Goody is a courageous man to talk about his issues personal and professional. He dealt with them and came back stronger. Handled himself with class tonight on 360

the demons package on 360 was awesome. Had something In My eye again 🙂

Goodwin will be the next Clarkson. His game sense, high-level view of all aspects of the game, and (obviously the most important bit, still a little bit to come) on-field results all point to a man who will go down as a visionary and "not just any old coach" figure.

So glad we have him.

Cheap gotcha, childish, moronic, supercilious drivel from an outdated, supposedly premium AFL Footy Presentation that amazingly offered nothing new for the start of a Season that should be a standard bearer after the last three years of stop/ start ordinary..

Knowing that this stuff was happening to and around Goodwin in the pre-2020 season makes his adoption of 'This is Me' as the season theme as very poignant. 

The lyrics of the song seem tailored to the challenges facing him at the time and I can see how they would give inspiration to deal with those challenges.

nice reply simon - robbo asking if simon knew who the whistle blower was

And tell me, did Robbo offer an opinion or did he duck the question?  Did Whateley follow up?

All paths lead to one person and he hasn’t denied it. I hope he has to pay for his Presidents Dinner spot on Wednesday if he’s there.

Maybe he should go back to barracking for the Eagles and not darken our door again; well not for a while.  Let the dust settle.  It would be brazen to turn up at the club when it is all still so raw.

He actually asked Robbo twice and said it was him and his paper. He didnt ask it as a joke.

Whately wasnt in shot and Robbo ignored it. I think Goody despises Robbo.

If you want a clown on the show, get a clown. Robbo who is neither a serious reporter or a funnyman wants it both ways.

Seriously Robbo needs to go. The Media rag he works for, for which he is called the “Chief” are nothing more than pure junk

Typical amateur good cop bad cop type attack, verging on harrassment and could be construed as a kick up the bum to the AFL too, in that a team that won the PREMIERSHIP is beyond reproach and a gang of media ruffians..

Is it time to change the thread title to “One guy who got the heave go for his over zealousness and is a potential leaky leakerson considered standing down Goodwin.”

I don’t think “the club” did at all.

Um, is it time to start a new Sack Goodwin thread in the hope of achieving the same outcome in 2022 as we got in 2021?

Of course no one would be silly enough to start a thread like that and propagate it until it turned into an absolute dumpster fire.

Of course not. They would simply ask whether Goodwin was the right... 

I'll stop there for fear of a verbal beat down. Thank goodness that particular Demonland cultural nugget has been permanently locked.

Well, when the President wants to do it - ‘the club’ invariably does that thing. Thankfully, Kate Roffey had other ideas.

The acid should be put on the leaker.

The club knows who it is. As more information came out it narrowed down the culprit. One meeting referred to in the Herald 'claims' had only 4 people in it.

And at the end of the day this was a disgruntled ex-employee who was making an ambit claim for dollars. These claims are generally all sensationalist in order to force an employer to pay more money. It is unproven and not tested in a court room or anywhere else.

Its on a par with the garbage I threw out tonight.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
