WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - PAUL ROOS

Recommended Posts

Scott Selwood is a great player. If somehow we can get him off his WCE contract and lure him here, that would be an enormous get for this club.

If Roos is the reason why Selwood might entertain the thought of breaking his WCE contract, then that is just more evidence of why we needed an experienced coach of Roos' status.

Also, James Brayshaw is a [censored] of a sore loser. Questioning why we needed the money despite our membership and stuff. Well, James, have you seen our crowds? Have you seen our performances on field? Have you noticed that other clubs (yours included, I'd bet) don't want to host us because of the poor crowd and awful spectacle? We don't need money because we're running out of it, we need money because we need to pull ourselves up from oblivion.

I think id die of happiness if we got Scott Selwood

23 years old averages, 26 touches and 5 tackles, absolute machine who oozes leadership

Hes contracted so wed have to trade for him

Didn't a Selwood retire from WC?

R there 2 Selwoods at WC?

Or am I totally barking up the wrong tree here?

Mods stick Roos on the banner.

No wait till a presser is called then stick his head on it asap.

Cant wait for his mug to be up on top of Demonland.

GWS $1m for $cully makes Roos salary, whatever it is, seem a bargain.

Actually it is $1.2m a year for the unnamed by 6 years.

Adam retired, Scott is a young mid with a future (and a present).

Losing by 10 goals plus every weekend is pretty damn boring too and if we are going to bore people, I would rather do it with wins on the board.. I don't think Swans are boring , perhaps a tad defensive but we are a leaking sieve now so tightening up with the players we have is only going to be a good thing..

Any more word on Roos?

heard Barrett saying we tabled a formal offer last night, imo if he met with PJ and directors last night it would more than likely be a signing situation, but that's just a guess

hopefully it's all a done deal and they're gunna let us know soon

as they have been doing for a while, out of respect for Neil Craig, they are just waiting for the season to be officially over, which it will be in about 4 hours time

This news has me buzzing so hopefully something comes from it

I would love Scott Selwood but cannot see it happening.

I had a thought today that I wouldn't mind hearing people's opinions on it

Possible trade with GC Suns Watts/Sylvia for Trent McKenzie ? Beautiful kick of the football from half back which is what we need. Suns have a dearth of talent ripe for the picking and either Watts or Sylvia and package up a draft pick aswell may be enough to get the deal done. Victorian boy too.

Another one is Luke Shuey another Melbourne boy who we could use in our midfield. Maybe even Andrew Gaff. If Worsfold goes as expected then we could really get into one or two of their ears and especially if we get Roos we may have a chance to snare one or 2 of them

Just a couple of ideas

Selwood retired, I hadn't read that before.

& only 13 games shy of 200 ???

maybe we could convince him to help us out for a year. whilst we teach our young squad the ways of responsible footy?

Geelong have the best Selwood by the length of the Flemington Straight. The remainder are Jack Dyer good ordinary footballer types. To wit role players in a great team but not great players themselves. We may consider the younger of the WC Selwoods in Scott but only at the right price. He would get a game in our midfield but he ain't no champ. I watch plenty of Weagles games on Fox. The older now retired WC Selwood has been running up and down on the same spot for a couple of seasons.

Agreed. The only Gold lives in Geelong. Scott is ok.

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..

I can imagine players getting an injunction to prevent Dwayno commentating on their games on the basis that it would damage their body of work.

within a week Eade is out and Roos is a 50/50.

I reckon Roos is over the line.

Eade is such a sook, first he wanted the job but didn't want to go through an interview process.

Then he goes through and interview process and when it looks like he won't get the job - he pulls out.

All to protect poor Rodneys ego. I see why Rocket has never been a success as a coach, he is inherently weak, cannot take criticism and most likely always has to be right.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
