Could not happen to a nicer bunch of flogs, can only hope this derails them for another 5 years.

Really hoping Clarko stays with the Roos option.

Truck doesn't come across as the brightest bulb in the chandelier - can't see him surviving. Yze must get one of Norf,  GWS or Essendrug. I think we will be without him next year unfortunately.

He seems like a nice enough bloke, so I'm sorry for him. Must be terribly stressful.

Gee Essendon don't have much patience. First they get rid of Hird then sack Worsfold and now Rutten. How about giving a coach some time to build a list. 

Dodoro has been there since Sheedy. It’s his list that has been built. It has massive holes, but they should be on the fringes of the 6 with that midfield and backline.

Now could be a good time to produce some Paperwork from 2012 Essendrug, clear the decks…..

Still the same cheating organization in my view…

wallow in mediocrity you bastards

You seem to have forgotten that Stephen Dank has promised to tell his story and clear everyone of any wrongdoing. Any day now...

Forget the cash strapped Roos.
Clarko will follow the money and go to Essendon.

With the soft cap, how can Essendon have more money to offer than North? Surely if Clarkson takes more money himself from Essendon there would be less available for all other football requirements, including assistant coaches.

It all seems very much like Melbourne after the 186 game. Headless chooks not knowing who to sack and the order in which to sack them.

Dodoro is a massive problem but don't agree they should be around the mark for finals - their list is shocking.

I think Dodoro has been reasonable at picking new talent. However, he doesn't seem to know how to manage the trade and list management components of the job. My suspicion is that Josh Mahoney and Dodoro may have a testy relationship which will see one of them leave as part of this upheaval.

Agree to disagree. I am not going to in-depth analysis of that list as that is what unleashes unholy spirits. I just like Laverde and Redman in the backline with their midfield being as talented as StK’s. 

And I am of the opinion that unless you are Melbourne 2013 or NM currently; you are a good coach away (or a committed team) from 8th.

he got them into the 8 last year, a definite set back this year but he may still be the right coach. After 2 years i think they are better off putting better assistant coaches around him to see how he goes. otherwise you might be throwing away 2 years of investment.

I'd be backing dodoro to survive that standoff. Bloke must be an expert politician behind the scenes or some photos or perhaps both.

Sounds like they wanted to have a go at Clarko and if he is already committed, then they are probably keeping Rutten.

How bad are things going if they couldn’t keep it in house until getting confirmation from Clarko.

Its a circus.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
