    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Please dont take this the wrong way - but interestingly an AFL senior coach once said to a group of us. You would be amazed at the differnce in what the media sees based on a win or a loss. Ie the result Actually many of our recent losses compared to wins we made no significant changes and any changes we did make cannot be attributed to one person ( i think he was refererring to himself ie head coach ) the results simply went our way. He particulary then spent the next 40-50 minutes showing us video where players followed the correct instructions - yet some resulted in a loss some in a win. I then took this information and started watching many close ( ie close in result ) games completely differently - it blow me away how much money i made from it. But each to their own ...

    No for me - but the media has made an art/sport out of coach destroying, suppose it sells newspapers.

    Hahaha I have a huge amount of respect for Hawks, Geelong, Richmond and last year I loved GWS’s gameplan - which they modified off season mainly due to injuries and it’s not working for them. But this year our gameplan reminds me so much of GWS last year , I do enjoy fast moving high scoring games.

    Spot on, you see it all the time seasons can be derailed by the smallest of things ie injuries, media articles, one bad game. At all clubs. The ultimate goal is to get your players to react inside a game, modify behaviour mid way thru a game for a positive result - but it does not come naturally it needs many, many years of support.

    You make a really good point momentum is so important, yet so hard to maintain for 22 games. One thing I’ve learnt from other clubs is you can have lulls but don’t let the noise derail your season. Hopefully, we have learned - but it’s a tough game AFL football. What impressed me the most about Goody was his willingness to back his players irrespective of form over a few weeks - I hold the view in AFL your players are everything - look after them and you are heading in the right direction.

    Hell NO... blues and the priority draft pick

    I agree with Peggy expansion clubs are a long term project but essential component of a National competition to secure TV rights deal that benefit all clubs

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    That would be a dream come true & then if the Dees won I would celebrating and if we lost I would commiserate with “free” Tigers hospitality.

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Tigers where brilliant today - No way you should win after jR goes down before you can even get out the bar. Looks like a repeat of last year just who are they going to play in the Grand final

    Etihad to be renamed Marvel Stadium

    This is a very suspicious thread just like AFL will never walk away from poker machines. They are just all talk.

    Etihad to be renamed Marvel Stadium

    No doubt about it - with a multi national company like Disney getting onboard the development opportunities are now very exciting. The Victorian Sports Entertainment Complex managed by the AFL, an entertainment precinct located in the heart of the city. Stroke of genius by the AFL.

    Etihad to be renamed Marvel Stadium

    Not sure you or many Demonland old timers is the target market AFL and Disney are looking at. Nailed it, Versatility and partnerships where both parties can benefit from the others core competencies. AFL is a well run sports entertainment business - massive amount of possible highly profitable opportunities will start to become deliverable. Most importantly clubs can derive income from entertainment businesses- markets that were never accessible in the past.

    Etihad to be renamed Marvel Stadium

    I agree going to be a quality interactive experience Victoria needs a theme park to rival Queensland or Hong Kong. This could be stage 1 and if the AFL manage the project - this could be a stroke of genius. Overall this easily could be a multibillion dollar project to put AFL football into the global sphere of big time sports entertainment.

    Shaun Smith's Concussion Issues on Open Mike

    Worked with Smithy for many, many years love the bloke and thanks to him I know that your players are everything ( both past and present ) their health and welfare both during and after their playing careers is everything. Once you understand this - premierships become oh so much easier, players are human beings, treat them as such - the rewards you will receive you never forget for the rest of your life. Sadly, I had to go to another club to experience it - but it was magnificent. Over 5 years of hard work repaid in 100 minutes of football - the boys were awesome before and after.

    Well said. Its always the same every club goes thru it some are just better at dealing with negativity. Some elements of our supporter base just will never understand, they worry about things out of their control ie coaches, ceo, etc etc
