Very briefly /roughly...

- Goody has an open door policy

- Goody gets to know each player very well on and off the field without taking it too far "Mates" wise

- Gives them plenty of freedom without being ultra strict with team rules while following a basic structure/method (i think).  Resulting in the players enjoying their footy more than previously in general.

- Agreed we are not great in the big matches but are enjoying/learning from challenges and have really only just started to get more experience as a unit in bigger games as we haven't been involved in too many previously.  Defended a little here saying we have won QB matches in the past (being our only recent exposure) and hoping  to get more experience by making finals and taking it as far as possible should we get there.

goodwin himself is a robot in the pressers. how many times does he have to say 'its a disappointing loss and it doesn't resemble the way we play our footy..etc'. eventually it does resemble the way we play footy and if we lose this week to port i don't think we deserve to play finals. smashed by hawks, rich and collingwood have made me feel that we may not be ready yet.

We simply have to win friday night. 

Otherwise we are the classic Flat Trackker. 

Time to play under pressure and succeed.

Sam McClure is almost unbearable to listen to and I just can’t stand to watch TV with him on.

Reminds me of a ventriloquist dummy the way his gob runs up and down.

This is the persona he projects to the media.  Clearly he is a different person at training, in meetings etc.  When he speaks to the media he protects the players and re-inforces the culture and the expectations he wants to associate with the club.  What is wrong with that?  Nothing.  In fact, it's exactly what we need.  He never got carried away after 4,5,6 wins in a row.  Instead he said that we're doing things right and that we need to continue to do so.  We'll have bumps in the road (ie. Collingwood) but I like the fact Goodwin is working hard to keep them grounded and to play the 'Melbourne way' no matter who the opposition is.

That makes any difference? Maybe he wants to present a similar, stable front to fans and players in those public times?

My post was directly related to the 4th point in the original post. I'm just tired of hearing all of this manufactured dribble..eventually the noise from goodwin's mouth is fugazi until we start winning these games.

So, what happens when a flat track bully in Port Adelaide meets another (possible) flat track bully? A high scoring affair? Or low scoring?

I am tipping free scoring without Lever. 

If we can lock Port down i will be stoked. 

Maybe even play Hogan off Half Back and Midfield. 

TMac must play forward
