Recommended Posts

What does he expect Goody to say, I’d love to know what Goody is saying behind closed doors.

There appears to be a fascination among the media and wider public with Melbourne and its finals chances.

Does this mean that we are relevant again?  Are they scared of what we will become and are getting a few cheap punches in now?

Good lord. There are some shortcomings in the MFC team? How come no-one's noticed? Why hasn't anyone said anything?

Thanks Supercoach Terry. Great gameday coach but as for the rest of it ....

(Balances out Goody nicely, who seems to be lacking in the game day department. Perhaps Terry could point that one out for us as well?)

It’s a fair assessment but hardly classified news. 

Goodwin has 2 games to gain some cred. 

2 losses and the media will be digging...

Derm just said on 360 that sometimes Goody gets a bit funky in the coaches box when he should roll 6 - 6 - 6.

And when we do win the flag next year, I think Rod Grinter should pay the t..d a visit and replace his teeth via his back passage

Thanks, Wallet.  Pop on a little more bronzer next time.

This stat is a week old and not his own work. It does not address goodwins key premise either. Media commentators only survive on oxygen and attention or they risk irrelevacy. 

I've only got 2 words for you Terry- 

Rodney grinter.

Not quite what i was typing in my post simultaneously as you 1554. 

Similar drift though.....

Goody denying we have a issue against better teams is like an addict denying they have an addiction. 

That said Wallace didn't say anything groundbreaking, more "no sh*t Sherlock".

No matter what Wallace says, rehashing and glorifying him being assaulted on the field I find incredibly distasteful.

I am coming to the conclusion that the coaching department is lacking in the game plan department, let alone game day strategy. 

Watching the replay yet again of last week’s game to compliment being there and seeing the disaster unfold before me I keep coming back to the game plan and it’s limitations.

To use a boxing analogy we are the classic slugger/brawler who lacks speed, balance and finesse, we just keep moving forward, hunting the opponent, throwing haymakers, hoping that if we throw enough punches we will overwhelm the opposition. It works against mugs but not against your classic boxers. 

We are predictable and slow but potentially dangerous. We are the Rocky Balboa of the AFL. 

Our opponent on Sunday was your classic boxer, think M Ali, fast on his feet, determined to keep his distance and just counter punch and move away, using the full area of the ring to set up angles of attack that negate your attack and maximise his counter punching. And this is what the Swans did, they used the full width of the Gee to work their way forward by foot to then get a shot on goal, often from 40 or 50 m but it worked. Meantime we bombed high forward hoping for a big mark or loose ball inside a 30m arc patrolled by Allir and later Cheney and got nothing. 

As a footy team we are so predictable in attack but also dangerous because we win so much contested footy and manufacture so many inside 50’s and have some good big forwards to mark the ball coming in. So on paper the game plan makes some sense. However it is not working. 

Against the best sides we have got close but usually our conversion rate has failed us. On Sunday it reached a new level of ineptitude that was inexplicable! 7 missed set shots from inside 40 metres while the Swans nailed every shot from 50m set shot or on the run.

This. After the (rightful) condemnation here of Gaff too ("wouldn't have him! )

That's your summary, but in reality did he take about 90 seconds to say it?

Someone should tell Wallace that 'fugazi' has nothing to do with 'fake news'.  Long bow drawn by him.  I didn't like Wallace's tone and attitude - quite aggro and unnecessary.

But, it was only a matter of time before someone in the media started pointing the finger at the coach rather than the players or the inanimate game plan.  I guess Simon's honeymoon period is coming to an end and the media will turn up the heat on him if we don't perform. 

Its one thing for us loyal demon fans to vent about him and coaches on here.  But it is another thing when some hack commentator does it. 

The media can turn nasty quite quickly so hopefully we pull a rabbit out of the hat in the next few weeks and win a game or two.

Dermie on 360 said Goody is being too funky with the game plan, needs to simplify and Dunstall said Goodwin needs to start putting the heat on the players instead of being a softy basically. Other stuff mentioned and alluded to like not much mongrel.

First, Wallet watches every game of AFL football every week, and has every right to put his light on things.  He was one of the first last year to rule-out Adelaide early in 2018 when they were red-hot.  Roosy for memory, was one of the first to rate Richmond in 2017.

Second, I actually agree with Goody, in that the 17 games within a kick speaks volumes.  Wallet and Lyon (8 by default) is average commentary in my view.  I won't be slitting my wrists unlike the simpletons, if we don't make it.

 

For those clowns here that raise Rod Grinter, just shows you how empty and inept some 'contributors' are here.  The Fraser Annings of Demonland.

Derm and Dunstall were pretty good on their take on the Dees.

talents there, once we get over the hurdle of not knowing how to be good and ruthless we will be very very good.

Dermie was trying very hard not to say we are soft, made for awkward viewing really. Well get there eventually

Been the story all week.

Everyone is saying once we turn the corner and get a scalp, we'll be right up there.

Believe it when I see it.
