Rawlings Leaves

Recommended Posts

I met him in a cafe yesterday and asked him about his and the club’s future.

He distinctly said he had another year of contract ahead🤷🏼‍♂️

I asked him if he had any explanation for our abysmal year and he put it down to the horrendous preseason .

He said he’d heard nothing about any player unrest, though obviously he wouldn’t have admitted anything to me

 

3 word analysis: lied to face.

Roos was certainly a fan of Rawlings.

I think this is a loss, however perhaps none of us actually know who of the assistant coaches is actually any good or not.

If Goodwin refuses to listen to anyone, maybe Plapp, Chaplin, etc. are all amazing, they just haven't been heard.

McCartney, Jennings, and Rawlings are those with experience and credibility, so it makes sense that they're the first to depart, whether pushed or not, as future job prospects are brighter than those of the others.

 

More changes sounds ominous, but from what I've been told not unexpected either. Pert seems to have the big broom out.

This is just pure guesswork.

Melbourne FC are screwed. Alan Richardson, Ed Langdon and whoever else will not right this ship. Guarantee that we won’t make a Grand Final until we have a Senior Coach like Alastair Clarkson.

Is there any coaching position that is untouched other than Goodwin? Every position has been changed or personnel  moved on.

Yet according to some here our performance in 2019 is nothing to do with coaching - its all our injuries and surgeries. Those people look pretty stupid now.  This is the biggest  1 year cleanout of coaching staff in the AFL for probably a decade

Sadly we are stuck with Goodwin. The cause of it all. 

 

 

Try two years, since the Tigers. You like hyperbole, don't you mate?

I would go along with that.

Really appreciated Jades involvement at MFC, 8 years is a long time for an assistant coach and he has helped the club out in a number of roles. Good luck in the future Jade we may get to see you as a senior coach in your own right one day. All the best and thank you for your resilience, I have never heard you being bagged on DLand and that say's a lot about your performance in your various roles.

About the coaches? Yep, absolutely is a guess. Just throwing up a different perspective.

 

A guess about Goodwin? I'm not the one stating that, I'm just suggesting that if it is true, who knows which coaches are any good..

May still end up being our Senior Coach in 3 years.

Yes agreed. Bring in Yzeeeee

If we can't Yze we could pursue Yzeuss as a backup option and he can bring Kardashians along to training and games.

I would've thought getting credit for a forward line turnaround would've been good on the CV and if we really wanted him we could've extended his contract and given him a choice of roles to further his career.

Agree with a lot of what you said mate, it's hard for us to know from the outside though.

Can't agree with the above though. He made it known he wanted to coach his own side for his own coaching development, but we dragged him back into the fold and his team ended up missing finals. None of that would have been what he had wanted for his career progression. He's now left so that seems clear.

He was already contracted. So why would we be extending him more than a year out? And he already had a choice of roles, that's why he took over at Casey.

I am not interested in hyperbole. I asked my source some direct questions

”What is the relationship between Richo and Goodwin like?

the Answer i got

”Goodwin has been told he is on borrowed time unless things change...”

Thanks for your service Jade. He seemed to play a bit of the grey-man, I never heard too much about him. For the more informed, do you think we under utilised him?

Not in a decade, the year before tiger premiership when they got rid of every assistant and started again.

Is that the same source who told you Adam Simpson gave 4 coaches votes to Gaff  in the game where he broke Brayshaw's jaw? Only for Ross Lyon to confirm he gave them? Lol

That is in stark contrast to what I have been told, and if some idiot inside the club has told you that he needs to be kicked out.

    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

    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.

    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. 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
