To Hell & Back Again?

Oh boy. Think the club has gone early after beating up the two bottom teams. Great production values but talk about tone deaf. 

 

If we lose to the Pies, maybe we can use all of the footage we're stockpiling to produce a six part netflix series titled "Goody's Last Dance"

Putting themselves under pressure..

interesting. 
 

Make it work...

See, i dont mind this actually.

We have had a couple of 9 goal wins against rubbish oppo, but this keeps the heat on IMO. I get a bit more respect for Goody each time i see him getting up the team. In public he comes across as all lovey-dovey and soft, but this sort of video shows he has passion and expectations like the rest of us have.

 

Cant fault the video as it shows how we responded.  2 good wins after a bad loss.

If we beat the Pies, and maybe also the Dogs, this will look like a great post. If we lose both.... not so much.

At least it shows something.

Keep winning and they can post whatever the hell they like.

Count me in.

It wouldn’t suprise me if Pert is behind all this. He has worked in Media for many years. 
The Whole approach this year has been to be bold and on the front foot. 
This is most visable through Ben and his line of questions. 
He is not afraid to ask the questions we want to hear. 
This above Video is the same

Interesting approach, we certainly haven’t had it before. 
Win the next 2 and the season opens up quite a bit

I guess they are actually keeping some of the behind the scenes footage going so I won't be shocked if we see a full fledged doco by the end of the year, though perhaps not if we don't make the 8!

As for this, maybe pumping up our own tyres a little. Might've liked to see this come out after the Pies game should we win.

It's promotion for the club and positive exposure for our sponsors.

With the world the way it is, we should enjoy any win that we can get.

Been a lot of negative comments on Goodwins lack of anger/personality/emotion and this shows some of it, I mean he is right the season right now is back on track, is it saying we are playing finals etc, but more it’s back in your hands, what will you do with it.

Like anything like this, if we win, it looks great, if we lose then he cops it even more.

I liked it. The address after the Port game showed a side of Goodwin you don’t see in his public persona.

Pretty rough to criticise the club about this.

I agree     Just keep winning !   and showing emotion or that you are invested in the result is not a bad thing....

Didn’t mind it personally, thought the opening was great and makes us feel connected as supporters while they are flying all over the country. It’s pretty much how most of us felt after the Port debacle. Season back on track is by no means job done, that was just the first step.

Loved it.

Showed a side of Goodwin we had not seen before.

I agree - he wasn’t sugar coating or corporatising the situation. Neither was he stripping the walls or throwing teacups around, which some people think he should be doing. Instead he was putting it back on the playing group to rectify the situation in a logical way.

Or when we win you can serve up those words and eat them with a big dose of humble pie. But you won’t. Not many people here do. They ride and ride and ride. Players and coaches, and conveniently forget the good but amplify the bad. It’s as boring as it is dishonest

Yeah I'm ok with it, it's a short 3 min clip as opposed to a 5 week doco series. Showed a side of Goody that I think a lot of people wanted to see and are glad they did.

i'll get shot down but don't care. way unnecessary from the media dept.. clearly just to show they are doing something or what? who signs off on this [censored]? bartlett was badmouthing the team ten days before and then this.. we lose tomorrow night (and god forbid next week) and this thread comes up like fire. of course i want my team to win and to see good quality behind the scenes [censored], but jesus... the teams we beat are nudda. keep winning dees. at this stage we are still in the 64th pit of hell.

I liked it as well. Nice bit of content for fans to enjoy in this strange season. For those that don't know they've actually done 4 of these videos now starting from round 6. I would say that someone in the social media team read the room and thought fans were furious about our Port Adelaide game and held off producing the next video until they could show something in a more positive light.

Here's the other videos for those that are interested.

Round 6 vs Gold Coast

 

Round 7 vs Hawthorn

 

Round 8 vs Brisbane

    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

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
