WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - PAUL ROOS

I know he didn't have a full pre season (I was being sarcastic :P )

Who makes the calls on whether a player plays under duress? If it's the players they can't be trusted- they go out underdone because they are fighters but what does that do to the good of the team down the track? Strong clubs put players on the sidelines if they aren't fully fit no matter how important they are to team structure. It's just another little thing we need to fix to become a professional outfit- which I think with PJ and AFL help we are well on our way to being. Finally.

Roos could be waiting on the AFL to tick off a priority pick before he commits, there is little doubt that he would expect a priority pick.

I don't see why this would be the case - pretty sure the Swans never or rarely had a top 10 pick under Roos and his coaching style is about building the culture and systems for players to prosper rather than relying on early draft picks.

Roos will need an incentive to come back into coaching and he will not want to fail.

If you were Paul Roos, would you ask for a priority pick, knowing that it will give you more of a chance to succeed?

If you listen to Roos on the couch, he made a case for us receiving a priority when IMO, in the past he would've bagged out the suggestion of us receiving such a pick.

Port just beat Collingwood.

There is a MASSIVE difference between the Malthouse production line VS Roos/Bomber production line.

Make no mistake, we will improve ten fold with Paul Roos as a coach.

I've been saying this all year, coaches from the Geelong or Sydney production line are worth their weight in gold.

Just look at Ken Hinkley going about his business, Port were a rabble last year and arguably worse than us.

yesterday would not have hurt Roos chances of taking on the MFC job

Hogan looking like the next Carey, 4 hours later the Demons dominate the Dogs for 3 quarters and get a victory

Ideally for me Roos would be the coach and Neil Craig would become the head of player development

Todd Viney should become our main recruiter, he nailed last years draft big time

I hope he doesn't. In fact, I'm certain he won't. But, like you, I'd like him to stay and support the next coach.

Ben you changed your Avarter!

Looking like Voss will get a 2 year deal with the Lions

So thats one less team that will need a new coach

... IF true, its another slap in the face for the likes of eade & williams. do you reckon they wouldn't have hired a 'Roos', if they were available to the Lions?

so the Lions must rate Voss, either level with eade & williams, or above them...

I am currently reading the book written by Roos and his wife Tammi " Life is Sport, Sport is Life".

From what I have read, we can all rest assured that money won't be the main factor and if his wife is against it, end of story. Not only is Roos working in the media and for the Swans, he is also a very sought after motivational speaker.

He doesn't need the money. He will do it if he is motivated and his family is happy about it.

As a side note, if the book is accurate, he is a very decent person and his family have very good values.

PS. Tanking would have been totally repugnant to him.

You are talking about the same bloke that tanked a NAB cup game (possibly more than one - but one where he was caught on camera)

I don't think repugnant is the word you are looking for...

Roos is out of the race according to Gerard Healy on 3AW tonight.

He was asking Dees Supporters if they had a choice between Craig,Williams and Eade,who would you choose?

Best available.

If Williams can turn Dustan around, he can turn Melbourne 176 degrees... Not quite a 180!

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
