    Its amazing how stats give no indication of a game at times. If I had been told before the game that we would win only one stat, (hit outs) I would be expecting a heavy loss rather than a big win. They do lie at times. Keep it going Demons!!!!!

    Changes v Fremantle

    Hardly weak against Port when the going got tough. Old Melbourne problem, against lower teams think it is a gimmee. Afraid Weids aint no Murray Weidemann. I would drop Petty and Weids and bring in Frost and Jeffy.

    Trengove to Debut for Port

    Very happy for Jack. I sincerely hope he can capture some of the form he displayed in his early Melbourne days All the very best mate.

    Vale Geoff Case

    Steady as a rock on the half back flank. Mr Relliability. Came to Melbourne via the thirds with Ron Barassi, and Bluey Adams. Donny Williams too I think. Bob Johnson as well? RIP Geoff.

    Vale Ken Albiston

    Remember Kenny very well. He came across from Richmond and could kick with either foot. Something not too prevalent these days. He was a rover and forward. Glad he had a good innings. RIP Ken.

    Four Field Umpires

    Great thoughts tiers. Have inter changing of umpires to allow them a breather. Two officiating at a time would work.

    Four Field Umpires

    Couldn't agree more. I can never understand the need for 3 Field umpires let alone 4! Surely two could handle the speed of today's game. Virtually reducing the field by half. Don't tell me today's game is Twice as fast when one umpire was operating. The third only causes confusion.

    Top Red Headed Demons

    I'm happy with that idea. Maybe, the fact they pulled on a Melbourne Jumper makes them top players.

    Top Red Headed Demons

    I never saw Ivor Warne Smith , Bluey Truscott but their names are among the legends of our club.

    Top Red Headed Demons

    I can't name many but they were all good players( One certainly is today) Anyone care to increase this so far small list? There must be many more I have forgotten. Frank (Bluey) Adams Steve O'Dwyer Peter Walsh Clayton Oliver Matthew Bate Stuart Spencer

    Jordan Lewis is absolutely cooked, never pick him again

    Stupid, childish comment DeeSpencer. Maybe you should get out there and bolster our defence. Fair dinkum mate, you sure have Lewis on your hate list. Talk about blaming one guy for our disappointing loss.

    My 3 word player analysis V Collingwood

    According to your comments Joeboy, McDonald, Fritch and Oliver played on their own against Collingwood. 3 versus 22 , a commendable effort to get within 7 goals.You do tend to put players down whenever we lose don't you? It's called a knee jerk reaction.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    OK, we had a stinker. Everything went against us particularly the bounce of the ball which seemed to be projected by Shane Warne many times when we went for it. Richmond lost to Weagles by eight goals. Does that mean they can't win the flag again? Don't think so. We had a downer but after 6 brilliant wins in a row we were due for one. Colingwood, on the other hand, could not have played any better. Just think folks if Maxy hadn't missed that sitter against Geelong we would be clear second right now. Living in Perth and with no Foxtel I have only seen Melbourne live three times this year against Richmond, Hawthorn and Collingwood. Oh dear, I certainly haven't seen the Demons at their brilliant best have I?. Maybe I am a jinx. Not sure if I should watch the Port Adelaide game after the bye.
