  1. This coming from the guy who was calling other posters Harry hindsight the other day. That said Richo Won 43 games from 126 and the ladder positions while in charge during completed seasons with St Kilda were 18th, 14th, 9th, 11th and 16th. They were 11th when he left this year. St Kilda's list isn't the greatest, but he certainly didn't do much with them. This isn’t a Clarko we are talking about here.
  2. Lewis as midfield coach, Roughy as forward coach, Rawlings back in defence, [censored] off chaplin
  3. Will be as big of a loss as Losing Vince was. Hope we pickup some seasoned players this off season
  4. Agree, much easier to adjudicate and less grey areas. That’s what kills afl internationally, it’s too grey and people don’t get it. Cricket, soccer and basketball are clear cut and that’s why they are so successful on international scene. AFL needs to urgently simplify the game or be at risk of dying, can start by removing ‘touched off the boot’ rule when players kick goals. If it goes through just call it a goal, no need to [censored] around with 50 slow mo cameras to still get it wrong.
  5. When we got it, it was due to us having won less then 4 games. A pre defined / measurable amount which was in place before the season had started. Not the same in this instance, this is just being made up on the fly.
  6. Just how he took responsibility for being a coach of 186 by getting promoted?
  7. Yep. And he was a coach during 186
  8. Sounds like Tyson Kelly trade. Can bet your money Anderson and Ash go on to become super stars while we are left with players who don’t defend or can’t hit targets
  9. I want to know how this guy has not only avoided scrutiny but also been given an armchair ride from the coach who threw Watts on during Queens Bday to get massacred through to CEO without any prior experience.
  10. They should lose there second rounder if they get it so draft returns to normal after first round.
  11. After having Misson for how many years? A broken clock is still right twice a day. Can’t believe people are backing this guy where we are at. His the only person at the club probably remaining since 186. That said it seems his role now encompasses leading reviews on himself and his mates. This guy is master at dodging scrutiny and is getting an armchair ride to the top despite mediocre performance. We all have one of those in our workplace
  12. So his a good bloke to people in the industry and signs players like Preuss to 4 years or Vandenberg to 3 years? Any GM can get players on long term contracts because it’s what the player managers push for.
  13. How is he highly rated? His only done the job for one place which is failing miserably, not sure that constitutes ‘excellent job’. Considering the amount of debacles that have occurred in his time at the club.
  14. Seems to be at the centre of it all
  15. Outside of 2018, his complete time/career at MFC has been an utter failure yet he consistently seems to avoid/evade responsibility for it.
  16. Already kicked more then our whole team did last night
  17. Came to our club as an assistance coach and has somehow moved his way into operations and seems to often evade the scrutiny despite being at the center of a lot of the clubs decisions and now being the one to lead the internal review. Known to be a poor negotiator come trade period and an ex team mate of Chaplin who also seems to be escaping scrutiny despite the defence Roos installing being wiped. Should Mahoney be under more heat? His post playing career so far • Forward Coach at Demons 2008-2011 (No prior experience). •Football Administration at Demons 2011-2013 (On Mark Neelds appointment) (No Prior experience) •Promoter to general manager of operations 2013-Present.(No prior experience) In his time at Demons we have only made finals once yet this is the man who is in charge of our internal review. He has no experience at all outside of the experience Demons have given him. •He was present for tanking debarcle •Present for Mark Neeld debarcle •Present for Mitch Clark debarcle •Present for Toumpas/Watts/Blease/Tapscott/Cook/Morton/Gysberts/Scully/Strauss/Trengove debarcle •Present for 2019 debarcle •Present for Lever/May debarcle. Yet has always avoided responsibility and seems to have gotten a free ride up the ranks.
  18. Wouldn’t write our 2020 first rounder being off the table for 2 reasons 1. Clubs may value it highly due to our 2019 performance and not rate our chances to rise on the ladder hence giving us good value for it 2.Goodwin and co cannot risk another season like 2019 and would rather front load any talent income possible which our 2020 future rounder can provide. I would look to trade it for a pick between 4-7 and see if any clubs bite. if we can do that could look at both Anderson and Ash.
  19. I think In general a captain needs to come across as intelligent. As harsh as it sounds both of our current captains don’t seem to fit that bill.
  20. Trading Viney is our best way to get 3 picks inside top 20 of the draft. We need a Rozee/Dursma/Butters esque draft.
  21. I’m not calling for him to be traded however I would like to see him played in a different position (wing, center, forward)
  22. I think his foot speed is too slow and opposition coaches are exposing it, his always oftenly struggling to keep up with his opponent.
  23. The video in this article is damning and shows Salem costing us a good 3-4 goals https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/david-king-criticises-christian-salem-for-his-defensive-efforts-against-sydney/news-story/524659fc9754edfa5e758bc3e7edf311 We have all been looking at him through goggles due to his good disposal earlier in the year however this is not acceptable.
