Do we get him in as an assistant coach in 2025?

Depends, will it help or hinder a potential pursuit of Harley Reid in two years?

“OMG! He’s done it again!” “How does he know so much?” “Who’s his contact, I wonder…” “Handsome and amazing” “He really is the #tradewhisperer”

Ok ok.. calm down. Not one to blow my own trumpet, peoples.

  • Whispering_Jack changed the title to Adam Simpson departs West Coast

After his weekend presser I'm not surprised. My guess would be Don Pyke is next in line.

open season on meth coke players now, or does this actually make it less likely that they'll leave?

middle aged blokes i'd be keen to have a chat with:

  • tom barrass
  • jake waterman
  • liam ryan
  • jack petruccelle (vic lad)
  • alex witherden  (vic lad)

young'ns:

  • harley reid (vic lad)
  • rueben ginbey
  • campbell chesser
  • jack williams

a lot of their players are wa born-and-bred - given our sheer number of wa lads, they might feel right at home with us, weather aside

Before the meat market begins, I'd just like to pay tribute to Simmo.

10 years coaching in the west with a flag to his name. Like Goodwin, a philosophy based coach who doesn't like to swing the magnets around on gameday but believed in his system. I don't know what the overall feeling was among the fan base but the few WC members I know very well were right behind him until the very end.

He was up for the rebuild and seemed to do the best he could and up until recently it looked they believed in him. Don't know what happened behind the scenes but a good coach has lost his job and that's never nice. All the best Simmo.

Time to start putting some respect on Simon “Oppo coach career-ender” Goodwin 

How many is that now Smokey?

That'd actually be a good question for SirSwamp...

salient point

depends on who was sending texts to whom...

Most of my dodgy messages seem to come from Linkt or Medicare offices. They seem to originate somewhere near Bangalore. So I think WC should start their search there.

Unless he’s headhunted by the AFL for a certain area they have been having trouble getting to grips with? 
I think the kids are pretty well grown up so he should be able to re-locate.
Might have to leave his dozen Hungry Jack’s franchises with a management trust for awhile.

Rich clubs like the Eagles can afford the million dollar soft cap hit.

I think Port would like their time again but I'm not sure they have the money to pay Hinkley out.

Questions could be asked at the end of 2025 if Dimma doesn't get the Suns a finals berth.

Beveridge.... who knows

Quite an unsettling time in coaching land

    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

    PODCAST: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    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.
