,000 to be an assisstant coach but they then decided that was too much and offered $80,000 which he declined. Think it was in the paper

So he still had the job, but didn't like the new terms. It wasn't "taken from him". It was 100% his decision to not sign the contract. And he would've had the job for more than 24 hours if he wanted it.

Obviously he was initially offered a contract way above his worth.

Doubt any assistant coaches in the AFL would be on that wage and I certainly wouldnt move my family intertate for $80,000 when he is probably on close to that at Norwood.

Harsh. If you get offered something, you expect those terms to remain.

Yes, and it's illegal to withdraw them once accepted ...

He will end up somewhere on his terms anyway so why would he take a reduced offer.

He will just keep winning SANFL premierships :( :(

My guess would be that it was an in principle verbal agreement, but the terms and/or value were then altered prior to signing on the dotted line.

If he didn't sign it, it would be considered up for negotiation still. If he told them he'd sleep on it, they have every right to change it when he comes back to them.

Yup, I would suggest he knocked it back, and I wouldn't blame him one bit for doing so during a process that resembles amateur hour.

He won't go to an AFL club unless his worth is met.

Whatever we all think of his personal characteristics, the bloke is a super coach and is worth a place in the AFL system.

LOL You'll go a long way in the business world :lol:

If two parties thrash out at the negotiation table and come up with a set of conditions and level of remuneration that is agreed upon, then the paperwork presented is significantly different, you consider that good business practice?
