From the outside, it seems like he's a tough-love, Sergeant-Major type who keeps his distance from his players. Interesting to see that McCartney was pushed out the door- many of the Bulldogs players couldn't stand him. Some of his end of year reviews turned into shouting matches.Great list. Prime age/games bracket. Awful coach. Goodwin has no idea.
Need a KPF pretty badly, my personal thought is that Tom McDonald’s 2017 is going to be an exception and not a rule. Perhaps Jenkins.
Outside speed as well. Not sure why they weren’t chucking everything at Brad Hill.
It’s all pi**ing in the wind till that moron gets out of the chair, though.
On the field, it's apparent that the old-fashioned 'go in hard, win the ball first and go from there' mantra was in play last year. No point in winning the ball if your skills are abhorrent. And there's no way professional footy players skills are actually that bad; I suspect that they're terrified of making mistakes so they f**k things up.
I agree, a change of coach will work wonders. Bring in someone who can have a laugh and not take things too seriously. This will be Goodwin's last season if he lasts that long. It would be a shame for the Demons to waste these golden years.
