Sanderson Sacked!

Recommended Posts

Surely too early for Goodwin?

You would think so, even a few Adelaide supporters suggesting the same.

But who else? Tudor? Was seriously in the running last time round if the rumours are true.

Watch this space, especially if McKenna joins him.

Ru wants his mate to coach, we were about to sign him and they jumped early.

Simple really...

What a silly decision!

They made the Prelim in his first year, FCS. Struggled last year without Tippett and Walker, then were unlucky not to make it this year in an even field.

Clearly the Crows brains trust are impatient and jealous of the success of Port Adelaide. They'll be back to square one when Goodwin doesn't yield better results next year.

One does not simply trade Bernie Vince in Adelaide. He's the kingmaker

Stupid decision he is the scapegoat for the clubs poor decisions, they were a kick away from a grand final berth he lost tippet and walker all last year, had no good draft picks because of the tippet saga and was forced to trade players like Bernie Vince to get back in the draft all stuff out of his control, a massive knee jerk reaction

Hey, did anyone hear? Sanderson's been sacked apparently. Can't confirm, not sure of source, but you heard it here first!

Seems a tad ruthless, must be some truth in the unhappy senior player rumour.

I think he is very unlucky.

He lost Tippett, had draft restrictions and Walker was injured a lot.

Ruthless industry. Not much patience.

New CEo from Canberra Rugby looks like a dumbo.Fagan

Sports admin has to be one of the most pathetic things I've ever seen.

As the admin grows, the sport,team,comp etc gets worse.

It wasn't broke and they tried to fix it.

So massive payout to Sando, payout to assistants. Unreal. He had to have lost the players (Danger and Walker etc). Potentially our massive loss all round.

Seems there was a bit of friction between the coach and certain players. They don't come out and say it, but it sounds a hell of a lot like the club decided it was more important to keep the boys happy than keep the coach.

Last I heard Danger was a supporter of Sando.

Interesting times ahead.

Fantastic news!

Improves our chances of acquiring Dangerfield.

Depending on coach probably decreases it if Danger didnt like Sanderson?

Don't underestimate how significantly destabilizing the whole club less than a month before trade week can play on player's minds.

Fascinating, irrational decision. Haven't a clue if this bodes well or poorly for us with the Danger rumors. Likewise Goodwin. Did they decide any apprentice good enough for Roos was simply too good to pass up? Did Danger tell them he wants out and this is a desperate attempt to keep Tex and Sloane from leaving? Hard to say just yet.

Yep! Disrupts our plans, but I accept that that's the price to pay for getting to watch an Adelaide trainwreck for a few weeks.

Happens a bit with teams in towns , without too many teams... All gets a bit incestuous etc.

I think the Crows are bloody mad for this. Watch them slide .

Sandersons sacking will become known as Fagans Folly!!

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
