    Post Match Discussion - Elimination Final

    Dunstall sat there on quietly on fox footy post match whilst the Roosy and King talked us up. I thought he was stewing that Dees would be up against his beloved Hawks next week. Then he said that was the toughest MFC outfit he had seen in the 20 years as a footy commentator!

    Yeh it was almost as if the umpires were getting one back for being played with at the Cattery in rnd18! How proud are we of the boys tonight, just sensational! Go Dees!

    Gawny on Game Day (2/9)

    George was at the door at Chasers, Great memories! Crinitis pizza in Carlton is expensive but sensational (Frankie Fingers with gorgonzola!) Otherwise Torino's Special in Heidelberg!

    Changes v Geelong - Elimination Final

    Agree. I saw the Tyson xray post op (this is similar https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/fracture-bones-forearm-orthopedic-surgeon-operated-582434254) Just cant see them risking him yet. Hannan/Viney/Smith gives us more defensive/goals/grunt than JKH/Tyson/Kent Just great to have options & depth at this time of year! Go Dees!

    Injury List - Season 2018

    Tyson has a fracture of the ulna a couple of inches up from the wrist. It has been screwed and plated. Outside chance to be fit for first final. Kent injured his R/H ac joint (opposite side to the one reconstructed last year). The collarbone is slightly displaced. No news re; 1) which of the 3 possibilities below if any (diagram downloaded from Dr Google) or 2) recovery time.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 23

    The AFL chose the MFC elimination final for Friday night football. They chose the brand that plays the most exciting football for their premier AFL audience. Gee things have changed! Go Dees!

    Support Melbourne

    Firstly we are lucky to live in a country we’re we can have an opinion, be safe and have a great life. As far as ‘barracking & supporting’ a sporting team as humans the spectrum will vary from those whom it is their lives 24/7 to those who just provide token support. Unfortunatley in this current world with Social Media some negative posts have a lot more affect on individuals & management within a Club than they ever had before, hence the exploding issues with mental health of players at clubs. IMHO this is what Goodwin was referring to.

    Bartlett: Dees Not Mentally Weak

    This is essentially it. As a 30 year member I understand and feel the frustration but the '60 game or less' year olds need the time to sustain the habits/pressure/physicality 24/7. eg Many complaints of Charlie Spargos' kicking last Sunday, but the demands of a long season on very young legs has this as a result.
  10. Hogan 2018 season over with foot/ankle injury sustained during game on Sunday.(Navicular bone) Maybe announced this arvo To some posters, got to be careful what you wish for……

    Tom McDonald sent for Scans (24/5)

    Hey Guzzie, Do Hobart Demon supporters hang out at any pubs to watch the MFC games? I am in Hobart Saturday night with work and wondered where I could go? As a back up I will have the trusty bottle of red in my bag so I have company as I scream at the TV in my hotel room! PS - Sorry to alarm demonlanders with the heading of the post but was not sure how to contact a member directly!

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    Compared to Queens birthday we were not disgraced yesterday. It took the first 3 games to get a cohesive style going. It just so happened to that we lost Lever just as we came up against top 8 teams. Once Lever went down so did our top 4 chances. He is a massive out. That’s why we gave so much away to get him. We don’t have the player to cover for him. Hence I doubt we can kick those big scores now because we will leek goals out back. That is the reality. Look at West Coast without their 2 key forwards. As supporters we need to deal with it. As the coaches have opportunities to learn other ways to win. Keep learning more opportunities. The positive is that we can adapt & practise new setups that we can use mid game later on The TMac revelation occurred through adversity. Go Dees! PS IMHGHFO - (In My Humble Glass Half Full Opinion)

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    The wrist slashing is amazing and unfortunately predictable on Demonlogy. Lost Lever = massive team balance issues. Our hardness yesterday especially the first Qtr I have not seen in a MFC team for long time if not ever. Viney getting back to his best, Melksham working through being tagged, Tyson in didn’t work so let’s now try Garlett in? Other opportunities? Port will not have so many things fall there way at the MCG.
