Doesn't really understand anything from the coaches perspective.

Modern day players don't have a clue what goes on in the coaches box, they only know the little that has to do with their own position.

Any player that goes into coaching as an assistant says they didn't know what hit them.

They didn't know the half of what goes on.

Then it's another step up to the top job.

This appointment is a retrograde step to my mind...

The game has gone past just a couple of ex players sitting on the couch.

They're going with their personality pick rather than someone with a coaching background in the modern game.

As footy fans and people that take a real interest in the game, we deserve better.

Brad Scott, a left field choice perhaps. I know he has a job in the AFL but the others all have jobs off the couch, it shouldn't preclude someone like him.

So, if we look at all the TV footy media 9 have picked up Lyon, a good get.

...but they cancel it out with Lloyd. Right up there in the useless category.

Apart from Lyon the only other coach I can think of on TV is Mathews and he's long past it, doesn't really know the players and doesn't do his homework.

Players are on the ground doing the work. I like the way Nick speaks

He will be fine

What’s your point rjay?
When did Healy coach?

When did Brown coach?

Dunstall?

Sheehan?

etc. 

I think Riewoldt is the pick of the (small) bunch.

I think the old model worked for then but now the game is more coached than ever, for better or worse.

Reckon football media is behind the times with little to no new ideas.

My point is there should be at least one coach on the panel.

One coach off, one coach on. Not another player.

Take Nick on but get rid of one of the others.

Dunstall who is no longer on the show was the pick of that bunch for mine...an astute football brain.

I see where you’re coming from but my issue is that if you only have one coach, you’re effectively only getting one opinion on this show irregardless of the debate they contrive. 
But saying that, even on 360 the coaches seemed to align their views more often than not and it was all pretty meh. 
Maybe recently retired players will provide greater value insights to us after all as opposed to the antiquated views of the likes of Roos. 

Can only wait and see now.

I would rather listen to Nick Reiwoldt analyze a situation than the cryptic rambling of Ross Lyon any day

We differ greatly on this.

...and remember, Lyon is not coaching a club now so I expect him to be quite illuminating rather than cryptic.

I wonder if David King had thought he was about to get his old job back... 

To be fair Roo is probably the best of them left. They could have taken a big risk and get Hird back. At least he has, albeit completely tarnished, coaching experience.

To be perfectly honest i don't think roos leaving is much loss. i rarely found his comments interesting or particularly insightful. And he often had biases that he struggled to hide.

To be perfectly honest i think Roos leaving is a big loss for Fox, as for the Footy public generally, not so much. Probably we might find it a gain.

Being one who also finds it hard not to speak straight, i could fully appreciate the conditions he would have worked under there.

 As to his comments, successful coaches meld to players not to media hacks....eg Barassi, Blight and Sheedy

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
