He says Goodwin is too stubborn and has never seen a single Dees loss - he thinks they're all just bad days!

If only he'd taken a leaf out of Norm Smith's book - Norm watched endless replays of the '54 GF defeat over and over again, analysing where the Dogs picked us apart. Made the team bullet-proof for a decade.

Goodwin had the same opportunity to win 5 premierships in 6 years and completely blew it. 

I've heard very similar. it's his way or the highway. and some he's getting a few players offside as well. 

Sadly if half the stuff flying around is true we may need to make that decision soon.

I did ask direct questions. I am waiting for some answers before i would even think about Posting on here.

FMD some posters love having a go, it’s unbelievable and then there are some posters who believe nothing is wrong with our club

Yeah, those posters having a go should completely lay off.  It's a disgrace. 

Stop picking on WYL everyone!  It's not nice!

Yep. i've heard he's got a lot of people offside just being incredibly stubborn, unable to take critisism and unwilling to change. 

it's players, assistants, staff. 

Buckley and Hardwick were similar but they changed. Goodwin either needs to change or go in my opinion because we can't lose good football people over this in my view,

I'm not sure about under Roos. but i've heard Peter Jackson and Jordan Lewis were both at stages concerned about it. as was Macca. but ultimately when we're making finals and in a prelim it doesn't seem like as big an issue as when we're 17th. 

there was stuff about this flying around at the time of the pre season camp drama, so it's been going on a while, but i think this season has really made a few people show their true selves a little bit.

Not a chance GV...this just out from CCTV footage (from a source deep within the inner sanctum)...

Admin have alegedly lost a few already but more than likely unrelated.  Possibly coincidental.

Edit:  one of those apparently instigated by the club (early cost cutting in prep for expected revenue loss in 2020?).

McCartney, Jennings now Rawlings leaving......Goodwin under the pump big time which is to be expected. 

The word around the club is that Rawlings was a great communicator, transparent, driven & a bloody good tactician & coach.....well respected by all players too.

Good luck Jade.

I heard that the entire board come down to the footy department on one occasion and Goodwin kept referring to David Thirin as a 'suit' before taking his polo off punching his chest and howling strange noises kind of like a war cry. My source said at the time the bahaviour seemed a bit bizarre but shrugged it off as dancing the fine line between genious and insanity. True story.

Goodwin knows he is on thin ice. 

By that i mean, he has been told. He has to learn to work with others, very quickly. 

Thanks for the comments on this.

If Buckley can change, anyone can.

I have faith in Pert and the Board not to sit on their hands after this year ( and last year's heroics)

You ought to try it some day, giving back to the community, it gives perspective to life rather than sitting on a computer whinging about why a football side is losing games.

Possibly would’ve been a really good senior coach for us this year.

Don't understand, we move Rawlings away from Casey 1/2 during the season & then he walks?

Whats that say about the club?

Always amazes me that when information is given out in good faith, people on here get hammered. 

It’s fine. I have known my source for many years. Some of his info has been first hand 100% whilst at other times he is hearing down the line. 

Football Clubs do lie...

How stupid is that comment - a club can’t speak lol - people lie not company’s or clubs -  also Goody is like our next Frank Checker Hughes.  Norm is a legend of course but Checker coached him and mentored him , was with him for all 10 flags.  Checker is the most underrated character in AFL history!

It says that his younger brother is the new CEO at North and has offered him more money to come back to one of the clubs he played at.

Because we are making changes after a poor season.

Question Red. Are we asking them to move on, or are they leaving us? 

Big difference I’d suggest.

I disagree.

Goodwin has clearly NOT, as you say, "had the same opportunity (as Norm Smith) to win 5 premierships in 6 years..."

Goodwin has been coach of MFC for ONLY 3 years. He has another 3 years before this comparison is valid.

Goody now can't win 5 in 6 like (Norm) but still I back him to coach Melbourne to at least one flag within the next 3 years. So there! :)

    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. 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
