If we miss the final 8 next year then ...


picket fence

Recommended Posts

Both the coach and the Pres should step down. However I seriously doubt we will miss the 8, so nothing to worry about.

If we don’t win a final though, Goodwin must be held accountable. I’d also be looking at a change in on-field leadership. We have failed to finish top 4 the past 2 years, a serious underachievement given the quality of players we have at the moment (almost like how it would be a failure if Brisbane don’t win a flag with the players they have atm).

You’ve said this a few times now. When we speak of Top 4 it’s always been about the end of the H & A season. We haven’t failed to finish top 4 the last two seasons. Position after finals is irrelevant.

We have strengthened our forward half not including organic growth in existing kids, we have added run and carry and retained and strengthened our backline. Only bad luck and severe injuries will stop us, 2024 is a Premiership year for the Dees.!!!

I'll as usual reserve my view until Round 6. Last year we performed better in the first half of the season than I anticipated. In the second half we seemed to plateau and then lost all semblance of a forward line in the last few weeks. Can we find that extra gear (loading aside).

Tracc and Oliver plus perhaps Kozzie are the key

If we miss the 8 there will be a reason. If we finish around 6th it could just be bad form, the gameplan and luck.

Interesting to see this kind of political strategy appearing on football forums.

It's kind of like sealioning... maybe could be called 'wolf-crying'.

THERE'S A WOLF!

No, there isn't.

WELL, IF THERE'S NO WOLF, EXPLAIN WHY EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT WOLVES? WOLF COVER UP! WE KNOW THE TRUTH! THERE'S A WOLF!

I'd say the opposite. Ladder position is irrelevant. Finals is the real stuff and when the proper season starts. We have a finals system to determine the winners and placers. Minor premiers are meaningless. We have failed to finish top four two seasons running. We've [censored] the bed and are wasting our premiership window.

If we fail again next year, I expect significant changes to senior coaches and onfield personnel and leaders. Otherwise we become Port Adelaide who keep resigning Hinkley as coach and never achieve any success.

Spin it which ever way you like. All I’m saying is we have finished top 4 the last two seasons.

I’m of the opinion that the real season begins in September. They don’t award the premiership cup to the team that finishes the H&A ladder in first

1. If we miss the 8, then Goody is 80/20 to go. Possible leadership and footy Dept changes. A fair bit of list turnover as well. 

2.If we make the 8 and don't win a final then Internal Footy Dept Review and Goody is 50/50 to go. 

3.If we make top 4 and straight sets, External Footy Dept review and Goody is 60/40 to go,

4.If we make a PF+, then Goody stays. 

Pass mark: Play in a GF.

I think we aren’t on the same page here. We are all of the opinion the real stuff begins in September and I’m well aware of how our last two finals campaigns have us winless. 
Let me ask you this, how do you get the double chance at the end of the H&A?

Who knows what is really going on at the club. There is a real chance we could drop out of the 8 as there is we could go close to winning it. 

I really wonder what happened with the girls side. Relevant to the men at all or not ?????

    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
