    3 Dees in 22Under22

    What's obvious from this year's team is how long it takes to develop as a ruckman. Most of those picked are comfortably in their sides best 22. Not to be disrespectful to Darcy, but he'd struggle to get a regular game at most teams. Looks like Trac has to come off the bench to relieve in the ruck as well.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 23

    Good to see the Rev in the crowd flanked by two Demonland favs in Godders and Wardy. Well done Neale, well done Dees!

    Support Melbourne

    Well said. I first started following footy and the Dees in 81 a particularly poor year in our history. Since then I’ve been exposed to a lot of the ups and downs of this club. I work in a particularly stressful and complex environment with often unrealistic time frames and stakeholder expectations. For that reason alone I am glad that I can walk around with a grin on my face no matter how crappy work gets because for the first time in 12 years the team that I love and I have grieved and been through hell with is playing finals. I had one particular person try to bring me down with his particularly inane perspective - like the better man I ignored him and walked away. Winners are Grinners after all and this is the first time in over a decade that I can look forward to September!

    Jesse Hogan - trade?

    If the club had any inkling that Jesse wanted to go home at the end of his current contract it should do this deal, particularly if the player is Langdon.

    The Dan Hanneberry Thread

    Melbourne, might still be able to profit. With Tom Lynch leaving the Suns and if May gets traded to the Swans for presumably what the Saints give them for Hanners, then the Suns are likely to have three picks inside the top 6. They need to import experience and plenty of it to help with another slew of high draft picks and a young list. So desperate were they last year they parted with Pick 3 for Lachie Weller. We should look to get back into the top end of the draft.

    Viney MUST be sole captain 2019

    Not yet anyway. You constantly see him talking to team mates on the bench though.

    Viney MUST be sole captain 2019

    I love Jack, but apparently he needs to change his running style or he will never get on the park for any length of time.
  8. Out: Hunt, Garlett, Pedersen. In: Melksham, Hibberd, Hannan. Jones to go to HBF.

    POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 21

    I actually think we might beat West Coast over there. The ground dimensions suit us. We can't defend space and are absolutely shizen on the MCG. I have no faith in Garlett or ANB in the furnace of pressure football.

    Melbourne and Matthews

    Reactionary or Radicals are usually intolerant of other's views. Whether Left or Right.

    Melbourne and Matthews

    I was listening to it on the radio in 83 I believe and the first time in a long time we beat them there. Matthews was playing at Full Forward and couldn't get a kick. The radio said he'd plastered his nose across his face (but he may have also broken his jaw). Dog act.

    Melbourne and Matthews

    I heard the story from a long time Demon fan (not sure if he was at the game though) The way he told McMullin never played again after Matthews broke his jaw, but clearly he did. It wasn't unusual for Matthews, but it would have been worth the price of admission to see Big Carl chase him round the ground. To add innuendo to further tarnish his notorious reputation, I've heard Matthews departure from Collingwood wasn't all that amicable either, especially from a particular player's perspective. Matthews, Thompson, Carey, Buddy.... good players, but 'friends' like them you can do without.

    Round 21 Non MFC Games

    Don't forget they need to talk up the Bummers because they'll be stinking it up next Friday night and the following one. FWIW it's blowing a gale in Canberra ATM and it may or may not die down for the game tonight. Doubt it will be a high scoring affair which brings Adelaide back into it.

    Training - Thursday 9th August, 2018

    Richmond resting Nankervis this weekend, we don't have that luxury. I suspect that if they're worried about Max, then it would actually be Weideman that would come in to ruck. We have one forced change with Smith out, but it will be interesting to see if they make another one. I wouldn't be surprised if Hunt comes in for Smith and maybe Cam for Bernie who looks off the pace.
