QUAIRADING "Going Home"



Recommended Posts

If you haven't watched this mini doco of Kozzie going home don't miss it.

It was amazing to watch Clarrie, Goodie and Shane McAdam enjoy the  moments in Kozzie's country. It is very emotional and gives a great hindsight into our Kozzie's life before football and the influence of family has had. It was also wonderful to see the joy and inclusion that Clarrie had with the community. What a great idea to include Clarrie on the trip. He really connected with everyone. Congratulations to the Club. A great initiative.

It’s heartwarming to see where and how Kozzie was raised by his very close, very loving family, and then to see the beautiful reunion.

Thank you, MFC. ❤️💙

What a very special reminder of what a humble past  Kozzie came from, and what he and his caring extended family and community have achieved, to whom we owe so much thanks.

And great to take Goody, Clarrie and Shane to share the whole experience.

PS - at first glance my MFCSS immediately kicked in and I thought that Kozzie was leaving us 😮

I’m an old and emotional fart when it comes to our Dees.  I shed a few tears!

That is a beautiful story and just another one of those things this club does so well. We seem to do a lot right for a club with a suspect culture. For those critics of Clarry, look at how invested he is in this club and how we look after our own, we don't try to offload them.

It's hard to believe that not that long ago our indigenous brothers could go into town after 6 pm. 

I congratulate the club for putting this together. I am overjoyed to see how happy Kozzie is and Clarry as well.

To the critics and the press who continually look for an angle to bring this club down all I can say is you are wrong. This playing group are as tight as any I have seen and we are a club that looks after its own and a lot of that stems from our coach

A beautiful little doco.

How many of us would love to have the same feeling of family and community that Kozzy has?

Also, a great idea to take Clarry along - somebody at the club knows what they are doing.

Lots of thoughts ran through my head watching that! Isn’t privilege such a tiered thing - Kozzy had a disadvantaged upbringing compared to Oliver or Goodwin, but compared to Nan he might as well have been raised in a palace. It’s so hard to fathom the idea of having to be out of town by 6pm or getting locked up. That was THIS lifetime, not some ancient history. Far out.

Love that Goody, Clarrie and Shano took the time to head there with Kozzy and connect. The bond will run just that bit deeper with every step like that.

Great post. 

Kozzie rightly is so proud.  This video reminds me of the trip Jimmy took to Yuendumu with Jurrah. 

 

As an aside, it is great to see Clarry so happy 😁; I chuckled at the 12 pieces of damper he scoffed down   Goodwin had a bit of a laugh about it ... will probably make him do 100 x 100 sprints ... to work it all off.  😊

Beautiful doco spot on in all ways with our Club showing how we can take care of some things together. 

The bonding of Kossie and his family plus his newborn is spine tingling and tears in the eyes stuff. 

Then to expose Clarry and Shane along with Goody is a masterstroke that will bond those guys even more with our newly emerging playing group.

I believe we have started a rebuild on the run both on and off the field. 

The Demon fans that are dooming and glooming are half empty doubters and thanks to 32,000 last week that atmosphere and noise with all the kids showed how good our start from our slump has been. We can again see the future with the old and new and not to bottom out. 

This doco shows that Clubs are sometimes more than results on the field and I will be interested in what public credit our Club is given for this initiative of soul, spirit and humanity. 

10/10 Dees congratulations.

THIS lifetime means the 1960s and 1970s ?

Goodwin is a lovely person. I still think he is too guarded in his appearances and would love to see him come out more.

You get to see a bit of why the players love him...and why he is so important to this team.

Being a senior coach is about so much more than tactics and team selection.

The single most important aspect of being a senior AFL coach is bringing people together.

You can have 100 assistants who are tactical masterminds, but if the senior coach doesn't have the respect, love and support of his players, the club is cooked.

See West Coast.

I am in agreement, I think his media persona is quite stiff and rehearsed.

The more personal, humans side is obviously very highly regarded internally and it’s good to see that in this light.

Kozzie could not possibly sell himself any better at the moment, he’s a very grounded and mature kid for his age and fame

No one could survive their performances to be fair. But the Club have not been very proactive on trading recruiting or drafting and held onto some flag heroes a bit too long I fear.

Hope they still dither a couple more years they deserve to be bottom.

Probably due to every word and deed being heavily and sometimes venomously (in Goodwin's case) scrutinised by that same media (and others.).

    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

    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.
