Nah I want a fresh Tasmanian team, they would be most peoples affectionate 2nd team we all want to see succeed and rooting for the Roos is just too unpalatable.

My masterplan for the comp includes 20 teams, 19 round season, 10 team finals series and so North moving to Tassie disrupts that. Fresh Tassie team and another team somewhere else please.

Barnawartha Norf?

If they want draft picks, Brown is probably the best trade value in that team. A few experts think he’s only worth a late first round pick at best. Where do you rate him 58? Sorry to sidetrack.

One of the best full forwards going around. Has his weaknesses as best man in man not in  packs but it's all about getting good forwards in the six  positions with the defenders taking the one two and if needed three talls.

Brown is accurate, a good to very good mark, but is not good on the ground. Tommy Mac can still play his role and IMO Weid would still be able  to play most games or Pruess swap to give Maxie some rest.

Its all about options and depth and 3 quick smalls (crumbers and runners) to choose between (Like Tigers or Eagles) plus Trac Melk Hannan Lockhart and ABN if fit gives variety and depth.

Would need to pay Brown $750,000 about to leave but for all of Jesses potential and fluster this would be a quick fix worth looking at plus a new forward Coach mandatory in this plan.

I do wounder if Eddie gets his way and Weid wants to follow in the family tradition at the Pies, if something like Collingwoods first round pick and Melbourne's second round one would get Sideshow Bob to the Demons?

Sorry for my ignorance but who is Sideshow Bob a mythical full forward?

I like Brad Scott as an assistant coach  if there was a chance of luring him to Melbourne he would surely help to toughen the list of young talent that we have not the same as being at the Roos.  Anything to get better. Take it as you like IMO he leaves with dignity and he did his best and now North have to find the right fit again.

Norths loss is someone else's gain. Why not chase him?

Because he wants to be The senior coach.

Doesn't make sense for him to take an assistant role for 2-4 years.  Better off taking a 'gap' year and see what comes up.

Agree but he might be interested in a "director of football role."

If we were to appoint one with a meaningful role it could help in improving the coaching standard. At the start of the season I posted that we needed to see improvement and more consistency from the coaching staff. They appear to have gone backwards on so many levels.... selection, 6-6-6, variable gameplans and of course that most important area ... psychological management.

This season has been woeful not because of injuries but because of the drop off in form by so many of the non injured senior players. That strikes me as a systemic issue.

I have long argued on here for a 'Director of Football' ie someone who sits on the Board who has 'football' as their portfolio.  He is the person the Board expect to be across football strategy and performance.  At the moment the responsibility to the Board is shared between Pert and Mahoney. 

The last Director of Football we had was Greg Healy.   GWS have Jimmy Bartel and Carlton have Chris Judd.  Not sure what other clubs do.

From my reading of the Scott situation, he wants another Senior Coaching gig. 

But am totally with you in the need for a Director of Football and/or a Neil Balme type in the Football Department.

Scott would have to accept that his senior coaching days are over before he came to us or any other club as an assistant. I don't think he's there yet. (And in truth, it's too early to tell either way.)

Do we know he'd be any better as a director of football?  Would prefer someone who has runs on the board from coaching, or managing, at a successful club.

While I don't know him Balme struck me as the perfect director of football. Smart, able to communicate and good management skills.

Scott's persona as portrayed in the media is perhaps a little more tunnel visioned than I would have wanted for the role but there is no doubt that the right person in the role provides the glue. The role of the CEO is to stay out of the football department unless systemic issues require intervention.

The one role that is becoming less defined as the years go by is that of head coach.

Brad Scott said over the weekend he wanted to spend more time with his wife and family. 

Does that mean he wants another Senior Coaching job? I would say not for a while, unless he is spinning rubbish, because he already has a gig lined up. 

He would be a great assistant if possible, i get the feeling that Goodwin is struggling big time. Tactically and Stress levels.

That's the template for all coach and politician leaving speeches...

He will spend some time for a few months and be back as senior coach somewhere after this season is over for some club if not before.

He has already done 10 years, that is a long job for a coach. It wouldn’t suprise me if he takes an assistant job to dilute  the responsibilities and day to day pressures

 What if we had him for the year as an assistant.  He would give our young boys some good knowledge about the game and every little bit would help.  It won't stop him applying for a senior position anywhere else LH. Gap year or not someone will have his services sooner rather than later. Senior or assistant. HE IS A COMPETITIVE BEAST.

I just want a touch of that on some of our boys.

The old parting by mutual agreement huh?  Isn't that what you say when your girlfriend dumps you and don't want to admit it?

Brad's PR team are doing well here but if the Club thinks it's time to part ways it doesn't really matter if the coach agrees or not. Scott was sacked after being at the club for 10 years, having a bit of crack of creating an elite team and failing and now having a bottom 4 team to pass on.  If this was really planned and mutually agreed, they would have a successor or replacement ready.  they have traded so many draft picks just to stay around 9th spot, and now you can count the number of good players they have under 24yo on one hand. maybe even on a camel's toe!

lots of speculation that north will look to ship out mid-level to senior experienced players in order to get draft picks in, but who would you look at?

  • luke davies-uniake: no way they're giving up a high pick at this stage, despite how ordinary he looks (20 at start of 2020 season)
  • ben cunnington: workhorse who just wracks up the ball and quietly goes about his business (28)
  • jy simpkin: talented but doesn't work nearly hard enough defensively (22)
  • jared polec: one year in a big money deal, there's no way they'd trade him out (27)
  • tarryn thomas: one of their few young talents on their list, again no way they'd trade him (20)
  • ben brown: key forward who is good in the air and a deadeye [censored] but a liability at ground level (27)

basically i don't think there's much on their list to poach from tbh

it would seem that they'll have a complete changeover in their footy department, but i don't know who of the below may appeal to 'freshen up' our approach?

  • brad scott: tactically astute but something about the scott twins has already rubbed me the wrong way
  • gavin brown: senior assistant who has been at collingwood and carlton previously
  • darren crocker: director of coaching and midfield coach, i guess he could be a similar like-for-like with brendan mccartney?
  • aaron greaves: head of player development, literally joined this year along with the two port players he brought with him
  • rhyce shaw: defensive coach, was pretty highly regarded over the previou four years at swans, has just joined the kangas this year
  • jared moore: stoppage coach, they're terrible at stoppages so now way you'd look at him
  • leigh tudor: forwards coach, another senior assistant coach who seems to have been around for ages, having served at swans, saints and cats prior to joining the kangas in 2013

tbh, i think we'll probably be looking for someone to replace mccartney, so i guess from that perspective those such as crocker and tudor may hold some appeal

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    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
