Tonight.

Seems like Roos covers a lot of territory.  Recruiting Goodwin, Time at Fitzroy, Pressure on Hogan etc.

I don't have Foxtel so if anyone can give a rundown it would be gratefully appreciated.

I wonder whether Roos' initial reluctance was due to the Essendon Drugs saga, and Goodwin's part in it?

I suspect that is 100% the case

Looking forward to this and wasn't Roos meant to be ON THE COUCH this week? I tuned in last night to find that they were doing a post Home & Away wrap.

Sorry, slight tangent. :P

A couple of references to next week's B&F. Really looking forward to the night after being OS the last couple of years.

Obviously Swans are still closest to his heart - "us, we, our" etc.

He said he now is a demon supporter.

Jealousy only ever gets you in trouble mate.

Interesting that one of the fundamental points he made was to pick the best team every week.  Surely he didn't do that at MFC but looked to developing for the future.

Just a class act. Of all the current coaches and folks involved in AFL footy, I can't think of anyone that comes close. We were fortunate that he spent 3 years of his life at the Demons. His gave us everything that we did not have. And I have no doubt sustained success is to come. Thanks Paul for everything.

I just watched the full program

Roosy is a football person

Part of his time was Fitzroy Part of his time was The Swans & Part of his time was The MFC. We cannot ask for more. He will watch us closely over the next few seasons i have no doubt. He may even help out behind the scenes. 

Just a good bloke is Roosy and such a great player. 

During the 80's if Fitzroy were on the TV i used to barrack for Roos 

Some of his marks were incredible....

I think that sums him up very well. Like it or not he's got Melbourne in his heart along side Fitzroy and Sydney (understandably Sydney probably occupies more space).

When he was asked about the last round it did upset me because you can tell it hurt him, but I think what upset me the most is he's annoyed with himself about it, that he failed. Definitely didn't deserve to bow out after his worst ever loss.

But a very good interview from Mike, Roos was pretty honest and measured with his responses (wouldn't expect anything less from him). For me the most interesting part was him talking about his time as captain at Fitzroy and how he was put in a difficult position with players and match payments. I get the feeling that a few Melbourne captains have lived through that as well.

Just like a have a special little place in my heart for the different local clubs I have played for, I'm sure Roos would feel the same.

I think a lot here could empathise.

Put simply. Saved the Club.

Can't think of anyone else who could have done it.

I loved the interview, and was struck by Roosy's sincerity throughout.

As a success deprived Melbourne supporter, a couple of snippets filled me with excitement, confidence and expectation for the next few years.  Specifically:

  • Roosy's absolute confidence in Goody to take over the reins;
  • his observation that we now have "great" people in all areas of the Club;
  • his comment that we are now set up for a "sustained period of success"   ..........  if not next year, then 95% certain we will be playing finals the year after.

Thanks Roosy, and all the best for the future.  We are indebted to you!
