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.

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot
