we are playing geelong (arguably one of the best teams ever) at their home ground while they are on the rebound after losing 2 games in a row for the first time in 2 years - they have brought back in 1/2 dozen premiership players....I think this was always on the cards.

Don't know why, on such a windy day, they think that up-and-unders in Robbo's general direction are a good tactic. How many times is he going to get it against 3 opponents all 10cm taller than him? Has to be the lowest-percentage play possible.

robbo is a low percentage non trying footballer, iv been watching fall to the ground for 12 seasons, hes a disease in that forward line,if he didnt play with neitz beside him for 200 odd games he would be lucky to have 250 goals beside his name,he simply doesnt try when the opposition have the ball.

Ok, so matchday live on afl.com says that Bate drilled one from about 80 out... Is this true?

Jurrah about the only one that's shown something in my books (and Bruce is battling away hard in his 200th). His (Jurrah) pass to Petterd to set up our first goal was exquisite. Also, I think Bartram might be playing for his career and is playing really well, I think he can hold his head high. However, today Geelong are a cut above us.

Interesting to hear everyones thoughts on the Female commentator.

I don't think Richo is bringing much to the table.

I don't like her voice really, Just started to listen to it but it's doing nothing for me.

Don't really like hearing tim lane's voice either.

This is one of those games you'd love to sit and watch the replay with the umpires and get them to have to justify every carp decision.

Why are we bothering?

The umpires are going to make sure that the Cats win the premiership this year. Just call it off now - hand them the flag, hand us scully and we can all concentrate on how poor the Aussie cricket team are (don't get me started on those impires!!!!).

Seriously, the 1st half today was the most biased, 1 sided display of umpiring i've seen all year. You can't touch Geelong, and nothing they do gets paid. Its not like they need the assistance.

Would love the Cats to lose second place on percentage because they couldn't make any inroads after half time.

This game will please everyone. We lost as we knew we would so the tankers are happy, but we showed plenty, especially the young guns (but god how we need Scully!). Take away the charity goals and the junk-time goals to the Cats and it's even better.

Yep a great result.

The first quarter was the thing that killed us, because from there we won two of the three remaining quarters and really did well shutting Geelong's attack off the half back line... except for bloody Scarlett, who might be the only defender that needs to be defended!

The best aspect of today was that Jurrah, Grimes, Bennell and Morton showed the most exciting glimpses out on the ground, which gives us a lot of hope.

Jurrah and Grimes are on their way to superstardom, and Morton up forward is definitely a good future prospect.

To our credit we didn't completely crap ourselves after the first quarter and stood up.

The margin is about right when the worst team in the competition (apologies to Freo), play the best team in the competition.

Absolutely agree on Jurrah Grimes Bennell and Morton, but i'm surprised nobody has mentioned Bate. He was really good today, kicked some great goals and put on a lot of pressure up the ground. He may have been crap early in the season, but lately he's been showing a lot. If he keeps this up he's definitely going to be sticking around.

Master Bate played an excellent game today. Put him in front of a class Midfield & he will perform no doubt.

Agree on Bater! He is having a decent year in a forwardline that has been getting some pretty ordinary delivery from the midfield. Big future for Bater IMO

Call me sexist but i couldnt stand Kelli Underwoods call today, her voice is horrible, she makes alot of mistakes and she goes way over the top on nothing plays. If it was a male commentator she d be laughed off. But then when you look at blokes like Wallsy i probably shouldnt criticise..............

Not a good voice for radio either. Actually she looks much better than she sounds. Needs some timbre. Actually, as a woman, she could rightly get away with a few "what a turn on" (s) and "delicious" (s).

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
