Another Coach Bites the Dust

Agree with this.

We have had a terrible year as far as injuries go, but to only have won 4 games, including falling over the line against the bottom 2 teams is a huge concern.

Have always detested his corporate language. I've always seen that type of crap as someone who can't think on their feet, so uses canned, empty rhetoric and [censored]-speak. Maybe he can't get the players to relate to him.

Or they are too friendly. There is a fine line...

Very sad for Al...a man of great integrity and football knowledge.

He’s the fall guy for a club with awful administration and years of poor recruitment.

Would welcome him with open arms to the Dees.

I dislike it too but the reality is you have to spin some kind of BS at a post match press conference. Roos was very slick but occasionally he ran out of smart answers and we got the 'veil of negativity' or him blaming players.

Honest answers at a press conference right now would involve criticising a lot of players for basic errors, reinforcing just how bad the injury run has been and how little there is at Casey, highlighting the ways they have moved players around to try to get a team going - which then lays out their plans to the opposition as well as focuses in on the players who are out of position or under performing. 

I think the real Goody gets along very well with his players, but we have to see more wins to get the real version at press conferences.

Have to say I liked Richo.  A genuine no bullshite type of bloke.

As evidenced by pulling the pin himself. I know it was probably jump before pushed, but for whatever reason, most coaches wait for the shove.

Goodwin can't get the players to relate to him, and also they're too friendly. Got it.

There's also the alternate explanation that he believes what he's saying.

I highly doubt Goodwin is the next coach to get sacked....

Hinckley for one has had his list under performing for 4+ years

I should have also added "class". Just saw a bit of his presser - he certainly demonstrated that.

That's true, and a lot of them are just adding corporate mumbo jumbo on top of saying we need to stick to the game plan, fight the year out, encourage the good aspects of play etc etc which is spot on. I'm saying there's more he could elaborate with but there's little incentive to do so when it's only going to be negative. As boring as it is there's a good case for sticking on message.

Richardson opened the door just before someone gave him the boot. I have no doubts that they will be concentrating on Ratten and Butters little mate Scott. I like Ratten and it would be sad to see him get involved with the saints. It would be his death knell.

Can't be sure but his payout might have been the same whether he resigned or was sacked

Was he contracted beyond this season?  My guess is he hasn't lost out in a monetary sense. 

But not many resign although RDB was never sacked in his 4 stints as coach.  Matthews?  Jeans?  Kennedy?

Yep, a classy exit. However, I thought his whinge about umpires on the weekend showed he knew the end was near.

$$$$$$$$$

If you're pushed, you get a payout. If you jump, you don't.

Next year is make or break for Goody. 

What gets me is that we never look the better organised team, even when we win. 

That we can dominate contested footy and clearances, but still get beaten, suggests our system is flawed. 

Goody no doubt knows we have weaknesses both in personnel and cohesion. The big question is can he fix them?

Saints & Demons continue to have turmoil, sacking of coaches & both hold longest premiership droughts 64&66!

If Port or Adelaide don't make finals this year I could see Hinkley and Pyke not being in their jobs by the end of this year. I would have thought Goodwin is safe for another 12 months (and, obviously, longer if performances improve).

 If the Adelaide position is available, is Goodwin really safe at Melbourne for another 12 months... 🤔

Harvey is currently  at a functional club, well resourced with an outlook of success.

Why would he be keen to go to an essentially  dysfunctional  one, with half the toys and assets , run by people that make Porpoise Point look normal !!

I get he's  the prodigal  son and all...but he'd  be mad imho 

I see your point bb, i get that he's at a well resourced club and the Saints are dysfunctional, but does he want to be an assistant for the rest of his coaching days? that's the question you have to ask yourself.

Or does he want to do a Fagan and  venture into other areas of a club and wait 20 odd years for a gig?

It might not come around bb.

It doesn't seem that Harvs has the skill set Fagan has for other areas of a football department, but i could be wrong. 

I'll tell you one thing though, if they select Brad Scott for the top Job, they might as well board Moorabbin up. 

In saying all that he might not put his name up to go through the process if certain individuals are also going through it  i.e Brad Scott.

They might see it as a dead end.

Players make coaches, if you ain't got the talent you ain't going to get near the big prize.

Just look at Hawthorn they have a very good coach who has got them premierships but right now they are struggling because their talent list is dropping. 

Do we have a good coach with a less than wonderful list ? The board seems to think so because they re appointed him before this season even started. 

I am far from convinced. I seem to remember Roos did not even want to interview him a few years back hmm.

2020 will either be a good year for the MFC or the end of Our coach.

Actually  OD...having read of Smith I'm  more inclined to believe  Coaches make  players...or rather...they determine their careers.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    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
