Been lurking here for the last few months but I'm one of the bigger PJ fans around so this was enough to make me sign up, well done!

My question:

What advice would you give someone at the start of their career who wants to work in football admin, and what makes someone good at the job? Its impossible not to be inspired by what you've achieved since you started with us.

 

Welcome to Demonland.

Are looking into getting into football admin?

Does he offer Demons members discounts on his suits? 

Or his cigarettes? And what about any of his movies?

I can actually picture his answer and the exact look on his face upon being asked said inane questions.

My actual question would be about what would be the best way for us to maintain our upward momentum? Too often we as a club have gotten very self satisfied at this point and proceed to shag everything up.

My questions to Peter Jackson would be...

1) Besides winning games of football, what does the Melbourne Football Club need to do continue to become financially successful?

2) What advice would you give to Gary Pert when he takes over the reigns as CEO of the Melbourne Football Club?

Does he grow tired of hearing junior staff members refer to him as "Peeeeeeteeerr Jaaackson" when they think he's out of ear shot but actually he isn't?

Is the interview prerecorded or live? If live it’ll coincide with the closure of trade week so it’d be good to get PJ’s assessment of trades, player contracts given they appear very flexible and what he thinks of trade week in general.

We pre-recorded the interview this morning to accommodate Peter. We will air it at the top of the show and then @Grapeviney, @Nasher and I will discuss the trades.

What are his thoughts on Bartlett as head of the board? People on here have denigrated Bartlett, it would be good to hear PJ thoughts on him and the board as an overall compared to his time at Ess.

Speaking of them, I know this is a Dees podcast but it would be amazing to hear PJ thoughts on the Ess drug scandal.
Does he think it was right for the players to be punished under the WADA code? Did the club take enough responsibility for it?
Are all clubs now fully onboard the WADA code?
 
What does he he think of the ridiculous nature of the trade period now days?
 
Can he give us and understanding of what kind of preparation/time goes into the end of season delist/trade/draft period? How many people at the club are involved? How often during the season do they meet to discuss the salary cap, players staying, players
maybe coming in? 
 
Is there 1 thing he is most proud of from his time at Melb?
Is he a Demon for life now??? :)
 
Lota of qs but would be good to get a real sense of some of the inner workings of this stuff, not the same old “what was the club like when you arrived? “Stuffed”” type questions.
 
PS awesome get gents!!!

The man doesn't eat biscuits. He eats cement direct from the mixer.

Can you ask what Peter thinks about the muppets on here that think they could negotiate trades better than Josh Mahoney and how they could best help next year?  E.g.should they come down to the club and advise or do they serve the club best from behind their keyboards.

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir
