    Injury List - Season 2018

    http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2018-08-21/hibberd-set-to-play-duo-to-face-tests Good news with Hibberd to play vs GWS, and Joel Smith ahead of schedule undergoing a fitness test this week . Thats great news after it looked like he might be done for the season when he got hurt. And on top of that, Bernie is still a chance to return if we advance past week 1 of finals. The more players available in September the better.

    Sam Weideman

    Does he remind anyone else of Kurt Tippett in the way he moves and and takes the ball at the highest point? Expecting floods of 'no hes nothing like Tippett'. 🙉

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 23

    The job isn't done yet. Beat GWS , take confidence out of winning a big game at the MCG against a damn good side, take momentum into the finals and finish 5th with a home final. (or 4th and the double chance if Freo produce a miracle vs Pies).
  4. Amazing how relatively inexperienced we still are. Makes me a bit angry actually with all the pressure heaped on us by the media and yes, the supporters. Id like to know our average age/games played compared to all the other clubs.

    Losing Jack Viney

    Yup, that will likely be the swap. I will feel for Spargo who has played so much of the season and performed well, but hes 18 and had a long career ahead of him. Jack Viney for a tiring 18 year old is about a big as an upgrade as you can get. Bring on the Elimination Final!

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    Yes it was rigged. And yet somehow we still won. #demonpride

    Wallace Calls Out Goody

    Goody has said all season that it only matters where you are at the end of Round 23. He has shown so much patience and faith in the team. He looks like a genius now compared to media clowns like Terry Wallet.

    Waleed to the rescue.....

    I saw the title and fairly assumed it was an article from The Onion.

    https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/the-questions-the-demons-need-to-answer-20180818-p4zy94.html It is the ladder that says what would happen if the team that lost the close games won them instead. So what would happen this year if the teams that lost games by 10 points or less won them? The answer? Melbourne would be two games clear on top of the ladder. Decisively the best team in it, two games clear of Richmond on top.

    Our last three games vs West Coast have all been in Perth... we have had 2 wins and 1 loss, which was by less than a goal. I was gonna whine that we never get to play them in Melbourne, but they are our bunnies over there now, a sweet feeling after they dominated us for the best part of a decade when we were terrible.

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    Well we choked vs decent opposition the last two games, and now we go back to playing some teams out of the 8. vs St.Kilda at the MCG vs Fremantle in Darwin vs Western Bulldogs at the MCG Must win all three. If we drop one of these games we will find it very hard to make the finals with a very tough run home.

    Changes v GWS Giants

    Keilty will surely get another contract, especially with Pedersen almost certain to retire.

    Been waiting a long, long time for opposition supporters to say that about us, and boy does it feel good.

    The Ox reaction to yesterday's win!

    Fantastic. And David Neitz was at the game in the crowd.

    Who Do You Want ?

    Geelong Gelong Geelong We owe them big time. They were lucky to beat us twice by less than a kick both times, and of course then there is 186... Imagine kicking Selwood, Dangerflog, Ablett and the unbearable Chris Scott out of the finals...

    Stranger things have happened. At least its in Perth, and maybe the Dockers will want to avenge their woeful performance vs the Cats.

    Dean Kent, Aaron Vandenberg and Mitch Hannan

    Frost has improved out of sight. Even his kicks have been hitting targets and hes lowering the eyes. Looks like a new player.

    How far will we get?

    I am laughing now. The name Meth Coast never fails to deliver a chuckle.

    Who will be the next Dees Brownlow Winner

    http://www.afl.com.au/brownlow-medal/predictor Gawny up to 21 votes... Oliver on 18. Would be nice if the umps recognized ruckmen for once... Gawn and Grundy could duke it out for the medal.

    Mitch Hannan Signs on until 2020

    Well done to Mitch. Took his opportunity with both hands and was a key factor in the win that got us to the finals for the first time in 12 years. 13 touches, 6 marks, 3 goals, great pressure and almost a couple of huge grabs. Wouldn't be surprised if he gets votes from the coaches. A dangerous player who will only get better. 😈

    Changes v GWS Giants

    Garlett isnt coming in.. he was woeful vs the Swans and from all reports, woeful at Casey. Doubt he will even be on the list next year. We have enough small-mid creative forwards anyway... Hannan, Kent and Melksham a nice little trio indeed.
  22. I bet they aren't laughing now. Melksham is a bloody star. Thanks Essendruggos!!

    Losing Jack Viney

    https://www.sen.com.au/news/2018/08/20/injured-demons-skipper-viney-will-be-cherry-ripe-for-first-final-goodwin/ Great news. Selection for the first final will be very interesting, especially if we beat GWS and all the mids perform well.

    Match Report - Round 22

    It reads so beautifully when laid out like that.. almost like a novel. *sheds a tear*
