Yes and that will be the test. But tell me this did anyone understand goody would watch and learn from Roos and then undo and alter his approach to the game. I suspect we believed Roos was there to develop an approach that would be consistent a succession plan.

You can think what you like, but I was replying to a poster calling him a "moron" which I thought was ridiculous for someone who achieved so much as a footballer and has remained employed in the industry.

While all of us bang away on our keyboards here with high opinions of ourselves but no pay packet.

And hardly think taking an objective look at a game of footy is 'throwing grenades'.

I agree with Lord Nev that it's ridiculous to call David King a moron and I'm the guy who called David King a moron.

Yes Sorry agree.

I cant understand it either. What was the point of the Roos' investment when it has been trashed by Goodwin.

The club remains an absolute shambles.

Commenting on performance is all fair game.

Stooping to taking personal swipes always says a whole lot more about the person doing the swiping.

No one thinks you’re tough. No one thinks you’re funny. Everyone knows you would only do it from the safety of being behind a keyboard. 

Keep it to discussing performance and we’re all happy to engage.

While I agree with your point about Lyon, I'm not sure you can be referencing someone's personal life on a footy forum and then turn around and talk about 'expecting higher standards'.

That's the nature of being a rookie senior coach, hey...

Cheers,

Just heard Perts rasio interview from Saturday. Scary stuff.

He blames the injuries/surgeries and 666 for our plight this year (same time says that is not an excuse but used it anyway )

Then says we had the 666 covered with the outside run of KK, who he then said couldn't get up with concussion issues, funny about that, and AVB who couldn't get up with injuries, funny about that. Strikes me as a very basic bloke.

The list management team rolled the dice, they backed in that TMac would continue his form from last year and the back end of 2017, that Weiderman would back up his form from the end of last year, and that the likes of Petracca, Hannan, AvB, and Fritch would be able to contribute consistently/stay fit. While also getting returns from the midfield and Gawn.

Sadly, basically every single gamble to do with the forward line has ended up failing this year.

I said it earlier, but we must try to draft in a pacy exciting small forward, it's something we have been sorely lacking for a long time but look at how important it's been to the last two premiers.

I think the Jayden Hunt experiment (or Josh Hunt as Pert keeps calling him!) with 20 goals from 20 games and increased fwd line pressure has been a better than pass mark

I thought it was appalling.

Called Hunt "Josh"  twice

Said we were expecting AVB to provide run (when he has played 7 games since 2016)

Our membership increase of 33% was a success (wait till next year)

666 had killed us.

Surgeries were in essence to blame.

He is clueless. I have dealt with him in the past. Not smart and not well regarded. Can't understand why he was parachuted into the job.

Pert calls this a 33 per cent increase over a year.

I didn't hear the interview, but I would guess that we could have had a 33% increase in membership dollars. 14% more members is one part of that, but so is the 10%+ by which they jacked up membership prices, as well all the people upgrading their memberships to guarantee grand final tickets.

Wait until next year when our membership numbers drop by 20% and our membership dollars drop by 50% as everyone comes back to a standard 11 game package or less.

I'm really hoping that we target getting in some young exciting small forward/midfielder of an Aaron Davey type because those sort of players lift others around them. 

Happy to agree to disagree re the improvers.  It's marginal.  I agree about the need to recruit some quick, outside talent.  Roos highlighted it again on Monday and the clip was damning.  The leadership question is not so simple.  Someone needs to tell Goodwin that unless he takes some responsibility for what happens on the field, no one else will.  I can't ever recall him admitting a mistake.  Leaders lead.  They don't hang back looking to blame someone else.  Confidence (and skills) will also improve when they see that someone knows what he's doing and can identify a solution.  For me, this season has been the worst in 15 years.  So much potential, so embarassing a result.  Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

The game plan is cooked. Our scoring opportunities come from highly contested high pressure situations. Hence no score.

Compare this to a turnover attack like Richmond. Heaps of space and time to kick to your forwards. This is all coaching and list selection.

I know the cue is in the rack for the year, but surely we should at least be seeing some freedom and ball movement. This is absolutely shocking.

Listen to the Demonland podcast interview with Peter Jackson after he stepped down, fair to say he thought Pert’s appointment was interesting.

    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

    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.

    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
