Glen Jakovich said nothing out of place. Connolly should not even comment on the game after the damage he was part of at The MFC. 

The All Australian is 22 spots

that is all you can fit

Are you serious? 60% of clubs have tanked in one form or another. We got thrown under the bus unfairly. CC and bailey were made scapegoats. I hated it when we were tanking, but to say that CC shouldn't be allowed to comment on football is mind-numbingly stupid.

Answer this. Should Bomber Thompson be allowed to comment on football given that he was part of something far more heinous than CC?

Jakovich was correct in his response apart from getting personal. For this he's a moron.

We have different opinions

CC thought it was all a joke when we were tanking. 

It was anything but. Scapegoat. Not sure about that

Connolly and Schwab were up to their necks in it all. 

I would love to get personal with both Connolly and Schwab

fked our club good and proper

Jakovich went way over the top. He can stick his tanking fair up his ass.

 

Did Connolly criticise his choice of W.A players alone, or did he mention that there will always be a massive question mark of the thought processes of anyone who played for the Eagles in Jacko's time, because of the rampant drug use?

 

[censored] him.

Different Topic. As Jako says "who comes out of the side to accomodate Lachie?"

when i hear Connolly talk tactics on ABC Radio i have to switch it off.

For me he lost all cred over the Tanking issue. He wasn't alone. But as a coach he should have known better. Playing to lose is very dangerous.

Not a different topic at all SWYL.

Jackovich absolutely teed off on Connolly, and brought up the past to back it up, including a huge slight on our club.

 

One already dead and another on the way, from drug use that was present while Jacko was playing. Connolly hasn't stooped to that level, so why would Jacko go in so hard?

Glass houses Glen Jackovich, glass houses.

Glen was the best CHB in the 90's in a very tough era

What he said about Connolly was fairly harsh but it wasn't wrong

Now if anything is irrelevant to what he said, it's that.

Anyone who lines up our club in that fashion when it's completely uncalled for, can gagf.

He wasn't even accurate - Connolly was at Melbourne during the late 80s when we were successful and higher up the pecking order than West Coast. He also took Freo to their first finals series and the their first Prelim. To call both sides 'crap clubs' is untrue. 

Connolly didn't cover himself in glory with the tanking stuff, but whilst tanking is out of vogue now, it was very much in fashion back then. Clubs that went on to win premierships clearly tanked. 

Perhaps the weirdest thing of his whole rant was that he said he "flew the flag" for the WA clubs with regards to All-Australian selection. Um...shouldn't you just picking blokes on merit?

I think Jakovich  got a bit too personal and over reacted. Must be a private feud going on.   I hope he  brings up their drug shame to counter balance but I don't think he will.

Look mate. Glen has runs on the Board. Chris has very few. That is the reality. 

We all know what The MFC went through and yes Meth Coke are what they are.

But if Connolly fired a shot at Jakovich then he must have been aware that a barrage of incoming mortar would return...

Can you possibly post exactly what Connolly said please? I would like to see for myself what brought on the full frontal assault from Jacko.

Maybe he was high when he wrote the story.

As a player, I agree, but you have to learn to draw the line SWYL, once they are not a player, we have no idea what they are really like and what agendas they are driving, similar to the Ox

Although it's entirely possible that the AFL appointed him for exactly that role. Couldn't imagine it would be free of bias if it was all eastern state judges.

You would see Pendles nominated on every line, from F.B to F.F

Don't go anywhere near people with drugs, and if you need a safe house, I can find you one fast if you are in the right area. Let me know.

Sure. When do we ever see Meth Coke or The Shockers on FTA

I know lots of people there. It's where I lived (as you know) and did the Medical Mission volunteer work.

P.M SWYL, so we don't clog the thread.

Hypocrisy thy name is Jacko! Tanking accusations from a side that managed to pull Luke Shuey as a priority pick in the 2008 draft just 2 seasons after winning a drug fuelled flag! Give me a break.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
