    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Would have to be one of his worst performances in the coaches box. Petty (poor bloke) clearly wasn’t up to the pace of the game and Goodwin let him get isolated repeatedly

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    Just perception but never felt Bartlett appreciated Peter Jackson talking about the old and new Melbourne boards when he arrived. From afar it seemed like Jackson (with the strong support of the afl) probably ran his own show which for the most part has been a success but has not totally been forgotten

    Watts Dropped from Port

    Seems the club made the right call knowing they would target Fritsch who will provided a similar output for much less money. Money ball at its best! Jack who?

    Wines Unsure of Contract

    I think most would agree that it helps to create the perception you are strongly considering bigger other offers if you want others to match them or better them. You need to set up a small market place

    Wines Unsure of Contract

    He isn’t going anywhere. Said he will decide soon so he can only be staying at port and holding out for the best contract

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    Would be excellent. Awesome results with cricket Australia over years if you look at viewership, attendance, participation growth stats

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    Possibly over thinking some of this DV8

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    If the AFL is pulling the strings, no disrespect intended, but board members aren't going to tell you this

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    Mahoney has been excellent. Some might think it’s a tad early but he will get there soon enough. We might lose him to another club if we don’t reward him now

    Tom McDonald sent for Scans (24/5)

    Agree. That’s one of the reasons Hawthorn have won flags recently without finishing on top. They time their run to perfection

    You have actually highlighted many of the injury mgmt issues last year that caused us issues: Viney should not be allowed to mismanage his recovery out of a determination to help the team - he is our most influential player Gawn himself on refection said it wasn't just his hammy but that he did get fit enough to return Watts was criticised for not getting himself fit for this return and was subsequently dropped. Salem was also unfit and dropped back to VFL Tmac had a set back earlier this year. Lets hope he hasn't had another one.

    I think its stupid to ignore stats for injury management and assume sports science are doing a good job just because its a bit of a black box to read

    l know that many will disagree with me, but unlike some, I'm not focused just on popularist views .. check the stats for yourself: 2017 injury ladder (and it only got worse as the year progressed and we missed finals) http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/more-news/greater-western-sydney-sits-on-top-of-hurt-ladder-by-a-long-way/news-story/260167253f20b80354b15fc8ee3de301 2016 injury ladder: https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/afls-injury-ladder-hawthorn-gws-not-alarmed-by-luckless-run-20170724-gxhh2x.html Hopefully our sports science team don't derail what has been a good start this season

    Your just being naive ... our injury management cost us finals last year ... so it needs to be called out
