Is Goodwin the right guy....

Seriously - should that even be a question!?

Rats had us singing once.

It was half a rhetorical question. I’m done with Goodwin. He put all his eggs in the contested ball basket (and I said this last year before anyone shoots me down) and it spectacularly blew up in his face. I’m not across the contracts, but if you offered me a straight swap with Ratten, I would take it every day if the week.

1. Embarrassingly outcoached today.

2. Coaching towards one of the most significant drop offs across the board in history

3. Has assembled a team that turns the ball over, plays lazy, unaccountable football, and gifts opposition teams scores

4. Makes minimal if any in-game changes to counter opposition dominance

5. Is just an awful game day coach

He is badly out of his depth.

He is clueless. Consistently out coached. Needs to go, now.

I've been hanging in there for him but now I am convinced he needs to go and this week. 14 goals from our turnovers in back half, pathetic skills all over ground by all players including Salem and NO leadership at all plus unbelievable selections to me means he has no f'ing  idea how to coach

Hard to defend the post bye coaching by Goodwin.

If we had lost with a new gameplan.... ok.. we're experimenting.. but to continue with the rebound happy football is unforgivable.

This was not a loss.. it was a loss against a fellow cellar dweller and it offered no hope

As usual our better players got even worse... That's coaching

Tonight we had 14 players from our Prelim side + Fritsch + Lever.

Few excuses now.

Will be gone by the end of next week. They won't want to miss out on what is available given the ammount of teams in the market right now.

I don’t think Goodwin now deserves the benefit of the doubt for 2019 anymore .

are we willing to waste another year next year continuing with this ? 

this game plan just doesn’t stack up, I mean honestly how does OMac get a call up to dish up that , infuriating that we persist , where is the getting games reward for effort there , which Goodwin preaches so much !! 

not one for getting hysterical , I but I genuinely think the club now needs to ask itself a few hard questions over the next month

I would give him an out if we was coaching for next year, but we have Jordan Lewis playing forward FFS.

Not sure about the players, but he has lost most supporters with half a brain.

He’s done, but we can’t pay him out so he’ll last through 2020.

2017 was a failed year.

2018 was a successful year.

2019 has been a epic failure year.

He’s at 2/3 failure rate so far after being handed a finals ready and supremely talented young list.

If you think he'll be gone mid 2020 the money between now and then is not much different.

On the flip side the possible damage to club revenues is enormous

Godwin’s going nowhere.

He’s got too long left on his contract and even if he was sacked and paid out he’d still come under the footy department soft cap rules. 

The only way we could then even afford to pay a new senior coach would mean sacking at least 3 or 4 assistants plus other footy department cuts.

with the afls soft cap rules no club will be able to sack senior coaches not in their final year of their contract.

Agree Forest, he has lost the supporters. He lost them long ago.

how many members next year if Goodwin is still coach?

That’s the issue though. Most of us know he isn’t going anywhere because the club jumped at shadows and locked him in for 4 years. Even I could tell that was ridiculous based on 4 good weeks at the end of last year.

no... the soft salary cap is a tax not  a limit... just need the money

any one of the big clubs he would be gone

Money wise not much difference between sacking him now or at the  bye next season

is it essentially a luxury tax? sacking goodwin means we would be paying an additional "tax" on top of that cap.

i suspect with a board stacked with executives, we would be okay to pay it.

Pert and Bartlett have a lot to answer for with Goodwin's contract.

over the cap is dollar for dollar to the AFL .. a simple question of money to be weighed up against loss of sponsorships revenue etc

I was on the plane with the team last week and I didn’t like the body language at all . I don’t think I saw anybody talk to Goodwin at all . Of course I wasn't looking all the time .

    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
