Is Goodwin the right guy....

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So let me get this straight Alan Richardson, has previously emphatically stated he wants to work in assistant coach and development roles in future, not a senior coach, and is joining the MFC coaching panel:

"The 54-year-old will be able to offer strong support to Simon Goodwin and help the growth of the whole coaching team."

But Simon Goodwin was set for the sacking in the mid-year review and this will be announced on Sunday.  So all this would have been discussed with Richardson in the interview process?

Think people are forgetting that:

Richardson worked under/with Hinkley at PAFC.

Burgess also worked with both above.

 

There is zero chance Richardson would be announced as assistant today and coach on Sunday - he would have been unveiled next week if so.

 

Richardson is an assistant in 2020: confirmed.

What is unconfirmed is who the MFC senior coach is in 2020.

Except for the above quote. To mention Goodwin like this doesn't make sense if you are already going to sack him 2 days later and is completely unprofessional.

Sorry, yes - they should have written:

"The 54 year old will be able to offer strong support to the next coach of the MFC, with Simon Goodwin expected to be sacked on Sunday"...

I got that. Was just joking.

Worth noting that the article was written by our resident work experience kid Ben Gibson (ie nor an AFL article as many are) so presumably would have been ticked off by the CEO given the importance of the announcement.

As you rightly say not a great look to bring a new assistant in to support your coach  then sack that coach two days later.

Richo might know what is happening.

“Christian Petracca I think wants to spend more time in the midfield and he’s been a little bit frustrated which is what happens at this time of the year,” Browne told The Hot Breakfast.

Tom Browne's Mail On Christian Petracca's Meeting With Melbourne

You should add also that he doesn't believe Patracca's going to request a trade. As far as I'm concerned, Patracca may want more Midfield minutes but he doesn't have the tank to do so yet.

That is what I would have expected it to say, or something like it, if they're going to sack Goodwin on Sunday.

Are you serious. You think  Richo would come to the club  knowing we were going to sack the coach?

Perhaps he knows that Hinkley is coming and as an inexperienced AFL coach will want and need Richo's support from. Wait......

I was simply suggesting that the MFC would never release anything about sacking a coach via another announcement...

Hence the rumours about Sunday's announcement.

Sorry that makes zero sense.

They wouldn't announce Richo's appointment today if they were going to sack Goodwin on Sunday. And in the bizarro world that might see that happen they certainly wouldn't refer to the support Richo was going to give Goodwin next season in that announcement

And on the so called rumours of an announcement that is base don some random calling into 3aw's rumour (read muck raking) file. And its not even clear the rumour was about the dees

Agree, I don't think you can "Quote" a whole article, but you can phrase it in a way that it isn't copyright.

This is the whole article;

“Christian Petracca I think wants to spend more time in the midfield and he’s been a little bit frustrated which is what happens at this time of the year,” Browne told The Hot Breakfast.

“I’m not suggesting he’s different to any other player but his manager met with Melbourne on Monday…I think they just resolved some of Petracca’s concerns so I don’t think he’ll be in trade period.”

The meeting comes after a horror 2019 for the Dees who are set to finish the year second-bottom of the ladder after reaching the prelim last year.

I tend to think a Goodwin defenestration would likely be telegraphed more strongly than this via the rumour mill.

I have been hearing rumours for most of the year that Petracca won’t be at Melbourne next year, I hope it’s not true, one of a handful that has improved this year. I have also thought it to be a load of rot and thought nothing of it, but given the year we have had I would say watch this space.

    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

    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.
