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.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    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,
