Look who liked the Goodwin Interview on the Dees Instagram. 

Now it's not unusual for people associated with other teams to like something on social media and he has a history with the club. 

I can't recall seeing him liking anything from the club but having said that I was never looking. 

I'll be positive for once in my Demons supporting career and I'm going to take this as a sign.

Now. Now, Demonland. We're Melbourne Supporters. We're supposed to be Pessimistic, not Optimistic.

Todd Viney: Tough, courageous, loyal servant and great leader of the MFC.  Well respected generally in sporting circles including tennis and seen as being of good post football pedigree having played an important off-feild hand in success at Hawthorn and Adelaide.  Welcomed back to the MFC with open arms and initially credited with playing a role in our rebuild from the depths.  That he refused to put up his hand for the senior coaching gig despite some initial success as caretaker was a sign of both humility and maturity in my mind.  Everything rosy 2018 with Taylor and Viney credited as architects of our list rebuild that has bought us back from obscurity to contention.  ... Fast forward a year and according to some on Demonland Todd is seen as part of the problem of the failed season we have just endured - see ya, good riddance Todd Viney 😞 .



Adam Yze - Come on down!!

Can I ask why Todd is part of the problem?

That’s good enough for me.

This should be close to happening if it is going to happen, cant see what the real hold up would be?  Both teams not in finals,  both teams have made announcements about new signings and departures (Melbourne anyway) 

What would be the hold up? Contracts waiting to end?

Possibly waiting to soften the blows of announcing the re-signing of Nibbler and C Wagner.

Don't ask me, I don't pretend to know.

Refer to the Todd Viney is Leaving Confirmed thread.

Yep apparently it's his fault because him being around makes us biased towards Jack and that Todd was a part of the "boys club" or something like that. Sports fans sure know how to eat their own. 🙃

If Yze is the best in the business, then I'm all for getting him.  Who are the equivalents at other clubs?

Can't help but think that a number of people are wanting this to happen, mainly because he's a former MFC player.

To be honest its more about the Clarko influence for me, being an ex Demon star doesn't hurt though.

Should have zero to do with it.

And I think you are loosely throwing around the term "star".  He was a very good player, but not what I'd consider a star.

As far as I'm aware, he's had 7 years under Clarkson. Don't be so quick to fob him off because you assume that people want him back because he's a former player that did very well for us.

A chance that other teams want to have a chat to him, or were waiting to see if there's anyone else available from one of the teams still in the finals. No point jumping early only to find a better candidate was available a week later. While it's great to have role filled straight after the season, as long as there filled before the players start learning new games plans etc. then we can wait.

Read through the 6 pages of this thread and see how many have added the "bring him home" as part of their reasoning for wanting him.

You asked if people were only wanting him back because he was a past player. Someone replies that he mainly wants him because of his experience under Clarkson. You then hone in on the off the cuff comment about him being a past player being a bonus as the only reason they wanted him back. You clearly aren't looking at this subjectively like you state others aren't.

I'm sure if you re-read what I actually have written, you will realise how many errors you have just posted.

Have a good day, Adem.

We have a vacancy for a strategy coach.

Yze is coming from being the strategy coach for one of the best strategical teams in the comp under one of the best strategical coaches in AFL history.

People can have whatever reasons they wish, but that's the reason he's being sought out by the club for the current vacancy.

I only know how well he’s doing because he’s ex-Melbourne but him being an ex-Dee has nothing to do with why I want him. Hawthorn managed to finish fourth last season (and didn’t do too badly this season considering their list) with an average list, they knew their opposition and prepared to counter them better than any other team. Yze’s role at the Hawks is match day and opposition coach, he’s exactly what we need.

What was his role in 13,14,15? Hawks played just as bad as us at times this year.

Was their goal kicking and development coach early on, improved their goal kicking accuracy by nearly 10%.

Backline coach from 2015 season. Strategy coach this season.

Goal-kicking and development coach in 13 and 14 then 15 he was their backline coach. 

Hawks players speak very highly of Yze in assisting their kicking accuracy.

Even if he did not have any other strengths, which he certainly does, kicking development alone would be plenty good enough reason to bring him in.

GO DEES.  GO YZE

thats your opinion, mine is that ooze was a star and having an ex player back who has done his time under the best coach of the modern era is appealing,, if you cant understand that then its not my problem.

    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
