Nice production but it ended too abruptly. I was just getting into the message.

Good on him for being so open.

Respect.

I used to really detest what I considered "corporate speak" from Goody.

This vid  shows that even the automaton has a soul and it's great that he can use his personal experiences to help others. 

I like the post '19 Goody. Adversity made him stronger. Much like the current list I guess.

Goody said with eight minutes left to go in the GF the tears started to flow and he doesn’t cry very often. That makes two of us, Goody! 🤥  Yeah nah, I cried just hearing him say that. 

Thank you for posting, Frankie_d!

An enduring disgrace that Goodwin didn't get the opportunity to speak after the Grand Final. A high point of his and our lives ruined by Basil Z - a complete peanut

Also didn’t allow Embley to announce the Norm Smith medallist either. Basil definitely made the moment all about him.

Yeah, I had the same issue. His evenness is now part of his success. Really is perfect for the modern footballer. They don’t want a rollicking coach - they want a calm mentor with consistent messaging and empathy.

People talk about Hird as a narcissist. He has nothing on Zempilas.

A prototypical media personality-turned-politician.

May the grand final never again be played in a location that is accessed by that complete [censored].

Amen. As it is written; there shall be but one holy day in the west but only one. There will be but one holy day MC’d by a Basil but only one. So shall it be.

I know it is just fanciful thinking…. but wouldn’t it be great if we could somehow have some training sessions conducted with our supporter base to remove the ‘veil of negativity’ that somehow seems to permeate into our culture…. despite what we have achieved last year and how we are currently travelling.  Yeah I know …. I’m dreaming

What a leader Goodwin has become.  Having the guts to talk about his mental health and how he copes with the stress will help countless people.  Showing some vulnerability to the players and coaches makes him approachable and able to really connect with the group

I watched Nathan Jones on the DYL and friends podcast last night and you feel his hurt about the years prior to PJ Roos and Simon Goodwin. They changed our environment and culture to such an extent that our kids are now thriving as footballers and people in a safe environment. You can hear it in the voices of our youngsters like JJ and Tommy Sparrow so confident and knowing their role. No more train wrecks for us under Goodwin and his excellent team. Love Goody and what he has bought to our great club.💕❤️💙

I would heartily recommend the Dyl and Friends interview with Nathan Jones - absolutely fascinating. No doubt that Jonesy's greatest achievement was being the unheralded prop for our football club, whilst the major cultural changes were taking place. It's almost bittersweet irony that he shouldered the burden all the way to the Grand Final and ultimately missed out on what most would consider the greatest prize. On the contrary - the greatest prize will ultimately be the knowledge that he sacrificed money and personal glory and was instead guided by his own moral compass, to help forge possibly the greatest chapter in our club's history.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
