Get excited! 

I just can't see Tyson playing for whatever reason, and I refuse to believe we won't play T Mac.

I’ll go final bench of:

I/C: A.Brayshaw, B.Vince, T.McDonald, T.Bugg

I’m up in sunny Queensland where the game starts at 6.05pm our time so I’ll know the result an hour before you guys ?.

Do they have to reduce the squad or can they play eight interchange players?

"Sunny Qld"...??!  That's funny Jack!  We've had 440mms of rain in the past fortnight, and still no sign of that strange orb in the sky!  You telling little porkies to try to make your Southern mates envious, or somethin'?  (Or, have you not bothered to leave the inner bowls of the Pub where you happen to be holed up, to see what it's REALLY like on the outside...?  LOL)

Just out of back surgery, looking forward to getting home and onto the couch and watching this one. I reckon the Saints are going to take this one pretty seriously. 

Is TMac playing?

Considering he didn't train the other day and is named on an extended bench my conspiracy theorist manual tells me no.

Do 2018 members get in for free this year?

General admission to home games x 3 matches per year, enter through Gate 3. Sadly. Other than that, if you want a seat called 'reserved', you hafta pay. If you want a seat where you can see the game at the 'G, it costs between $60-75; other 'seats' are reserved down at the Richmond end goals for around $50-60. The Ponsford stand (City end) is better seating but still behind the goals a long way from the far end of the ground, and same price as Richmond-end seats.

Arrangements with Ticketeck are not good. Rather get there early and pick up members' tickets at the Demon shop, eliminating the two middlemen: Ticketeck and the AFL, itself. C'est la vie!

'Fristchy Business' to snag 5 tonight

Trac and Clarry to work into some form 

Saints will go in hard and it will be a good hit out for round 1.  a kick in it til 3/4 time and then we'll kick away

Strange that because I arrived today and the sun’s shining. It’s not blue skies everywhere but there is sunshine.

Just popped down the local and picked up a 10 Y.O. Glen Grant. I will dedicate one to you, and any other Scotch fans after we win. :P

Good onyer, Ding. I have a 3/4 bottle of Talisker to accompany me to the Netflix screen and a nice matured cheddar to assist me to overcome the inevitable blues about umpiring decisions against the MFC. Have a ripper night watching the footy.

    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 two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    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
