Roos: Dees Pair the Next Big Things

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Love listening to him talk about the Dees. 

He praises eagerly and is measured in criticisms.  And, he is not shy to openly support players.  In that article he talks of Tom Mc and Jesse.  Numerous times, even when both were injured and most on here had doubts, he talked up Salem and Brayshaw, if played in position.  (Both now are and we are seeing the benefits). 

I really like that every now and then he lets slip 'we' when talking about one of games.  He genuinely wants to see us do well and is like a proud dad when players or the team perform.

Jonathan Brown  in that article on Tom Mac Donald:

“I’d be surprised if someone offered him more than a million dollars,” Brown said of the soon-to-be restricted free agent.

Certainly hope he's right !! Little wonder the contract renewal is taking a while if those figures are being talked about.

Tom is in a fantastic negotiating position. Could not have worked out better for him.

Playing where he wants to play up forward, playing great footy, playing with his brother, and now having team success after years battling his heart out down back in losing teams.

On top of of it all he is set for a big pay rise.

or Petracca and Brayshaw

or Viney and Oliver

Roosy must have loved seeing us play on the weekend.

If we're ever lucky enough to be standing on that podium on that one day in September and Barrass isn't available to present us with the cup my second choice would be him.

Bloke turned the rabble around.

We need to win 3 flags. One for Barassi. One for Neale. One for Roos. I've got no clue which order they should be in.

Make it 4. Johnny Northey is pretty deserving too.

Thanks Mono, when you think about it:

Lever - Omac 

Jetta - Hibberd

Frost - Hunt

Vince - Lewis

Trac - Brayshaw

Oliver - Viney

ANB - Bugg

Melksham - Harmes

Fritsch - Hannan

Garlett - Spargo

Looks like Gawn needs a partner in crime (Pedo/Smith?)

Gets me thinking 🤔

The head of that list should be none other than Robbie Flower, then daylight. Barassi played in flags, Neale had one of the more successful coaching careers since Norm Smith (up their with Northey). And Roos was on board for only 3 years.

Robbie on the other hand, played the majority of the 70's/80's (14/15 years) without playing in a final. He was the heart and soul of the club in it's darkest period, and was the reason most supporters endured those [censored] years and continued to go to the footy nonetheless. They didn't go to watch a win, they went to watch him play.
