Chook is back!

Hope this is our Neil Balme back to Richmond moment.

Any news on amyone another appointments?

I know im clutching at straws but the leppa rumour of joining the dees would be great as well. Hes really highly rated at tigerland.

I know tigers supporters that rave about him. Kind of like us and Yze.

Yeah I've heard the same things. Very highly rated and obviously made a huge impact when he returned there. That would be something.

Goody is going to get to hand pick his coaching panel, because this is make or break for his coaching career. 

Who selected his current coaching panel?  And who decided to let his experienced coaching support go last year and hire Richardson, if he didn't?

Based on the last 4 years, I have little confidence in his judgement of what makes a successful coaching panel.

No, i totally agree, so many of these things come back on Goody and if the only reason he hasn't been sacked is his contractual situation, that's a shame. 

I think missing finals this year with a clean bill of health demonstrates very clearly he's not the right guy, and it's time to get someone who can get the best out of this group. 

I look at the Saints, who in my opinion have a less talented list than us, but they've been consistently good all year, and made finals and now beaten a good side in a final

I always rated Brett Ratten right from when he had a great effect on our midfield waaaaay back in the day. Possibly even under Daniher!  He has also clearly done great work getting St Kilda organised and focused and competitive, making the most of a list with few stars but I'd argue reasonably even quality with a short 'tail'.

BUT

Before starting at St Kilda he had a six year term as a senior coach, and for all that he clearly was a good coach it still took him five years to win his first final.  His winning percentage over those six years was coincidentally almost exactly that of Goodwin's so far at Melbourne.

So I would argue it is perfectly reasonable for Goodwin to have 2021 to prove he has learnt more about this coaching caper.  I'd also say that based on our (and Simon's) known/apparent deficiencies, Adem Yze would be a sublimely well-matched assistant/sparring partner for Goodwin.

Anyone know what position he’s going into or likely to go into? 

He's well known for his match day tactics and played a huge role in Hawthorns ball movement during their flag years so i suspect it'll be something similar to the role Craig Jennings used to hold.

Cheers, makes sense. Exactly what we need.

Is there a consensus here that Hawthorn will release him from contract?

Assume a post-Covid soft cap environment may make FD contracts a little more flexible, particularly if a forced 2020 pay cut was imposed

But still, assistant contracts have been a stumbling block before IIRC

Didn’t someone mention that his contract with Hawthorn prevented him from leaving unless it was a higher position (ie: coach). 

Perhaps the post-COVID rules will enable a parallel move.

I’d play him one out in the square as a small/medium sized forward. 

I’m not against it. Surely we have a black glove and a long sleeve guernsey with the sleeves rolled up lying around?

Generally assistant contracts seem to have a clause that lets the coach leave no questions asked for a direct promotion, but unless that's to a senior coaching roles it's a bit murky. 

I suspect given where Hawthorn is at they're not going to try and hold him this year, i think they probably thought they'd go a bit better this year

As always, I find myself in furious agreement with you once more. Well said.

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. 

Roos was pretty glam in terms of salary ...

He was an average player with occasional highlights. He didn’t really care if we got into the finals. It was all about his highlight reel. His IQ must be about 20. Why would we want a such a person????

The big question is...why have I taken so long to put you on ignore?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
