Hardly consider finishing 5th once in a decade ‘success’, but each to there own. Personally I hope Demons perform better then that but I guess to some people 5th once in a decade would be enough.

 

Ok then Einstein, who is this mythical candidate for the director of coaching with the exemplary track record that you speak of? Who should Mahoney have signed? Obviously Richo is not good enough for you, so you must have someone in mind.

All ears here champ.

So Mahoney has employed a failed senior coach to an as yet un named position while he does an internal review into amongst other things our coaching panel and deficiencies. Is this an episode of UTOPIA. Some speculate he may be a mentor or head of coaching. Masterstroke, get a recently sacked unsuccessful coach to mentor or oversee our struggles coach.  You could not make this stuff up. As for highly regarded, please, not by St Kilda. Always highly regarded on the way out the door.

Suppose we all see things differently.

Seems like a half reasonable coaching  ‘plan B’ for next year if there is no immediate coaching improvement in the early part of next season.

Next week should shake a few non performing or past it players off.

Step after that  ( might take a while to announce it due to list finalisation ) would be to really tidy up the leadership group.

And the wheels on the bus ......

Lyon, Clarko, Roos, Simpson,Choco, Malthouse. Plenty of others who have a better track record then Richo 33% win rate.

But yeh absolute master stroke by Mahoney, the guy at the helm as we dropped from preliminary finalists to 17th.

You've also suggested Clarko and Simpson, the most successful current coach and the reigning premiership coach ... as if they'd take on a director of coaching role at a different club.

Rest assured, we're laughing at you, not with you.

Simpson & Clarkson? You’d like them to take a demotion to come to MFC from their current head coaching positions?

We had Roos, and he had no desire to continue in the position, and it would only serve to undermine Goodwin or anyone else for that matter, considering he personally held the head coach position himself.

Or Lyon, Malthouse, and Choco, all 3 of which would be actively harbouring desires to fill a new head coaching position themselves, again undermining Goodwin (or any other head coach’s) standing and authority.

You’re clearly far too clever for the rest of us mate. Well done.

Kick and squeal, I dont squeal tuppence. Go and snag, says it all. What is so special about snagging Alan Richardson? Garden variety coach. I note you did not address my comments about being snagged without a designated role. WHY NOT?  And please do not build Burgess into some kind of guru just get. Reminds me of when we recruited Diamond Jim. Hopefully he is much better than Mission but my memory is one season he was with Port they crashed and burned fitness wise after a flying start. All it is is we now have a AFL standard fitness guy. And how did we get him? The rotten SA connection. So either address my concern about appointing a coach without a role or do not bother responding DD

What a clueless response.

Did you have any brilliant fitness gurus that the club should have chased instead? I am also guessing that you emailed the club these names?

Why wouldn’t they if Mahoney is as good as some are sprouting he is? 

Some posters here have some very low standards which is comedy gold.

No wonder we sit 17th mate, it starts from celebrating mediocre outcomes such as the Richo appointment, but continue doing so. That’s why the dees are the laughing stock of the competition and will continue to be when the supporters celebrate the recruitment of a coach who has never finished higher then 5th in a decade and was just sacked for underperforming, by the Saints of all teams.

Some people here think we are on our way to our next premiership by taking St Kildas sloppy seconds. You know it’s bad when St Kilda are laughing at us

Yes Kent, I wrote similar somewhere else. The review is to find out amongst other things what support the coaching panel requires.  And then we charge ahead an appoint Richardson. His role is unknown, but lets assume it is to give support to Goodwin or oversee coaching. How will that sit with Goodwin, having a coach who out coached him only a month or so ago.

Supporter gets angry because Mahoney doesn’t convince Hall of Fame coach to break contract, retire from coaching to take up lesser role on less money at different club.

There’s a lot of ‘old man yells at cloud’ about this.

Not making much sense young un. No one called for a Hall of Fame coach, what code is that anyway? We foolishly thought we would have the review Mahoney is doing into himself and the footy dept to tell us where our coaching team needs to be strengthened.

The code is Australian Rules Football. There is a Hall of Fame and there are coaches that have been inducted into it. Clarkson will be inducted.

My reply was to a poster suggesting Mahoney should have convinced Clarkson or Simpson over to become a coaching director.

Nice try on the condescending ‘young un’ too. Didn’t mind it.

What makes you think the review is not completed?  Afterall, Pert and Mahoney have been working on it since June.  They are well prepared.

Fair dinkum some people struggle.

I have Olisik on ignore, for obvious reason. Sorry kids you go on ignore. Normally I only put people on ignore because of troll like behaviour or repeated offensive posts (and never because i disagree with their opinions).

But you are going on ignore because i fear if i read any more of your posts my IQ will plummet. So it is self preservation.

The last straw? Critising Mahoney for doing his job and appointing a respected, sought after assistant coach before completing a review.

Two obvious points.

Firstly, they had a review mid season. You know the one that saw Jennings and Macca get the Tijuana brass, with the latter opening up a spot for a senior assistant with extensive AFL experience (you know, like Richardson).

Secondly Richardson most certainly would have been picked up by another AFL club as an assistant. Having already established and created the need for an a senior assistant with extensive AFL experience (you know , like Richardson) and made a clear decision Richardson was the man you wanted it would be ridiculous to risk not getting him by phaffing around. That's now how such a cut throat industry works. There is a small window to lock in key appointments in and that window is now.

Mahoney has now inked two key appointments (both highly respected and in demand in their respective fields), critical in terms of creating some certainty at the club, which at a time when dees players (and players considering coming to the dees) are considering their playing options and/or how they will attack preseason is super important.

These appointments also help give fans, players and sponsors something positive to focus on which in some small way mitigates against the impact of such a woeful season. Imagine if we were still out in the market place trying to get a senior assistant on board and an elite fitness pro (neither of whom grow on trees)?

After the season we have just had we hardly scream destination club. Yet Mahoney nailed two key appointments. But Sorry Kids you don't rate him. Please.

Anyway its been fun. Bye.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle.

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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

    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.

    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
