Yze interview with Tim Watson on 7news this week (maybe even as early as tomorrow night).

Yes on Ch7 news tonight, they said it's on tomorrow (Monday)

Then there is an interview with Dimma on Tuesday

Looks like a lot of players are knocking on the door for a game.
Will be interesting to see who is in the team for our first game

After years of knock backs, Adem Yze is just weeks away from fulfilling his AFL coaching dream. Yze says he's not daunted following in Damian Hardwick’s footsteps and he's already making his mark at Punt Road. @timwatson32 #7AFL #7NEWS

You were expecting a deep dive from a segment on the news and Tim Watson? Was always going to be a shallow puff piece. :shh

I heard on Sen that he’s starting to remove images of the  “dynasty “ era around the club .

2017 was 7 years ago - makes sense.

Yep, in the GR room (main meeting room) there was a photo of the 2017 premiership team celebrating on one wall. I'll be honest I'm not 100% sure what was on the other wall. But Per last night's not much story Yze had it removed. Also, looked like the Francis Boruke award winners honour board has been moved too.

‘Does this need to be in here?’: Tigers coach reveals ‘disrespect’ fears after bold premiership move

News.com.au
February 20th, 2024


Tigers coach Adem Yze has been praised over his bold move to pull down shrines to the club’s premiership dynasty since taking over at Richmond.

The rookie senior coach heads into the 2024 AFL season immediately under pressure to turn the Tigers around after the club slumped to 13th on the AFL ladder last year.

With Damien Hardwick, Trent Cotchin and Jack Riewoldt all moving on, Yze has been tasked with beginning a new era at the club following its premierships in 2017, 2019 and 2020.

Yze was given the job after the recruitment process reportedly became a two-horse race between him and interim coach Andrew McQualter, following Hardwick’s move to the Gold Coast Suns.

The former Melbourne senior assistant coach has now revealed he has not held back in his decision to push the club forward.

One of the first moves he made was to take down some references to the club’s recent glory years, including one picture of the club’s drought-breaking 2017 premiership.

“I had the luxury of walking in and recognising different photos that are up that might have been (on the wall) for too long and things like that,” he told 7News on Monday night.

“It’s just like we need some clear air here.”

He said he received the support of the playing group’s senior figures before his decision to erase some of the memorabilia around the club’s Punt Round headquarters.

“Why is that in this room? That was six years ago,” he said of the 2017 photo.

“I felt like I was disrespecting people by saying, ‘Does this need to be in here? Can we can we move it? Can we get some blank walls?’ But like I said, the leaders bought into that.

“We had a discussion around it and it was time that that needed to be shifted and almost (covered up) like a fresh coat of paint.”

Demons legend Garry Lyon on Tuesday morning praised Yze for making the difficult call.

“I really like hearing that,” Lyon told SEN Breakfast.

“That was a long time ago. We’re never going to disrespect them. They’re our heroes. They’ll be hall of fame members for ever and a day. But lets put them over there with all the things we’ve achieved in the past. Lets leave room for something we can achieve in the future. I love that.”

Yze, who played 271 games for the Demons and was an All-Australian in 2002, started his coaching journey at Hawthorn in 2012, winning three grand finals in his first four seasons at the club.

He moved to Melbourne in 2020, before the Demons broke their 57-year premiership drought in 2021.

Yze said when he was announced as the club’s new coach in September that he is immediately pushing his players to make the top four in 2024.

“It‘s been three years since we’ve won a final, so there has to be a subtle change and hopefully I can bring that change,” he said.

“But the foundations of this footy club and the footy team are really strong. And I’m hoping to just bring my knowledge and experience of what I’ve learned … and bring my slant on the way that we should play so hopefully we can bounce back really quickly.

“I get huge upside on what other teams have done. GWS have gone from the bottom half of the ladder to a prelim … that’s what we are going to strive to do.

“I want the players walking into the footy club thinking they can make the top four next year. I can’t wait to get started.”

I have a good feeling about Yze. Not saying we will be world beaters but I think we will be hard to play against. A fresh voice is much better than having someone who’s been around for ages ( mcqualter )

“EXCELLENT MOVE”: WHY AFL GREATS BACK YZE’S DECISION TO HIDE RICHMOND’S PREMIERSHIP ERA

By Andrew Slevison
SEN
21 Feb 2024


SEN Breakfast’s Garry Lyon is a fan of what Yze is attempting to do by clearing the slate.

He believes it is a step in the right direction so early in Yze’s senior coaching career.

“I really like hearing that,” the Melbourne champion said.

“That was a long time ago. We’re never going to disrespect them. They’re our heroes. They’ll be Hall of Fame members forever and a day.

“But let us put them over there with all the things we’ve achieved in the past. Let’s leave room for something we can achieve in the future.

“I love that.”

Brownlow Medallist Gerard Healy had a similar view, referencing the flag-winning Hawthorn and Geelong teams of the very near past that future sides would attempt to emulate.

“I thought that was fantastic,” Healy said on SEN’s Sportsday.

“They are all about building new history. You can’t live in the glory of what’s gone, even though it’s still fresh and it’s not far away (that it happened).

“With a new coach it is time to turn the page and to worry about the future. There’s plenty of time to celebrate the greatness of the past, there’ll be a 10-year anniversary in a few years.

“For this group, and particularly the guys who didn’t play in those (premierships), is they don’t want to be talking about the greatness.

“That overhung Hawthorn for a long period of time, people trying to emulate the deeds of the great Hawthorn sides.

“I’m sure that it probably was reminded of the (Geelong) group under Chris Scott for a period of time. They won one and then they won another 10 or 11 years later, which was one of the great Grand Final victories.

“It’s a great move by Yze.”

Kane Cornes, who recently attended Port Adelaide’s 20-year premiership celebrations, agrees with Healy.

He described it as a bold and courageous decision which highlights Yze’s attitude towards creating his own history at the club.

“That’s what I thought as well,” he said.

“It looked bad because they had the pictures of it. They had the Channel 7 cameras in the lecture theatre and Chris Newman was up addressing the group.

“Adam Yze, he spoke on a whole heap of things, but that was the thing that struck me as well. About how initially when you’re a new coach, you feel like you’ve got to come in and do everything.

“Now that may be confronting for a couple of those premiership players that have been in the room and you go, ‘oh, hang on, what’s this guy doing coming in and getting rid of all that history?’

“But it’s not about history. History can happen in 5-10 years.

“I just caught up with the 20-year Port Adelaide players on Friday morning and it’s just as good. You don’t need those photos for the current group.

“In fact, I think it’s a little bit daunting when you are comparing the current group to that of the Richmond dynasty of the past.

“I thought it was an excellent move and a bold one and one that would have taken a little bit of courage for a new coach to come in and make.

“Tigers fans, your coach is impressive and that’s what you get, the insights, when your coach speaks.”
