I have the same question BBo. The MFC that I know of have not even said one is under way. Everyone is going on an article from Jay Clark. Some extreme speculation on here and I suspect 90% of it has no foundation in fact. But I guess it the finals time and as usual we have nothing but wild speculation. 

"But I guess it the finals time and as usual we have nothing but wild speculation" ...... and ,also as usual, we are not involved!!!

I don’t know why it’s so outrageous for shareholders to want to know what is happening with the business they’re investing in. The club is asking me to fork $600+ in a very tough economy. The lea

From the Age....

Two regional Victorians who tried to enter Melbourne to go to a strip club which was not open have been fined by police.

The men were stopped and fined at a checkpoint in the Macedon Ranges, after they entered a “Stage 4 restricted area to ‘attend a strip club’ only to arrive in Melbourne and realise no such premises were open”, a Victoria Police spokesman said.

Mahoney was one of our match day coaches during 186

Now he is our GM

He also did our last internal club review himself

And people wonder why we are systematic losers.

Well if they won’t get rid of Goodwin I’m glad they’re at least looking at getting him top quality support. At least then there really won’t be anymore excuses. 

I just hope he LISTENS to them for his sake and OURS.

nothing concrete in that story at all

the general vibe around the trips seems to be mahoney, plapp, and probably matthews go, with richardson moving into mahoney's role

i've not heard anything re chaplin and, quite frankly, our defence was strong this year so i'd be hesitant to shake things up enormously back there

no idea re who they're looking at replacements in the coaching ranks

Would have thought this was obvious with the Forward line and the lack of connection in the mids Resulting  in under Performance from Max's season and our clearance issues.

We used to employ Brett Ratten and Chris Fagin and they are 2 of the best coaches in the league right now. Maybe that says enough about the future of our Senior Coach

There is still nothing official that I can find that there is a review going on. If such a thing is happening it is most certainly looking like an internal review and we know what happens with those most times. Two weeks ago I wrote to Mr. Pert ( not Pertie!!!) asking if there would be a Members review night this year, via Tracy I received a reply this morning saying there would be one but date unknown.

Still no reply from our Chairman  on the review!

I wait in expectation. Ha ha!!!!!

There is the possibility he is having a few weeks off.

That is possible, but one would assume that a review would be needed to be undertaken ASAP before drafting of players / coaches etc. the longer the time goes by without comment makes me suspicious.

Exactly OLD DEE It appears that there will either be no review or a minor one.

As I have alluded to on here previously Plapp is quietly  looking for a job so some thing is going on

Just saw a tweet saying Mahoney is gone. Just relaying the info, no idea if true or not, but certainly seems to be rumblings. I think its time for a fresh face in that role amongst other roles in the FD.

Would think given the season is still going (not for us of course), exit interviews have just happened, players are being re-signed, coaches are being hired and fired, and of course the review is reportedly close to wrapping up, Pert would be quite busy at the moment.

I don't know a lot about the review underway, but given the comments by Bartlett during the year and the pressure he's under; I would be very very surprised if it was a minor review.

In past years there was a date in August that according to AFL rules off field staff had to be notified if there services were no longer required. God knows what the date was / is this year. But I suspect that the date has passed e.g all the North deletions. I also suspect that any coaches that are not required at the MFC would have been told by now they have just kept it in house.

No sorry DD. I did hear some little whispers a couple weeks ago about Dees being very keen on getting Luke Ball to the club in some capacity,  they say he is a FM in waiting so i wonder if there is some legs to that. For what its worth i think Luke Ball would be a wonderful appointment / addition to the club.

Hi @Demon3 are you able to paste the tweet or send out who posted it? Love to know where this is coming from. Like that the clubs keeps things close to the chest these days...but somewhat frustrating as an impatient fan demanding progress.

There's been non-official or club-linked talk from footy people that Richardson could step into Mahoney's role, Tom Morris has spoken about that possibility in the last couple of days too.

Excuse my ignorance but what is so special about Richardson? Does not seem to have set the world on fire anywhere he has been.

Don't know tbh. I know footy people say he's a level headed operator, which I guess is handy for a footy manager role, but aside from that I don't really know what his strengths are.

If Mahoney is going, it gives me shudders of memories of brutal corporate life when the club's website uses him as reporter of, and commenter on, the recent re-signings, with "WE look forward to..."

And, re the review, it IS Tom Morris / Fox sports (I know, I know!) but...

Well good news is we have Burgess signed to a 3 year deal (allegedly). And I’d much rather Pert over Mahoney to be conducting an internal review (though external would be preferred, but no doubt cost $).

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
