If you click on the link you should be about see the podcast of the interview.

Very interesting insight. The feeling I got was that there has been reports that Goody can be quite stubborn, yet apparently according to Goody this is one of his strengths in taking feedback and open to everyone's ideas.

The big one that pricked my ears also was towards the end he was asked who was the best leader at the football club. He said everyone was different but the 2 that stand out in terms of the alignment of the club and direction of the footy club for the future was Max Gawn and Jack Viney.

Great interview 'dazzle', thanks for posting.

Makes me feel a bit more confident about next year...a good trade/draft period, some luck with injury and we will be up and about again...

Me too, he has great belief in this club and this is coming from someone who knows what success is all about. He is a huge wrap for Goodwin.

Good interview that had you listen to his every word.

He didn't think we were all that good in 2018 and were quite lucky to beat Hawthorn in the semi.

I heard the interview and he was more referring to the prelim, West Coast were red hot and we were pretty much done the week before. He stated Hawks could have got us had they taken some of their chances.

He wasn't referring to the season overall

2020 will tell all...

Thanks DD, really interesting interview. I was expecting him to say, we got lost and lacked direction this year, but to hear him say that he thought we were on the right track and extenuating circumstances (injuries, surgery etc) got in the way of where we wanted to be. I, like the previous posters, feel a little better about next year.

I have to agree. If you look back mid season we were not much better than some of this year. Stop start footy, bomb it long and turn it over a lot. Then for a magic 8 week period everything just clicked and we went into September on a high and played 2 great finals but then hit the wall. Wonderful interview and insight

All of the above. Great interview.  Restored some 'lost' belief in our coaching and playing groups, and very importantly, 2020.

That an easy draw rjay, though I would like to make finals on the back off beating some of this years finalists not just the bottom teams twice.

Top interview, Thanks for that DD.

I am pleased  that Brendan acknowledges Gawn and Viney as our two invested best leaders and that Petrac in his opinion will make  it to his potential.  Brendan helped build the platform and now the players need to produce..

I believe we  are in good hands. Time will tell.

You only had to listen to Clarry thanks macca in his B&F speech to realise how good he has been for the club. Great person who will be missed.

You do have to wonder about McCartney leaving the club. I know in some cases change can be good, but I worry that we've got rid of the wrong bloke and that had we decided to pull the trigger on Goodwin, would Macca still be around?

Very highly respected and it's hard not to look at this with concern. Let's hope we get our coaching right in 2020 though.

Macca was offered another contract but turned it down to pursue other opportunities.  I think he felt it was time to move on to new things.

Not sure that "Got rid of" is right, I get the feeling he thought it was time to do something else. Good luck to him and thanks for nurturing guys like Harmes and Trac.

Seems like a good communicator, so it's odd his communication is reputedly poor.

He was never going to say the players, coaches and club are rubbish.

He also didn’t have to say all the positive things he did.

Footy clubs are very incestuous environments. I reckon 5 years is about enough before the law of diminishing returns sets in, for both coach and club. For a senior coach maybe 5-10 years if successful. Clarkson, Scott, Buckley, Hardwick etc are pushing the envelope. And Hardwick aside, there are many in these clubs that feel the others should move on.

That's true, but they wouldn't have been anywhere near our score but for the two goals they got from kicking our guys in the head and pretending they tripped over.

    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
