  1. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Still plenty of time to do all that. He just doesn't need to sleep on it all week. We'll agree to differ.
  2. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I've often heard that players asked to tag are told late so they don't spend all week stewing over it.
  3. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    You can't read much other than who's going to be on the extended bench. Obviously Hunt comes in and one of Stretch and Balic look like they'll be in. Possibly both or one the emergency.
  4. Training 19/4

    Thankfully, "feelings" have no relevance.

    Great idea ! SFebey, Deemania 56, Rusty Nails, and Jackaub just joined Bub, Jumbo and a host of others on here I have on ignore. Life will be much better.

    Simpletons would form a conclusion over that clip. Absolute simpletons.

    I mean he traded Wattsy !!!! Wattsy !!! Can you believe it ???? Wattsy !!!! Yeah, I can. He had as much intensity as an indoor cat.
  8. Why Melbourne Can't Be Trusted

    Favoured team gets thrashed by 11 goals after not putting up a whimper and the news is we "can't be trusted". What a revelation. It took unsurpassed genius levels to work that one out. Btw, Steve, I'm glad I'm permanently occupying a place in your mind. I intend for that to not change.
  9. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    OK. There are no excuses. How has anything just changed ?
  10. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I have two bits of advice for you. 1. Be as realistic as you can, because it will give you the logic to deal with undesirable outcomes. 2. Increase your pain threshold. And I have a bonus point to make it 3: Don't spend too much time worrying about things not in your control. You may think you deserve to get success as a supporter due to the time you've invested, but life doesn't work that way.
  11. Angus Brayshaw

    In his grand total of one game after his preseason ? Let's wait a while before we start dissecting his attributes.

    How about we let him string half a dozen games in a row ?
  13. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Supporters have to be realistic about their team and list profile. You show little realism. I've always subscribed to the well held view in football that a player usually won't influence games consistently until they've played 60-80 games. The following players, all in our nominal best 22 (save the odd omission), have all played 60 games or less. Lever, Kent, Hogan, Salem, Harmes, Hunt, Petracca, Oscar McDonald, Oliver, Neal-Bullen, Brayshaw, Wagner (debatable), Hannan, Fritsch. That's 14 or 15 players who have either just hit 60 games, are between 50 and 60, or are less than 50. That's two thirds of the team. Most will start moving into the desired range either this year or next, but there are still going to be consistency issues with a relatively young team. It's just reality. It may not be your (and others) reality, but it's life's reality. There are plenty of examples with other clubs of how it usually takes 7-8 years to win a flag once you've started a quality rebuild. Posters don't seem to care about the facts available to them. They're plain for all to see.
  14. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Yes he is. It is completely different being put in charge of a club than being an assistant. You only need to look at the heat he's copping now to see the difference. Malthouse often spoke of how easy it is being an assistant without being responsible for every major coaching decision. Whether it be selection, game styles, results, culture, the buck stops with the head coach, not the assistant. He was given a more talented list than most rookie coaches, but it's ridiculous to suggest a second year coach isn't a rookie. Although, not entirely unsurprising.
  15. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I haven't looked it up, but for me culture means a uniform set of standards that encompasses behaviours, work ethic and attitudes. How anyone can dismiss culture at a footy club full of young men is beyond me.
