Mahoney has produced zero. 

Would he get a job at one of the top clubs as footy ops / GM ?

zero chance. 
get rid of him. 

Well he could have  cost the Saints the game, when he jibbed a mark that would have made it safe for them. Watch the last 2 minutes and he turns away and misses the ball to avoid contact in a marking contest. Guarantee Ratten will not like what he saw.

smells a bit like ratten coming in as assistant to richardson last year at the aints; you just knew that if richo didn't deliver the good in the first half of the year ratts would get a go in 2020 and beyond

Good win should just GO  Why wait until next year

another year of tragedy

Just having  Adem  Yze  coming home to the Dees will have a big inpact. Can you  imagine  the awe and the respect . One of our greats and not using the term loosely. His foot skills were exquisite and goal sense was uncanny. 

Clarkson has honed Yze's coaching skills he is ready and waiting. 

If he does come home  it will be something.  I can dream.

On paper, our coaching box is pissypoor in comparison to most other teams (apart from Norf). 
 

About time we got some glam in there that the players can be inspired by. It will also be good is they can coach well.

I just showed my wife some highlights videos of Yze and she quickly noted, "Oh, he is in Fritsch's spot" because of all the close-to-the boundary 40-out beauties Yze was slotting.

A theory is born - Yze is coming to Melbourne specifically to sort out Fritsch's kicking.

Worth noting - in his third season Yze kick 9.16, so he knows how to miss and knows how to correct the problem.

 

You owe Mrs Goffy a present tonight.😂

Goffy we don't need Yze to straighten Fritta out. It's purely in his head.

Ftotta needs to develope some muscle and start believing in himself more!

Once doing that he will have some swagger ( confidence) and kick straight tackle well and lead straighter and nit Into the  pockets.

I am confused. Is this a thread for "trolls". Most of these comments are straight from the "Trump" twitter play book.

 

Every thread ends up as either sack Goodwin or crying that someone we moved on did one good thing for their new club.

That's good. Better than sleepy Joe where Demonland would go offline with boredom.

Some ask what does Adem bring. Well, the reason Chaplin joined was he came a current player fresh out of the system at Richmond. I could not see the reasoning for this at the time and still don't. Coaching is an ever evolving art and many assistants have been found wanting in the main role. I am not interested in the romance of Adem returning to this old club, he wont be putting on his boots for us but I do believe he has something to offer as an assistant coach which may further develop the team

Adem's skill set has already been listed here but in pre season Clarko is happy for Adem to be the main coach. He has moved up their heirachy to be Clarko's confident and match day strategy, an area we all know is not Goody's strong point. Our existing coaches have been there for a while and it is time to bring in experienced assistants with fresh ideas. Under Clarko we have seen, Simpson, Beveridge, Ratten and Bolton with only the latter not succeeding take over the reigns with some premiership success.

If Goody is as obstinate as people say only a strong minded, well credentialed and respected assistant will get through to him. Goody also will be aware his career is on the line next year so he needs all the help he can get.

Kent was also perennially injured and wanted a 3 year contract

There are two potential answers to this question. 

1) having a smaller coaching staff will help bring down overall running costs.

2) I wouldn't be surprised if the AFL provides greater flexibility to the soft cap for 2021. This would enable us to go after 2 or 3 key assistants, at the same time as cutting superfluous staff and running a leaner machine.

The AFL needs clubs to perform next year, otherwise membership bases with kick a hole through the balance sheets of clubs and the AFL will have a larger problem on its hands with a new TV deal on the horizon.

If we did end up with Leppitsch and Yze and retain the rest of the top brass we’d have a very top heavy set-up. I’d question Richo’s role. Bringing on experienced assistants would make his role redundant you’d think. Mahoney has to be skating on thin ice as well although I’ve no idea who might replace him and haven’t heard anything either.

Looking forward to seeing what the outcome of this review is. Very interesting times indeed.

But why on earth would Goodwin take any more notice of him that he has with other assistants.

Two time premiership player - I know what I'm doing.?

Good Question , l thought the same and l am sure others as well.  If he is gettable and he wants to be there ,he would be a breath of fresh air to the playing list picking the brain of a great young assistant coach also teaching his know how. Better than what we have.

I think that Goody is professional enough to work in with  Adem Yze  and for the same cause could become a successful combination. Anything is possible.  I for one is hoping.

Kent may well have been the most inconsistent player the dees have had in the last decade. 1 good game in 5 and the other 4 were crap or injured.

seems to have improved a little OLD

Maybe its not players but coaching

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    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

    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
