Strange, wasn't Chaplin a defender? Anyway, welcome Troy.

Often defenders end up becoming offensive coaches as they have studied how to nulify offensive running patterns etc. Happens in various sports

2 Jade Rawlings' are better than 1?

Apparently a smart player who has worked hard in preparing for coaching. His boss at the Oakleigh Chargers is our women's/development coach so he'd know whether he is impressive or not.

Job titles are overrated, although I do have concerns that we are hiring a player from one of the worst ball movement teams in the league to have a role in that.

That said, Tiger fans say Chaplin was vital in the development of Rance who is a one man wrecking ball of a zone defender.

Correct me if i am wrong but the current coaching group is now

Simon Goodwin - Senior Coach

Craig Jennings - Education coordinator

Brendan McCartney- Player and coach performance coordinator 

Mathew Egan - Head of development

Jade Rawlings - Defensive coordinator 

Dan Mcpherson - i thought he was offensive coordinator?

Ben Mathews - Midfield & Stoppage coach

Greg Stafford - Ruck coach 

Troy Chaplin - Offensive coordinator

 

Looks a very strong group to me, four coaches who have coached their own team.

Yeah, I would assume that Dan McPherson might be show the door.

Truth be told, some new ideas in our forward line would be most welcome.

Im hopefull that Chaplins relationship with Vickory is strong - send jake and anb over to the tiges for a genuine 200 cm foward / ruck . 

 

Vickory has been held back from the ruck at the tiges - played his underage as a ruckman so why not as a second to gawn . Can box a bit too would make a few stand taller .

I am not a fan of huge coaching groups, and hopefully we will see a day when there are only five: head coach, development coach, forward, mids, backs. I understand the need for an older mature head but I can't understand why that can't be the devlopment coach. From my limited insight gained only from reading various things, Chaplin is respected and has always been touted as a coach, I am just unconvinced we need to pay someone good coin to coordinate the forwards, alongside the forward coach.

Maybe his role includes a new emphasais on sledging - so when our boys have a go at a galumphing dick like Brendon Goddard or Heath Shaw, it will be pre-organsied and really effective.

Look forward to working with you Red, i've been appointed director of drinking and shenanigans, really keen to develop some really unhealthy habits within the club and hopefully set us up for a period of sustained memory loss and inebriation

There are also the Casey coaches (and the Women's team), all of which are either on the MFCFD payroll or aligned/integrated with our coaches philosophy!

Even if he hasn't a strong relationship with Vickory, let's hope that he has one with Ty Vickery!

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    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
