The strike record of coaches second time around is not good. The only coaches to have won Premierships the second time (or more) around in the 21st century are Leigh Matthews at Brisbane (who had already coached to a Premiership at his first gig) and Mick Malthouse.

Might need to change the title of this thread to Welcome to Demonland - Carlton Schadenfreude.

What are they doing? Seriously laughable. A sham process to get a coach who is now over the sham and know they are left with another untried? Or a Scott?

It really is great but wow.

True, But I reckon it’s due to blokes not been given a chance. If Hardwick or Clarko or bomber were sacked prior to their first flag, they would not have been hired elsewhere going on past history.

And if you're not? What board is going to entrust their precious list, supporter goodwill, sponsor goodwill, etc, not to mention a minimum 2 years of everyone's life, to a coach who failed last time around? On the off chance that maybe this time he'll come good.

A board would look at that as setting themselves up to fail. It's resignation time if Mr Failed Coach (Maybe Not) turns out to be Mr Failed Coach (Actually Yes).

Carlton board under pressure to make this look like a proper process and are now doing a actual interviews. Ross was semi promised the job/thought he had the job and doesn’t want to risk not getting the job and has pulled the pin. 

What do others think?

My point is any coach would be better the next time, for instance Voss who has been with Port and done very well.

It is a bigger risk taking a punt on an untried coach, eg Shaw, Teague in recent years

That’s how I have read it. Surely a process to a split board not so keen on Lyon will just be a humiliation for him.

My question is if not Carlton - who would take Lyon given his perceived baggage from the alleged issue with the female staff member from Freo??

GC or bust.

I still can't get over the fact that Carlton sacked Teague after 50 games (including a half-season as caretaker, a 17-game messed up season, and this year which he spent half-sacked from about round 4).

He brought Carlton 21 wins in 50 games after the Blues' previous 40 games included just 4 wins.

That's notably better than Paul Roos managed at Melbourne (21 wins from 60 games).

One question remains - was it Teague or others who pursued the strategy of bringing in a multitude of speedy, high profile and high cost rebounding types without defensive mettle? Because if he can wash his hands of that major error then his record is pretty good for coaching a dysfunctional club that can display hubris even while winning the wooden spoon.

It does also make me reflect on the priceless quality of the 'enthusiastic humility' which seems to be driving value at Melbourne now. We must support that attitude above any other single factor.

All very bizarre - new President ringing around to get a coach. On Footy Classified last night Caro questioning Ross Lyon, who looked as though he’d been sold a  pup by Sayers. He just about choked when Caro asked him “how are your powerpoints?” I don’t think he thought that was the deal he made with Sayers. Gerard on 360 tonight pondered that Sayers hadn’t brought his board along with him, and has had to suck up a committee process to recruit a new coach, with a couple on the committee not friendly to Lyon, who then knew his goose was cooked and threw in the towel. Sayers may be the shortest tenure president in Carlton history!

My guess is Ross wanted the job, minimal questions asked. But a proper process (questionable if it would be at Carlton) would dig up the shady stuff when he left Freo. Leaving him no coaching job and jeopardising his cushy media gig.

1000% on the money. 
If you trust in your ability to coach and you have nothing to hide, why run away from a selection process? 
He said they have his resume already as they’ve seen him coach. Yes they’ve seen you coach 0 flags.

It’s just too suss. Saying on Footy Classified he’s happy and even wants to go through a process was just lip service, keeping up his good guy public persona. 
Suddenly pulls out when Carlton hold him to one?

Weasels gunna weasel.

Funnily enough, I don’t think Teague was a bad coach. He was certainly let down by his players against Port Adelaide in a performance that was their 186 and a few weeks earlier when they lost to North Melbourne when a win would have put them in the top 8.

They have a list which IMO is on par with Essendon and Fremantle and is much better than Collingwood. It wouldn’t surprise if they settle down under their new coach (whoever he might turn out to be) and even made the finals next year.

My guess is that it's not the selection process that's troubling Lyon. I presume he's concerned about the reason for the shift in thinking which suggests there are people on the Board who don't want him. If I were Lyon, I wouldn't want to coach any club that didn't have unanimous Board support for my appointment. I think he's been wise to avoid a fractured club.

    DEMONS TO PACK A PUNCH FOR PRIDE by Meggs

    It’s AFLW Pride Week this round.  A celebration of people from all walks of life coming together, being respected, loved and accepted.  Since inception, the AFLW has been a benchmark when it comes to inclusivity and a safe workplace.  This legacy was a gift from the games’ founders of which Melbourne FC was proudly one.  Former Dee, T-Rex Cunningham, has designed this week’s Demons Pride guernsey, in recognition and support of the LGBTIQA+ community.  Tegan’s jumper design highlights the red and

    2 UP FOR THE RED & THE BLUE by Dees in October

    Once again, the Demons took the show on the road, this time for their first game at Punt Road Oval. A flurry of outs due to Covid protocols saw five forced changes, and the match shaped up as a test of depth, with a train-on player being the second emergency. Of course, many of the returning players themselves were only left out of Round 1 due to Covid protocols, such is the merry-go-round on which we all find ourselves. The Tigers faced similar issues, including a crucial defensive pillar in D’

    THE NEW IMMORTALS by Whispering Jack

    The moment Bayley Fritsch slotted through his fifth goal after accepting a pass from Charlie Spargo early in the final quarter of the Grand Final, the result was a given. The Demons were six goals in front and the Bulldogs were spent; the drought was over. The game itself managed to roll on with goals coming seemingly on endless rotation and when it was stopped by the final siren (the mercy rule doesn’t apply in the AFL), the scoreboard had Melbourne in front by 74 points.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan.

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th
