Where?

Huge if true? He was very well loved by the players at Richmond. 

Can he bring Tom Lynch and Shai Bolton.

Heard earlier today but wasn’t sure.

Channel 7 news confirmed it tonight broadcasting from Richmond Best and Fairest.

To be fair, he didn't have much to work with. Houston had a good year but the rest of the backline, including the overrated Allir Allir are strugglers. Forward line lacks quality personnel as well. Bit like our supporters blaming Stafford for our forward woes when we can't get our forwards on the park. And when we do, the mids sit it on the forwards heads.

That's not true Stafford has had 2 years to solve our forward issues no injuries and some. But no result

What’s with everyone’s hard-on for Stafford to get it in the neck?

I think there is a three pronged improvement for us next year; better forward talent, better ball movement, and better forward movement and structure. 

The first one is trade period, the second one I hope is an FD as a collective mindset shift with hopefully mcQualter driving that, and the third is a forwards coach with a system and structure and discipline of movement and patterns. 

I haven’t seen anything very impressive when I have been at games the last few years. Aside from Fritsch and Brown here and there, there is not much forward craft and structure on display.

I see Stafford as a ruck/development coach who became an effective kicking coach, but has since been thrust into a position that may be above his station (I suspect) as a cut price option for effective soft-cap management. Maybe it’d be problematic to shift him back to purely ruck coach, but I expected with the seasonal rotation of coaching duties this was likely to happen.

Of which the forwards coach can influence maybe only one...

On Channel 7, Adem Yze said his focus for Richmond over the off-season would be kicking skills. I bet they hope he has more success with that for them than he had for us.

It’s become increasingly clear that the MFC acknowledges our kicking skills have cost us over the past few seasons and in particular, 2023.

With potential for significant change (Clarry out or a supercharged version) in 2024, there’s a hint of optimism in me. Just wish it didn’t take this long for the poor skills to be in focus.

I’d love a mini reset for ‘24, if we did lose Clarry and landed Reid + one or two of the other top enders, we’d suddenly have more scope to expand our game by finishing off the hard yakka.

The way we play the game seems to be emblematic of everything the club does,  we’ve taken the difficult path for as long as I can remember.

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne
