Cassisi won't fight for Port AFL captaincy

Domenic Cassisi says he would happily hand over the leadership of Port Adelaide without a fight.

Port Adelaide skipper Domenic Cassisi will happily relinquish the captaincy if he believes it can help the AFL club make a brighter start under a new coach.

The 29-year-old is in his fourth year at the helm, but his reign has coincided with the Power's bleakest period on and off the field, including the ousting of two coaches.

Cassisi's 200th AFL game, against Hawthorn in Launceston on Sunday, will be the first in charge for caretaker Garry Hocking after Matthew Primus' departure on Monday.

Cassisi, one of only two remaining veterans of the Power's 2004 premiership, along with Kane Cornes, said if the club wanted a new captain alongside a new coach next season, that was fine by him.

"All I want is to see this football club win games of footy. If that means that a new captain is in line to get the wheel in motion for that, then that's what it takes," Cassisi told reporters on Thursday, according to the AFL website.

"I'm more than happy to take the role on again next year.

"Likewise, I'm more than happy to support someone else to the best of my ability if it is someone else.

"The paramount thing for this club is to get back on track."

Cassisi said as one of the club's senior players, it pained him that he and his teammates had not been able to play well enough to save Primus' career.

The tipping point came when they let Greater Western Sydney canter to a runaway victory on Saturday.

"For us guys who have been around for a while, definitely we need to change things and look to improve more rapidly," Cassisi said.

"It's disappointing, but I can't stress enough how much we were behind Matty.

"That's where our sense of remorse lies in that we weren't able to deliver more often for him.

"I can stand up here and talk as much as I want, but our actions speak louder than words and we need to change our actions."
