WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - PAUL ROOS

Recommended Posts

'left the door ajar'

sounds a lot better than that for mine, sounds like he is saying yep I'll take it on just make sure there is plenty of $$$$$$$

"In some ways it's the great coaching challenge"

That's it Roosy, that's the angle

this is brilliant, for once we might get somebody bona fide with serious runs on the board around the place

"The thought of coaching Melbourne doesn't scare me, not the club itself or any other club," he said.

"In some ways it's the great coaching challenge, but you have got to be thinking like a coach to take it on if you are going to do that role."

Buckle up folks.

So everything else the HUN writes is crap but this isn't?

I would dance the happy dance if we got him but I don't think it will happen.

Clarkson is where we should be sending our dollars.

it is one thing for journos to write baseless speculation, but his own quotes are there

agreed, i wish the HS didnt exist but a quote is a quote. there is none of the old "we are led to believe" garbage.

He is quoting Roos in the article. Don't think it's legal to put quotes unless it's verbatim so would say it's fairly solid.

Ok, so they are quoting Roo's... Fair Play

I'm gun shy of getting my hopes up, also I do have a thoughts that if Neelds hard line approach didn't work how will Roo's, Clarkso, Eade or Choc Willams meant to?

You can only hope they scare the sh!t out of the players and get some results...

Either way I'm pretty tired... I miss footy, I miss not getting flogged week in week out... But still I can't help but think it wasn't Neelds fault it was the players.

Paul Roo's doesn't have a hard line approach, he builds characters and then it's up to them to work for him.

Roo's instills the qualities in individuals, qualities that are necessary to succeed.

Really impressive listening to Roo's on On the Couch.

As a commentator I can't stand Roo's - especially in Sydney games, but as a football mind and a bloke who knows organizations and how to build successful organizations, Roo's knows his stuff.

not to mention knowing what to do on gameday, something we have been sorely lacking for a long time

It's Roos or Clarkson for mine at a mill a year.

Let's go. I have been waiting for this since '73 when RDB went to Nought.

It's our time. The AFL WANT IT. It's time for the Northern Stand to roar again.

i[m with you. This is a good day. Get the big coach signature, those that have a foot out the door turn around, we lure a big player or two, back in the hunt

Sooooo more chance of getting a contracted coach shooting for a premiership whose agent has said "no way", than a former coach working part time in the media who seems open to it?

Hmmmmmm......

every man has his price. Hogan is waiting in the wings...

If Roos coaches again it won't be about money. It would be about whether the challenge gets him excited & whether he is motivated or interested in coaching full time, the effect on his life etc. The club will have to sort itself off the field if we are any hope. One thing is for sure the club needs to find something that it aspires to or wants to represent because at the moment the club doesn't really have a football philosophy or identity. Roos would definitely bring this as he did at Sydney.

Really!! Neeld has nearly the worst record in history. Surely it's up to him to get the players motivated. From the start he treated them like shite. It's impossible for them to ignore their fellow players being humiliated in front of the group without them realising this could not only happen to them at any minute but also how to respect the coach doing it. His first game against Brisbane he gave steph Martin a bake at half time that none of the players had ever seen. There has been a lot of humiliation of individual players in front of the group including vision on the field. He is delusional or lying.

FMD. Roos has stated categorically that he is not interested in coaching repeatedly.

I guess the more he is asked this the more it stirs the simple minded that he must be interested.

And the wing nuts that claim "every man has his price" seem to forget that we are going cap in hand to the AFL for money.

We can't pay stupid sums for a coach and money alone does not guarantee an outcome.

Not long ago the "experts" and the "naysayers" were also saying that nobody would want to take the CEO's job and suddenly Peter Jackson emerged with enthusiasm about "taking on the challenge". The same will happen with the coach's job for precisely the same reason. It will be well paid and a challenge that those who are brave enough will dare to take on.

As far as Roos is concerned however, the issue is not so much one of taking on the challenge but rather, the wife and family. Heard she's not keen on a move to Melbourne (the city) for personal reasons and that she will therefore prevail.

The scenario should make for some interesting but contrived discussion on On the Couch in the coming months.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
