I'm not worried about Yze leaving and certainly not leaving us in the lurch halfway through a season that we're 11-1 with the best shot at a premiership in 50+ years. I'm more worried about Colli

Buckley can clearly coach and should probably be a premiership coach already. But he's in an absolute basket case of a club at the moment with upheaval at every level of the club since the exit of Edd

Lyon up for grabs and Clarkson heading in the same direction with Jeff getting increasingly angry with the Hawks performances. Mitchell also ready for the big gig. Could see Clarko at Blues but not Pies. 

A new Coach would want stability at Board level. 

It’s great when these things are happening at other clubs and we have harmony and light with our coaching team.

The notion of a team suddenly becoming more dangerous because their coach quit seems absurd to me. Can anyone give me a tangible reason why they'd suddenly turn around and play well in this scenario?

Can't see Clarko getting an offer, he has coached the Hawks into 2nd last.

And I would be very surprised if Ross Lyons message hasn't passed its use by date....

Sam Mitchell?

He will coach somewhere next year...my guess is the Hawks will lose their nerve and transition Clarkson out & Mitchell in.

Their hand has now also been forced.

Clarkson will be at either Carlton or Collingwood. Lyon will take the other job.

...but if either of them (Carlton or Collingwood) go with Mitchell, an untried coach then interesting times.

Carlton couldn't go with another untried, unproven coach could they?

You have to wonder if Carlton's review and now Buckley stepping down shows these two clubs are panicking about missing out on Ross Lyon.

I just don’t understand why people rate Lyon. Everywhere he’s gone he hasn’t been able to get a premiership (has gone very close tho I’ll give him that) and seems to come with a lot of baggage. 
Can’t see the hype.

They will have to get a name coach both the current board and the challengers will want nothing less. My bet is that the current board already have someone to shore up their position and that has led to this decision. It cant be an untried assistant in the circumstances and they need to make the announcement soon. The alternative is they told Bucks that was their plan and he said well see you later, that would be a misstep on their part. 

As for Monday it may fire the pies up but we just need to be ready to play as if they are another top tier contender.

It reminds me of The Death of Stalin.

I feel sorry for Buckley. He seems like a decent guy and he's a good coach, but the club he's part of is a complete dumpster fire.

Well said.

I agree with this.

Korda needed something to differentiate his board from the Eddie board. This is them cutting the cord from the Eddie days in the eyes of supporters.

Morally, I would agree with that decision if I were a Collingwood supporter.

Politically, the moves they have made are provoking the Cult of Eddie. There are a LOT of Collingwood supporters still pining for his reign.

Don't be surprised if they become what Richmond did after the Cloke, Raines and Wood trades of the 80's. Their supporters took their cues and talking points from Graeme Richmond, just as Collingwood's do with Eddie now. The sway he has over a lot of their hearts and minds is staggering.

I'd be happy to see Mark Neeld return to coaching at Collingwood.  Or Carlton.  I'm not fussy.

Meanwhile, good to see past players playing tribute to Bucks ...

He handled himself so incredibly well in that press conference. Regardless of some of the internal stuff that’s clearly gone on, and continues to go on, at Collingwood Buckley is a very polished media performer. He’s very well suited to a Director of Football role at a club who is developing.

Saw that.

It was poor form by Daisy considering only few weeks ago he was sooking it up about mental health and people bagging him on social media about his weight.

The guy has a brain the size of a pea.

This definitely makes it a "danger" game for the Demons. We need to withstand any onslaught from the Magpies as they will be emotionally charged for this game.

Hopefully our players will be focused and just worry about playing well and aim to do what they need to do and play their roles so that we get the win.

It is important that we don't underestimate a wounded Magpie!

You would think not, but if ever there is a club looking for a cheap trick rather than doing due diligence it is Carlton.....

The answer is unclear.  It's possible to argue either that C'wood will play out of their skins or crumble in a heap. I'd be more interested in what the historical stats are for this situation.

Emotions will be high at the start of the game. Important to get off to a really strong start. 
But if we can come back from 20 points down against a much better team in Brisbane, there is 0 excuse to lose this game. We are a better team and we have a lot more to play for. 
Losing this will come down to our application on game day. Nothing more.

When Balm stepped down as MFC coach, we beat Richmond the following week. We then returned to losing.

When Daniher stepped down as coach, we played out of our skins to just lose to Essendon. We then returned to losing.

Plenty of other examples.

Having said that, I expect to win, but win/lose, the team will go into the bye and then reset.

Seems to be a bit similar to Daniher’s time at Melbourne as well. Coach for 10 years, made finals here and there including a grand final, and departs midway through their last season. Also times where you thought he was gonna get sacked halfway through their tenure but ended up staying as their clubs bounced back into finals.

Other than Neale Daniher in 07, I can't recall another time a coach announced they were leaving mid-year, then had another game.

The notion that teams play better immediately after a coach is fired has been around for a long time, but not sure if there's any definitive proof to back it up.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
