Harsh on Smith, one of our only triers

I'll echo the others and say you were very harsh on Smith.

Also Gus sacrificed himself today to tag Phillips out of the game.  It meant he wasn't as prolific with the ball, but Phillips has been on fire and he shut him completely out of the game.  He deserves some credit for that.

No he doesn't, both were in my fantasy and neither scored!

But in the grand scheme of things, Gus in the middle has been responsible for our uptick in form over the last few weeks. Not sure why you'd move him out of there.

So Gus deserves no credit for tagging Phillips out of the game?  Righto.

Interesting coaching move to put your most recently prolific ball getter in a tagging role.

Needs to be analysed a little more methinks

Why?  Goodwin was probably backing others in to step up, while the coaching staff obviously felt that Gus could tag him out of the game, which he did.  Unfortunately some of our mid tier players didn't step up, so I'd be looking at that more than I'd be looking at the decision to use Gus in a negating role.

According to your comments Joeboy, McDonald, Fritch and Oliver played on their own against Collingwood. 3 versus 22 , a commendable effort to get within 7 goals.You do tend to put players down whenever we lose don't you? It's called a knee jerk reaction.

burning a key mover on a tagging role is not a percentage play ...use another if you want to do that.

Example .. play Stretch and replace Hannan

Goodwin rarely wins the tactical battles against the better teams it seems

The first line was a joke... clearly.

The second questioned the move to use him as a tagger in the first place, not his effort. When you have a player like Gus, and Clarry also, who give you such drive from the middle and are in great touch, why use him in a negating role?

A general negative tone to the 3 word analysis and rightfully so. Thought Smith was ok. Probably the only one I disagreed with

Oh well once you get smashed in the clearances all day as we were, many players are going to look bad no matter how hard they try. So the 3 word analysis will reflect that but not inform us a lot.

Viney - Opposite of Jenkins

He's a big man in a small mans body...Jack needs to learn to change his first option from trying to barge through to bringing teammates into the game.

He's not Patrick Cripps and it catches him out against good tough midfields.

Jack will never be a good captain until he learns his game.

    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

    DRAFT STORY: THE BYSTANDERS by Whispering Jack

    It was an eerie feeling, like floating on air high above the events taking place on the ground below. This was the New Draft, a two day festival of little importance to Melbourne supporters on the first night and seemingly, of little consequence on the following day. It was as if we were the bystanders of the 2018 AFL National Draft. From the time the Demons traded away their first round selection in this year’s event as part of the deal to secure Jake Lever more than 12 months ago, it was
