WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - PAUL ROOS

You don't meet with the leadership group and discuss your game plan unless you're damn sure you're gonna be coaching them. Paul Roos is locked and loaded.

I am sure he is about to sign, but you don't talk like this to journos if you already have.

All these assistants we are lining up would hear it and think 'what are they doing?'

I don't think he has signed a contract yet and that is what we are telling these prospective assistant coaches. Once he signs on the dotted line then we sign up everyone else.

I know he is playing the media here, but I don't think he has anything more than intentions at this stage.

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

He also stated 50 + 50 equals 100 about 3 times.

Knows his math Gerald.

Im not sure if many are up with how a lot of magicians tricks are conjured. The actual events have often taken place early. The rest is smoke and mirrors to obsfucate the audience . Sound familiar ?? Do here, make'm look there...

Roos wouldnt have said boo to us had not Tammi and co given him the green light months and months ago. This is all a show for public consumption.

Reading between the lines here, but I interpret that as Neil has been asked to catch up with PJ for a coffee on Wednesday.

That's a costly coffee - he is contracted for $400k+ next year.

The exit I envision for Craig is one of his own volition.

You certainly sense he's an honorable man dont you.

A certain manager of a certain high profile, high draft pick who's contract is up, has told me that it has been confirmed to him by our club that Roos will be coach.

This story has played true since I first discussed it on here in May. Now I am waiting to collect my winnings from the dam bookmaker who would only let me bet $20 @ odds of $8. Hope a few others here took my advice.

When confirmed this is the best possible news for our Football Club.

Only a coffee at this stage RP.

They interviewed Craig in the pre-match show yesteday, quizzed him about the Brisbane gig. Apparently the jungle drums are beating quite loudly in terms of Craig for Brisbane.

And will this certain high profile player now do us the honor of re-signing?

I don't normally do this....and I don't have it from Paul Roos directly.....but.....

I have it from a well connected source that it's done.

They are also saying announcement Thursday night.

Don't tell me, you hit the ouija board over the weekend?

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.

Agreed, except Tyler will be telling PJ his demands. Just like Scully Snr and GWS. And we'll pay. A lot less than the pie chugger cost GWS to get that one across the line. wonder if he'll be included in the Salary Cap too :rolleyes:

    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
