My son was coached by McCartney and he liked him, I thought he was a jarring tactless boor (McCartney not my son). Different folks different strokes?

good summation

What we need most is people who can communicate with and get the best out of young men. from senior coach to any and all assistants.

If we lose someone like that, then that's a big loss to the club.

I think the modern player has to be handled differently !!!

Not able for tough/honest/real/criticism

A BIG NEED FOR HARDNESS AND PRIDE

Hnmm I reckon in society and for that matter any organization 

you need to be realistic, tough , honest and be able to deliver constructive criticism when its needed

As a society we have become a soft , gaumless and largely welcoming entity for all shades of grey. 

This is why we have rampant crime, hideous debt, and morals that stink to the high heaven.

All in the name of self fulfiling accomodation of every zebra that won't grow stripes.

Hardness , pride, respect for authority and doing things without fuss or arguement 

Yep that's the name of the game I reckon.

Yeah I'm Old school, and glad that I am!

How would Norm Smith go with coaching now Eh??

Personally Id love to have Smith coaching us.

Right on, Picket!

I blame Viney Snr for that. It was his job to fix it!

He has to go IMV!!!!

I wasn’t impressed with Maccas work at the Bulldogs and things look no different over here. Appears to be divisive and polarising figure. Then again he has had to work with some prime Prima Donnas who are very highly paid but of ordinary output. There are others who’s influence are questionable. Sometime I compare Viney Snr to a Connolly type. The rot extends to the core of our administration.

Were you familiar with his work at the bulldogs other than watching their games on tv ?

Norm would go straight for the jugular with any player - no room for personality outcomes or self-interest. It was 'Team, team, team' and what you are doing to improve 'Team'? Now, get on with it.

Thanks Brendan, I for one feel confidant that we are a much better club for having your services over the past five years, so Dee's Onwards and Upwards, in the long term the Team will show the Doubters that we are not just a Flash in the Pan....................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Changes have to be made at the club for the poor season we have had, it can’t always be the sacking of the head coach to make change.

And the head coach was awarded an extension before the season even started, a bit hard to fling him before the extension has even started.

I thought McCartney was quite pivotal under Roos and developed quite a few players. It was only when Goodwin took over that things started to turn sour. Perhaps this was because McCartney didn’t respect Goodwin’s tactics, and thought due to his lengthy experience, knew better hence leading to conflicts in the coaches box. 

Goodwin needs an experienced assistant coach who can be called upon by him when needed, but at the end of the day, someone who knows they’re still an assistant. We can’t have someone again who is stubborn and ungovernable. Malthouse would be the same as McCartney, Richardson might be the opposite.

So that’s it, bone Macca, not surprisingly that’s the management response, good ole boys can’t blame themselves I guess, if we have an active board of directors the only answer is to drain the swamp directly under them, it’s not a job for life you know boys.

I fear that's about right Bluey!! Get rid of the hard nut realist and surround yourself with Toady reality deniers and she will be right.

Typical response from a weak and poorly managed organisation. Throwing Macca out won't make one bit of difference.

Strangely....youre actually correct.  Many are making curious and erroneous evaluations as to the real worth of some in the FD.

As you oddly allude....many assumptions are being made.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football
