Dees interested in Roughead

Obviously a 'wish list' on the 3 forwards suggestion JD.  Can't see any of them, other than maybe Rooey, on big multiples of current media $, coming down for a short stint.

We could do alot worse than surround ourselves with a 'Hawthorn' biased crew of assistants and line coaches IMV JD.  I would be ecstatic to see a combo of Lewey, Roughy and Hodge join us.

What an amazing get Hodgey would be,  not just for his experience, footy knowledge and a succession option (whether Goody makes it or not) but also the drawing power those three would have getting potential top line recruits over the line in the super competitive trade circus.

Good one Rusty seeing as none of our old players at Hawks have seemingly expressed interest in their old club's plight......

What a great move that would be, either on field or off field.

Could he take CP5 aside and show him how to kick too?

Roughy is champ - no doubt about

He’s also been through some tough personal [censored]. So apart from knowing a bit about footy he also knows a bit about resilience 

Bonus.  He seems to be a decent bloke

Yep.  I’d have him as a forward line coach in a flash!

Only if we can’t get an ex-backline player to come to us as forward coach then I’d consider Roughy.

Roughie and Hodge are probably both already out've our price range.
We go for the no name assistants.

Roughead a chance, but Lewis will continue further down media street.

Huge yes from me. One of my favourite ever players from opposition clubs. Because of all the Buddy, Lewis, Hodge, Mitchell conversations, Roughy's actual supreme football ability gets underscored. 

My question would be - can he communicate what he knows? Can he influence Petracca, Weideman, Hannan etc... in forward craft? 

Great players don't always perform in roles where character and communication are required, but if there is even a sniff of potential with Roughy, go get him.

Sorry if the second of my paragraphs following is a subject of other threads.

I like the idea of us getting in that 'recent playing/leading Hawksness' (and Yze) as much as anyone, particularly given the characters and cache of those mentioned. And I read Jordan's comments about us (including Goodwin) as sufficiently positive that he at least wouldn't warn the others off. Their interest might also depend on who we get to replace McCartney and whether they can see learnings value there.

BUT, I think fixing our issues should be the driver of who we get to help address them. The guys in this thread MAY be suitable (thoughts?), but their might be someone BETTER (thoughts?) Our eyes alone tell us the big issues - by themselves but also as far as the 'craft' that Roughhead, Lewis and Hodge have - seem to be 1. delivering the ball into F50, both to a player and to a player in a good place, and 2. grabbing it and using it when it gets there (along with 3. having a 2nd and 3rd string forward line for much of the year - but they can't help with that! - and 4. turnovers - who CAN help???) Supporting our eyes - and it's just a simple selection - we rank 5th for I50s, but 11 and 12 teams respectively are ahead of us for R50s and R50s against total points scored, and we rank 1st for ratio of behinds to goals.

I realise R50 stats vs US in individual games, rather than teams' year averages, are more relevant (ALL 17 other teams were ahead of us last year in R50s against total points scored, but that reflected (partly) us not letting it GET to the D50 in the first place?) However, that depth of analysis is beyond me! Hence my "the eyes have it", with simple (simplistic?) stats to support it...

Very true as they may have never needed to struggle to become a great player.

But that vision of him coaching the oppo backman in that VFL stands out for me.

Bugger, Roughy would have been a great help to us. 

He might have a monumental task at Moorabbin managing the list though, they are linked to so many players this off-season they could field 2 AFL teams next year.

I get the desire to bring in good people from successful place but what experience does Roughead have in list management? 

I wouldn't be too upset about this one. If I were in charge I'd be spending the list management budget on some smart analytics people to get ahead of the curve as well as experienced recruiters. Mesh the old school with some new school.

Doesn't mean he's going to run the show. Would likely be an assistant for a couple of years until they get panicky, sack the incumbent and promote him even if he has no idea.

Couple of years working for Maloney and Viney, nope, you would finish up selling used cars on Sundays, it’s everyone else’s fault, especially that old Macca guy, singlehandedly drove our great club into the ground.

Glad these successful people got to the bottom of it.

    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

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
