As soon as Covid starting affecting the season, my hopes for this season greatly decreased. We are not a resilient club. There is something wrong with the culture in there somewhere and it’s been that way for a long time. An abnormal season like this was never going to suit us. 
 

You are kidding... I mean really...

Agree HFF.

Rules of a duel

Highlights of the rules include the steps of an apology, might call off the duel; proper dueling etiquette in terms of dignified behavior; the role of seconds; and what constitutes the end of a duel. Apologies. An apology on the part of the challenged could avert a bloody duel if delivered properly.

Appreciate your comments Fork.

A professional interview process would have concluded, yes, seems like a nice bloke,  made a few mistakes like all of us, yes, we understand that, however those errors rule him out fom coaches our Football Club.

Guys, come on.

This season is bad enough already without posters pretending to want to fight each other over a difference of opinion.

Just put each other on ignore.

Ding i've seen more fight shown between HFF & Dazzle than i've seen on or off the park for most of the year.

Could you at least give them a little more time so i can enjoy this stoush before killing it off so early!?... talk about a party pooper.

In the meantime I watched a friggin absolute cracker of a game last night.( WC & Geelong)

I will bet ALL our Players and COaching staff would have seen it, just see how much G,D and capacity to execute under pressure, was on display last night.

Ah, the game is is thriving !!!!

PS : Plus we did not have any tanties and push & Shove like Frawley & Papley last week . The players were too disciplined.

The personal snipes at Goodwin I feel very unwarranted, look at how he has managed to motivate/manage Bennell. You can have the best fitness staff in the world but if the senior coach is a pr!ck then the player isn’t going to want to get up for him. 

Goodwin and the selection committee have had some grave errors in the past, Thursday they made selection mistakes but he could’ve nailed every one of them and we’d still have lost by a fair margin. You can have a world beating game plan but if players are missing 15m kicks and 1m handballs nothing is going to work. 

Like many of the players at the club, he needs to lift his game. 

Bennell motivated himself. Goodwin and others around him have done their best to facilitate his comeback, and they’ve done a great job of that, but I don’t attribute one shred of Bennell’s actual motivation to succeed to Goodwin, rather than his deeply personal ones. And sure, a pryck of a coach would have made the task a very difficult one, but I don’t think not being a pryck is something a coach needs praise for.

Then have a listen to what Bennell said needed up to his debut against at Carlton, he spoken about Goody being almost a father figure and being very important to his return to AFL footy. You’re completely dismissive of the connection that he has with the players, I provided you with an example where the player himself has heaped praise on Simon for having that connection. 

Would Bennell have got back without Goodwin? Maybe. But Goody definitely played a key part once he was at the club.

Goodwin must simply win the next 2 games. Losses to Crows and Kangas could mean he’s gone by years end. 

Goodwin certainly needs to win the next 2 game and keep the peace within the media and the supporters and calm should  come ?

How long that lasts for is the Million dollar question.

Lets do something of an exercise, lets look at the season so far. No media person seems to be.

This is the most pure draw we have seen, play each team once.

We started out playing WC in Perth after being told that the season could be over, a hard way to start. The eagles in Perth.

As of now we have played one game less than everybody except  druggies.

We have only played in our HOME STATE twice, which is also less than everybody else

We have played 5 of the top 6 teams.

We have only played 2 of the bottom 7 teams, Haw and Carl and we beat them both.

We have just played the top 2 teams in 4 days, nobody else has.

We got pansed by the ladder leader after a 4 day break. The effort was horrible, the skills nonexistant.

The next 2 games not weeks anymore will tell us where we stand.

That’s right - unfortunately, nothing of this will be resolved until the game after N Melb. We will have needed to beat both comfortably, for the FD (and players) to be back on a level playing field. It will be how the form continues after that, which everyone will be looking at.

On the flip side - lose one or both of those games and the writing will be on the wall.

Absolutely. I just hope Bartlett is strong enough to stand firm

Good post.

As a supporter, for what that's worth (very little), I'm prepared to give Goodwin at least the next month. But if within the next month there is another display like the Port game, it will be very hard to give him much longer.

Many said last year that by the middle of the 2020 campaign we'd know whether Goodwin had turned the ship. As you point out here, we've had one of the stranger and tougher hands dealt us (draw and circumstances), so maybe a little bit of patience is required, however I don't hold much hope.

reasonable variables but they also haven't impacted most other teams that were expected to play finals and contend. we have looked very average in 5 of our 8 games with the Carlton game being poor after quarter time. it's been a tough season no doubt but last week they gave up and seemed to lack any real drive to want to compete with the genuine best. it's been a common theme for 50 years. at our worst we've looked bottom 4 and at our best for maybe 3 quarters total this year we've looked good. but the padding around it all points to a team that's improved on a 5-win season and not much else. but it's easy to improve when your starting point is trash.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile).

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
