Was there an official announcement that he wouldn't be at the club next year in any capacity? If there was I missed it. That does seem pretty obviously to be the case though.

Can't see him having anything to do with Footy in a club capacity for a long time. His continual line was the his wife has sacrificed a lot during his time as coach and that it was time for him to repay that patience. 

Sounds like he'll probably get into some commentary next year, no doubt Fox Footy will chase him for a role on 360 or one of the other shows but I doubt he will do anything massively time consuming that takes him away from his family. 

He's certainly earned a break!

I think he'll initially try to distance himself from the club, purely to give Simon Goodwin the clear air required to take control without having the distraction of another key figure to confuse or dilute the message.

Roos in time may come back, but I see him being more involved in development or even the growth of the women's game.

I seriously don't get this. I get that footy is time consuming but he has said this over and over. Unless it is a pot shot at her to go and get a job or something.

Because she has had to spend so much time away from America where she is from.

Wow. If that's it I am even more dumbfounded. You marry someone from another country and it's a sacrifice to go and live in the breadwinner's country?

I see a question mark in there but I don't see a question.  Surely that's not an actual question?

I think he means she has sacrificed a lot of times. Chicken or goats maybe. She's into voodoo or something. One of her spells finally worked?

She sacrificed because being an AFL coach is a massive commitment. One that she though he was done with, I would hazard a guess that they had plans for post Sydney coaching and those plans got put on hold. Being from another country away from her family can be difficult at times and Paul coaching us also probably meant they didn't have as much time to go see them. 

It's also not hard to imagine that at times she's had to give him a lot of emotional support at times. 

I wonder whether the club (and Roos himself) getting her involved with the players with meditation etc was an effort to give them a chance to spend time together while in his official capacity. With the added bonus that a lot of players have spoken highly of her influence.

Or it could just be that! Whatever animal she sacrificed before the Hawks game order roughly 25 for next year! :P

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
