Simon Goodwin

181 posts in this topic

After our opening round win last year Demonland was euphoria incarnate.

Next week the Demons collapsed against Essendon. Back to Downdumpland.

I noticed that the players acted calmly and coolly when the siren sounded yesterday. That's how we Demonlanders need to react. There is still a long way to go. 

However, I feel very assured that we're heading very much in the right direction.

Oliver, Petracca and Hogan were stunning yesterday.

Ditto Gawn, Jones, Lewis, Garlett, Jetta and Uncle Tom. All players contributed yesterday.  Lots to like.

Let's now calmly deal with Carlton who, like Essendon, have also had the wood on us recently.

I thought Goodwin's Press Conference today was spot on. He has a handle on the what we need to do, more than anything, about exactly where we are. Demonlanders expect too much too soon. It's a journey, the past is now irrelevant. J. Christ, there are so many experts on this site. I'll believe Goodwin before most of them any day.

Sorry but when we haven't made finals for 11 years i think most on here have every right to get really impatient and [censored] off when we just throw away games like today.

Thanks for the reality check.

Surely that's the point of this thread?

Yeah look in the 4th year of a rebuild I expect we would be beating a rebuilding Fremantle at the G... Why is it if the roles were reversed & sides were in the opposite stages of development, we wouldn't go to Perth & beat Fremantle.. Yes we are still learning the Goodwin way but we should not be losing games like we lost today at this stage of our development.

I see what you mean. However, sooner or later we have to deal with the real, as Iggy once sang. We're not there yet. That's what Goodwin was pointing out. Don't blame him. All those missed shots at goal are not his fault. All that inability to stay composed and defend is not his fault. Our boys are still learning how to do that.

Agreed on the co captain. Poor bloody Watts now hes blighted by the club. Viney has along way to go and just cos his dad played for us is not an auto pass to be captain which is clearly the case. Hes a nice guy and a good player and will improve but talent, comitmnent and experience should come first which brings a few others into the mix b4 Jack.

Under the special requirement from Goody and Macca.

That's spelled personified and your argument is non existent.... but hey well thought out. J Watts would be an awesome co captain and the way he played today reflects that. Next time think before you type.

Which Roos would have ignored had he felt Melksham wasn't up to it.

What has he done apart from butcher most of his outside possessions. 

None of his possessions are contested...

$400.000 a year?

Changing the focus, are we?

I wasn't arguing his possessions, I was arguing your shallow point that Goody is solely to blame for Melksham's recruitment.  You're better than that, SWYL.

For me, Melksham will take time after spending 12 months out of footy.  He's done some good things, and he's also done some not good things.  He has plenty of time to settle and we're too quick to sign off on players when they don't automatically do what we want them to do.

Peronified is a Swiss drink Apologies. I agree about Watts, BUT, that Viney was chosen because of his demon lineage is ridiculous.By the way, stone thrower, please learn how to spell  'comitmnent'.

But let's not argue. Dragging the Demons out of the quagmire of mediocrity takes time. Mistakes will be made along the way.

I am argueing his use to the team Wise. 

This club has wasted far too many recruiting decisions

what does Goodwin see in him?

the 12 months out of football is his own fault and should not be used as an excuse

Now you are just going back to old posts to throw your own stones. Viney is too young and not talented enough to be co captain so why is he? He will most likely be captain but lets be fair if his dad never played would he been have picked so early? Why not Mcdonald  or again Watts?  Its a fair assumption. Viney is young and no super star yet.
