Former president of St Kilda Rod Butterss, a friend of Blight knocker Grant Thomas, had gone on record as saying Blight had lost his zeal for coaching by the time he came to St Kilda in 2001.
I couldn't give a rat's tossbag whether he thought I could coach, or anybody thought I could coach.
Or could play.
I don't care. Have an opinion, we all have an opinion.
But when he talked about commitment, to St Kilda, for the time I was there, that's absolute garbage, made by a very naive person.
Say I couldn't coach, Stephen, say I made the wrong call. say I said something to the wrong, say I said something bad ... all I did was handle some egos, try to handle some egos in a very bad football club, that had won two games the year before.
Stephen Quartermaine: He said that you weren't good with the kids, that you were better with a mature list?
Blight: Oh yeah, so in Adelaide and Geelong, both very young teams, we came from nowhere to playing grand finals, with young teams! C'mon, that a wank!
