WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - PAUL ROOS

I love the idea of locking away a sponsor and doing both at once. Imagine the free advertising if Roos signs and they hold the press conference at a Range Rover dealer and Paul jumps out of a Range and onto the podium for the presser. Cheap and tacky - of course, but worth an absolute bucket of cash to Range rover right there. In fact get Paul to drive the Range onto stage at Crown (I presume) for the B+F and get it going right there. Do it Thursday night live on the footy show, then it's Range Rover live to air on the footy show all free advertising for Melbourne as well.

Oh god someone make me CEO I'm like Cameron Schwab but freaking awesome and without the whiteboard. First hire would be Peter Jackson and Deputy Vice CEO to run the day to day small stuff as he has been doing.

This is hilarious. You likely drunken genius.

This may be way off but..... The potential consequences of waiting on Roos to make a decision - Eade pulls out (already happened), Craig accepts job elsewhere, Choco says 'if I wasn't a serious candidate in the first place why would I be interested now' etc. etc

I'm only high on post 19 point competitive loss to the bulldogs at Etihad who were probably half tanking and kicked 9 goals in a quarter. This is the kind of high I only wish Mark Neeld could've stayed around to enjoy.

As for Roos with his family. Hi there Tyler, it's me Paul. You are finishing year 12 this year. I've got a contract deal to make 1.6million a year next year, do you think I should do it?

Tyler - Hmm let me think, get me an apartment near the city that I can rent for cheap with my friends, and pay for my uni at Melbourne uni or RMIT, get us a beach house at Portsea, buy me a car, promise me a holiday at the end of each year and we'll talk. Ok thanks dad.

Craig said in the Presser, that the exit interviews start on Wednesday. You would expect the coach to be involved in them. Even if it were a new coach.

Maybe. But found that they are kind of stupid. If a players contracted what do you say? Work hard, don't get on the [censored]. If they aren't contracted then all you can say I guess is we'll wait and see. I'm not convinced Paul Roos could come in on his first day and fire players, even if he's been watching closely he'd be wise to review the games and talk to all the current staff about the players.

Some reason i have a sick feeling about this now..

Roos is spending serious time in Melbourne now - on the couch, fox footy game day stuff etc. Moving would be OK I would have thought - maybe the massive commitment that being a senior coach requires is the final hitch. (Having said that, fox footy et al are pretty demanding time wise at least.)

Put the (wrist slashing) knives away for now.

Sounds like he is just working the crowd.

No way would he not have spoken about this with his wife and kids until tonight. FFS this has been going on for months, you think tonight he turns around and goes "so you may have heard I've been offered this job..."

Maybe he is working through the logistics with the family. Obviously his son couldn't relocate until November when the HSCs are done. Moving a family is not easy, but it's also not something you discuss for the first time this far down the line.

Roos would look like a tool if he said "changed my mind over night, going to coach now", and would look equally idiotic if he was to turn the job now, having met the players and reopened the conversation on Friday night.

He is doing what he needs to do to feed the media and make himself look good.

Its a done deal Roos is just working the media beautifully and building up to the announcement Need i remind everyone he met with the playing leadership group last week.

Need I remind you, that only a week ago...you constantly rammed the fact that Roos had said he will not coach us down our throats and attempted to shut down people who entertained the fact.

In yesterday's coverage, Healy kept saying "They will be better with Roos coaching...if he signs"

He was always saying something then, adding after a short gap, if he signs. Healy knows, he said he asked his brother and could not repeat what was said... Then said its too busive for TV with a massive smirk on his noggin

    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
