My work took me to Perth two or three times and I loved it there. A little isolated, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The only thing I didn't like... where I was staying, there were these frogs outside that made a sound like a crying baby... and they did it all night long!!

Is it true all the cops are poms?Or is it just most of the population there?

I'm not and no they aren't, there are a large number who were recruited in 08/09 when they were struggling for numbers with the mining boom and will be another 300 in the next 18 months from UK, Ireland & NZ.

You come up with that many conspiracy posts, who knows.

And you post a load of negative rubbish. I seem to remember you calling me a [censored] for suggesting Roos was coming. Well, what do you know?

I find it staggering that some people couldn't read between the lines of Roos' continued stance of "yet". They only saw "not interested". Year 11 media basics. Manipulative journalism. Quotes can be misrepresented and used to paint whatever the flavour story is. The media hedged their bets with a stance that Roos was not coming. Now they're hedging with the obvious. Roos was signed weeks ago. It's not about Roos [censored]-teasing us. The club didn't want the dead-duck predicament with Craig. Now with the season practically over, Roos claims he's 50-50. I wouldn't be surprised if they wait to announce Roos. Once we have our new assistants signed and sealed, they'll roll them all out.

Please don't refer to anything Dwayne Russell says as gospel.

Couldn't agree more! About Dwayne Russel!

in relation to the getting a court junction remark..

Lets all keep in mind the Dwayne Russel is without a doubt the worst commentator in the game and his opinion holds about as much weight as Caroline Wilson at a comedy night.. the bloke is as interesting as a damp hot dog..

Judd turned Melb down because of our facilities (junction oval) And Aker and Ball were after immediate success..

Judd never turned down Melb because of facilities because he signed for $$$$ at Carlscum before he even indicated to Meth Coke that he was going.

That tour of our facilities was a mere shenanigan for the AFL, the real deal was signed and sealed months before..... bit like Roos??

For ever and ever i will be greatful to PJ for managing this process, raise a statue, name an award after him, he moves into the same tier as McClelland. I really felt in the last two months that the club might have crossed some point of no return now with Roos (i choose to believe it's happening) i think we will have the coach that can deliever the right fit in or eff off speech to the list. And the sydney list was made by Roos, he truly got the most out of those boys and Hogan, Viney, Toumpas, Clark etc have all the silk we need, and will compare favourably or better(i hope for hall to be exceeded by hogan) watts to become goode(maybe 50% good)

People attempting to pour cold water on the promise of a Paul Roos defection to the Red and Blue may wish to think twice when citing Chris Judd and Tom Scully's decisions to leave us. Both of those players made their decisions based on no other reason than their desire for a little more cash - something that I suspect is also a major factor in Paul Roos' decision making process.

Money talks - only this time we're on the right side of the coin.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!

What wrong with FROGS?

I have dozens of them in my yard and I really enjoy them and they can make as much noise as they want.

Their sounds are music to my ears, mind you Mrs Frog said I could sleep thought a nuclear war.

But I would not be surprised if you think for some strange reason I like Frogs.

Hey Adam - I can't agree with this.

It wasn't manipulative journalism - many of us observed Roos making the comments on air - prior to games and on On The Couch (including the journalists).

I think everyone appreciated that the club, indeed the AFL, were right into landing Roos - but I don't think anyone really knew what he was ultimately going to do, even the journos.

There seemed to be an underlying logic here that because Hird stated that he had no interest in landing the Dons gig, and then took it Judas style, that Roos would/could do the same thing. That 'logic' didn't make sense to me at the time, and, to be honest, it still doesn't. It seemed to be based on pure 'wish thinking' to me. Simply because one person does one thing, doesn't mean that someone else (with an entirely different character) would do exactly the same thing.

On face value, the publicly known evidence until very recently quite clearly pointed to the viewpoint that Roos coaching the MFC next year would be highly unlikely.

It seems to me that that has now changed - thankfully! - but I hardly think there was an absence of 'logic' to the thinking over recent months that he would not be coaching us in 2014.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
