Paul Roos on the Demonland Podcast Tonight (13/6)

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I won't get a chance to listen as I've family obligations but I'd be very interested to hear his views on targetting either Sloane or Gaff as FA this year.  Who would he choose (assuming we could get either) on the assumption we could afford them. Or is there someone else he'd look at?

Good question but unfortunately we interviewed Roosy yesterday in order to accommodate for his busy schedule. We will be airing that interview tonight prior to our discussion of the Queens birthday game.

The interview as well as the full podcast will be available from tonight after the podcast airs.

Subscribe to us on iTunes or stream it on Soundcloud. The interview itself will also be posted to YouTube.

Looking at the tiles of the podcasts it is really impressive library of interviews you are building

It is 1 hour of awesomeness from Roosy.

From Roosy? Or us after the interview?

A little from Roosy. Mostly talked about his time at the Dees with spill over to current day. No spoilers. You'll have to listen.

We'll talk about the Pies game after the interview.

If anyone would like to join the discussion about the QB game or any other issues then call: 03 9016 3666 or Skype: Demonland31.

I think next week we'll give our mid year review perhaps doing a player by player review before looking at our one and only Friday night game of the Home and Away season.

Sorry about the half an hour delay. Don't know why my program that streams the show live just wouldn't connect. I was going to delete and redownload the program straight away but didn't and that seem to do the trick. Lucky we didn't have Roosy waiting on the line. That would have been embarrassing.

I'll have the show up shortly for those who missed it live (well on Adelaide time).

Just discovered the podcasts and I’m blown away Demonland!

Great questions and responses. Good journalism IMHO

When Roosie said his biggest legacy is seeing kids turn up with Mel FC tops at QB I went to tears! My 6 yo girl wears her Demon stuff to school, my 11yo boy hats footy.

BTW

Did anyone else notice that Roosie referred to Melbourne as “us” on multiple occasions?

That was not lost on me and for me personally it was the perfect answer to his legacy question and not just for the kids.

As many have said I can reluctantly live with the game in the Centre but Darwin has to go.

In fact I could learn to like the game in Alice... This year demonstrated that with work it can be made into a showcase game.

Takes to much energy out of the side. 

Top 4 sides wouldn’t go near it, which is why it was thrown to us.

Wonderful insight and a fantastic interview.

Loved every minute of it, one of the things that stood out were the comments about Grimes and Trengove. High praise for both of them even though it didn’t work out in the end for both of them. 

“Lunacy” used to describe their appointment as co-captains at such a young age.

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The

    DRAFT STORY: THE BYSTANDERS by Whispering Jack

    It was an eerie feeling, like floating on air high above the events taking place on the ground below. This was the New Draft, a two day festival of little importance to Melbourne supporters on the first night and seemingly, of little consequence on the following day. It was as if we were the bystanders of the 2018 AFL National Draft. From the time the Demons traded away their first round selection in this year’s event as part of the deal to secure Jake Lever more than 12 months ago, it was
