How Good is Goodwin?

How Good is Goodwin?

Solid, young AFL coach with much still to learn, has done very little wrong in his playing career, assistant coaching roles and the start to his senior career. Calm, collective and thoughtful with a solid consistent message infront of the media. Developing nicely and has the potential to be a superstar if given time to develop into the role. 

However, started at the wrong club for a first time coach - many MFC supporters are impatient and doubt he gets the time to develop compared to him joining a bigger club. Immediate results will make or break him once Jackson leaves. 

Completely disagree. I think he started at the perfect club Davey Dee. No only did he have the chance to be mentored by Roos who is, at the very least, a master  in terms of managing people, but he also was at the pointy end of some really good list management. The position he took on was plump...and he is enhancing his career by the week.  I look over at the gold coast at Dew,  who l still believe turned our offer down, and think THAT was the wrong club for a first time coach. Yes we're success starved and impatient.....as we should be!! Of course we WANT a flag but I dont think we're going to sack him if we dont win a flag in the next 2 or 3  years either.

 I'm impatiently waiting for the mystical flag.
Considering I'm entering my 50th year and still haven't seen one, put up with some of the absolute garbage dished up for most of those years  and are still here suggests that we as a supporter base have displayed the utmost loyalty and patience.
And I consider any comment to contrary insulting and ignorant.

You're a lot like my old man Fork, he was 4 in 1964. I suspect there to be many members of the club and on here who are all in a similar boat. You are the one's that deserve to see a flag most of all, almost the forgotten generation.

What is the % of members that have been following the club for the past 50 or so years and are yet to see a premiership? A majority of the 43k i suspect.

While he is winning he will be fine, but as a community you are too thin skinned too fragile. 

When Jackson goes a new CEO will have his hands full. I have seen no evidence you have the support structures in place to run the course. Actually, much of the written evidence in this place & places like Facebook ( assuming you believe it ) suggests your supporter base has a long, long way to go.  

AFL has some very interesting choices ahead.

So we've been downgraded to "you" this week. Just when I thought we'd made it as "we".

Thank you for your heartfelt and not at all misplaced concern and messages of advice. Wise, experienced AFL supporters such as yourself are always welcome on opposition fan forums.

If, in the future, we need any advice on how to adequately support our club, will you still be around to hold our trembling hands?

 

Meanwhile I note that no thin skinned, fragile Demons supporter has ever spat on our coach, microwaved memberships, or dumped chicken poo at the club's offices.

Notice how Dr Who, I mean Davey Dee, keeps referring to us as you. Yet more proof he is not one of us.

He has been confronted about his identity, as Dr Who is not welcome. As I have said before (and witnessed), the guy is a bald faced liar and nothing but a troll, don’t let him upset you.

He's bald as well? Poor bugger. Lucky I didn't get my old man's hairline.

Outrageous. I did time because of Dr Who.

but boy...we were good for those 2 quarters weren't we lol  what was it...6 goals down at one stage to 5 goals  up just before 3 qtr time? 

It was an even 40 point margin. That first quarter wasn't bad. Crows just went on a run and we couldn't stop it. It was ultimately an even game overal, they just got in top in the last. We timed our run too early.

When you come here people call you out for being what and who you are. You are not a Melbourne supporter. Many of us do not like you and your mischievous ways, yet you keep posting here. Are you seeking attention? Perhaps the moderators should add a dislike button and if you get enough dislikes you disappear, maybe force non MFC supporters to pay Demonland to post. I am sick of your negativity, I can only just bear it from supporters. Go back to whatever hell hole that you actually belong in.

Don''t know if you have worked it out yet simpleton but Melbourne supporters couldn't give a toss about whatever inane thoughts enter that pea brain of yours. Do everyone here a favor and crawl back into that sewer you spawned from turncoat

Goody is basically what he should be at this stage of the journey.

He is still learning but like the team he is on an upward trend. That is what I want from a coach in his first few years.

I remember watching Open Mike a few years ago when Paul Couch was a guest. He spoke about 1993 when Malcolm Blight moved everyone around and focused on a more defensive game plan. Besides Ablett lighting up the AFL as a full forward, the rest of the moves were bollocks and the Cats slumped badly.

However, he was able to get some breath taking footy out of them for the rest of that year (and into a GF the next), by fronting the playing group and admitting good errors. He went back to their philosophy of all out attack and put them all back into their old spots (besides Gazza). 

After Hawthorn, Goody seemed to learn what went wrong and adjusted his ways. That is an excellent sign.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
