Sack everyone (mega-thread)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Troy Chaplin has single handedly turned our defence into a shambles. Rawlings had our limited talented of a defence playing decent footy, then in swooped Troy Chaplin who now has our defence breaking some sort of record for opposition inside 50 conversion rate.

Can Demonland as a collective group replace him as a coach?

I think we have some good ideas....... sometimes

He’s only half the problem. Half the list is incredibly stupid. Dolphin’s possess superior intelligence than several players

he's not solely responsible, but i don't know what's happened to our defence

Our backline coach has changed. That’s what’s happened

I knew what we were getting when he as an MFC paid employee wore a Richmond scarf to the entire 2017 finals series and carried on like their number 1 fan boy.

Roos concentrated on getting the defence right then moving forward.

Can he please be recalled?

Absolute in-lead rabble. Headless crooks.

Even Nev has gone backwards partly at least as a result of lack of structure.

Every year since Roos left our structures have been getting worse. I don't care that we made a prelim last year, our coaches are holding this group back.

Not silly statements Mono. Roos got the fundamentals right by shoring up the defence then pushed us forward. JLT and last 3 games we have gone backwards. Can't blame backs entirely as mids like Jones do not get back to help.

Totally agree with these comments. Roos set a sound foundation. Goodwin is a young coach does he have someone who could mentor him. He will be overwhelmed soon the club need to do something as this is going to get ugly

We have the worst defence in the league. Every other team defends better than us. Even Carlton’s look much better. All of Paul Roos’ defensive work has pretty much become undone. 

Serious problems with the personnel. 

Omac and Frost have got to go.

Port and Richmind fans laughed at us because we hired this rubbish footballer as our defensive coach.

Get the [censored] out Chaplin!

Baffled when we hired him in the first place.  Bridge burner.

totally agree. if we at least had an organised backline we would be 2-1. Midfield not the problem, forward line down especially with TMac playing injured / underdone. but the backline is a chaotic shambles. no pace, no teamwork, no system.

Jetta and Salem are playing well enough, Hibberd up and down. The speed at which the ball is coming from the midfield is undefendable. 

There's plenty of bad stuff but it starts with key defenders incapable of influencing contests even semi reliably.

Even Josh Wagner played ok tonight by getting to good spots and attacking the ball. 

I won't judge an assistant coach until they have some level of talent to work with.

But that’s always how it appears when coaches are crap. Omac and frost took us into the prelim .....6 months ago!  They didn’t have operations either. Whatever has happened since then has sent them backwards at a huge pace. Imo it’s gotta have something to do with Troy. The first quater last night was truly lamentable...imo the most disorganised and comical We’ve  looked down back since 2013. I was shocked. Yes it got better after that but whatever plan they’re attempting to implement clearly isn’t working.

Our style...for want of a better word ...of football only worked (sic) whilst opposition allowed it. Once teams twigged...they deny  us our game and play theirs.

We are so dumb we just keep going our way...but are no longer relevant as better ( probably at a count of 17 now ) teams have worked us out 

Sadly the FD hasn't worked out that we've been worked out.

The midfield was shocking defensively tonight, pretty hard to defend when the ball comes in so fast and the kickers have 15m of space

Defence cost us in First Quarter not helped by lack of pressure from midland forwards.

I think Oscar played his worst game last night and Petty (not Kelty) deserve the opportunity to claim that position till the injured return and beyond if he shows his true ability.

FWIW thought Hibbo returned to some form and Nev got back on track last night.

It's also so one dimensional to just punch someone must mark the ball and get it moving to create tun and carry to out forwards.

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
