No major review says Bartlett

Recommended Posts

I expect there will be 2 VERY strong viewpoints on this.

We prob don’t need an external review because the forty department knows where they stuffed up and will rectify it for next season. 

I have no doubt there will be a review just not an external one.

The best thing about no major review is that it means there was no major problem.

How about fixing the glaring inadequacies a number of players have in their goal kicking - poor technique, poor ball drop, no follow through.

Review? I thought we already did a review. Like 4 weeks ago. Or are we reviewing the review?

We did.

The overwhelming consensus (as a result) was that Oscar needed to do a mini pre season and thank god now everything is back on track.

Actually think he makes a lot of sense, but the usual panic merchants won't be calmed by mature leadership and a measured outlook, they demand action, any action, reasoned or not, just something so they can continue to be angry...

For those who haven't, or won't bother, to actually read the article, take note of this bit:

"We have made some mid-season changes in footy because we are reviewing all the time. We don’t need to do a big external review at the end of the year, we are constantly reviewing."

And if you think Bartlett heading down to the footy department, closely followed by major change in the coaching and fitness departments, isn't part of the above then I'm not going to bother trying to convince you tbh.

He didn't say that.

Odds are meaningless.

You say this every week. Surely by now you've made up your own mind, or does our substance change week to week?

He said they are constantly reviewing. This is Consistent with an agile framework you’d find in many businesses these days. Nothing to see here.

Yes he did. Stated the Season is still alive. 

We would need 12 wins to make September...

7 games to go

odds are never meaningless Nev, they tell a story

Show me the exact quote where he said "I expect to beat the Bulldogs this weekend". That's what you have said he said and it's literally nowhere in the article.

Would you prefer him say "Oh the season is dead, we probs won't even bother now..."

Geez mate, you need to just calm down a bit, get worried about your health.

Nah @Smokey, for some, statements NEED to be made in BIG BLACK BOLD LETTERS, just in case they think constant reviews are a new age thing in which case, send a rrrrocket up em...cause that'll fix it.

I think that SWYL is trying to say is that Glen Bartlett should have stated our season is toast and that heads will roll and start naming names.

How else do we make finals if we don’t win every game??

do you need to be so literal?

The President believes the season is still alive.....

5 wins and 7 weeks to go...

You don't even agree with yourself now. Love your passion mate, but it makes you punch blindly sometimes.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    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
