Is Mahoney the right guy?

Well in football terms anyway. He has 2 years of decent footy left if he's lucky, given his injury history.

Nice attempt at moving the conversation. Demonland is a forum where supporters bring up a topic and then others can have their opinion on that topic. This topic is, "Is Mahoney the right guy"  Now it would be wonderful if our topics were, Dees win three in a row, Hogan on top of the goalkicking,  Demons get a home preliminary final, but that is not reality.  You gave the game away again with your,  face to face like men comment. I reckon the extend of you fronting an MFC official would be complaining about the bread on your cheese board. The only board that would have you.

Ignorance is bliss apparently.

They both have had injuries, but were part of a defence Sunday that only conceded 7 goals. Pretty good I would have thought.  
 

Not to mention that we held both teams 'goalless' in one of those quarters, while generally keeping them to only 1 or 2 goals in the other.

Our defence, and the players we traded to get in there, are far from the problem right now.  It's what's happening further upfield that is the greater concern.

As @Wiseblood has said, let's get the whole list of staff from the Chairman down and start a topic ' are they the right guy'

If success is not forthcoming, change will happen

Just depends on the intestinal fortitude of all concerned to see how long before action is taken

As I have said, there are avenues to air your discontent, unfortunately it takes a person to come out from behind a cloak of anonymity

Or you can continue to whinge and whine on here

Intestinal fortitude

Using that phrase see if @Ethan Tremblay can come up with his usual witheringly funny gif or meme NOT

What makes you think that Port would let him go

What? I never once mentioned were letting him go?

I am talking about his draft year. Our first pick was Tom Sparrow in the 2nd rouns after we gave up pick 6 for May. 

Leading up to the draft we were having talks with clubs in trying to get back into the first round to snare Zak Butters. Jason Taylor was a very big fan.

DD no one is saying Port would let him go..

We are talking about pre draft, before he became a port player. 

When he is out of contract then yeah don't be surprised if he have a sniff. We may or we may not, who knows. Right now I see his long term future at Port Power.

If it is his responsibility to support the senior coach and the playing group by providing the resources that they to maximise their performance, then I think he is significantly underperforming.

Who are the bright, young assistant and development coaches on our books? Chaplin and Rooke have been around a fair while now, and neither convinces. What qualifies Plapp to be an AFL midfield coach? What are the KPIs for these guys, or do we keep shuffling their roles until we find one that suits? 

We haven't had a rising star nomination in almost four years - where is  our player development? Why do we only hit the draft hard once every four years when we have list lacking in depth and top end talent? The North trade was a disgrace, but only one of many in recent times.

Who is keeping Goodwin accountable for the performance of the team? What is Richardson bringing to the table? I'm assuming Mahoney ticked off Goodwin's contract extension before it went to the board - that alone should be cause for dismissal.

 

A disgrace.

We traded a first round pick for a first round pick.

We cashed in on what we knew was a strong first round. We backed ourselves in to be better in 2020. That's precisely the sort of attitude this club should have. Doing the opposite would just be "accepting mediocrity", wouldn't it?

FFS.

There's plenty to question about Mahony and the decisions our club makes in many areas. I really, really, do not think this is one of them.

Correct in your assertion in the first paragraph unfortunately you are replying to some posters who let emotion get in the way of thought or rationale

Agree with the second, but unfortunately none on here are in the Inner Sanctum of the Club, so have no idea of the background, raison dieter for some of the decisions, we only see, in some cases the outcome

Unless you have been in a managerial position, you don't have the experience or knowledge to know and understand the 'politics' behind some  decisions, and even then a footy club is a completely different beast

If Pert and the Board decide Mahoney has to go, that will happen, if they don't no amount of huffing and puffing on here will change that

Standard Answer...

How would you know what occupation people on here do? 
Management takes on many roles, and this club hasn’t been run well for a long time. Results speak for themselves

I know for a fact we were trying to trade back into the first round.

@dazzledavey36 could not have made it any clearer. He was fairly transparent in what he was saying that we were hoping to get into the first round of the 2018 draft ( we gave up our initial first rounder for Lever and our Hogan pick for May) to get Butters who was still on the board, it's got nothing to do with Port letting him go now  we were hoping to get him before they did

Edit.

@drysdale demon I just read your post#55 so disregard

Presumably the ridiculous 3 and 4 year contracts for KK and Preuss were Mahoney's idea too.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    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

    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
