Omac was fantastic. He was literally the only player who did not panic once. Kudos to him. 

Lewis needs to retire and Bugg needs to sign a VFL contract.

Very generous. Started off well but again showed he is limited skill wise. Early in the game had an easy hit up for Hogan and bombed it to no one, just not a one touch player. Seemed to play a lot at half forward, his development is just going around in circles.

Bit harsh on Brayshaw's skill level compared to what else was on display today by MFC. He was far from the worst

Brayshaw : Showed good signs. Competed

Melksham : Missed the train

Harmes : Missed the train

MFC : Dry Weather "Footballers"

HFC : Showed what desire can do.

OMac : Doubters silenced now.

Hibberd : Confused in his role

Lever : Should Mark. Spare Defender : Lacking confidence

It is what it is, but I had hoped for more class from a number 3 draft pick and still hope it will magically change every time he returns to the team.

Jordan Lewis - Common Denominator (in past 3 Haw v. Melb games)

Not only are the recruiters stupid; but most of us supporters are as well.  Will never make one iota of difference with our push from 9-14 to 4-8.  None.  Never would.  Liability in speed....goes to ground.  How many bloody players did O'Meara beat home from the Sicily torp.  He gave 4 of us 10 metres start.  Can't hide Jordan back as the +1 for ever.

 

Clarkson and Adelaide have played with the Melbourne Football Club in past year or 2.  Combine that with the stupidity of letting Viney return after 2 weeks following PF surgery.....and the Camp fiasco....

 

This club lacks brains, heart and guts.

Lever was side by side in the middle of the ground, then not even in the camera shot by the end. As bad as Hunt was, we need him back with this press.

After watching that debacle today the last player I would be questioning is Brayshaw! Not the best for us maybe, made some errors yes but kept battling on and getting a lot right by the way,  while many of his more experienced team mates went missing in action. Can’t make mistakes when you aren’t in the contest, how often have we seen this over the last 12 years. We had quite a few older heads not in the action when needed. I suggest you watch the replay WTM.

Admittedly, my stream was in and out for the second half. I 100% agree there were many worse. It was more of me disagreeing with Joeboys assessment than actually thinking Brayshaw was one of our worst. There was a lot of competition for that. 

I just wouldn't call that an 'impressive' performance from Brayshaw. He must have had 7 or 8 touches in the first 10 minutes, then faded out of the game. 

It was a hard day to find a winner for us and tbh I don't think I could sit through a replay of that junk.

    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

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The
