I don't judge De Goey but whatever allegations that have been made against him whilst overseas, but I do question his judgment in going overseas in the first place. The timing of those trips screams of lack of professionalism, as it seems that football is a means to his lifestyle. 

Personally, I think the "No DH Policy", is a load of rubbish. Martin Pike was seen as the ultimate DH when at Melbourne, and ended up a 4-time premiership player. Roos admitted that we had the chance to get Toby Greene, but he was seen as a DH. As long as players abide by whatever the club require of them, I couldn't care less what they're like off the field. Although I might draw the line if they love Rap music. (A reference to all the TISM fans).

I never said anything about getting De Goey, I was just saying that with their rotten culture they have won 8 in a row and so maybe it's not culture that wins games.

You might not give a rats about a team winning 8 in a row, but I bet their supporters do.

PS: I am certainly not defending De Goey and I wouldn't want him with us.

Yep you can have a “Bad” Culture and still win Silverware. 
Carlton did it for decades

Fair enough.  I do place a huge value on culture, as clubs are member driven not for profit organisations, and I do think they have a significant role to play in society.  I'm proud of the culture developed at Melbourne, I certainly wouldn't want to have a loose cannon jeopardise it.

he has all the talent to be as good as petracca and absolutely none of the application required to do so

i'm fully expecting him to go to the puddy tatts as a free agent because that is how they maintain their position at the top of the ladder for the last decade; lose champions to retirement and bring in mid-aged good-to-great talented players to replace them, augmented by picking the eyes out of the drafts

can't really see him going to the cats. their culture is quite strong and doubt they'd want the risk

besides.....he's too young...lol

You can .... like your Carlton example from 40 years ago where success was largely determined by your zone and how much you were able to play your players. It was also a period where the quality of individuals was far more important than the cohesion of a team. 

As for the last 25 years, you could probably only really point to the 2006 West Coast team, who won a flag (although it could be argued that they vastly underperformed based on their talent - Cox, Judd, Cousins, Kerr etc - and it being a soft period in the competition between Brisbane and Geelong/Hawthorn teams).

Not sure how Kate Roffey would feel if she knew her footy club was interested in a bloke that has had sexual assault history.. 

He's a genuine pig of a human. Lets leave it to the dwarf lighters (St Kilda) for this one.

What about the Rat Pack Pies in 2010?

There are also plenty of examples of bad eggs in good cultures who became premiership players. (De Goey would also be a premiership player but for a Dom Sheed kick from the boundary.)

That said, I agree with the sentiment that culture is important and I raised De Goey as a topic without having a firm view on the pros/cons.

It's certainly a good one to raise 'Fat' because talent alone he's easily a top 10 player in the game.

I wouldn't be surprised if Degoey's name is raised when our list management and Goody do sit down for their annual catch up.

But when weighing everything I think he's just far too toxic for the culture we're trying to build.

Good pick up. 

Interesting though that that Collingwood team really only a 3 year window (2010 -2012) to win a flag before they kind of imploded. Really interesting was their list profile when they won the flag: 

  • 0 players 30+ years old,
  • 1x 29yo (B Johnson),
  • 2x 28yo (Jolly, L Brown),
  • 2x 27yo (Maxwell, Didak),
  • 2x 26yo (Ball, Swan),
  • 0x 25yo,
  • 1x 24yo (H Shaw)
  • 5x 23yo
  • 4x 22yo
  • 2x 21yo
  • 2x 20yo
  • 1x 19yo 

By 2013, only Leigh Brown had retired. They effectively fell out of their premiership window with a list that probably got better, with Pendlebury, Thomas, Beams, Sidebottom and Wellingham moving into their early primes, adding Grundy, and Swan still being top 3 in the Brownlow.

They squandered a dynasty through their terrible culture.

And West Coast had a window of 2 years (2005-2006) despite their extraordinary midfield. They went out in straight sets in 2007 and imploded to second last in 2008 .... 2 years after winning a flag with a 28 year old Cousins, 27 year old Fletcher and Wirrpanda, 25 year old Cox, Glass and Embley, and 23 year Judd and Kerr. 

Incredible.

You are right that they could have been a dynasty with that list profile but the Pies did come up against a great side in 2011 and led by 16 points in the Grand Final. (The 2011 Cats sit on the frontier of premiership sides since 2000 along with the 2000 Bombers, 2007 Cats and 2021 Demons according to the squiggle. https://live.squiggle.com.au/2000.html)  The exit of Malthouse was another factor in the failure to capitalise on a great list.

Your analysis also shows that dynasties are hard to come by. Sometimes you have to take risks with bad eggs and trust your culture. The Hawks added Brian Lake and won 3 flags.

A mate who is a huge Collingwood supporter puts this failure squarely at the feet of Nathan Buckley. As you point out Axis of Bob, they had a great young list that never reached heights it should have, particularly 2012-15. 
My mate is getting great satisfaction watching them play now under McRae . He also thinks De Goey should go and Foxtrot Oscar

Agree. Culture can also mean everybody on the same page. West Coast were truly toxic, but they were a dam good pressure side on The field. How much was due to stimulants we will never know 

I am not saying we should get De Goey, but it should be a consideration with our on going forward structure. 
The Filth want him out, so they have to accept a contract situation they do not like for both De Goey and Grundy

Luckily Buckley came in and fixed their culture. From a flag winning young team in a window to years without finals 😂

Jaidyn Stephenson has been a raging success at Norf - the betting on a games you're playing in thing should've been a red flag. Presume he'd have failed the MFC's "No Jaidyn's" policy in any event...

Problem with DHs is you're in a hiding to nothing - if they fail, it was obvious to anyone they were going to fail...

Tyson Stengle has been a raging success despite far more serious transgressions. People can change under the right guidance, though I'm not sure that De Goey wants to change.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space.

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
