We’ve got a few vacancies - let’s get both of them.

Hodge is absolutely locked in at Brisbane for next year and probably the short/medium term but it's worth working on him now for if/when he comes back to Victoria.

Yep, Fagan was saying this morning that Hodge will be a part time coach for them next year as well as doing some media and corporate work while he decides what he wants to do in the long term.

Scotty Burns is now red hot favourite to replace Pyke.  scott-burns-favourite-to-be-next-crows-coach

Burns is another from the Clarkson coaching school.

Having just lost Darren Glass (assistant coach) to WCE as List Manager, does Burns' departure mean there is less chance of prizing Yze from Hawks...

For me, the lack of noise and action on this now suggests its not going to happen.. and you would have to assume our sights are set on coaches that are still in the final 4, because we have at least 2 spots to fill?

Macca - Richo

Jennings - ??

Rawlings - ??

Personally, I would very much like:

Macca - Richo

Jennings - Yze

Rawlings - Plapp (Casey)

Plapp - Andy Collins

That's a good list and i like the Collins name thrown into the mix..  Im  a fan of Giansiracusa, but cant see him leaving the dogs. Of the 4 sides  left in it: Scarlett would be great from Cats - but cant see that either. No one at GWS apart from a Lenny Hayes but has recently re-signed, at the Pies i like them all, Harvey, Hocking and Longmuir, plus Matt Boyd and the Tigers have Kingsley who is very well regarded.

Yes, and that’s probably who Garry Lyon was referring to in that interview that got this thread in a bit of a lather (myself included). Makes me think he’s not actually going anywhere.

Burns is a South Australian too so this isn't surprising.

It possibly does somewhat unfortunately. May come down to what role the Hawks want Yze for in 2020 as opposed to the role we want him for. He's still contracted to the Hawks, but clubs generally let assistants go if it's for a promotion. If Burns leaves it does hurt our chances a little IMO.

Burns’ name comes up whenever there’s a senior vacancy, the fact he’s from SA has probably added fuel to the fire. Even if he does take the Adelaide job, I still think Yze will leave. I’m lead to believe and I’m of the understanding that Yze leaving has been planned for quite some time.

Still no nooze on ooze?  

In fact no news on anyone. i mean Nth Melbourne have manged to replace assistant coaches, Essendon have done the same, so have Carlton and Hawthorn, we lose 3 major coaching cogs, replace 1, dont announce what his role is and dont hear a single thing regarding likely replacements.. except speculation on here on who might be good.

And yes i know.. be patient and all that and we dont leak and just because its not in the news blah blah blah but it feels suspiciously quiet on this front to me.

I actually do wonder whether we have announced further appointments because the people we have appointment are currently contending in finals? Should we expect an announcement either this week or next?

Things have cooled somewhat, not sure if it's due to the Hawks waiting on Burns, but possible. Yze is contracted for next year, he's in the middle of a 2 year contract, but as mentioned earlier, teams let assistants leave for a promotion (which could be another factor).

Word is he thinks the list is in a good place and from the outside there's some obvious answers to our problems currently, so I think he's still very much considering the move in a positive way.

Fingers crossed.

Do you agree LN that its very quiet on our replacements for Assistant coaches though? i know we have speculated but i haven't heard anything in the press at all.

Yeah, but it seems relatively quiet in general on that front, at least from what I've seen in the media. I know they usually let them know in August, so maybe it's just still getting past all the obstacles of finals, post-season holidays and interviews etc.

Not happening now.

He was keen. Hawks upped the ante, convinced him that his future was with them and that they expect him to honour the second year of his contract. Would have been a perfect get for our current needs.

He's apparently pretty shattered he wasn't able to make it happen.

Don't know, but gut feel is no. Sounds like the Hawks really value him and the next time he leaves them (if he does) it will be to be a senior coach.

    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

    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

    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.

    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
