Paul Roos on MMM


Demi Dee

Recommended Posts

Noticed a little promo from MMM today, announcing Chris Judd and Paul Roos as commentators for next year. 

Given the Pies need for senior advisors, is this a transitional position, or a role for Roos to provide advice without the commitment. Or, am I overthinking it?

I reckon you're overthinking it, i get the impression Roosy is done with club land. 

Having said that by round 12 this year if the Suns, Tigers and Pies have had rubbish starts to the year, they may all be shopping for a new coach and all three are capable of offering big $$ his way, so who knows.

Wonder if Roosy will talk about us constantly like he used to do with the Swans?

I thought the same. No interest in football at all, Tammy's career and family first, Hawaii all the way. To which I congratulate him on his priorities. So what's changed? now in town for the season. 

Agreed, he has done his job and I hold no resentment for him progressing his career.  I just have a feeling that when big jobs at the Pies are involved and Eddie pops someone on the media payroll, that where there's smoke sometimes there is fire.

I just hope it all goes [censored] up at the Pies and there is constant speculation of Roos coaching them. If he does or not meh, we have moved on, in Goody we trust.

Apart from Eddie hosting the breakfast show, McGuire and Collingwood have absolutely nothing to do with the ownership or management of Triple M or the southern cross Austereo network.

the thread title may as well be Paul Roos gets a job.

Just eddie, nibbling at Roosy's toenails, just in case.

Judd's taking over from Buckley...

 

...or maybe Roos is and they are setting Judd up as the coach in waiting.

Eddie has previous experiences with succession planning.

I mean what could go wrong.

Your probably right. He probably gets his own coffee too. 

The public denile of interest in Roos, June this year, is enough for me. 

Maybe I'll rename the thread "nothing to see here" or "Eddie's influence, best served to patients recovering from surgery" 

just making a note of topics that MAY be of interest to Demon supporters. Don't necessarily believe that is the case, but, following with interest.  

Glass of wine firmly in hand

This is what Roos said he'd be doing all along. 6 months in Hawaii, 6 in Melbourne where he'd be working in the media.

But nobody expected there would be a vacant poistion at collingwood (not buckleys) after Roos' 6 months in Hawaii. The balme and guppy debacle has left the door open for a brief return for Roos. A 6 month highly paid succession plan would be ideal for him. He always said he couldn't committ to a club because he wouldn't be around for the preseason.

He is an experienced/successful coach, not a football manager though.  I know their are some similarities in the roles, but that doesn't necessarily make him the best walk up start at the pies.  It would probably also be seen as undermining Buckley's position.

I doubt that would worry Eddie. Pretty confident his highest priority would be the PR.

Judd commenting on the footy?

Put away the Stilnox, we have a natural alternative.

Juddy isn't that bad - he's always come across well - it is however a fine line between being overly sensational every moment of the game and stating the bleeding obvious of what you can optically see...

Based on some of South Cross-Austereo's recent digital acquisitions, I wouldn't be surprised of Cowboy McGuire is indeed in charge down there.

I see that the recent edition of the 'Heartbeat' magazine sent to members lists all club employees. Because it's retrospective, it includes Paul Roos as Senior Coach. It also lists Tami Roos as the person in charge of "Mediatation".  I assume that's some sort of crossover between Meditation, Mediation and working in the Media...or MMM.

I hope that even though he's left he will still feel very welcome back at Melbourne whatever he decides to do in 2017. I always got the impression that he was eying the finish line towards the end of his tenure. That doesn't mean I though he was slacking but just that he looked tired and when asked about his plans he would regularly point to the fact that Tammy has had to make sacrifices in order for him to take the role on.

I'd be very surprised to him full time at club land in the near future, media is a nice cushy role for him to keep some dosh rolling in.

    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

    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
