When will Demonland finally be consulted on match day strategy, team selection and general strategy?    

We will be interviewing Melbourne Football Club President Glen Bartlett on the next Demonland Podcast on Wednesday 1/7 @ 8:30pm If you have a question you would like us to ask let us know. L

Thank you. Happy with the outcome. We asked all the questions we wanted. If people aren't happy that we didn't dig hard enough well all I can say is they can start their own podcast.

Well done!

Some D'landers have been questioning why he has been 'quiet'.  Hopefully, they will be now be satisfied.

There might be a joke there about audience numbers, but I'm not going to make it.

I actually think it's almost a strength of Bartlett's to be almost invisible.  Not that I claim to have any inside insight into the actual state of play, but his being a low profile chairman seems to work from the perspective of providing a stable cohesive environment which lets our administrators and footy departments get on with the job.

Keen to hear more about the options/potential on a new home base, covid crisis and all.

Is he worried any club/MFC could fold/merge/be moved?

2020 is the year they had tagged as the year where we would be challenging for premierships in the plan, how does he think we are travelling against that?

The most obvious question will be an update on a home base. 
I’m not expecting anything remarkable  from him but I expect you guys to go full mongrel on him demanding clarity on it.

obvious q's:

  • what are the plans for the home base?
  • what effect will covid have on this?
  • is casey a fallback option?
  • what are plans for additional revenue opportunities given divesting of pokie revenue?
  • what are the short-term and long-term threats of 'rona decimating clubland from a staff / list perspective?
  • if we don't make finals in 2020 does that mean a new coach in 2021? (as outlined in their own future planning documentation)
  • how frustrated are the board by team's performances, given that success off-field is to a large degree dictated by success onfield?

The inequalities in the draw (normal season) as far as the Dees always playing at Geelong and in Tasmania when compared to other Melbourne based clubs.  What does the AFL say to the club about this? What does the club say to the AFL about this?

How on earth did he become a Melbourne supporter when he grew up in Perth, lived there up until about 10 years ago (so deep in his 40s), and actually play for the WCE? I don't get it. Not complaining though. 

Good question why he would volunteer and waste his time with us why don’t you ask him?

Well done guys, enjoying your podcast and this is a great get.

An update on the financial position of the club and the impact caused by COVID-19 to club finances would be great.

An update on how the 5 Million requested from supporters is going, and the high level split of how it will be used to pay off debt vs strategic plan etc

Goodwin has undone all of Roosy’s work and now he has no idea what to do. 
 

Get Craig Belamey to Coach the MFC with a few Assistants 

He would sort this place out in 6 months

What’s a day in the life of a club president actually look like? How many hours a day/week during footy season are you working on the club?

How do you evaluate the Footy adept as a whole/as individuals?

Goodwin's tenure as coach really needs to be put to Bartlett (and to not accept cop-out answers).

The board unnecessarily extended his contract for way too long, that puts us in a position that has us stuffed financially if we get rid of him early, or even more stuffed with membership retention (ultimately financially) if we don't.

Sorry RG but I don't agree while it might have some benefits inside the club from the outside it is perceived that we just roll over on anything the AFL bowls up. Most non dees supporters just see us as a weak small club without any balls. We need a bit more Eddie / Kennet in our chief. Right now the people in the outer want to know what is being done to change the team results. We have a silent Chairman and Silence CEO. Add a coach that believes in learnings. The silence is deafening.

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    A- Alice Springs. Happy hunting ground.     B- Backline. Finally found the non-leaking version.   C- Cairns & Covid. How a season was ruined.    D- Demonland. Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team
