Wouldn’t it be great if that fact influenced him to stay !

Well, Burgo also says that performance programs are a 2-3 year thing, so he's not quite finished the job he started. That might influence him to stay. It might also influence him to go because the quality of the staff around him may mean that he isn't actually required to be there, though I'm not claiming that to be true. I mean, who knows? 

It's also true that no team Burgo has been involved with has won a premiership while he was there. I'm pretty sure that's true. Someone might like to check that out. One more year might give him the opportunity to tick that one off...

Well never know but I wonder if Melbourne interest in Nick Hind was to play the Hunt role out of the backline and when it fell through Hunt was plan B????

Very good call. I'd say so. What a shrewd acquisition he's been for Essendon and it's telling we were in the mix too.

I don't know if this is residual MFCSS in me, but he may well have been saying our team was incredible to justify his ability to leave.

That said, I have a feeling he'll stick around a bit longer.

From what i understand he's leaving for purely family reasons. That being the case i doubt he'll stay beyond this season.

2 losses against bottom 4 teams is concerning. 

Need to find ways to put teams away with scoreboard pressure, we are keeping teams in games until the end every match.

Very, Very true. Keeping in mind Collingwood had key players not available due to injuries. 

We had key players out due to poor selection (Weeds ahead of Coleman medalist).

Correct again. We really missed Jack Viney, he will come into the side against a hungry Essendon. Essendon will be a big test after the break. All your comments are justified.

Still losing games we are meant to win. 

Interested as to why you're posting these comments in this thread. Are you still doubting Goodwin's ability as a coach? If so can you please elaborate? Personally I think your posts are better placed in the post-match thread. 

11-2 shows that Goody is doing an exceptional job this year. We won't win every single game.

Same as last year in Cairns last year. Lost to two bottom 4 sides and missed a finals berth by 1 game.

Why the [censored] does this keep happening that we lose to lowly sides?

Capt Motivation can't seem to get em up for these games.

We've also beaten all top 4 sides this year when challanged. Can't win every game mate. 

If anything We've been known more to beat up the bottom sides and fail to beat the top ones.

To keep things in perspective,  Richmond in 2017 lost to a lowly St Kilda by 96 points... the rest is history.

I find it interesting how this thread has just been revived even though no one has given any reason why Goodwin's coaching should be questioned. As people have already said before, the fact that we're 11-2 going into the bye shows that Goodwin's under hardly any pressure at all.

You don’t think questions should be raised when we consistently, I repeat, consistently struggle or lose to bottom 4 sides.

okaaaaay then… :/

This isn’t Goodwin. We stuffed around with the ball, tried to do all the tricky, spectacular crap. Rivs seemed like he didn’t hit a target all day and plenty of mates with him. 

Clarrie and Trac reverted back to taking on the world and individual glory mode. Gawn hit it to the filths advantage nigh on all game. 
 

Ive been a big doubter if Goodwin, but today had very very little to do with him.

Yeah your style is hanging [censored] on the club the minute we lose a game. Got it. Carry on. 
 

By the way, I hope you don’t live in Melbourne or getting on the [censored] last week would have been a rather lonely experience.

While I’m frustrated at today I really can’t see any reason to sink the boot in to the coaching. He’s gotten a lot of stuff right this year and a lot of his match day moves have been brilliant. Selection today may not have been great but I don’t think was why we lost.

Oh dear. The usual fools embarrassing themselves after a loss. 

10-2 at the bye. We’ve beaten the Cats, Tigers, Lions, dogs.
Yeah I reckon Goodwin is the right guy

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
