Mick Malthouse "Demons Culture"



Recommended Posts

Agreed. He loves to take pot shots. I think it's naive to think everything is running beautifully and aspects of our culture don't need work but I think you could say the same for every club. 

A run of bad form and it's stacks on Melbourne again.

The way to get rid of this crud is to start  winning. Let's try doing that. 
 

I have to agree with one thing: it would be nice to hear from Kate - even if it is just platitudes.

This is the same Mick Malthouse that recommended Neeld to Lyon when we were looking for a coach. The same Mick Mathouse that destroyed Carltons list and culture when he coached there. I just dont think he's credible enough to take seriously these days.

If she will not say “motherhood” (pardon) statements. Why can’t we get an AI not to do it for us.   Won’t make a bit of difference to how the supporters feel or what happens.   But good to share the pain.

Yeah the same Mick Malthouse that is also a 3x Premiership Coach, 1x AFLCA of the year, 2x All Australian coach and a premiership player himself.

So easy to spot the cons that ALL coaches carry with them huh..

Coached the most games in the history of the AFL (718). I’d say that gives him some credibility.

Article from the West. Thoughts? Another beat up or kernels of truth? Link below

Read Ch7 Interview with brody grundy about his MFC experienece and our culture. 

Dropped online today .  Couldn't be more different, in a posiitve way, than the media white noise from those on the outside - as opposed by someone from the inside with no agenda to push, like clicks.

Swans ( incl them having JJ) are now my second team for this season.

Except he's not on the inside, so in this case is just another media speculator.  He should know better.  His track record of coaching and playing is excellent, but know your limitations Mick

He doesn’t work for the club therefore cannot have an opinion based on his observations with the experience of 50 years at the top level? 

Conversely the only opinion that can therefore be taken seriously is those from within the club? That are inherently subjective and driven by vested interest?

Strange take. I’d say Malthouse is more learned than the average observer. His opinions may not be infallible but I can’t understand how they’re just dismissed like he’s some nuffy.

I couldn’t spot anything that hasn’t been said already. I guess he’s got some cachet in the W.A. market? Probably even more after his destruction of the baggers.

As far as culture goes, it can be helped along greatly by some players who hold things together. I would have Gus and Grundy in that group. It still disappoints me that we could not make it work with both rucks on the field. Having Lever missing for a few weeks has not helped matters either.

Can never understand why people get their knickers in a knot when outside people the club comment on Melbourne after all that's what this forum does.

Yes, and no one gets upset on here when a poster comments on the state of the club…

While I don't disagree with most of his comments there is a hidden agenda at play here.

For his own selfish reasons, he's written this whole article to turn the blow torch up on Gary Pert, the man who along with Eddie McGuire transitioned him (sacked) from the top coaching job at Collingwood.

Im hardly a Pert fan but this is brain dead stupid:

“When Demons’ CEO, Gary Pert declared on radio in October last year that: “Our culture at the club … is the best I’ve seen in 40 years”, that one statement opened the club up to immense scrutiny and a whole host of critics waiting for the club’s downfall.
It, in effect, loaded up the club with pressure it couldn’t handle.”

Our downfall has mostly been poor list management, perhaps some fitness but also a new game plan and natural playing group turnover and fatigue. It’s hard to be up for more than 3 years. It’s hard to reinvent a side to play a new way.

Has anyone written about Richmond’s culture for their collapse in 2022 and this year?

Our focus should be addressing any cultural issues for sure, but apart from that we need to keep stressing the culture is overwhelmingly good. Gawn, Viney, Tracc, ANB, Lever, Salem, Langdon, Chandler and so many more make it the best playing group culture we’ve had in decades. And I’d include the coaches in that too. Hard workers with close bonds to the players.

The challenge is to fix what needs to be fixed - which might involve a few changes for cultural reasons - but overwhelmingly to ignore whatever point Mick is actually trying to make and stay the course.

The writing is on the wall for all to see. We have lost our win at all costs attitude. Lots of players are playing at 90% level does not win AFL games in 2024. Like 99% on here I have no idea what is going on inside the club all I know is we look like we playing without passion. Why?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    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

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
