Haha looks like you're argument has run outta puff.

I'm not knocking you or your point, but I do disagree with it pretty strongly. Roosy decided his tenure was only 3 years, he wasn't shoved out he decide to leave on his own terms. What he thinks of himself and his legacy is irrelevant, it has zero bearing on any results

Nest you'll be asking me to take Slobbo Robinsons opinion seriously

I don't hate Roosy, but I agree with you dazzle.

Carlton will suit him well 

Nah matey, just reckon I've tried to explain the definition of legacy to you enough times, so now you're clearly just being one of those guys on an internet forum. I posted what I had heard, from a source I've explained, and also said I can understand if people don't choose to believe me. If you want to get your knickers in a twist about that it's up to you and doesn't bother me. I'm more interested in trying to be a practical poster here than having internet willy size contests. Have a good one.

Edit - Oh and just for the sake of clarity, this thread is about Roos taking a role at Carlton, nowhere have I said his opinion has any bearings on the results for the Dees. That's something you've chosen to try to weasel into the conversation for some reason.

Roos wanted a short time and then to groom a successor, Goody was it. That’s his legacy, helped turn it around but didn’t want to finish the job and left it to someone else.. That was his choice, he was great for us and we all thank him but he isn’t part of the club any longer and you can’t complain from the shadows.

Rumour is he is quietly seething behind the scenes at what Goodwin has done to his legacy at the Dees, and that, combine with changed life circumstances, has seen him look to come back into the coaching fold.

 

For clarity purposes, like I've said this whole thread.

Who cares what Roos thinks. I also disagree with you're point about his legacy. It stops when the new coach takes over. We obviously disagree on this point, but one Roos left it is my opinion Roos legacy is irrelavent

Nothing against u Lord Nev lets just agree to disagree

There's a number of aspects to this...ONE)  Roos IS [censored] off big time. He grew to have a very soft spot for us

TWO) he's very much miffed about certain events that happened at Melbourne  THREE ) He would /will never return...There are impediments in his way.

Yes Roosey makes a pretty good coin. But he's quite passionate about footy. he was once very passionate about us.

The only analogy that comes to mind......"a woman scorned"    he's no girl though.   Some might get this...especially anyone who is au fait with how the club's travelled in recent years. Cheers

Ok. I have a need to be a tad circumspect  but suffice to say the last couple of years of Roos' short stay had a few surprises.  Not all went to script. 

Roos is a proud man with much to be proud of. Jackson was an ignoramus to things football  but a very clever man as to business. We should be thankful  for both. 

Not everyone  was/is on the same page at the club. Some have their own little game in play. 

Ill ask a question  in lieu of pontificating  erroneously.  Why do you supposea person so keen on the MFC...is no longer...to the point of handing it a lesson ?  Trust me....bears considering.

Intriguing but must say I am not close enough to the Club to be picking up your clues.

I appreciate what Roos did at the club...I appreciate what PJ did a lot more.

...but honestly 'bb', the only thing that Roos is really passionate about is himself.

The Carlton move is a smart one for him, he knows they are on the way up now and he can hitch a ride and add to the aura that surrounds him.

The Sundance Kid rides again...

If it means the Baggers get 2-3 years of incremental improvements, some form of transition arrangement and a year or two of flash in the pan type performances then they can have him!

He left MMM this season because they wouldn't meet his pay demands and goes on Fox with flirtatious intent to spruik his services to the highest bidder - let's face it he's a modern day gun for hire.

This is a moronic post. Roos did a terrific job at our club and was well worth the money. He's entitled to decide who he works for and to ask what he is worth. You would have no idea what is important to Paul Roos and probably have never even met him.

I don't know what having an idea about what's important to Paul Roos nor whether I've met him has to do with anything, let alone my post. Only he can answer that and I'm pretty sure (and hopeful) he doesn't frequent DL.

Everything I stated is fact. We improved incrementally which was due, in part, to a job of work from Roos. He walked out on his Triple M contract and he goes on On the Couch each week where he gives teasing responses to Gerard's Dorothy Dixers, just as he did in 2013. I'm not sure why you're even taking issue with this and the more I think about it it's scarcely relevant.

Please don't call anyone or their posts moronic - we barrack for the same freakin' club - put your manners back in.

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition
