Which part, the bit where he failed to clear up the Watts situation, or the the part where he humiliated Trenners?

I take no notice of supporters grievances when it comes to preseason player selections.  None.

Their views are predicated on nothing more than emotion and are utterly irrelevant.

But you did notice... just now... when you posted about it.

 

(There's also not a whole lot of emotion in wanting to observe the form of a broad range of players on our list before the season starts.)

Didn't think this one thru, PD.

Thanks for the chuckle.

The club didn't have to clean up anything

it was a media driven frenzy about a bunch of practise matches

THE SEASON HAS NOT STARTED YET

Some of you people are far too precious!

Jesus - we should re-draft Morton for the way we treated him over his career..

I'm sorry, but you guys are nuts if you think JT had no idea that was going to happen.. And I am very certain he would be happy enough to be close to making the best 22!! From where he has come from that is an achievement in itself!

The coaches and selection staff don't have to answer to us for the reasons they do things and for those who think it is a massive lack of respect, think about what industry we are in! Most other clubs wouldn't even have JT on their list this year. AFL life is cutthroat, and the people complaining will be the first to call for his delisting when he inevitably plays a game this year...

The fact this conversation is happening serves as an embarrassment to Jack.

Send a rookie on the trip to gain the travel experience ffs.

Rubbish, jack is a paid afl player who went over there as cover and Goodwin as said he's that close to the team, if we had an injury in a warm up I'd much rather jack ready to step up and play than anyone else, and he's not the type to sook. He's a top fella

He is still on the list unlike Grimes who is really the one who should be considered unfortunate.

Where there's life there's hope for JT

I think Im just burned still by Neeld. He made it his aim  to "get tough" with all the players ...and, lets face it,  was cheered on by many on this site to do so. We all know how that ended.  Roos got so much out of the players using a very different method. So when Goody "gets tough" with Watts or makes a hard call with JT its hard not t be reminded of the darkest years this footy club has ever known. 

I think Goody generally is a big players man...and from what Ive read has excellent relationships with them and the coaches. His moves with JW and JT have def made me nervous but he's gotta find out who HE is as a coach. The last thing we want is someone too scared to make tough calls.

Goodwin: "Jack your just outside the best team this week and you'll play if we get any fresh injury.  We are going to take an extra player to cover us but they won't get a run if there are no injuries.  You're the man but if you don't want to go over there on that basis we'll take someone else"

Trengove: "Go stuff yourself Goodwin.  I was captain of this club long before you came and you're not respecting me as a player.  Take someone else, I don't want the chance if it comes up".

 

Not.

A lament to JT

Tis a shame, but who's to blame?

Captaincy and injury?

He can't ran fast, he can ran far... much like his sister, Jessica

The game passed him by, not by far...the painful curse of the navicular  

...and the painful curse of Neeld...lack of sentiment, the scythe should wield.

Farewell Jack, a great bloke, but we don't do great blokes in AFL - no joke

we do athletes in their prime, not Blease, nor Cale, not Grimes, not you, this time.

Goodwin: Jack, we've named you as the emergency for the first two of our preseason matches so far and we're going to do it again this Thursday.  The fact that you've been the emergency three times says that you're close to selection, but not close enough to be given any game time at all - the JLT cup is just too important to us.  While you've had a good preseason it is essential that we get plenty of game time into Vince, Jones and Lewis; these fellas need to learn what it is to be a senior footballer.  While there have been many people questioning your pace against AFL standard players... we've decided not to test this.  While there have been some who question your best position... we've also decided not to test this.  We have a plan A and will deal with plan B if the need should ever arise.  By the way, you're suiting up for the Casey intra-club as soon as you step off the red-eye from Perth.  Good chat.

What about:

Jack, we know what you can do but the players you are competing with don't have the same level of game day experience as you and need run in their legs and to better understand game play and pattern, something which as a former leader we know you already have a strong understanding towards.

How far did they fly for game ?

Why does a flight have anything to do with it.   Surely they wanted to play 23 players and Trenners was there if someone got injured.  No one got injured so he didn't play, simple.  It's not rocket science

Because he flew there and back on a short turnaround fod NOTHING. it a longhaul not conducive to being terribly fresh for a game. He came back early to do so, the rest had played when they do so not as much a factor.

No its not rocket science. ( Might be just as well )

I think you underestimate the benefit of players playing together.  It's about knowing what your teammates do, where they run and how they play.  It's no surprise that good teams are stable teams.  Our first few games are critical to our season and we need to maximise those chances.  Giving a game to someone who is probably between 25 and 30 on our list (the FD opinion not mine) when players such as Kent, Garlett, Hibbert, Frost and perhaps Smith are close is of no benefit to MFC.

I like Jack but we need to stop thinking of him as a good bloke who we want to give a go to and look at what's best for MFC.

I do see your point and, truth be told, I don't entirely disagree with you.  My point of contention however is that the 25-30 that you refer to seems to be something that is based upon training form.  For whatever reasons Trengove, Jetta, Pederson, etc. have spent the last month on the sidelines and have not had the opportunity to prove themselves during an actual match.

Some may underestimate the benefit of trialling a ( knocking on door ) fit player under real game conditions at the top level :rolleyes:

Because other players are more important right now...

trengove is about number 40 on the list

Btw, if Trengove was only making up the numbers in case of a last minute injury, why did he spend the entire game on the bench in his playing outfit????

Sorry, but it's just as possible that one of the assistant coaches came up to him while he was getting changed and said, "Jack, this is our plan for you today ..."

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
