Scully post match interview



Recommended Posts

Following the game, one of the GWS fitness guys said that Scully was running with Nathan Jones and Toumpas was demanding the ball. Jones completely ignored him and then gave Toumpas a spray.

Following this, Scully got in Toumpas' ear and told him (words to the effect), 'you've got to leave this bucket shop. There's no on field leadership at the place. They'll ruin your career etc'.

I think Toumpas then told Scully to get stuffed.

Bottom line is that Scully has absolutely no guilt towards or empathy for this club at all. He is essentially a sociopath.

The same AFL that gave us TWO FIRST ROUND PICKS for him leaving? They owe us nothing.

Hogan. Hogan. Hogan. Hogan. Oh, and some sleight of hand with Viney. And a tonne of cash for Clark. We're still ahead of that game.

HaHaHa, geez i'm glad he's gone, what a [censored].

That is an educated assessment of Tom, you are spot on the money mate.

If this is true RG, I have a new respect for Jimmy.

Yes my lips curl. He looked Jimma in the eyes and said he wasn't going.

Yeah he is a textbook sociopath Scully, I can't stand the little [censored].

And what makes it worse, is no-one would've begrudged him for taking the coin on offer.

But.. The way he went about the whole thing was just disgraceful.

I was hoping I bumped into him, I was lucky enough to bump into Woewodin after he departed:)

Woey didn't leave, he was moved on.

Still leaves me shattered even after all these years Woey leaving but makes me love him even more that he doesn't hold grudges against the MFC only Daniher. As for Scully I truly do not care he will never win a Brownlow or tear a game apart so at best he is a bit part player who can play a role at GWS and we got more than enough compensation for him.

He is still at a basket case just a slightly different one

Young players showing form, big money from the AFL, a superstar in the making in Cameron and they may land a massive free agent. Meanwhile in Melbourne we have Cam Pederson, no cash at the moment, no faith, president, coach or ability to develop players. Our time will come but I know what I would take at the moment.

What actually irks me is that no-one at our footy club seems to have the balls to be a villain anymore. Seriously, i may belong in a different era (although not much - retired from footy 4 hears ago aged 35), but why doesn't anyone want to cop the 4 week ban for knocking the little pr1ck into tomorrow. Just a good old fashioned shirt front would do it. No need for Barry Hall type king hits. if he left Hawthorn or Essendon in the same manner he'd be lucky to leave any return game with intact ribs. Our club is soft at present, where are the hard bodied, hard at it types that win footy games in the trenches - reckon our recruiting strategy would have been a lot different if I was involved

Well said... The MFC don't like hard bodied, hard at it types... We've been going through a phase of collecting stick thin athletes, what for, who knows?

Maybe oneday they will announce that they've just been taking the p*ss for the past decade.

You guys are talking about a game that no longer exists...

We are talking about Joel Selwood, Luke Parker, Rory Sloane, Dustin Martin, Callan Ward, Ollie Wines, those types of players.

There will always be room in the game for these players.

The MFC probably decided that game no longer exists when they drafted Morton, Cook, Gysberts, etc.

But, they forgot to take into account that the aim of the game is to score goals and to do so - you actually have to get the ball.

Todd Viney appears to be on the right track, Terlich and Jones were great pick ups and good on him, he has done an amazing job.

Not sure how it's possible to even put Woey in the same sentence, breath, life, world, existence with the no 1 p_ick, Woey's a Demon great and a great Demon, then there's the p_ick.

Viney also drafted Toumpas over Wines. That was the correct decision. You are contradicting yourself here though, 316.

No you're not, you're talking about players being villains.

You type so many words, yet say so little.

Big bodied players who go in and get the ball.

If Scully gets in the road, run through him.

We wouldn't even have a player able to run through Tom Scully, which is sad.

I can not make it anymore clearer what I believe to be our downfall - we draft the thin athletic types instead of the well built footballers.

Machiavelli, you can hold onto hope that we have done the right thing, but I don't think we have.

I don't think we should've overlooked Sloane in favor of the flashy Benell... Overlook Parker/Darling in favor of a stick thin athlete like Cook.

The MFC continues to draft these types, I understand you like these types Machiavelli, I personally don't, it's a matter of opinion and whilst I don't agree with yours - I respect it.

I like these types?

You like to talk crap & put words in the mouths of others.

Well you clearly don't like the big bodied midfielders who actually have a dip, or you wouldn't be still whinging.

Let me guess, you are still attached to Morton, Cook and Gysberts? It's ok bud, don't panic, we'll probably get more athletic insects in.

316 your point gets hidden behind your recall bias. Sloane was a late pick and isn't exactly a star, he's a strange example.

Freo are one of the hardest toughest teams going around and there 3 best mids in Fyfe, Mundy and Barlow were all skinny kids at one stage. Although they are tall for mids.

Chad Wingard was a skinny kid who put on a clinic and won a show down today. Michael Walters did it for Freo last night.

The Predergast drafting era was a disaster because he focused on attractive elements of a player rather than the collective worth.

But Toumpas v Wines is different. It's simply 2 guys with different skill sets at different stages of development. But very importantly Toumpaa is a footballer.

The clubs development of players has been atrocious, at least the recruiters changed last year and the coaches will change now

josh kelly for mine is this years tom scully, hard runner with great skills, maybe too skinny for what we need?

yeah I worry about how big an advantage his endurance provides him. But I love his class and he doesn't seem afraid to mix it inside. I think he's skills are better than Scully's.

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of
