It's one of our last remaining home and away hoodoo. Will we break it?

Probably not now Melksham has opened his mouth. There seems to be a correlation between an MFC player opening their mouth about the importance of the next game, etc and the team turning in an insipid performance in said game.

They match up well on us for inside mids and their talls tend to kill us

It wasn’t a serious question but your points are valid.

Last year we dismissed it and said the hoodoo was a non issue. Goodwin made an effort to say it was in the past and had no relevance.

If we can't win when we dismiss it, then saying the opposite must mean we win.

"If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right."

We could lose every game this season and i wouldn't care as long as we beat North. I [censored] hate North, every encounter with a North fan has led me to hating the club more. Not to mention two games i've attended have both been North belting us by 60+ and 90? points. If we win i'll make sure every North fan knows about it. It's all their [censored] club has going for them. I hope they move to Tassy or fold, [censored] north melbourne.

I was at Blundstone last year and had my entrance into the rooms after game rooms guaranteed.

On principal after the game I declined.

North by 1 point this time !

We should treat every game as if it is an AFLX Round Robin match.

Amen.

I want to win this game more than I want to play finals this year. I know that's irrational, but I just can't stand North!

Every supporter of theirs that I've ever met (all 3 of them?), was a horrible human being.

if we had beaten North twice last year we finish on 14 wins and 6th place and North finish on 4 wins in last place

T Mac and Viney out is a big hit to our on field leadership. importantly our younger leadership that the other young guys follow.  it will be  a close game but I hope and pray we can win

While you may think that it will be on an airplane with your tail between your legs, I am sure it will be more along these lines.

The fires will have been caused by furious Demon supporters and ironically enough, you may have to be evacuated by chopper from a stadium too!

Me.

After our loss to North in Hobart (North were garbage that day, coming off an 8 game losing streak and we still lost!) I've resigned to the fact that we simply can't beat them.

It's not our fault that Cunnington, Higgins, Waite, Brown, Tarrant, Wood and Ziebell all conspire against us to collectively play their best games of the year.

It's as if Brad Scott says to his players "rest up for a few weeks so you can be cherry ripe for Melbourne."

I'm actually more confident of beating Richmond on Anzac eve than I am North.

I think we will win, but each time I go into Demonland I end up singing "19th Nervous Breakdown" in my head. I blame Whispering Jack.

We should beat the b#$$%^& by 10 goals or more. I am however ready for any result.

    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
