My neighbours are from Adelaide and they have told me for the past 2 years that The Crows want Goodwin....

Mark Riccutio and Goody go back a long way. Roo is a director at the crows. 

Will be interesting to see what the crows do with Pyke.

Even Port and Hinkley will be an interesting watch

But look, that is fine if you think leaving it to the players is acceptable.

Just for the record, I didn't say that.

But keep on criticising Goodwin over it if it suits your agenda.

You clearly said May should know what is expected of him as a professional footballer.  End of discussion for me.

Absolutely. They shared flags. If both Adelaide clubs fail to make September then changes will be made, so it is an interesting 5 weeks. We will find out quite a bit about Goodwin.

And so he should know. He said his folds were about 10 over where they should have been when he rocked up after the players annual break. It was about that much over for both Melb and GCS, and he knew it. Absolutely would've been told what to do and how to present to the Club. But he didn't do it. I'd say it's a combo of his fault and Misso's for not keeping on top of him. But at the end of the day, May is a mature adult who knew better.

"His skin folds were about 60, but Melbourne wanted them at 50. The Suns, too, had wanted them below 60, so he’d have been touch and go with what they asked of him."

The Suns wanted them below 60. he was 60 so needed to lose a kilo to meet the Suns standard. Seeing as though no one at MFC had told him what the requirement was for PRE SEASON rock up how would he kbow 50 was the requirement. By the by somewhere from 50-55 is about the average AFL club requirement for match fit players. You are completely wrong to make out he turned up unfit. Yes a few kilos over and skinfolds a bit higher than ideal but he made it up within a fortnight. Finally I wonder if you would have been one of the Hawthorn mob calling for Jason Dunstall to go back to Queensland after he came last in his first running session.

You misread my post, which doesn't surprise me.

I did not say he is a poor recruit, that I did not want him at MFC or that he was unfit upon arrival. The Dunstall reference is loopy.

I stated the fact that his folds were over what both MFC or GCS wanted. He knew that. He didn't do what was required.

Do you honestly think: "no one at MFC had told him what the requirement was for PRE SEASON rock up how would he kbow 50 was the requirement"?

No way would Misso not give May a fitness plan over his break, including folds. All AFL players at all clubs are given a plan. Of course he was.

It's a lesson May has learnt from well. He's already our best key back.

Oh well that settles it, Misso would have given him a plan. Case closed Clouseau.

100% Crows are also known to be pretty happy to move coaches on if they feel results aren't where they want. i guess the real question is who would we look at if Goodwin was moved on?

Such a potentially talented list, now looking completely dissorganised and spud-like.

Serious question. Would you swap Goodwin for Ratten right now? And I’m not just saying this because of tonight’s result.

To let a team have 20 shots due to turn overs is disgraceful. We’re a bottom 4 side. Anyone who thinks this season is just an aberration is delusional. We’re the true wooden spooners this year. We are without doubt the second worst side in the league.

Given expectations, this is one of the worst seasons ever recorded. That is tough to swallow.

This year is the first in a couple that coaches have been sacked and jobs are available. I think we need to make sure we don’t miss the boat. [censored] Goodwin off and get the best available.

Money for old rope for Ratten tonight. Just tell the Saints to hang in, keep the pressure on and wait for turnovers when the heat comes on.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    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. That should never have happ
