And they'd certainly not be doing their due diligence if they didn't headhunt Goodwin. And we wouldn't be doing our due financial diligence if we didn't look at it as a potential opportunity of getting out of a contract that we may have to pay out 2 years on (End of 2022) if we're in the same position this time next year.

I look forward to the incoming mockery 😎

He was basically offered the job before he took ours...

He turned them down then.

No reason to think he would change his mind now.

The club also committed to a new contract with Goodwin at the start of this season.

Despite how things have panned out I doubt they would have changed their minds on his long term viability no matter what some on Demonland may like to think.

He's ours...like it or not.

One reason might be a change of circumstance in the last 6 months and the potential of being out of a job in 1 years time. I'm not suggesting Goodwin would cut and run either. But suggesting a possible amicable arrangement whereby the club would only release Goodwin and he'd only leave, if Roos is prepared to step in.

Roos has no intention of stepping in.

My opinion, but I think the players were over him by the end.

He was needed to do a job, he did it and he moved on.

He did a great job by the way, no knocking him but I think his time was up.

Those who think Roos would have taken us to a flag if he stayed on are off the mark to my way of thinking.

Roos won't coach us again but it is a nice thaught. If pyke loses his job at Adelaide and I think he will then there might be an opportunity for Lyon or is that too left field.

Shame we can't trade coaches like other sports have in the past (see Doc Rivers NBA Celtics to Clippers for an example of a contracted coach being traded).

Trade Goody to Adelaide for a pick. Given Goody is a young and up and coming coach, I say he would be worth two first rounders (clearly I am kidding here folks, only clarko commands that kind of trade currency)

What makes you think the players were over him exactly? I don't agree with you, but open to hearing what made you think that, and then also what that tells you about the players if so.

Just a feeling based on performance and a few rumours.

Maybe off the mark but I do think his time was up.

I think many on here have have rose coloured glasses and forget the discussion of Roos as a poor match day coach.

Whilst I don't necessarily believe that, he was one dimensional and it wasn't the best brand of footy to play or watch.

...and for all the talk of defence first, we still got our share of beltings.

A big part of his job was to take the heat whilst we yet again attempted a rebuild.

A novice coach wouldn't have been allowed the time we got with Roos at the helm.

I think he came in did his job and time was right for him to move on.

The only reason Adelaide would be interested in Goodwin is if they were absolutely certain the MFC were just a team of dud players.

But here some of you are saying it’s Goodwin who is the dud.

Why would the Crows move on one dud coach only to replace him with another?

Whatever Goodwins faults, disloyalty is not one of them. He is a fighter and I would be staggered if he bailed ship.

Zero chance Roos will come back to coach Melbourne. I don't think he'll coach again. No need, we ballooned his super.

Fair enough mate, can totally understand how you'd feel that way.

I guess for me, I see it more as Roos could have potentially changed his game style and match day moves based on the far better personnel Goodwin inherited, but we'll never know. I do think it's important to remember the quality of players he had at his disposal to implement that brand of footy though.

The same things have often been said about Goodwin, and we've had a few beltings under him, with a far better list.

I reckon Roos only chose Goodwin to be his successor because he really wanted to get the hell out and not stuck with us for another year.

"yep he'll do. see ya's later, i'm off to Hawaii!"

I don't think he'll be coming back.

If the Crows put in a bid for Goodwin they should be drug tested. Roos and Jackson put us on the right path and Goodwin and the board stuffed it again in 12 months.

All a bit strange.

There is zero chance of Roos taking a senior coaching position next year- MFC or Carlton.  He may take a consultant role at CFC to top up the super, but nothing more.

Roos wasn’t fired by the MFC; he left.  He didn’t want to be a senior coach anymore due the the overwhelming demands it put on him and his family.  

If the club doesn’t want Goodwin, we don’t have to hope that Adelaide will bring him in; the club simply fires him.  With that said, you don’t fire a coach 10 months after a preliminary final.  Next year he may be under pressure, but it’s not there yet.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.
