Ex-Kangaroos coach Dean Laidley. — Laurel Irving (@laurelirving7) May 4, 2020 A furious Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton declared the leak was “appalling and unacceptable”. (The Age) Mr Laidley played 151 AFL games from 1987-97 and was an inaugural player at West Coast before joining North in 1993. The decision made the papers the very next day, but Richmond failed to get a deal done with St Kilda.

He played 99 games at Arden St, including the 1996 premiership before he succeeded Denis Pagan as North Melbourne coach in 2003. Typical. In 149 games, he led them to the finals three times before resigning during the 2009 season. He then had assistant coaching roles at three AFL clubs until 2015 and is currently coach of Melbourne suburban club Maribyrnong Park. - With AAP reporting .
