Part of the issue is Oliver bombs and lacks creativity and we become predictable ... when he was out this didn't happen as much

A habit that so many one eyed supporters miss in their gushing over him. 

It's the kind of habit that just kills us and just completely undoes all of that mesmerising contest work. 

Part of this habit is actually technique. If you watch him kick whilst on the run under little pressure, he kicks the ball across his body instead of hips facing leading player. This often results in a shallow and high trajectory kick that is almost always advantageous to defenders. It's really really bad and nobody talks about it.

How about we trade him then Jimmy? We can't have someone who continuously "kills us". I'm sure we could con another team into taking such a defective player.

The most frustrating thing about this is he has shown in the past that when he chooses to he is an excellent kick of low trajectory passes to leading players. Hope springs eternal.

If Yze is successful, what is everyone’s thoughts on Stuart Dew replacing him as the midfield line coach?

Don't know why no one responded. He was incredibly highly regarded at the Swans. Back when I was coaching juniors I attended a coaches session put on by the Swans and the stuff he did was transformative. They credited him with developing a whole philosophy they had adopted and then he developed training exercises to execute it. It was very simple, clear and easy enough to teach to juniors.

I will say though that I love the idea of Ratten as midfield coach although he seems to have made it clear he is stepping away from footy for a while. I thought the best our midfield ever operated was when he was the midfield coach, even though that was quite a few years ago now.

I get that you’ve got to grasp opportunities when they present but I reckon Ooze would be smarter to bide his time a bit longer and opt out of the Richmond job. Their prospects over the next 3-5 years are the least enticing of all sides outside the current top eight imo, but they’re yet to fully face that reality. Like Ross Lyon when he ditched the Saints after their golden run in the 2000’s and Clarko when he left the Hawks, Richmond have overplayed their hand and have a list set to nosedive. The next Tigers coach will come under a heap of pressure with 24 months and will likely just ‘fill the seat’ until they hit full on bottom out phase. 
 

Keep your powder dry Ooze. Something better will come along.

Senior AFL coaching opportunities are very rare. He has applied and if he gets offered the job will rightly go to the tigers who are well managed, resourced and back their staff in. The current list isn't great but that's about making sure expectations are aligned

Yze has been great for us and last year I was fearful of him leaving. This year I feel we almost need the change...and thats not putting any blame on him either. It just feels like we cant just go around again after 2 years of straight set exits. Fresh voices and ideas needed.

Hope he gets it.

For both our sake and his.

We're at a point where we need an injection of new coaches with ideas that will challenge Goody's and breathe some new life and motivation into the group.

If we hit next year like we have the last two, we may as well give it away.

It's clear that our 'system' will only take us so far. Our 21' finals run was pure momentum but that entire home and away season was full of the same issues that we still see in this side today.

If Adam gets the Tigers gig i would replace him with Trent Cotchin and Daisy Pearce make them responsible for Midfield and onballers  get Stewart Dew as Forward Coach make  Mark Stinnear our Assistant coach i am very impressed with him he has an amazing ability to read the game unlike Goodwin he listens to others .

Finally lure Phil Davis for backline all of these replace all other Coaches except Williams

think mick is pretty happy as a senior coach of a premiership winning, currently undefeated aflw side

Agreed, Mick has a long commitment to our AFLW team, from day one.  He lives in the country but loves our AFLW team so much that he regularly commutes 2 or so hours each way.  Since our whole AFLW has remained intact, I doubt he'd suddenly go to our AFLM team (even though his expertise would be very welcome).

I get why people are saying this but it would be a disservice to our women!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
